T-R-O-U-B-L-E: Texas Heat
Trouble comes calling on Kyler Landon. He falls hard and fast for his beautiful, mysterious neighbor after she saves him from a rattlesnake attack. The sexual tension mounts between them with each sensual encounter, but he soon realizes that Cooper has been hurt and is leery of men. So he sets out to teach her that a real man can be gentle, loving, and sexy as hell.
“Come on; let’s take care of the paperwork. If you’ll let me, I’ll bring everyone over after I finish for the day. I have pet carriers.” He made the suggestion casually, but tensed up, waiting on the verdict. Cooper was silent for a moment. She looked at him closely, as if trying to read his mind . “That’s very nice of you, but I can’t put you to that much trouble. I don’t mind making two trips.” “It won’t be any trouble, and it’s certainly not out of my way. We live right next to one another. Besides, I have that package I need to deliver.” This time she heard him. “Package? What package?” He couldn’t help it. He grinned. “Yeah, I told you earlier that UPS delivered a package of yours to my house by mistake.” Blood rushed to her face. “You have my, uh, special delivery?” “’Deed I do.” He looked like the cat that ate the canary. “Sorry about that. I hope it didn’t embarrass you. I tell you what, to make up for any inconvenience, when you bring my package and the animals, I’ll trade you a home cooked meal.” “Sounds great. I’ll bring a bottle of wine.” Maybe, this would be easier than he thought. An answer to a prayer. Oh, no. Cooper stopped. She looked at Ky, closely . “A bottle of wine?” “You don’t drink?” he asked. Why was she looking at him like that? He would swear she looked wistful for a moment. Taking a step back, she looked at the ground. “I wasn’t assuming you would want to come and sit down with me to eat, Ky. My intention was to cook you a meal, pack it in into to-go boxes, and send it home with you. As a thank you.” Ky was adamant. “If you’re not busy, I would like to have dinner with you, Cooper.” “That’s very nice of you. An honor, really. But like I told you yesterday, I don’t socialize very much.” “I don’t want to take my food home in a doggie bag , Cooper. I want to sit down and eat with you and talk, get to know you. I would like to call on you, sweetheart.” “Why?” So, she wanted to know why. Ky chuckled. So, he would tell her. “Why? Because, you are the most beautiful woman I have ever seen . You are nice, and you like animals. We have things in common. Mainly, it’s because I’m very attracted to you, love.” “You need glasses.” The look on her face was still skeptical, but at least she was smiling.
