Elizabeth Shaw’s professional life is going according to plan until she meets the handsome widower and his two young children next door. Having shelved her personal life to land her dream job, she disregards her romantic feelings for him. But the forces of nature have other ideas for her.
Joe Antonetti has made his children his main focus since the death of his wife. But his beautiful neighbor becomes an irresistible distraction and has him wondering if he can change her priorities.
Surrendering to their attraction for each other causes another player to step in with his own plan for Elizabeth. One that could not only end the budding romance but her life as well.
Tag Line: There’s more to some women than meets the eye….and it takes the right kind of man to unleash her secrets.
Elizabeth raised a brow. “You were eavesdropping on us girls.”
He winked at her. “Guilty as charged.”
She willed him to wink at her again. The rush that followed that simple gesture was absolutely glorious.
Joe rose from his recliner. “I’ll be right back, I just want to check on the kids and see if they’re sleeping yet.”
Elizabeth kicked off her shoes, slid sideways on the couch, and stretched out her legs. Once comfortable, she flipped on the TV to the Weather Channel.
“Looking to see how your flight is going to be tonight?” Joe asked as he stepped back into the room.
He lifted her legs and slid underneath them. “And how are your little piglets tonight? Are they cold?” he asked as he wrapped his big warm hands around her toes.
“They are cold. I don’t think they’ve warmed up yet from the snowman building episode.”
His skilled hands relaxed her, and her mind drifted to thoughts of what his hands would feel like elsewhere on her body.
The brush of his hand to her cheek knocked her out of her reverie. Her gaze focused on his mouth. She wanted to press her lips to his, and yearned to know how they would feel against hers. His touch nearly scorched her cheeks. She closed her eyes and leaned closer to him. The warmth of his minty smelling breath washed over her face. He gently brushed his lips across hers sending her heart into overdrive. After pausing slightly, he did it again.
If her heart pounded any harder it would break her chest cavity. She parted her lips slightly, allowing his tongue to pass through. His hot hands slid slowly from her cheeks to her neck. She wrapped her arms around him to draw him closer. His body tensed under her burning fingertips. His breath caught, and he paused for a couple of beats before his soft lips found their way back to hers.
His minty flavor and clever lips seduced her. All control was lost. She knew she couldn’t stop kissing him even if she wanted to. His tongue floated across hers, smoother than anything she’d ever encountered before, smoother than the finest chocolates.
His kiss turned intimately possessive, as if he was telling her that her lips were made for him, and only for him. Unleashed desire throbbed in her most delicate places. A kiss just didn’t seem like enough.
