What will Eila choose? Love of her life or a life ruled by tradition? Fall in love with love, in this steamy saga from a best selling romance author.
“Hey!” Eila flared. She heard Brett inhale sharply. He shot from his chair and was beside her in seconds. “What happed to you?”
Eila stiffly draped the scarf around her head again. “I got mugged last night.”
Eila failed to see Brett’s hands curl into fists. He was angry, very angry at the person who had done this to her.
“Are you okay?”
Eila merely nodded.
Running a quick hand through his hair he sat down on the chair next to her. “You are a trouble magnet,” he growled.
“So the mugging is my fault?” Eila’s expression bordered on incredulous.
“I didn’t say that.”
“No, you just implied it.” Eila shot to her feet. “I just wanted to thank you for saying a few things in my favor yesterday. And I’m sure if you hadn’t, I still could’ve managed just fine.”
“I’m glad you aren’t hurt.” Brett let Eila see in his eyes what he was really feeling. His blue eyes met her dark ones steadily. An intense emotion flashed in his eyes. “Obviously your mouth is working, so I’m guessing you are okay,”
“You are unbelievable!” Eila retorted, putting her glasses back on.
The sneer staged a comeback. “I know.”
“It wasn’t a compliment,” she snorted.
“I know that too.” Brett nodded mockingly. “I have a job for you. I need an assistant.”
“Bartenders need assistants?”
“No, restaurant owners do.” Brett sat back in his chair and looked up at her. His face was serious.
Eila asked perplexed. “Who’s the owner?”
Brett watched Eila. She wore fashionable but conservative and pale colored clothes, her hair was always neatly clipped in a long, glossy ponytail but Eila could not contain her impulsive, unrestrained and unaffected personality. She reminded him of windy meadows, gusting rains and trees burdened with blossoms. Brett crossed his arms across his chest and the shirt tightened, which flattered his buff torso.
“You’re looking at him,” he said.
