“Mesdames Deacon and Cho?” a male voice called just before we made it outside.
Lu turned and started back. I swore under my breath and joined her.
I assumed this was Matthieu Durand. He was about my height and blond with those icy blue eyes that sometimes looked gray. He carried a weariness in his face that was somehow charming. His clothes were rumpled, in a very French chic way.
He looked at us and smiled and it made him hot—not as hot as Jake—but definitely in the top ten of men I knew.
I turned to say something to Lu. My mouth snapped shut. She was blushing and I saw a shine in her eyes that had been missing since her husband died.
– Charity and Lu’s first meeting with Matthieu
