I don’t scare easily. But she’s haunting my dreams. Haunting all my fantasies. And I’ll gladly let her.
Although I could have any woman I want, I’m not a hit it and quit it kinda guy. I want something more, something lasting and real. I don’t make a habit of sleeping with the tourists, but when Elise walks into O’Shea’s Pub, I forget my mantra. Her fiery red hair, emerald green eyes, and curves for days, all leave me breathless and a bit off kilter. I’m an O’Shea. A businessman, an ex-Navy SEAL. When I start a mission, I complete it; just like I was trained to do. I will sweep the independent beauty off her feet, I will convince her to stay with me forever. And when her creep boss shows up on my island to try and stake his claim, I will show him that no one messes with what is mine.
Elise is mine to claim. And so is the precious gift she’s carrying.
