What a Woman Desires
by Rachel Brimble
From country girl to actress of the stage, one woman dares to live her dreams—but is she brave enough to open her heart…?
Monica Danes always wanted more than the village of Biddestone had to offer. After a failed courtship to a man of her parents’ choosing, she fled for the city of Bath and never looked back. Today, Monica is the undisputed queen of the theater—a wealthy, independent woman. But when she is called home in the wake of tragedy, Monica returns—intending to leave again as soon as possible.
Thomas Ashby has been a groom at the Danes estate since he was a boy—and has been enamored with Monica for almost as long. He knows he isn’t a suitable match for his master’s daughter, despite the special bond he and Monica have always shared—and their undeniable attraction. But now that she’s returned, Thomas has one last chance to prove himself worthy—and to show Monica a life, and a love, she won’t want to give up...
His gaze bored into hers--blue, beautiful, and full of passion. He groaned and lifted her into his arms. She locked her ankles at the base of his spine as he carried her across the room to her chaise. He lay her down; his mouth locked on hers and he slid his hand over her body until his fingers were in her pubic hair.
“At last.” She exhaled a shaky breath as his fingers rubbed and caressed her. Their eyes met and she reached for his penis.
Together they stroked and enjoyed, explored and pleasured until he grew as hard as steel in her hand and her need slipped over his fingers. “Thomas, please.”
He raised his body and, leaning on one elbow, hovered his weight above her as though afraid she might break if he lay on her. “Lie on me, Thomas. I want to feel your body pressed against mine. I have to live for now. Please.”
“You’re my lady, Monica. You’re my woman.”
He entered her as a woman longs to be taken. His thrust was deep, unyielding, and entirely possessive. Her mouth dropped open and her breath burst from her lungs in a rush of pleasure. He was thick and wide. When he drew back and reentered her with the ferocity she craved, Monica lifted her hips to meet him.
She gripped his biceps as he took her harder and deeper; she raised her knees and he slipped against a spot she never knew existed. Her blood pumped and her body perspired as the momentum grew. He gritted his teeth, his eyes full of custody and lust as he took her higher . . .
Her pleasure when it came took her breath away, and Monica cried out loud for the sensation she’d heard talk of but never knew existed. Joyous sensations shook her from deep inside and rolled through her body from her toes to her scalp. She laughed at the pure power of it. Thomas thrust deep a final time before his body stilled and he shuddered, finishing with a curse to high heaven.
