I am thrilled to be celebrating the release of a brand new, swoon-worthy romance from Entangled Select Contemporary today! Read on for a sneak peek excerpt, and fall in love with Arianna Hart's STORMING THE CASTLE!
With her daughter’s paternal grandparents making a sudden appearance and the difficulties of running her own lodge and being a single mom, Faith Adams doesn’t have the time to worry about the mysterious stranger staying in one of her cottages, no matter how sexy he is.
Her newest guest may be surly, but his money is good, so she’s willing to overlook his surly nature. If only she could ignore the way he awakens a searing hunger in her…
Excerpt from STORMING THE CASTLE:
“I’ll be down in a second,” he answered from the loft.
She could smell soap and steam and figured he must have just taken a shower. Don’t think about him walking around up there naked.
“I can leave the laundry basket and come back if you’d like.”
“Is something wrong?”
“Not wrong, just irritating. I waited too long to do laundry and now I only have one pair of clean jeans left.”
“I can take care of that in no time.”
“I mean, that’s all I have left. One pair of jeans. All my shirts and stuff are nasty.”
“Oh.” Faith’s face got hot as she realized what he wasn’t saying. His bare feet appeared on the steps and she tried not to look at the front of his jeans and imagine him going commando underneath.
Thank God, the pile of laundry he carried blocked his view of her, because she was sure she was staring. A thin line of dark hair trailed from his belly button down to the waistband of his low slung jeans and a few drops of water sparkled in the light.
For the last two weeks, every time she’d seen Sam, he’d been in running shorts and a T-shirt. Seeing him shirtless sent her blood pressure through the roof. Her mouth watered and she imagined capturing those droplets with her tongue as she followed the path to what waited behind the fly.
“I think this is all of it,” he said, dropping the pile of laundry on the couch.
“Did you remember your towels? I brought you some new ones.” Her voice was thick and raspy, and she tried to discreetly clear her throat while looking anywhere but at his naked chest.
“Yeah, they’re in the pile.”
“Good. Great. I’ll just strip the…ah, the bed and put on the new sheets.” She scooped the clean linen out of the laundry basket and bolted for the stairs. “Just put your laundry in the basket, and I’ll bring it with me when I go back to the house.”
If her face got any hotter, she’d burst into flame.
