Robyn Carr Quote

She could feel Cameron move up behind her; the warmth of his body was right there, though he didn’t touch her. Then one hand caressed her upper arm while the other pulled her hair away from her ear. This is the first time I’ve ever driven two hundred miles to see a woman I’ve barely met, Vanessa, he whispered. Vanni bit on her lower lip. She’d been sleepless last night, thinking. She knew Cameron was interested in her, but that wasn’t enough. Her mind was on Paul. She turned around. I’m very vulnerable, Cameron, she said by way of warning. I know. I’ll treat you carefully. You’re going to have to treat me patiently, she said. I’m not prepared to be any more than friends right now. He laughed and shook his head. I’d sure like to see where this could go. Friends, she said. Or nothing at all. He cocked his head and smiled. Do friends kiss? Just to see if there’s…chemistry? She shook her head. They do not. Not yet. Yet is a much more encouraging response than nothing at all. I guess friends kiss when they’ve gotten to know each other and there’s trust. Do I have that right? She sighed deeply. If not for Paul, she might be attracted to Cameron. He was handsome, sexy, sweet. It’s too soon. My mother-in-law jumped the gun, introducing us and— Nah, it’s not Carol’s fault. I’m jumping the gun because… He shrugged. Because you’re beautiful and fun. So shoot me. She smiled at him. I don’t think your life is in danger for calling me beautiful and fun. That’s very nice. But I’m not getting involved with you right now. You said we’d be friends, he argued. And he reached out to stroke her hair. Behave like a friend, Cameron. Like a Boy Scout. He laughed at her. You’re asking way too much. I’ll behave, but let’s keep this in perspective. I’m a man. You’re a damn sexy woman. Do I have to worry you won’t mind your manners? she asked, lifting a brow. Absolutely not, he promised. You’re in charge. Then no touching until… No touching. He put his hands in his pockets. Whatever you want, Vanessa. I’m just going to— At that very moment, Plenty whinnied, backed away from the stream and bolted. Shoot! Vanni said. That little troublemaker. She pushed Cameron away, grabbed the reins of the gelding, leaped into the saddle and said, I’ll be back. She directed her horse after Plenty. Don’t go away, she yelled, laughing, as if he could go anywhere, stranded as he was.
