If there's one thing that Janica Ellis is absolutely certain of, it's that she and Luke Carson are totally wrong for each other. She's a wild, artistic and outspoken fashion designer. He's a type A, workaholic trauma surgeon (who just happens to be sizzling hot and her brother-in-law!). But Janica is about to be proven wrong when opposites attract...in the sexiest possible way.After a life-changing night in the ER, Luke is desperate for escape - and relief from his personal demons. For five years he has fought his attraction to his sister-in-law, but when he's pushed too far, he can't fight it another second. He needs her. Desperately. He's spent his whole life doing the right thing. For one night, he's going to follow desire instead. Straight into Janica's arms.Janica can't believe Luke is finally at her front door...and that he's kissing her like he's been waiting his whole life to touch her. But even as their sensual connection deepens with every touch of skin on skin - and the man she always thought was such a good boy turns out to be sinfully, toe-curlingly bad between the sheets - Janica soon realizes she wants more than Luke's body. She wants his heart too. But what will Luke do when one night of extreme passion turns into an all or nothing proposition? EXCERPT:Janica couldn't get enough of Luke.She could feel the warmth of his skin beneath his clothes as her hands roamed down his back, then back up and across his broad, muscular shoulders, but it wasn't good enough. She wanted to know the feel of him beneath her fingertips.Skin on skin.She couldn't remember ever feeling so utterly consumed by a man. Sex had always been at the top of her favorite-things list, but this desire "this total, all-encompassing need "was something else entirely.So different, in fact, that as she yanked his T-shirt out of his pants and broke their kiss long enough to pull it up over his head, she started freaking out a little bit.So many years she'd dreamed of this moment, so many years she'd thought it would never come, and now that it had, she felt almost frightened.She lifted her eyes to his at the exact moment that her heart said a silent, "I love you."No!She stumbled back from Luke, or tried to, but his arms were faster than she was.She hadn't read love in his eyes at any point so far tonight, only lust. Pure lust. And now he was saying, SYes or no? in a low voice that rumbled through her entire body like a sensual earthquake.Oh god. It couldn't be true.She couldn't be in love with Luke.Of all the stupid things to feel for him, love was definitely the stupidest.She swallowed hard, made herself locate her voice, which felt like it had dropped way down deep into her toes. STo what question? STonight. This. You and me. Ah, now she got it. He was asking her if she could forget about who they were. About their past. About how this could thoroughly complicate their future. He was asking her to make a choice between risking everything she was for this one night...or running scared from it.She hadn't been afraid of anything for a very long time. So why, she wondered helplessly, was she afraid now? And why had her brain actually thrown the word love into the mix? SYou already know the answer. SI want to hear you say it, Janica. I need to hear you say it. His need rocked through her. She couldn't say no to him. Just as she couldn't say no to her own desperate need.She licked her lips. Opened her mouth. Finally whispered, SYes.
