Raoul Zesiger has everything a man could want—including Sirena Abbott, the perfect PA who keeps his life in order. Or so it seems, until their professional relationship gives way to one hot, impassioned night…and then he has her arrested for embezzlement!

.

She may have escaped a prison sentence, but Sirena knows she’ll be shackled to Zesiger by more than just the past. With Raoul determined to recover the debt she owes him, Sirena is torn between guilt and an impossible attraction. But what will happen when Raoul uncovers the truth behind her theft?

Dani Collins’ introduction to her TEMPTATION THURSDAYS excerpt from “A Debt Paid in Passion”:

Sirena was once Raoul’s best PA. Then they had an affair and the very next day, he discovered she had embezzled some money from him. He wanted her to go to prison for it, but she turned up pregnant.

He brings her into his home after she has the baby so they can both care for their daughter, but proximity is rekindling their attraction. They both hear the baby and meet in the hallway.

.

EXCERPT:

Raoul’s voice made the hairs stand up all over her body.  His scent was charged and aggressive, as though he hadn’t quite made it to bed yet while she was sleepy and befuddled.  She became screamingly aware that her hair was everywhere and her thin tank and loose shorts weren’t exactly sexy lingerie.  That was probably a good thing, but she secretly wished she looked attractive.

Idiot.  Get outta Dodge.

“She’s sleeping now,” she mumbled and sidestepped at the same time he did, almost coming up against him as he loomed before her.

It was the foyer in Oxshott again.  Her startled gaze came up in time to see his focus drop to her mouth.  Her heart soared and her mind blanked, just like last time.

Not again, she thought, but couldn’t move, paralyzed by attraction and wonder.

His hand came up and hesitated.  The bare skin of her shoulder waited, nerve endings reaching out in anticipation.  Raoul started to bend his head.

Don’t let it happen, she warned herself with anxious intensity, but her self-preservation instincts were flash-firing so rapidly she couldn’t figure out if she should retreat the wrong way down the hall, barrel through him, or exit into Lucy’s room.

His big hand cradled the side of her face, tilting her mouth up to his as his mouth crashed down on hers on an aggrieved groan.

Don’t—  Oh, do…

Everything about him was strong and the way his mouth covered hers, so confident and hungry, overcame her willpower.  The shape of his lips fit hers perfectly.  When the tip of his tongue parted her lips and tagged her tongue, she shuddered in renewal.  Oh please.  She melted into him.  She couldn’t help it.  She knew how good it could be between them.  Her body remembered the virile feel of his muscles gathering, the fullness of him inside her…

His forearm angled across her back with proprietary strength, tugging her into a soft collision that made her release a throaty cry that he swallowed.  Their nightclothes were no shield.  She felt everything.  The hot roughness of his chest, the flat muscles of his waist under confused hands that didn’t know where to land and the fierce shape of his supremely eager erection.
