Tala swung around as the hairs rose on her arms. "Craig?" She hadn't seen him for years, not since they'd both graduated from high school. He'd been good-looking in school, but the man he'd grown up to be took her breath away.
His mop of sandy blond hair ruffled in the breeze and reminded her of a modern-day James Dean. Tall, slightly over six feet, and lean, he lounged against the side of a candy-apple-red SUV. A black leather bomber jacket covered his upper body, pulling tight along his crossed arms. Her gaze traveled downward, taking in the faded jeans that clung to every contour of his legs, ending in black hiking-style boots.
She snapped her attention back to his face. Even though ten feet of space separated them, the laughing gray depths of his eyes pulled at her, reeling her in as an invisible thread connected them. Time rolled backward, and again she was an insecure seventeen-year-old, plagued by doubts and familial guilt. Although, back then his smile had caused her warm fuzzies. This time, it had the power to dampen her panties.
She wanted to burst into flames. "What are you doing here?"
He smiled. "Waiting for you."
