Can he close the door on his past, and allow himself to love again? Will Jenna find the courage to change her destiny, open her life, and her heart?

"May I kiss you good night, Grant?"
He put an arm around her shoulder and drew her toward him.
She lifted her face, and then his warm mouth was on hers, tasting of Scotch and something that was purely him. She put a hand on the back of his neck, holding him fast and encouraging him to deepen the kiss.
He answered right away, with hot, greedy kisses that made her pulse race, her blood soar. Raking her fingers through his hair, she squirmed closer.
His lips moved from her mouth and tasted the delicate lobe of her ear, then skimmed down the length of her neck, pleasuring her even more. She captured his mouth with her own and gave as good as she got.
It was hot, passionate, and so totally unexpected that it took both of them a few moments to come to their senses.
