After three years caring for her dying mother, Layla Callaway learns she was adopted under unusual circumstances. Following a cryptic message to seek her birth family in Oregon, Layla uproots her life to find out the truth about her past. And herself.

The door opened, and Rhosewen slipped inside, flashing a smile as she clicked the latch into place. Aedan smirked at her stubbornness. Then his breath caught in his chest as she stepped into the moonlight.

She wore a wispy, white nightgown with thin straps and a deep neckline, displaying her slender collarbones and firm cleavage.

Aedan swallowed a lump then slid his gaze down her curvy waist, his lips parting with a reverent sigh. The hem of her gown wafted around her upper thighs, giving him his first full view of her legs, which were even better than he’d imagined, and he’d imagined them perfect.

She walked toward him, her ivory skin glittering with every fluid step. “Were you sleeping?” she whispered, climbing into bed.

Aedan rolled onto his side and propped his head on his hand, scanning her from head to toe. “Nuh-uh.”

She wiggled closer. “I was missing you.”

“What a coincidence,” he whispered, drifting his thumb over her cheek. “I was missing you.”

He wanted to see the rest of her body, the parts hidden beneath the thin nightgown. They called his name, testing his self-control. “You have a fantastic body, Rose. If you’re here to tempt me, mission accomplished.”

His fingertips slid into the V of her gown then flitted to her side, trailing over her hip to her thigh. Goosebumps followed, and she giggled, cuddling closer to his warm body.

“How tempted are you?” she asked.

He returned his fingers to her cheek, tilting her head back to find her eyes. “Very, but I don’t want to push my luck.”

“You’re sweet,” she whispered, searching his gaze, “and I love that about you, but right now, there’s something else I want.”

“I’ll give you the world, Rose.”

“I don’t want the world. I want you to stop being so polite to my parents and start making love to me.”

“Here?” he laughed.

“Now,” she soberly confirmed, wrapping a hand around the back of his neck.
