Theo obviously liked how I looked. He’d enjoyed an eyeful of my bra-less chest and he’d also taken a sudden interest in my lips. I licked the lingering droplet of wine off the upper while lowering my glass. Time to get things moving. “So.”
He lifted his gaze, brow quirked. “So.”
“Why’d you agree to come over tonight?”
Theo’s sexy smirk sent flutters through my stomach. “I enjoy making you laugh. Helping you remember there’s life outside of your life’s goal.”
“Is that all?”
He nodded and tipped up his glass, not taking the time to savor the dry, oaken flavor.
My entire body tingled with the thought success was in reach. “Why didn’t you sit over here with me?”
Theo peered at me with his dark eyes. Fathomless and unreadable. “Because you’re on a mission.”
For the second time since he’d arrived, laughter bubbled from me. “I am.”
“And according to you, you always succeed.”
He studied the wine while swirling it in the glass. “I sat over here to thwart your plans.”
I narrowed my eyes as I studied his face. “Why?”
“You don’t need any distractions right now.”
Spine stiffening, I lifted my chin. “Or perhaps that’s exactly what I need right now.”
“Not my kind of distraction.”
His gaze latched onto me, and finally--finally—heat I’d dreamed of simmered in his stare. I fought the strange desire to lower my eyes. “I never back down. Ever.”
His coy smirk sent a rush of moisture straight south to slick my panties. “You should.”
“Oh?” I allowed my smile to grow and rubbed a fingertip along my shirt’s drooping neckline. His attention swung downward. “And why’s that?”
“You’re messing with fire.” He lifted his gaze and scorched me with the lust in his black eyes.
Fire? Oh yeah. My body ignited, and burning need swelled between my thighs and settled into my clit. I got up and set my wine glass on the coffee table while moving around it—all without breaking eye contact. Focused on his face, I peered down at him from between his legs. “I can handle a little heat.”

Chasing after Him.
I slid my gaze down over her trembling body and back up. Her hard nipples begged for my teeth, but jaw clenched, I continued my slow perusal upward to peer into her eyes. “I’m not going to fuck you.”
If looks could kill, they say. Yeah, I’d have fifty scalpels sticking from various body parts. I stood up before she decided she needed a little more practice slicing and dicing. Hands on hips, she glared up at me.
I couldn’t help another chuckle. “You are so damn hot when you’re pissed.”
“Oh, fuck off.” She spun, and all but ran to her front door. “I don’t know why the hell I bothered. Not like you’d be into someone like me anyway.”
“What the fuck is that supposed to mean?” I asked, stalking across the living room to tower over her.
Little Miss In-Control’s throat bobbed as she swallowed and shrank away from me. “You’re…” her voice wavered, and she licked her lower lip, “the hottest man I’ve ever seen, and I’m nothing special. Tiny tits, hardly any curves to speak of—”
I grabbed her up in my arms and pushed her against the wall. Crushed my mouth to hers, taking. Tasting. Fucking her mouth with my tongue.
Happy May!! Hope the flowers are thriving in your part of the world.

Longing for Her
A Risso Family Novella
May 7, 2015
Straight-laced Cole Risso has longed for his sister’s bohemian best friend Gwen since he first laid eyes on her as a kid. Now, as future patriarch of the Risso Family, he’s expected to marry well. A free spirit and unconventional daughter of a pot-toking hippie hardly qualifies.
When one night of giving into temptation ruins them both for any other, Cole and Gwen are faced with a decision - love the other enough to let them go, or defy family expectations and fight for their hearts’ desires. No matter the decision, their choices have the power to destroy all they hold dear.
