RED RED WINE: The Blurb
She’s tantalizing…tempting…and taken.
Tastes of Seduction, Book 2
When Andrew Stafford’s business partner banishes him from work with strict instructions to take a much-needed holiday, the offer of five days relaxing in wine country is too enticing to refuse. As is the woman he encounters the minute he arrives at the hotel.
She’s everything Andrew’s ever wanted in a partner, and meeting her should be the answer to all of his prayers. Except for one thing—she’s strictly off limits.
Tori Worthing has never been happier. She’s about to marry an amazing man, and her life is laid out perfectly before her—until her dream winery wedding becomes an unexpected nightmare. Her heart shattered, she turns to the one place she never expected to find comfort—a stranger’s arms.
Tori and Andrew both know theirs is a rebound affair destined to end when the week is over. But when the time comes, letting her go proves to be the hardest step Andrew’s ever had to take.
Product Warnings: Jilted brides are not supposed to have this much fun. Especially when the fun involves a bottle of red, a sexy man and getting naked in the gazebo at midnight.
RED RED WINE: An Excerpt
As he took the two steps up to the now-familiar gazebo, Andrew released his breath in a rush. He hadn’t realized he’d been holding it.
Tori was there.
And like him, she was early. Midnight was a good half an hour away.
“You came.” He couldn’t stop the rush of pleasure that hit him.
“I wasn’t sure you would.” He’d convinced himself she wouldn’t.
“I…I wasn’t going to. But then I couldn’t resist. Didn’t want to resist, actually.”
A goofy smile spread across his face. She’d wanted to see him again. “How did the day go?”
“On a scale of one to ten?” She bobbed her head from side to side, as though considering her answer. “I’d give it about a zero.”
“That bad. Andrew?”
“Could you do me a favor?”
“Could you please just hold me?”
He set the bottle of wine and glasses on the bench and held his arms open. “C’mon over here, sweetheart.” And there it was again, that foreign ache in his chest he only felt when Tori was near.
She melted into his arms. One minute she was out of reach, the next her body was pressed to his, her arms wrapped around his neck.
He held her close. God, so close. Her every curve molded to his length, her feminine softness a welcome delight against his stiff muscles.
For long moments neither of them moved. They stood where they were, Andrew content to hold her like this forever. Her head fit perfectly against his shoulder, and she buried her face in it, her warm breath heating the flesh beneath his shirt.
Cinnamon and spice filled his nose, and he just stood there, breathing her in.
“He’s gone,” she said at length.
She nodded. “He left this afternoon.”
“You doing okay?”
“I’ve been better. But it’s easier knowing he’s not nearby. I feel like I can breathe again.”
“Are you going to go home too?” He hated asking. Never wanted her to go home, but if Andrew had found himself in a similar circumstance, he’d have headed straight to his house. Thrown himself on his couch or his bed and stayed there for days, with Bruiser his only company.
“No. I’m not ready to face the house that he was supposed to live in with me. Or confront the future we were supposed to share. I know I have to, and I will. On Monday. But I’ll use the next few days to fall apart here.”
He pressed a gentle kiss to her head. “Fall as hard as you need to. I’ll catch you.”
Tori raised her head from his chest, her gaze snaring his. With just that look, something changed between them. Like the switching of gears in his body, Andrew felt his cock twitch.
“You’ve already caught me. Last night and tonight.” She kissed his chin, a teasing brush of her lips against his lower jaw. “That’s twice now.”
Electricity crackled where her mouth touched. Awareness slammed into Andrew, and by the sound of her whimper, he wasn’t the only one. Tori gripped his shirt, pulling it tight around his shoulders, and blood filled his cock at an alarming rate.
Tori’s sharp intake of breath was audible.
The air around them snapped and popped with energy.
She kissed his cheek, another sensuous brush of mouth against skin.
“Ando…” Her voice was a husky murmur.
The whisper was all the incentive he needed. Andrew claimed her mouth with his. Her lips opened instantly, and their tongues tangled together in a wanton dance.
