Excerpt

A light came on in an upstairs windowindicating someone was there. Elyse walked up the front steps andtried the handle, but it was locked. Just as she reached for thebell, the door flew open and a large, muscular figure appeared. Theold screen door and the absence of lighting in the foyer concealedhis face.
“Hi,” Elyse said. “I was drivingby and wondered if you had any vacancies.”
“Here?”
“This is an inn, isn’t it?”
“It hasn’t been for over fouryears.” He turned on the porch light. “I thought everyone in thistown knew that.”
His disheveled appearance made herthink he wasn’t planning on entertaining visitors. His dark, thickhair looked as if he’d run his fingers through it causing it tostand on end. He hadn’t bothered to button his faded blue jeans orput on a shirt before coming downstairs. Elyse couldn’t help butnotice how his well-defined abs disappeared into his waistband.
“I’m sorry.” She moved away fromthe entrance. “I’m intruding.”
“No.” He stepped out onto the porchin his bare feet. “I just didn’t expect anyone out here at thistime of the night.”
“I drove from the city. I thought Imight stay the night. I used to come here as a kid.” She lookedpast his shoulder into the foyer. She saw a fresh stack of wood inthe corner and several cans of paint. “Are you renovating?”
“Trying to.” He nodded. “It’s awork in progress.”
She caught a wave of alcohol on hisbreath.
“Are you just passing through?”
“I’m not sure. I just needed to getaway and I remembered how perfect this place always was.”
“Yeah,” he looked over hisshoulder. “Not so much anymore.”
“What happened?”
“My uncle owned the place, but hecouldn’t keep up with the maintenance. He and my aunt retired andleft it to me. It’s just been sitting vacant since then. It neededa ton of work. I didn’t realize how much until I actually startedripping things out.”
“How long have you been renovating?”
“A little over six months.”
“Well, thanks for your time. MaybeI’ll visit when you’re finished,” She smiled encouragement, butdisappointment filled Elyse’s heart at the thought of not stayingthere. “Good luck with the renovations.”
When she turned to leave, he stoppedher with a hand on her shoulder. “Wait.”
When she turned, his ice blue eyes heldher gaze. The intensity there made her stomach flutter. It shouldhave been a warning sign to run fast and far, but her body respondedin other ways. The sensation he created from just one touch coursedthrough her system, landing straight between her legs.
Oh my…
“For the past few months I’ve beenrenovating the third floor. If I’m going to live here and run thisplace, I wanted my rooms to be done first before I started on therest of the inn. There are two bedrooms up there; both have privatebathrooms. You could stay if you want.”
“That’s very nice of you, but—”
“Your room has a lock.”
As if that would keep you out. Youhave the keys.
“I’m not ready to have guests yet,so I wouldn’t charge you.”
“I couldn’t, but thank you.”
“You drove all this way to PleasureInn. There isn’t another place for miles. Spend the night and thenyou can leave in the morning.”
She wasn’t familiar with thesurrounding area and the drive had made her tired. What if shecouldn’t find another place to spend the night?
“I don’t blame you for beingcautious.” He shrugged. “You do what your gut tells you: butyou’re more than welcome to stay here.”
She stared into his deep eyes for a fewmoments. She’d left the city to get away and forget about thedisaster of a relationship with Phillip. She’d done nothing butwork for years. She hadn’t been to a restaurant or on a vacation inmonths. She was too busy cooking for others. Would one night in abeautiful Victorian inn be so bad? How could it be, especially whenthe inn keeper looked like a goddamned Calvin Klein model?
“I’ll stay on one condition.”
“Sure.”
“You have to tell me your name.”
“Oh.” He ran his fingers throughhis hair and smiled for the first time since greeting her. “Forgivemy manners. I’m Logan Cole.” He extended his hand to her.
“Nice to meet you, Logan,” She saidproperly as she shook his hand. “I’m Elyse Clapton.”
“Welcome to Pleasure Inn, Ms.Clapton.” He dipped his head as he held the door open for her.“Where all of your fantasies become reality.”
