And it’s release day for A captivaitng touch, the prequel to the other Cavallo brothers’ series, An impossible attraction, An irresistible temptation and The ultimate surrender – all three stories are already out there.
When it comes to men, if physiotherapist Caitlin Sutherland didn’t have bad luck, she’d have no luck at all. To help cope, Caitlin blogs about the men she meets and the bad dates she’d gone on.
While on duty during the annual Wines to Whales bicycle race, a gorgeous, sweaty cyclist walks in and sets her hormones dancing. But he is Don Cavallo; one of the four Cavallo brothers — hotel tycoons, famous as much for their business skills as for the number of beauties seen on their arms.
Billionaire Don Cavallo has his own issues with the other sex. He has yet to find one who is interested in him, not his money or hotels. But when this sexy physio puts her hands on his back, she not only touches his body, but also his heart.
They’ve both been burned before, but neither of them can stop themselves from playing with fire.
But it was Don who stood there, hands in his pockets. The streetlights were bright enough for her to see him clearly.
She dropped her hands from their halfway-up position. Oh hell, what had he heard? He came closer. She swallowed.
“Where’s your girlfriend?” was the first thing that popped out of her mouth. Caitlin nearly groaned out load. She looked away and unlocked her car. “Sorry, none of my business,” she mumbled and opened the door.
“She’s just a friend.”
“Did you enjoy your date?” she asked.
He shook his head. “I was watching you the whole night.”
Stunned, she swallowed.
“And you? Did you have a nice time?” he asked.
“I…” At a complete loss, she frantically tried to think of a word, any word. Nothing came to mind. She shook her head. He’s been watching me all night?
He stepped around so the car door was between them. Her hands were resting lightly on the door, her fingers tingling. She vividly remembered how it had felt to touch him.
“Thought so.” His smile was devastating. “I’d like to take you out, Caitlin.”
“As in a date?” she asked, still stunned.
“Yes, Caitlin, as in a date.” He touched her cheek. “There is something here,” he said, and then motioned with his hand between them.
She didn’t move, just stared at him. Was he really asking her out on a date?
“I don’t know what it is, but it’s keeping me awake at night. Let’s try a date and see how we like it. Friday around seven?” he asked. “I’ll pick you up and we’ll have dinner.”
Caitlin stared at him for another minute before she was sure she could string a few words together. “Don, you…me…” She shook her head and grimaced. “We live in two completely different worlds; we have nothing in common. You are…you, the papers are full of your businesses. I’m a physiotherapist from Hermanus. I don’t think—”
“Then don’t. Think, that is.” He smiled. “You do know that you can’t believe everything you read in the papers. And I happen to like this physiotherapist from Hermanus.”
She looked at him a moment longer. This was so not what she should be doing. Hannah’s warning and her own misgivings about him swirled around in her head.
His gaze never left hers.
She was a big girl. And if she prepared herself for the worst, then surely she’d be fine.
“Where? I’ll meet you—”
“I’ll pick you up,” he said and lowered his head.
“You don’t know where I live and I always drive myself,” she managed just before his lips touched hers lightly.
