We’re baaaaaaack! #StarkOnSaturday is starting up again as we count-down to the release of Complete Me!
And thanks so much to everyone who has put Release Me back on the USA Today bestseller list (it’s in its 11th week!) and has kept Claim Me on both the New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists for the three weeks that it’s been on shelves. Y’all rock!
I recently discovered White Collar (really fun show!), so to add a little flair to this week’s excerpt, I’m including some Matt Bomer eye candy. (He could totally play Damien.)
And now, without further ado, here’s a snippet from the upcoming Complete Me, book three in the Stark Trilogy that began with with Release Me, continued with Claim Me, and will conclude with Complete Me!
I squeeze my eyes shut, and fresh tears spill out over my lashes.
The pad of his thumb brushes my cheek.
“No,” I say, but I mean yes, and when I open my eyes I can see that he knows it. He moves closer to me, and my breath hitches. I hiccup a little, tasting tears as his mouth closes over mine. The kiss is soft at first, gentle and sweet. Then his hand cups the back of my head even as his other arm snakes around my waist and tugs me onto his lap.
I gasp with surprise at the movement, and he takes advantage, his mouth hardening, his tongue finding mine, his kiss becoming deeper and more demanding. I twine my fingers through his silky hair and lose myself in the sensual firmness of his mouth. In the wildness of this kiss. Our tongues meeting, our teeth clashing. My mouth will be bruised in the morning, but I cannot resist this kiss that is setting us both on fire.
I am breathing hard when he finally pulls away. My lips feel swollen and used and spectacular. I wonder if I’ve ever truly been kissed before, even by Damien. And right then, all I want is more.
I lean toward him in silent demand, but he catches me with a firm hand under my chin. I stay there, my position awkward, my eyes lifted to his.
“You are my everything, Nikki. You have to know that. You have to believe it.”
“I do,” I whisper. I see the tremor run through his body, then the way his muscles tighten as he pulls me tight against him and holds me close. I melt into his arms, so in love with this man that it almost hurts.
