Jaguar's Kiss Countdown - Teaser Tuesday - 4 Weeks to Go!

With only one month until Jaguar's Kiss releases, it's time for an edition of Teaser Tuesday! Lila is a good little lioness who has always done her duty for the pride, but now that her arranged marriage is about to be announced, doubts are creeping in... helped along by a certain sexy jaguar...
Jitters. Perfectly normal. Everyone got bridal jitters.
The smooth baritone, the soft barely-there lilt of an accent touching the vowels. She knew without looking who it would be. And she didn’t want to look. Didn’t want to see those miles-deep brown eyes watching her with the unnerving mix of intensity and irritation. She’d never figured out why Santiago Flores always seemed so annoyed by her.
Conjuring up a smile, she turned her head and forced a sparkle into her voice. “Santiago. So good to see you.”
And it was always good to see him. The man was masculine beauty incarnate. Thick black hair just long enough to start to curl, burnished bronze skin, and a sculpted face and body that would have been pretty if it hadn’t been so powerfully male.
A slight frown put a crease between his brows. “Are you all right?”
“Me? Of course I am. Don’t be silly.”
A slow lift of one eyebrow seemed to argue that Santiago Flores was never silly. “You look like you’re about to vomit all over those pretty red shoes.”
“Why, Santiago, you do say the sweetest things.” She dimpled and batted her eyes at him—falling back on her second motto: It’s always the right time for flirtation. She angled her ankle to better display the shoes. “They are fetching, aren’t they?”
Those bottomless brown eyes narrowed. “You don’t have to be happy all the time like some kind of perfect little Stepford kitten. You’re allowed to have moods.”
She smiled brilliantly. “This is my mood.”
He snorted. “Of course it is. Why would anyone be frustrated by having their entire life story written for them? Never making any of their own choices—though maybe that’s what you want. If you don’t choose, it’s not your mistake, right?”
“I don’t know what you’re talking about.” Lila swallowed, trying to maintain a smile that was wobbling around the edges.
He was just a loner. An outlier. His opinion of her didn’t matter.
Even if he was right
