In Bed With The Boss – excerpt
Trish felt a cold fury sweep over her as resentment for his presumption overcame baser reactions to his nearness. How dare he drag her off like a naughty child! He stopped suddenly outside the double doors leading to the kitchens, well away from the lunch time crowd and pulled her roughly towards him, not letting his hold on her arm slacken for an instant. As she faced him with furious anger in her hazel eyes she noted the blazing fury in his own and suddenly she welcomed this encounter, wanted the chance to strike back at him for causing her so much anguish for the last two days.
‘What the hell do you think you’re doing?’ she asked coldly, ignoring the thrill of his familiar scent and the havoc it was playing with her senses.
‘Is this the reason you avoided me yesterday?’ he hissed at her, barely suppressing the snarl that rose to his lips. ‘Is he the reason?’
‘What business is it of yours?’ she asked coldly, and was rewarded by the flicker of doubt in his intense blue gaze.
‘None!’ he almost yelled the word at her. ‘None,’ he repeated more quietly, and the intensity of his gaze deepened as awareness overrode her anger. Her body seemed drawn to his against her will and she swayed towards him before her mind had registered her body’s surrender. She felt his arms crush her and his mouth descended with clear purpose towards her own. His groan against her lips spoke of the remnants of his anger and the frustration of his reaction even as he raided her mouth with abandon bordering on desperation. Trish could no more help her answering response than she could stop the moan that escaped her own lips as his tongue sought and gained entry to the sweetness within.
‘God,’ he moaned against her lips, ‘what you do to me.’ His hands ran up and down her back in a gloriously possessive gesture and Trish’s fingers were inexorably drawn to his silky hair as she luxuriated in the feel of the soft, fragrant strands.
The sound of the kitchen door being opened behind them caused them to start back guiltily as they once more became aware of their surroundings.
Alexa Bravo “self-published” her first manuscript at age 12, when she typed a one-page romance story in the seventh grade and gave it to the girl sitting next to her in class to read. Before she knew it the story had been passed along from classmate to classmate and Alexa was getting requests for more stories and taking reservations for those already in circulation. Alexa has always been passionate about reading as well as writing and despite her “real job” managing a business, she enjoys as many romance novels as she can fit into her e-reader and also works on her own romantic stories. Alexa is currently completing Brendan’s story based on a secondary character from In Bed With The Boss, and she also has several works in progress covering other genres, including historical romance. Alexa lives in Sydney, Australia with her three beautiful girls and her very indulgent husband.
