Valentine crawled from the bed and stumbled her way into the living room, holding one hand to her throbbing head. Her eyes were barely open and not focusing well. “Oh gawd, oh gawd. Turn down the ocean,” she moaned as she headed for the sliding glass door she’d left open.

Even the tiny slit of sunlight she was able to see was excruciating. She squeezed her eyes closed while she continued toward her destination. A few steps later her knee hit a metal bar and she stubbed her toe, making her yelp in pain. Her eyes flew open even as she fell face forward across the open sofabed. Face forward over a large, warm, obviously male body.

Immediately the male body, that had been nearly dead to the world, burst to life. “What the hell!”

Almost at the same time Shelby knocked on the front door. “Sam? Sam, what’s going on in there?” She pounded again. “Sam!”

Valentine scrambled upright, her hands flying to her head, which seemed to be threatening to explode. She glanced down in horror—okay, and definite appreciation—at the deliciously naked form of Sam Thompson. The cowboy she’d met the night before. The man that, even through the fuzziness surrounding her brain, she wanted to throttle on Shelby’s behalf.

“What are you doing here?” she managed to ask, rubbing her forehead with her fingers in a useless attempt to calm the headache. “Oh gawd. Just shoot me now,” she added on an agonized moan.

“Not a bad idea,” Sam grumbled and reached around her to snatch at the top sheet he must have thrown aside in the middle of the night. While the wicked woman inside her wanted to protest his action, he stood and drew the sheet around his body from the waist down. He glowered and snapped, “This is my condo, Not yours.”

“Sam! I hear you in there, let me in!” Shelby called out, pounding again on the door.

Valentine gaped in mortification. She felt the color draining from her face as she realized his sister was about to catch them in pretty bad circumstances. She looked at Sam for some kind of help and found him heatedly staring at her. No help from his quarter.

Then she followed his gaze and glanced down. Heat rapidly spread over her entire body. Somehow she’d lost her bikini top. Her breasts were bare. His attention was completely focused on them and, to her displeasure, her nipples hardened in response. Could she possibly be any more humiliated?

Evidently yes because she burst into tears. She detested crying in front of someone else, which made her quietly sob harder. What a horrible start to a day! In the midst of her pity party moment, she heard Shelby pound on the door yet again.

Sam’s brown eyes darkened even more. Her breasts! Cheeks flaming at the realization that she’d done nothing about her exposure, she covered her traitorous breasts with her arms.

His focal points now partially covered, he came out of his stupor. “Oh shit! Shelby!”

He looked in a panic from her to the door, and then back at her. He started to pull the sheet from around his body and she was sure he intended to cover her up with it.

She held out a hand to stop him. “No! No, you idiot!” she yelped, sobs immediately quieting. She couldn’t let him remove that sheet and stand there in all his male glory. A voice in her suffering head told her she was nuts to refuse such an opportunity. Another voice taunted her that she’d just recently convinced herself that she was lesbian.

She latched onto that twisted reasoning in desperation and blurted out, “A man’s naked body does not affect me! Not at all!”

“Oh, honey, it sure as hell does.” His gaze zeroed in on her one uncovered breast. “Those rosy nipples have…”

Her face flamed even more as his comment faded away. “Stop it! Focus! Your sister.”

He scowled and tightened the sheet back around him. He spotted his shirt tossed on the floor, went to pick it up, and threw it at her. “Put this on. I’ve got to go let Shelby in before she beats the damn door down.”

His hand on the chain lock, he faced her again. “Lady, you’re completely crazy thinking you’re a woman lover. But I don’t have the time to prove that to you right now.”

Valentine stiffened at his comment. “Nothing you could do…“ She slammed her mouth shut, sensing she was lying. She had felt warmth pooling low in her body at her first glimpse of his nakedness. She had felt moisture beading between her legs.

A spark of something sexy, something challenging flitted in his eyes. “Darlin’, you’re so wrong.” Just to annoy her, she was sure, he glanced down at his erection pushing the sheet out.

Now her heart raced and her knees weakened. Darn him!

My story-related question: What has Valentine recently decided and that Sam thinks is crazy?

Valentine is a romance therapist burned out on the whole idea of romance. She needs a break from dating GQ fashioned stockbrokers and men whose lives revolve around their over-priced cars, high-tech apartments, and their belief that they’re super studs in bed. She needs time away from a therapy partnership that no longer makes her happy. Right now, nothing makes her happy. She needs a Calgon-take-me-away escape from all of it, and remembers how a recent client invited Valentine to her wedding in Maui. What better place for an escape? No pushy men to deal with. No pressures from her partners. Just time alone in paradise!

Sometimes paradise has its problems, too. Especially when her client’s cowboy rat older brother shows up, and Valentine wants to throttle him for his past overbearing ways toward his sister! Sam isn’t too thrilled to see the dipstick counselor who mucked up his adoring baby sister either. The interfering woman keeps right on butting her nose into his business, making him strongly feel the need to apply his hand to her sweet little bottom! Only touching her makes them both want so much more!
