TODAY I'm sharing a final sampling of Hold My Hand before I switch it up for February. Enjoy this treat!
“It’s not just for the night, or even the week, that I want you, Aubrey.” His voice softened, his expression still focused on me but gentler now, “I want to keep you, to own you. I need you to be mine.”
“Yes. I want that.” I was in shock he was taking me back so easily. I hadn’t been sure he’d forgive me. I hadn’t been sure I deserved his forgiveness. I left him. I’d turned my back on this magnificent man and now, here he was, accepting me back into his life.
“You will not leave me again.” William let go of my waist, opened his arms and I walked into them. I was home again.
A story about Aubrey, a young woman filled with hurt, and William, a man who can't walk away. They're navigating through a relationship that may have too many hurdles... or perhaps not, as long as she can hold his hand.
Aubrey has been hurt in the past, discouraged and degraded by a heartless father. Still, William sees something in her that won't allow him to walk away. Instantly drawn to her but intuitive enough to take it slowly, he courts her. Then he bargains, persuades and seduces until Aubrey becomes ensnared by his commanding nature. Despite the fight she puts up in accepting William's lifestyle, the bonds he places on Aubrey give her a freedom she desperately needs. And together, they heal old wounds and find their perfect love.
