These women, I don’t look for them. They just appear. They are drawn to the severe cold in my eyes and the extreme heat in my pants. I don’t want to disappoint them. I always aim to please. They want a hardcore stallion and sadly I am little else. So I play the part.
I’ve had them all: tall, petite, thin, heavy, skinny, curvy, blondes, brunettes, gingers. Their loneliness reminds me of my own. I want to pay attention to them, make them feel special. Let them do the same for me. But when it’s done, I don’t want to linger there within the mutual denial.
But then Grace comes along and all bets are off. Her touch feels so damn good I get the urge to wrap my arms around her, but I worry that I might hurt this sweet girl like a clumsy Frankenstein. If I can do one thing for her, it would be staying far, far away.
This novelette is a short prequel to BEAUTIFUL RUIN and it can be read before or after. It includes an excerpt of the first chapter of BEAUTIFUL RUIN.
