He scared me. He thrilled me. And after one touch, all I could think about was getting more…
Makayla never thought she’d set foot in an underground mixed-martial arts club. But if anyone needs a medic on hand, it’s these guys. Trouble is, at her first sight of the club’s owner she’s the one feeling breathless.
All sleek muscle and restrained power, the man they call Torment plays to win at any cost. Whether it’s in the ring or in the bedroom, he knows exactly when to use a soft touch and when to launch a full-on assault. He always knows just how far he can push. And he’s about to tempt Makayla in ways she never imagined…
Expected Release Date - September 3, 2013
Makayla Delaney is at a crossroads. She graduated college with a degree (and tons of debt!) and is now working as an EMT at a local hospital. Paying off her student loans has become impossible on her current salary so she forced to take a second job selling tickets to an underground fight club. On one of her first nights, a leather clad man slips passed her without paying admission so she tracks him down inside. She has no idea that the tall and darkly handsome fighter is actually Max “Torment” Huntington – the owner of the Rampage fight club. Whatever Torment wants, Torments gets and he has decided that he wants Makayla.
“He turns and gives me the most brilliant smile, all crinkled eyes and boyish charm. Good thing I have no socks to knock off. He points at my phone. I read the message and my heart stutters.
Did you just kiss me? **blushes**
I look up. He is looking down at me. His sensual lips part and he mouths his answer.
“Max’s body tenses. He slides his hand to my shoulders and holds me at arm’s length. “I won’t go through it again,” he says, his voice thick. “I’ve worked hard to get to the point I know I will be able to defend the people I love.” His voice drops to a husky whisper. “I love you, Makayla. I couldn’t bear to lose you. I want to protect you and keep you safe, but you need to let me in.”
