In this excerpt, Julianna has stayed overnight with Buck because someone broke into her apartment and trashed it.
Her voice trailed off as Buck stood up, and she made no protest when brawny, sunburned arms enclosed her and held her tight. He nuzzled his face against her neck, and Julianna quivered in his arms.
"You smell sexy," Buck growled. "I couldn’t sleep last night because I swear I could smell you in the other bed."
He buried one big hand in her tousled curls, and his lips, heavy and warm, pressed themselves against hers.
With a strangled moan, Julianna threw her arms around him and eagerly returned his kiss.
