Kiss of Deceit by Patricia A. Rasey

Author: Patricia A. Rasey

Title: Kiss of Deceit

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Publisher: Amber Quill Press


Formats: ebook and print

Marcus "Snake" Gallego lives in the fast lane. Play hard, ride fast, die young. But nothing seems to touch him, not until his faithless wife turns up dead, and a pretty little detective slams his head against a bar, cuffing his hands behind his back.

LeAnne McVeigh has a murderer to catch and "Snake" is a prime suspect according to her fiancé, the County prosecutor. She fights her growing attraction to the biker, but the pull is too strong to ignore and more than that, he proves to be her friend in adversity.


He had been wrong. There lay passion beneath the stiff exterior of LeAnne McVeigh, but words could not describe the fire and magnetism between them. He had followed her, angry at her parting words.

Damn her for not understanding, damn her for not caring.

His wife lay dead a mere fifty feet away, and here the sweet detective was, making him forget.

But he was a man of passion, a man with needs. Debra Lewis had been his only affair before or after Jillian met her fate, and he had regretted that--every last minute.

Now, here he was again, desiring a woman who belonged to another. And he had no doubt that if he bedded LeAnne McVeigh, the good Prosecutor Baker would make him regret ever laying a hand on her. His life would probably become a living hell. But what else in the last three months had he to live for?
Screw ethics.

He moved his hand down her back and cupped the soft cheek of her derriere. A perfect fit. He felt the sudden apprehension in her kiss, but he used his skilled tongue to coax her, soothe any misgivings she might have.

He left her mouth, his lips making a trek to her ear. Her breath came in short pants; her head tilted to the side. A soft moan escaped her lips.

"We shouldn't..." she whispered. "The caretaker..."

"Can watch," he said huskily before dipping his tongue into her ear.

She trembled beneath his touch. "We can't," she said, though her fingers tangled in the hair at the base of his head, telling Snake a different story.

"We can." He nipped at her earlobe and the small silver hoop hanging there.


"Screw him."

Her body tensed, causing him to sense her withdrawal.

Removing his hand from her backside, he slipped it beneath the short skirt and silk panties, cupping her bare flesh. Her intake was sharp but she did not move from his embrace as her eyes met his.

His fingers kneaded the soft skin.

"Don't," she whispered.

He knew when to back off and he was not far from it. Yet he could not resist the urge to push the boundaries. "You want me as much as I do you." He glared at her. "Deny it."

She pushed at his chest. "You're so full of yourself, Gallego."

He tightened his hold on the small of her back and held her firmly against his pulsing erection. "Deny it," he ordered.

When she did not, he moved his hand lower and dipped into the cleft of her thighs, feeling how close to the truth he was. Her eyes widened and her pulse beat heavily at the base of her throat. Snake grinned, then pulled his hand from her.

"Deny it. You're so wet--"

"Damn you, Snake," she spat, pushing herself from his embrace and stepping back a few steps.

With her kiss-reddened lips and mussed hair, she looked like she had just stepped from the sack. Too bad it wasn't his. The nearly painful ache in his groin told him just how much he regretted the sudden separation. There would be no soothing his ache today--maybe never.

She smoothed back the hair slipping from her braid. "You're such an egotist. You wouldn't know how to seduce a woman if you tried."

"I don't think I was doing such a bad job a minute ago."

"Shows how little you know."

His ire peaked. He raised one brow. "Care for me to prove that fact to you again?"

"Go to hell."

"I'm already there, sweetheart."
