I’ve always been Miranda Phillips, the town pariah. Growing up with neglectful parents, having sought attention from all the guys that were willing to give it to me, I wasn’t the most well-behaved kid in Lone Star. Not to mention all of the juvenile delinquent acts I’ve committed in my past.
But now I am Lone Star’s only reporter and I’ve come a long way from being that lost, troubled girl, even if most of the town still judged me for it. I don’t allow anyone to get in the way of what I want. Including Ryan John. So when I corner him in a dark hallway and get him to succumb to the sizzling attraction between us, I know I’m playing with fire.
Even though I’ve successfully avoided her for two months, I haven’t forgotten how she tastes or what she feels like in my arms. And when I get sent a mysterious letter from some company wanting to buy my thousand shares of water rights that have been in my family for over a hundred years, I’m convinced that there is no one…err, better equipped, to help me than Lone Star’s reporter, Miranda Phillips.
I know how desperately she wants me and this letter gives me all the reason I need to spend one night with the girl from the wrong side of town. One night in exchange for her tight investigative skills. And believe me, she’s tight, in more ways than one. One night. Because Miranda is trouble and being on the city council, as well as guardian to my younger brother and sister, means I can’t afford trouble.
Even if it comes packaged just the way I like.
“I’m sorry, would you like something to drink?” I stand and he stands as well. We are a foot or so apart and his scent tickles my nose, immersing me into the great outdoors. Wind, rain…I can’t identify it, but it heats me up.
“I definitely would.”
“Okay,” I turn quickly before I decide to launch myself into his arms and he grabs my wrist turning me back to him. I stumble into him colliding with his solid body. His large hand keeps ahold of my wrist and tugs it behind me. With one hand perfectly incapable of moving, he bends his head down and captures my mouth with his. I don’t close my eyes. There is no way I can. I can’t miss this. He is so damn sexy and he is coming on to me this time, giving in to his desires.
His possessiveness drives me wild. His warm tongue claims me, branding me like an animal and there isn’t a darn thing I want to do about it. His attack continues and my eyes, heavy with arousal, finally close, surrendering to his wishes. My free hand comes up to touch his neck, his ear, wherever, before he shifts and pulls it down behind my back, enclosing both of my wrists into one large, warm hand.
My chest is unnaturally stuck out into his thin shirt pressing into his torso, unleashing a desire in me for him to touch me there. His tongue tangles with mine and finally, his free hand shimmies up my waist, along my side, skimming the outside of my breast before holding onto my cheek and face. It is the gentlest gesture and along with my soaking wet panties, the move makes my heart catapult into the depths that are Ryan. I’ve never experienced a gentle touch like this before. Neither from a lover or a parent. The tenderness almost brings tears to my eyes.
His kiss softens into little nibbles and bites along my lower lip. He lets out a growl and the sound makes me whimper. The heat of his mouth leaves a burning trail as he sears a path from my lips down to my neck.
“Please, I have to touch you. Please,” I beg.
“No, Miranda. If you touch me, that will be the fucking end of me. I’m barely holding on.”
