After vowing to never let herself get hurt like that again, good girl Anna has put her past behind her, working hard to become a successful financial advisor living in London. But when she returns to her hometown in Connecticut, she has no idea she’s about to be on a collision course with her past.Jaxon Hale wasn’t expecting to run into Anna when he left his real estate development company in Los Angeles for a visit to Connecticut. And he certainly wasn’t expecting Anna to be all grown up. Before long, he’s remembering what it was the two of them had all those years ago, and he’s having a hard time keeping his hands off her.But will Anna be able to let herself trust Jaxon again? Or will a second chance lead to a second heartbreak?Excerpt:His finger moved down over her mouth, his thumb stopping for a moment to rub against her bottom lip. His index finger traced a flaming trail down over her chin, across her neck, and down over her collarbone.Anna bit her lip, willing herself not to cry out. This man, this moment, had been what she’d been thinking and dreaming about for years, and now that it was finally here, the reality of it was almost too much for her to bear.“You look sexy when you bite your lip like that, Princess,” Jaxon growled. He’d inched closer to her, his mouth so close to hers that she could feel his breath against her cheek. “If you don’t stop, I might do something I’ll regret.”Anna licked her lip, then bit it again, daring him to follow through.“I’m serious, Princess,” he drawled. The side of his mouth tugged up into that sensuous grin. “Don’t tease me like that. If you start something, you best be prepared to finish it.”“Oh, I’m prepared,” Anna said.“You sure about that?”Anna wasn’t. But she nodded anyway, unable to take the idea that he might stop touching her, might take away the feeling of ecstasy that was rushing through her body.He moved his face closer to hers, and she felt his breath brush against her cheek. A hot shiver slid up her spine.His eyes locked on hers, his gaze penetrating. The urge to kiss him flooded her body, but she was frozen, unable to move, unable to feel anything but his eyes on hers. Just looking at him was setting her body on fire.His finger was still on her collarbone, drawing lazy circles. The slow burn of his touch was so contradictory to how much she wanted him it made her almost dizzy...
