Excerpt from In Bed With The Boss
With her mind on her presentation, Trish was caught by surprise when the sound of the elevator light switching off alerted her to the lift doors opening, and she felt wide-eyed and distracted as she turned to face the lift and take a step forward. All at once her breath caught in her throat and for a few seconds that felt like an eternity she could not have moved for the world. A shiver of awareness rippled throughout her body like a zing of electricity and an intense heat flooded her face, quickly seeping down her chest to settle in her stomach, starting another chorus of nervous, hungry butterflies. Only this time, it wasn’t nerves that had her body trembling and her breath stuck in her throat. Her eyes had been caught by the most incredible dark blue gaze, freezing her thoughts and stopping all movement. Despite the fact he was standing at the back of the lift, behind several other passengers, the man’s eyes drew Trish’s undivided attention, like a magnetic pull she could no more resist than the increasing pull of her lungs for her next breath. She forced herself to suck in air like a fish out of water but could not have broken eye contact in that moment if her life had depended on it. She did manage to notice with a vague sense of peripheral vision that he was leaning casually against the mirrored wall of the lift, however, as his eyes locked with hers she noted a hint of surprised humour reflected in his glance and one side of his delectable mouth half lifted in a roguish smile that actually caused a small gasp to escape her open lips before she could stop it.
Feeling dizzy and disoriented, Trish shocked herself even further with the sudden, unbidden thought that she would give a great deal to kiss that smile right off those luscious lips.
