One Real Man

By: Coleen Kwan

“You’re sure?”

“As sure as I’m going to get you naked very, very soon.”

“I’ll hold you to that,” he growled, pulling her to him for a quick, hard kiss. “If you’re going to stay in Burronga, there’s a local job opening soon that might be up your alley.”

“What job?”

“We were just discussing it over lunch. Bandicoot Creek requires a proper marketing campaign. We need someone to create the brand and help us sell it. Think you might be interested?”

“Of course.” Enthused at the prospect, she sat up and flicked her hair behind her ears. “I’ll give you a copy of my CV, and then we can set up an interview.”

He pulled back a little to gaze at her. “Sweetheart, you don’t need to interview for the job.”

“Yes, I do. I want this fair and square.” Smiling, she lifted her chin. “Besides, I have an impressive résumé.”

Owen grinned back at her. “That’s fortunate, because it’ll be a demanding job.”

“I’m used to working hard.” She trailed her hand over his chest, her palm coming to rest over his beating heart. “But in return I expect a good remuneration package.”

He splayed his hand across her thighs, triggering a rush of heat in her that coalesced between her legs. “Well…the job does come with some interesting fringe benefits.”

She fluttered her eyelashes at him. “Go on.”

“You get to share my bed on a permanent basis.”

She laughed, suffused with love and growing hunger for him. If Owen didn’t carry her off to his bedroom soon, she’d have to do it herself. “Hmm, that sounds tempting.”

Chuckling, he drew her closer, his mouth oh so irresistibly near. “Let me give you a demonstration, princess.”
