Alone and having just moved to a new small town, Arden Majors treats herself to a wonderfully romantic movie that leaves her primed to be kissed. Little did she know that the ruggedly handsome man racing down the dimly lit alley toward her would fulfill that need. By allowing this stranger to impulsively kiss her, Arden inadvertently rescues him from a dangerous position. The tables suddenly turned on Detective Jake Summers’ surveillance job and now two drug dealers want him and the video that would put them behind bars. With fate forcing them to work together, can these two passionate strangers stay focused on the situation, and not on each other, long enough to ensure their safety…and their future?
Still trying to slow his erratic breathing, the man alarmingly glanced down the dark empty alley. His eyes wild with terror then directly locked onto Arden’s stunned gaze. “Pretend you know me,” he anxiously blurted out.
The rest of her question lodged in her throat as the panicking man wrapped his arms tightly about her, capturing her open mouth with his own. Shock seized Arden’s joints, locking her in place. As she struggled to collect her wits about her, she found herself responding to this desperate stranger’s request. Her heart raced as the heat of his kiss sent warm tremors though her. This is crazy. I should be fighting him.
As if having a mind of their own, her unsteady hands snaked up his firm muscular chest to settle upon a pair of sturdy shoulders. “Mmm…” she heard him murmur at her acceptance of the situation.
His urgent desperate kiss gentled, yet remained intense. The tight embrace he held her with eased until she felt a large warm hand possessively caress the back of her head. A sigh emanated deep within her at his touch and her heart flip-flopped as he deepened the kiss.
Arden’s whirlwind thoughts soared through the logical clouds in her mind. What the heck was she doing? She didn’t even know this guy; yet the sweetness of his kiss conveyed to her that she shouldn’t be afraid of him. As his lips sensuously caressed hers as though they were lovers, she sank deeper into the ardent feelings coursing through her very being.
Abruptly, a brilliant shaft of light targeted her face. The fiery kiss ceased as she and the rugged stranger squinted into two bright flashlight beams.
