SHE SHOULD BE SEEN, BUT NEVER TOUCHED…
Kerry Smithson’s modeling career ensures that she will be admired from afar, which is essential since mere human touch sparks blinding pain and terrifying visions.
EVERY GOOD MODEL NEEDS A HEAVENLY BODYGUARD…
Dante Coltari is hired to protect Kerry from those who know who she is – or more importantly what she is – and want her dead because of it. Nothing could have prepared him for the challenge of keeping her safe. But, strangely, his lightest touch brings her exquisite pleasure rather than pain, and Dante and Kerry have an otherworldly connection that might just pull them through.
Dante stroked her hair down the length of her back and held her close. “Your father sacrificed everything for you from the day you were born because he loved you, Kerry. I know how he feels, princess.”
Her heart skipped a beat, and she pulled back to look him in the eyes. “Me too,” she whispered. Silence stretched between them with several beats of their hearts. “I love you, Dante.”
That lopsided smile she’d grown to adore cracked his handsome face. “I know,” he said in the most infuriatingly calm manner.
Kerry slapped his arm and laughed out loud. “You big Neanderthal!”
He laughed with her and took her face delicately in his strong hands. “I love you, Kerry. I’ve loved you from the moment I laid eyes on you that day at the beach.” He stroked her cheek with his thumb, and it left little trails of fire in its wake. “I will honor his memory by spending every day, every minute of my life, making you happy and keeping you safe. And I promise you,” he said as his voice dropped to a husky whisper, “we’ll find the others.”
Kerry smiled as he placed a soft, warm kiss on her lips and moaned contentedly. She nuzzled his neck and pulled him close once again. Now, more than ever, she needed to be connected with him, with his touch.
