Jessie Lawrence, fooled around with her brother -in-law and now the past has come to haunt her.
Barnes & Noble.com
Jessie Lawrence never knew a greater passion than that she’d felt with Mason Garrett, her brother-in-law. But him stepping back into her life after many years is more than she can handle. A wild man of the world with nothing but women on his mind (but not including Jessie) is heartbreaking. Losing her virginity to this despicable man the day before her wedding to his brother left her with secrets she had kept for years.
But Mason, taking control of her life and all that she has worked for, is much to be desired. Feeling betrayed, and dealing with the dreams that sweep her restless nights are problems she does not want to deal with.
Mason woos her beyond his wildest dreams but in a way she is totally unaware of. He traps her into revealing her passions and desires, and then leaves her to ponder. Jessie confused, runs away, with Mason hot on trail.
“At last.” He chuckled. “At long last, I have you to myself.” He pulled her down on the sofa, capturing her mouth with his. She returned his kiss dutifully, wishing that he would stir her in a way that he never had before. But even though his kiss was long and hard, even though he was as handsome and an inexperienced lover, his embrace evoked none of the savage hunger she longed to feel.
“I want you to marry me soon,” he said, pulling away breathing hard. “I don’t know how much more of this I can stand. I know you too well to sleep with me before marriage. You’re not the kind of
woman that goes to bed with a man without making commitment first.”
