...been smitten at first sight? Or been mystified by the physical pull you felt right away for someone?
In my lighthearted romantic suspense -- STAY CLOSE, NOVAC! Jessi is disturbed by a tug toward Ian. ♥
Jessi exchanged her shorts and T-shirt for the light pink camisole and matching stretchy Capri's she used as pajamas. She fell onto the bed and hugged the pillow. "Ahhh" whooshed out of her. Finally, peace and quiet. No hammers, power tools, or stalkers. She inhaled a deep breath and then slowly exhaled the tension of the last twenty-four hours. The second she closed her eyes, an image of Ian flashed through her thoughts. "Oh no you don't." She clamped her eyes really tight thinking it would send him away. But he didn't leave. In fact, he strutted across her brain like he owned it. She could see everything from the plain white T-shirt that stretched across phenomenal pecs to his boyishly handsome face. His sparkly green eyes were the next thing to keep her from drifting to sleep. Actually, it was a toss-up between his eyes and those darn lips.
Ugh. What the heck was she doing? She was supposed to be hiding out and getting some rest and relaxation. So far, no hiding out. No R & R. Only drooling over the clumsy nephew of the guy who owned the adjacent cottage. She was struck by a daunting thought. What if Ian wasn't who he said he was? Maybe he was the heavy breather and the author of those explicit notes. What if falling off that ladder was deliberate; to reel her in and win her trust? And then when she let her guard down... Jessi's hand went to her throat. She bolted to a sitting position.
P. S. The cute little dog on the cover is named Gordon!
