After being hit with heartbreaking tragedy, Carrie has thrown herself into a hot, secret relationship with Matt. With Christmas approaching, she realizes she might want even more from her sexy, damaged artist, but the boundaries around their relationship make anything deeper than sex impossible.
Matt was the rising star of the art world, but he hasn’t painted since a tragic accident two years ago. His passion for Carrie finally inspires him, but first he must convince her that the heat between them is far more than just sex.
“What’s so funny?” he demanded.
“Nothing. It’s just that you’re not exactly the kind of guy a girl would just dig up for an acceptable date to a family party.” Matt was more like dream-date material. She never would have had the courage to ask him out had she run into him in any normal way.
“What does that mean?” To her surprise, he actually sounded offended. “I can be an acceptable date.”
“What are you getting all grouchy about? I just meant you’re too good to be dug up from the bottom of the heap.”
“Oh.” His expression relaxed. “That’s all right then.”
She couldn’t help but giggle again at his quickly changing emotions. He was definitely an artist. “Now you’re all pleased with yourself again. I’ve never met a man with such pomposity.”
He slid his hand down her spine and kept it at the small of her back as he walked with her to the front door. “What did you say I have?”
“I’m not sure that’s really a word.”
“Of course it is. It’s the state of being pompous. Look it up. The dictionary will cross-list the word with ‘Matthew Lynch’.”
