Guy has arrived in Dublin for a short stay in order to meet the lawyer who is dealing with the legacy in which he has a half-share. At the airport, he meets a young woman who is struggling with a broken wheel on her suitcase, and carries her bag to the taxi rank.
“If you're heading into Dublin, maybe we could share this cab?” At least it would be a way of prolonging his acquaintance with this bubbly girl. An attractive one, too, with her dark shiny hair framing her face.
As they set off, he smiled at his companion. “I’m Guy Sinclair, by the way.”
“And I’m Jenna Sutton - pleased to meet you.”
She stuck out her hand to shake his and he liked the way her face and eyes lit up when she smiled, especially her eyes - mid-brown, a warm coppery color. He was always a sucker for eyes.
He's in for a surprise when he discovers she's the co-inheritor, isn't he?
Here's how I imagine Jenna
Many thanks to everyone who visits each Sunday, and for your encouraging comments.
Here's my first (very rough!) draft of the 'blurb' for 'Irish Inheritance' for those of you who want to know more about this story:
English actress Jenna Sutton and American artist Guy Sinclair first meet when they jointly inherit a house on the west coast of Ireland. Curious about their unknown benefactress and why they are both considered as 'family', they gradually work out their links to the original owners of the house. At the same time as they are uncovering a nineteenth century love story, they struggle against their mutual attraction to each other. The two lovers in the past were destined not to have a happy ending, and it seems the same thing will happen to their two descendants - or will it?
