Saints & Sinners
DEPOSTION AND A DARE
I knew Erik Jensen was trouble the moment I crashed into him in front of a bar on Bourbon St. I didn't know how much trouble until the wanna-be Dom dragged me into court on a ridiculous charge.
Looking more like a sexy pirate than an attorney, there's nothing pretend about Jensen, and the stakes are higher than I ever could have imagined. Because Erik isn't the man I thought he was, and neither is the game we're playing.
If I win, I keep it all: my business, my reputation, and my heart. If I lose…well, I won't let that happen.
But it's getting harder to tell which one of us is being mastered and before long, a safe word is the only thing standing between happily ever after and a pair of broken hearts.
COCKTAILS AND A KISS
Repeat after me...
I will not fall in love. I will not fall in love.
It doesn't matter what he looks like or what he smells like or how he makes me feels. Or that he's thoughtful, challenges me, and takes care of the people he loves. I don't need anyone to take care of me.
I'm going to sing vintage Tina Turner and wait for the feelings to pass. Ford Landry might have mastered my body, but I'm not letting him anywhere near my heart.
