“We’ll be late if we don’t get a move on.”
His deep, gravelly voice sent shivers down her spine, and she forced herself to keep on breathing.

It promised all sorts of wicked delights to come, and made Sophia wish this was more than just a business arrangement.
“Sophia? I’m coming in.”

Her breath hitched anew when she saw him in a Tux. No man had any right to look that well put together. It made her feel even more like the poor relation. The stand in, she was. She had to remember that, and not let her feelings run away with her.
The slow appraisal he gave her body sent her heart rate into overdrive, and when he stepped up behind her and turned her around, his hot breath seared her skin.
“Stunning. Let me help.”
