Teaser Tuesday: This Man by Jodi Ellen Malpas

(make sure you don’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)

    Young interior designer Ava O’Shea has an appointment for a first consultation at The Manor with the owner, Mr Jesse Ward. She is expecting nothing more than an overweight, cravat wearing, well-to-do countryman, and on arrival, nothing would suggest otherwise. How wrong could she be? This Man is devastatingly handsome, charming and confident. He is also a conceited, hedonistic playboy, who knows no boundaries. Ava desperately does not want to be attracted to him, but she can’t control the overwhelming affect he has on her. Every instinct is telling her to run, so she does, but Jesse Ward is not so willing to let her go. He wants her and is determined to have her. She knows she is heading for heartbreak, but how can she run when he won’t let her?

**Teasers contain sexually suggestive content and language**
   'I look forward to hearing from you, Ava.' His husky voice rolls over my flesh as he joins me at the bottom of the stair, putting his hand out. I take it in mine for fear that if I don't, he may well clench me and place his lips on me again.
   'You have a lovely hotel.' I say genuinely.
 I'm beginning to wish that my handbag contents consisted of a spare pair of knickers, a blindfold, ear plugs and some armor. I might have been more prepared.


'Just tell me one thing before you leave, Ava.' His voice prickles at my senses, and I  find my eyes travelling up the leanness of his body until our stares meet. His face is serious, but still stunning. 'How loud do you think you'll scream when I f*ck you?'
