She almost tugged on the hem of her skirt. Wearing the feminine clothing had seemed to make perfect sense earlier, when her primary objective was to lose the PIs her family had sicced on her. She hated how the skirt left her legs three-quarters bare and the baby tee clung to her torso. His lips twitched in a suppressed smile as though he knew how much his presence unbalanced her.
The drive would end soon enough, then she could change into something that would shield her better. He laughed. It was still the warm and rich sound she remembered. A dangerously seductive one too. His eyes narrowed slightly, though the corners of his lips quirked. It was a business thing. We were certain—well, I was certain—that she was working for the enemy. She forgave you for everything until she decided she wanted you to do something for her. Between jobs. She was twenty-eight, far too old and sensible for these kinds of feelings. If anybody other than Ethan had made the comment, she might have rolled her eyes or arched an eyebrow in silent reprimand.
Damn, she needed to be more careful. Regardless of the effect he had on her, this was just banter. Everyone had more important issues to deal with than her. The BMW was supposed to be spacious, but not with him inside.
The cool glass felt refreshing against her heated skin. You know, helped her plan the wedding of the century and everything. In fact, Barron himself had been invited, and there was no way she was going anywhere near her grandfather. Ethan laughed. She had a platoon of professionals working on every detail.

It was what Alex wanted. Maybe even before. She sincerely hoped Natalie would never have a reason to even consider one. Sometimes you sound almost British. Speaking of which, how long are you going to be in the States? She flashed him a quick smile. Ethan slowed down as they approached an intersection. I work hard, but then so does everyone else. The steering wheel glided under his palms as he released it after the turn.
A sudden envy of the tightly stitched leather stole her breath away. And a few other places. She concentrated on breathing. But then, women throwing themselves at him and one-night stands were probably the norm for someone like Ethan.

He pulled into a parking lot in front of the hotel and handed the keys to a uniformed valet. Ethan climbed out, and the interior of the car seemed to expand. The bellhop took her lone bag, and Ethan escorted her to the lobby. His large hand resting at the small of her back seemed to sear her, and the heat streaked through her until her nipples pebbled and wetness pooled between her thighs. Legs clenched, she checked in. We put your bags there this morning.

Four, correct? She felt the curious stare from Ethan at her back. Kerri frowned as she walked toward the elevators. Thanks for taking the time to come get me. Kerri stopped arguing. The elevator ride to the suite seemed interminable. His subtle cologne was stronger in the close quarters, and her skin prickled with hypersensitivity. She could feel his gaze on her, speculative with unfathomable intent. She licked her lips as the elevator opened with a chime.
What did Ethan want? Impossible to get around here without a car. He kissed her. Nothing passionate, nothing demanding. It was just a peck, but somehow it was enough to make her tremble with unfulfilled longing. Her knees weakened. She leaned against the door.

What was it about this man that made her lose all her common sense and control? Say seven? Ethan applied more pressure on the gas, driving a bit faster than usual. The Aston Martin sped away from the hotel. On the night little Cassidy Williams conjured up the Devil, several of the townsfolk of Coyote Falls felt something shift—a strangeness in the air—that made their hair stand on end, and their skin crawl.
There were accidents that night. Prowlers, peeping toms, and things that go bump and scratch in the night are just the beginning. What do you do when the Devil comes calling? Not while I was clearing the dishes that morning, and not while I was showing James how we kept the books. My intuition kept screaming the obvious at me, but I was doing my best to ignore it.
After all, it could mean anything, right? Rockwood, and maybe… maybe…. This was supposed to be simple. Here he was, tangling himself up in my life, in my heart, and now this. Maybe his whole world was about to turn upside-down… and mine with it. Get your. Taboo tales, fantastic frolics, monstrous romps, and more grace these sinful pages! I kept picturing it, even lying there in the darkness, seeing it plunge in and out of that other woman… and despite myself—despite my terror and humiliation—I wished it was me there instead, lying there, spread open for him, feeling him inside me, stretching me… taking me.
The fact that I wanted him made me feel sick, right down in the core of my being. But that was completely insane. How could I ever agree to something like that? How could I give myself to a man like this? A man who thought he could snatch me away from my home, my life, and make me fall for him, while he held me prisoner? It was totally fucking crazy. The fact that I wanted him made me feel sick, right down in the core of my being.

A man who thought he could snatch me away from my home, my life, and make me fall for him, while he held me prisoner? It was totally fucking crazy. This mini-series can be read as a standalone. She was an angel, all right, and that was just what an asshole like me needed right now: someone to save me. But it was the money for her dad that did the trick.
From the look in her eyes when I mentioned him—a haunted, heartbroken kind of look—I knew he was the key. I considered it a down payments on a larger investment. There was one catch: I had to marry within two weeks of the reading of the will, or lose my inheritance forever. Now, I have the biggest challenge of my life: to find a woman and make her love me, no matter what it takes… Even if I have to strap her to the back of my bike, kicking and screaming. I realized then that he was holding back, not wanting to hurt me, or maybe even frighten me away. I wanted it all.
