Here’s a fun sneak peek into my new book Sweet Serendipity
Running from a past that threatens to haunt her for the rest of her life, Rayne Carrington finds herself in Eden’s Ridge by chance. She promptly makes the tiny, serene town her home and finally finds some semblance of peace. Six months later, she encounters a dangerously alluring stranger, who turns her world upside down with his mere presence. Soon she is caught in a web of temptation that is too overpowering to deny. But how does she handle a man who is hell bent on resisting her at all cost?
Christian Stockwell returned to his hometown of Eden’s Ridge, to find a beautiful stranger living under his roof. He is instantly bewitched by her loveliness but he knows that he cannot allow himself to have her. He struggles to rein in the lust he feels for her but how long will he be able to resist such sweetness? It won’t be long before he must surrender to sweet serendipity.
Rayne’s blood caught fire in her veins as she imagined herself naked before Christian, bared to the sizzling heat of his dangerously dark eyes. Heat gathered between her legs, her core leaking embarrassingly to soak her panties. She shook her head forcefully, striving to displace the errant thoughts racing through her brain and igniting her senses. She so needed to get out of that kitchen and escape to the confines of her own quarters.
She hurried through her task and soon she was rinsing the last plate. At that moment, the air behind her suddenly became charged, causing the hairs on the back of her neck to bristle immediately. She didn’t need to turn around to know Christian was behind her. She could sense him there, so close that the heat of his incredibly sexy body radiated onto her back. Rayne shut the tap off and slowly turned around, her breath catching in her throat at the utter carnality adorning his gorgeous countenance. Her tongue darted out to lick her extremely dry lips.
Without a word, Christian bent his head and captured her lips with his, dragging her to him simultaneously. Before her brain could register what was happening, her lips parted to allow his tongue access to her mouth. He delved inside, plundering, assaulting, making her moan. She tilted her head further back and allowed him better access to take what he wanted from her all-too-willing mouth.
Reaching up, his fingers tangled in her hair, pinning her head in place as he sucked on her bottom lip then nipped at it with little bites that sent shivers running up and down her spine. Rayne groaned as her panties became even wetter, her hands finding their way into his soft, spiky hair.
The kiss seemed to go on for eternity and when he finally pulled away, her lips felt blistered and both their breathing was ragged and out of time. With a soft cry, Christian lowered his head to nip at her neck, sucking on it before his tongue laved over the tender spot, gentle and soothing. Rayne whimpered as his hot mouth traveled even lower, planting rough kisses and little bites on her shoulder, then dipping to drag one of her nipples in through the soft fabric of her tank top.
Throwing her head back, she cried out, thrusting her breasts up into his mouth and leaning against the sink for support. Christian continued to toy with her breasts, alternately nipping and sucking on the fabric-covered flesh of one before addressing the other. His callused hands caressed the length of her arms before coming to rest on her narrow waist, dragging her hips roughly to him so she could feel the hard steel of his impressive cock against her belly.
Rayne’s body caught fire. The heat in her stomach was deliciously unbearable. There was an all-consuming ache between her legs that was akin to nothing she had ever experienced before. When Christian’s hand came around to squeeze her ass and press her even more firmly to his rigid cock, her knees buckled and she had to grip the counter top for support.
Moaning in despair, Rayne writhed against his body when finally he abandoned his onslaught on her breasts to drag his head back up, capturing her lips again. This time the kiss was even more punishing, almost bruising. His tongue dominated her mouth and she didn’t even have the will to protest.
Abruptly Christian broke the kiss, groaning in obvious torment against her ear. “Fuck!” He growled, squeezing his eyes shut, although he continued to hold her and brought his forehead down to rest against hers. His breathing was labored and Rayne could feel his hands shaking slightly as he held onto her tightly.
Words failed her as she stood in his arms, savoring the feel of his cock pressed against her stomach and fighting the urge to beg him to impale her with it. As irrational as it was, she was past caring about what was happening or why. All she knew was that it felt absolutely fantastic to be held by his strong arms this way and she wanted more.
With uncharacteristic boldness, Rayne reached out and took him into her hand, marveling at the feel of him, amazed by how well he filled her palm. She ran her hand along his length inside the restricting jeans and reveled in the throaty moans her touch elicited from him.
“That what you want?” His voice was hard, gravelly. The barely leashed hunger reflected in his eyes reduced her to a quivering mass of aching need.
“Y–Yes. Oh God h–help me, yes.” Her stuttered response should have embarrassed her but it didn’t. There was no sense in denying it—she did want him, was desperate for him.
“Want me to rip your clothes off and fuck you right here, right now?”
His words were barely a whisper but their potency was still devastating, causing Rayne to whimper in agony, her need mounting to almost painful proportions. “Mmm…please. Please, I…I’m so…”
Suddenly Christian’s eyes became hard and cold, the undeniable lust in their depths now overshadowed by flagrant hostility. “You should push me away, Rayne. Push me away from you now, tell me to stop,” he grated almost angrily, and she stiffened in surprise.
