She shifted her gaze to the driver of the other car. He stepped out and her eyes widened, taking in the size of the stranger. She couldn't imagine how he had gotten his large frame into such a small space. He stood more than six feet with the widest set of shoulders she'd ever seen on a man. His wavy black hair hung low across his forehead and reached past the collar of his blue shirt. The dark jacket fit his broad chest snugly, tapering down across his narrow hips and thighs.
As the man looked toward her, Shanna felt the air leave her lungs with a gasp. He was a definite hunk. His blue eyes, veiled by thick black lashes, slowly inspected the damage on the cars. Instead of seeing anger on his face, she noticed a smile lifting his smooth lips over something Robert said to him. The amused grin brought a sudden fluttering sensation racing through her chest and she couldn't explain it. She'd never felt this way before, even with Robert.
When the stranger started walking toward the passenger side of Robert's car, Shanna sucked in her breath and held it. Slowly, it left her body with a deep shuddering sigh. She rolled down the window and waited anxiously for his arrival. Reaching her, he placed his large hands on the metal frame.
"Are you all right?" he asked in a husky tone, leaning his head into the opening and grinning.
On closer inspection, she saw how dimples sliced deeply along his cheeks. The sensuous sound of his voice sent tingles racing through her body. Never had she heard such a sexy tone coming from another person. She sniffed the air in appreciation, loving the pleasing scent of shaving lotion drifting in to her. "Yes, I'm fine." Suddenly, she felt all giddy as a foolish feeling washed over her at the way her heart rate speeded up over the encounter. She silently wondered if he could hear it. Of course, he couldn't hear it, but this didn't stop the embarrassment she felt over her reaction to him.
