SynopsisHis eyes as black as the the devils tongue His melodic voice more tempting than a siren’s call Three years ago, Camille Barker was held at knife point but her attacker wasn't the one who haunted her dreams. No, it was the man that stood a-washed in the yellow glow of the street light, his stare observant but heedless. A witness to the senseless act. The venom that dripped from his twisted lips saved Camille's life and set her soul ablaze. Reemerging from the ashes, she set upon the well worn path her parent’s always dreamed she would take. That is until rock n roller, Matthew Lee, shows her that you can only bask in the sun so long before the monsters come out to play.
ExcerptThe timer dinged on the oven and Matthew slipped on a pair of oven mitts. A golden brown quiche was set on the counter. He slipped a knife in the center then declared it satisfactory. If any of Matthew's fans were here to witness his domesticity, they would faint in delight. "Take a seat and I'll serve you," he said. I wanted him to serve me in a whole different way than he was offering. An image of him between my thighs putting his tongue to good use made me bite my lower lip to quell a moan. Matthew's eyes heated as his gaze dropped to my mouth. Sexual tension crackled in the air. Why was it the worst ideas were the most tempting? "You need to stop looking at me like that, Camille," Matthew warned. "Like what?" "Like you want me to fuck you on the edge of the dining room table." "It's a sturdy table." Faster than I could breathe, Matthew shrank the gap between us and crowded me against the counter. "We would cross boundaries that are better left uncrossed." "Why? You're single. I'm single. What's the problem? It's not like I'm asking for any kind of commitment." "You deserve commitment." Matthew's electrifying stare roamed my face. "You deserve the whole fucking world, but I'm not the kind of man who could give that to you." "What kind of man are you then?" His steel grey eyes changed to a frightening shade of black. "The kind you should stay away from." I sucked in a lungful of air as his thumb dragged across my lower lip. Need coiled tightly in my stomach. Lowering his head, Matthew brushed a featherlight kiss against my mouth. Reeling back, he spoke with remorse. "I'm sorry -- so incredibly sorry, Camille." I got the sense he wasn’t apologizing for leaving me high and dry. But what exactly he was apologizing for confounded me. Matthew kissed my forehead, turned around, and exited the kitchen. Seconds later, the front door clicked shut.
