BenThose gold eyes were the first thing I noticed. I wanted more than anything to get lost in them, drown in her, to let go of my fears and doubts my past had left behind. But it wasn’t just me I had to consider. My son came first. She's a force to be reckoned with, though. She was everywhere, in my dreams even, tempting me to throw caution to the wind. And I was weak. I gave into my clawing desire and let myself enjoy one night with her, having no clue she’d change me forever. Once wasn't enough. I became addicted. I craved her – her scent, her skin, her smile, her eyes…her love. I need Samantha. Samantha My life was uncomplicated. It was free and easy. Then I met him, the man with the blue-violet eyes that entranced me. I had a feeling I was making a big mistake when agreeing to one night of carnal bliss, but I was unable to walk away. I just couldn’t have foreseen how big of one it was. He turned my world upside-down, working his way into my heart until it beat only for him. Now everything is complex, and there are secrets he’s not telling me. Will he ever let me in? Time would tell, but one thing is sure – I’d walk through hell and back, feel the blistering lick of each flame against my flesh, for just the promise of Ben. Not intended for anyone under the age of eighteen due to language and sexual content. Note from the author: Fated Bliss is the second book in The Bliss Series, and though it is recommended to read Finding Bliss first, it’s not needed. Fated Bliss is a standalone novel with an HEA.

ExcerptWithout a word, Ben placed a hand in the center of my chest and pushed me backward. I cried out in surprise, almost falling over my feet. But I didn’t have to worry. As Ben followed me inside, he encircled my waist and hauled me against his strong body. My belly dipped and heated into a slow kindling. Guess we’re skipping to dessert. Ben kicked the door shut as his head descended. I heard plastic bags rustling and something drop onto my foyer table. Meeting him halfway, I stood on my tiptoes and wrapped my arms around his neck. His presence, his scent infusing the air, everything about Ben being in my home did something to me, something incredible. Our lips crashed together in total abandon. Using his tongue, he pried my lips apart, searching, exploring, and fisted my hair. My back collided with the wall, pinning me to Ben’s control as he kissed me. It was wicked and wet and unrestrained. Hot. My head was swimming, my skin tingling, when he tore his mouth from mine. Mega hot. Dazed, I stared into his brilliant eyes, trying to gain control over myself. He’s a drug, I decided right then and there. One taste and I was euphoric, swept away on a wild ride. “I’ve waited days to do that,” Ben murmured and scattered kisses along my jaw to my ear. “You’re stunning tonight.” I had no idea what he was talking about. Because I knew we’d be doing something along these lines as soon as we saw one another, I wore blue jean shorts and a little tank top, nothing special. Still, I’d take the compliment. “Thanks,” I rasped and combed my fingers through his hair, tilting my head. “You’re not so bad yourself.” Ben’s mouth found mine again. “I missed you,” he expressed between kisses. Biting his lip, I teased, “You saw me two days ago.” “Not enough,” he rumbled and sucked my tongue into his mouth. Knees weak, I melded to him, letting him own me. He could do whatever he wanted to me as long as he kissed me like this. “Bedroom. Now,” Ben demanded.
