He tightened his hold on her hand and slowly pulled until her face was inches from his. “Your heart rate just sped up and your skin is growing warmer at the thought of our lying on the grass and making love.”
She tried to keep her breathing steady. “For a businessman you have such an incredible imagination,” she finally forced out.
He smiled. “Is it? Think about it, Kelly—the two of us lying down here on incredibly thick grass, my slipping off your clothes, you taking off mine. Our having the chance to discover what we’ve missed. While moonlight is great for making love, sunlight is much better.”
Liquid desire rushed through her veins as she visualized all he was talking about, arousing her until all she could think of was his body merging with hers. “Ben,” she managed to say, “I told you before that it’s not a good idea. I’m very confused about what’s happening between us, and I’m still trying to understand something I’ve never experienced before.”

What if you were told you only had a short time to live? What would you do? Would you worry that you not only hit your ex-husband because he deserved it, but he lost a few teeth in the process, and now he wants to sue you for damages? Any reason it should bother you if you’re going to die soon?
If you’re Kelly Andrews you’d leave Los Angeles behind and take off for a tropical island and buy a waterfront tavern because it’s the exact opposite of anything you’d be expected to do.
But hiding out isn’t all that easy to do when Australian Ben Wyatt is tracking the woman who creates hand painted silks and designs that he wants for his boutiques. The man isn’t easy to resist and seriously, who would want to.
I wanted a book with a heroine who was convinced she only had a short time to live and was determined to make the most of that time. The Elaine in the book is based on my good friend and fantastic author, Elaine Raco Chase. As always, I insert the mention of chocolate with yummy Goo Goo Clusters that are so good they’re sinful.
I wanted a heroine who finally realized hiding away wasn’t a good thing and a sexy hero who was determined she have the kind of life she deserved. Setting the story on a tropical island seemed just right and the perfect background for romance.
Sudden Impulse was one of the three Bantam Loveswepts I wrote and I hope you enjoy Kelly and Ben’s romance. It’s available at Amazon and Smashwords right now and will soon be available at Barnes & Noble for the Nook.
