Valentine Magic is now on the bestseller list at Red Rose Publishing!
He ran his fingers through his dark hair, releasing a deep sigh. He didn’t know. He wasn’t sure of anything anymore. The only thing he was sure of was that he did not want to let Gwen go. Divine intervention, destiny, or coincidence, she had brought something back into his life that he’d been missing for a very long time. She’d brought light and warmth into his cold darkness.
Gwen came walking out of the bathroom, pausing in the doorway when she saw David sitting on the couch, staring at the fire with two glasses of red wine in front of him. As she stared at him, she felt the familiar sensation of desire rekindling in her stomach. She had fallen for him. There was no use trying to deny it. He was very handsome, creative, and successful but what had captured her the most was his eyes. There seemed to be a different person beneath his cool, calm exterior. Perhaps that person was looking for magic, just like her.
“I thought maybe some wine . . .” David looked up at her and the words died in his throat. How could a woman look so damn sexy wearing his old pajamas? He felt his mouth go dry. Full breasts, a slender waist, and curvy hips. His loose pajamas clung to her in all the right places. All he could think was how much he wanted to run his hands under those clothes and across what he knew would be soft, warm flesh.
And there is a sequel coming to this story soon!
“Grazie.” He folded the menu and handed it to the waiter. He looked at Maria and smiled at the look on her face. “What are you thinking?”
“Nothing.” She picked up her wine glass smiling in return. “What do you do?” She sipped the delicious wine glancing around the square. A small dark haired little girl chased pigeons, her mother behind her laughing as she chatted in Italian with the man next to her. There were street magicians in red berets and random bursts of applause filled the air. She looked back to Gabriel and wondered why she hadn’t had more moments like this one back in the states.
“I run the Vineyard.” He sat back in the white, cast iron chair. “My father retired from the grapes about five years ago. I took his place.”
“What about David?” She brushed her hair from her face, flirting unconsciously.
“David?” Gabriel shook his head. “David has never had a passion for the grapes. You see with the grapes you have to be flexible, relaxed. You have to take things as they come and be prepared for anything. David is all about order and schedules. He has to know what is going to happen and when so he can logically think through and take the proper action.” His eyes locked with hers. In that moment Maria found it incredibly hard to breath. “In the wine business you have to go by your intuition. It‘s like dealing with a woman.” He reached out and took her hand in his own.
“Is that so?” She asked, never taking her eyes from his.
“Yes.” He didn’t take his eyes from hers and he noticed the flame of passion and desire coming to life in those beautiful emerald green eyes. He turned her hand over tracing his index finger over the center of her palm. Maria felt a lurch of excitement in the pit of her stomach. “Sometimes you have to go by instinct.”
She brought the crystal glass to her lips and sipped the wine slowly. “Is that right?” God, she couldn’t take her eyes off those sensuously full lips. She found herself wondering how those strong lips would feel on her bare skin, what his mouth would feel like if he were to suck her nipple into its warmth. She shifted uncomfortably in her seat as she felt her thighs growing hot from her wicked thoughts.
“Of course.” He turned her hand back over and brought it up to his mouth. “A woman must be coaxed and romanced. A man must let her know she is the most beautiful woman he has ever seen.” Maria almost groaned out loud when she felt his teeth skim across her knuckles.
She cleared her throat smiling shyly. “Gabriel, are you trying to seduce me?”
“Do you want me to seduce you?” His voice was very soft and extremely seductive.
