I Heart You
By Aurora Black
Rachel Malone has it all: beauty, brains, and talent. She has brought the world of erotic romance to its knees, but something crucial is missing from her life: a man to play power games with. One night at a routine book signing, she finds the spice she needs in the form of Lucian Drake. Sinfully handsome and more erotic than any hero she's ever written, he is the perfect man to help her live out her wildest fantasies.
When a copy of Rachel's latest steamy offering finds its way into his hands, Lucian Drake can't rest until he meets the woman behind the sensual words. He longs to experience her passion and lose himself in the enigmatic depths of her eyes. As their torrid affair deepens into love, danger lurks in the shadows as someone tries to tear them apart... literally.

He knew her. Perhaps more than anyone had ever dared. He knew what she wanted. From the depth of depravity in her novels, he knew the darker side of the shining public image.
The man sat before the large television, staring straight ahead. Other than the harsh glare of the screen, there was no light in the room. He didn't care, and focused all his concentration on the image that danced across the screen.
In silence, he observed the woman, the television muted. He didn't need sound; it ruined his enjoyment of the show. He didn't need to hear the multitude of inane questions the journalist asked her. He already knew which ones they were and how she would react to them, even which facial expressions she would use while responding.
She was an open book. He wanted to read her from cover to cover before ripping out its pages and scattering them upon the floor. He wanted to tear her apart like paper, make her scream. He wanted to possess her, body and soul. He wanted her to beg for mercy for the pain she caused him.
His cock gave a little twitch inside his jeans at the thought, and he lightly traced his fingers over the growing bulge. She'll be ours soon enough.
