Read an Excerpt

He'd returned. Thankfully.

Her body preened its thanks, arching from the downy folds of the bedcovers, aching for his touch, temptation overruling any coherent thought.

This was her fantasy played out in the shadowy hours of pre-dawn. She welcomed him with open arms, an internal greed of sensual need cohabiting with the desperation of an addict for a fix.

He was her fix. And she wanted him. Now!

Each night proved the same. He came. He teased. And she desperately wanted him.

She couldn't see him clearly, the mists of fantasy versus reality obscuring him partly. But it was what he did to her that called to her.

His kisses. His touch. His loving.
