Adam Carlyle checked his watch and then leaned to the left, counting
the number of people in the line ahead of him. He grunted, debating
whether he should give the clerk a chance to catch up or head back to the
office and have his administrative assistant pick him up a sandwich. If he
didn’t have a taste for a New York–style hot dog, he’d step out of the line
His glance wandered around the beige walls and open space of the New
Center One building, focusing on the woman standing in line in front of
him. Nice curves, he thought, taking a more leisurely second stroll along her
frame. The blue-green suit caressed every delectable line. The jacket
hugged her waist and stroked a path along her hips.
He grinned devilishly. She had the sort of curves he liked to hold on to
while making love.
Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony chimed from the interior of the woman’s
purse. She unzipped the bag, fished inside, removed a cell phone, and
answered, “Wynn Evans.”
Suddenly, all the air gushed out of Adam’s lungs. He felt as if someone
had punched him in the chest. Adam shook his head, trying to clear his
The name bounced off the cavernous hallway, resounding loudly in his
ears. Wynn Evans.
No way. Not after all these years. Adam took a step closer, examining
her. The slim shape, height, and breadth of the woman seemed right. But he
wasn’t sure if his suspicions were correct. After all, his Wynn didn’t have a

I’ll wait until she’s done with her call and then I’ll ask her, he decided,
fighting the urge to interrupt. Instead, Adam eavesdropped on her one-sided

he’d never use anything he heard against her.
“Sounds good. How many shifts? Well, I’m on the road right now.
You’ll hear from me when I get back to the office. Great! Talk to you soon,”
she promised in a husky voice reminiscent of Kathleen Turner. Tiny shivers
danced up and down his spine as he listened to the achingly special sound
of her voice.
The woman snapped the phone shut, slipped it back inside her purse,
and took a step closer to the counter.
He had to know. Straightening the knot of his tie, Adam drew in a deep
breath and then let it out slowly before tapping the woman on the shoulder.
She turned, facing him with a polite but curious expression on her lovely
Pure joy swept through him. Wynn! A smile spread across his face. His
childhood babysitter stood in front of him.
Wynn’s beauty was timeless. A short pixie haircut replaced the long
ponytail she used to wear. Wisps of auburn hair feathered around the sides
of her oval face. One silver lock fell across her forehead while long dark
brown lashes shielded Wynn’s almond-shaped eyes. Adam’s gaze skipped
over her straight nose before moving lower, settling on her full, lush, and
kissable lips. She looked great; different, mature, but incredibly appealing
