As the countdown to the release of Destiny Forgiven begins, I have the first of a weekly series called Teaser Tuesday. If you don’t know anything about the book, it’s the fifth in my paranormal romance series and it’s releasing HALLOWEEN!!!
As we get closer, I’ll start posting information about my giant Halloween Book Bash I’m having to celebrate, plus all the ways to win tons of prizes!
Destiny Forgiven features Maddox, a sorcerer who’s been tortured and brainwashed to believe his childhood sweetheart, Felicity, is now his worst enemy. As Felicity tries to survive the harsh sentence in the sorcerer prison, her only chance for survival is making Maddox remember who she is.
Her eyes widened. “What? I… No.”
She was modest? After she claimed to have been in love with him now she refuses to get naked in front of him? Fuck that.
“You’re going in that tub whether you strip yourself or I do it for you.”
She frowned then looked down at her raggedy clothes. “What’s the point of getting clean when I just have to put these dirty clothes back on?”
“The water’s warm.” He dipped his hand in to check. “It’ll help you heal.”
After a moment of contemplation she finally shrugged then mumbled, “It’s not like I haven’t been naked in front of you before.”
He took a deep breath and held it as she lifted her shirt over her head. Fuck. The bruises caught his attention first. And that her ribs showed too much to be healthy. Ugly black and purple marks made a pattern across her torso to just under her breasts. The urge to hit, to kill tore through him again. He stamped it down with thought of his mission – why he couldn’t fail. His people were counting on him. What he stood for what right. What she and the rebels did was –
When she unsnapped her bra and slid the straps off of her shoulders, his mind blanked. Creamy white skin surrounded her puckered nipples. He longed to suck one into his mouth. When she crossed her arms over her chest, he realized he was staring and shook himself out of the daze.
“Uh,” he explained brilliantly then cleared his throat. “The pants too.”
Despite the blush that spread across her cheeks, she boldly stood and shimmied her jeans down her hips. He grimaced at the crackling sound they made from being stiff with dried dirt and sweat. Before he could catch a glimpse at much more than her sexy ass, she jumped in the tub and sunk down in the water.
He heaved in a breath and stood awkwardly in the middle of the room.
“Thank you,” she said, peering at him from just above the tub wall. “I can take it from here.”
The hell if he was leaving the room now. His cock was pulsing just thinking about her naked just a few dozen feet away. He wished he could strip and climb in there with her. The Jacuzzi tub was big enough – why shouldn’t he?
No. He almost let out an agonized groan. Naked in a tub with the enemy was a stupid idea. And by the way his pants were tenting, he’d fuck her up against the tub wall in a matter of minutes. She was too hurt for that and she deserved better.
