Welcome to this week's My Sexy Saturday! Romance and erotic writers are sharing seven sexy words, sentences, or paragraphs, for your pleasure. Today I'm sharing from my latest erotic romance, Candi's Debt.
This week's theme: While You Were Sexy
Candi just confessed to what's been going on, and Hank makes a bit of confession of his own...
I try to sniff back my tears, but they still spill over onto my cheeks. When he wipes them away it makes me cry even more. “Why do you care, Hank? Why the hell should you care what happens to me when obviously no one else gives a shit?”
His face softens and he shakes his head, unsure. “I don’t know. It’s you. I think I was meant to be the man who cares about you. The one who will always be there for you. I never wanted to slay anyone’s dragons, but I’d slay dragons for you.”
“I thought you weren’t a knight in shining armor,” I say softly, drawn in by his words. I want to believe them more than I want to breathe. Always is a long time. He says nothing of love and for that I’m grateful. I’ve never told a man I loved him, outside of my brother. I never believed in that kind of love. The romantic kind.
“Just for you, princess. Just for you.” The way he looks at me when he says it makes me think romantic love does exist and maybe he’s starting to feel it for me. I’m not nearly comfortable with his level of sincerity. When he hated me—that I understood. When he wanted nothing to do with me—well, I could understand that too.
“You’ve come a long way from the guy who thought I was nothing but a troubled girl who needed a spanking.”
“I still think you’re trouble. And you definitely could use a spanking.” His lips are on mine and I can’t think. We shift and he’s over me, pushing my legs open. Easing inside me. And all I can do is feel.
The men in my family are gamblers, cheats, and thieves. They aren’t loyal to anyone but themselves. It’s the Dawson way. My oldest brother was killed for sticking to that tradition.
I refuse to let that happen to my little brother. He’s all I have in this world and I’ll do anything to save him.
His debts are now mine, and I always pay my debts.
Now if a certain ape leader would get out of my way, things would go much more smoothly.
I swore never to return to Texas. But here I am, wading neck deep into shit creek. I’m not even getting paid for this crap.
And Candi? She has more secrets than sense and represents everything I try to avoid. I’m not sure how I got tangled up with her in the first place. I have no business getting involved with a woman like her. She needs to be saved from herself.I don’t have a white knight complex, and this girl needs a savior. I can’t be that guy.
