(A big thank you, Stephanie for letting me share a bit of Rhett today here at your blog!)
Poor, poor Rhett Worth. He’s trying to do what’s right. Walk the straight and narrow line, throw himself into his work and focus on the new project his brothers gave him to work on. But the pretty perfumer he’s working with distracts him and he can’t get her out of his head. What’s a man to do? Be strong or give in to temptation?
Please enjoy this exclusive, never before seen teaser of an excerpt from Worth the Challenge, the latest in the Worth It series:
She was unexpectedly sassy and hell if that little hint of attitude didn’t turn him on. He’d tried his best to ignore her on the plane, diving headfirst into work, keeping his eyes focused on the laptop screen and not her. Sitting across from him, her pretty legs crossed and giving him a flash of ankle and shin, the teasing glimpse made him sweat.
Her shin and ankle, for the love of God. He was a boob man, an ass man. The sort of man who used to ask women to flash him their tits and they would do so willingly. Flash their chests, lift their skirts, it had all been so easy.
And now that he reflected on his past, it had been so empty.
He’d done a one-eighty because he knew it was the right thing to do. And he was still tempted—even more so, since she was like the forbidden fruit. Either Gabriella Durand had been sent by the devil himself to lure him back to the dark side or it was already too late.
Rhett was going straight to hell and there was no turning back.
Misery coursing through him, he watched as she walked down to the beach, her steps careful, her hair billowing all around her with the breeze. The dress she wore exposed an inordinate amount of skin compared to what she usually wore, and all of that pretty, creamy skin was on flagrant display. Waiting for the intense sun to char it to a bright red color, which he knew would be painful.
He was obsessed with her. Couldn’t get her out of his head, couldn’t stop wondering what it might be like, to really kiss her. Take her hand and lead her to his room. Strip that dress right off her and see her naked.
Worth The Challenge book blurb:
Together, they’re magic. Now to capture it in a bottle…
Worth It, Book 3
For once in his errant life, Rhett Worth is ready to prove to his older brothers he’s more than good looks and a woman-melting smile. Except he’s screwed up. And it’s about to hit the fan as he prepares to tell them he’s failed to deliver the master perfumer, Michel Durand, to create Worth Luxury’s signature scent.
Then salvation walks through the boardroom door, all wrapped up in a petite, seductive package.
Gabriella Durand is prepared to beg the Worths to give her capricious father another chance. Instead, she finds the devastatingly handsome Rhett Worth offering it to her as if he’d planned it all along. And Gabriella, hungry to emerge from her father’s shadow, jumps at it.
Soon they’re in Maui to hunt for the perfect scent…and find it in the tropical breeze that washes across their entwined bodies. Now the pressure is on to capture that passion in a bottle—before they let love complicate the delicate mix. Before a whiff of betrayal threatens to destroy everything.
