Though gorgeous, she held herself as straight as a ruler. Such a precise posture hinted at military uniformity rather than the typical student slouch. Hadn’t Scott mentioned one of his book vendors being the daughter of a Marine? If this was her, she’d be gone by the end of the afternoon. A sense of disappointment settled over him, and he wanted to kick himself.“Is he expecting you?”“Yes, sir. I have an appointment.”“Don’t refer to me as sir. Please, call me Brennan.” Sir. Yep, must be a military brat. He waited a few beats, but she volunteered nothing, not even her name. “And you are?”“Lynea Kreig.” She pronounced her first name as Lynn-nay-ah.“Well, Lynea, why don’t I escort you to his office?” Brennan stood but paid more attention to this strange woman than where to place his feet. As a result, he bumped hard into the corner of his desk. His coffee cup sprang out of his grip, dislodging the lid. Boiling liquid splattered down his front.The plastic mug ping-ponged across the room, and embarrassed, Brennan leapt after it. He didn’t notice Lynea diving toward him until it was too late to halt their collision. The impact of their skulls stunned him, and he found himself in a heap on his parquet floor. He cursed his natural clumsiness. Lynea sat three feet away caressing her forehead.“Hope I didn’t give you a concussion,” he joked, pushing himself into an upright position.Lynea dropped her hand and watched him, unspeaking. Did he hit her harder than he thought? Her features had a different cast now. They’d become more transparent. Less rigid. Her extraordinary eyes sparkled despite their bemusement. The idea of getting to know her better ensnared him in its alluring grip. The barest hint of a smile played around her mouth, making him think reckless thoughts. What would she do if he kissed her right now? Belt him or lean in and enjoy it?
