“Thank you for trying to make tonight enjoyable. I’ve been dreading it.”
“I don’t blame you.” I tap her nose. “But I’m determined to make sure you have a good time.” And people are more likely to believe we’re a couple if we seem not to have a care in the world.
We bop our way through a Black-Eyed Peas’ party song and get a little cheeky when Walk the Moon echoes what I’m thinking with “Shut Up and Dance.” Then the deejay slows things down a little with Stevie Wonder’s “Isn’t She Lovely?”
“You really can dance.” Skye sounds surprised. “You actually make me look halfway decent.”
“You’re doing great. Are you having a good time now?”
“Yeah.” She flashes me the first genuine smile I’ve seen all day. “Thanks.”
“You keep thanking me. You don’t have to.”
“Without you, I would have come to this thing alone, and Sherry would have been all over me.”
The woman would have browbeat her, and Skye is too polite to tell her to shove it up her ass and let her son live his own life.
The song changes again, and Bruno Mars croons, “I think I wanna marry you…”
I can’t resist stroking her cheek. “I’m happy we’re here together.”
But what will happen when this wedding is over? When I have to return Mr. Chang’s call? When I decide my future and leave the island, probably for good? If I want to test the possibility there’s something lasting between us, I have to make a move. Otherwise, Skye will always think I’m acting.
“I’m happy we’re here together, too.” Her words are soft and heartfelt.
So I swallow—and go for broke. “Have you figured out yet that I’m genuinely interested in you?”
Her startled gaze jerks up to meet my stare. “It’s not a show?”
“Honey, I’m a good liar…but not that good. I was interested the minute I saw you in my living room fluffing pillows and talking on the phone.”
I don’t know why she’s shocked. “Really. You’re beautiful and sweet and funny. You care about the feelings of the people around you. It would have been perfectly normal for you to want my help so you wouldn’t have to deal with Sherry anymore. Instead, you were more concerned about Finn and his parents accepting Dana into their family. Where I come from, people are always looking to extract something from others—power, money, access, knowledge—you name it. You’re going way out of your way just to help a friend.”
“So…you didn’t agree to be my fiancé for the night for the massages?”
“No. They’re damn nice, and I’ll take them, but…”
“And you didn’t do it to avoid dealing with your own problems?”
“It started that way, but every moment I’ve spent with you since has been about you. Only you. What I’m feeling is real. I want you way more than I want to fool the people around us. I want you tonight, tomorrow…” I hold her closer, stare into her wide brown eyes. “I want to see about the future.”
And there’s Bruno Mars again, singing about getting married.
“Please tell me you want that, too,” I whisper.
Her fingers tighten on my shoulders as she seems to fall deep into my gaze. “I do.”
Thank fuck. “Good. Are we done here? Can I take you home now?”
“Please,” she whispers.
I swoop down for a kiss, ply her lips with passion, before I force myself to pull back. “Can I take you to bed? Make love to you?”
She bites her lip.



From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Shayla Black comes a new story in her More Than Words series…

Can I convince her our hot but temporary engagement should last forever?

I’m Stephen Lund, confirmed bachelor…and son of a successful billionaire whose sins I can’t forget—or forgive. Though he insisted I get over his transgressions, I can’t. So I put space between us with a temporary getaway to Maui. My rental’s sexy caretaker, Skye Ingram, is a beautiful distraction. Yeah, it’s a terrible time to start a fling, but I can’t help wanting to give her every bit of pleasure she’s willing to take.

When Skye needs a date to her ex-boyfriend’s wedding, I’m game to play her pretend fiancé. The jerk should see what he passed up…and that I’m holding her now. But our pretend engagement begins to feel real. Our passion certainly is. So are the consequences. When I’m confronted with the reality that our lives are now irrevocably entwined, I have to choose between leaving Skye to return to the life—and wealth—I’ve always known or abandoning everything familiar to start over with the woman who awakened my heart.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**
