Here is a little snippet from A Haught Date – Now available
“Are you following me?” she asked, then cursed her flippant tongue. He could be waiting to use the bathroom, or maybe he was waiting for someone to come out of the other bathroom.
The way he studied her made her want to preen and flutter her eyes—it was official; she had learned nothing about staying away from beautiful men. Gemmi stood in front of him now, taking in the line of admirers that littered the wall on both sides. Hot men made her stupid; she needed a T-shirt or at the very least a button stating that fact. He bent his head and leaned closer to her, and she took that last step.
“Yes.” His voice was deep and seductive, like audible chocolate, and her mouth watered for a taste. A shiver of awareness snaked down her spine. She peered up into bright sterling-silver eyes lined with a dark steel ring and almost forgot what she had asked.
“Why? Did you want something?” Gemmi knew it sounded like she was flirting, but there was a good reason for that—she was. His left eyebrow arched, making him appear surprised or maybe intrigued.
“There is something I’d like,” he said, and she wished that something was her.
“Wait. Did all these women follow you back here?” Gemmi watched him observe his surroundings and shadowed his line of vision. Women smiled and waved at him. When he looked back at her, he had the decency to appear chagrined. She bit back a groan. She was not going to like this guy. No. Not going to happen.
“I’m not sure. I was trying to track you down,” he said. He looked earnest, but he could just be good at duping people. She yearned to figure out what was going on, but then his quick smile broke out, and her stupid little heart started pounding hard.
“You’re like the Pied Piper of women.”
“Well, maybe you’d like to do a good deed for the day and save me.” This rugged man didn’t appear to need saving. He looked like he could save them all with his eyes closed.
“That’s not how the story goes.”
“You can always change the story,” he said.
She’d wanted spontaneous good times and fun, and here it was, wrapped up in one super sexy package. The sudden irresistible urge to do something totally out of character seemed to come out of nowhere. It was true she had wanted this man since she saw him, although she couldn’t believe he had actually followed and waited for her. Could she save him from these women in the hall? Unlikely. Did she want to? Hell yes.
