At first, his words were harsh and his touch cold.

I didn’t want to be in his presence any more than he wanted me there.

I knew he was a dangerous man and he could destroy me if only he wanted to.


That’s not what he wanted though.  It’s not what he needed.

It’s not what I desired either.


It’s so easy to get lost in the touch of a man who’s powerful and unattainable.  

A man who wants for nothing … except me.

Soft touches and stolen glances made my blood heat and my heart beat in a way I never knew it could.


Yes, it’s easy to fall into a haze of lust and desire.

But there’s a reason his reputation is one of a heartless man.

And I should have known better.
