This week’s theme for #MySexySaturday is That Sexy Moment, and it’s in the Library in this excerpt from Worth The Risk by Lyn O’Farrell.
This contemporary romantic comedy features Mitch Delaney, an ex-race car driver and Amanda Lloyd, a children’s librarian. In this scene, they meet in the children’s room right after Amanda has let slip with a “damn” after bumping her head while picking puzzle pieces off the floor.
Amanda Lloyd stared into a pair of roguish blue eyes and groaned silently. “I don’t usually swear in the library,” she said defensively.
“I didn’t know librarians swore at all.”
“Don’t tell anyone, but we’re not as stuffy as most people think.”
“Your secret’s safe with me.” He raised an eyebrow and grinned at her, revealing a devastating dimple.
She made a quick involuntary appraisal of the man in front of her. He was on the tall side of six feet, with a muscular chest and forearms. His black hair gleamed in the light, and his eyes were a brilliant shade of blue. Even the tiny scar between his dark brows couldn’t detract from his rugged good looks. His short-sleeved blue knit shirt stretched taut across his powerful shoulders, and his stonewashed blue jeans fit perfectly.
She had seen attractive men before, had even been engaged to one, but this one was a potent blend of detached amusement and raw sensuality. What in the world was he doing here? He looked as out of place in the children’s room as a panther in a playground, and just as dangerous. It was as if one of the stuffed animals sitting around the room had suddenly come to life and was on the prowl.
Amanda was jolted back to the present as the armload of puzzle pieces slipped out of her grasp and thudded to the floor. How much more ridiculous could she look? She knelt down and started collecting the traitorous pieces.
A publicity-shy librarian falls for a sexy single dad with a scandalous past, but is love worth the risk?
