      “I don’t know whether I should kiss you or yell at you.”

     His soft words flowed through her, kicking her pulse higher. Was he offering her the choice? Because she knew which she preferred.

     “If it’s all the same to you, I’d prefer a kiss.”

     He rumbled a laugh and moved closer. “If you change your mind, just say so and I’ll stop.”

     “I don’t want you to stop.” That was the truth, she realized, mesmerized by his powerful gaze.

     The kiss started out soft, slow, as they learned the feel and taste of each other. His lips were firm, inviting, so much so that Zandra tilted her head, angling for more of his taste, more of his touch.

     She placed both hands on his T-shirt, the soft fabric covering what she’d suspected, and now knew, was a solid chest, likely chiseled and smoothed from hours of Army-required PT.

     His hands were busy, too. One hand traced her hip, the other caressed her face so gently, slowly, methodically as his lips played on hers, teasing them apart and requesting an entry she was only all too happy to give.

     His tongue swept in and explored, tasted, dueled for control, and she fought the heady feeling she was diving into an emotional lake and would lose herself in its depths, that she wanted to lose herself in it. Time, distance, location… none of it had any meaning in this moment. No, this moment belonged to them. Only them.

About the Book:

Zandra York just got her big break, photographing a major project for a travel magazine. So what if she’s never traveled out of the country before? Or that she’s more adept at deciphering fraudulent financial statements than reading German train schedules? Her brother Jackson is on his way to act as her guide, and she can’t wait to experience Europe with him.

But when Jackson’s overprotective best friend gets off the plane instead, Zandra knows this will not end well. 

There isn’t a damned thing Special Forces instructor Blake Monroe wouldn’t do for his best friend, but babysit Zandra when Jackson is unexpectedly called away on a mission? Nope. Not on the list. Especially not when she proves to be more trouble than he can handle—and far too tempting.

Between accidentally hiring a hearse as their rideshare, an unprovoked goat attack, and photographing erotic-shaped chocolates, Blake and Zandra can’t keep their hands off each other. But Zandra’s new career is about to send her all over the world and Blake is finally ready to settle down after his next deployment.

He’ll never ask her to give up her dreams. And she’ll never ask him to give up his.

Hilarity ensues when a world-weary Special Forces soldier must keep his best friend’s little sister, an independent travel photographer with zero experience and too much determination to go where she has no business going, out of trouble.
