Excerpt

It seemed funny, but there was something beautiful about the way he worked. More than just a new product, the virtual shoe was more of a sculpture and the pen his chisel.

Glancing up at his face, she saw his dark blue eyes were trained on the screen, deep in concentration. It was as if he was oblivious to her nearness as he continued to amendthe design. But she couldn’t ignore his proximity. On the contrary, she was fully aware of his warm, masculine scent, and the sensation of his soft sweater as it swept across her back and down her arm.

It had been so long since she’d been held by a man. Make no mistake, her encounter with Ben had been physical. Unexpected, wild and lustful, it was the type of exuberant fun she’d only read about or seen in the movies. But that’s all it was. A one-night encounter that lacked tenderness, depth, and true passion.

Now, though it wasn't a real embrace, she was enveloped in Carter’s arms, watching as he created something she could only call art. Could this be the same man who only recently had ignited her anger? If it was, he had unwittingly revealed another side of himself, one she couldn't deny was attractive.

Her stomach fluttered and it wasn’t due to a hunger pang or the baby. “Wow, you’re pretty amazing.” The words slipped out before she could check them.

“Thanks. It’s the best part of my job.” He turned his head slightly and smiled. “And the only thing that keeps me sane.”

Their eyes locked.

Gwen swallowed hard as heat rushed to her cheeks. He was so handsome it nearly made her weep. This close, his smoldering navy blues were soulful, vulnerable. This was not the Carter she’d sparred with since moving to River View. This was someone else entirely. Someone she suddenly wanted to get to know much, much better.

Her gaze flitted to his lips. Gone was his trademarked arrogant smirk. Upturned slightly at the corner, his smile was open and inviting. His grin looked soft and so very kissable.

Her own mouth parted. Every cell in her body implored her to lean forward and taste him. What was she thinking? This was wrong on so many levels. She was pregnant, and though they’d had some good times, it was likely that a not-so-small part of Carter still didn’t completely trust her. Kissing him now would slam right back his belief that she was a conniving schemer out to nab the Anderson fortune.

But his gaze seemed to implore her to give in to the war raging between her mind and body. She wanted to kiss him. Wanted to wrap her arms around his broad, strong back and melt into his arms. And she wanted him to want her.

His grip tightened around her hand as he dipped his chin. “You know, you’re pretty amazing, yourself.” His eyelids closed as he leaned toward her.

His Billion Dollar Baby
By Lea Nolan

Blurb: 
Can her love melt this CEO’s heart?
No-nonsense physical therapist Gwen Radley has scraped for everything she has, so she surprises even herself when she gives into the advances of a sexy ex-patient the night before he returns to Afghanistan. Then she learns she’s pregnant, just as the news arrives that her soldier has died.

Grieving over his brother’s death, billionaire Carter Anderson questions Gwen’s motives when he accidentally learns about her pregnancy. In his experience, women can’t be trusted, so he doubts Gwen’s insistence she has not interest in his family empire – especially after she moves in with his mother. When her therapy expertise has them collaborating on a lucrative business project, Carter sees her in a new light. But his suspicions persist, leading them both to wonder if he will ever embrace his brother’s baby – or the love that’s blooming between them.
