Book Description: She seemed far beyond his reach…could love draw them together?
For years shy animator Nathan has carried a torch for Brooke, the beautiful and dynamic Director of Development at their animation studio, even creating B-Girl, a comic-book heroine in her likeness. When a new project throws the two of them together, lovestruck Nathan finally seizes his moment – only to find Arnauld, head of the animation studio, claiming exclusive rights to Brooke’s affections.
But Nathan, it turns out, is not giving up on his dreams so easily. With inspired determination, he sets out to be the super hero of wooing his girl. Threatened by his persistence, Arnauld plays dirty – only to spark an uprising at the studio that unleashes the sort of havoc only a building full of frustrated animators can create. While Nathan pulls out all the stops to win his B-girl, Brooke has to choose. Should she pursue the sparkling career that has taken her years to build…or follow her heart?
The sun’s low in the sky as I stride up to my Wonder Woman waiting in her home's open doorway. It takes my complete focus to maintain my Indiana Jones bravado when all I want to do is stop and bask in her super hero glory. From her majestic gold headpiece, all the way down to her sexy boots, she is everything I'd hoped for and more. With great concentration I manage to carry off my swagger as I move close to her.
"Hey, Wonder Woman," I say in a low voice, tipping my hat. "You're looking mighty fine."
Wow, the way she’s lookings at me…it’s kind of wild…
"Indiana," she says in a low seductive voice. "I always knew some day you'd come walking back through my door." She reaches out and runs her fingers along the edge of my shirt. "You have no idea how long I've waited for you."
There's so much pent up desire fueled by our private fantasies that between the flush moving across her chest, and the way she's gazing at me, I can tell she's excited already. I sweep her into my arms and kiss her with everything I’ve got. My hat falls off my head and tumbles to the ground. Moments later, we’re grinding together against her door jamb, not even caring who might pass by and see us. At this point I just want to make love to her until she sees stars.
When I grope her breast over her costume, and bite her neck, she gasps, "Let's go inside." I kick the door wide open and carry her towards her living room. I feel this unbelievable surge of adrenaline…I am Indiana Jones, sweaty and rugged, ready to take my woman!
