Excerpt:
Oscar lightly touched her hand, letting a finger trail from her wrist to her fingertip. “You allowed to dance while on the job?”
Technically, her job was done for the night. Amelia could have left already with the assurance the remainder of the celebration would proceed without issue. But dancing with him seemed too appealing to be a good idea. “I’m here to observe and troubleshoot. I don’t join in the fun.”
“Maybe you should.” He pulled her gently along to stand in the center of the patio. With one hand resting on the small of her back, he held her hand with the other. “After all your hard work, you deserve to enjoy it, even only for one dance.”
Her resolve turned to a puddle at her feet, along with her inclination to keep her mind totally on business. She hazily comprehended she was standing on cool cobblestones with bare feet. Between the warmth of Oscar’s coat and the closeness of his body, she was perfectly comfortable.
As he held her underneath a sky now full of stars, she didn’t allow her normally practical nature to invade the pleasantness of the moment. She liked him, was physically attracted to him, and stayed reassured her feelings held no danger. He worked for her, temporarily, and his home was in a country where he was its rightful king.
She wouldn’t fall for him. Just as he would never see her as anything more than the nice American woman who’d given him a job.
