Release Day Excerpt:
I only had a momentto observe how very clean it was before he had me against the wall, pinned byhis huge physique.
“You never came.”His voice was a low, husky whisper. “I waited all night.”
My hands rested onhis chest, and heat flamed through me with every heartbeat. My eyes traveledup, up, up to his. They were darkened now, and I was certain he was thinkingthe same thing as me.
He remembered howfantastically our bodies came together two nights ago. I barely registered himreaching out to lock the door.
“I’m sorry,” was allI could say.
“When you walked inthe restaurant tonight… god, you’re so beautiful.” He spoke against my skin ashis lips pressed into my brow, his beard roughing my closed eyelids. “Are youfeeling bad?”
“No,” I managed tosay despite the heat surging through me as his lips moved to my temple. “I…didn’t think I could eat.”
“Good,” he said in athick voice before covering my mouth with his. Mine opened quickly, drawing himin. Our tongues entwined before his lips moved to my jaw then down my neck.
“I thought about youall day.” His breath whispered across my skin, and I couldn’t stop a surge ofdesire low in my stomach. “Will you let me have you here?”
“Yes,” I barelyspoke, and he dropped to his knees.
He gathered the thin fabric of my dress, shovingit up to my waist as he caught the side of my thong with his thumb.
