She shifted to her knees in the middle of the bed, heart quickening at the idea that Shane may be watching, but desire at Alex's commanding presence in front of her. With a yank, she pulled the sweater over her head and tossed it aside.
"Touch yourself like you did this morning," he said, gaze feasting on her breasts.
She grabbed each breast in the palm of her hand and lifted them up, squeezed them together, her thumbs flicking over the nipples. She never looked away from his face.
"Now strip all the way. I want you naked."
She stood on the bed, feeling more daring than she'd ever felt with his eyes devouring her every move. She shimmied free of first her pants before slowly guiding the panties over her hips.
He knelt on the side of the bed and ran his hands up the sides of her legs. "You are magnificent, Sierra."
He slid a hand between her thighs and moved his thumb in a circular motion around her clit, teasing but not touching the sensitive spot that ached for his full attention. He licked the inside of her knee.
Standing above him like this, fully exposed in the light, had all of her nerve endings snapping with both uncertainty and desire.
From the back cover....
Only the good die young. When Shane Weston is murdered before prosecuting a key member of the Mexican drug cartel, he can't accept the idea that all of the plans he had had for his life will never come true. More than that, he can't let go of the love he has for his fiancée.
Love never dies. Sierra Daniels is crushed after Shane's death. Head writer on a successful television series, she can't get back into the groove of life. All enthusiasm for work is gone. Ready to quit everything, she travels to her cabin in Lake Tahoe in hopes of escaping everyone's expectations and disappearing for a while.
The lines between right and wrong often blur. Alexander Blaine has risked his future on a career change from DEA agent to lead consultant and writer on hit television series. Sierra's grief has shadowed everyone around her, including him, and jeopardizes both of their careers. Unwilling to accept defeat, he follows her to Lake Tahoe determined to break through the barrier enveloping her and make her see that life is still worth living.
Letting go is like a death. Sierra never thought she would be caught in a love triangle between her writing partner, Alex, and the love of her life, Shane—especially because her ex-fiancé is now a ghost. Tormented with both guilt for moving on with someone else and a desire to be free of the past, she's into the gray area of right, wrong, life, death, ghosts, dreams—the part of life where all the lines are blurred.
