Everything seems to come easy for Briana, including her beautiful children, loving husband and dynamic career. Briana's charmed life is ripped apart when she wakes up in the hospital with no idea who she is and no memory of her former life. With the help of the handsome stranger who saved her, Briana builds a new life and finds new love, while Tiana won't rest until Briana has no life at all.
His honey brown eyes searched hers. Charles felt her sincerity, and raw emotion ran through his gut. He was aware of her warm, soft, body invading his space, and he didn’t mind it one bit. His lips met hers and they kissed. A simple kiss at first, then his hands wrapped around her waist and their kiss deepened. He turned her toward him and she straddled his lap. They kissed like long lost lovers, his lips sucking the bottom and top of her lips before inserting his tongue in her mouth.
Briana’s stomach was in knots and she savored the taste of him. A moan left her mouth and found its way down Charles throat, which was met with his own barbaric, sexually stimulated grunt. As Briana slightly pulled away from him for air, Charles rained kisses down her chin, across her face and to her neck. Briana felt his arousal grow beneath her, which made her body heat up from the bottom of her toes to the top of her ears.
In a breathless voice, Briana spoke. “Maybe we should slow down.”
After she said it, she regretted it. No way did she want to slow down, at least that’s what her body told her. Charles’ fervent kisses slowed, but didn’t completely stop. Briana had set his emotions on high, and every loin in his body wanted her right then and right now. Slowly, he sat back, his broad shoulders and chest heaving, forcing himself to comply with her wishes.
“That wasn’t very Christ like, now was it?” Charles said with little amusement.
Briana fidgeted. “It’s just that…” She searched for the right words to say. “I don’t want our lovemaking to be in vain. I don’t want it to happen because you’re feeling vulnerable right now.”
Charles regarded her for a long moment, his thick eyelashes hovering over his strong penetrating gaze. His tongue swept across his bottom lip as he assessed her, tasting the sweetness she’d left lingering on his mouth.
“I can assure you,” he said, his voice deep and husky, “when we do make love, there will be nothing vain about it.”
