Alex Mathews is a New York businessman who has a “work hard, play hard” mentality and considers women as a means to an end. But Libby Stewart, a beautiful hotel manager in Scotland, manages to do the impossible: steal Alex’s heart and turn his world upside down. With an ocean separating them, Alex arranges for Libby to visit him in the States for a long weekend…but things don’t go quite as planned.
Sparks fly when Alex’s old friend enters the picture and one of Alex’s business rivals shows an unsolicited interest in Libby. Tensions reach an all-time high when the four of them are thrown together during an engagement party. But it’s a series of passionate trysts and shocking betrayals that leaves Alex and Libby wondering if their love was truly meant to be. Can they learn to trust? Or will the sea between them prove to be too much to overcome? The second book in the Captured series, He’s Captured My Trust is a whirlwind romance—filled with jealousy and desire as two star-crossed lovers struggle to make their relationship work.
It doesn’t take as long as I thought it would to get through security, and before I know it, I sense his eyes burning through me, awaking all my senses. I scan the area quickly, and it’s not long before I find those burning brown eyes. Alex is here. James is still by my side, talking, but I have switched off. My focus is on one person and one person only.
Our eyes connect. The slow smile spreads across his beautiful face. My breathing changes, and my heart is racing—racing straight toward the tall, handsome man I’ve not seen in four weeks. He still looks hot, if not hotter than I remember. He’s come straight from a meeting to pick me up, very much the important businessman. Reminds me of my first encounter with him. He’s wearing the same suit, if I’m not mistaken.
I try to concentrate on bringing my breathing back under control, which is a hard task. I take deep breaths to get some much-needed oxygen back into my lungs, but that’s not the only problem I’m having at the moment. No, there’s the blazing heat spreading through my body that has every nerve ending standing to attention, and there is only one cure for that. I don’t know why I’m so surprised at my reaction to Alex. Burning desire. I want him and I need him, badly.
The smile on his face has reached those beautiful brown eyes as I walk toward him—those eyes, which have followed me intensely, moving the distance across the arrival gate. He starts closing the distance between us at a leisurely pace.
Then he is right in front of me. I take my hand off my case handle. My hand shakes slightly as I bring it up to his face, desperate to feel his warm skin. But it’s too late: he’s picked me up, right here in the middle of the airport. I am so glad I’m wearing jeans as he swings me around. I throw my arms around his neck.
