Excerpt:
Beacon news reporter Lindsey Fox is on the
verge of breaking a huge story of political corruption that will make her
career and make her famous journalist parents proud—or she could be thrown in
jail and fired. It really could go either way. Her recent streak of bad luck
continues when Lindsey finds herself facing a bogus contempt charge—and
attorney and former bad date Ben Gillespie is appointed to get her out of the
slammer. 
Ben can totally believe that Lindsey
is behind bars. The woman is trouble. Now he has to get his new client out of
jail, keep her out of the grasp of a shady P.I., help her save her job, and
convince her to put down the pepper spray and give him another chance.
Here’s a look at Ben and Lindsey from
A Good Kind of Trouble.
“We don’t know they’re trying to
harm me. Maybe they’re just trying to scare me.”
If so, that plan wasn’t working. From
what Ben could see, she was more determined than ever.
“Lindsey, they’ve already hurt
you,” Ben said, reaching up to trace the knot on her head. Her eyes
widened at the light touch and he had the urge to continue tracing a path down
her face, her neck, and then…
Get a grip. Kath was standing right next to
him, but still his finger and his gaze lingered on Lindsey’s face.
She pulled away first, averting her
eyes. “I doubt he meant to. Probably just wanted my bag, or something that
was in it. Or just to intimidate me.”
“Doesn’t matter, Lins. As long
as you’re on this idiot’s radar, you cannot stay at your house,” Kath
said. “At least not alone.”
Kath let that suggestion hang in the
air and excused herself to help an incoming customer, leaving Ben alone with
Lindsey amidst the lingerie.
“She’s right, Lindsey. This is
serious,” Ben said, watching Lindsey turn back to the stack of filmy
negligees. He picked up a light green silky number by the thin straps,
imagining it on Lindsey. She snatched it out of his hands and hung it up to
steam.
“It’s been serious for a long
time,” she said, whirling around, steamer in hand. “It’s been
serious, but no one believed me. I can take care of myself. I think I’ve proven
that.”
She was furious and Ben didn’t blame
her. “Of course you can. I’m not saying that. No one is. But you have
friends willing to help you.”
Lindsey set the hand steamer down.
She ran a hand through her hair, her face troubled. “I don’t want you
to—”
She met Ben’s eye and his breath
caught in his chest. God, those eyes. A man could get lost in them.
“I don’t want you to get the
wrong idea about the other night,” Lindsey said, her back stiff.
“Well, what part about that
night?” Ben asked, his own anger rising. “The part where I helped you
figure out the contracts so you could do your job? Or the part where we nearly
got naked and—”
Lindsey’s hand slapped over his mouth
quickly. “Shh!”
He grabbed Lindsey’s slender wrist
and held her hand, turning it over, kissing her wrist, but not releasing it.
“I think Kath has figured out what’s going on between us,” he said,
leaning in close to her ear.
“I don’t even know what’s going
on between us,” she protested.
He smiled. Me, either. Then he
ducked his head to kiss her, brushing his lips along her jaw, then lower,
tasting the soft skin and relishing her shiver at the contact.
“Don’t do that,” she said.
Her voice trembled, but her hands gripped his shirt and pulled him closer.
“I think I will do that,”
he said, tightening his grip on her body and taking her earlobe between his
teeth. She groaned and he pulled her around the corner to the dressing rooms,
shutting a door behind them.
