When you’re the last man standing…
Not only was Logan Delaney the last of his siblings to remain unmarried and unsettled, his entire family believed he’d never find a wife. The baby of eight, he’s been dubbed an irresponsible player and told he’ll never amount to a hill of beans. And at one time, Logan may have been okay with those descriptions, but no more. On a quest to prove his worth, he’s spent the entire summer learning the family business, staying in at night, and saving his money. And if his family would stop meddling in his affairs and trying to dictate who he should and shouldn’t be seeing, he might just show them he’s found the one, Lizzy Jenkins.
And have a bad reputation to blame…
Elizabeth Jenkins had always known Logan Delaney existed, but he’d never so much as turned one glance her way until she handed him his butt on a silver platter in three sentences or less over the phone. After that it seemed at every turn there he was and the more she resisted the heat building between them, the bigger the fire got. Until his family interfered. And why wouldn’t they? Between Logan’s legacy and her baggage, they were a disaster in the making.
Can you be trusted with a fragile heart?
But Logan doesn’t run when he finds out about Colby. In fact, he embraces Lizzy’s special needs son and defies the advice of everyone urging him to leave Lizzy alone. But after one moment of weakness, Logan finds himself knee deep in a marriage complete with the little boy whose father bailed before his birth and Lizzy’s grandfather, who needs constant care as well. Then there’s the man who just might be the demise of it all.
I have Logan and Lizzy here to interview with me today.
So, Logan, I understand you were a bit of a player before the summer. What was a good Friday night out for you?
Well, you get straight to the point, huh? LOL Yes, being the youngest of my clan (I have 7 brothers and sisters) I was left to my own devices a bit too long I suppose. A good Friday night? Miss Eden, it was more like a good Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday…repeat. There were a few places I used to frequent regularly around Seaford, places where the ladies were abundant and the drinks even more so. And it was nothing for me to traipse up to Dover to gamble. Basically my wallet was always empty and my bed had a revolving door on it…until Lizzy chewed my ass royal one day over the phone. First time we met and last time I wanted anyone but her.
Then the summer and you buckled down to learn the family business. What was the most important lesson you gained from that experience?
Yes ma’am, summer happened and for a while we thought our entire family would fall apart with Dad so sick. And experience? I learned just how damn hard a man has to work to please everyone and has to do it most of the time with his tongue clamped between his teeth. I had no idea how hard my dad and brothers really were working and then taking care of a family on top of that? Yeah, not for sissies!
What was your first thought when Elizabeth set you down on the phone that day?
Well, to be honest, at that point my head wasn’t doing the thinking…Hell, sometimes it still doesn’t do the thinking where she’s concerned.
Well, well, well. Interesting stuff.
Elizabeth, I see that you are a caregiver with a lot of responsibilities on your shoulders. What do you do to reenergize yourself in order to be able to handle all that’s on your plate?
Well, I used to not do anything for myself. I just kept going like the Energizer bunny and hoped my ass didn’t pass me before the day was over. Now that I have Logan to depend on a little bit, I take more me time. Heck, a trip to the store without anyone in tow is a treat, but Logan makes sure I get more than that. Sometimes the men in this family send all the women on spa days which last all day long. Come to think of it, maybe those are really designed to reenergize themselves…**glares at Logan** Logan Delaney…
So, what is your greatest joy?
My son. Raising a special needs child has been rough, but I wouldn’t trade a minute of having Colby in my life for anything in the world. He sees life through the eyes of innocence and reminds me daily if I will too life is so much easier.
Tell us about one goal you have for the future.
Finish nursing school! I’m close…but there’s been lots of baby making practice which has become quite a hindrance to progress. 😉
Thanks, Eden for having us over today. Hope you enjoy the Guinness cakes Nana sent with us.
Thank you both for coming by. (opening Guinnes cakes) Ummm heavenly!

February 17, 2013
With a mixture of emotions swirling through her, Lizzy watched the same storm overtake Logan’s features which was brewing inside her. A veritable lightning bolt passed between them as soon as he’d touched her. She knew she’d always been attracted to Logan, but the instant heat still scalding her skin from his fingers left her unsettled. It was but a mere couple of hours prior she was trying to convince herself she could do with some sort of quickie sexual gratification, although she’d admitted it could never be with Logan, and now she wanted nothing more and the door to her emotions was wide open leaving her vulnerable and believing maybe they could have both. And just as she was trying to tell herself to stop trusting the lies her deprived body was concocting, Logan decided to try to convince her he might be interested in more as well.
Where was Logan the player and who was the imposter sitting across the table from her who could probably talk her right into his bed with one sentence or less and keep her coming back heartbreak on the horizon or not?
As her pulse slowed a bit, she turned to look at Colby and reminded herself why she couldn’t be playing horizontal Twister with anyone let alone Logan. And she sure couldn’t go letting Colby think there was a reason to get too comfortable around him. He seemed to like Logan and the Delaney herd of kids and she didn’t want him getting his feelings hurt because she couldn’t control her hormonal urges. What if she made the mistake of screwing Logan’s brains out, things didn’t work out, and that made it awkward to be coming around anymore? This was the first time anyone had really taken them in and welcomed them unconditionally and she didn’t want to rob Colby of it.
