GENRE: Romance Suspense
Trying to rectify the mistake that unleashed his dark past, Sione runs to the rescue of a beautiful woman staying at his resort, saving her from a brutal attack … The sly beauty who doesn’t want a hero is no damsel in distress, considering the suspicious circumstances she seems involved in. He should stay away from the beautiful liar, but something about her makes him want to forget his doubts and do anything—even if it means relying on his violent instincts—for a chance to be with her.
Spencer froze, still bent at the waist, staring at the floor, trying to ignore the prickly heat rising up her neck and the sound of Sione’s voice, which gave her a warm shiver.
Standing, struggling to cover herself with the sarong, Spencer took a step back as Sione walked into the dressing room, filling it with his size and strength, crowding her, and a sudden attack of claustrophobia battled with a warm sensation starting deep below her navel and snaking southward toward the center of her thighs.
“Where is the sales lady?”
“I think she’s helping another customer,” he said.
“Another customer,” Spencer mumbled, still trying to cover herself with the swatch of pink fabric. “That figures.”
“You need a different size or something?”
“I don’t know how to tie this thing.” Spencer shook her head. “I’ve tried and tried.”
“Let me help you,” Sione said.
“No, no,” She said. “You don’t have to do that, just … I think you should leave.”
Smiling, Sione grabbed the sarong from her.
A strange sound erupted from her, something between a squeal and a shriek, as she stood there in her lace bra and matching panties.
“It’s actually very easy.” He moved behind her.
Flabbergasted by his blatant audacity, she shook her head.
Sione maneuvered Spencer’s arms and then wrapped the sarong around her. Shell-shocked, she stood stiff as a board as he worked with the sarong, twisting the ends, bringing them up and behind her neck, and tying them together.
“Okay, there you go.” He turned her toward the mirror.
“Hmm,” Spencer mumbled, turning to the side, admiring his handiwork, vaguely wondering how he did it and how he knew how to do it.
“You really know how to put one of these things on.”
“I know how to take one off, too.”
Five Things You Probably Don’t Know About Rachel Woods
- I have a “Green Thumb” and have successfully grown beautiful oleanders and hibiscus bushes!
- I am obsessed with roller coasters! The steeper the first precipitous drop, the better!
- I am one of the few people I know who still watch daytime soap operas. One of my greatest joys is yelling at the characters on Days of Our Lives!
- One of the characters in Flawless Danger—the Jamaican gangster, Ben Chang—is based on a real Jamaican gangster I met (and had a quasi-situationship with) while on vacation in Montego Bay!
- I like to call my writing “sexy/dangerous”, a version of the romantic suspense/woman in jeopardy genre, in which sexy girls find themselves in dangerous positions!
