BLURB

Everything about Katarina Kelly tells me to run. But this brazen, brown-eyed beauty has brought me to my knees.

As an accomplished surgeon, I’ve managed my life with delicate precision. Meeting my needs without letting anyone get close has been a complex operation.

Until her.

I have no problem finding sultry women. Women without enough baggage to fill a jet plane. So why Kat?

This broken, bewitching minx is the challenge I never saw coming. The best night of my life and she walked away without looking back.

So why chase someone who’s nothing but trouble? Because I already know, without her my life will never be the same.

This woman is enchanting. She’s stunning. She could give me the future I didn’t know I wanted or leave me fractured and alone.

EXCERPT

Rubbing my belly, taking a sip of some of the best Merlot I’ve ever tasted, I smile over at Nick. “Thank you. This was really good.” He shared his steak, potato, salad, and bread. I didn’t realize how hungry I was until he lifted that silver dome, and the succulent aromas spilled out. Grateful to be wearing such casual clothing, I’m suddenly aware he’s still sporting suit pants and his starched white button-down.
“Do you want to get more comfortable?”
Nick raises a brow, smirking at me.
“I only meant I’m stuffed, but I’m wearing elastic.” I pull at the waist of my leggings for effect. “You’ve been wearing those dress clothes all day.”
“You don’t like my clothes?” he teases. I can tell he’s trying to be extra cautious, not saying or doing anything to make me feel pressured. I don’t want him to walk on eggshells around me. Deciding to lighten the atmosphere, I draw my legs up underneath me on the couch and slowly crawl closer to him. As I approach, I sit up, reach for his dress shirt and begin to unbutton it. As I do, I notice his eyes are starting to sparkle. He jumps up from where he’s sitting and bends down to pick me up. Holding me against him, my legs wrap around his torso as he strides to the bed. He carefully places me at the edge, and I don’t miss the questioning look on his face. The ‘are you sure this is okay’ look.
Nodding, I continue to unbutton his shirt. I look up into Nick’s beautiful hazel eyes. There’s so much reverence in them. He reaches briefly to stroke my cheek, trailing his hand down to one of my braids. I barely get the third button undone before he reaches behind his neck and pulls his shirt over his head, and deposits it at the end of the bed. I instantly place my palms onto his pecs and glide them down his torso to his amazing abs. Sitting up to kiss his warm, rippled abdomen, I’m interrupted when I feel Nick bend down to my ear.
“Oh, you beautiful girl,” he whispers, nuzzling my neck. “Will you stay with me tonight?”
Nodding slowly, I watch the broad grin that takes over his face. As I start to giggle back at him, I’m startled as he reaches for the hem of my shirt and pulls it over my head. Watching as he drops to his knees, he slowly removes my socks and then reaches for my pants. He peels them down my legs effortlessly, reminding me how skilled he is as a lover and how many times he’s probably done this. Trying to focus on more pleasant things, I shift my gaze to his handsome face. I run my fingertips along the stubble on his jaw and smile.
“What do you want, Kat?” His voice is rich and raspy.
Beaming up at him, I answer, “I want you to take these off.” Pulling at his suit pants.
“Yes, ma’am.” I watch as he removes his shoes, socks, and pants. He places them carefully over the corner chair, along with his shirt. Turning to me, wearing the sexiest black boxer briefs, my eyes travel to the obvious bulge tucked inside.
“Is that for me?” I point and quickly withdraw my finger, chewing on my nail in anticipation.
“Only you, kitten.” He walks back over to the bed, slowly removes his briefs, and climbs onto the bed with me. “Can I take these off?” Playing with the silky black lace bra and panties I’m wearing.
“Yes.”
Again, demonstrating the agility of a well-practiced lover, he reaches behind me and unhooks my bra with one snap of his fingers. As he slides the bra off of my arms, I hear him groan. He then moves to my panties, sliding his thumbs into the sides and carefully pulling them down my legs. He abruptly stops and stares.
“What?” Suddenly feeling vulnerable, I attempt to cover myself with my hands, but he stops me.
“You’re so fucking beautiful, Kat.” He lies down beside me, pulling me into him. Holding me close to his warm body as if he’s found a lost treasure. No one has ever held me this way. I wrap my arms tightly around his neck, placing kisses on his cheek. Turning into me, he kisses me passionately. I welcome his warm, wet tongue. He stops momentarily to tug on my lower lip before sliding his tongue back in for another taste.
I’m suddenly aware of how wet I am, as we’ve been unknowingly grinding against each other as we kiss. He reaches down and grabs my leg, wrapping it around him as our hips continue to undulate. As I cling to his neck, he moves his strong hands to my buttocks and squeezes as he glides his large erect shaft against my aching pussy. No one has ever been able to get me as turned on as this man. I can barely stand the teasing any longer when I feel the head of his cock slide into me. My head drops back in pleasure, and he moves his mouth down my throat, licking and kissing. His hands continue to knead my backside as he thrusts his hard cock into me. “Fuck, Kat. You feel so fucking good.”
My eyes spring open as I become acutely aware that we’re having sex without any protection. “Nick!”
