Partners in more than stopping crime…
Brett Hunter had enough of his cousin’s detective agency and went into the police academy. Now he’s been partnered with Sam Taylor, a sexy blonde with cop’s eyes and enough sass to keep the headstrong Hunter in line.
But when they butt heads with a serial killer, will Brett be strong enough to keep Sam safe? Will their growing love be enough to see them through the problems of love in the workplace? Will they find the killer and foil his foul schemes?
Samantha's eyes roamed at will over his mussed hair and the sexy stubble that covered his chin and cheeks. He wore only a pair of jeans, left unbuttoned, the top gaping open. His chest was bare; her fingers itched to touch his skin, to see if he was as warm and strong as he looked. She only looked up when he cleared his throat. Her eyes met his, confused blue to warm hazel.
"Kiss me," she breathed.
"What?" Those eyes grew wide with shock.
"Just do it," she growled, reaching up and letting her hand grasp the back of his neck, warm from sleep. She pulled him down, seeing his eyes flame, feeling his hands reach around her, sliding from her waist up her back.
Fire. It was all she could think when his lips captured hers. There was no softness; no butterfly touches or teasing caresses. He was all heat, his chest; his lips twisting hers open so that his tongue could explore her mouth. She moaned, her fingers slipping into his hair, trying to get closer.
Then she forced herself away, tearing out of his arms, her heart racing, her lungs desperately seeking air that seemed suddenly too thin. "Dammit!" she growled, pacing back and forth for a moment. "He's right." She looked up at Brett and felt a spurt of panic that grew to overwhelming fear. "Forget I was here," she said quickly, turning to flee down the cement walkway.
But Brett was quicker, reaching out one arm and wrapping it round her slender waist to drag her roughly back toward him. "No way," he growled. "You expect me to forget you showing up at my house at two a.m., waking me from a sound sleep and then demanding that I kiss you? Are you completely crazy, Sam? You're going to have to tell me what this is all about."
