Excerpt

 

And now, here she was. In Paris, the City of Light.  La Ville Lumière

 

With a deep intake of breath, she clutched the teal leather purse where her passport was tucked safely inside its zippered pouch. And plunged headfirst into the adventurous, welcoming night.

 

As she wandered among the tourists, watching profiles emerge on canvas, deciding who she would choose to sketch her portrait as a souvenir for this most memorable summer, one artist caught her eye.

 

 And took her breath away.

 

Thick, glossy, black hair cascaded down his back. Sinuous tattoos snaked up either side of his muscular neck, slithering from beneath the snug black tee-shirt molded to the sculpted biceps of his long, athletic arms.  A mustache and several days’ worth of dark stubble joined the trim beard which outlined his chiseled jawline and clefted chin.

 

 A ripple of desire shivered up Ella’s spine.

 

He must have sensed her watching him, for he looked up from his work to gaze across la Place du Tertre.

 

Their eyes met, and Ella was transfixed.

 

An irresistible aura of mystery and passion exuded from his every pore. He flashed her a glorious, dazzling grin.

 

 Her knees nearly buckled from the blinding impact.

 

Stunned—for she was unused to male attention, let alone captivating charm—it took a moment before she smiled back. I want him to sketch me. And melt me with that scorching smile.
