âClimb gates around here often?â he asked, no censure in his voice. I realized he spoke English as fluently as he spoke Spanish.
He was clad in navy basketball shorts, a pair of Nike running shoes and he was just sweaty enough for me to realize heâd likely been working out. I swear I was hypnotized by all of his exposed skin, so much so that I could just about remember my own name at that moment. Iâd have blamed the fall for my dazed and confused frame of mind but that wasnât it at all. It was purely because of himâthe sexy Spanish-speaking god whoâd saved me from certain harm. My eyes trailed along his muscular but lean body hungrily as I catalogued just how ridiculously gorgeous he was. I was hypnotized by his six-pack and the set of V-cut muscles I had an insane urge to trail my fingers over.
Iâd have kept right on staring had he not cleared his throat. I cringed as I came back to reality and realized heâd asked a question I hadnât retained.
âUm, huh?â I asked, perfectly clueless.
âI was asking if youâre a professional gate climber,â he said huskily.
âSheâs really fine after a fall from that height?â the officer asked as he came through the gate.
âShe never hit the ground,â my savior said, âsince I caught her.â
The cop looked almost as impressed as I felt. Iâd have heaped praised onto the stranger who saved me had I not remembered that I needed to be focused on a more pressing concern.
âSo now that Iâm on this side I really need to get myââ
The officer pinned me with a look that left no doubt that he was in charge. âMiss, please remain silent while I work out whatâs going on here.â
I pursed my lips and tried to contain my annoyance. I knew he was just doing his job but all I cared about was finding Elvis.
The officer turned back to the Spanish modelâI naturally assumed he modeled because he looked like he belonged in sensual looking black and white ads for menâs cologne. You know the kind of ads Iâm talking about, right? Thereâs always a sexy guy giving you the letâs have all the sex look with a set of eyes that are clearly attempting to hypnotize you into buying something.
He was at least six feet tall and had a head full of thick, dark hair. His face was perfectly proportioned from forehead to chin, and I could find nothing that didn't appear to be symmetrical. He had a ridiculously sexy closely trimmed beard that I wanted to trace with my fingers and his jaw was the sexiest thing Iâd ever seen. I turned crimson when my eyes trailed up and met his and I realized he was observing meâwhich meant he knew Iâd been staring at him. Again.
I bit my lip and tried not to blush as I blinked like an idiot. I was relieved to have a reason to look to the police officer when he cleared his throat to get our attention. âAre you the one who called about the disturbance down the side of the house?â he asked.
I couldnât resist the urge to let my eyes wander back to the Spanish god. I knew just enough Spanish to determine that if his looks were rated on the salsa scale heâd be called el mÃ¡s caliente.
His eyes were on me as he answered the cop. âMy brother called, yes.â
âWhatâs your name, sir?â
Even his name was sexy. My skin felt hot and prickly under his gaze. Anxious for a reprieve, I looked back to the officer.
The cop nodded as he took note of it on his pad. âAnd your brother's name?â
âAnd you?â the cop asked with a head nod toward me.
âCan you spell that?â
âK-a-y-a,â I answered.
âThatâs a weird name,â the officer said as he wrote it down.
I wasn't sure if he was being rude or not so I shrugged and said nothing. Alejandro growled something under his breath that I couldnât understand. A shiver went down my back at the way the words rolled off his tongue. His Spanish accent fascinated me. Iâd never been one to care one way or the other about a manâs voice, but his did things to me. I wondered if audio erotica was a thing. If it were, I would pay a subscription fee to hear him talk all day.
âSo were you trying to escape or get in?â the officer asked, ruining my good fantasy about an Alejandro Cruz dirty talk subscription service.
âI was trying to get in,â I answered stiffly, annoyed that the officer had already forgotten everything Iâd said, âI told youââ
âNo, no, she is not the disturbance,â Alejandro interjected. âMy brother thought someone was trying to steal God only knows what from the exterior of the house. He was asleep and heard something outside his bedroom window and panicked. He shouldnât have called the policeâitâs animal control that we need. Some dickhead bird went through the trash that my brother forgot to secure and heâs been leading him on one hell of a chase around the yard.â
My eyes narrowed and my hands went to my hips as I stared down the model. âDonât talk about my little buddy like that,â I snapped.
