A dark figure from her past has come back for her. Now Tristan will risk anything to protect Isabella . . . even if it costs him his life.
Excerpt from At His Mercy
“I know you feel it too.”
She swallowed hard. “Feel what?”
The air pulsed with excitement.
She should run now, but the spell he’d woven held her in its grasp. The ease in which he dominated her equally thrilled and terrified her, her heart knocking against her breastbone and her panties dampening from his power over her. This is what she’d wanted. What she’d craved. And yet, she couldn’t have prepared for it, the reality far more powerful than she could’ve ever imagined.
He glided a finger down her neck and across her collarbone, leaving a trail of goose bumps in its wake. “That energy buzzing through your body like a live current. You can’t manufacture that, Angel.” He dragged his finger lower, his eyes on hers as it descended between her breasts, and she held her breath, waiting to see where it would go next. “That’s what makes me the right partner.”
He took a step back, depriving her of his touch.
Like dangling bait on a hook, he’d given her a brief taste only to snatch it away before she could sink her teeth into it.
“So what happens now?” she asked, eager to feel his hands on her again.
A smile tugged at his lips. The man knew damned well what he was doing to her.
