Falling Into Trouble

December 17, 2009

Since last week I introduced the hero from Say You’re Mine, I figured this week I should post a little something about the heroine, Violet. More specifically, Reece’s reaction to her stumbling into his undercover assignment.

Reece stared at the woman sprawled across the busted fence boards at his feet. Who in the hell had he pissed off to deserve having to deal with the Calder family?

Violet gazed up at him like a deer caught in headlights.

Just fucking perfect.

Beside him, Strickland’s younger brother, known for his trigger-happy ways, reached for his gun.

Moving quick, and with what he hoped passed for concern, Reece crouched down. “Honey, I thought I told you to wait in the car.”

Violet blinked, those glossy lips of hers parted in confusion. Helping her to her feet, Reece kept his body strategically positioned between her and Strickland’s younger brother.

“You know her?” David Strickland kept his hand behind him. Suspicion tightened his face.

“She’s my girlfriend,” Reece decided and hauled her to his side even as she squirmed to put distance between them. Before the objection he read in her eyes made it to her mouth, he leaned in and nuzzled her neck.

Her surprised exhale whispered along his cheek.

“Play along,” he whispered. God, she smelled good. Like the scent of his grandparents’ peach orchard right before the sunset.

One tawny eyebrow arched as he pulled back. The wheels were all but spinning in her head, and she looked ready to out him any second.

He swallowed a sigh. She was a Calder. Of course she would have to make this difficult for him. Before she could say something and get them both shot, he tipped her head back, and slid his mouth over hers.

It took a second for her surprise to fade, then her eyes drifted shut and her lips parted. His intention of keeping the kiss for show only disintegrated the moment her warm tongue stroked his bottom lip. He’d been half expecting her to drive a knee between his legs for kissing her.

He sure as hell hadn’t actually believed she would respond to him. She could be just a really good actress, but his body didn’t care. It enjoyed the slow hum thickening his blood just the same.

Reece tightened his hold on her, tugging her more firmly to him. Heat rushed through his veins and straight to his groin. Hell, if he’d known she tasted this good, he would have told her brothers where to go and kissed her a long time ago.

Her fingers fisted in his shirt before she wrapped one arm around his neck, caging him to her.
