Charity Powers and Justin Collins face
down their final challenges and elicit desires in the last of their passionate
series. Almost a year has passed since their romance began and they’ve overcome
obstacles together that they could never have endured alone—and they’ll need
each other now more than ever!
Their powerful love is ready and
eager for the next evolution of their relationship, but Brian Marker has
returned for his revenge. The gifted assassin in Justin can sense the ruthless
killer all around them, hunting them, closing in, and it’s time to begin the
plans he’s been protecting from everyone, even Charity. Senator Lewis moves
closer to the presidential candidacy with Panther’s help, and a power struggle
larger than anyone was prepared for unfolds around them. Panther Inc. must pass
hands to Garrett so Justin and Charity can run across the world to drive their stalker
out into the open to face them.
Charity and Justin refuse to let
anything come between them and their lust for each other. They accept their
fate with all the erotic heat they both have craved from the beginning, a fire
so intense that it ignites flames in those around them.
But there are always dark and
dangerous corners and those wicked souls hiding within them. With the light at
the end of the tunnel before them so bright that they can see the rest of their
happy lives together, will Charity and Justin make it to God’s alter in bliss—or
He's going to be my husband.
I have so many questions and I'm
afraid to ask them all and look like a desperate waif greedy for attention and
"You're going to bubble over
and short circuit if you don't ask those questions on your mind," Justin
says suddenly. "I can see them all churning around in your head waiting
for you to spit them out. It's not healthy, or fair, to keep them all in."
I lower my head. He's right, of
course, but I'm still worried about his reaction. Just asking me was such a
huge leap for him.
"Okay," he says through a
deep breath. "I'll guess my way through."
He studies my face, looking
straight through my eyes. I can almost feel him inside me rummaging around through
my thoughts. "You want to know when; if I want a long or short
"That's the most
obvious," I tease.
Justin shrugs his shoulders.
"Of course it is; did you think I was going to read your mind?"
Really, my snort-laugh did not need
to be that loud, but just like Melissa and Trisha, Justin seems to only love it
when it happens, and I've grown used to it in front of him.
"I'll wait if you want, but
I'd rather it be soon. I don't want you to be able to get away from me so
easily once you realize I'm not good enough for you," he says, his large
arm holding me just a little tighter as if I might decide to leave him now.
"That will not happen; you’re
perfect for me. And I would like to marry you sooner too," I tell him.
"As soon as this Marker businesses is done, we'll start planning."
Justin agrees with a nod. "We
can get married just as quickly as we can put together whatever kind of wedding
you want. What do you want, Charity? Huge and elegant with hundreds of guests,
or small and cozy with just our closest loved ones?"
He rolls over quickly, balancing
himself on his elbows above me. "I will give you whatever you want; all
you have to do is tell me." His beautiful face dips closer to mine.
"I want to give you everything. Tell me what you want." He moves his
mouth toward mine but pulls away just as I expect to feel him, studying me with
my lips pursed and my eyes lightly closed. "You're so beautiful; I love
looking at you. I never feel as real in this world as I do when I'm with you.
I'm only relevant because of you."
Finally his lips crash into mine
and the taste of his mouth ignites my passion. The strength of his impressive
lips sends chills down my arms as I move my legs from under him, opening them
for him to fall comfortably in between.
Slowly I move my hands up his body,
tenderly enjoying him and his deliberate movements, the tilting of his head so
that our mouths fit like a puzzle, a dangerously strong hand gently moving my
hair, his well-controlled hips grinding into mine as if to some music I cannot
hear. Both of us have been affected by the romance of the day and we are
longing for a deep consummation of our love.

East coast born and raised, I'm married, extremely happily, with 4 kids, 3 of
which are now young adults (not sure when that happened).
I’m a COO in my technology-based "day job,” which requires a mix of
technical and creative writing for both internal and client-facing materials,
but it was not satisfying my artistic spirit. Writing the “Charity” series has
been absolutely fulfilling and exciting.
My favorite writing takes place on my phone while lying on the Southernmost
Beach in Key West, where I try to go at least twice a year.
