Delicious Delay is a classic love story with a unique twist. Rich playboy (who happens to be an Arab sheikh) gets a lesson in manners from a feisty American redhead. Sparks ignite, a meal is shared, and they fly off into the desert sunset.
So what’s special, you ask? This all happens inside a glitzy Middle Eastern airport.
Here’s a snippet:
On the brink of crossing a dangerous line, she hesitated. â€œWhat exactly do you have in mind?â€
â€œIâ€™m just giving you the opportunity to have your way with me,â€ he offered, his face the picture of innocence.
She hadnâ€™t expected that answer. â€œI donâ€™t quite follow.â€
He kicked one of his legs out and tangled it with hers. She stumbled and instinctively moved her hands forward to brace herself. Her palms flattened over his hard muscled chest when she landed.
She traced the shape of his pectorals. â€œWhat do you do all day? Work out?â€
He chuckled, the low rumble all male. â€œI have access to the best personal trainers money can buy. They help keep me honest.â€
She shook her head in disbelief as the man preened. â€œHave you heard of a concept called humility?â€
â€œItâ€™s not one of my virtues,â€ he admitted. â€œIâ€™ve never understood the point.â€
She sighed. â€œItâ€™s the polite thing to do.
He placed his forefinger under her chin and tipped her head up, his expression playful. â€œSo what is a sweet, polite, goody two shoes doing on top of me?â€
