He wants to protect her, but can she trust him with her secrets?
After a terrifying encounter on the idyllic island of Capri, Lee Gallagher has no option but to accept help from a handsome stranger in a crimson Maserati. Sophisticated and drop-dead sexy, Rafe Sabbatini is a knight in shining armour fit for the 21st century.
Lee’s a loner, and fiercely independent. She came to Capri to paint. She’s not looking for a relationship, and certainly not one that involves finding herself tied to the bed of a sensual Latin lover.
But Rafe proves hard to resist. He wants the shy English woman he found by the roadside and he’s determined to have her. She’s been hurt. She’s scared and alone but Rafe knows just how to get past her fears to release the sensual woman beneath.
Rafe’s practiced, knowing touch easily overcomes her defences and promises to fulfil all Lee’s fantasies. But even as she surrenders to the stern commands and dominant loving of this enigmatic stranger she has secrets of her own, and a past which is fast catching up with her. Can Rafe protect her when danger threatens their fragile relationship?

“Tell me what you would like, cara.”
“What? I don’t know…”
“Yes, you do. Or if not that, tell me what you are thinking of. Now. What are you imagining I might do to you?”
“If you wish it to happen, you must say it. Ask me. Tell me.”
“I want you to touch me.”
“Where should I touch you?”
“B-between my legs. Please.”
“You can do better than that, cara. English is not my first language, but I will understand if you tell me to stroke your pussy. Or to slide my fingers inside you, inside your hot, wet cunt and finger-fuck you. Do you want to say those things to me, little one?”
Lee closed her eyes, as though that might distance her from her words.
Rafe was having none of that. “Eyes on me, Lee. Speak to me.”
Lee returned her gaze to his and wondered how such darkness could be so hot. His eyes burned her, demanded truth from her, would settle for nothing less.
“I want you to touch my pussy. And finger-fuck me, please.”
His answering smile was dazzling. He leaned down, bracing himself on his arms until his lips brushed hers. “Good girl,” he murmured, an instant before his lips closed over hers.
Lee spasmed. Helpless, restrained, she arched under him and rubbed her erect nipples against his chest. Her inner walls convulsed and quivered, clenching on emptiness, and she wondered if it was possible to climax from words alone.
Mercifully, she didn’t need to find out. Rafe propped himself on one elbow, and his free hand slid through her folds, exploring, stroking, testing her arousal.
“Ah, so wet. Is this all for me, cara?”
“I… I think it must be.”
“Are you hot and tight, as well as wet?”
“I’m not sure. Perhaps…”
“How shall I discover the truth of the matter?”
Oh, God. Does he actually mean for me to say it out loud?
