Sneak Peak into the book
She longed for commitment, and he waited for the signs that indicated she wanted that commitment with him. Within the hour, they found themselves secluded in the night. The stars shone without the moon, and again he reached for the boundaries where they had lingered before.
Hadriel pushed her up against the car. He pressed his body against hers. She felt his pulsating erection through his jeans. Hadriel slightly lifted her mini-skirt and ran his fingers along her inner thighs. He kissed her earlobes and he whispered seductive secrets to her soul.
Her breathing grew shallow. She quivered beneath Hadriel’s caress. She was the delicacy of his desires, and he knew that the intense cauldron of her sensuality embodied the poisons of his predilection. She was what it meant to be a girl to love. That night, Hadriel Alighieri indulged in the idea that she was his girl. He abruptly pulled away, and recomposed himself before he helped her into her car. With a kiss and a whisper, he bid her farewell for the night.
