He narrowed his eyes. "Do you think I murdered the woman?"
She skimmed her gaze over his face before shaking her head 'no.' Instinct told her to trust him and she'd always been one to act on gut feelings. "Someone did and he couldn't have gotten far if you didn't see him running your way. He could still be here."
Standing eye-level with the center of his chest, she couldn't help but take another long look at the tanned muscles inches from her face. Sand and sea salt clung to his skin in the most tempting of places. She bit her lip, clenched her hands at her sides, and fought the urge to touch him.
"Yeah, I get that feeling, too." He looked behind him to where a steep staircase led to his home on the cliff. "I live up there—"
"I know," she blurted out before thinking twice about it. Everyone in Santa Cruz knew the reclusive billionaire lived in the massive house overlooking the city and beach.
Here I go again, making an idiot of myself around this guy. She shoved her hands through her hair and tried not to think of all the blood she'd seen oozing from the stranger's head or of the murderer who could be watching them as they spoke.
"You said the man ran off?" His gaze still trained on the steps leading to his home, he took a step toward them, but she grabbed his arm to stop him.
Waves of intense need washed over her like a tsunami at the contact. Once again deja vu lit her heart whispering to her that she knew him from a long time ago. But how could that be possible?
