Read an Excerpt

"Don't. Don't do that."

She gestured helplessly. "Adam, I'm glad to be your friend--"

"I don't want your goddam friendship." His voice was hard and clipped. "What will it take to get that through your head? And please don't tell me I'm a jock. Don't lump me with the asswipe who killed your father and left you lame."

Susannah flinched at his words, and Adam's face softened. "I'm sorry," he said. "But let me show you I'm not like him, Anna. Give me the chance."

Adam's words reached into her, turning her inside out, and Susannah swallowed uneasily. She was sweaty, disheveled, but he was looking at her as though he was starving man and she a five-course meal. Worse still, her body was responding to that look and his words.

"I'm sweaty," she blurted out, and he gave her a crooked smile.

"I'm used to sweat. You smell better than a lot of my teammates do. You look better. And I bet anything you feel better." He reached out, snagged a drop of perspiration on his finger, and she shivered at the feel of it on her flesh. "I don't think I've ever been so turned on by sweat before," he whispered.

He stepped forward, pulled her into his arms, and pressed his lips against hers. She felt his hands tangle in her hair, keeping her head steady as his mouth moved with tortured sensuality on hers, branding her with a torrid desire. Any thought of breaking away from him was gone, not with his body pressed against hers, his need for her evident against her belly. His kisses were like an addictive drug; the more he gave, the more she craved.

"This is insane," she whispered against his lips as the kiss broke.

"So commit me." His voice was harsh, urgent, and, takinga deep breath, he brought his lips to hers again, his tongue making its way into her mouth. Helpless against the onslaught of desire raging through her body, Susannah wound her arms around his neck, pulling herself closer to him.

"Susannah." His breath was hot against her ear as he broke free from the kiss and she trembled at the need, the longing in his voice. "God help me, I've wanted you for awhile. I never thought it would be returned."
