Overview

Once he taught her the joy of seduction, would she believe in the power of love?

Bo Tyler was downright mesmerizing when he worked his magic on the children during therapy sessions, but Clarissa Woods kept resisting the sweet dare in his dark eyes! No one had ever teased her or flirted the way Bo did, and she'd never known the sizzling pleasure his lips promised with every touch. Could a special man who wouldn't settle for friendship be the lover who'd silence her fears and teach her to fly free at last?

In a story that is as richly romantic as it is poignant, Jill Shalvis celebrates the heart's astonishing capacity for healing when surprised by a gift of love. He'd offered her compassion, tenderness, and a chance to escape a terrifying past, but could they help each other wrestle the demons that still stood between them and happiness?

"Bo, we're nothing to each other," Clarissa insisted.

"Is that right?"

"We've known each other a week."

"Yes," he replied.

"It's ridiculous to feel involved so soon."

"Right."

"You couldn't possibly have feelings for me."

"Is that me you're trying to convince, or yourself?" he asked softly.

She shook her head. "You scare me."

"I shouldn't," he chided her, and scooted closer to her. He took her hand in his, drew her over to the couch. Her leg brushed his, and she flinched. At her sudden movement, he stiffened.

Suddenly it struck her as funny, and she struggled not to giggle. "If we keep wincing every time we touch each other, we'll be jumping around like corn popping."

Slowly the tension drained from him. He pulled her hand between his. "That sounds promising."

"What?" she asked warily.

He gave her a slow, wide, unbearably appealing smile. The gold flecks in his eyes danced. "Touching each other . . . "

Suddenly, for the first time in her entire life, she wanted to be kissed.
