The Legend of a Rogue by Darcy Burke

“Shouldn’t I be on top again?” she asked, tracing the scar that stretched across his shoulder blade that he’d sustained at Culloden. “I realize your wounds are mostly healed, but I’d hate for you to tear the stitches in your arm.”

He let out a throaty laugh. “If you insist. Or, if you’d care to move to your side, I can show you another way.” He rolled away from her, and she turned to face him.

He shook his head. “Other way.”

Desire pulsed in her core as she rolled over and presented her back to him. “Like this?”

“Just like that.” He stroked his hand up her back as he pushed her hair aside and kissed her nape. Then he trailed his hand down her collarbone and cupped her breast. She gasped as he rolled her nipple between his thumb and forefinger.

“You are the story I always hoped my life might be,” she said softly, arching into his touch.

He kissed the side of her ear and whispered, “Then let us write it.”
