Love at First Sigh
Two sizzling contemporary romance stories
Handy Hubby Hire
Tired of the maintenance jobs mounting up in her house, Sara hires a handyman. She never dreams someone like Griffen Fox will show up to fix the faucets and back yard gate. Sparks fly, but will they lose their heart to each other?
When Emma takes a long weekend vacation in a warm beach resort, she meets the very handsome Matt Tyler. They spend an idyllic few days together. Will this only be a holiday romance?
Griffen Fox drew a deep breath as he watched Sara walk down the hall to her office. He grinned as he took in the sight of her soft ass in her cutoff jeans. Made for grabbing … she’s made for fucking. Pretty, beautiful eyes, lips that make you want to bite them hard as you ram her onto your cock. Damn, Griff, that’s a little over the top, get a grip, and start work.
He opened the front door, clicked up the catch so that it wouldn’t lock him out, and went to his truck. An old F500, he’d covered the tray top and made space there for tools and supplies. It proved a good workhorse. Griffen calculated the time it would take to do the jobs in the house … not long really. They were pesky jobs, but not hard or time consuming, as in taking a week, unless he strung them out. He’d be there most of the day and one more morning. He looked back at the house from his vantage point on the gravel drive. It’s a nice place. She seems to live there alone. What’s a lovely woman like that doing with no man in her life? Maybe there is one. Maybe I’ll ask her.
Griffen took his tools and supplies into the house and started work. He hummed as he worked. He thought about Sara as he rehung the backyard gate. He liked the way her nipples peaked in that tight, white T-shirt, before she covered them up. She’d gazed hungrily at him, too. There was something needy about her that made him want to pick her up, crush her to his body, kiss her tenderly, and then fuck her hard. Fuck away that fleeting sadness in her eyes. Fuck a smile onto that pretty face. Have those delicate fingers of hers curl around my cock … have those full lips suck it. Hell, I’m getting an erection. I’d like to kiss her. I like her. I do. I bet she tastes sweet.
He jumped when her voice interrupted his thoughts.
“I’m making coffee. Would you like a cup?”
She stood behind him and he turned. The sunlight caught her hair and lit it up with golden streaks. Her T-shirt skimmed the top of her low riding, cutoff jeans. Griffen stared at the flat expanse of stomach on display as she reached up and plucked a few dead twigs off the young tree nearby. He ran his tongue along his top lip as he saw the muscles in her thighs tighten when she stood on tiptoe. She’s lovely… Her nearness made him shake a little.
“I’d love a cup of coffee, thank you.” He steadied his voice, and followed her to the kitchen.
He stood as close as possible without being scary as she made the coffee. The soft part of her shoulder teased him as the scoop neckline of her T-shirt fell away. He wanted to suck on that satiny skin. He watched her and cast away any reservations. His cock already half-erect, his balls ached a little because his stomach clenched every time he caught sight of her nipples. They tantalized him through the white fabric. She’s not wearing a bra.
“There’s no one who could have helped with some of this work, no brother or boyfriend?” Griffen took his chance. He put his fingers over hers as she handed him the mug of coffee. The contact with her skin sent a jolt of desire right up his arm. His stomach tightened again so fast he stifled a groan. He shifted slightly so that she wouldn’t see his erection as she stepped away. The look on her face told him she’d felt something too when their hands brushed.
Her voice almost a whisper, she answered, “No one, at all.”
