Christian March is a man with nothing to lose. Working as a private detective, he passes his days with gambling and shady jobs, lamenting the loss of his wife in an accident he feels was his fault. With debts piling up and his dark past threatening to close all around him, Christian finds himself slipping down a one way path of desperation. It seemed like providence when Victor Tam, wealthy land developer and controversial figure, contacts Christian about a blackmail problem he’s contending with. Everyone knows that Victor pays well to deal with his problems but when the offer is too good to be true the motivations become less clear. Is Victor truly an innocent victim? Or does he have a nefarious plan that could lead Christian down a path of spiritual damnation?
“This is as far from innocent as love is from hate.” Angelique pressed closer to me and her lips barely brushed against mine with every sharp syllable. “This is the point that you find out just what a soul is worth and what lengths some of us will go through to get them.”
The kiss was electric. Her lips pressed hard against mine and her tongue forced my mouth open, starving to explore. Every nerve ending in my body betrayed the voice in my head that was shouting to stop her. I put my hands on her shoulders, but instead of pushing away, I held her tightly.
I joined her in the savage kiss, grunting as her hand began to stroke me hard through my pants. My loins were on fire, my heart beating flaming signals throughout my limbs that all cried out to take her on the floor. There was no love to be made—just an animal hunger for sex, a desire to taste every inch of her skin to a wild glorious climax.
Angelique got rougher.
