"Let me show you how different I am,"
Cole drawled huskily. He claimed Carla's lips, rubbing across them in slow
motion with a coaxing intensity that made her wild with yearning. She'd never
been kissed like this before. It was amazing . . . it was awful . . . she felt
eager . . . she felt appalled.
When Cole finally released her, his
breath was ragged and his hands were shaking against her arms, knowingly aware
that Carla had tried to resist him. "What am I going to do about you?" Carla
was at a loss. "I don't know." Cole's gaze met her sable eyes. "So Darnell
Farrell hurt you, and now you think every man is going to treat you the same
way he did. Well, Carla, take a good look. I'm Cole Richmond, not Darnell
Farrell. If you think you're going to confuse the two of us in your mind, then
maybe it's time you made me kiss you again . . .
