All Julie Steffens wants is a quiet couple of days on a Caribbean beach. Just her, a good book, and the balmy sea breeze. But the minute she meets Seth Cooper, sparks start to fly, and she’s tempted into the one type of adventure she’s never tried. The only question is, will one night be enough? (A sizzling 14,000 word short story in the Serendipity Adventure Romance series.)

“You good?” he murmured. His voice just about vibrated into her chest, it was that low. That close.
She managed a nod and searched for somewhere to put her hands. They ended up flat up against his abs, which seemed slightly more acceptable than around his waist.
“I’m fine,” she murmured, feeling his body heat under her touch.
Feeling more than fine, because he was that close.
All but the noise of the crowd was gone, and all but the sight of him closed away. His eyes dropped to her lips, then bounced back up again.
God, I’d like to kiss you, they said.
God, I’d like that, she wanted to reply.
His gaze was like a spotlight, and her heart thumped as he leaned in. Closer. Closer, until he was right over her lips.
Then he blinked, and she could practically see the barriers jump up his mind. What the hell am I doing?
“Julie—” he started.
Nuh-uh. No second thoughts. She grabbed him by the collar and pulled him closer. He’d been thinking about a kiss, and damn it, that’s what he’d get. That’s what she’d get, too. No more thinking, no more wondering.
