Unlocked: Rekindled Flames
Alonna Carrington, tied too long to her dead fiancé’s memory, has lost all belief in love. Prepared to replace hope with pleasure, her chance encounter with a mysterious media mogul rekindles a distant memory and a desire she craves beyond control.
Donovan Derbinay has dreamed of Alonna for all eternity...and that isn’t his only secret. So much more than a soulmate, she is his Twin Flame. Yet she doesn’t remember their love or their shared lives or how tragedies have taken her from him time after time.
But this life is different from the others, and Donovan must unlock Alonna’s heart and awaken the memories of their shared past before the flame of their spellbound hearts is extinguished forever.
Another time…Another place…
Another chance…to love.
I close my eyes. “No,” I whisper.
I spin, feeling my breasts nip the lapels of his suit and look him in the face. “It’s unattractive to beg.”
“Most women would have been thrilled and opened any gift I presented.” Donovan’s face loses emotion. He steps back adjusting his coat.
“I’m not most women.”
“That you are not.” He side steps me and begins walking to the door.
Just as I prepare to exhale, Donovan opens, then closes the door to my office. He ignores the vibrating of his phone and stands there for a second, maybe two. He pivots and starts back to me with a strong stride. He closes in, smothering me as I inhale his sweet breaths. I look up into his eyes and become lost as they stare down into the depths of my soul.
“You can deny me and what you feel now, but a lifetime…one is all I need.” His long, manicured finger traces the outline of my jaw, igniting a carnal fire within me. “I’ve searched for you forever, and in my imagination you are a beautiful beggar. There is nothing unattractive about it. In fact, it only makes me want to give you more.”
His sizzling touch cools when he steps back then turns to leave. He speaks as if we’ve always known each other. What’s eerie is…I feel like we have. Donovan is scary, and dangerous, and…I’m attracted to him unlike I’ve been to any other man.
