PG Excerpt:

Drawing her to him, he tilted his head as if to kiss her but cloaked her with softly spoken words that tingled through her core like the musical chimes of church bells. “Let me help you before you actually hurt yourself.” 

“I told you. I’m fine.” Though her body refused to move away from his touch, her words chose the proper course of action, and she added a stern glare to make her point. “I can take care of myself just fine.”

“Really?” His fingertips pushed her hips closer to his. The center of her heat embraced his engorged shaft, adding kindling to the hunger racing through her blood. “I believe every woman needs a good man’s help.”

“Maybe, but an exceptional woman can take care of herself.” If I could only get this damn body of mine to obey me. Though she remembered bracing her hands on his chest, she realized they’d somehow, all on their own, meandered their way around the back of his neck as if encouraging him to satisfy her untamable cravings. His nearness lit every one of her cells with primal lust.

“Really? Can you do this” He brushed the pad of his thumb temptingly across her bottom lip and leaned closer. “Or… this” Her unbridled needs allowed his presumptive yet tentative kiss to brush over her wanton lips. 

Oh my, please give me more. Her groan, meant to sound like resistance, came out more like a lustful moan. Though she braced her palms against his chest to keep him at bay, she leaned brazenly into him. In her heart, she wanted him and needed everything he offered. 

Greedily, she accepted another titillating pass before he seductively claimed her mouth, inspiring the intuitive desire to mate. “I can’t–”

Nibbling on her ear, he whispered, “That’s not what your scent or your body’s saying.” Leaning back but not releasing her from his embrace, he finished, “But if you want me to stop, I will.” 

“Oh, saints be, I’ve lost all control.” Tightening her arms, she closed the circle she already had on his neck and tossed all logic to the wind. Her legs shifted, circled around his waist, and clung to the lifeline of his strength. “Despite it being way too soon and knowing better – I want you.”

Note from Anita: I am currently rewriting my books and plan to re-release a new book each month for the next few years. Welcome to the journey and I hope you join me for this exciting ride.
