#ManCandyMonday Rafe from Stay the Night

I’m busy working on the next book in the Take a Chance series – Stay the Night. I’ve been having an interesting time of it since this is the story of a married couple who have grown apart over the years of Rafe’s military duty. Elena, Rafe’s wife, has been home and growing and changing over the years while Rafe feels like he’s been left behind, especially when he comes home to a very different, sexier more independent woman, and the home she’s just bought for them. It’s a lot of conflict early on as the couple have to decide if the passion that forced them into a marriage as teens has enough love to let them build a future together.

In an early scene in the book, Rafe is recollecting the first time he and Elena made love on the beach. I was looking for photos for today and this one caught my eye. I could picture a young Rafe resting beneath a pier, waiting for Elena for another of their passionate night time encounters.

I hope you all have a good Monday!
