Excerpt of the sexy paranormal series, Uncharted Territory, book one...
"You baffle me."
"Even after all this time?" She tilted her head to the side, adrenaline still pumping hard through her veins and heartbeat fluttering in her throat.
"You get more confusing every day that I know you." He winked before turning his attention to a coconut. Grabbing a knife, he began carving through the husk.
She licked her lips with anticipation. Every muscle in her body ached after that swim. Now that they'd made it to shore, she'd allowed herself to feel the anxiety rattling her nerves. She needed a massage and alcohol in the worst way.
"You're pretty sliced up. You should be more careful." Her gaze skimmed over his chest, appreciating the defined lean muscles.
His gaze flicked to hers before darting back to his task. "We heard from Don and Jack, they'll be looking for us. I predict that we'll be out of here before nightfall."
"I'm not worried." She rolled her shoulders back and willed herself to relax.
"Yes, you are. Don't you know by now that you can't lie to me?" He grinned without looking up from where his fingers pried open the coconut. "I'm starving after that adventure of ours. I can't stop thinking about that damn shark. Where did he go? He just vanished. If you hadn't seen him, too, I'd start thinking I'd imagined him."
"Oh, for God's sake, can you stop talking about the shark? I'm more interested in what brought us here, aren't you?" She jumped to her feet and started pacing, unable to fight the adrenaline that pulsated through her veins. "One minute we're cruising along and then—wham—the boat stops. Crew vanishes. We dive only feet away from the yacht and then—wham—we're swirling, almost like we were caught in an underwater tornado—then—wham—we're over Bimini Road. We're stalked by some nutty shark and then you kiss me...why? You thought we were going to die, right? Damn it, I know we do some crazy shit and we've been there, done that with most things, but what the hell, Josh? What brought us here? How can you be sure we'll get back or that anyone heard us? Why is there nothing else alive here? Have you seen one fucking bird? Don't you think that's creepy?"
Overcome with all the emotions swirling through her, she bent over and pressed her hands against her knees. Never one to panic before, she closed her eyes. One deep breath in...another slow one out. Repeat.
Josh dropped his hand against the small of her back. "Hey, Ms. Always-in-Control, we're together and we're alive. That counts for something. Let it out. We'll figure it out because we always do."
"Yeah, right, whatever you say." She stood and shook her hands at her side, unable to stop the racing emotions.
"Hey." He grabbed her by the shoulders and turned her around. "Look at me."
She opened her eyes in time to see him shove a piece of white coconut flesh against her lips. Slowly, she opened her mouth and began to chew without looking away from his steady gaze. Yeah, Josh Ryder definitely had sexy down to a science. Even in a crisis, he managed to ooze sex appeal and charm.
Sometimes she really hated the man.
