Excerpt

“What are you doing out here?” he asked
softly.
“Exactly what it looks like,” I said. I sounded a little more curt than
I had intended, so I softened my voice. “I’m photographing the trees in the
park. I just didn’t realize you were so…so near.”
My face heated up. His eyes bore into me as I said these last two words,
and for a moment, his guarded look faltered. “I meant what are you doing out
here, alone again at four in the morning?”
“It’s when the light is best,” I said with a twinge of irritation. Why
was I explaining myself to this man? I put a hand on my hip and, with a hint of
sass, added, “What are you doing out here?”
He ignored my question. “It’s not safe to be out here by yourself.”
I raised my eyebrows, bristling at his stark tone and the implication
that he, practically a stranger, was the authority on what was best for me. And
he was implying that I wasn’t safe out here when he himself was, in fact, out
here alone as well. After all the talk about pro-gender-equity men in Sweden,
how had I managed to find a neighbor who hadn’t gotten the message? I sighed.
“I have pepper spray,” I said, digging in my pocket until I pulled it
out.
“Not sure that stuff is legal here in Sweden,” he said, raising an
eyebrow. “Besides, you weren’t ready to use it.”
“I would have been if there was real danger.” I knew my answer sounded
childish before the words even left my mouth, but I said it anyway.
Much to my increasing irritation, he gave a dry
laugh.
“Fine,” he said. “Then spray me. Right now.”
I frowned. “You don’t want me to do that. It’ll burn
your eyes. Badly.”
“That reasoning is why the pepper spray won’t help
you,” he said, the amusement still on his face. “You have to be willing to use
it.”
He was goading me, I could feel it, but it was working.
My hand twitched around the canister. 
“Fine,” I said and reached to pull the cap off the
spray.
But before I even touched it, he grabbed both of my
hands together with one of his. He used the other to turn me around and hold me
against his solid chest. My pepper spray dropped to the ground. I gasped, my
mind trying to process the sensation of my back against the warmth of his hard
muscles. I stopped breathing. His large arm held me firmly against him, and my
heart frantically pounded inside my chest. I looked down at the scarred
knuckles of the hand that was easily holding both of mine.
Before my mind had fully registered all these
details, his grip softened. Gently, he turned me back around by my waist so I
was facing him, but he didn’t release me right away. I wasn’t sure where to
look. At the broad, solid chest only inches away? At the tense muscles of his
arms? I drew in my first, shaky breath in too long. I tilted my head up and
found Niklas’s eyes fixed on mine.
“It’s not safe to wander around alone at night,
even if it’s light out,” he said softly.
