He pretended an interest in the glass storefronts that lined the town square, even as he nodded toward the occasional pedestrian who studied him with blatant curiosity. He was guessing the small town thirty miles south of Baton Rouge didn’t get many visitors.
Of course, it was just as likely the men were staring because he was six foot four, with the hard muscles of a trained athlete that flexed and rippled beneath his faded jeans and ivory thermal shirt.
