EXCERPT

“I just feel I need something, Rachel. Something away from this life and the army and I don’t know what.” Annie’s voice shook as she sat back down and looked searchingly into Rachel’s eyes.  Rachel, in a rush as always, scooped her nail polish and mobile phone into her leather bag, stood up and kissed her friend on her head.

“Annie, is everything all right with you and Mike?” she asked, clearly concerned.

Annie was aware she had always appeared so happy and settled as an army wife. She had a reputation for being the one wife you could count on for support and guidance and the one who always had a cheery smile and a kind word. She didn’t doubt Rachel could sense that she was not herself but wasn’t sure how she could help.

“I just feel like I’m really being taken for granted, Rache,” Annie said, pulling her long blonde hair back into a scrunchie.  “I don’t know what’s wrong with me… or us. I’m just getting more and more fed up with Mike spending so many hours at the Mess now he’s back on camp. It’s like he feels more comfortable there and not at home.” Annie held back her tears and swallowed as she looked at her reflection in the window. It’s like he’s forgotten the us we used to be and the awful thing is I think I have too, she thought sadly.

Excerpt

“You’ve never changed your opinion of me, have you?” he asked in a hard voice.  “I’m still the boy from the bad neighborhood, not fit to be a father to your son.”  With a contemptuous glance, he turned away and strode to the fireplace.  He leaned on the mantel, his profile to her.  His chest rose and fell with his shallow breathing.

Doriana studied him.  His jaw set in a tight line.  His entire body looked coiled and ready to fight.  Or maybe flee.  Tears sprang to her eyes.  They’d come so far in the last weeks.  How had it all gone so terribly wrong?

“What do you want, Logan?”  She tangled her fingers through the long strand of pearls she wore, trying to rein in the anxiety that churned her stomach.

Logan’s hazel gaze impaled her.  “I want to be in Josh’s life.”

“What?”  She yanked on the pearl necklace.  The strand came apart in her hands.  She watched helplessly as beads rolled all over the floor.  My life is coming apart the same way.  She raised her gaze to find a stony-faced Logan staring at her with unyielding eyes.

“What’s your answer?”  He spit the words out.

“How long will you be in his life, Logan?  You’ll leave again and what will happen to Josh?  I will not see him hurt.”

Loganwas at her side in an instant.  He grasped her shoulders.  She winced at the anger in his eyes.  The twinkling lights of the tree reflected on the golden stubble of his beard, mocking the tension that arced between them like an electrical current.

“I’m Josh’s father,” he rasped.  “I’m not some stranger, here one day and gone the next.”

“Aren’t you?”  She bit down on her lip.  Hurt shattered the chiseled planes of Logan’s face.  She glimpsed the vulnerable young boy he’d once been, the boy she’d fallen in love with.  He released her as if he couldn’t bear to touch her.  Her throat thickened with tears.

“So that’s it.”  The quiet calmness of his voice damned her more than shouts.  “I’ve never been more than a temporary diversion to you.”

“That’s not true,” she whispered.  “I loved you.  I ….”   She stopped herself before she blurted that she loved him now.

“Do you really know what love is?”  His gaze raked her.  “You have no problem giving your body to me, but I’m not worth bothering with on any other level.”

Fury and pain pierced her like a carpenter’s awl.  “How dare you talk to me like that?”

He released a breath.  “I’m sorry.  I was out of line.”  Sadness creased his features.  “I just want to be in my son’s life.”

“How do I know you’ll be around for him?”

“Trust me.  Damn it, just trust me.”

Could she trust him?  Maybe she should ask him to stay.  What if he said no?  Could she take that chance?  Her insides shook.  “I can’t.”

“You can’t trust me?”  Steel hardened his voice.

She shook her head.  “No, that’s not it.”

“Then what is it, Dorie?”

Words dried in her throat.  He had to want her enough to never leave again.  She wouldn’t beg.

“Damn you,” he said in a thick whisper.

He pulled her to him and took her lips in a bruising kiss.  She held herself tight, resisting his pull.  His relentless lips demanded her surrender.  She could no more fight him than she could stop breathing.  And she loved him.  She twisted her arms around his neck and urged his lips apart with her tongue.

He let out a low groan.  His lips softened against hers and he opened his mouth for her.  He tasted like cinnamon coffee and mint.  She pressed closer.  He might leave and break her heart.  But he belonged to her now.

They slid to the floor together.  He leaned over her, his eyes dark and mysterious in the soft Christmas lights.  His unique scent of male and citrus mingled with the pine of the tree.  Those scents would forever remind her of Logan.

She wrapped her arms around him and pulled him down.  Molding her body to his, she kissed him with all the love and hope she couldn’t voice.  His taut frame covered her.  The urgency of his mouth and tongue excited her to a new wildness.  She would love him tonight with all she had to give.

His mouth plundered hers while his hands wandered down her body, massaging, stroking, driving her crazy with want.  Her soft cries filled the quiet room.

He leaned on his elbows and looked down at her.  Desire darkened his eyes, but something else stirred deep in the gold-flecked depths, something that reached out to the longings in her soul.  “Love me tonight, Logan,” she whispered.

“God help me, but I need you.” He undressed her and flung her clothes aside.  His own quickly followed.

She lay down again and held her arms out to him.  He lowered himself on top of her.  His flesh burned her heated skin.  The wool of the Oriental rug pressed into her bare back.  The slight pain intensified her passion for him.

“Now,” she whispered.  She wrapped her hand around his hard penis and guided him to her.  He entered her, taking her with a possessiveness that inflamed her.  Arching her hips against his, she molded her body to his.  She belonged to Logan.  Only this moment mattered.  She met his every hard thrust, urging him with her body to make her his forever.  She barely recognized the sound of her voice crying out his name.

He cupped her bottom, lifting her to meet him, driving deeper and deeper into her.

Her climax erupted, fast and furious, like a shower of dazzling stars, shooting her into the sky.  The lights from the tree overhead blurred and danced before her eyes.

Loganshuddered with his own climax.  She clung to him, running her hands over his muscled back, reveling in his heat and masculinity.

He collapsed on top of her.  The fragrance of pine joined with the musk of their lovemaking.

She wound her arms around Logan’s neck and closed her eyes.  She would sear this moment onto her brain.

Review by Sue Ellen

How can you not fall in love with this cover! It is one of those that makes your want to just grab it and dig into because you can tell this will be one of passion, suspense, and who knows what else. I know thats what I thought about it as soon as I saw it! The author has out done herself in my opinion with this amazing story. As soon as I started to read it I was enthralled into the world of both main characters (Dorie and Logan). I could feel the hurt and struggle that Dorie had to go through to keep her secret safe especially after all the years the man all of a sudden drops into her life again. Logan has built himself up from what he was 16 years ago and now is asked for his services by his first love’s dad to find out who is trying to ruin the company. Has the love flame burnt out or will these two come back to rekindle and make up for those lost years. When lives are put at stake what will it take for all truths to come out…The author will have you on the edge of your seat and even though i loved to hate a couple characters they shone through at the end with the twists and turns the author throws at you. The flow of the plot is flaweless and well thought out. Check this book out next time you want a little suspense in your romance you will be happy you did.
