Her Unlikely Bodyguard by Lorraine Nelson
Mystery/Suspense, Contemporary, Erotic Romance
Buy at http://www.breathlesspress.com/her-unlikely-bodyguard
A stalker who wants revenge…a past flame rekindled…Jemma Leigh’s summer just got interesting.
Jemma Leigh Harding has drawn the attention of an unknown stalker and returns to her hometown of Somerville, a safe haven—or so she thinks—on the east coast of Canada.
Theodore Garrity is the last person she expects to see, considering how easily he walked away from her after graduation to join the army.
Their past history involves secrets Jemma Leigh is hesitant to share. When it becomes clear the stalker has followed her home, Teddy becomes her unlikely bodyguard. Will the terror and past hurts separate them forever? Or will love blaze a fresh path for their future?
Jemma Leigh quickly grew aware of Teddy’s heated gaze. Her own increasing desire for this man decided her next words. “You know, he probably won’t show up until tomorrow afternoon at the very earliest. We’re probably wasting a few hours that could be better spent doing other things,” she suggested. “After all, Jim would alert us if there’s anything unusual going on.”
“True enough. What would you suggest?” he asked, and she watched as his eyes raked over her from top to bottom. “I’m easy.”
“Yes, I seem to remember that about you.” She giggled as she walked toward him, trying to appear sexy, but her muscles were stiff and sore from disuse. Her cast, thankfully, replaced with an air boot for support, made getting around a lot less cumbersome. She stopped a couple feet in front of him, pulling her tank top up and over her head in one graceful move. His surprised gaze drank in the site of her, and his eyes darkened with desire. Satisfied, she turned her back and requested, “A little help here.”
“Always my pleasure to help a damsel in distress.” He quoted her earlier words as he unfastened the hook on her bra, freeing her breasts to fall into his greedy hands as she felt herself being pulled backward toward him.
“This probably isn’t a wise move, Jemma Leigh.”
Maybe not, but loving you is all I can think of now that we’re truly alone.
Jemma Leigh felt the hardness of his shaft as it pulsed against her derrière. It had been so long since he’d held her like this. If things go wrong, I don’t want to go to my grave without loving this kind and gentle man one more time. ”I don’t care whether it’s wise or not. Love me, Teddy. Make love to me like you used to. Help me forget everything but you, if only for a little while.”
“Ah, Jemma Love, what if he hopped a plane and rented a vehicle? We need to be alert. We can’t do this, not here, not now, as much as it pains me to say so.”
“Yes, we can. How can I be alert to the danger when all I can think of is you? Remembering how it felt to have you inside me, moving as one, has drove me crazy all summer. We’re alone now. Just you and me. Don’t let him destroy what we could be to each other,” she said, turning into his embrace and taking the opportunity to run her hand up and down the ridge of his shaft. “It’s been so long, Teddy. There’s never been anyone but you for me.” Standing awkwardly on tiptoe, she kept most of her weight on her good foot and kissed him, summoning all the passion she had stored up over the years.
Suddenly, he lifted her in his arms and carried her down the hall to her bedroom. Setting her on her feet, he asked, “Are you sure about this? If I need to stop, it has to be now.”
“Don’t stop.” She pushed her jeans down over her hips, baring herself to his view as she finally stepped out of them. She stood boldly before him in the near darkness, clad only in silky thong panties. “Make me yours, Teddy. Let me feel you inside me once again.”
The Gypsy and The Widow by Juliet Chastain
Book 3 in Gypsy Lovers Series
Historical Erotic Romance
Will widowed Joanna Daniels choose a life of security and privilege with a wealthy lord or will she follow her heart and run away with the Gypsy laborer she loves?
Joanna Daniels is a widow who wants a father for her son. Tem Lovell is a widower hoping to find a mother for his children. They are perfect for each other except for one thing: she’s a destitute English gentlewoman who is being courted by a wealthy lord, while Tem is a Gypsy laborer who lives hand-to-mouth.
As the ardor she shares with Tem grows stronger, Joanna is forced to decide between the financial security the cold and controlling lord can provide and the uncertainty of the open road coupled with the passionate love Tem feels for her—that is, if Tem is willing to take an English gentlewoman as his bride.
He lifted her as though she weighed no more than a small child and she twined her arms about his neck. He looked down at her and he moved as though to kiss her—oh God, how she wanted him to do so. But he pulled back, shaking his head slightly and the moment passed. He carried her to the door of her house, which he opened with one hand and brought her inside.
The door closed behind them, and Joanna reached up and brought his head down so his lips met her own.
Tem felt his blood heat as their lips touched. He had dreamed of this, but always believed it could be nothing but a dream. Could it be that she wanted him as he wanted her—or was she a wanton as his fellows had suggested?
He pulled his head back and studied her face. His very heart and soul cried out for her as much as his body, but he would not be a plaything, a casual amusement for a Gadji. He placed her gently on a sofa and knelt beside her as she reclined against the pillows. Her amber eyes and black lashes stood out against her milky pallor and some of her deep golden hair had escaped its tie and curled against her neck.
She reached out and took his hand. A flush crept into her cheeks. “Do you not want to kiss me?” He thought her voice shook slightly.
He could not keep himself from bringing her hand to his cheek for an instant, although he knew he should not. “I do not make love with every woman who wishes it, not even when I myself wish it. “
“Do you wish to make love to me?”
“With all my heart I do, but there is no future for us and I care far more for you already than I should.”
She ran her fingers softly, tantalizingly, through his hair. “And I feel the same for you. I—I think of you so often. I so often have dreamed that you would touch me or kiss me. I long for it.” She lowered her eyes as the flush on her cheeks turned darker and spread across her face, her neck. “We would harm no one.”
He frowned and released her hand. “No one except ourselves, if indeed you feel as I do. I am already pained that I shall have to leave in a few days when our work is done here, perhaps sooner if Sir Edward does not pay as agreed. If you and I do what we wish to do, the pain of parting will be worse.”
“I don’t care,” she cried. “I would willingly suffer later if that is the price I must pay.”
Her lower lip trembled, and she bit it as though to still it. He could resist no longer, and he brought his lips hard against hers, his arms tight around her. He felt as though the floodgates controlling his pent-up desire for Joanna opened, and he drowned in his passion for her. He wanted nothing but to kiss her, to caress her, to love her in every way a man can love a woman.
