It’s Christmas, Cupid! (The Naughty Klaus Collection) by Drea Riley – Romance>African-American
With Nick and Jessica cooling their heels in Key West, the Klaus children are tasked with running Christmas. Nothing but shenanigans could come from this arrangement. Or murder if Jaq has to spend winter babysitting the son of Cupid.
Amur knew Jaq would rather kill him than speak to him. And he’d stand still and let her do it, but he’d prefer it to be as the French say ,“la petite mort.”
He’d be willingly die a thousand times as long as it was between her thighs
“You are so beautiful when you smile like that.”
His deep voice washed over her. She hadn’t seen him approach her car, let alone noticed that he’d opened the back door and was tossing his bag in.
“Amur, you startled me!”
Jaq twisted around and meet his blue gaze. She was all prepared to blast him with chilly indifference, but once her eyes locked on to his, she was lost. His broad shoulders filled the back of her SUV, making it feel more like a compact economy car than a large off-road capable truck.
“Breathe,” he whispered.
Jaq blinked several times before taking a breath. Until he spoke, she hadn’t realized she wasn’t breathing. She felt her face flush, and immediately spun away from his eyes. What the hell was that
“Hurry up and get in,” she groused, barely waiting until he folded his large frame into the front seat before pulling away from the curb.
Amur bit the inside of his cheek as he hurriedly closed the door to the SUV before it could become a casualty of its owner’s ire. He cast a sidelong glance at Jaq and had to bite down harder to keep from laughing outright.
She was trying so hard to steel her features and pretend he wasn’t in the car as she navigated through the airport traffic while fiddling with the radio—turning the volume up way past a tolerable listening level.
He wondered how many ways she’d curse him if he suggested they stop and get something to eat.
Leaning his head back against the seat, he settled in for the long drive. He knew if he spoke to her now, he’d just irritate her more, and that wasn’t going to be conducive to his plans.
