Exclusive Excerpt from The Highland Duke
by Amy Jarecki
“I want to kiss you, lass.”
Her chin inched up ever so slightly.
His hand moved back and cradled her head while his mouth inclined toward her rose-petal lips, then lightly brushed his mouth over the most delectable lips in all the world.
Her wee moan made a fire hotter than the flames of Hades burn deep and low inside him. Gradually lowering her to the earth, he reverently savored her. Every fiber of his body stirred to life, the blaze in his loins raging like a fire gone wild.
Dear God, he had to keep himself under control, hold his lust at bay. But all that consumed his mind was kissing Akira while her supple breasts caressed him. Drawing a ragged breath, he groaned and tasted her, threading his fingers through her black tresses. Luxurious hair he’d been longing to rake his fingers through since he’d first laid eyes on her. Hair so soft, it could be mistaken for spun silk. Every beat of his heart hammered, begging him to devour her.
But the woman in his arms was the young maid who’d saved him. The lass who’d cast aside her doubts to help a wounded man she hardly knew flee from a mob of redcoats. Moreover, the lass cared not an iota about Government or Jacobite agendas. She cared about her family and finding the next meal. Akira wasn’t to be taken like a harlot, but to be cherished and savored. He tenderly spread her lips with his tongue, stroking her with soft, unhurried licks, showing her how to kiss a man.

She'll put her life on the line for him…
When Akira Ayres finds the brawny soldier with a musket ball in his thigh, she has no qualms about doing whatever it takes to save his life. Even if it means fleeing across the country to tend his wounds while the English redcoats are closing in. Though she's never been in battle, Akira is just as fierce and brave as any of her Scottish kinsman. But even she's intimidated by the fearsome, brutally handsome Highlander who won't reveal his clan name.
Yet she can never know his true identity…
Geordie knows if Akira ever finds out he's really the Duke of Gordon, both her life and his will be forfeit in a heartbeat. The only way to keep the lass safe while his enemies are on the hunt is to make sure she's by his side day and night. But the longer he's with her, the harder it becomes to think of ever letting her go. Despite their differences in class, despite the danger, he will face down death itself to make her his.
