Book Blurb: Sometimes to understand the present you have to conjure up the past...

The last thing Addison Harmon needed was to become tethered to the broody, often seemingly cold, Theo Van Rooyen, but that's exactly what happened.

Forced to partner up with Theo to figure out a way to break the tether, Addison soon realizes she may have bitten off more than she can chew

Excerpt: I led Theo across the hall and into the bathroom with the largest tub. He wasted no time in turning on the water and stopping up the drain. Once the bath had filled a little, he tossed the sachet of ingredients in. In a matter of minutes, warm steam filled the room, which wafted the scent of the recipes he’d created through the air and straight to my nose. I realized then that the sprig I’d smelled earlier was the almost licorice-like scent of basil. I watched as Theo stirred the water with his dark fingers, mixing the ingredients well. He stood, letting the tub continue to fill, and began to peel off his white tank top.
“Oh, God, wait a minute! Let me leave if you’re gonna strip and get in.” I bolted for the door, my hands covering my eyes like blinders, but Theo caught one of my arms. Warmth licked around the area where he touched me.
“You have to stay,” he said, giving me a smoldering look as he released his grip on my arm and tossed his tank top to the floor. “We have to do this together since the tether is on both of us.”
My cheeks flushed as I tried to look anywhere besides the sculpted muscles that made up his dark stomach and chest. “I was afraid of that.”
Theo reached for the button on his low-hung jeans and undid it as he slipped out of his sandals. “This is nothing sexual, don’t worry. I wouldn’t try anything with you.” The way he said it—like it was a joke for him to be attracted to me in any way—stung more than I liked to admit. “But you have to undress too and sit in the tub with me for at least twenty minutes.”
My heart was going to explode. I didn’t think I’d ever sat in a bathtub with a naked man for twenty minutes before. Ever. And most definitely not with one who seemed so unattracted to me.
This was going to be the most embarrassing moment of my life.
Theo’s pants hit the floor and I averted my eyes away from him standing before me in nothing besides his navy blue boxer briefs. Kace popped in my head. I prayed he would never find out about this moment, because there was no way to explain this and have it not sound like cheating.
“I’ll leave these on…just because. You leave yours on too,” he instructed and then I heard him cut the water off and a slight splashing as he climbed in.
I took in a deep breath and tugged my shirt over my head. After tossing it on the floor, I pulled my shorts down and slipped out. Wearing only my bra and panties, I climbed into the water with Theo.
