Title Rescue Me

Author Jana Richards

Genre Contemporary sweet romance


Book Blurb


Chelsea Andrews can’t decide who’s more dangerous—the creep on the Toronto city bus, or the handsome stranger who rescues her. Was he acting as he claimed, or is he that weird in real life? She doesn’t stick around to find out. Fate intervenes when her rescuer, out of work actor Matt Malone, sublets the apartment next door. Chelsea soon discovers the most dangerous thing about her charming new neighbor is the damage he’s inflicting on her heart.


Or is it? Soon after Matt moves in, strange romantic notes begin showing up at the art gallery where Chelsea works. Then she’s followed home from the bus stop late one night, and her apartment is broken into. Despite her growing feelings for Matt, all the evidence points to him as the culprit.


Matt is at a crossroads. His acting career is stalled, and all his siblings are getting married and having babies while his love life is non-existent. Something has to change. Things begin to look up for Matt when he moves next door to Chelsea. He’s totally captivated by the beautiful blonde and wants to take their relationship to the next level. But when he discovers what Chelsea suspects about him, his plans are put in jeopardy. And how can he protect her from the real stalker?


Is Matt the kind, funny, sincere man Chelsea is falling in love with, or some kind of letter-writing stalker? She must decide whether he is a dream come true or her worst nightmare.


Excerpt


She was about to decline when Sean put an arm around her shoulders. “You know, Chelsea, I can’t remember the last time Matt brought a girl to any family function, and now he’s brought you twice. You must be pretty special.”


Her cheeks heated. “We’re just friends, Sean. Matt only invited me because I was alone for the Easter holiday.”


“That’s our Matt. Mr. Sensitive,” Erin said with a grin.


Matt’s jaw clenched, and Chelsea recognized the glint of anger in his blue eyes, but it quickly disappeared and his ‘good fellow’ persona emerged.


“Yeah, that’s me. A sweetheart of a guy. Andrews here is a small-town girl in the big, bad city. It’s my civic duty as a Torontonian to show her some hospitality, and especially to keep her out of trouble. Right, Chels?” He gave her a playful slug on the shoulder.


Chelsea retaliated with a slug of her own, making no effort to pull her punch. Keep her out of trouble? Was that the reason he’d invited her to this family gathering? It annoyed her that Matt had appointed himself her keeper.


“Right, Malone. But I don’t want to give your family the impression that I’m some helpless hick from the sticks. I can look after myself, you know.”


Matt rubbed his shoulder where Chelsea had hit him. “Hey, I didn’t hit you that hard. And by the way, Andrews, you can’t even fight off a sixteen-year-old with pimples and a raging case of the hots for you.”


Her blood boiled, and she completely forgot their audience. “That is the stupidest, most asinine thing I’ve ever heard you say, Malone, and I’ve heard you say some pretty stupid things.”


“Stupid?” Matt stood toe to toe with her, their faces only inches apart. “I’ll tell you what’s stupid. A woman riding a bus alone at midnight, now that’s stupid. Do you have any idea what that guy could have done to you? Do you know how scared I was for you?”


All the fight went out of her. She stared into Matt’s eyes for what seemed like an eternity but couldn’t think of single thing to say. She didn’t even remember that their every word was being listened to until she heard Sean chuckle.


“Oh yeah, I’m sure they’re just friends. What do you think, Robert?”


“No more than nodding acquaintances, I’d say.”
