Embry let out a soft moan as she snuggled into the warmth of the strong arms around her. She was exactly where she wanted to be. And for the first time in almost a week, she felt content, happy…except for the slight pounding in her skull. She cracked her eyes open, peeking out from beneath her lashes, only to slam them shut again when the sunlight assaulted her too-sensitive vision. Ouch.Laying in bed for a few minutes longer, she waited for the hazy fog to lift from her brain and her eyes to adjust to the bright light of day.
The arms around her tightened and their owner let out a low, sleepy groan. At the sound, Embry stiffened and her eyes popped open. Suddenly, the sweet warmth of his body was a searing fire burning her bare skin and sending her into a panic. Slowly dragging herself from his embrace, she sat up in the bed. Her gaze traveled the room, taking in her surroundings before looking down at herself and realizing her clothes were missing, save barely there bra and panties. Taking a deep breath, she bolstered her resolve and glanced over her shoulder. The man asleep next to her was on his back, arm thrown over his head, his hard-lined chest and abs on display.
Embry’s stomach dropped violently and tears began to fall freely from her eyes. Oh no. No, no, no.
