Channeling Rhett Butler


My name is Sawyer Rawlings. I’m the Chief of Police here in Oyster Bay. My job used to be fairly mundane until Time Magazine put us on the map. Then the creeps arrived and we haven’t had a dull moment since.
I lost my wife to cancer several years ago and now I spend my free time reading and painting. I love three things: Hawaiian shirts, chocolate milk, and Olivia Limoges.

I know she’s a bit damaged, a little abrupt, and can’t seem to separate from her dog, but she’s also beautiful and intelligent and generous and damned fascinating.
Could we be the next Scarlett and Rhett? Maybe those things only happen between the pages of books, but a man can dream. A man can plan…
Who is your favorite literary couple?

  5. My favorite couple is Roarke and Eve.

    Sawyer, don't worry about separating Olivia from her dog, in her desire to be with you, the dog problem will take care of itself.

    Hang in there.
