Dominic Keane felt time in his bones. He wore a watch, but he didn’t need to. And because she knew this, his PA was never late. Today she was cutting it closer than was typical. In the nine months since he’d hired Lexie Weyland, she’d ticked every box on his perfect list. Unflappable, organized, phenomenal memory for details, right amount of charm when dealing with business associates, and she’d managed to not fall in love with him.


How could he know that perfect was overrated until he got it?


Or that he didn’t actually prefer blonds?


That she was the PA he’d want to get personal with?


He’d demanded an impersonal personal assistant and that’s what she gave him. Morning. Noon. He sighed. And night. Around the office, they called her Ice Princess.


It was a problem, sexual harassment law being what it was. If he really believed her—but it was too perfect. No woman with hair that red could be that cold. And his gut told him there was something there. He didn’t fool himself that he was irresistible. Guys and girls clicked or they didn’t. He heard the click. Knew she had, too. He’d seen the pulse throb at her neck. The flare of her nostrils. Her pupils betrayed her, too. He should never have warned her about getting personal. She was one stubborn woman.


He’d inch close. She’d step away. He’d bet on himself, but he had a feeling in his gut that time was running out. Not sure what, but he always trusted his gut. It was never wrong.


Nic had picked his seat so he could watch the door, so he could watch her arrive. He liked watching her. And he’d learned to pay attention to her. He’d let her fool him in that first interview, had missed the grace, the glorious red of her hair, and eyes that were too purple to be real. Only they were. She didn’t wear contacts. He’d gotten close enough to find that out. Once. How had she tricked him? It’s not like she wore a wig to the interview. He’d thought her mousy. Mousy? Give him enough time and he’d figure it out. So she could never do it to him again.


A huddle of people parted near the entrance and there she was. She paused, her gaze sweeping the room, looking for him. Black, she always wore black. Didn’t she realize it set her hair on fire? Made her eyes deeper and more vibrant? He waited for her to find him. The pause was so slight, if he hadn’t been watching for it, he’d have missed it. If she’d been close, he’d have seen her pulse ramp up.


Yeah, she wasn’t indifferent. He just had to find a way to break through the ice—
