Magic Moment - Angela Adams
When the FBI brings Laura Roberts - a quiet, reserved bookkeeper - in for questioning regarding activities at the warehouse where she works, an uneasy Laura resigns her job - only to be attacked by thugs.
Chase Donovan intends to spend a few peaceful days on his boat getting his head together - and finds a woman being assaulted by two men who say his father told them to do it.
Chase doesn't want to believe his father could hurt anyone. Laura doesn't understand why she's a target. Can they learn to work together to discover the truth - before someone dies?
Caught up their new-found passion for each other, Chase and Laura almost forget that they are on the run from some dangerous characters.
“Time for this later,” she breathed into his ear. “First, I want to see our new window.”
He rolled off her and flipped over on his back. “You sure can kill a mood.”
“I’ll be back.” She slid off the bed. “I want to see our window.”
“No, too late.” He propped himself up on elbows and looked down at his pelvis. “You ruined it.”
“I can fix that easily.”
She knelt on the window seat, staring out the casement. Chase loved hearing her say our window, jointly, together, like regular, sharing, married people. It felt right. Her divorce notion…He had gone along with her because it was the easiest thing to do. But Chase was convinced he and Laura were good for each other. He had at least nine long months to convince her.
“Chase,” she said, her voice wary.
“What? Did I forget a nut or bolt?” He swung off the bed and stood beside her.
She whirled and looked at him, her previously amused green eyes now alarmingly wide. “Chase, there’s a man watching us.”
