Before he could wrap his mind around the why of his first mate’s actions, a knock sounded at the door. “Enter,” he yelled and continued to stare at the garden through the private dining room’s paned windows. He was acting rude, but he wanted to assert control over the battling beasts before facing the woman who managed to wheedle Colin into giving a recommendation.

The sound of a feminine throat clearing stiffened his spine, and he whirled around to face the woman. Oxygen left him in a rush. There stood the lass who haunted his dreams for the past night and day—since he saw her on the street and returned the damn scarf. The simple touch of their fingers had produced sparks. Remnants of the intense jolt of power that released the panther from tight restraints continued to surge through his blood.

He needed to be wary of this dangerous woman. He couldn’t hire her—have her near him, night after night, for the entire duration of a cruise. Too great would be temptation.

Robert studied her tall, slim form. She appeared elegant even though casually dressed. Soft chocolate eyes peered from a sculpted ivory face framed by shoulder-length curly brown hair. His gaze fed on lush lips that begged for passionate kisses.

When a pink tongue darted out and moistened those lips, every muscle in his body clenched. Fire raced through his veins. He was lost.

He couldn’t allow it. He strengthened his resolve. “Please, have a seat,” he reluctantly offered.
