What would you like me to do? #MidWeekTease #asmsg Keeping Secrets

Welcome back to Mid-Week Tease hosted by the fabulous Sandra Bunino where writers share excerpts from published works or works-in-progress.

This week, I'm sharing one last teaser from Keeping Secrets. It'll be that last teaser from this book for a while as I return to writing a new story. The final instalment of Benjamin and Selina's story is screaming to be finished. You'll get a teaser from that next week over at the Passion Shields blog.

In the meantime, I'll leave you with a little from Felix and Ebony in Keeping Secrets.  I think the scene describes itself. I hope you enjoy it.



Ebony walked out of the en-suite bathroom and stopped. Felix sat on the bed, taking his shirt off. At the sight of the broad shoulders, taut pectorals, and rippling bicep muscles, her breath caught in her throat and a warm shiver crept up her back. Fascinated, she stared at him with undisguised hunger, lips parted, body flushed.
He tossed the shirt aside and their gazes met. His cheek dipped with a dimple, his smile oh-so-sexy.
Lava pooled low in her belly. She swiped clammy hands over the silk negligee covering her thighs.
What was the matter with her? Felix had been injured, sex probably the last thing on his mind. She needed to concentrate on making him comfortable.
“Can I help you with something?” she asked, keeping her tone jovial. But her face heated up when his lips curled in a wicked grin.
“Sure, you can. Come here.” His deep, husky voice sent her heart racing with anticipation. Her awareness of him racked up to scorching level.
Legs trembling a little, she walked over to him and stopped at arm’s length. Desire filled his eyes, turning them into fiery onyx. An ache settled in her core, a need for him to kiss her again, to feel his hands setting her skin ablaze. She wanted to taste him, to touch him. Yet, she hesitated.
“What would you like me to do?” she asked, not sure if he wanted help with his trousers, unable to keep her eyes away from his stomach muscles tapering into them. She tried to keep her thoughts on what needed to be done. The loose-fitting cargo pants were probably the only things he could wear with the plaster cast on his ankle. With zippers at the sides and on the hems, it could come off easily
“Come closer,” he demanded in a low, growling voice.


Blurb
Have you ever loved someone and didn’t even know it?

That’s the dilemma facing Felix Essien when he wakes from a coma to find he is married to the most beautiful and sensual woman he’s ever known. He cannot remember her or their wedding; he who had sworn never to get married or to give his heart to another. Yet, he feels an intense bond with her that he intends to explore fully.

Ebony can’t believe her good fortune when her paper husband wakes not remembering the temporary marriage arrangement with no intimacies he’d proposed, and is now the adoring husband she’s always dreamt of.

She plans to make the most of the passion blossoming between them. However, would he still feel that way when he regains his memory and realises she’s been keeping secrets and their marriage is not what he thinks it is?
