Since being orphaned, Meg’s only happiness or freedom has been swimming at the cove. She and her younger brother have been forced to live under the brutal thumb of their uncle, a man who takes every opportunity to bestow the harshest of measures upon his two helpless charges. Meg has withstood his abuse long enough. Tonight, she and her brother are leaving the monster’s home forever, and today, she will visit the cove for the last time.
As she leaves the water, clothed only in the most transparent of garments, a man moves from the surrounding rocks. She knows she’s as good as naked to his view, but she doesn’t care. With daring strides, she meets him head on, without a flicker of trepidation. She yearns for the pleasure promised in his dark gaze and tempting smile. Then she discovers the white-hot lust of his devastating kiss…
