About Acting on Impulse:She's camera shy. He's a big star. Is love worth the limelight? Thirteen years ago, Chris McPherson drunkenly declared his love for Joy Albright... right in front of her husband. Though her angry rejection still stings, Chris, now a successful Hollywood actor, has never forgotten his feelings for her. When he returns to Silverweed Falls to direct a summer Shakespeare play, he is thrilled--and a little nervous--to learn that Joy will be managing the play.

stood at the door. He blinked in surprise, then swept her up and down with
appreciative eyes. Self-conscious, she fought the urge to clutch the collar of
her robe more tightly around her neck; she wasn’t going to give him the
“Why, Joy,” Chris gave her his
biggest smile. “I see you were expecting me.”
“I thought you were the UPS guy,” she growled.
“Lucky UPS guy. I never seriously
considered a career as a delivery man, but it’s starting to look pretty good.”
He narrowed his eyes thoughtfully. “Don’t tell me all those porn movies are
based in reality?”
“What porn movies? And what are you
“Ruining some poor UPS guy’s
evening, from the looks of it. And you know, those porn movies with the lonely
housewife and the delivery man.” He scratched his beard. “Come to think of it,
maybe it’s usually a pizza guy.”
She sighed. “Why don’t you come in
before my gossipy neighbors call the tabloids. How did you know where I live?”
“Your friend Eva pointed out your
house. I’m renting a place just a few streets over,” he explained as he stepped
in, catching the subtlest scent of perfume as he brushed past her.
His appreciation of the sight of
her had not been faked; the silky robe slid over her curves and slipped open at
the neckline to reveal a touch more cleavage than was probably intentional.
Still, the sight of her in her robe unnerved him in more ways than one.
“I’m not actually interrupting
anything, am I?” he asked, trying to hide the fear that he was.
“Would it matter if you were?” she
He gave her a look of surprised
innocence. “Hey, if you’ve got a delivery man stashed away somewhere, just tell
me and I’ll get out of your hair. But if you don’t, I actually came by to see
if you wanted to go out for dinner and talk over the production.” His heart was
pounding but he tried to keep his tone casual. Just two old friends getting
together for dinner. No biggie.
“I don’t think so, Chris. I’m ...
pretty wiped out.”
He nodded knowingly. “On account of
that emotionally draining encounter with your ex-husband?”
She gave an exasperated sigh. “For
crying out loud, is there no privacy in this town? How on earth did you know
“Sorry,” Chris said sincerely. “I
didn’t mean to spy on you, but I got into town this afternoon and met up with
Simon at that café. We were on the patio, and I saw the two of you through the
glass. You didn’t look happy, so I also came by to see how you were doing.”

“Do you really think we can do that?” “I think what we have is worth fighting for. We’ve both made our mistakes, and over time, we’ll make more. But we’ve got to learn from them and find a way to move on. It won’t always be easy, but together I believe we can do anything.” I gave his hand a gentle squeeze. “Besides, you’re my goose. I don’t want to live my life without you.” Max reached for me, pulling me towards him and pressed his lips against mine; then he kissed me with all the love he’d kept bottled up inside of him for the past ten years. It was soft and tender and filled with promise. I wrapped my arms around his neck and pulled him closer until there was no space left between us. Being with him felt like home, and my entire body melted into his. I’d imagined this moment so many times, but I never dreamed it would feel this wonderful. The boy I’d once known was now a strong, self-assured man, and I couldn’t get enough of him. A low moan escaped through my parted lips as he kissed me deeper, and suddenly everything changed, becoming frantic and full of need. We were about to get carried away, when Max suddenly broke the kiss. Our breaths were short and strained as he rested his forehead against mine. “Are you sure about this?”
