Callie’s heart ached for Burke Lonigan, for the little boy inside him who still longed for a father’s love and attention. “Not really. ” Burke harrumphed. “Old Seamus died last week. I was out of the country. On business. His family —his legitimate children—didn’t even bother to try to contact me. I wasn’t here for my own father’s funeral. ” Burke lifted his head from her lap, then slowly pulled himself into a sitting position. ” Callie wrapped her arms around him and hugged him to her. Engulfing her in his embrace, Burke melted against her.

He looked directly at her, but she knew he was looking through her. It was so obvious that his mind had drifted away to another time and another place. From the expression on his handsome face, she surmised that his memories were painful. “Mr. ” He chuckled. ” When she opened her mouth to tell him her name, he shushed her. “No, no, don’t tell me.
He chuckled. ” When she opened her mouth to tell him her name, he shushed her. “No, no, don’t tell me. I’ll just forget it anyway. I could call you love, I suppose. But that doesn’t suit, does it? Why don’t I call you my darling? ” He inspected her thoroughly. “Besides, you look like a darling to me. So tell me, my darling, what did you do when your fiancé dumped you? ” Burke excused himself for a trip to the bar, but when he asked if she’d like another, she declined.
