And now for today's Sunday Smooch from her Knight In Shining Armour by Robyn Rychards ........
She may not need a knight in shining armour to save her, but that doesn’t mean she’s going to look a gift knight in the visor...
Paisley doesn’t need a knight in shining armour to rescue her from her high-powered, abusive ex-husband. She’s got it covered on her own: she's changed her name, liquidated her assets, and has a plan to disappearin the Rocky Mountain National Park.
Psychiatrist Sterling James has absolutely no intention of being anyone’s saviour. The only woman he has any time for is his sister. But circumstances change when Sterling finds Paisley in an unexpected and life-threatening situation. Brought in to the drama of her escape, Sterling finds himself invested, and he can't move on until he knows Paisley is going to be safe.
It should be a simple enough exercise to get Paisley out of the park and into her new life. But nothing is ever as simple as it should be, and Sterling soon discovers that even if her ex-husband buys the set-up, he might not be able to watch Paisley go...
With a sense of desperation,
Paisley grabbed at the
waistband of his pants with her good hand. The back of her fingers felt like
they were touching a flame as they rested against his hard abdomen. She held on
tight, her nails biting into the denim, afraid her knees were going to buckle
and she’d end up in a puddle at his feet. And no doubt that would draw the attention they were trying to avoid. It was
very disorienting to have their mouths the only parts of their bodies that were
pressed together. Disorienting and unbelievably sensual. It felt like through
his mouth he touched every other part of her in ways she’d never known she
could be touched.
Eventually, ending the contact with obvious reluctance, he rested his forehead on hers, their breathing labored. The park rangers were long gone and her pounding heart had nothing to do with the fear of being discovered.
‘Hot damn!’ he whispered before adding after a pause, ‘As much as I’m enjoying it, you’re going to have to take your hand out of my pants…’ Drawing away from her as soon as she quickly released him, he picked up the walking stick she had once again dropped. Handing it to her, his eyes burning with frustrated desire, he ran a tongue over his bottom lip and said, ‘Unbelievable.’ He gave his head a slight shake. ‘You sure are having a hard time holding on to that stick.’
Taking it from him, she bit back the suggestive remark that sprang to her lips. No sense adding fuel to a fire that needed to be put out. They had more important things to take care of right now. Though she couldn’t resist looking at him with raised brows and saying, ‘You do have a knack for making me feel that “f” word, Sterling.’
For those of you that hate camping, what is your worst experience and for those of you that love it, what is your best?
