His Holiday Gift by Reese Ryan
Pleasure Cove’s prodigal son just got the ultimate Christmas surprise—Madison, his five-year-old daughter he knew nothing about. Maddie’s aunt, Mikayla Mitchell, was once one of Dash Williams’s best friends…and his secret admirer. Now, seeing the sexy, ambitious lawyer with his little girl, Mikayla’s more smitten than ever.

“Be straight with me.” Dash stepped toward her. “Why the sudden need to leave?”
“You really are oblivious, aren’t you?” She wished she could take the words back as soon as she’d uttered them.
His eyes sparked with recognition. “You overheard us talking.”
“Yes.” She’d showed her hand. Might as well own it. “I heard Kendra say she thought I was in love with you. So I turned around and came back to my room.”
Dash rubbed his forehead. “Is it true?”
“Get over yourself.” She forced an incredulous laugh, her heart racing. “It was a teenage crush. Ancient history.”
The corner of his sensuous mouth curved in a grin that did things to her. Made her want to do things to him. “If it’s ancient history, why’d you kiss me last night?”
“I didn’t.” Her cheeks stung with heat and her defiance faltered. “You kissed me.”
“It was definitely a two-person operation.” He stepped closer, leaving little space between them. “Don’t recall you complaining about it.”
“God, I forgot what an arrogant ass you can be sometimes.” She shoved her hands into the solid wall of his muscular chest.
He didn’t budge.
The arrogant son of a bitch smirked. Which only made her angrier. And more turned on.
Seriously, does he live in the gym?
Her hands had a mind of their own. They remained planted on his chest as she raised her eyes to meet his.
Dash dropped his gaze to her mouth and leaned in, his heartbeat thundering against her palms. Heat radiated off his skin, suffocating her. Each breath took more effort than the last. She needed space and a fresh supply of air, absent his clean, citrus scent that made her want to plant hot kisses on his neck and chest, working her way down until…
No. Stop it. Stay strong.
Mikayla dropped her hands from his chest. “If you expect me to fall into your arms and confess my undying love, you bought tickets to the wrong show, pal, because—”
He cradled her face in his strong hands and captured her mouth in a kiss, silencing her protest.
Dash Williams had a lot of damned nerve.
She had every intention of telling him that, but he was an amazing kisser.
