Enjoy an Exclusive Excerpt

Around eleven o’clock, Holly’s mom realized she had forgotten her camera, so Holly volunteered to get it from her car. She pulled a winter jacket over her red party dress, hurried downstairs, and stepped outside.

She was almost to the sidewalk when a deep voice stopped her.


She spun quickly, her heart racing. The last time someone had done that do her, she’d nearly been attacked.

Declan was leaning against the wall, wearing nothing but jeans, boots, and a snug black sweater. No coat despite the cold night. He held a cigarette between his long fingers. She had made it clear on the night she’d hired him that there was no smoking inside the building. He had always obeyed that rule and gone outside, but she couldn’t help being concerned whenever she saw him smoke.

“What’s going on?” he continued. “Are you running away from your own party?”

“Just getting my mom’s camera from her car.”

He straightened and approached, taking a drag from the cigarette. “I’ll go with you.”

“She’s parked just down the street. I don’t need a chaperone.”

“Humor me, okay? What if Sasquatch is still hanging out around here? Your legs in that dress and heels are enough to drive a sane man crazy,” he said, and then his expression froze. “Shit. That’s not appropriate from maintenance guy to boss. I’m not coming on to you or anything like that.”

Now Holly’s pulse was really pounding. Trying to look nonchalant, she shrugged and said, “I’m not offended.”


“The car is this way.” She started walking, and he fell into step beside her.

Walking beside him like this, with her in delicate heels and a party dress, and him so uncommonly masculine, made her tingle all over. Again she wished they were more than employer and employee.

“You know you shouldn’t smoke,” she remarked. “It’s bad for your health.”

“Why do you care?”

“Why do you care if I walk out here alone at night?”

He raised his eyes to heaven. “Okay. You got me. You’re the one who said I’m not only an employee, I’m a friend.”

“Then that’s why I care.”

She paused at her mother’s car, unlocked it, and removed the camera from the glove compartment. On their way back to the building, she noticed that he still had the cigarette.

“I still don’t understand how a man who runs miles every morning before breakfast smokes cigarettes. But, if you don’t care about your health, there are other reasons you shouldn’t smoke,” she continued.

He narrowed his dark, slanted eyes at her. “Like?”

“Like how do you expect a woman to kiss you if you taste and smell like an ashtray?”

He laughed, shocking the hell out of her. In the entire two weeks he’d been working for her, she had never heard him laugh.

“It’s true,” she said.

“All right. You probably have a point.” He finally dropped the cigarette and crushed it under his boot.

“You’re littering now?”

“Oh, Holly, more than your legs can drive a man crazy.”
