Olivia was going to be trouble. I watched as she walked into the kitchen in her oversize shirt nightgown which did nothing to hide her long shapely legs. She hadn’t seen me yet as I was standing to the right of the door, hidden by the shadows. She walked directly to the fridge and stood there without opening the door.
“Whatcha looking for?” I stepped out of the shadows and made my way towards her. She jumped slightly as she looked behind her.
“Oh, it’s you.” She blushed slightly as she took in my naked chest. “You scared me.”
“You’re still in your body, so it wasn’t that bad.” I grinned at her. Her eyes looked confused for a few seconds as she thought about it and then a small smile made her lips twitch.
“You hungry?” I asked as I opened the fridge. “You want me to make you something?”
“Oh no.” She shook her head quickly. “I was just thinking of making some hot chocolate or something.”
“That sounds good.” I looked down into her dark brown eyes. This woman was absolutely stunning and I needed her to leave immediately. The last thing I needed right now was a distraction. Especially with a city chick from New York. Especially when said chick was my brother’s fiance’s best friend. That was just asking for trouble. You don’t shit where you eat. Even dogs know that. And I wasn’t a dog. At least only two women in my life had called me that and I thoroughly blamed both of them for being upset when our dalliances had ended. “You want to go riding in the morning?” The words slipped out as if someone else had taken over my body.
“Uhm…” She pressed her lips together. “Sure?”
“I mean, I’ll make the hot chocolate now and maybe some smores and then we can go riding tomorrow.”
“I mean, sure, okay. I’m not sure how the two fit together, but that sounds good.”
“How are you liking Montana so far?” I asked her as I grabbed a jug of milk. “Will you grab two mugs from that cupboard?” I pointed to a cupboard next to the stovetop. “You can drink regular whole milk, right”
“Yes.” She nodded as she grabbed two mugs. “Though I’d much prefer a mix of almond and oat milk, please.”
I stared at her for a few seconds raising my eyebrows as I stared at her and she started laughing. “Got ya.” She grinned as she threw her head back. The long expanse of her neck teased me and I stared at her breasts as they pressed against the thinness of the material covering them. Was she wearing a bra? I blinked twice and suddenly she was directly next to me. Her body was so close that I could feel the warmth of her skin against the hairs on mine. My body hardened as I breathed in her scent of fresh lilies. Shit, I was in big big trouble.
“So Olivia, you grew up in the City?”
“Have you ever lived anywhere else?”
“No.” She shook her head and then laughed slightly. “It never even crossed my mind to live anywhere else.”
“You love it that much huh?”
“There’s a vibrance to New York City.” She said, her eyes shining. “There’s life in every dark alley and corner.”
“Police as well, right?”
“What?” She blinked at me and shook her head. “There’s more to New York than crime.”
“Could have fooled me.” I stared at her, wanting to see a fire in her eyes.
“You watch too much TV.” She gave me a lazy smile and yawned slightly. I watched as her long dark hair moved across her face. Her twinkling brown eyes were laughing at me.
“It’s nothing like Montana.”
“You can say that again.”
“There’s nowhere like Horseshoe Ranch.” I said softly. “If you’ve ever questioned anything in your life, you can find the answers on this ranch.”
“All the answers?”
“Nothing but the answers.” I suddenly had an idea. “You want to go outside with me? I want to show you something.”
“Now?” She shook her head. “I’m not even dressed.”
“Just put on some boots.” I shrugged, suddenly feeling excited. “Are you here for an adventure or what?”
