Series: Trinity #4
Published by Waterhouse Press on February 28th 2017
Maria De La Torre is a survivor. Her life has not been paved with streets of gold...but with blood and sacrifice. She may have been there for her soul sister in the Trinity Trilogy but this story is about her life. The life she chooses. The same life someone from her past is trying to take away.
Elijah is the last man in the entire world Maria should be with. He's a dark, gritty, lawless bounty hunter--the exact opposite of the man she loved and lost, the man who gave up everything for her. Only Elijah is not the type of guy to back down. He's used to getting what he wants and he's set his sights on the raven-haired seductress.
Time is not on Maria and Elijah's side. There's a new threat to the soul sister, one Maria never thought she'd have to face again. And this time, of the stakes are life and death. Maria quickly learns that the things she wants most in this lifetime may just be the things that have the power to destroy her.
The kiss is feral. He plunders my mouth with his tongue in wild, hedonistic abandon. Both of us drop our drinks to the sand below without a care, preferring to hold on to one another.Mi culo.
Mis muslos. His hands are all over me. He moves them up my back until both hands are threaded through my hair, holding me in place, while he devours my mouth. His ardent tongue searches for mine, and I comply with equal passion. He tastes of minty beer and man. A mind-melting concoction.The wall between us is gone. Obliterated by his honesty. I can no longer deny this man what he wants. What I want. What we both need. Each other.Eli kisses me so hard, and for so long, my lips are swollen and bruised when he pulls away on a mighty breath. His chest rises with every inhalation. ÔÇ£You canÔÇÖt stop this,ÔÇØ he murmurs, his lips a succulent snarl of desire.I shake my head and firm my jaw, ready to take whatever he can give me and more. ÔÇ£No. I canÔÇÖt.ÔÇØÔÇ£We are fire and ice, baby. Both run scalding hot when stimulated. I want to make you mine. Make you forget him, and everything and everyone that came before. This heat between us, itÔÇÖs all-consuming.ÔÇØI close my eyes and lean my forehead against his, praying IÔÇÖm making the right decision. ÔÇ£Burn me,ÔÇØ I whisper against his lips. ÔÇ£Set me on fire.ÔÇØ I press my mouth against his and nibble on the plump bottom lip. ÔÇ£I want to forget. Today, just make me forget.ÔÇØ
