Sage has been working at a high-tech firm in Newport Beach, CA for over two years as the only female director among three men. She is highly valued by her boss and she loves her job, but there’s a problem – she’s totally attracted to him and the stress is killing her. She’s taking three days off for the Christmas holiday and has posted her availability online, hoping to find a job when she returns. Before she can leave, she has to find her cell phone and she doesn’t know where she left it.
She had never been any good at flirting with men, weren’t they supposed to do the flirting? She didn’t know. Good grief, what was she supposed to do? She didn’t think it would be appropriate to flirt with her boss. Was it? And why did she have to be attracted to her boss, of all people? It’s killing me!
Terrance is the founder and owner of Templeton Designs and considers Sage so valuable to the company, he can’t afford to acknowledge the feelings he has for her. He’s stuck at the company this year when normally he would be enjoying the holiday in a warm, tropical location. It may be the year he finds a way to acknowledge the woman who holds his heart captive.
He’d been on his best behavior for two years. From the moment he laid eyes on Sage Hendon, he’d had to control the heat coursing through him whenever they were in the same room. Her pale skin against her bouncing auburn curls made him ache to touch her. He was used to women coming on to him at the office, but Sage wasn’t one of them. Always the professional, she never cracked, never crossed over the line. He had caught her looking at him, a wistful expression on her face, but she always dropped her eyes before he could see what they might reveal. There was something between them, but he couldn’t be sure.
