EXCERPT - PLEASE PICK ONE FROM THE TWO BELOW
Grabbing her roughly by the arm, he hauled her back until she was flush
against him, her back to his front. Grinding his erection into her ass, he
lowered his lips to her ear. "You think you can push me like that and I won’t
respond?" He taunted, nipping her ear painfully. She let out a low moan, her
body beginning to betray her.
"You’re mine. I won’t share you, and I’ll be damned if I let anything happen to
you, Gwyn. The sooner you get it through your head that I own you now, the
better." His hand trailed down her body, cupping her aching pussy through
her shorts. Feeling her heat, he groaned. Dragging them backwards, he hit
one of the tall trees, his hands coming up to brace her shoulders.
"Brady, please," she begged. Her body was a slow fire, desire taking over
every part of her being. This man and his fierce possessiveness of her
awakened a darkness in her she didn’t know existed. He pinched her nipples
roughly through her thin shirt, her back arching against him.
"You want my cock, sugar? Right here out in the open?"
Looking into his eyes, she was terrified by what she saw there. There was no soul in him, he truly was a man with no morals, no compassion. His grin was filled with malice, there was no mistaking his intentions. Why the hell had she been so stupid to fall for his act? Fuck Hailey, one smile. One smile from him and look where it got you. Strung up on a hook like a motherfucking piece of meat!
"Darlin, just look at you. Quite the perfect picture you make. Why, you look like a feast. My feast." At his words, Hailey froze, halting in her attempts to swing herself off the hook her bounds hands were attached to.
"Feast? I’m not your fucking feast, you asshole! Let me down from here," her protests fell on deaf ears. Ignoring her pleas, he slowly approached.
Leaning in close, he brought his nose within an inch of hers. Close enough to touch, however he just breathed in her scent, staring into her eyes menacingly. "Get away from me, you prick. If you touch me, I swear, I’ll reach down your throat grab your balls and yank them up through your nose. Do. Not. Touch. Me!" Jerking away, she glared at him with fire in her eyes. He looked amused by her outburst, not the least bit frightened or intimidated.
"Sugar, there’s an expression...maybe you’ve heard it. Makes your blood run cold. You know, I’ve been on a mission, trying to find cold blood that runs out from a warm body." Frowning, he turned the knife over in his hands, studying the blade. "Unfortunately, I haven’t had much luck. But you," he pointed at her with the knife. "You might be the one I’ve been looking for. Let’s find out shall we?"
