Here’s a new #MostWantedMonday excerpt as we countdown to the January 7 release of Wanted by J. Kenner, book one in the Most Wanted series of erotic romances that wilI be followed by Heated in May and Ignited in September!
I hope you enjoy this week’s snippet!
“Evan.” My voice was barely a whisper, as if volume might push him out the door. “We both want it. I do, and I know you do, too.”
He stood up, then turned to look at me. I dragged the covers up to my neck, needing to keep at least part of me hidden. I’d already exposed too much of myself to him.
“Don’t you?” I pleaded when he said nothing. My voice was laced with a note of insecurity, and I hated myself for it. I watched the expressions shift across his face like clouds upon the wind, and fear slashed through me. “You’re not seriously going to stand there and tell me I’m wrong? I felt it, Evan. I felt you.”
His expression was flat, but his eyes were like a storm when they met mine. “I have done and will do a lot of things that you probably find reprehensible. But I will never, never, lie to you.”
I shook my head, confused and wary.
“Last night was a mistake,” he said, and with that single word, I understood everything. Whatever he’d seen in me—whatever he’d wanted—I’d managed to destroy it. I was dragonbait—some weak female who needed rescuing. But it wasn’t a princess that Evan Black wanted. It never had been.
“A mistake,” I repeated dully. I thought of the way I’d felt in his arms. The way I’d slept through the night. The way I’d felt whole for the first time in a very long time.
Yeah, maybe that was a mistake. Because he’d given me peace—and I damn sure didn’t deserve it.
