Why him? The only man who’d ever stirred such an intense physical reaction from her without a single touch.
“The hard-on can’t be helped, preciosa. It started when I saw you last night and hasn’t let up.”
“I spent some very uncomfortable minutes watching you bathe. I’m only friggin’ human!”
Her unexpected response left him huge, and hard, and hungry for so much more.
“If I hadn’t claimed you, they would’ve expected I share you.” And I’m not about to do that.
If you’ve spent any time with him,” she indicated Kris, “you’d understand my irritability.”
He was half golden-haired angel, half dark, intense temptation.
A strong arm pulled her against the heat of his body, holding her tight. “I’ll do my best to keep you safe.”
Was she indebted to a man or monster?
She cracked open an eye to find herself directly beneath the handsomest man she’d ever seen.
An eternity went by as they remained in the same spot, impossibly close, fueling urges at all the wrong places.
As muc-h as he’d tried not thinking about her, he’d grabbed a shirt in the same chocolate brown as her eyes.
“Sweetheart, trust me, neither one of my partners could fill out a teddy like you do.”
She was barefoot and bare-assed without a clue as to where they were holding her.
“I would’ve given you whatever you wanted.” He was quiet, thoughtful. “You know that, don’t you?”
This beautiful woman who fate delivered into his life had pulled at every heartstring he’d thought dead.
“I doubt I was breathing the whole time he looked at me.”
