He couldn't let her leave. Not without a fight. The spasm of panic shocked him, even as it pounded angry and insistent through his blood. For a momentjust oneDr. Shane Bartlett had to fight the horrible urge to give in and beg, but he knew any display of emotion would be his doom. For the sake of his patients, he had to ignore the choking sense of dread rising inside him and continue. Jaw tight, Shane dragged a hand through his hair. If he was to win her over, persuasion had to be doled out in degrees of charm and skill. Putting aside his frustration, Shane forced his heartbeat to slow to the same rhythmic cadence as the tick-tick-tick coming from the clock on the mantel behind him. "Please, Miss Marley," he said, curving a pleasant smile along the edges of his mouth. "I only ask that you hold off making a final decision until you hear me out." Her gaze remained direct and unwavering. But instead of responding right away, she clamped her lips shut and scrunched her forehead into a web of hard, vertical lines. Shane felt his chest heave. Trying to gauge how best to present his argument, he dropped a glance over the woman in one quick swoop. Dressed in a drab gray dress and equally uninspired shoes, her bland brown hair looked as if it might have corroded onto her head. Her starched collar matched her rigid spine. In fact, she sat so straight and so far back in her chair, Shane was amazed the pattern from the upholstery hadn't tattooed itself to her dress. When he raised his gaze to meet hers, the cold eyes and pursed lips reminded him of the women he'd encountered throughout his childhood on the streets of New York City. His instinct was to dismiss her at once. But he owed it to everyone involved to put his own feelings aside and conduct this interview with polite professionalism. Taking another moment to control his emotions, Shane lowered his chin and scanned the references he held in his hand. He couldn't deny Miss Marley had the nursing experience he needed in an assistant. Her background was without blemish, her training impeccable. But did she have the temperament required for the unique position he offered? There was one way to find out. "The Charity House orphans are" "Orphans?" Her eyes went narrow and frosty, while her lips curled with pitch-perfect disgust. "You use that term loosely, Dr. Bartlett." A muscle shifted in his jaw and Shane felt his smile slip. Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these At the reminder of Jesus's words, Shane had to fight back a wave of resentment at the woman's sanctimonious attitude. "Perhaps they are not orphans in the literal sense," he acknowledged with a grim twist of his lips. "However, they are children who" She snorted. She actually snorted at him. The sound was harsh enough to stop him in midsentence. "These children." He paused to emphasize his point, but then a dull drumming pounded in his e Fiction Fiction eBook, Steeple Hill
