EXCERPT:
Nerves flutter in my gut, thinking about having to meet Killian and leaving my home. I spend over an hour getting ready, taking time to straighten then curl my hair. I carefully add makeup to my face. I step into my dress, slip on my shoes, and add my jewelry. Then I spray perfume on my wrists and dab my neck. When I finish, I study myself in the full-length mirror, looking for any signs of imperfection or that I was crying.
Content I don't see anything, I stroll through my wing and go down the stairs. Voices, including Russian and Tully's Irish accent, hit my ears. I pause. Why are there Russian people in the house? Did I get it wrong, and Killian is some sort of Irish wanna-be who's really Russian? Am I going crazy?
I get to the bottom of the steps and turn the corner to go inside the living room. I bump into a hard chest, go flying backward, and a strong arm circles around my waist. He pulls me close to him, and a loin-curling aphrodisiac flares in my nostrils. I'm pretty sure it's mint, orange blossom, and bourbon vanilla. I don't think I've ever smelled anything so intoxicating. His deep voice sends a delicious chill down my spine. "Whoa, lass."
I glance up, and green flames lick my skin, creating the most intense set of tingles I've ever experienced. Suddenly, it's hard to breathe against his hard flesh.
A cocky expression appears. I want to smack it off him even though I'm sure I have wet panties from it. "Arianna Marino. We finally meet."
My face turns hot, and he licks his lips as his smug expression grows. His eyes wander to my chest then back to my face. His large palm slips to my ass, and damn if it doesn't feel like it belongs there.
His hot breath merges into mine and he states, "You look nice."
My nerves annihilate me. "You want to remove your hands from me?"
He smirks. "I don't know. Are you sure you want me to?"
