Marissa Grayson’s dream went up in smoke. A devastating fire has ripped apart her family’s bed and breakfast, leaving her off-kilter and scrambling to repair the damage. What she doesn’t need, or have time for, is Rhenn Burleski. Sexy, confident, and dangerous to her heart. A man who clearly knows his way around the female body and will leave the moment the sheets start to cool. Yet that doesn’t stop her from making a deal with the devil himself.
Work hard, play harder. That’s Rhenn’s life motto. An electrician by day, Rhenn turns it up at night, always with a different lady friend in tow. He makes sure they know the score: he’s not looking for anything more than one night of fun. However, he knows the second he meets the shy daughter of the bed and breakfast’s owner that his life is never going to be the same. As hard as he tries, he just can’t resist one taste.
What happens when their time is up and Rhenn must leave, returning to his old life? Will they be able to walk away, hearts unscathed, or will their time together prove to be nothing more than a fading memory?
“So, tell me about growing up in Rockland Falls. Have you lived here your entire life?” I ask, concentrating on trying to clear away the grime off the ornate wood.
I hear her finally move, walking over to the cooler to grab a drink, as suggested. I glance over my shoulder just as she props her back against the doorframe and slowly lowers herself to the floor. She looks exhausted and we’re only at the end of week one. There’s tons of work to be done, including the cleaning of the remaining three guest rooms, plus all of the living spaces below. It’s a daunting task, even to me.
“Yeah, I was born and raised here. I’ve lived here at this place since I was little. Went to junior college and took some business and hospitality classes, but my real passion has always been cooking.”
I stop scrubbing and follow the sound of her voice. She’s looking off to the left out the window, and I’m immediately drawn to her, needing to hear more words fall from that mouth of hers. “What do you like to cook?” I ask, returning my attention to the task at hand, yet keeping one eye firmly on the beautiful woman across the room.
“Everything,” she says with a smile. “I make an amazing red velvet soufflé with mascarpone cream and wild mushroom asiago chicken, but my favorite is my zesty lemon blueberry pancakes with fresh maple syrup.”
My stomach growls.
The sponge falls to the floor.
Hearing this woman talk about food, the way her words ooze passion and happiness, has my insides twisted into knots and my dick throbbing in my pants. Well, more than it already was.
“Hearing you talk about food is almost orgasmic,” I tell her, offering a smirk and a wink.
Her eyes meet mine, the irises dark and alluring, as a bubble of laughter spills from her lips. Those fucking lips. I almost have to bite my fist to keep from groaning. “They always say food is the second fastest way to a man’s heart,” she says with a shrug.
“The second? What’s the first?” I ask, taking a step toward her.
