Lexi does an amazing thing. She takes literary novels uses them as the basis for her erotic novels. Check out her latest:
Beatrice Rappaccini is tired of the one-night stands that keep her alive. Tired of the illness she causes when she releases her sexual poisons into her partners. But when she meets Zach Woodman, everything changes. Desperate for what she can’t have, she puts her heart and life on the line, ignoring the anonymous letters warning her to stay away from Zach.
Zach Woodman, logger turned chainsaw artist, has the perfect life, but no one to share it with after the deaths of the women he loved. Fascinated by the sexually experienced yet naïve Bea, he promises himself he will end their hot relationship before fate takes another beautiful woman from the world.
But he discovers Bea has no idea how to have a relationship, and he is perplexed by her strange behavior, hippie mother, six fathers and her request to give him every man’s sex fantasy. It is only when he might lose her that he realizes he must make a decision that will break his heart either way.
She liked his smile. He had deep lines etched around his mouth, probably because he smiled so much. How wonderful it must be to laugh as much as he did.
She started, caught staring again.
“If you keep looking at me like that, you’re going to find yourself naked on those sheepskins in no time.”
She glanced at the beige softness before the now-roaring fire and shivered. She could imagine the feel of them against her naked skin.
“Come.” Zach stood beside her, his hand outstretched.
Did he want her to get undressed? A shiver of anticipation raced across her skin. She took his hand, but didn’t look at him as his warm palm heated her own.
He tipped her chin up. “We better check on dinner.”
She met his gaze as realization dawned. “Of course, it should be done by now. I hope we didn’t overcook it.”
He led her into the kitchen, but instead of releasing her hand, he boxed her in against the island counter. “Bea, you need to accept that I will not take advantage of you. However, the chances of us making love tonight are at about one hundred percent. Don’t you think?”
Her breath caught in her throat at the baldness of his statement, but she couldn’t deny it. Her body completely agreed with him and from the weakening of her limbs and the hardening of her nipples, it was ready to prove him right—immediately. Slowly, she nodded.
His smile lit his face before he bent his head to pull her into a soul-searching kiss. She wound her arms around his neck and his hard body pressed her against the counter. As their tongues entwined, she forgot to breathe.
Abruptly, he stepped away and put his hands into his front pockets, a gesture she was coming to adore. He stared at her as if he had to make a life-changing decision, but then looked away.
He strode around to the stove and turned off the oven. He didn’t glance at her. “I’m glad that’s settled. Do me a favor and pour us more wine and I’ll serve.”
