What will Eila choose? Love of her life or a life ruled by tradition? Fall in love with love, in this steamy saga from a best selling romance author.
Eila exhaled and her shoulders slumped. Her head felt stiff with anxiety. She unlatched the perpetual hair clip at her nape. Her dark, voluminous hair broke free and cascaded down her back, swirling in gentle curves. Picking up her bag, she went to the door.
“Oh!” She jerked back as the door opened from the other side. It was Brett.
He could only stare at her. “Finally,” he voiced faintly, his expression tender.
“Wh-what?” Eila stammered, confused by his affectionate gaze. Brett advanced into the room and Eila retreated. Brett stopped close to her. His fingers gently caught her chin and raised her face to his. His touch froze Eila. Wordlessly, she stared deep into his eyes. Everything else just melted away. Eila’s breath lodged in her throat as Brett’s fingers roughly and then gently and then roughly again stroked her plump lower lip. His eyes were fixed on her lips. Brett’s own mouth parted in anticipation of a kiss.
Eila thought she would explode with desire. Brett’s spicy smell assailed her and the more she looked into Brett’s eyes the further removed she became from everything coherent. Eila’s eyes felt heavy. Sighing, she lowered her lashes as she swayed toward Brett.
His mouth lightly caressed her cheek. Eila blindly turned her face into Brett’s. She delicately shivered at the sensation Brett was causing as he nudged and rubbed under her ear.
Eila’s shiver drove Brett wild. His mind started imagining ways to make her shiver more. There was something very sacred about the way he touched her. Desire wasn’t far away, their hoarse breaths indicated.
There was a loud knock on the door and Judith called out loudly, “Brett, your cab is here!”
Shocked, Eila’s closed eyes sprung open and jerked away. Her mind was spinning.
Brett caught Eila’s arm and pulled her back close to him.
