(By Eve Summers)
Miles reached for her hair again and this time he did touch it, light strokes at first, then a handful at a time. ―Soft,‖ he said. She felt a gentle tug and his wolf mouth got closer. ―Spiky.‖ His fingers were in her hair, pinning it up, exposing her neck. The words came out hoarse, squashed with sexual craving. ―Would you offer your throat to a wolf with the red roses?‖
That song never failed to set her senses on fire. Her heart still drummed against the cage of her chest, but it wasn‘t a symptom of panic anymore.
―There,‖ he said stepping back. His trailing fingers brushed her nipples. ―I think it worked.‖
It damned well worked… and not only the way he meant. Angelica‘s nipples felt bare without his touch, her stomach knotted with sheer lust. She hadn‘t had sex with anybody except her cheating ex–husband, now over a year ago.
She was on the wrong side of forty. Miles probably still on the right side of thirty. But hell, it was Christmas, and she owed it to herself.
―Would he offer me his mouth?‖ she quoted right back, as though there had been no interruption.
His thumb tilted her face, his forefinger drew a slow teasing line around her lips. She tasted him with the tip of her tongue. Zing! Pure chemistry.

Where’s the best place to find Mr. Right if you’re a hopelessly romantic booklover?
The library, of course.
If You Like Pina Coladas - Excerpt
Sarah found it in a library copy of Paulo Coelho’s “The Alchemist”. An ordinary sheet of paper from a spiral notebook.
To the Woman of my Dreams, the note began. If this book speaks to your soul, I’ve been waiting for you since forever. Please leave your reply in the library copy of a particular book. Tip: If you like Pina Coladas...
The bit about the woman of his dreams would’ve sounded corny, except “The Alchemist” was all about following one’s dream - the journey and the destination.
Sarah’s curiosity grew. What man would use a library book the way others used online dating sites? A fellow booklover, someone who enjoyed puzzles…. Oh, and pop songs.
If you like Pina Coladas.... The tip left Sarah mystified. A book with Pina Colada in the title? Too easy. A book about cocktails? Too lame. A book about an estranged couple who ultimately realise they are meant for each another? True of a gazillion novels.
Think again. Who sang the Pina Colada song?
