Catherine Wolffe – Desire’s Embrace

Desire’s Embrace by Catherine Wolffe

Morgan lost the rest of her sentence as her scent came to him like a siren calling his name.  Stepping toward her, he grappled with the beast for control.  The creature within him growled.  Morgan pulled her close, crushing her against his chest.  Laura’s eyes grew wide.  The kiss stole her breath as he molded his mouth over hers.  Rough and callous, he forced her lips open.  His tongue tangled with hers.  She tasted as sweet as honey.

Laura shoved.  A faint whimper escaped.  Struggling, she managed to reach up, raking her nails across his neck in one violent sweep.  The attack was like cold water sluicing over him.  Howling in pain, he fell back.  She stood, feet planted.  Fury etched her face.

“How dare you?”  Her words were breathless yet deadly calm.  “How dare you, sir.”  Her chest rose and fell with the effort.

Wiping the blood from his skin, Morgan stared as if for the first time.  A silence fell between them.  Morgan wheeled away.  The silence continued.  He glanced out the library window.  Needing a bit of time to harness the beast, he supposed.  Finally, composed once more he turned back.  “Forgive me.  I…I shouldn’t have done that.”  The jut to her jaw said she doubted his sincerity.  Why had he allowed the beast such leniency?  When she was near, Morgan couldn’t control his urges.  The beast reigned superior it seemed.  Rather than endure her stare of contempt any longer, Morgan sidestepped her and reached for the cigar box.  “I will not discuss my daughter with you unless the subject involves her lessons.  Is that clear?”

“Yes, sir.”

Striking the match, he lit the cigar.  His hands shook.  Inhaling Morgan waited until the trembling subsided before facing her again.  “In the future, Miss Sinclair, you’d be advised to stay out of things that aren’t any of your concern.  Is that clear?”  He peered at her over his smoke.

Laura nodded.  “Will that be all, sir?”  Glacial in tone, her words rang in his ears.

“Yes.”

Rigid and regal, she turned on a dime.  The cool click of the door’s latch echoed in the room as she disappeared into the hall.

Silently, he watched her go.  Her lovely backside swayed in cadence with the pounding of his heart.  “Damn it all to hell!”  Dumping the cigar into the coffee cup atop the desk, he leaned in on the walnut wood.  With his eyes closed, Morgan surmised he had a problem.  The beast raged within.  Morgan slammed his fists on the desk.  How would he manage to share an entire evening with her?  His ill-conceived idea would surely kill him.  Raking a hand through his hair, Morgan sought the whiskey bottle he kept beneath the interior wall of his desk.  He needed a drink.  Throwing the first one back, he pondered the dregs in his glass.  Perhaps David was right.  Miss Sinclair’s presence wasn’t helping his situation.  However, Sara was blooming into a bright and talented child with Miss Sinclair’s help.  Despite her burgeoning transformation, Laura was good for the girl.

“Do not grieve over that which is past.  The day dawns new with every sunrise – a gift for our pleasure.”

Romantic Gifts That Don’t Cost a Dime

So, have you got all your shopping done?  Are the presents all wrapped and under the tree?  Or, are you like me, waiting until the last minute and confused about what to get the people on your list?  Is the most confusing person your man?   Mine always says he likes what I’ve given him.  Yet, I wonder sometimes if I couldn’t have done more.

Sometimes the best gifts don’t come in a box with pretty paper and bows on them.  Sometimes it’s what you do that means more than anything.  Here’s a suggestion.

Why not plan a special evening with  just the two of you and take things nice and slow, or not!  Depending on how the evening progresses, you can tempt him with new and special pleasures he may not have seen before.  What you ask?  Well, use your imagination!  The tempting could start with you in a sexy new nightie or nothing but a bow.  Say he’s had a hard day and you meet him at the door with nothing on but a smile.  No man can resist such a treat.  Props for an evening of pleasure could include candles, sexy music, toys – you decide what works best.  The lights down low and maybe a toddy to settle his mind.  Are you and he into games?  Try out a new role play or simply talk dirty to him.  If it’s your first time with dirty talk, I promise he’ll be pleasantly surprised.  He’ll show you how much when you’re alone.  A man likes a woman to be his lady until the bedroom door is closed.  Then he wants a freak!  Don’t be shy – after all, he’s your man.  As they say, ‘What happens behind closed doors…or is that Vegas’?   The outcome can definitely remain your little secret.

Now, I know you have your own ideas, why not share?  I’d love to hear from you.  Keep the season simple and remember what’s important in a relationship – time spent together.  Enjoy and happy holidays.

As your boss, I must warn you that I’m not above ordering you to accompany me to lunch. We have much business to discuss.” The twinkle in his eyes, said he was making light of the statement, yet he held her hand in his without release. “Do indulge me this one time.” Leaning in, he smiled that crooked, totally scandalous smile he saved when he wanted to unnerve her completely.

Looking into a man’s eyes is extremely stimulating, don’t you think?  You can tell quickly what he’s thinking or if he’s even paying attention.  These three ‘wise men’ know the meaning of a steamy gaze.  Enjoy!
