I think you will like this special story, it has meaning for me. I used to live in Salt Lake City at one time and totally loved to snowmobile. Of course, I never met a rich handsome man determined to make me behave, but I had a great time on those machines. My tall dark and handsome fella came later and we are still married today after thirty-seven years. 🙂
Can the sexy business shark have revenge…and love?
When Danni Oaks almost runs over the new owner of The Stardust Ski Lodge with her snowmobile, her heart does a double-take. Beneath her temperamental, spoiled attitude lurks a damaged girl with a painful secret. She adamantly refuses to be a deal sweetener for her manipulative father, John Oaks, even if the deal includes the handsome Sanders Linson.
Destroying John Oaks and his company is what drives Sanders Linson until he meets the man’s daughter. Used to smelling blood in the water, he immediately recognizes the pain in the depths of those troubled blue eyes. Sanders is determined to have his revenge on Danni’s father for his destructive business practices that cost him his own parents, but will it cost him the heart of the girl he’s fallen in love with?
Enjoy this excerpt!
“If you don’t settle down, young lady, I’m going to turn you over and give you a different reason to be upset.”
That got her attention. “You wouldn’t!” She glared at him indignantly.
“Don’t try me,” he warned, his blue eyes glittering with determination. He was happy to see the sassiness coming back though.
Huffing, Danni stopped fighting and allowed him to hold her against his chest as he tucked her head under his chin. Gently, he stroked her long slender arms with his right hand. He held her close with his left arm until he could feel her body relax and stop shaking. Finally, she sighed a soft tremulous breath.
“Talk to me, Danni,” he ordered softly. “Tell me what just happened.” He placed a gentle kiss on the top of her head, loving the clean scent of her hair.
Danni gave a deep sigh and shook her head. “It was nothing, Sanders, honestly. I’m sorry, I just overreacted that’s all.”
“That was not a mere overreaction, honey,” Sanders stated evenly. “You were in downright panic mode,”
“I was not in panic mode,” she denied. “It’s just been a long day and you are right, I’ve never been spanked until today. I’m sore and tired and I just..…. overreacted.” She threw her hands above her head for emphasis. “That’s all there is to it.”
“You’re lying to me, honey,” came the warning voice in her ear.
Reacting in typical flight or fight fashion, Danni rounded on him. “Do you think I go around kissing every Tom, Dick, or Harry that wants in my door? Is that what you think? That I’m a loose woman? Well let me tell you a thing or two, mister, I’m not a loose woman! So just quit trying to make more out of this than there is.”
When he looked slightly amused at her tactics, it made her furious. “Maybe I just didn’t want to kiss you. Ever think of that?” she challenged, her eyes spitting sparks. She jumped off his lap before he could stop her this time and strode to the door. Yanking it open, she turned to him, “Good night, Mr. Linson.”
Getting up slowly with all the grace of a big cat, Sanders walked over to the angry girl. “All right, Danni, we’ll play it your way for now. But I will have my explanation…. and soon, little bunny.”
He walked out the door and Danni shut it behind him, breathing a big sigh of relief as she slumped against it. What in the world was she supposed to do now? Sanders was very quickly breaking down her defenses. When he finally peeled away the layers, the ugly truth would emerge. She couldn’t let him get that far. A part of her really wanted to let him get that far, but trust was a huge issue for her. At the end of the day, she wasn’t ready for that yet.
She wanted to be, oh yes, she certainly did.
Was Sanders a man she could actually trust? Or when the veneer of civilization was stripped away, and raw, naked emotion was left, would he run just like the others? They’d given up before the first layer had even been stripped, her defiance and antagonism.
Her mind troubled, Danni headed for bed.
