"Where's My Mother's Wedding Ring?"

Travis shook Rose hard enough to make her head shake and then quickly released her, her soft skin leaving his hands warm, the smell of her causing his blood to flow like hot lava.

She took a deep breath, the tops of her breasts straining against the material of her chemise, the outline of her nipples peeking through the white material. "I don't have your mother's ring. I didn't steal anything!"

He looked around the room and spotted her reticule lying on the bed. Quickly he grabbed her bag and started rifling through it.

"You're welcome to search through my belongings, but you're not going to find the ring. I suggest you start with my trunk."

Blood heated his already flushed skin. God, she was beautiful, standing there proudly in her chemise and stockings defending herself, even though he knew it was a lie. Her glossy brown hair hung loose and curling wildly down her back, urging him to run his fingers through her locks. Her skin was flushed with anger, her green eyes flashed with annoyance, and like a Gypsy queen she wove a spell around him.

If only she wasn't a cheat and a liar.

He paused and let his eyes roam over her body long enough to get her attention. She tilted her nose in the air disdainfully, yet her cheeks had a rosy tint to them that belied her proud defiance. God, he wanted her.

"To hell with the trunk. What if I start with you?"

Travis watched her swallow and noticed a spark of unease in her eyes. He took a couple of steps toward her. She retreated until her back was against the wall.

He placed his hands on either side of her, touching the wall, trapping her. "I could run my hands inside your clothing and let my fingers..."

"Stop!" Nervously, she licked her lips, then placed her hands on his chest and pushed away from the wall, propelling him back. Thrusting her breasts out, she placed one hand on his chest and firmly pressed. She stared into his eyes. "I can talk to you till we're both older than dirt, and you aren't going to believe a word I say. So I'm saying it for the last time. I didn't steal your mother's ring."

Travis wrapped his arms around her, his gaze drawn to her luscious mouth. He watched as she ran her tongue across her bottom lip, and the urge to follow its path overcame him. What did she taste like? Was she honey and sweetness or something more exotic?

"Like I was saying," he drawled. "I think I'll start with your lips."

I won't all the books best book ever

Very good but repetitive

First, let me start out by saying that this really was and amazing book-especially one that came free. The storyline moves along quick enough and there are moments that you accidentally burst out laughing or completely blush. This honestly could have been an amazing book if it weren't for one little problem; repetitive lines
I won't even write them down, I'll let you figure them out. If i was the author I would go back and fix that little issue as soon as possible. It kept distracting me from how good the story and I ended up rolling my eyes every chapter.
But other than that, it was a pretty awesome book. I'll definitely reading it again in the future.


I'm a huge fan of historical romances.... I truly couldn't put this book Down... my poor children had to send themselves that night!!! can't wait to read the next one!!!!
