They stabbed the air like tiny knives of arousal and she was positive that Devin had noticed. “I think I can walk now,” she said quickly.

Hardly a rescue.” A dirty look crossed his face. “I haven’t had sex in two years, Rory. Consider yourself rescued…” He turned to leave “…from me.” She was speechless. For starters, this had been the longest conversation she’d ever had with Devin Shaw and, secondly, she was positive that he wasn’t as crazy as he let everyone believe he was…
