Tiger of eye
Eleanor Whitman had been a young girl with a crush, offering Keegan Taber her heart on a platter. Then he\'d made it ruthlessly clear he wanted nothing to do with it.
Eleanor hated the memory–and she hated him. And yet even four years later, the sight of Keegan made her weak in the knees.
Only, now she was no girl….Keegan had never forgiven himself for how he\'d treated Eleanor.
He\'d give anything to have her love him again. But Eleanor had moved on and was with another man.
All Keegan could do was hope that man didn\'t put a ring on her finger before he could win her back….
A retold version of a thrilling adventure by one of the most popular writers of fiction. Harry Fletcher has left a life of international crime behind him to run a game-fishing charter boat off the East Africa coast. But his past catches up with him.
The two men arrived in a taxi. \'Are you Harry Fletcher?\' the older man called out.
\'That\'s me,\' I replied. \'Welcome aboard the Wave Dancer.
\' \'Don\'t I know you?\' the taller man said. \'You\'re from London, aren\'t you?\' \'Yes, but I haven\'t been there for years,\' I answered.
\'Now about the fishing,\' I went on quickly. \'We\'ll have to leave early tomorrow morning.
\' \'We\'re not going fishing,\' the older man said. \'We\'re going diving.
\' He threw some money on the table. I did not ask any questions.
It was much more money than I had asked for. - Points for Understanding comprehension questions - Glossary of difficult vocabulary - Free resources including worksheets, tests and author data sheets at Macmillan Readers website.
