Taryn Davies was pleased with the results of her meeting with Beowulf, the owner of Wulf’s Den. She had high hopes he would be placing an order for her White Zinfandel wine in the not too distant future. If he did, then a lot of her financial problems would be over.
After her uncle had died and left the vineyard for her to run on her own, Taryn had been a little surprised to see how much in debt he’d been. She wasn’t by any means strapped for money, but it would be a little tight if she couldn’t drum up a few more clients. Wulf’s Den had been number one on her list. The night club had been around for years, and was reputed to be one of San Francisco’s hot spots in the club scene.
Lost in her own thoughts, Taryn at first didn’t notice she was being followed. Hoping it was just someone who happened to be walking in the same direction as she, Taryn quickened her pace as she headed for the parking lot behind Wulf’s Den. The footsteps coming behind her kept pace.
Before she could reach her car, the person called out to her. She turned around and she found herself face-to-face with the most gorgeous man she’d ever seen. Actually, he was the second gorgeous man she’d seen that evening, if she counted Beowulf, who was similar in looks, but this man appealed to her senses more.
As he stood before her, staring at her with stark longing in his ice-blue eyes, Taryn took the opportunity to get a better look at him. He was tall, probably close to six-foot-seven in her estimation. At five-foot-eight, she still had to crane her neck to look him in the face. And his was all planes and angles. His chestnut, shoulder-length hair only added to his good-looks. She dropped her gaze and couldn’t help but notice he was built. Her uncle would have said this guy was built like a brick shithouse. He wore a tight, black t-shirt, which showed off his broad, well-muscled chest and arms that bulged in all the right places. Her mouth went dry as her gaze moved down farther still. There was a telltale bulge in his tight-fitting jeans as well.
Taryn jerked her gaze back up to his face, and asked, “Can I help you?”
He took a step closer, and her heart beat a little faster. There was something about him, about the way he looked at her that caused her body to stand up and take notice. She was getting more turned-on the longer he stared at her.
“You already have. Come back into the club with me and you’ll help me even more.”
His voice was deep and seemed to hit a chord deep inside her. Taryn swallowed. “Ah, okay. Do you work at the club? I didn’t see you in there.”
She had no idea where he was going with that one. She didn’t think he was hitting on her. Guys as good looking as he didn’t usually hit on her. She was passable in the looks department, but there wasn’t really anything about her that made her stand out. With her long, brown hair, which she mostly kept pulled back in a ponytail, and her brown eyes, she thought of herself as mousy in appearance.
“Yes. My name is Wade. I was down in the cellar when you had your meeting with my brother.”
That explained why Wade looked so much like Beowulf. It was obvious good looks ran in the family. Taryn stuck out her hand. “Nice to meet you. I hope your brother and I can do business together.”
Wade took it, but instead of shaking it, he pulled her closer. Before she realized his intent, he bent his head and claimed her lips in a searing kiss. And he didn’t just kiss her, he devoured her. His tongue pushed past her lips and tangled with hers. Desire slammed into her, causing an ache to build between her legs as her pussy grew wet. Taryn knew she was acting like an idiot for allowing him to kiss her. She usually didn’t make it a practice to get this close to a guy she’d only met just seconds before. She hadn’t even told him her name, and here she was swapping spit with him. And if that wasn’t bad enough, she didn’t want him to stop.
That soon changed when Wade took on the dominant role and wrapped his arms around her. He held her tightly as he ground his erection against her. With images of the ugly part of her past flashing through her mind, Taryn whimpered and pushed at his chest. When he didn’t release her, she acted on instinct.
Using all the dirty fighting skills her uncle had taught her, Taryn grabbed a fistful of Wade’s hair and pulled his mouth off hers. With the flat of her hand, she hit him in the nose. She brought her knee up and kicked him in his most vulnerable spot. He instantly let go of her and dropped to the ground as he cupped his manhood in one hand and his nose in the other.
Without looking back, Taryn quickly raced to her car. As she pulled out of the parking lot, she realized she’d just unmanned the brother of a prospective client. She guessed she wouldn’t be hearing back from Beowulf any time soon.
