The Great Pick Up Line
Welcome Denise Swanson as they share their Great Pick Up Line from Smart Girl Swept Away. Take it away Denise!
“Oh. My. God! You’re Sheri Davis.” Ridge’s expression was dazed. “You tutored me in Honors English for a good part of our senior year. You really saved my ass in that class. Without your help, I wouldn’t have gotten the A that I needed to get into Wash U.”
Had that been a flicker of guilt darting across his face? Sheridan curled her lip. No. Of course not. Ridge Sutton wouldn’t recognize that emotion, let alone experience it.
“What was all the mystery about?” His brows formed a perplexed vee over his nose. “Why didn’t you tell me who you were?”
“Why should I? It’s not as if we’re old pals,” Sheridan emphasized the last word. “Because if you had truly considered me a friend—not just some smart girl whose help you needed to keep your straight A average—you would have known me right away.”
Before Ridge could respond, Sheridan put her Lexus in gear and shifted into reverse. As she squealed out of the parking lot, she looked in her rearview mirror. Ridge stood exactly where she’d left him, an unreadable expression on his handsome face.
Smart Girl Swept Away by Denise Swanson
When feminist author Sheridan Davis is forced to return to Sutton Falls, Illinois to care for her estranged father, the last person she wants to run into is Ridge Sutton. Meeting Ridge, who has matured from handsome to gorgeous, while she looks as if she’s spent the night in a cardboard box. is so not how Sheridan pictured seeing her high school crush again. Especially not after what he and his friends did to her the night of their senior prom.
Ridge is tired of being dependable. Tired of trying to live up to his mother’s expectations. And most of all, tired of the life in which he’d allowed himself to become trapped. Tricked into a disastrous marriage that ended in a divorce and stuck in the role of Sutton Falls’ mayor, Ridge is ready for a change.
While floodwaters creep higher and higher, can Sheridan and Ridge make peace with their past? Or will their growing love be swept away in a sea of doubt?
