A bond broken, victim of deception.

The death of her great aunt leaves Karessa Austin with an old Victorian-style house on the outskirts of Fort Worth, Texas. She decides to remodel it and bring it back to its original beauty. She has no idea there are two ghosts living there…ghosts who happen to be her great-great-grandparents.

Maxwell Hennessey has made a fortune from sunken ships, hidden piles of gold and silver, and unclaimed stocks and bearer bonds. His latest search takes him to Fort Worth, where he believes he’ll find a bearer bond worth millions.

The one kink in his plan is Karessa, the woman who now lives in the house where the bond is hidden. She’s also the woman who can’t stand him. He has to somehow charm her into forgetting about their unsavory past so he has complete access to her house.

He’d never planned to fall in love with her all over again.

(Also contains stories by Liz Maverick and Kimberly Dean. Lynn’s story is available as an individual ebook at online stores.)

She smiled her vixen’s smile, the one that always made him hard. Since he was already hard, this time he growled. Pulling her head closer, he gave her an open-mouth, tongue-dueling kiss.

The whimper in her throat caused the blood to surge in his cock.

“Take off the rest of your clothes. I want you naked.”

She stood up and unfastened her khaki shorts. They fell in a puddle at her feet, leaving her in nothing but a pair of tiny blue panties. He palmed his cock and leisurely stroked it while she hooked her fingers in the waistband of her panties.

Instead of pulling them off, she gave him that vixen smile again. “I have a surprise for you.”

He waited, but she didn’t say anything else. She pulled her panties down an inch. His gaze snapped to that enticing strip of skin between her navel and the top of her panties. She pulled them down another inch. “Are you ready for your surprise?”

“Yeah,” he rasped.

Her panties joined her shorts on the blanket. Max’s mouth dropped open. If possible, his cock became even harder. “You shaved your pussy?”

She nodded.

Max rose to his knees before her. Slipping his hands between her thighs, he pushed gently until she opened her legs. He slid his thumbs over the smooth, silky skin. “When did you do this?”

“I shaved a couple of days ago, then again this morning. I thought you might…like it.”

“I do.” He pulled apart her feminine lips with his thumbs. She was already creamy and swollen, proof of her arousal. “My God, this is sexy.” Leaning forward, he swiped his tongue across her clit. He enjoyed it so much, he did it again. “I love the way you taste.”
