A Hart Brother's Novel
By: AM Hargrove
*This novel contains mature content and it not intended for younger readers*
This is the beginning of a story... the story of two people who were meant to be together. Why? Because unknown to them, they shared terrifying pasts and the cruel circumstances of their births doomed both of them to a life of hell.
Two strangers ... one night ... one accidental meeting that changed their lives forever.
Gabriella Martinelli, Manhattan psychiatrist had only one goal in life—to help abuse victims avoid the horrors she’d experienced herself. She worked late, volunteered, and donated her services to anyone who needed them. Life was good ... until her nightmare resurfaced. He found her, and began stalking her, and she knew he wouldn’t stop until he destroyed every ragged piece of her.
Kolson Hart, Manhattan’s most eligible bachelor, was ruled by his dark past. He liked control, from the boardroom to the bedroom and didn’t care to be involved with someone whose life was just as screwed up as his was. But one look at Gabriella short-circuited everything. Want ... desire ... need ... will sometimes drive a man to do things he swore he never would.
He freed her from a life of fear ... When he couldn’t even save himself.
One day, on her way home from work as a sales manager, A. M. Hargrove, realized her
So began A. M. Hargrove's career as a YA/NA and Adult Romance writer. Her books include Kissing Fire, Edge of Disaster, Shattered Edge, the series the Guardians of Vesturon (Survival, Resurrection, Determinant, Beginnings and reEmergent), Dark Waltz, Tragically Flawed, Tragic Desires, and Exquisite Betrayal.
Other than being in love with being in love, she loves chocolate, ice cream and coffee and is positive they should be added as part of the USDA food groups.
(If you're wondering, it didn't happen EXACTLY that way, but….)
You can also find her on Goodreads as Emerson St. Clair. Her novella series, Dirty Nights, is available and those are a little dark, a little erotic and a lot sexy!
His body was a sentinel, looming over hers, yet Gabby didn’t mind one bit. In fact, she rather enjoyed her physical reaction to him, like he let off a static charge and the fine hairs on her body paid homage to him. Her eyes targeted his lips and all she wanted to do was taste them again, so that’s precisely what she did. Kolson wasn’t a man who was often caught off guard, but Gabby had the element of surprise when she threw her arm around his neck and lunged.
It wasn’t a tentative test-the-waters kind of kiss. It was an explosive, take-control type. Body armor: gone. Weapons: tossed aside. Gloves: ripped away. She didn’t give a damn about caution or preliminaries. Cara and Sky were dumbfounded for they had never seen Gabby in action. As for Kolson, he didn’t demur one bit. His hand released her wrist and both his arms yanked her against him, lifting her off her feet and imprisoning her against his larger frame. It was so erotic that even Cara and Sky panted.
Cara eventually stuck her face up to the couple and said, “Get a room.”
Gabby’s hands were tangled in Kolson’s hair when the kiss ended. She said, voice sexed up, “Maybe we should.”
Kolson turned to Gabby’s friends and said, “Good night, ladies. It was a pleasure meeting you.” And then he walked out toting Gabby in his arms.
Once outside, Kolson asked, “Why did you go out without letting me know where you’d be? Especially after what happened today?”
The question stumped her. Was she supposed to tell him her every move?
“I didn’t know I was supposed to.”
He stopped walking. “Conversation is impossible with that damn mouth staring me in the face. Either I put you down or we kiss again. Which will it be, Gabriella?”
“Kiss me, Kolson.”
“I’m going against my better judgment here. You’re intoxicated.”
She pulled his face toward hers and was satisfied when she heard him groan. “Wrap your legs around me. I want you to feel what you do to me.” And then his lips met hers again. But this time they teased her, tasted, nibbled, and grazed until she squirmed against him, moaning.
He murmured against her mouth, “Hush, Gabriella. I let you have your way with me the last kiss. This one’s all mine.”
He moved until her back was against the rough concrete of a building and skimmed her with his lips. He brushed them across the apple of her cheek, sending ripples of heat over her body. Though his touch was delicate, she shivered violently as her body reacted to him.
His lips left a heated trail down to the corner of her mouth and then moved to her neck. She could feel the stubble of his cheek, the roughness as it scratched her soft skin, but she didn’t mind. In fact, the masculine feel made it more appealing. Gabby thought she must’ve been drugged because her senses were in hyperdrive. She inhaled his fresh, clean, slightly spicy fragrance. His touch and the way he held her body against his was possessive yet protective and sexy at the same time, and it sent her heart straight into her throat. That he was pleasing to look at was a given. The way he felt beneath her hands, hard but smooth, made her fingers tingle. Had she been a braver soul, she would’ve ripped his shirt, slid her hands under the fabric, and had her way with him.
By now, Kolson’s lips had worked her into a frenzy as they brushed over and around her neck. Gabby couldn’t think straight as she was damn near hyperventilating. When he lifted his head, he slid his finger over her brow and said, “Gabriella, open your eyes.”
Dazed, she stared at him like a brainless fool, incapable of words. His hair was bunched in her fists and she didn’t recall doing that. Gabby knew one thing: she wanted to sleep with this man. Tonight.
