First Meet – Sentinel

Monday, February 15th, 2021

“Hello,” she stammered. “I’m sorry if I’m trespassing. I didn’t mean to.” Tall, dark, and handsome remained silent, just watching her with a gaze that seemed to burn even hotter. “Okay, then,” she gritted out. “I’ll just get out of your way.”

Nahia moved toward him, and her insides trembled when his nose flared as if he were inhaling her scent. Her body responded powerfully.

“It’s not a problem,” he said in a deep voice that made her knees weak. “Feel free to go into the meadow and to the lake.”

She cast a glance over her shoulder before looking back at the man, who still leaned against the rough bark of the tree. It was like he hadn’t moved an inch. “I shouldn’t. I’m sure it’s private property.”

“It is.”

Nahia stared at him, waiting for something more. “Are you the owner?”


Well, aren’t you just full of freaking information? She had to bite back the urge to try and get him to talk more, just to feel the silky pull of his voice move over her skin. “Then I won’t go.” Her steps had her next to him before he spoke again.

“I know the owner, and I’m sure he won’t mind.”

Again, that pull to walk through the thick, lush grass and dangle her feet in the sparkling water grabbed her. Swallowing as the scent of crisp mountain air and something else reached her, she shook her head. This man smells as good as he looks. “I’d just as soon not make anyone upset.” Shoving down her attraction for this man whose name she didn’t even know, Nahia kept walking.

Stay, Nahia.

The words were spoken in her ear and flowed both over and through her.
