“He left you at the altar?” A little thrill chased up Claire’s spine as the big bear of a Viking with a shock of red hair swept his gaze over her, from the top of her head to the tips of her toes. He lingered for a few seconds on the fullness of her breasts. There was approval in his green eyes, and something even more thrilling: lust. After her dud of a fiancé, Finn’s appreciation was a welcome change. “This almost-husband of yours, Miss Cavanaugh…did he lose his mind?” “That’s what I’d like to think.” Claire tried to smile, but failed. The truth was, being jilted had dealt a devastating blow to her self-confidence. What was so horrible about her that Bruce Marley left her at the church, with a dozen attendants and three hundred of their friends, colleagues, and relatives shifting uncomfortably in their seats? “Christian, did you hear that? This beautiful woman was left at the altar. So she’s come to see us all by herself.” Finn looked past her as he spoke. “Aren’t we lucky?” “He wasn’t man enough for you, perhaps?” She turned around to see who asked the question. Her mouth watered. The man standing on the dock, legs spread, arms folded across his chest, highlighted by the Scandinavian sun had the looks of a Norse god. Well over six-feet, with blond hair, blue eyes, and shoulders that could carry all of a woman’s burdens, this man was straight out of her fantasies. “Christian Petersen,” he said by way of introduction. Oh, yes. This man was definitely man enough for her. “You’ve already met my partner, Finn Odegaard.” Christian offered his hand. “Welcome to Norway.” As a businesswoman in cosmopolitan London, Claire was accustomed to shaking hands, all day, every day. But she wasn’t prepared for the feeling of sensual awareness as Christian took her hand, and he held it engulfed in his large, strong grip. When she tried to pull away, he held onto her for a few seconds longer. Then suddenly she didn’t want him to let her go.
