Happy Almost St. Patty’s Day
It’s #StarkOnSaturday again — and that means it’s time for other snippet from the upcoming Claim Me, book two in the Stark Trilogy that began with Release Me.
Soon we are in darkness, bathed only by the flickering orange of a single candle.
“Oh . . . ”
“Disappointed?” he asks.
“No,” I say. I feel my cheeks heat. “But I might have been a little intrigued.”
“Were you? I’ll have to remember that. But where were we? Oh, yes.” He eases onto the bed and kneels between my widespread legs. My breath comes in small gasps as he gently rests his hands on my thighs just above my knees, his thumbs on the soft inner skin. “Humiliation was next, I believe. Are you humiliated, Ms. Fairchild? You’re exposed to me, after all. Wide open like a blossoming flower and so very wet. You’re beautiful, Nikki,” he says, and I hear the raw passion in his voice. “But are you humiliated?”
I’ve turned my head to the side, because the truth is that I do feel exposed. Exposed and open and decadent and wild. I don’t, however, feel humiliated. On the contrary, I feel aroused. And I think it’s that odd combination of emotions that heats my cheeks with a ridiculous blush. “No,” I whisper.
“Look at me.”
I turn my head until I can see his eyes, the amber one shining in the candlelight, and the near-black one as dark as eternity.
“Not humiliated,” he says. “And not suffering, either, I assume?”
“Good.” His lips curve into a smile as his hands stroke my inner thighs, the pad of one thumb brushing ever so softly over the worst of my scars. “You are exceptional, Ms. Fairchild,” he says. “I could look at you forever. Lose myself in you forever.”
