Hot Shade by Tamara Lush - Romance>Contemporary eBook

Journalist Skylar Shaw covers a plane crash on a Florida beach that leads her to a handsome yet mysterious Italian man...and the conspiracy that threatens all he holds dear.

Romance is the last thing on reporter Skylar Shaw's mind when she covers a plane crash on a Florida beach. Her best source could be a mysterious Italian man, but he's strictly off the record—unless it involves indulging their electrifying attraction to each other. Little does Skylar know, but that crash is only the beginning.

Luca Rossi is hiding a big secret: He's a journalist, too, and his anonymous exposé on the Mafia destroyed his world. Now, after two lonely years on the run, he will do anything to possess this vulnerable American beauty. But Skylar is as relentless as the Florida glare, and the situation ignites when she reports on a gruesome murder in a swamp. Soon erotic nights will bleed into dangerous days, and nowhere will be safe from the heat.

She was persistent, and he admired that—both in a journalist and a woman. Maybe she wasn’t such an amateur. And yet, no way would Luca reveal that he’d aided the plane crash victim. He wanted publicity, and reporters, to stay as far away as possible.
Especially this gorgeous reporter.

He leaned forward and lowered his voice, acutely aware of his Italian accent. It was so different—seemed so…heavy—from her smooth American cadence that it made him feel again self-conscious. “Are you aware you are on private property? Reporters shouldn’t break the law. Our community is called The Sanctuary, and it’s gated for a reason, no? We like our privacy here.”

The girl’s face froze in an open-mouthed smile and a pink flush bloomed on her cheeks. She became even more beautiful than before.

“Oh.” She pointed at the gate with her pen then grinned sheepishly. “I just came in over there. The gate was so easy to open, I… Well, I thought I’d find more people to talk to, more sources.”

“Yes. I know,” he said, trying to contain his attraction and fighting back a grin. Her tenaciousness, her eagerness to get the story, was endearing. Waltzing into a private enclave was exactly what he would have done when he worked for the newspaper in Italy. “I saw your elegant entrance as you broke in. Now I’ll open the door out for you. I wouldn’t want to rip more of your dress off.”

Actually, ripping that gauzy dress off was exactly what he’d love to do.

He moved the few paces toward the gate. Turning the knob, he held the door open with an expectant look.

The young woman stared at him intently. She was short, and he couldn’t help but imagine how he would have to bend slightly to kiss her. Her eyes went to his bicep, to his tattoo of an Italian saying, Chi più sa, meno crede. The more one knows, the less one believes. It was his motto, his truth. His quest to know the truth about everything made his world manageable. Especially since everything had fallen apart. In that moment under the Florida sun, all he knew, all he believed, was that he wanted to spend the rest of the day and all of the night with the woman standing in front of him, even though she was everything he should run from.
