EXCERPT

While he was distracted with the mess she’d made, she studied him. His dark blond hair was threaded with random streaks of silver. His normally smooth jaw was covered with thick stubble that was a few shades darker than his hair. His body was broad and muscular, but not like a bodybuilder. Softer but still powerful. She studied the colorful ink that covered his arms and disappeared under the sleeves of his t-shirt.

“I never knew for sure you had tattoos.”

“Yeah, not many people do. It’s a pain in the ass to hide them. I’m not ashamed of them, but I was a teacher, now principal of a small-town school. I don’t think many would approve. I’ve been adding steadily over the years. To be honest, I don’t have much skin left.”

“Can I get a closer look?”

He nodded without a word and walked around to stand before her. Bret held out his arms, and she briefly hesitated before she traced the lines. It was a beautiful mosaic of nature, flowers, and trees. Horses danced or reared onto their hind legs, blending into the landscape.

“I’ve always wanted to get one.”

“Why haven’t you?”

“I don’t know. Never seemed to have the time and really don’t know what I’d want.”

She stopped breathing as he removed his t-shirt. His torso was covered in blond hair that disappeared into the waistband of his jeans. The same type of scenes that matched the ones on his arms covered his ribs, and he turned to expose the designs that continued onto his back. Her hands shook as she raised them to draw her fingertips along the delicate lines and bright color.

“They’re beautiful.”

“Thank you. Years of work, but I’m not taking my pants off so you can see the rest.”

“I’d never,” she gasped.

She pushed his chest as he spun back around to face her and he chuckled.

“Maybe you’d like to go with me this summer to see about getting one yourself.”

“You’re getting more?”

“I don’t know. I’m forty-eight. I think I’m covered enough.”

“What’s your age have to do with it?”

“Nothing I guess, but I only have one calf left.”

“Really?”

“Yes, really, want to see?”

She rolled her eyes as he waggled his brows at her. “I appreciate the offer, but I’ll unfortunately have to decline. You still have your chest left.”
