STEALING CARMEN is coming!!

The cover is on the "coming soon" page at Ellora's Cave ...at last! LOL

Here is a little of Jack from STEALING CARMEN.

Watching as she worked through her feelings was eating away his control. She wasn’t shrinking from him. Beautiful Carmen opened her soul like a rare flower seeks the sun. Letting him be the sun in her sky was all a dominant could ask for and Jack had to brace himself. Going slow was painful but still a pleasure.

After a moment he continued. She had to know where they were before either of them went further. The no-deceptions part went both ways and he wanted to be sure she knew it. “I have a dangerous job. You know I’m gone for months at a time. I’m not looking for a woman who needs a man to get through her days. But I don’t want casual, throwaway sex. I want you. What I want is not fair. I’m gone a lot but I want a woman who’s faithful. And I’m a real dominant. Are you afraid?”

“Yes.”

“Of what?”

“That you’ll change your mind,” Carmen informed him, a new strength entering her tone.

Jack raised a brow in surprise. “About which thing?”

“That you want me.” Carmen licked her lips nervously. Her entire body was trembling now. “I’ve never been with a real dominant. I’m fat and I just confessed a whole bunch of embarrassing stuff on the phone. It’s difficult to believe that you want me. You’re perfect. You could have anyone.”

Jack cocked his head as he listened to her. The courage to be a submissive, a real submissive was written all over that little speech. She was stunning. He worked at keeping his face a serious mask for her. She needed to know he matched her. She could trust him to take care of all the things she was asking without words.

“I don’t lie, baby. If this were a line, I’d have stopped talking five minutes ago. Talking is pretty much the last thing I want to do. As to your fat statement, have a look at my crotch. I’m working on having exactly who I want. And I’m not looking for a one-time thing. So if we get involved and I ever hear you call yourself something ugly again, I’ll feel compelled to correct your attitude.”

Her eyes dropped to the hard bulge between his legs and she swallowed. Reading her face, there was no fear in that reaction. There was something much more greedy and Jack nearly growled with frustration. He was damn sure she wasn’t lying about never having been with a dominant, but her natural reactions were so purely sensual submission, she was effectively eating away the last shred of his resistance.

When they reached this point, civilians plunked down half the retirement fund on a ridiculous car or some other equally foolish item. A lifetime of looking at the other side of the fence brought a man to this. Investing more than he could afford in something he’d always wanted. For Jack it wasn’t the cash. Stealing Carmen came at a dangerous price. One he hadn’t realized he was willing to pay.
