Chapter 1 (excerpt) ...
Seattle’s weather forecast for August 1 promised temperatures skyrocketing into the 90s, but the heat was no match for Kat Summers’s fiery-hot temper. She pulled the brush through her auburn hair and glared at Chance Eliason, her lover for the past nine months, nearly searing him in two.
Wearing white slacks and a short-sleeved silk blouse, she could have been dressed for church on this Sunday morning, but instead she was preparing to show a house to a new real estate client. She flipped the brush in Chance’s direction, which he caught, and stomped out of the bedroom of her 100-year-old Craftsman style home.
By the time she reached the back door, he had her by the arm, stopping her in her tracks, his eyes as set as hers. “I know you don’t have to leave for another hour, so you can just come back here and talk this out.”
Her five-foot ten-inch height was a good four inches below his, but she rose on tiptoes, trying to equal out the difference, and looked at him straight on. “There’s nothing to talk about. You like your women barefoot and pregnant, and that about says it all.”
She yanked her arm to free herself but lost her balance, giving him the opportunity he needed to steer her into the living room, away from the door leading to her car. “We’re going to have this out once and for all if it takes all day.”
