She blew out a breath and faced him. The want and desire built a fortress in her chest, ready to take charge. Yet, the fact that woman said they were engaged gave her pause. He was impossible to refuse. “Okay.”

“What do I do with the mutt, sir?” Niles asked

“Good question. I haven’t the foggiest idea. I told her to leave.”

Muriel must be Mutt, she imagined. “What about calling the police?”

“No, she’s pissy that I don’t jump to attention when she barks,” Ryan said.

Emma cleared her throat. “Well, if she’s your fiancée, then she has certain rights.”

He stared as if she’d grown two heads. “I’m not engaged.”

“Oh...uh, it takes time getting used to a broken engagement.” Her voice faded from the disappointment that he not only was engaged, but he lied.

Ryan closed the distance between them, spun her on the bar stool, and placed a hand on each side of her face. “I’m not engaged to her or anyone, never have been. I certainly wouldn’t be able to do this, if I were.” His lips found hers, breaking off his words.

This time, the kiss didn’t catch her off guard. As freaked out as the situation made her, she responded and sucked on his lower lip. His tongue traced her lips and she parted for him to slip inside. He felt good, more than good. The man knew how to kiss.

A few seconds later, they pulled apart. He looked shell-shocked and rubbed his lips together and slid his hand through his hair. “I’ll see you at six.”

“The mutt, sir?” Niles called after him.

“I don’t care what you do with her; get her out of my home.” Ryan exited the kitchen door, avoiding said mutt.
