GENRE: romantic suspense
Eoin O’Brien is a police detective, despite his da’s wish that he run the family pub. His wife left him 3 years ago when he thwarted her dream to work in an art gallery. Now Vivian is back. After her gallery and her life are threatened, their paths cross again. Part of what drove her away was Eoin’s need for control. If Eoin lets her fend for herself, can he win her back and still keep her safe?
Vivian didn’t want Eoin, did she? She should choose Avery. Safe, predictable, unassuming Avery. The perfect gentleman. Right? Only now, as she read desire and yearning in Eoin’s green eyes, she wasn’t so sure.
Okay, yes. This was obviously desire, she thought as Eoin leaned down, giving her plenty of time to pull away if she wanted. She didn’t. His lips teased her unresponsive ones. Her passivity didn’t last long. One touch of his tongue to her closed mouth and she opened it for him, welcoming him in.
Their tongues danced and dueled as his arms moved around her, pulling her tighter. Ah, he’d missed this. His heart raced specifically for this woman. Eoin O’Brien was meant to kiss Vivian Lewis-O’Brien forever.
She should stop this. She really should. Who knew how many people were standing there gawking while she made out with her estranged husband on the sidewalk? But she was beyond giving a damn at the moment. Vivian needed his kisses like she needed air. It had simply been too long. Too long without his touch, she thought as he ran one hand inside her coat to brush the underside of her breast. Too long without his aftershave tantalizing her senses. Too long without the feel of his naked skin against hers.
Whoa! Slow down. She pushed slightly against his chest, separating their bodies. Heavy breathing on both sides. Good. At least she wasn’t the only one who wanted to rip her clothes off and launch herself in his arms.
“I don’t think this is a very good idea.”
Eoin stepped back again, putting his hands in his pockets and wearing the biggest grin she’d ever seen.
“What?” She crossed her arms and narrowed her eyes.
“Nothing,” he smirked.
“It’s obviously something, Eoin. Just say it!”
“Our story is definitely not over.” And with that he strolled away, leaving her with her mouth open, staring at his retreating form.
