Tempting Jane by Monica Burns

Tempting Jane
(The Rochester Sisterhood Series, Bk #1)
By Monica Burns


When the perfect staffing storm hits Jane Rochester’s temp agency, she winds up being Lincoln Chandler’s assistant for a week. Jane doesn’t do office romance, and her last relationship was one-sided. But one hot kiss from Lincoln changes everything. Now she has to decide if it’s love at first sight or just a fiery physical attraction.

Lincoln Chandler’s been focused on building his real estate development firm into a Fortune 500 company. He wasn’t looking for a relationship—particularly when his last girlfriend married Lincoln’s biggest competitor and took proprietary information with her in the bargain. But Jane Rochester is an undeniable force of nature, and the heat between them might be more than just a few hot nights in the bedroom.

With a quick nod, Jane hurried back to the alcove outside Lincoln’s office. She set her coffee on the desk then moved quickly toward the open doorway. She’d barely had one foot over the threshold, when a hard body slammed into hers. Stumbling backward, Jane felt herself falling before strong arms wrapped around her waist. In a quick move, Lincoln turned them so they were braced against the wall that served as a break between the main administration area and the desk.

Caught between a solidly built male body and the wall, heat streaked its way through her blood as she breathed in his clean, outdoor scent. The frantic beat of her heart pounded loudly in her ears as she remained frozen against him. When he didn’t move right away, her breathing grew ragged.

“You okay?” The husky note in his voice sent a frisson dancing across her skin as she looked up into a pair of silvery-blue eyes. Every part of her was alive with sensation.

“Yes, I’m sorry—”

“Nothing to be sorry about. I shouldn’t have come barreling out of the office like that. I’m just glad you didn’t end up on the floor.”

When he didn’t, move, Jane’s heartbeat increased its pace like an out-of-control train heading for derailment. Something fiery flashed in his gaze as she wet her dry lips. The heat scraping across her senses left her feeling raw and exposed in a way that wasn’t unpleasant, but it was definitely unsettling. Her breathing became ragged as his head dropped slightly.

Oh God, he was going to kiss her. The moment the thought penetrated her consciousness, she instantly knew she wanted him to. Anticipation flooded her body as she drew in a sharp breath. A moment later her body screamed its objection as Lincoln pushed himself away from her until they were an arm’s length apart. The instant his heat left her body, Jane found herself wishing he hadn’t moved.
