Billionaire's Secret Baby : A Second Chance Romance by Jennifer Hartley

Prologue





Andre





My heart pounded as Lillian’s chest heaved up to meet mine. Her skin was flush with want and excitement; it was proof I was doing something right, at least. Each of her breaths made her swell with heat and warmth against me, and I could barely stand it. It drove me crazy to feel her. I dared to slip a hand up her capped sleeve, along her shoulder. My fingers brushed the side of her breast, savoring the sensation of her silky, delicate skin hidden from me only by her lacy white blouse.

My back pressed firmly against the rough wooden trim as Lilly grabbed at my clothing. The scent of my lover outmatched the barn’s woodsy smell as I nipped at her neck and exposed shoulder. I could hear her need in each breath, soft, barely ragged. She tore the buttons off my shirt, pushing her fingertips against my bare chest. I gasped with excitement—when had she grown so bold? How much of her had changed? Each of her inhalations became more urgent, and when I glanced up at her, I savored her wanting expression and ever-so-slightly parted lips. She bit me firmly on my collarbone with her rounded teeth, and I couldn’t contain my gruff growl in response. The painted mare behind us, Lilly’s favorite, was particularly unhappy about having uninvited guests and fidgeted nervously. Thankfully, the animals would be our only witnesses.

Returning her ferocity, I nudged her into the next stall, not aware of the black stallion that occupied it. I was just attempting to find somewhere secretive and uninhabited we could disappear to. I wanted somewhere to hide; we only needed a few moments. That’s all it would take. A few confidential moments hiding in the back of the barn would be enough to satiate our cravings for one another. Feelings we had been fighting for weeks. The horse turned and huffed at us disapprovingly; it did not want visitors. This time, Lilly’s spine met the wall of the stable; I hefted her up, her thighs in my hands and her knees around my hips as I pushed against her, spreading her legs apart even more so she could feel my want through the thick denim of my jeans.

My arms tensed, biceps bulging, and a few veins ridged just below my flesh. As I held Lilly up, she stroked their outline. She was light, but I could feel the muscle she had developed over the summer at the farm, and it took all of my willpower not to devour her, to take things slower. Her strength was clouding my mind, and she nearly made me dizzy when she used her elbows to prop herself onto the edge of the stall, so her chest was more prominent. Lilly puffed out her breasts toward me. She urged me on, encouraged me. I couldn’t stop staring as the crests of her swells bulged from her blouse, the buttons straining against the cloth that held them, threatening to pop at any moment. All it would take was a single flick of my finger to expose her body.

My mouth peppered tender kisses that alternated with love bites and left blooming, pink marks on her golden skin. I treated her with delicate kindness until my overwhelming need to take her made me lash out with a firm grab of her butt or a bite to her flesh. I never drew blood; I would never harm her—not again. I kissed her fiercely, savoring the taste of her sugar-sweet lips. When our mouths weren’t occupied by one another’s, we fought to muffle our sounds of passion. She shuddered in response to my every nip at her skin, and each of those tiny shakes was like a gold medal. My signature crooked grin lifted my cheeks as her flesh prickled over every inch—another reward.

As her excitement rose, her nipples became visible through her stretched blouse. I pinched one delicately, inciting another cry of longing from my lover. Her moan wrapped around me as I bit her collarbone again, the lowest and softest of rumbles came from deep within her chest. Lilly managed to wiggle her way out of my grasp and directed our tangled bodies to the empty stall at the barn’s end.

The moment we reached our destination, she shoved my pants down, exposing my boxers and my erect cock straining against the cotton. I kicked them into the empty space behind me, used to store loose hay for the livestock. Her eyes were on me, tracing my hardened, upright manhood with lust. As she fell backward into the sweet-smelling straw, I tugged her shirt over her head and landed on top of her.

Straddling her, my knees dug deep into the dried grass on either side of her hips. My firm grip on her breasts over her bra brought me another prize—a moan of pleasure. Like that of a wolf, she trained her steel-blue eyes on me—so enchanting. I could fall into them and be lost forever. Every little noise urged me on, and I slid down her body, trailing kisses down the line etched between her breasts to her bellybutton. My fingers undid the clasp to her pants, and I started to tug them off of her hourglass hips.
