He nestled next to her, wrapping an arm protectively around her middle. She looked into his eyes with pure passion. She wiggled closer and kissed him, trying to devour his lips.
He kissed her back, mingling his fingers in her hair. She tasted like honey.
“Frederick,” she said, looking into his eyes, “I don’t want you to go.”
Her words tempted his desire to ask for a deeper connection to her than a dollar of his time. He didn’t want her to just be his client. But he knew to ask would be a death sentence. “We have a few more hours.”
“I want more than a few hours.”
Frederick’s breath stalled in his lungs. What was she asking?
Life without love is painful, but in 1865 forbidden fruit can be deadly. When a wealthy widow decides to enjoy her new-found freedom, she puts more than her reputation on the line. An unwanted suitor means to have her, or no one will. From sizzling sex to life-threatening danger, the intrigue will keep you turning the pages of Midnight Caller, Haley Whitehall’s sizzling new romance.
When Emma Bennett’s husband dies in a carriage accident in 1865, she is released from her loveless, controlling marriage. Now she has a chance to find happiness and raise a family. But before she begins courting again she wants to experience her freedom. At the advice of the leading socialite in town, she takes a black lover to fulfill her sexual needs. His raw, masculine power awakens feelings she didn’t know existed. After the first touch she craves more.
Frederick works as a roustabout by day and moonlights as a prostitute. He knows better than to fall in love with his white client, but Emma enchants him the first time he calls on her. To keep them both safe, he works hard to put up barriers. Unfortunately, he can’t protect Emma from the slimy Mr. Hawthorne, who wants her as his bride. Frederick vows to keep her safe even if his forbidden love costs him his life.
