I’m just a human, standing in front of the devil…
…trying not to succumb to my darkest desires.
The truth is, all a girl really needs is chocolate and a lifetime supply of AA batteries.
Well, that and revenge on the ex that destroyed my career as an investigative journalist.
Which is why the devilishly handsome dark angel that saved my life is nothing more than a means to an end. Getting close to him will resurrect my career.
But when he looks at me like I’m his greatest desire, I can’t resist the temptation of knowing what forbidden fruit like him would taste like.
After all, I’ve learned my lesson. This time it’s just pleasure, no attachment.
Because men like him were made to break hearts, and mine can’t afford anymore cracks.
Warning: This book has a wounded bad boy billionaire, a feisty heroine, steamy public displays of affection and a HOT HEA. If that’s your romance poison, then you may have to stay up all night to finish Devil’s Temptation. (This is a full-length novel with a dual first person POV and a guaranteed HEA. Recommended for mature audiences.)
Only 99¢ for a limited time!
“Just let me go home and forget this whole night ever happened!”
“I don’t want you to go,” Nathan said.
“And why not? You want to ask me for another favor?”
“Because right now the only thing I want is–”
“I want you to stay, Tessa! And not because I want a favor.”
I swallowed because his voice wasn’t angry or demanding. It was panicked, almost desperate as if he needed me to understand.
“Why then?” I asked, more calmly.
He closed the small distance between us, the heat of his body grazing over mine. Flecks of gold ignited in his eyes, sending my blood pounding through my veins.
“I want you, Tessa.”
“Me?” I tried to keep some kind of distance in my voice, a kernel of disbelief. But it was hard when Nathan was looking like he wanted to devour me.
“I’ve wanted you from the first moment I laid eyes on you,” he breathed. “I think of you all day and night. I imagine what it would be like to kiss you, taste you. I get lost in those thoughts and I never want to leave. Wanting you…it’s consuming me.”
He was running his hands up my arms while he spoke, his fingers trailing heat in their wake. I couldn’t breathe hearing him talk like that, it was too much to hope that he felt so much for me.
“Tell me you want me, too.”
I’d never heard Nathan plead before, and I had a feeling I was one of the few.
My eyes skated over his face, fingers following the trail of my gaze. He closed his eyes, savoring my touch.
“I want you,” I breathed. “Nathan–”
His lips captured mine in a kiss that seared my soul, spreading a fire under my skin that would devour me, and I didn’t care. My hands found their way into his hair as his arms crushed my body to his. My tongue plundered his mouth, waking the sleeping hunger deep inside. I needed him so badly that my entire body ached for more of his hands, his mouth.
Just as I was about to hook my leg over his hip and climb him like a fucking tree, Nathan broke off the kiss and tugged me toward the private elevator waiting for us.
As soon as we were inside, he backed me against the wall, hand fisting in my hair and mouth slamming onto mine. I tugged on the ends of his shirt and shoved my hands underneath. My fingers ran greedily over the hard planes of his stomach and chest. He felt so damn good, better than I had imagined, and now I wanted to know what that hard chest would feel like on top of me, pressing me into his mattress as he fucked me.
Nathan’s lips bit their way down my throat and I let loose a moan.
“I’ve never done this in an elevator before,” I breathed.
The grin he delivered shot heat straight to my groin.
“Next time I’ll bend you over and take you right here, but this time, I want you on my bed.”
“You have imagined this, haven’t you?”
“Oh Tessa, you have no idea.”
