April 28, 2015
“A promising debut​.​”—​PUBLISHERS WEEKLY​
Scottish Romance doesn’t get much steamier—or more dangerous—than a spy hunting her quarry, and losing her heart to him instead.
To pay a seemingly impossible debt, Mariel Brandon has become a spy for Aaron, one of England’s deadliest minds. Aaron’s latest mission for the sharp-witted and daring Mariel is to find two people in a heavily fortified castle on the Isle of Skye, a castle headed by the clan MacDonald and the powerful Kieran. Mariel is to seduce Kieran and get him to take her to Skye. If she succeeds, Aaron promises to let Mariel’s young brother go, and to free both of them from their debt.  If she fails, her brother will die.
What she doesn’t count on is craving Kieran MacDonald almost immediately upon meeting him. Now Mariel must keep a secret from Kieran—one that could get them both killed—as she tries to form a plan that will save her brother, get her out from under Aaron’s thumb once and for all, and keep her in Kieran’s strong arms forever.

Oh?” She smiled up at him and left her book open as she stood, putting her hand on the flat of his chest and stepping closer so he could wrap his arms around her. She fit so perfectly, and he could have looked down at her book and read it, he was so close. But he couldn’t do that to her. The diary was hers, her thoughts, something personal and private. He knew he couldn’t cross that line—even though he wanted to know everything she was thinking at every moment.

“You love writing in that book,” he said. “What it is you put down in there?”

Candy couldn’t hide from him, and he could sense the moment she felt uneasy. It was so subtle, the change in her body, from leaning into him, her energy reaching out and touching him, to pulling away. He rubbed her back and lower, over her sweet ass, holding her to him, not hard but in a way that let her know she could step away if she wanted. He wanted her with him, always, to stay close to him, but it had to be her choice. That nearly killed him at times, but the saying was “If you love someone, set her free, for if she truly loves you, she will always return.” For Neil right now, because of what he’d done, he’d learned that with Candy, it was so true. He couldn’t push, not ever again.

“You don’t have to share it,” he said.

Her eyes darted up so fast. He could see the surprise, maybe because he’d always pushed, expecting her to share everything, body, mind, and soul. He still wanted that, but something had changed when he’d hurt her with his betrayal—his secrets.

No more, ever.

“They’re just my thoughts, feelings,” she said, and she didn’t need to say any more. He could tell she expected him to push.

“These are things you don’t want to share with me?” He had to know, to have some idea of where she was in her head with him, just to understand where they still needed to go to heal.

“You’d think they’re silly, I’m sure. I’d feel foolish voicing them, but I want to be able to put it down. It helps me,” she whispered.

He nodded although he couldn’t help feeling a little hurt that she didn’t want to share everything with him. He also knew he couldn’t push, not anymore.

“Thank you,” she said.

“For what?”

“For not pushing, for not insisting on reading it. You’ve never looked at it, have you?”

Before, he would have. That was the old Neil, who was so obsessed with having Candy and molding her into who he believed she should be. What a fool he’d been. “No, I wouldn’t do that, although I am curious,” he teased.

She slid her hand around his waist and slapped his butt playfully, hugging him closer. She had the most beautiful smile as she leaned in and tilted her head up, again biting her lower lip. “Maybe one day I’ll show you.”

What could he say to that? She watched him with a lightness in her eyes that melted away the uncertainty that had been between them moments ago. He wanted her to trust him again. Oh, he knew she did in some things, but he wanted that ultimate trust where she would believe that her precious, vulnerable heart would be safe with him regardless of what life threw their way. If and when she trusted him completely again, he swore to God that he would never let her down again.

“I would love that,” he said.

Excerpt

 

Ruby looked up at me, her green eyes glittering in the near
darkness. My gaze fell on her red trembling lips.
Before I could stop myself, I was kissing her, forcing my tongue
between her teeth. At first, she fought me, but then I felt her mold herself to
me and press herself against my groin.
There was no waiting. I pulled at her clothes, almost tearing them
off her. Her creamy flesh beckoned me, smelling of earth and sin. I tore away
my own clothes so that I could hold her warm body against my naked skin.
She reached up and took my face in her hands, “Look at me.”
I looked down into her green eyes, feeling my very soul pull
towards her. “What?”
Ruby brushed her hand over my cheek, “I do love you. I love you so
much that it scares me sometimes.”
I was kissing her then, trailing my lips along her jawline and
down to her neck. I could hear her unsteady and ragged breaths as I licked at
her collarbone, but my own breath was coming just as fast.
I eased her down onto the floor and stretched out beside her. My
lips found her breast, she cried out as they closed around her nipple. I
brought my hand up to knead the other breast, pinching that nipple between my
first finger and thumb. Ruby arched her back and twisted her fingers in my hair
as my tongue circled her nipple before taking it between my teeth in a gentle
nibble.
I pulled her closer, sliding my hand under her so that I could
clutch her buttock. I ran one finger along her cleft, teasing her nether
opening.
She drew in a sharp breath and bucked her hips upwards as if trying
to get closer to me. I ached with my need to impale her, to fill her
completely.
I groaned, low and animalistic. I shifted so that I could move
further down, leaning over her and brushing her hair off her neck and
shoulders.
“Can I really trust you?” I asked as I teased her skin with a
feather touch.
“Yes,” she gasped. “Yes.”
I brought my lips back down to her lips and then trailed along her
throat, between her breasts, and stopped just below her stomach. I positioned
myself between her legs, eased her thighs apart, and then lowered my mouth to
her wet slit.
Ruby gasped as I buried myself there, lapping at her inner folds.
She bucked and cried out as I held her down and worked her over. She was still
twitching when I moved back up her body, kissing her hot flesh, as I took her.
She clutched at my shoulders, pulling me closer. I felt her come
apart again and again until I could not hold back anymore. I swore as a shudder
overtook me.
We remained on the floor, Ruby’s head against my chest. My fingers
tracing the ridges of her spine as I listened to our hearts beat in time.
