Apparently
she’s a bit crazy.
Apparently
he’s the shrink who will cure her.
Apparently
they aren’t allowed to fall for each other at all…
Stacey Sinclair’s mother died in a gruesome car accident six years ago,
and now everybody thinks she is finally losing it. Surely a few crazy actions
on her part don’t justify her seeing a shrink for months on end?
For a psychologist, Dr Ivo Linder is too decent, too caring, and too
handsome to get a glimpse of what really goes on in her head. Stacey’s
unforeseen feelings towards him make her retaliate — she taunts him, never
expecting to fall with him into forbidden lust.
As their attraction intensifies, the old adage stands: it doesn’t
matter, as long as nobody finds out. But someone always finds out and when they
do, will Stacey and Ivo risk everything to give their love a chance?
Author’s Note: This book
contains graphic content and themes that might trigger some readers.

Excerpt
“Thank you for Friday night. And for taking me away.” For a
moment Stacey hovered, then she stepped up to him and pulled him close in a hug
that shouted nothing but gratitude.
“You’re welcome.” Ivo closed his arms around her, tightening
her female frame to him, relishing the last moment of having her like this. She
turned her face into his neck, her breathing softly caressing his skin, her
nose leading a delicate trail on which a sigh followed. Right there where his
pulse beat. Where her fingers had held him earlier. Held his heart.
The touch was so subtle, so gentle and pure, Ivo shut his
eyes, feeling himself slip. His hands, which until that moment had rested on
her back, inched lower, to the curve where back became butt. Stacey didn’t stir
but somehow came closer, her lips higher, her sweet scent more intense as he
inhaled against her temple.
It only took a slight turn of his head, an easy slide down
the most delicate of skin to capture her lips with his own. She didn’t hesitate
but kissed him back with equal unhurried intent, mooring against him, rising
with slow breaths against his body in a mimic of water in a quiet harbour. He
felt himself swell against her, his hands idling lower to where he could spread
his fingers, kiss his palms over her softest curves and anchor her to him.
Her breathing hitched as her fingers wove into his hair, and
he pressed her to him, knowing she’d feel him now, unable to stop himself. He
should stop, but instead he kissed her deeper, with wonderment at how intimate
the simple gesture seemed as she opened for him and their tongues slowly
intertwined, raking together his deep sexual desire for her, making him moan
into her mouth, which she echoed back.
Over the past few hours, their restraint had eroded bit by
bit and made way for this moment of unavoidable collision. And he caved into
it, into her warmth and heart. For deep down, he was starved.

“Stolen Wife” by Author Carina Blake, Genre: Romance Suspense w/ Dark Elements is Available Now! ~ #AuthorCarinaBlake @EJBookPromos


Title: Stolen Wife
Author: Carina Blake
Genre: Romance Suspense w/ Dark Elements
Release Date: June 30, 2020

 

I’ll do whatever it takes to get her in my arms, even kill my brother.
I’ll do everything in my power to destroy all who came between us.
The second I held the wedding photo of Giada with my brother, my revenge became tainted with possessiveness so profound that I grew colder. Calculating. Obsessed.
I’d do anything to get my desire. To taste her.
Giada is mine, and it didn’t matter the how or why, because she just is. I’ll play her name in my head—my sirens song—as I remove her from my brother’s grasp and take her for my own.
One by one, I’d get my vendetta on those who sent me away while claiming what was never theirs.

 

 

 

I wake up groggily with my head fuzzy, but from the looks of it unharmed. Maybe last night had all been a dream. Did I really dream about Santino kissing me? I’m glad Rafael didn’t come in and hear me if I did. I roll over onto my back when I hit a large frame. A frame much larger than Rafael’s. I reach out and feel a muscular chest. I open my eyes and see Santino with his elbow propping him up as he looks at me.

“Good morning.” The smile on his face almost makes me forget the danger we’re in.

“Good morning? Are you nuts? What are you doing in my bed? Rafael will kill you. Oh my goodness. I wasn’t dreaming.” My heart’s racing as fast as my mind is. I can already picture Rafael and his goons busting down the doors and shooting up the place on principle alone. Or maybe they’ll just torture us to death. I look into his eyes and all I see is mirth, which pisses me off as much as it turns me on.

“You thought you dreamed of me, baby?” He slides his hand over my hip and under my nightgown. My skin tingles from the gentle grip he exerts. God, how am I getting turned on?

It makes me mad how hot he is, and I become flustered with his touch. I shove his hand away and glare at him. “That’s not what I meant.”

“It doesn’t matter. You’re not in your bed at the compound. You’re in our bed in my home.”

“What?” I flip around and look. This isn’t my room. The room is made of clean lines, greyish-blue walls with a large television mounted to the wall. I’m confused and taken aback by this. Slamming my eyes shut, I take several deep breaths and then pinch myself.

“You’re not dreaming. I took you, and you’re here. End of story.” He sits up in the bed, and it’s the first time I notice that he’s ripped from his shoulders down to his…oh my goodness. He’s extremely hard right now. I turn to look away. “Are you hungry?”

“I’m not sure,” I respond with a barely audible whisper. My confusion has only grown. I stand to get some space between us and then it dawns on me that I’m not in my nightgown anymore. Instead, I’m in a big tee shirt with my hard nipples pressing against the letters.

