Excerpt:

 

Hailey forced herself to stand still for his leisurely perusal. Even when he stood and stalked toward her, she managed to hold on to her dignitywhatever dregs she had left after donning these clothes and almost falling on her face. But his smile hit her like a blast of heat, blinding her, scalding her. He looked far too pleased with himself, like a man about to get everything he wanted. And her shaky insides warned she might just give it to him.

What do you mean?she asked, proud her voice didnt quaver too much.

You want to stay here while were in Chicago,he said. To stay here for three days, to blend in so that no one questions why youre here. To ask questions, poke around.

Yes, that was exactly what she wanted. So why did her nod feel like surrender? As if shed agreed to his terms before she even knew them. But then maybe she did know what his terms would be. His eyes spoke the words his lips had yet to say. There were volumes of gold-flecked pages filled with all that sensual knowledge. They promised delight and, even better, a hard bite to the exchange. Where the men she had been with were a fresh spring breeze, he stood before her like the calm before the storm, his eyes darkening clouds.

Can you…” She licked her lips. His gaze tracked the movement, making her feel hunted. Can you help me?

His expression softened. Just the slightest degree, but it was enough to slow the hammering of her heart. This was the same kind man shed met in the lobby. Desire had given him a rough edge, turning his loping gait into a prowl, making his nostrils flarescenting her. But he was still kind inside.

When he didnt answer, she searched for whatever strength she might have found. You wanthed said, listing her terms. Only his terms were left to be stated. A negotiation, then. But even as she thought the words, an image flashed through her mind, a gazelle caught from behind, the vicious beauty of her captor feasting in a National Geographic special.

What do you want?she whispered, and somehow the wall was at her back. He was at her frontcrowding herembracing her?

You,he snarled. Under me. Over me. On your knees in front of me. I get full artistic license to your body for three days.

His words pounded her like hail, leaving dents and then pooling in the hollows left behind. They drowned out the rest of the world and shook the floor. She began to shake toobut her gaze remained locked with his. The shaking was on the inside, fear and a strange longing warring inside her, a battle to the death. She stood frozen, caught in his sights and too terrified to run. Too curious to walk away.

He stepped back, sending a wash of crisp hotel air over her body. She sucked in a breath and immediately missed the earthy scent of him.

And you,he continued conversationally, will have total access to play Nancy Drew in the hotel. That is, whenever Im not using you.

Her body lit up when he said the word using. It imploded on you, spoken with such self-assured possession. What was wrong with her that she wanted to be used? Maybe because she wanted to be free to enjoy sex, to really explore it, for the first time in her tame little life. Maybe because he would be the one using her, and he seemed like he would know just what to do with her.

This was a bad idea. For reasons that werent quite coming to her at the moment. But she knew it was bad. If shed said it once, shed said it a thousand times to her preschoolers: dont make decisions when youre angry. Though she wasnt angry. She was concerned. And frustrated. And

God, Chloe, why? After I worked so freaking hard so you could start college, why couldnt you be more careful?

Okay, she might be angry.

She swallowed. So maybe this weekend could be for her too. She would find the babys father, but shed also find something for herself.

With a deep breath, she struggled for levity. A lopsided tilt of her lips was all she could manage. Where do I sign?she joked.

His grin widened, revealing an even row of white teeth. The Cheshire cat had just such a smile. Im so glad you asked. I have blank copies of my contract in the side table. Right next to the lube.
