Coming to Terms with Love by Dilys J. Carnie
Will her past destroy her future?
But when Beth meets this giant of a man her heart beats a little faster. But no man would look at her, and she has a son…a son who she will fight to keep.
He tries to fight the attraction, but can he resist this woman?
Corey can’t help falling in love deeper than he ever wanted to. And when an old enemy of Beth’s turns up on the doorstep he steps forward to put an end to her past.
Will this be the beginning of their future together or the end of their dreams?
The air was like a magnetic field, as if sparks were pinging around them in the air. She watched as he controlled himself, she admired the way he had not argued with her. Her own heart hammered against her ribs, it had been so close…so very close she couldn’t imagine the horror that would have been on his face if he had moved his hand any closer.
Beth tried to catch her own breath as she watched him in the moonlight. It seemed that every nerve ending in her body was tingling in a way she had never experienced before.
“I should apologize…only I’m not sorry,” he whispered in between the harshness of his breathing.
He looked at her and she trembled all over again. “Apologize for what? It was just a kiss.”
He stood straight moving closer to her making her take a step back.
“Just a kiss?”
“I…well a good kiss,” she stammered.
He laughed out loud. “Good? Be serious, Beth, you felt that as much as I did.” He took a step closer tilting her chin with his fingers. His gaze penetrated hers and she shook her head dislodging his fingers, taking a step back.
“Okay it was sensational…you’re a good kisser. So what? Plenty of men are.”
He sucked in a breath before he spoke.
“I touched you and the searing heat from you set me on fire, when we kissed your tongue wrapped itself round me so hard that I became part of you. The air around us is so charged that if someone dropped a match, it would explode.”
They were words she didn’t want to hear, she didn’t need him to tell her how it was for God’s sake she knew but…but there was no way in hell that she was ready for this. How could she expect someone else to accept her body when she was still coming to terms with it herself. The verve of the last few minutes started to leave her body and the realization of what had happened took over.
She knew he was waiting for her to say something; she wanted to try and be as honest as she could.
“You’re right, we did…connect but it can’t go any further than this…I don’t want it.”
“Baloney.” He pushed his hands into his pockets scowling at her. “The minute we set eyes on each other we knew what it would be like once we touched, why the hell did you think that I left so quickly the other day?”
