One seriously sexy son-of-a-duke . . .
Behind the posh British accent, Dylan Hale possesses a down-and-dirty sexiness. Off-the-charts gorgeous, a ruthless architect . . . and did I mention he's a future duke? Every time we touch, it's wildfire. All need and lust and heat. But Dylan has rules: just sex, no one can know, and in the bedroom he gets complete control. All I have to do is follow the rules, because falling in love with Dylan Hale is all it would take to screw everything up . . . royally.
Buy the Book
Let me start off saying I loved the book. The writing was great and the plot was a seriously gripping one. I hated putting the book down. The characters were so very complex. They were so hard to really pin down and man did I love that! Lydia was my favorite. She was head strong and I thought the book was leading in a different direction with her. I liked how her character handled things. She wasn't all knowing and super genious smart at knowing how to handle her life. She was real and passionate. Her responses and emotions made her feel like a person I was living the book with. Dylan was such a deep vat of unknown. I truly didn't know what to make of him and because I didn't have all of his pieces I halfway didn't like him because of how he treated Lydia. Granted he SAID he had good reason but I was so emotionally involved with this book I just could not see it. I will leave it to other readers to decide if he had a fair reason or not. I absolutely love his depths. He was so powerful and with an almost dangerous aura he could easily tip the scales of this book into romantic thriller. The book has closure of sorts but does end on a cliffhangar. It isn't one that will make a reader run screaming into the streets, but it certainly leaves us craving more! I can not WAIT!
We weren’t a foot inside when he closed the door behind him and said, “Turn around, damsel,” indicating I should face away from him. I complied, and he slowly came up behind me, running his hands along my bare upper back and down my arms. He unzipped the dress and pulled it off my shoulders so it pooled at my feet. I was naked except for my insanely high heels. Grabbing my hips, he pulled my naked ass into his front, and I could feel his hardness pushing against the seam of his trousers. “Can you feel how much I want you? How much I want this?” he said firmly, increasing his grip on my hips, pulling me even closer.
I tilted my head back and to the side to try to steal a glimpse of him, and he rested his chin on my shoulder. His hands wrapped around and palmed my breasts. He pushed them in and up, molding them in his palms, and he began to tug at my nipples, rolling them between his thumb and finger, teasing them to the point where pain met pleasure.
“I’m breaking all sorts of rules for you, aren’t I?” He was kissing my neck, sucking my skin, nipping it gently between his teeth, devouring me in motions that mimicked what he was doing to my breasts.
“What rules have you broken for me?” I asked, practically whispering, searching for steadiness in my breath.
He spun me around and lifted me by my ass in one swift move. I locked my ankles behind his back. “For starters I rarely sleep with the same woman twice, at least not in the same week. I don’t spend the night. Ever. And neither do the women I see. And I don’t invite women into my office. Ever. But I couldn’t resist with you. I’d been dreaming about having my mouth on that pretty pussy on that table for weeks. Picturing you just as you were.”
“Did it live up to the dream?” I nuzzled into his cheek, desperate to get to a place where he was naked, where I could feel his skin on my skin.
“The dream didn’t stand a chance.”
“Well, I wouldn’t want you breaking any of your rules, would I? I mean, maybe we better stop now, and you could sleep on my sofa. Or you can get back on your horse—”
“Not on your life, smartass.”
