I never come in second—that's just how my daddy raised me.
Except now, I find myself willingly choosing exactly that—being second. Publicly, I might seem to serve at the governor's pleasure, but that's nothing close to the truth.
He serves me at mine. Especially the pleasure part.
We both serve my husband, Carter. Or, as Owen dubbed him long ago, the bastard extraordinaire.
I never knew what I was really getting into when I met Owen and Carter. Maybe it's better I didn't. Maybe I would've run away if I had.
Boy, how I love him. Both of them. Somehow, they make being second okay. And in eight years?
It'll be my turn.
I am Susa Evans, lieutenant governor of the great state of Florida.
