I was excited to start his book as it goes back in time. Victoria is thrown back in time as you know from the blurb. She tries to convince her husband that she is not his wife. He doesn’t believe her and even dislikes his wife. Has no feelings what so ever. When she starts to fall for Nichoals. He has been trying to find her for weeks and doesn’t believe a thing she has to say or do. They both start to fall for each other can they make this work before it is too late?
Despite the way he unnerved her, it was impossible to avoid noting how wonderful he smelled. It was aspicy, potently male scent. Deep inside her, a voice cried out for her to press her fingers against hisbeautiful mouth. The thought made Victoria suck in a quick, sharp breath of air. Nicholas’ eyes darkenedwith an emotion she didn’t even want to consider defining.
Slowly, he lowered his head until his mouth lightly touched hers. Fire streaked across her skin, its
warmth sinking into her pores until it heated her blood like molten lava. She sighed then parted her
mouth to lace his lips with the tip of her tongue. A dark sound rumbled in his chest as his tongue swept
its way into her mouth and imitated an act her body suddenly craved as if she were starving.
Pleasure swept its way through her. The fiery sensation of it settled into every inch of her body. He said
she’d bewitched him, but she was the one under his spell. His lips teased and seduced hers until her
body screamed for more.
She wanted him to touch her. Needed him. She arched her hips upward in a silent plea for his touch, and
a dark growl vibrated on her lips as he tugged the covers off her. His tongue swirled around hers, teasing
and taunting her with each tantalizing stoke. The hot taste of him made her nipples grow hard until they
ached with a pleasurable, tantalizing sensitivity. Eager to assuage the need for his touch, she caught his
hand and pressed it to her breasts. A growl rumbled out of him as he rubbed his thumb over the rigid
peak. The sensation of soft linen between her skin and his hand made her moan softly as his mouth
worked its way across her cheek to her neck where he gently nipped at her skin.
Need spun through her, and as he lifted his head to stare down at her, she saw desire darkening his
green eyes. A knot of anticipation tightened in her lower body as his hand left her breast and slid
downward to her stomach where the heel of his hand pressed into the sensitive spot at the apex of her
thighs. The simple pressure made her suck in a sharp breath, and a small smile curved his lips.
“I want to watch you as I make you shatter from my touch, Victoria.” His words whispered across her
senses as his hand pulled the hem of her nightgown upward to expose her completely.
