An Excerpt from Opposites Attract Holly sucked in a deep breath. This wasn't on her agenda. The neat picture she'd formed of Brett Adair -- short, thin, pale and chain-smoking -- was just blown into next week. She preferred her men sharp, from their haircuts to their suits, to their minds. No way did she have any interest whatsoever in a lanky American with a cowboy hat and an accent straight from The Dukes of Hazzard . He probably made moonshine in his spare time, when he wasn't shooting squirrels or ... whatever they did.
She would make her position crystal clear. "The only things I plan on enjoying are the sights of Paris. I don't intend to let the fact I have to see them in the company of a stranger spoil my weekend. It's unfortunate, but I'm sure we can make the best of things."
"Hey, you don't take any prisoners do you?" Brett threw up his arms in mock surrender.
"Actually I do, often, or have you forgotten what I do for a living?"
Brett laughed. The deep, warm sound of it sent a little shiver through her belly. That laugh made her almost give in and smile.
"Smart lady. You're quick on the draw, anyone ever tell you that?"
"Not if they wanted to see me again." Mortified heat instantly flamed in her cheeks. God, that sounded like flirting.
A lazy smile crept from his eyes -- a deep Mediterranean blue she'd have preferred not to notice -- all the way to his mouth, turning up the edges of lips way too tempting to a woman who hadn't been kissed in over a year. Her belly clenched. She told herself she was just hungry.
Brett tipped his head toward her and stared straight into her eyes. One slight move, and his mouth would touch hers. Oh, God. Would he kiss her senseless if she wasn't careful? Her heart raced. Would he dare? Did she want him to?
