Avery Cooper knows firsthand how love can destroy a person. She vowed to enjoy every moment of her second chance at life while keeping a wall around her heart. But a chance meeting with the ultra-dreamy, smooth talking Hunter Ciolek threatens her carefully constructed rules.
Werewolf Hunter Ciolek knew Avery was the woman for him the moment they met. He negotiated and seduced, befriended and pursued her. But nothing changed her mind about love. Now he’s got a new plan and only a few short weeks to make her see things his way.
Because living without her is not an option and this werewolf always gets what he wants.
Warning: One vamp who thinks she has everything she needs plus one once-in-a-lifetime gorgeous werewolf who will stop at nothing to win her equals a stunning romance packed with emotion and sizzling sex. You’ll never look at a yoga mat the same way again.
From the Prologue:
” “What’s put that smile on your lips?” he murmured.
He fumbled with the key card. She heard it hitting the door, obviously missing the slot. She
loved that she made him lose his cool because she gathered that this man was always carefully
restrained; in control of his body, his mind, and his surroundings.
For just a moment she wondered what it would be like to let him take control. To have his way
with her. She’d never let someone else in the driver’s seat…not since Robert.
But she wasn’t going to think of him now. Tonight was about sex. Lots and lots of hot, multiple-
orgasm sex. Delicious anticipation filled her and her smile widened. It was then that she realized
why she was smiling.
“You,” she told him.
He was the reason she felt so sexy and alive and on edge. He wasn’t anything she’d expected,
and for once, that was nice.
“You’ll have to tell me what I did so I can do it again.”
The door opened and they practically tumbled into the dark room. Her vision adjusted quickly,
but she only had eyes for him. He did a quick inspection of their surroundings over the top of
her head and as if satisfied that he was in the right place, or perhaps that there was no threat, he
turned her against the nearest wall and let the door slam shut behind them.
He kissed her throat, nipped her earlobe, then gently grazed his teeth over her chin before kissing
her lips again. How was it that he’d barely touched her and she felt so thoroughly aroused? Like
they’d engaged in hours of teasing foreplay?
Something about the way he touched her, the way their bodies fit together made her open her
mouth to speak up. Or maybe it was that alarm going off in the back of her mind.
“I only have one rule,” she murmured between kisses against his glorious chest.
She’d never had to issue her one and only rule aloud, but this man… There was something
different about him from all the men she’d been with and she couldn’t quite put her finger on it.
His quiet strength called to her. He had a laid back nature and a confidence that she wanted to
soak in. Everything about him made her want to wake up in his arms tomorrow and make plans
for the day after…
She’d been down that route before and it had destroyed her.
“One night only…” She nuzzled his neck and felt the thump of blood through his artery. Thanks
to Valencia, she’d never had to sip from the source. But right now, she wanted to. The urge was
nearly as strong as the need between her legs.
“How about we negotiate?”
She pulled back and looked up at him. He wanted more than one night?
“What are your terms?” She whispered the words, suddenly feeling out of her depth.
“I’m not good at sharing…” He coasted a possessive hand down her side. “So while you’re on
the island, you’re with me.”
He did that hip rotation thing again, reminding her of all the thick, powerful inches that could
give her one hell of a ride if only she said yes.
Who was she kidding? She was more than ready for him to rock her world.
“I can live with that,” she said and sealed their deal with a kiss. ”
