"Rising from the ashes to embrace love!" ~ Aunt G
I don't need love... and I sure as hell don't need her.
My past is black and desperate. A gloomy whisper of haunting memories that have made me tough as nails and cold as ice. I've had to scrap my way to the top of the Vegas security industry.
But she doesn't think I have what it takes.
She thinks she can boss me around while I serve as a test dummy for her little women's self-defense class. I insult her at every turn, and she takes it.
Until the moment she doesn't...she delights in kicking my ass, and I realize she's the first formidable opponent I've ever encountered.
Somewhere along the way, the lines blur into a misty fog. Lust becomes intertwined with hate, and I want every single inch of her sculpted body. For the first time in my life, I want a woman for more than just one steamy night.
We shouldn't get involved. I'm night; she's day. I'm negative; she's positive. But just like the ends of a magnet, we gravitate toward each other.
Even though her words say I'm inadequate, the look in her piercing eyes reveals her lies. She wants me. Flat on my back until I'm begging for mercy.
Or she is.
But she's been hiding something from me. And I've been hiding something from her. If either of our wretched secrets sees the light of day, it's over.
One touch and I'm lost. Nothing's going to stop me from possessing her...not even the man who burns to hurt her. If he thinks he can take her away from me, he's going to be sorry.
Maybe even dead.
