covered her queen-sized mattress. His attention lingered there for a
moment before he lifted his gaze to the shelves that held an assortment

How could a man come across so damned relaxed? Especially when she was wound so tight she felt ready to shatter any second.
“Do?” She actually squeaked her question.
“You know. Read? Watch movies? Shop?”

world, and he decides to have a conversation? “All of the above.”
smile sent her heart into a frantic staccato. He moved closer, and she
retreated until her butt touched the wall. Her breath came in short,
erratic spurts. His gaze started at her legs and raked upward over her
body. “I like all of the above, too.”
