Love in the Conch Republic
By: Leah Miles

“Thanks for the water. It’s getting pretty hot out there.” She uncapped her bottle. “You know? I have to say Al was right.”

“Right about what?” Dan watched as she closed her eyes and rolled the water bottle down her neck, leaving a trail of moisture behind. He licked his lips, watching those droplets slide down her smooth skin.

“We finished the deliveries almost an hour faster than my average last year.” She opened her eyes and snickered. “Also, Al’s plan for you to wear one of the new shirts was genius. That woman in the blue bikini almost followed you back to the truck. And those old ladies from the third stop? They flat-out asked me if I thought you’d come back and give them a ‘beach tour’.”

He barked a laugh, feeling better than he had in days. “I’m just a piece of meat. Well, it’s nice to be good for something.”

As he pulled the truck out into the busy morning traffic, he glanced over to find her watching him, and the zing of desire which shot through him was surprising and inappropriate. Even if she’d been interested, which she wasn’t. He was her employer. Wasn’t he? He did own half of the 1822.
