After Kaidan saves Hayley from a run-in with the aggressive paparazzi, sparks fly, and she discovers the heirloom is in his California mansion. It’s the answer to all her problems…but she’ll have to betray Kaidan to get it.
Kaidan pushes me harder into the wall and buries his face in my hair, inhaling the scent of me. He lays his lips against my ear.
“Do I need to teach you a lesson?” His voice is dripping with lust, and every place on my body where he’s touching me radiates heat.
I want to tell him to get off me… He’s a jerk. But that’s not what comes out of my mouth. “It depends what kind of lesson you think I need.”
With one swift movement he twists me around so my back is against the wall. I can barely see him in the dark, but when his lips meet mine, I close my eyes and sink into the warmth of them. He kisses me hard, with a hunger he didn’t have before, plunging his tongue into my mouth, forcing it past my lips.
My heart’s threatening to leap from my chest as I give in, kissing him back. As soon as I do, he pulls back, leaving my mouth hot, bruised.
His hand moves to my lower back, and he pulls me closer, pushing my body into his.
Common sense tries to surface, but I push it back down. So what if Mr. Lust List #1 wants to use me and throw me away? I can use him right back. Can’t I?
Kaidan’s eyes glint in the dim light, dark with lust. He kisses me again, slower now, softening his hold on me.
Someone giggles from the end of the hall, and Kaidan pulls away from me, listening. There are two voices, two people stumbling through the dark.
Kaidan reaches around me, to the door at my back, and opens it. He leads me through the open door, and an excited ache radiates through my stomach, makes me sick with wanting and expectation.
He pulls me into the dark room beyond.
