Mediko Jared Estro is a brilliant scientist, head of the mediko team on the Drastan fleet, and a well respected member of the Drastan community. So why does he lose all common sense the moment he is around the beautiful human female?
Lily Tyner survives losing her husband during a nuclear disaster and raised her young son in the most inhospitable environment. She will do anything to give her son Thomas a better life. Even if that means putting up with a self-righteous alien who is too good looking for his own good.
Both of them are haunted by tragedies in their past. Nothing worth having is ever easy, which is what these two find out when someone else wants to claim Lily for their own. Will they let their past keep them from making a future together? Or will these two strong wills seek comfort in each other and in the end find their Atonement?
Jared had full lips that weren’t too soft, but they were firm and demanding. His tongue caressed and teased the seam of her mouth. She shivered when he pulled her body into his; the heat from him wrapping around her like a blanket. He slid his hands up her arms and then down her sides. She kept her lips sealed, but with his persistence and his hands starting to roam her body, she didn’t know how long she would be able to last.
He growled, “Open for me, beautiful.”
Lily caved and did what they both wanted, opening her mouth for his invasion. Her arms lifted of their own accord to wrap around his neck. It was like a light had suddenly turned on inside of her and she was feeling dizzy from the brightness. She clung to him, to the warmth, and she sought a balance. She wanted desperately to wrap her legs around him and cling to him like a monkey to a tree.
The spinning increased when he lifted her up, moving them until her back hit the wall. He was so strong, and he held her like she weighed nothing. The neat bun her hair had been in, loosened, and long dark strands cascaded down her shoulders. His fingers were caressing her and using the strands to hold her so he could deepen the kiss.
Jared didn’t just kiss her, he made love to her mouth until she was completely and utterly breathless. No one had ever kissed her like it was the only thing in the world they wanted to do.
