This week’s selection comes from the July release in my Hot Nights in St. Blaise series – Roman Candles.
“God, I forgot,” she panted. “I forgot how good this feels.”
The chant came out in a rolling purr. Her hair trailed down her back and slipped over her shoulders as she rolled her neck and began to rock slowly. Too slowly.
“Touch me,” she whispered. “I need to be touched.”
She didn’t have to ask him twice.
Pediatrician Mario Debrizzio is a single woman’s dream come true. He’s successful and confident, owns a gorgeous old home that cries out for a family, and is as talented in the kitchen as he is in the bedroom.
But when he loses his cool on the job, Dr. Debrizzio finds himself front and center with SBRMC’s chief headshrinker. Dr. Sophie Bernard is more than pleasant to look at, but the last thing he wants is to let the woman who has already messed with his head poking around in there.
No amount of distance can keep Dr. Sophie Bernard safe from the memory of the scorching kiss she and Mario shared at the SBRMC Christmas party. The man was hot as a firecracker and every bit as dangerous. She was also married at the time…technically.
Long after her divorce is final, Sophie fights the attraction. But when Mario holds a flame to her fuse, her fear and frustration explodes into a passion that burns up the hot summer night.
