The trail meandered out of the trees onto a ridgeline, which dropped off in a sheer descent to a valley below. Kane stopped and turned to face her, holding her gaze.
“Are you attracted to me?”
A blush colored her cheeks, but she didn’t hesitate to speak. “Yes, my sister knows me well.”
A bit of the weight eased. “The feeling’s mutual.” He bent to pick up a rock then sent it soaring into space. “So, Nolan and Grace wanted to warn you I’m a head case.”
“It wasn’t like that.”
“Then what was it like?”
Rachel sighed. “My marriage ended in disaster, and I haven’t dated much since. When it comes to men, Grace is overly protective. She doesn’t want me to get hurt again.”
“And based on a half-hour conversation, she thought I would hurt you? Or was that Nolan’s idea?”
“Grace wanted me to know you have some personal issues to deal with. She thought you might not be a great relationship risk at the moment.”
“All I did was walk you to your car.”
Rachel crossed her arms and gazed out at the view. “She didn’t say a word until I told her I was coming up here. Then she got it into her head I was planning this vacation as a way to see you again.”
His heart jumped. He reached out a finger to stroke her cheek. “Was she right?”
“I had several reasons for wanting to make this trip.”
“Was I one of them?”
She nodded and licked her lips. The flick of her tongue destroyed his self-control. Stepping forward, he gripped her arms as his mouth covered hers in a quick hard kiss. When it ended, he didn’t release her.
“I like being a reason.”
I wish you and your family a very happy Easter!
