Overview

Toni Peters rarely takes chances or tries new things, always sticking close to home and going along with the tried and the true--until her old schoolfriend, Jane Doyle, working at a hotel in Paris, France, calls and suggests they take a month-long tour of Europe, the vacation of shopping, sightseeing, and sunbathing they've always talked about but never got around to taking. When Toni arrives in Paris, however, she discovers Jane has quit her job and moved south to another hotel in Marseille. Toni goes to Marseille and checks all the hotels, but to no avail. Jane seems to have mysteriously disappeared off the planet--that is, until Toni receives an unsigned note telling her to be at Les Arbres in Cassis at noon the next day.

Read an Excerpt

He reached out and began to stroke her face. His touch was tender and caring and not only made her feel wanted, it also sent a thousand shivers of need racing down her back before they settled between her legs.

"You'll probably think I'm fibbing, if I say I'm feeling a bit embarrassed," he said, a faint smile playing over his lips. "That I've never engaged in anything anywhere near this impromptu before."

"You haven't?"

"Of course not." He looked a little put out by the suggestion that his reckless behavior was an everyday occurrence. "I can assure you I'm not in the habit of ripping the clothes off any woman who happens to darken my door and having at it the way we just did. I really don't know what I was thinking of."

Toni laughed. "Having at it?"

"Getting my leg over. Getting it off. Doing it. However, you want to describe what we just did."

"I take it those are British euphemisms."

"I guess. What do Americans say?"

"We say getting laid or screwed. Fuck is probably the number one favorite. There are other colorful expressions, too, but it all amounts to the same thing."

He ran the tip of his forefinger down her nose. "I honestly don't know what happened to me when I opened the door and found you standing on the step. A flash of electricity; a moment of truth. Call it whatever you want. Just one look, and I was sand-bagged. I felt this weird connection, and I think you did, too. I knew we wouldn't be able to keep our hands off each other if I let you in."

"I know. Weird? Hmm ... you think maybe I put you under a spell? Or did you figure the fuck fairy sent me?"

"The what?" Neil stared at her for a instant, then dissolved intolaughter. "Who, pray tell, is the fuck fairy?"

Instead of joining in his merriment, Toni tried to look serious. "I'll have you know the fuck fairy is no laughing matter. She provides an important public service from what I've been told. I've never actually met her, of course. And I don't know anyone who has. But never mind all this instant attraction nonsense. Have you forgotten you almost shut your door in my face?"

"No. Like I said, I knew what would happen if I let you in, so I tried to keep you out."

She smiled and ran her fingers over the dusting of hair on his chest. "Waste of time. Can't change Fate. What's meant to happen will happen, and there's nothing we can do about it."

"So I've discovered." Taking her hand, he nipped one her fingers with his teeth, then sucked it gently. "It was really good between us. I'm not sorry it happened."
