Shortly before noon, Chase followed the signs in the administration portion of the resort and entered the front office of purchasing. The desk was empty, glass doors to the left was posted for employees only and the door behind the desk was wide. He was about to enter the office when a movement behind the desk caught his attention. He looked down to see a pair of sapphire blue eyes peering through lenses up at him seconds before she bounced to her feet, dusting off the suit skirt. âI am so sorry,â she glanced around the desk. âAre you here for an appointment? I canât seem to locate my calendarâ¦thought it might have slipped under the deskâ¦â She thrust her palm out and brought out a bright smile. âPepper Ambrose.â âChase Montgomery,â he returned, enveloping the smaller palm with his. âI donât have an appointment, so itâs alright.â He watched relief flood through her seconds before she collapsed into the chair behind her, the chiming of the phone making her groan and hold up one finger. Pepper tapped the speaker button, her head down on the desk. âPurchasing.â âYou sound like youâre in a tunnel,â came the soft feminine voice through the phone lines. âAdrianaâ¦â Pepperâs head came up. âPleaseâ¦pleaseâ¦â âYou scared the crap out of the last one, Pepper,â she scolded mildly. âOhâ¦poor little girlâ¦because I insisted she learn how to tell time? I was patient, Adriana. The first dayâ¦it was the traffic coming up from Stellacomb. Oh, and the next day it was all that pesky rain on the highway. My all time favorite was being out celebrating having a job and missed the alarm going off,â she concluded in a low growl. âOkay, so sheâs not a day personâ¦and definitely notâ¦â Adriana Styles Blackhawk cleared her throat. âIâm sending you someone on Monday.â âReally?â âYouâve got a suspicious nature, Pepper. Yesâ¦have something to write on?â Blue eyes grabbed the memo cube and pulled drawers open, searching until she saw the hand come out with a slim gold pen offered to her. âThank youâ¦ready, Adrianaâ¦.â âLouisa Hunt. Sheâs British, married to an Air Force guy at McChord. She worked in requisitions with the British Military and Iâm shooting all the particulars to your email. Iâve talked to Abby and itâs cleared.â âI promise to be patientâ¦thank you.â âMy pleasure. The resort is one of my biggest clients,â she paused. âI honestly donât think youâll have a problem with this one, Pepper. Sheâs older and professional. Gina is a little new at placement and Trinity was not a good fit for you.â âIâm sure youâll have her trained in no time,â Pepper said warmly. âThanks, Adriana, Iâll check my mail. Bye.â She printed out a date on the note and looked up with a bright smile. âThank you.â âThat seems to have brightened your mood considerably.â Chase commented, sliding the pen back into his pocket. âItâs the little things, you knowâ¦â she stood up and went into her office. âPlease, come inâ¦but if we didnât have an appointmentâ¦are you selling something? Orâ¦Iâm sorry, are you looking for someone else? I can call to the back and let them knowâ¦â âActually, Iâm here to speak with you. About lunch.â He told her simply, his gaze casually sweeping around the large uncluttered office. Nothing personal on her desk. âLunch?â Pepper frowned and leaned against her desk. âA midday meal, sometimes shared between people,â he suggested quietly. He almost laughed at the full lips that shot into a pursed frown while her gaze met his. âYou came here to ask me to lunch?â Pale lashes blinked as if processing his words. She mentally did a quick inventory and found herself caught in the stream from a pair of darkly intense brown eyes.

WindSwept Narrows: #17 Pepper Ambrose
Chase Montgomery was giving considerable thought to the clear definition of the word stalking.
And he wasn’t pleased that it fit.
Five in the afternoon and he wandered into the large employee lounge of the Windswept Narrows Resort and Casino, alert, cool brown eyes doing a master sweep of the room and landing immediately on the blonde in the window seat.
The window faced west and was flooded with late afternoon sunshine. She sat on the wide, cushioned ledge with her legs crossed beneath her, a book open on her legs and head bent. Now and then a palm rose and pushed thick, unruly long hair behind her ear.
He got his coffee and sat facing her, his laptop open and ignored. Inside environmental lights mingled with the natural and he saw colors in her hair that ranged from burnished gold to bronze to platinum to champagne. Center parted, the long hair fell well past her shoulders, tapered at the sides and ending in a waving curl in the center of her back.
He had to admit it was damn difficult to get a clear impression of the woman. Part of him wasn’t all that convinced she was very far past twenty, another point that grated. Her jeans were generally of the cargo variety and not exactly form hugging. She wore small black girl shoes with next to no heel and a thin strap....
