Hero: Liam Brodie. Former marine. Has a dominant side ready to claim his woman. He is good to his mama.
Heroine: Marine Talia Barnett. Has a secret submissive side. Is stubborn and has a shameful secret about her mama.
“Liam.” Her voice was breathless, pleading.
He lifted his head just long enough to kiss her parted lips. “What, baby?”
“Mmmmm.” She all but melted in his arms, rubbing against him in a sexy undulation.
“You want more?” His fingers plucked at a ripe nipple, making her shiver. There was so much he wanted to do to her, but he forced himself to go slow for the moment.
“Yes, more,” she whispered between kisses.
“Then be a good girl and stay really still for me.”
That stopped her. She blinked at him through hazy eyes but did as he said, despite the uncertainty in her expression. He rewarded her with another deep kiss, letting the hand playing with her nipple glide lower, over the smooth curve of her belly until his fingers found the lacy edge of her panties. Talia murmured into his mouth and began to part her legs.
He firmed his hold across her back and squeezed in warning, asserting his command over her. “I said, stay still.”
She froze in surprise. He watched the dawning comprehension fill her eyes, followed by a flare of molten heat. Yeah, that glimpse of his dominant side had turned her on. The knowledge made his dick throb in agony. He’d hold his baser nature back for now until he was certain he’d taken care of her needs. But oh, the things he wanted to do to her. Blindfolds and bindings. Talia tied up and at his mercy while he learned exactly what it took to bring her to the edge of release before making her shatter in his arms.
“You’re so beautiful,” he told her, savoring the satiny skin beneath his fingertips and the little goose bumps his touch raised. He trailed his fingers over her hipbone, down her thigh and back up the inside, eventually grazing the soft lace covering her mound. It was already damp, the muscles in her legs tensed in anticipation. He wanted to rip the sexy underwear off her, slide his tongue into her slick flesh and make her sob in ecstasy as she came against his mouth.
He fought the urge back. She wasn’t ready for that yet. He had to earn her trust this way first, give her his gentleness after all she’d been through.
“Put your hands on my shoulders and leave them there,” he ordered roughly, unable to hide his own desire.
Watching his face, she slowly curled her hands around his shoulders, the flare of arousal in her eyes making him even hotter. She licked her lips, a sign of her nervousness. “What are you going to do?”
What I’ve wanted to do to you for almost two years.
