That
wasn't
so
bad.

I
walked
out
of
the
airport
with
Rock
into
a
steaming
heat.


Welcome
to
Venice
in
July.


Wow.
It's
a
lot
hotter
and
muggier
than
California
this
time
of
year.

I
pushed
my
hair
back
from
my
forehead.
A
sleek
limousine
rolled
up
at
that
moment.


Here's
our
ride.
After
you,
Ms.
Pate.

Rock
winked
at
me,
sending
heat
to
my
toes
as
he
guided
me
toward
the
limo,
a
hand
at
the
small
of
my
back.
A
porter
had
our
bags
and
stowed
them.


Mr.
Weldon.
I
trust
your
trip
was
pleasant.

The
heavily
accented
driver
came
around
and
opened
the
door
for
us.


Spectacular.
But
I'm
starving,
Luigi.
Could
you
take
us
to
Gino's?
Are
you
hungry?
” h
e
asked
me.


Famished.
I
hardly
ate
on
the
plane.

I'd
been
too
occupied
with...other
things.


And
Luigi,
this
is
Ms.
Pate.
She's
my
new
bookkeeper.

Luigi
nodded
respectfully.

Pleased
to
meet
you.
Welcome
to
Venezia,
m
iss.


Thank
you.

Luigi
closed
the
door
gently.
A
moment
later,
we
pulled
out
into
mild
traffic.


Wow.
I
had
no
idea
what
to
expect.
I
thought
there'd
be
more
people.

Rock
shrugged,
leaning
against
the
window,
staring
out.

More
than
usual
since
it's
summer
but
Venice
is
nice
and
quiet.
That's
part
of
its
charm.

I
smiled
at
him.
The
look
of
worry
had
settled
back
over
his
features.

It's
going
to
be
okay,
Rock.

He
pursed
his
lips.

I
don't
know
about
that.
And
call
me
Mr.
Weldon
for
tonight...until
all
hell
breaks
loose
with
the
announcement
of
our,

he
paused
for
emphasis,

engagement.

Heat
rose
in
my
cheeks.

Of
course.

The
familiarity
I'd
enjoyed
with
him
on
the
plane
had
evaporated
upon
our
arrival.
Is
this
really
all
he
wants
from
me

a
faux
fianc
ée
and
someone
to
do
the
books?

I
took
a
deep
breath,
resigning
myself
to
the
gorgeous
view
out
the
window.
The
afternoon
sun
blazed,
and
people
walked
the
streets,
haunting
lovely
shops.
Perhaps
I'd
get
a
chance
to
see
some
of
them
myself
while
I
was
here.

Rock's
hand
on
my
thigh
brought
me
back
to
myself.

At
least
there
were
no
paparazzi
at
the
airport.
They're
not
so
bad
here,
but
they'll
spot
us
soon
enough.

He
grimaced.

I
have
a
nice,
private
room
at
the
restaurant,
though,
as
usual.


Oh.

The
thought
took
my
breath
away.
Wine,
pasta...and
Rock
were
on
the
menu,
maybe.

His
hand
slid
up
my
dress
farther,
and
heat
pooled
between
my
legs.

We're
almost
there.
Pity.

He
pressed
a
button.

Luigi,
please
drive
around
the
block
a
couple
times.
Ms.
Pate
and
I
would
like
to
take
in
the
sights.


Of
course,
sir.

My
breath
caught.
Did
this
man
ever
get
enough?
I
knew
I
didn't,
not
of
him.


We're
passing
the
Piazza
de
San
Marco.
We'll
see
it
tomorrow
if
you'd
like.

I
nodded,
my
pulse
hammering
as
street
lights
reflected
in
his
dark
eyes.

I'd
like
that.


There's
no
place
like
Venice.
I
love
the
history
here
and
the
way
the
city
smells...and
its
romance.

His
voice
was
a
seductive
whisper
now,
and
I
broke
into
chill
bumps.

The
limo
rolled
to
a
stop
a
moment
later.
Luigi
came
around
and
let
me
out.
Rock
took
my
arm
after
he'd
climbed
out
as
well.

Here's
Gino's.
Best
food
in
Venice,
or
close
to
it.

The
melancholy
music
of
a
violin
floated
down
the
street
toward
them,
and
for
a
moment,
a
pang
of
longing
for
home
ripped
through
me.
