His arms held her in a vice like grip as his words slid into the space between them. “Play along with me. I’ve had a rough morning.”
“It’s about to get a whole lot rougher,” Maggie hissed as she stepped on his instep.
“Ohhhhh! That’s my favorite sister for ya.” The handsome stranger laughed and slid into a deckchair and plunked her down on his lap. His lips brushed her earlobe in a move that felt suspiciously like a kiss. A tingle rippled through her body like an ice cream soda’s fizz on a hot day.
