Blurb -

After being abducted, Sarah has no choice but to put her life in the hands of a tough, diehard mercenary. She dislikes Clint from the start, but she can't deny her secret attraction to his muscular, battle-scarred body or the look of hunger in his dark eyes.

Clint knows as soon as Sarah blasts him with her venomous tongue that he's in deep trouble. Problem is, the woman has enough curves to tempt a saint--something he's never claimed to be….

Excerpt -

When Clint didn’t move right away, Sarah closed her eyes so she wouldn’t have to look at him. His closeness was unnerving, catching her off guard when she realized how much she liked his weight against her. However, closing her eyes turned out to be a bigger mistake when all it did was enhance the charged atmosphere between them.

Her ears picked up the low drone of the helicopter as it moved further away, but her senses were acutely aware of Clint. His breath was against her face, hot and intimate, his heart beating against her chest keeping rhythm with another more vital part of his body. When his arousal jumped against her she began to respond to the situation against her will.

Her breasts became ultra-sensitive, swelling against his chest as her nipples hardened into tight little nubs. In her mind’s eye Sarah could see his mouth on her, licking and tugging on them until she was breathless and on fire. As her breathing became shallow, she closed her legs to the liquid heat pooling there, denying its existence along with the hard shaft she’d unknowingly trapped there.

Oh God! What was happening to her? An explosive rush swept through her blood. She kept her eyes closed, desperate to ignore the changes in her body, trying to ignore that it was a man like Clint--callous, raw, and totally unlovable--who was turning her on to such a feverish pitch. She struggled to bring her breathing under control, embarrassed when a soft whimper broke the silence instead.

“Open your eyes,” he demanded in a voice hoarse with desire.

“No.” The way Sarah figured it, if she didn’t look at him, nothing would happen. He couldn’t possible know she was so turned on she was burning up with it.

“I’m going to kiss you.”It sounded like a threat.Her eyes flew open.

“No!” The firmness she tried to inject into her tone came out weak and throaty, revealing her condition.The savage expression on his face frightened her but not nearly as much as the untamed wildfire racing through her body. His body began to move against her, his hardness fitting perfectly in the damp crevice between her legs. The ache in the lower half of her body became a tangible, almost painful reminder that she hadn’t made love in a long time. Too long.

“No? Are you sure about that, angel?”

“Yes,” she gasped, mesmerized by the smoldering look in his eyes. “I don’t think it’s wise to complicate things.” Not to mention she was scared out of her wits that she’d enjoy it. She’d never hear the end of it.

“A little kiss doesn’t have to complicate anything,” he returned with a wolfish grin.

He was actually teasing her--or was he testing her? “We both know that’s not all you have on your mind,” she pointed out.

“No. But that’s all we have time for.”

Her eyes flared with alarm when he slowly lowered his head. His movement was misleading. Sarah knew there’d be no gentleness in his possession.

Trying one last time, she made a desperate attempt to deny him what he wanted by turning her head wildly from side to side, but there was no escape. He tangled his hands in her hair to hold her head still.

“No!” she whispered with growing panic in her tone.

“Yes!” he hissed back, moving in closer...
