“He took the spatula and smiled, and she headed for the bedroom, only stopping once to see if he was watching her ass wiggle under his shirt.

He chuckled. “I’d have to be dead not to look.”

“I’m glad to see you’re in good health.” She grinned.”
Lisa Kessler, Lure of Obsession

“He raised a brow at another abrupt change in the conversation. “Are you disappointed I couldn’t dodge a couple bullets?”

A real smile teased her lips as she lowered her coffee mug. “On the contrary, I’m a sucker for a guy with scars, so for your protection, we should probably stick to the case.”
Lisa Kessler, Lure of Obsession

“You’re the fairy tale I never believed existed.”
