MAKING HER HIS
A Singular Obsession Novel Book 1
BY LUCY LEROUX
For almost five years, Alex has had one obsession. Her name is Elynn.
Alex Hanas couldn’t believe that after so many years as a widower, his father was getting remarried. To make matters worse, the American gold digger had a kid–a daughter named Elynn. After months of avoiding it, Alex goes to brunch with every intention of giving his father’s new family the deep freeze. But he can’t pull it off with Elynn’s anxious green-grey eyes locked on him.
That was the day his life changed.
Four years later, Alex is as close to Elynn as a stepbrother can be. But that’s not enough for him. He wants more…and he’s done waiting.
“Why aren’t you in bed?”
“Why do you think? We need to talk, and we would have been doing it a lot sooner, but I got lost. This place is ridiculously large,” she said, crossing her arms.
“We don’t need to talk,” he said, eyeing her crossed arms as if she was about to punch him.
Elynn’s mouth dropped open. “You’re kidding, right?”
Guilt flashed in his dark eyes before his face settled into a cold expressionless mask. “Elynn, go to bed. We’ll talk in the morning.”
“Hey!” she said reaching out to touch his taught cheekbones. “Don’t do that. Don’t shut me out.”
Alex expelled a loud breath before covering her hand with his much larger one. “I’m sorry about earlier,” he said softly.
“I’m…I’m not sure you should be,” she said slowly, her face heating along with every other part of her body.
She waited for a response, but he didn’t say anything. Embarrassed, she tried to pull her hand away, but he stopped her. He put his hands on her hips and slowly drew her closer.
“No? Really? You don’t have an overwhelming urge to kick me in the nuts?”
“No,” she said, laughing, dropping her head to avoid his intense gaze, but the sight of his big hands on her waist did nothing to calm her down. If her heart beat any faster, she was going to pass out.
Why had their relationship changed so suddenly? She had a million questions, but it was hard to find the words when she was feeling so lightheaded.
“Because,” was all Alex said before he pulled her up and set her down on the hood of the car.
He took her face in his hands and tilted her chin up so she was forced to look at him. Heart pounding, she studied his face. Suddenly he was unfamiliar, a stranger staring down at her with burning eyes.
He looks like a fallen angel sent to earth to tempt mortal woman into giving up their souls. Shaken by the turn her thoughts had taken, she let out a startled laugh. A brief answering smile lit his face, but it was gone the instant his hands parted her bathrobe.
“Alex froze when he saw the nightgown she was wearing. His eyes flared with a hunger she had never seen on his face. With a hand that might have been trembling slightly, he caressed the exposed upper half of her breasts, which were displayed like a confection in the low cut square neckline. His fingers ran along the top of the full mounds, which were just a little too large for her frame.
Elynn gasped aloud when he pulled down the bodice of her gown…
