Sample text:



     Turning, I saw a man who didn’t fit my definition of a stuffy old scientist. There was no way he could be older than his late twenties, with pale amber eyes and unkempt chestnut hair. He wore a baby-blue button-up shirt, jeans, and flip-flops, which seemed to be the footwear of choice in this mountain town.

     My attraction to him was immediate, and my voice caught in my throat. I gaped at my new employer; he was beautiful in an old-fashioned way. 

     His mouth turned up into a cheeky grin, and he held his hand out to me. “Hi, I’m Owen.”

     “Liz,” I breathed out, barely above a whisper. As our hands touched, a small shock of electricity went through me.

     I’d wanted a distraction, but Owen Bennett might be a bit more than I’d bargained for.

Years ago, I vowed that I would never get involved in a relationship again.

     The last time I fell in love, I thought it would kill me.
