Hard to Come By by Laura Kaye
Caught between desire and loyalty... Derek DiMarzio would do anything for the members of his
disgraced Special Forces team--sacrifice his body, help a former teammate with
a covert operation to restore their honor, and even go behind enemy lines. He
just never expected to want the beautiful woman he found there. When a sexy
stranger asks questions about her brother, Emilie Garza is torn between loyalty
to the brother she once idolized and fear of the war-changed man he's become.
Derek's easy smile and quiet strength tempt Emilie to open up, igniting the
desire between them and leading Derek to crave a woman he shouldn't trust. As
the team's investigation reveals how powerful their enemies are, Derek and
Emilie must prove where their loyalties lie before hearts are broken and lives
are lost. Because love is too hard to come by to let slip away...
Preferred Type of Woman: All women are
beautiful, he just wants one who will accept him
Marz was playing with fire. He damn well knew he
was. But that didn’t make him want to pull away. He just wanted more of the
heat. Marz nuzzled the side of Emilie’s face with his nose, his lips. She
turned her face toward him and offered her lips. He couldn’t refuse. Capturing
her mouth on a tortured groan, Marz poured every ounce of his longing and
confusion and desire into the kiss. They grasped at each other and Emilie
turned in his arms. He pinned her against the railing and planted his hands in
her hair. She opened to him and accepted his tongue, sucking him in until
Marz’s blood ran hot and his hard-on ached. He ground himself against her and
devoured every little moan and whimper and gasp she spilled. Trailing kisses
from her mouth to her jaw to her ear, Marz dragged a hand down her body and
grasped her breast in his palm. She cried out and her head dropped back,
drawing his mouth to her neck, where he licked and sucked and nipped as he
kneaded her soft flesh. “You are so damn sexy.” Her hand flew to his hair and
grasped the back of his head. “Touch me,” she said. “Don’t stop touching me.”
Marz pulled away long enough to do a three-sixty scan. The lighthouse cast a
dark shadow over them, and the pier was otherwise empty. His heart raced and
his pulse hammered. He dove back in, trailing kisses down her neck to her
collarbone, which he traced with his tongue. Her nails scratched deliciously at
his scalp and her grip urged him down. Through the thin material of her blouse
and bra, he mouthed and flicked at her nipple. He shifted the deep vee of the
neckline to reveal a lacy royal blue bra. He tongued her through the lace until
she was panting and moaning and writhing against the railing. “Oh, my God,” she
rasped as he shifted her shirt and moved to her other breast. This time, he
tugged the lace down to bare the deep pink of her nipple. She tasted and
smelled like something fruity and sweet, and it made Marz hunger for more.
“Derek,” she gasped. “Yes, yes, yes.” Her palm cupped and squeezed the bulge of
his erection through his jeans. His hips jerked into the touch, craving more of
her, all of her. He groaned and it seemed to egg her on, because she pressed
and rubbed her hand against his trapped cock until he was panting and imagining
taking her down to the ground. “Jesus, Emilie, you’re driving me fucking
crazy,” he said as he worked kisses back up her body to her mouth. “I know just
what you mean,” she said. Her molten hot gaze met his. Eyes hooded, lips shiny
and swollen, cheeks flushed, she was a freaking goddess standing under the
moonlit sky. He felt the force of her beauty every bit as much in his chest as
in his cock. “You sure about that, babe?” he asked as he took her mouth in a
deep, wet kiss. “Because my imagination has me stripping you of those fuck-hot
jeans.” “Yeah?” She rubbed his cock in a long stroke with the heel of her hand.
“Mine has us getting a room at the hotel back there. So I’m sure,” she said
with a smile. Marz’s heart hammered against his breastbone and his cock jerked,
clearly liking her idea, too. Except, if he took her up on it, he was going to
end up buried inside her for as long as she’d have him. And so long as this
clusterfuck of a situation defined their relationship, he couldn’t take things
that far. Could he?
