My Hero gets the talk from his Dad | Most Eligible Bachelor by @empibaryeh | #FathersDay #LAPLoveNotes

Happy Father's Day! In commemoration of the day, I'm sharing a snippet from my debut novel Most Eligible Bachelor, which features a conversation between my hero and his father. This happens to be a scene that one of my readers really liked, so I hope you enjoy the snippet.


Magazine columnist Chantelle Sah doesn’t celebrate Valentine’s Day—not since her fianc√©’s betrayal three years ago. After botching her first assignment as a feature writer, she’s more than willing to put in a hard day’s work this Valentine’s Day; even if it means going on a date with gorgeous construction Tycoon, Lord McKenzie, and opening herself to an onslaught of all things love.

When Lord—his given name, not a title—sets his sights on Chantelle, it isn’t just work he has on his mind. But even he couldn’t have predicted the magnetic attraction between them when they meet, nor the evening ending with more than an interview. Now he has to convince Chantelle that their one-night stand wasn’t a mistake. Can he win her love without revealing a secret from their night of passion, which could prove fatal for both their hearts?

“I’m going to ask her to marry me.”
Brave words, considering she’d walked out of his life. At least, that was what she thought, but he intended to convince her to take him back.
Mr. McKenzie came to sit down again. “It’s the right thing to do.”
“I’m not doing it because it’s the right thing.” Confessing his feelings seemed to take a load off his shoulders. He wanted to rush out and yell it to the world, but for now he’d have to settle for an audience of one. “I love her.”
“She’s a lovely young woman, but,” Mr. McKenzie said, cautiously. “Are you sure about this?”
“I’ve never been more certain about anything in my life, Papa.”
“Son, marriage and babies are very different from bachelorhood. Your life isn’t yours anymore. Your family has to come before you every time.”
Great. Thirty-three years old and he was getting “the talk.”

I hope you enjoyed the read. Leave me a comment. While you're here, please share a 'dad' story.
