From Chapter 2
I turned a small circle, taking in the apartment. I'd lived here for years and it'd been fine. I was comfortable and content. Now, without Charli, it seemed empty and too quiet. She'd been gone for less than an hour and I missed her...well, everything about her. I walked back to the bedroom to gather a few clothes.
Her damn vibrator was still on the bed. It was bad enough that someone had been in our apartment. I couldn't leave it there for Deloris or her team to dust. I lifted the purple silicone covered shaft. It was curved and smooth. My thoughts went to the delicious ways I could use it on Charli. I imagined her moans and screams as I pushed the buttons. There was a music option that would allow the device to respond to my voice. She should be in my bed—in our bed—and with words and this stupid toy should be taking her to new heights.
The room came into focus, but I wasn't seeing what was really there.
I was seeing what wasn't.
Charli's delicate hands were bound with an intricate winding of satin and secured above her head piled high with her beautiful hair as stray curls surrounded her face, the auburn wisps contrasting her flushed complexion. My chest heaved as her sexy body was displayed—each curve, each angle—for my optimum viewing pleasure. In my imagination she was nude, except for the black shoes she'd worn to Mobar, the same shoes that had adorned the dashboard of the Boxster. Her ankles were untethered, bound only by my instructions. Her legs were spread, slightly bent, with her knees out and the heels of her sexy shoes threatening to penetrate the soft Egyptian threaded sheets. As the humming vibrations rippled through the air, her body trembled in anticipation, and she stifled a whimper.
I loved the way she squirmed as she fought between maintaining the position I demanded and her body's natural reactions.
My lips quirked as I added a satin blindfold to my fantasy. It was something we'd never done, but then again, we'd never played with her vibrator either. Without sight, her senses would be heightened. The quiet hum would be louder, a roar in the otherwise silence of our room. My words would be amplified, sending shockwaves from her ears to her core that clenched with unmet need.
I'd tease her unmercifully giving her small tastes of what was to come... "Lennox, I have my team on their way."
Deloris's voice from the living room pulled me from my fantasy as reality fell hard upon my shoulders.
DECEPTION, book THREE of FIVE in Aleatha Romig's INFIDELITY series.
"Infidelity - it isn't what you think"
It all began in Del Mar, a chance meeting with a single rule--one week only.
Or did it?
Lennox ‘Nox’ Demetri and Alexandria ‘Charli’ Collins had every intention of following their agreement but rules are made to be broken. In CUNNING they are reunited with Nox setting down new rules for the game and Charli having no choice but to follow them.
Now, once again, the game has changed. Nox and Charli’s hot sensual encounter has grown into something more but it is threatened with secrets and regrets. Is it their love and intense sexual chemistry that’s pushing them together or something darker, a puppetmaster behind the scenes pulling the strings on their love affair?
Shadowy villains lurk around each corner and everyone is suspect as Nox’s and Charli's pasts collide with the present and threaten to compel them back to their predestined fates.
Can deals brokered in the past be negated by something as pure as love and as steamy as the attraction shared by Nox and Charli? Or was it all a deception—starting with that very first meeting?
From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Aleatha Romig comes a sexy, new dominant hero who knows what he wants and a strong-willed heroine who has plans of her own.
