The Last Time
Actor Seth Carbery swears he will never fall in love again, that is until he meets private detective Bethany Snow.
Something strange is going on. Seth and other members of the movie cast and crew are receiving threatening letters, but no threat has ever been carried out... yet. Bethany Snow is sent on location by the Black Agency to investigate, and guard Seth Carbery against danger.
The case is not what it first seems and even when Bethany thinks it could be over, a new twist means she becomes a target.
Seth and Bethany find they can’t keep their hands off each other.
Who is sending the letters and why? Does Seth have a secret admirer or stalker?
...a quirky story of what people do for love
Seth took a deep breath. He held out the latest death threat letter he received. Sara stood up, walked around her desk, and yanked it out of his hand.
“When did it arrive? I thought John was dealing with the mail before it got to any of the cast.” She studied it as Seth remained silent. “Well?” she asked, confirming her contempt for Seth.
He shook his head. “I don’t know. I found it under my door when I got up.”
Sara raised her eyebrows. “Well, someone must have seen who did it. There are security people everywhere and it can’t be easy to stuff a letter under the door of a trailer.”
“It’s no good looking at me like that. I got up, took a shower, wandered into the kitchenette, and there it was on the floor by the door. Has anyone else received one?”
Sara sighed. “No. You are the only one getting them now. I just wonder if it’s some woman you pissed off. I mean, there have been so many.”
Seth looked down at the faux parquet, vinyl floor of her office.
“If that’s what you think,” he said softly. Leaving her with the letter still in her hand, he stalked out of the administration trailer. Once out in the crisp, sunlit morning, Seth allowed himself to feel the pain fully. He walked over to the river that ran by The Village—as the cast and crew called the place—where all the residential trailers were parked. The whole place was alive with people. Seth heard the sounds of the scene being filmed in the distance. He wasn’t in the shoot that day and was thankful for it. He stared at the fast flowing river as it ran by, winding all the way through where movie sets had been placed. The sun gave it several dimensions of color, light, and shade. Seth picked out the different greens he liked. He thought about what Sara said. So, she still thinks I was unfaithful to her. That hurts like hell…even after six months. I was never unfaithful to her. That was a spiteful lie.
Seth ran a hand through his hair and looked around him. He saw a bench seat down by the riverbank. He walked over to it and sat down. When they were together, he thought he loved Sara and that she loved him. But she couldn’t have…
He thought about the way she dropped him after the first letter arrived, preferring to believe some anonymous hate mail to his protestations of innocence. He realized she never loved him. Seth sighed and leaned forward, his hands pressed together between his knees as he thought about it all. He wasn’t a womanizer—in fact he felt very short on women’s company. He met Sara in the studios before they went on location. It was his first real relationship in two years and broke a drought for him. His work kept him busy and tired, so he certainly didn’t have a bunch of irate ex-lovers trailing him around or sending him hate mail. Seth heard the sound of the planned explosion on set and looked up. Smoke drifted in the air behind the low hills across the river. He left his coffee on the kitchenette table in his trailer in the hurry to give Sara the letter but wanted it now. He stood up and walked back to his trailer, promising himself he would stop feeling hurt about Sara. It hurt too much. He would never love another woman. This would be the last time.
