Welcome to The Romance Reviews Mega Anniversary and Valentines Party! Enjoy the festivities and a sneak peek at my not-yet-released novel, Forget-Me-Not.
The screech of tires on asphalt had both men jerking their heads anticipating the inevitable crash.
A small woman with dark blond hair streaked by the sun, shapely legs and a trim waist highlighted by a conservative blue skirt and matching jacket stepped off the curb across the street. Both men sucked in a startled breath as she nearly got plastered to the blacktop by a passing car, then howled with laughter as she casually flipped off the driver and laughed at herself.
The men watched appreciatively as the woman strode across the street, removing the help wanted sign from the window as she pulled open the door, and marched to the office where they stood.
Jake and Ben exchanged amused looks.
Jake took in her wind tussled hair, silvery almost transparent pale blue eyes and the scoop of her button down silk shirt that shifted slightly askew and revealed the swell of her breasts. “Can I help you?” Jake held out his hand to shake hers.
“I’m Sarah Hall and I’m here to take the office manager job you have advertised.” She shook his hand then gave him the sign she’d taken down from the window. “I’m sure you’ll find my qualifications acceptable.”
Amused, he motioned for her to take a seat. “I’m Jacob Porter and I have some time right now to talk this over.” He placed his hand on Ben’s back and practically shoved him out the office door.
“Ben? I’m sure you have other work to do.”
Ben waggled his eyebrows, lifted a shoulder and casually left, shutting the door behind him.
Jake explained the responsibilities the job entailed and stubbornly tried to conduct himself as an interviewer instead of a date.
Sarah answered each question while looking him directly in the eyes, careful to exclude the years she’d spent studying a profession she’d never had any interest in. “When would you like me to start Mr. Porter?”
“You’re quite confident in yourself Mrs. Hall.” Jake noticed the way her tongue shot out to gently wet her lips, showing her nervousness.
“Miss Hall.” She corrected.
“Miss Hall.” He amended with a nod of his head. “You’re very confident in yourself, but I haven’t offered you the job yet.”
She flashed a smile at him and he swore his heart skipped a couple of beats.
She was right of course. He hadn’t really had another candidate as qualified for the job as she was. Not to mention he’d probably have to turn in his man card if he didn’t take a shot at getting to see her every day.
“Why do you think so?” She either read him very well or was just arrogant but he decided to play out the hand and see where it went.
“Well,” she began “the desk in the outer office,” she indicated the reception desk with a jerk of her chin, “as well as yours, is covered with paperwork. The phone hasn’t stopped ringing since I’ve walked in here and you’ve had more direct eye contact with my breasts than my eyes.”
