Not just breaking us up, but destroying our hope for a future. My secrets, his advisers, and the past conspire together, and it seems they’ll succeed.

Colin reclines against the back of the couch. I’m in the chair at the small side table, with ten feet separating us. I’ve had enough brandy to warm Iceland. Or, maybe the heat is from the way he tracks me with his eyes. From the tips of my toes, that are now freed from heels, along the line of my legs, one crossed over the other and bared by the long split in my skirt. And then to my breasts, now rising and falling with my heightened breath. All from a damn look that has my nipples pebble to sharp points. I should stare at the floor, his shoes, not his quads that are hardly contained in black pants, or his biceps bulging as he crosses his arms over his bulbous pectorals—muscles. Every single muscle on this man is tight and thick.
I squeeze my thighs together and he growls.
I do it again and he stalks forward.
From couch to chair, he’s on me in a second. My head snaps back as his hands grip me above my waist and he hauls me up. I’m plastered against him with my fingers in his hair—every luscious silk strand. His mouth slams into mine.
Hot, sweet like wine and sexy as hell, his tongue sweeps in to taste me. Deep lashing licks to shorter strokes, and my heart leaps into next year. Something is going to happen between us. I want it like I’ve never wanted anything before. I’m taking a new path and he’s at the end of it. No matter what happens between us, he will become a part of me and I’ll take him with me forever.
He breaks away, breathless and pleading with his eyes.
“Tell me to stop, Charlie.” His chest heaves beneath my hands as I run them all over him and then his shoulders, feeling the rippling veins on the side of his neck and up to his jaw. I hold him as a struggle plays out on his features and in his gaze. “Talk to me,” he whispers.
I brush my lips against his. “I want this.”
He groans his agreement and tugs on the belt holding my dress together. It billows open and his thumbs help it from my shoulders and then down my arms until it falls to the floor. Left in lace lingerie, I wonder what he’s thinking. I’m more buxom than bony and for the first time in my life I care that my hips are round and my breasts are big.
Stepping away a foot, he says, “Take off your bra.”
I hold my breath; no one has seen me naked before. Not like this. My vision blurs as I reach back to the clasp.
He inhales at the same moment I feel the chilled air against my skin, confirming my vulnerability. “Charlie,” he breathes, lifting a hand to feather his fingers down the side of my body, stopping on my hip bones. “Look at me.”
A cry is lodged in my throat. I’m afraid of what I’ll find when I do. I need him to kiss me and make me forget the insecurities in my head, and the past that swirls along with them. A bleating whimper escapes when I find his hungry eyes, and he says, “You’re gorgeous.”
I launch myself at him, kissing his chin, his cheek, nipping on his jaw. “Make me feel everything. Make me feel so good the only thing I’ll remember is this night and you.”
The last word is lost in his mouth. He sweeps me up as if I weigh nothing and holds me against him. In seconds we’re in his room and then I’m on his bed.
“Lie back.” It’s a soft command, but a command all the same. I scoot to the middle of the mattress and drop from my elbows as he pulls his belt free. Need rushes between my thighs and he watches me squirm. One button and then the next; by the time he frees his shirt and bares his chest, my clit is throbbing and I’m wet, so wet and panting with anticipation. His pants and boxer briefs follow. The man has no shame. He stands stock still, hand stroking his hard length as I take in my fill.
Holy Shit. He is a god among men. There’s nothing soft about him. His abdomen ripples with dips and shadows. A small smattering of hair frames his erection. And oh my, it’s—I swallow a lump—it’s more than I thought it could possibly be.