“You took off my clothes? Are you trying to get us killed?” I cover my chest, like it does me any good. The man took off my clothes last night. Did he do anything else to me?

“I’m not afraid of any of them. And yes. Do you think I’d let you wear something my brother probably has fucked you in? I don’t want anything of his tainting my home.” I’m seeing a change in his mood. His temper’s slipping past that cool, calm, sexy façade. It’s as if my heart’s breaking, which makes absolutely no sense since I’ve never had a chance for love to come and tear it apart.

I glare at him and test his actions. I have to know who I’m dealing with. “Well, then, I should go, since I’m his.” He jumps off the bed and crosses the distance between us. Unable to stop myself, I flinch, waiting to feel the sting. He’s much larger than his brother and father, and I know this will hurt more, and not only physically.

“I’m not him and you’re not his,” he growls, dragging me with one arm around my waist and the other in my hair. His mouth slams down on mine. God, that kiss had been real. Before I can melt into him, he pushes off of me.

“That was wrong,” I say as I watch him get dressed. Santino slips on a white undershirt and a pair of grey dress slacks before sliding on a crisp white dress shirt.

He turns around to face me with the shirt still wide open. I’m amazed by the feral look in his eyes. From head to toe this man is perfection, but his mouth on mine was the most insanely sexy thing in the world I’ve ever experienced.

He stalks toward me, but this time I don’t flinch because I’m ridiculously hoping for another kiss. He tips my chin with his thick thumb, pulling my bottom lip from under the grip of my upper teeth. “Felt fucking right to me.” My body heats up and I breathily look up into his eyes that are trained to my lips, waiting for more. Instead, he steps back and says, “Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have a call to make. Please eat.” He points to the trays on the table that’s in the middle of the room.

“So you’re going to leave me up here locked away?” I ask, changing one cell for another.

“Damn right,” he growls, nodding his head as he grabs his phone and gun.

Excerpt
CHAPTER ONE
TIFFANY

 

 



It was the smirk that
did it. I hated smirkers.

 

 

I really fucking hated
them.

My best
friend
s brother was a smirker, and he
seemed to think he could pull it off, but Luke couldn
t. In fact, Luke Lancaster couldnt pull off a
holiday sweater, never mind a smirk, but that was just my opinion. Far as I
could tell, the prick had more female attention than even this guy.

 

 

And his
smirk? It suited him.
At the
Satan
’s Sinners’ clubhouse in West Orange, New
Jersey, I
d admit to feeling like a fish out
of water. Some of the girls from the country club had pretty much dared me to
come, and because I was a moron, I
d let them work
their wiles on me.
I wasnt even mad at them, more at myself. Peer pressure—whod have thought I was still vulnerable to it after school?
See, this
was why I liked Lily. Hell, no. Why I loved her. She was like the sister I
should have had. She got me and I got her. But she was on a tight leash—her dad
was as big of a prick as her brother—and that was why I
d decided to spend my Friday night in this dump, because she was stuck
hosting some stupid meal for her dick dad.
Well, okay,
dump was a strong word. The place was quite nice actually. Surprisingly so. And
the view? Sweet Lord in heaven, yeah, the view was more than worth it, even if
I didn
t know what I was sitting in—something
disgustingly sticky—tucked on a sofa beside a biker who looked like he was
preparing to get sucked off by a woman wearing very few items of clothing.
That would
be awkward.
Entertaining, maybe,
but mostly awkward.

 

I mean, Id watch. Id be nuts not to, wouldnt I? I had to watch. This entire thing felt as much like a social
experiment as part of the psychotherapy major I
d tossed down the drain. There were so many women with daddy issues
here, and so many men with god complexes that, six months ago, it would have
been my idea of a wet dream.
Now?
I wasnt sure whether to be amused or disgusted. Id already seen some chick popping pool balls out of her ass.
Yup, you
read that right.
I hadnt even known you could get two balls up there, but shed proven me wrong. Proven a couple of bikers wrong too—theyd taken bets on how many the poor bitch could shove up the brown eye.
Theyd evidently never learned anything about anatomy.
That she
could get a couple up there was a miracle—if you loosened your definition of
what a miracle was—but eight? Did they think her rectum was Mary Poppins
carpet bag?
Still, that
had been a humorous interlude, if a little disgusting, and I
d made a mental note to A, never play pool here.
B, use
Lysol on my entire body when I got home.
C, destroy this entire
outfit because there was way too much DNA on it.

 

Entertaining
though it was, the reason my friends had come here was to get laid by biker
dick.
More daddy
issues.
Apparently
being treated like a piece of ass was on their to-do list. Well, it wasn
’t on mine.
I had no
such issues. Dad might not be a saint, but he was cool. Cool enough to support
me as I tried to figure out what the fuck I was doing with my life after I
’d ‘messedthings up at
school, at any rate. And I didn
t need to get back
at him by being gangbanged by a bunch of bikers who wouldn
t understand the word respectif Aretha Franklin screamed it at them.
Of course,
all those thought processes went down before I saw him.
He had his
hand down some woman
s pants, and his smirk set fire to
my body in a way that made my eyelashes aroused.
My
fingernails tingled too.
Everything
about him screamed sex and sin. But even worse than that? He screamed a promise
fulfilled.
He would
give you sex and sin, but you
d love every
fucking minute of it.
To be continued
in Sin, the 3rd book in the Satan Sinners MC Series by Serena Akeroyd.
