Allowing me to live
The rest? Maybe she can understand my hunger. For her. Dominating her. Owning her.
Danger. Domination. Destruction.
An elite team of smokejumpers nestled in the heart of Missoula, Montana.
By day they indulge in their penchant for danger.
By night they exude passion.
Are you ready for their brand of domination?
Prevent. Protect. Preserve. This is their motto.
After another few minutes, she made up her mind. She had to eat something or she’d pass out. She grabbed her purse and eased out of the truck, closing the door with a hard thud. She glared at the neon infused sign. “Ziggy’s. That’s a fabulous name.” Rolling her eyes, she took tentative steps forward. Why had she chosen to wear heels of any type? The parking lot was paved but hadn’t seen a good seal coating job in years, if not decades.
“Freaking place,” she muttered and walked toward the entrance. Bad country music assaulted her senses. The singer sounded like he had rocks in his mouth. From behind her she heard the sound of an engine, one that couldn’t come from a souped-up he-man vehicle. There was no way the intense revving would come from a Ram or Ford POS. She stepped away from the truck just as the car came careening into the parking lot, skidding past her. Gravel shot up, landing all over her jeans and shirt. A wet slap of something cold landed on her cheek. She jumped back and shrieked. “Asshole!”
The person driving had no doubt seen the mishap. She could tell by the head jerk in the vehicle. They didn’t stop to see if she was all right. No, that would be the decent thing to do. She wiped her shirt and jeans and watched to see where he parked. The car skidded to a stop in a parking spot merely fifteen feet away.
Now she was furious. She was exhausted, out of sorts and ready for several glasses of wine, perhaps an entire bottle. This wasn’t the best welcome into a town that was supposed to be special, at least according to Maggie. When the door to the car opened, she took off tromping in its direction. She stopped short when he existed the vehicle.
Long legs were followed by a tall man wearing what else, a cowboy hat, tight jeans and a pair of cowboy boots, the tips shining like silver. She stopped for a second when the guy slammed the door and used a key fob, the back lights indicating he’d succeeded. He briefly looked in her direction, making eye contact before heading for the door. Not a care in the world.
“Whew.” Yes, he was gorgeous with shaggy blond hair and a face that she could melt into. Yes, he had a perfect, muscular body, but she wasn’t going to allow good looks to get in the way. No, she wasn’t going to fall for any man’s good looks and charm. She was finished being arm candy. “Just who do you think you are?” She strutted toward him. He didn’t register her comment. She cleared her throat and tried again. “Yo, bub. Did you realize what you just did?”
“Excuse me? Bub?” He stopped and peered in her direction.
“You heard me. Who do you think you are coming into the parking lot that way? You could have killed me!” She moved closer.
His eyes twinkled as he looked down the length of her, concentrating on her shoes. “I don’t think my driving is gonna kill ya, girl. I think your shoes just might.”
