Introducing author, LILLY WILDE, and her favorite recipe for THAI FRIED RICE.
ONLY HIS TOUCH
The Untouched Series, Book Five
By LILLY WILDE
The pain of deceit was fresh, but love and desire overruled everything else. Now, Aria and Aiden face their greatest challenge yet.
Aria Cason’s life took an unexpected turn when she reconnected with Aiden Raine, the man who awakened a pure and undeniable love she’d thought was lost forever. Aria’s love for him burns deep, yet he still pushes for more—the total surrender of her heart. When a painful memory becomes her guiding light, she questions if a happily ever after really exists for a girl who never wanted one.
After stepping away from his birthright, Aiden’s need to protect his new family becomes his top priority. Fragile bonds are soon stretched to the breaking point as his need for vengeance threatens to destroy the very thing he’s come to value most. When his unyielding determination starts to push Aria away, he presents her with a challenge that will test them both.
Will the searing passion that reunited this couple keep them together, or will it burn them to ash?
Ties will be broken. Lies will become the truth. Aria and Aiden’s heart-wrenching story continues in the fourth book of The Untouched Series, Only His Touch.
ONLY HIS TOUCH
The Untouched Series, Book Five
By LILLY WILDE
I stepped under the stream of water and reached up, touching his face. He lowered his head and kissed me. I was like a wild animal, licking his lips and then his tongue, kissing the tip and then sucking it hard, pulling it into my mouth. He took control of the kiss and slowed my pace, drawing me closer to his hard body, molding me to him. His tongue was in my mouth, building my arousal, seducing me into a world that always took me to the edge. His kiss did that to me. It was like sex—it was the capture and total surrender of my mind and body.
Once he broke our kiss, he stepped back and looked down at me, his dark eyes seductive and hungry. I knew what he wanted. He wanted me naked—he wanted to be inside me. I lifted the wet shirt over my head and tossed it aside. Unsnapping the front of my bra, I let it drape open and I watched as his eyes left my face and skimmed my swollen breasts. They were pleading for the pleasure of his touch. His gaze dropped to my pants and then his eyes met mine, the darkening of his irises communicating exactly what he expected of me. I shimmied out of the wet jeans and was wearing only my panties.
“Come on. Don’t stop now,” he coaxed.
