An excerpt from LOVE IN DUBLIN

Copyright © Jennifer Gracen 2017

 

As she opened her mouth to say goodbye and thank him for joining her, Colin asked her if she’d have dinner with him.

 

Her heart skipped a beat. The way he was looking at her… he didn’t want the day to end yet either. Maybe he was ready for more than she thought? “Dinner? But you just spent all weekend with me.” She tossed him a playful grin as she joked, “Aren’t you tired of me by now?”

 

“No,” he said. The corners of his mouth turned up, a hint of sheepish and a lot of sexy. He stood there patiently, just gazing down at her.

 

Her heart fluttered. God, he was adorable. A knotted up burly bear with a sweet, kind heart. And lips she was dying to taste. And beautiful blue eyes that showed there was so much more on his mind than the short, polite things he said.

 

The noises of the city—cars driving, people walking by and talking, horns and shouts on the air—seemed to fade away as she stared back at him.

 

“I have to admit,” he said quietly, “I do enjoy your company.”

 

Delight and want made her stomach give a wobbly flip. She finally gave in to the impulse she’d been squelching all day. She dropped her duffel bag to the ground by her feet, placed her hands on his shoulders, and stood on her tiptoes to sweetly brush her lips across his.

 

“What are you doin’?” he whispered against her mouth, his eyes wide.

 

“Kissing you in the middle of Dublin.” She pressed her lips to his softly and his breath

hitched. Loving that, she did that again, lips brushing against his with a feather’s touch.

“Confession: I’ve been wanting to kiss you all day.”

 

“Is that so?” Amazement sparked in his eyes. His hands slowly lifted to her face.

 

“Mm hmm.” Her heart started racing, adrenaline coursing through her. His fingertips stroked her cheeks as his gaze locked with hers.

 

She kissed him again, still soft and gentle, still testing, gaging his reactions. His body was tense, holding back, but his eyes revealed how much he wanted her. As usual, there was so much going on in those bright blues… but right now, desire was the winner there, clear as day. It gave her a rush and she shivered from it.

 

“Actually,” she said, “the full truth is, I’ve been wanting to kiss you for weeks.”

 

His gaze burned into her. His hands slowly swept along her jaw, then cupped her face.

“Well… if we’re being truthful, I’ve been wantin’ to kiss you for weeks too.”

 

“Then you should,” she whispered, smiling up at him. “I mean, I already kissed you first…”

Finally finished, Nolan stripped his water-soaked shirt off and tossed it into the dryer. Then he stepped out of the laundry room. He nearly ran into Miranda, whose eyes widened at the sight of his bare chest. “My shirt got wet, but your washing machine is all fixed. I put it in your dryer.”

He’d been planning to ask her if she had a shirt he could wear. Not that he relished the thought of her having some guy’s shirt at her house. Now, however, seeing the way she was staring at his bare chest, he changed his mind. Instead, he patted his stomach and watched with interest as her breath hitched slightly. “I hope you don’t mind if I go shirtless.”

She blinked once. “Nope,” she muttered before turning away from him and heading back toward the kitchen. It had been impossible to miss the flush of her cheeks before she’d given him her back.

“Thank you for fixing my washing machine.” Her cheeks were full-on crimson now as they stepped into the kitchen. When she sort of looked at him, her cheeks were flushed and he realized her gaze was darting around as if she was trying hard not to look down at his chest.

Well that was interesting.

Very interesting. She’d made it so clear that she wasn’t looking for a relationship, but she’d also never looked at him like this. Of course, he’d never been half naked around her either. “The ziti smells good.”

Cheeks still red she hurried past him toward the oven, more or less avoiding looking at him altogether.

He’d never seen her flustered like this before. Hell, he’d have taken his shirt off a long time ago to get this reaction from her.

“I still can’t believe you didn’t know about Mary and Ethan.” Miranda opened the oven and pulled out the casserole dish.

He couldn’t help but stare at her ass as she did. Tearing his gaze from it, he headed for the refrigerator and pulled out an unopened bottle of white wine. “I never know town gossip. Unless my mom tells me.” He opened a drawer and found a wine bottle opener.

Laughing, she said, “Your mom is a trip. Did you know she had a bet on how long it would take Nora and Jackson to get together?”

He popped the cork. “She’s bet on all of her children.” Nolan doubted that his mom had one on him, but he never knew when it came to her.

“I can’t tell if you’re kidding.” She set the potholders down on the counter.

“Nope. Definitely not. She had bets on Fallon and Brad and Maguire and Samantha too. She actually started the betting pools at the salon—and I know she won at least one of them.”

Miranda blinked once. “Apparently I need to change salons.”

Nolan loved his mother, but really didn’t want to talk about her anymore. “So are you dating anyone?” He might as well ask the question. He didn’t think Miranda was, considering how long they’d been friends and she’d never once mentioned it.

There was a clattering sound and he realized she dropped the serving spoon. She cleared her throat. “No.” There was a long pause then, “Are you?” The question came out hesitant and she hadn’t turned around to face him yet.
