Exclusive Excerpt: Dare to Take by Carly Phillips
A one night stand.
A mistake they tried to forget.
On leave from the army, Tyler Dare is just looking for a little fun, but his best friend's sister is off limits. Yet unable to deny how sexy and alluring she is, he finds it all too easy to succumb to a night of passion and heat that ends the next morning in the worst way possible.
There are just some guys you don't touch--even someone as innocent and inexperienced as Ella Shaw knows that. But when her brother's best friend is up for grabs and willing, she can't resist. After all, she's wanted him for years…
Now, Ella is stranded on a tropical island with a hurricane bearing down, and only Tyler can save her. It's his chance to make amends for the past and show the woman he's never forgotten that he's coming after her . . . in more ways than one.
“Do you feel that?” he asked.
“The heat.” He nipped at her earlobe. “The anticipation.” He tugged harder, and desire shot through her body. “We’re combustible.” As if to prove his point, he kissed her neck, an open-mouthed, wet kiss that had her nipples hardening beneath the cotton of her shirt.
He grazed his teeth across her shoulder and pulled the strap of her top with his teeth before releasing. “Have to get rid of this. I want to see those pretty breasts. My last glimpse was way too short.”
She blushed at the reminder of her tank top slipping in their shared room on the island, but she was way too aroused to remain embarrassed for long. If his goal was to seduce her into calmness, he was succeeding, both with his words and his touch.
“You with me?” he asked.
