Sample text

This wasn’t the sort of woman she was. If she offered a kiss to any of them, they might believe it was an invitation for more. And she wasn’t prepared to take another lover. This dilemma was Gunnar’s fault. Were it not for him, she wouldn’t have run this race. Suddenly the solution was easy, for there was only one man it was safe to kiss—someone who didn’t want her. She strode towards Gunnar and saw his amusement transform into apprehension. “I’m sorry,” she apologized to Clár, who had come to stand beside Gunnar.

Would it be warm and firm? Even more, what would it be like to feel his body moving upon hers? Without warning, she thought of his promise, that a woman truly could enjoy joining with a man.
