Jane (I’m Still Single) Jones by Joan Reeves

“I guess we don’t have to flip a coin to see who gets Morgan then?” Felicia asked. “You’re welcome to the man,” Jane said icily. She’d die before she’d allow anyone to think she had ever been smitten with the class genius. “I hope his money makes up for his looks because he certainly wasn’t much in high school.” “Jane Louise!” Amber said sharply, “You shouldn’t say things like that.” “I’m just speaking the truth.” Jane’s voice rose, unaware that the room had fallen silent. Bent on making sure no one thought she was manhunting, she said, “I’m not looking for a husband. I’m happy in my unmarried state, and I wish everyone in town would realize that. Felicia gave her an odd look. “So you don’t think Morgan is a good catch?” “I wasn’t impressed by him ten years ago so why should I change my mind just because he’s acquired a few bucks in the bank?” “Actually, that’s ten million in stocks, bonds, precious metals, and bucks in the bank,” a deep voice behind her corrected. Jane whirled and came face to face with a dark-haired man who towered over her. His mouth stretched in a smile that revealed dazzling white teeth. A silly thought flitted through her stunned brain. The better to eat you with, my dear. He wasn’t the big bad wolf, but she felt a lot like Little Red Riding Hood at the moment. “Morgan!” Jane’s voice was a whisper, yet, in the suddenly silent auditorium, it rang out.
