Boone ran a hand through his rumpled hair, and suddenly, Nina was mortified. "Did you give me your bed last night? I'm so sorry. Where did you sleep?"
He looked out the front door and sniffed the breeze at exactly the angle the dog in her dream had. "I was fine. Don't worry. Did you sleep okay?"
She nodded in quick, jerky movements, figuring that was better than the truth. Yes and no. I had the weirdest dreams. First, someone was trying to drown me, and then a huge dog stood guard over me.
"Would you like to shower before lunch?"
"A shower would be nice," she managed, looking around.
Boone motioned her through the double front doors of the little bungalow. A striped hammock hung on the porch, and a flagstone walkway led to the beach, just a few steps away. He gestured. To the right stood a stone wall shaded by lush plants with big, waxy leaves. Something silver glinted, and Nina stepped closer. Wow. It really was a shower. A gorgeous outdoor shower...
"I brought you a fresh towel," Boone said, suddenly very much a little boy. Then he mumbled something about privacy and hurried over to the beach, keeping his back turned. The hard set of his shoulders was the same as his face the night before: all promise, all protection. No fooling around.
Nina bit her lip. Well, the shower was half hidden by foliage. And if she showered fast...
The water was warm and soft - much softer than the salt water crusted on her skin. The shower head was huge, making the stream of water so broad, it felt like standing under a waterfall in an island paradise. The light touch of her hands on her body was comforting, though the dirty part of her mind had all kinds of bad ideas, like inviting Boone over to do her back. Her front, too.
He could do me all over, her inner vixen said.
Nina cleared her throat and reminded herself how lucky she was just to be alive. Boone hadn't said a thing, but the bump on her head was all the reminder she needed that someone had tried to kill her the previous night. Bit by bit, the soap cleansed more than just her skin, and the vanilla-scented shampoo felt like liquid silk in her hair. By the time she forced herself out of the shower and wrapped herself in the fluffy towel, she felt human again.
"All set," she called.
Boone ambled up. "Perfect. I'll just get you..."
His words slowed as he came closer, and his eyes locked on hers. His eyes glowed, and though Nina knew it had to be a trick of the light, she was mesmerized. Those eyes were so deep, so honest. So desperate for something. A drop of water slid from her hair to her chest, gliding slowly down her skin. Heat pooled in her body, and every breath felt deeper, slower. A great dam of words built in her mind, though none of them made sense and she didn't utter a sound.
"Boone?" a voice boomed from the distance, and they both snapped around. "You coming?"
Boone gave himself a little shake before calling back. "Be right there." He turned to her and murmured, "Lunchtime. You hungry?"
Starving, her inner voice purred.
