“Do you want to go with me to my aunt’s this evening?” Lizzie asked Crystal after they collapsed on the patio of a local restaurant, following their latest outing. Because Lizzie had been so distraught since she left Braden’s home, she’d kept herself occupied with yoga and working out with her trainer. And she’d gone shopping more times than she cared to count.

“Oh my God. Tell me it’s not Triple T night.”

“Yeah. It is.” For Lizzie, it was likely to be heavy on the tequila.

“I knew I shouldn’t have procrastinated on my chores. I love your aunt’s tacos.”

“You might be able to talk Aunt Virginia into giving you a to-go box, and then you wouldn’t have to worry about tomorrow’s lunch. That would save you some time.”

“Damn, girl. You know how to tempt me.”

“But no, right?” The truth was, Lizzie would appreciate her friend providing a distraction. Her mother had noticed Lizzie’s listlessness and the tears in her eyes each time she held Sandra’s newborn. Lizzie always managed to make her getaway before Mom could corner her, but earlier Eileen texted to say she wanted to talk. Lizzie’s time was up. And she had no idea what she was going to say.

“Is your man still calling you?”

“Braden Gallaher is not my man!”

Crystal leaned forward. “But you want him to be.”

“That’s not true.”

“Oh, girl. You’re lyin’ and you know it.” Crystal grinned.

“Fine.” Her friend was right, even if Lizzie didn’t want to admit it. “Yes. I’ve heard from him.” Twice, he’d sent flowers to her office. She’d promptly put them on the front desk for others to enjoy and so that she didn’t have to think about him every time she looked at them or inhaled their fragrance.

“So what’s the problem? Is he ugly?”

“No.” She shook her head with a grin. “Definitely not. A full-on hottie.”

Crystal picked up a napkin and waved it in front of her face. After they both succumbed to a round of giggles, she tried again. “Okay… He has to be craptacular in bed, right?”

“No!”

“Ha! So you did sleep with him!”

Instead of answering, Lizzie looked away to hide her embarrassment.

“Still not seeing what the problem is. Oh, wait! He’s unemployed. Bastard needs to get a job.”

“He’s loaded.” In the days right after he took her home, she’d spent hours doing research about him. She learned Braden hadn’t followed his dad into the family business, but rather, he went to work for a brokerage firm, then started his own company when he attained a seven-figure income.

Even though she had no doubt his influential friends allowed him access to their portfolios, the service he offered was unique. He spent his days talking to people, flying around the world, connecting investors with opportunities, some which were incredibly risky but carried great potential.

Unable to stop herself, she’d also looked into the Zeta Society. There was precious little on the internet about the society except for a couple of articles, including one from the 1930s. An enterprising reporter had seen several high-profile men in New Orleans for some sort of gathering, and he’d called them Titans.
