She believes in success. He believes in a carefree lifestyle.
Driven and work-obsessed, Samantha Callahan’s specialty is conquering a man’s world. With her next promotion within grasp, the one thing she lacks may be the very thing that gives her the edge she needs. A well-deserved vacation with her best friends may be overdue, but nothing will stand in the way of her success. Not even the gorgeous, unambitious surfer boy next door.
Beach hottie Chase Bradshaw ditched corporate America to follow his dreams of the stress-free salt life. When Sam walks onto his beach, he can practically see the uptight personality oozing from her pores. The woman desperately needs something other than work to keep her up at night. He’s just the man to coax the vixen out of her.
Lucky for her, Chase just happens to surf as well as he sizzles in the bedroom.
Continuing her walk, the warm breeze blew between her legs, and furled her new dress up around her thighs. She loved the silky feeling on her skin.
The water’s surface was smooth tonight. She reached down, grabbed a shell, and rubbed the wet sand off between her fingers.
Memories of her trips to the shore with her parents filled her mind. Her father could skip a shell across the water with five bounces. Her attempts never made more than two.
Sam chucked it across the water, and it sank on the first hit. A laugh bubbled up from her stomach. She tried again with another shell, and it skipped only once.
“Try turning the other way.”
She jumped at the familiar voice.
Chase stood behind her in a loose ice-blue T-shirt, and the same pair of cargo shorts she’d come to associate with him. His hair ruffled in the wind, and he’d never looked more comfortable. More dashing. More enticing.
“You snuck up on me.”
“I called your name.” He smiled.
“Didn’t hear it.”
“Try it the other way. Like a frisbee.” He took a step closer.
Her cheeks warmed. She picked up another shell, and tried it. Straight into the water.
He chuckled again. “Takes practice.”
Her lips curled at the corners. “Hmm.”
“What’s your full name?”
The question surprised her, but she didn’t let it show. “Samantha Callahan.”
He nodded. “Samantha. I like it.”
Her name passing over his lips sank into her core like smooth, warm chocolate. Her mouth watered. Better than dessert.
He made no attempt to hide his perusal of her from head to toe. “Nice dress. Is it new?”
“Vacation agrees with you, Samantha,” he said with a grin. “I see you’re still having trouble letting your hair down.”
She lifted her hand and stroked down the back of her hair. “I only clipped it back to keep it off my face.”
He stepped closer, subtly shaking his head. “Uh-uh. All the way down. Let me try.”
Her eyes widened. After a beat, she raised her chin, and met his stare, an irresistible dare in her sparkling blue eyes. “Okay, you do it.”
He moved closer—close enough to smell her light floral fragrance. He reached behind her head, and found two pins, pulling them gently. Her hair tumbled down her back, and unfurled over her shoulders.
“There you are. Nice to meet you, Samantha.”
About Mia London
Mia loves to write!
She’s been reading fiction for years and finally decided that the images and scenes floating around in her head needed to make it to paper.
She’s a huge fan of romance, highly optimistic, and wildly faithful to the HEA (happily ever after). She’s inspired by most anything around her. And her biggest obstacle is not having enough time to get it all down on paper (or my computer, as the case may be).
Her goal is create a fantasy you will enjoy with characters you could love.
She lives in Texas with her attentive, loving, super-model husband, and her perfectly behaved, brilliant children. Her produce never wilts, there are no weeds in her flowerbeds, and chocolate is her favorite food group.
And then she wakes up.
