Maggie dug deep in her memory. She could only remember her search for Emma. She gasped. She remembered Emma’s disappearance. Maggie closed her eyes and attempted to force her memory for the lapse between then and now.
“My fair lady is awake?”
Maggie heard his voice. The same one she’d heard earlier.
Did he just call me a fair lady?
She dared to open her eyes, part of her felt like a lost child; scared and alone. She felt a presence close to her. She could smell his scent. It teased her senses. She could no longer resist. She had to look. She opened her eyes slowly. His scent wasn’t the only pleasure she experienced. The ultimate of tall, dark and handsome stood before her. It wasn’t his greener-than-green eyes or long-dark lashes that caught her attention, but the way she felt he delved into her soul with his eyes. She felt a quick pierce to her heart. Never before had a man looked at her that way. His strong jawline curved a clean-shaven face. Her eyes focused on his lips as they parted. A sudden urge to kiss him overcame her sensible way of thinking. But the sudden thought to move only made her head hurt. She flinched and swallowed hard. No man had ever had such an impact on her.
If this is love at first sight, then I’ve been wrong—so wrong.
