On a December morning, Alia Nash stood in line at a New York coffee shop. Her phone’s ringtone sounded her favorite Christmas carol, and she juggled her shopping bag filled with Christmas presents to pull her phone out of her purse. The name pulsing on the screen like a heartbeat was Brenda’s—Alia’s assistant.

“Hey, Bren.” Alia clutched the phone to her ear and moved one step closer to the pastry case. “I’m almost there.” She looked at the line in front of her and counted the customers waiting for their orders. “Just four people ahead of me, and then I can pick up our order.”

“I hope so.” Brenda’s voice had a catch that made Alia stiffen. “This is the third call I’ve received from that business broker. His client is very interested in the buy-in you offered and wants to finalize a deal today.”

“I told him I couldn’t discuss the specifics until after the new year.” She had to think fast. Granted, she’d mentioned she might be interested in a business partner. Now business was picking up. She didn’t want a partner if she didn’t need one. “Stall him. Tell him I have a family thing, and I can’t change my plans.”

“I did tell him that.” Brenda exhaled heavily. “He said it wouldn’t take long.”

The person standing behind Alia tapped her shoulder, and she looked up to see the smiling barista waiting for her.

“I’m getting our order now.” Alia stepped to the counter. “Hang on. I’ll be there in five, and then we can figure out a game plan.”

“Okay, I’ll tell him … I don’t know what I’ll tell him, but hurry. He’s really pushy. ’Bye.” Brenda hung up.

Alia stood at the counter and waved her phone over the scanner to pay for her order. She juggled the tray the barista handed her, then stepped out of line. Her phone rang again. Rushing toward the door, she looked from the cardboard box holding eight cups of coffee and a pastry bag filled with croissants and muffins to her vibrating purse.

Something solid struck her shoulder with a powerful thud and spun her around. She gasped and juggled the coffee cups that tipped toward the floor, then tipped toward her.

Strong hands clasped her shoulder. She swallowed at the rush of warmth that scooped air from her lungs. Her phone stopped ringing, and she winced. She didn’t want to miss any business deals.

“Are you all right?” The deep, accented voice brought her head up to a pair of emerald green eyes.
