Excerpt from Dangerous Deception by Katie Reus
It was him. How that was even possible, she didn't know. "That's your brother?" The question sounded hoarse and scratchy to her own ears and she doubted Jason missed it.
"Yeah. You know him or something?" She felt her boss's gaze on her but she couldn't tear her eyes away from Trent.
Broad-shouldered, midnight black hair, perfect bronze coloring and standing about six foot one. He yanked his sunglasses off and stalked toward them. Yep, he still looked good enough to eat. Staring at him now, she couldn't believe she'd ever willingly walked away from him. The man was walking sex appeal.
Heat involuntarily pooled between her legs as his dark eyes roved over her body in a blatantly appreciative manner. She might be fully clothed but the way he stared at her brought back too many memories. Naked memories.
Her body alternated between hot and cold. His heated gaze made her feel like he was remembering the same things she was. Her nipples strained painfully against her bra but she was thankful she had one on. At least he wouldn't see the effect he had on her body.
Every instinct she possessed told her to run and hide but her feet were leaden. The man who visited her dreams on a regular basis was walking right toward them. Well, stalking like an angry bear was more like it.
Despite her resolve to stand her ground, she took a small step back as he joined them.
"Sage?" Trent spoke, the deep timber of his voice just as sexy as she remembered.
Somehow she found her voice. Clearing her throat, she said, "Yes. I'm Sage Miller. Nice to meet you." When she held out her hand, he stared at it for a confused moment before enveloping it with his much bigger one. She didn't know why she'd pretended not to know him. The words had just popped out. The thought of explaining to her boss exactly how she knew his brother was beyond embarrassing.
After a few seconds, she tried to pull away but he held firm, tugging her a step closer. As if drawn by a magnet, she stared at their clasped hands. His darker skin against her ivory coloring painted an erotic picture. It shouldn't but when she stared at their hands, all she could think about was what their bodies had looked like intertwined. Despite her resolve to stay strong, she could feel heat creeping up her neck. And with her fair skin tone, it had to be obvious.
"Wait a minute. Do you two know each other?" Jason's confused voice interrupted them.
She jerked her hand away. "No."
"Yes," Trent said at the same time.
Jason let out a nervous laugh and out of the corner of her eye, she saw him take a few steps back. "Okay then. I'm going to catch up with Sharpe. Find me when you need me."
Without looking at Jason, she couldn't be sure who he was talking to but at that moment, she didn't care. She and Trent stared at each other for what felt like an eternity. She broke away first and found an interesting spot on the ground to stare at. Yeah, she was a total chicken.
"What the hell are you doing working for my brother?"
