The dark, dominant, tattooed Spaniard has all the arrogant machismo of a bullfighter and a body carved out of steel. In my sister’s fairytale romance, he almost destroyed my family. He’s the devil, and I hate him.
Until he saved my life, and changed everything.
Toro is the last man in the world I expect to find pulling me
of the way of danger. He’s cocky, crude, and dangerously tempting. He oozes sex and the promise of breaking every rule I’ve ever made. Bad boy? Yeah, no, there’s nothing

Innocent, uptight, and sexy as sin. Her sister may have almost killed me, her family put me in prison. That doesn’t mean I’m not dying to find out if she’s as much of a firebrand in bed as she is while she’s chasing me down, trying to put me away again.
That is, I’m curious until she’s got a gun pressed to my chest, flashing me a badge.
Yeah, Special Agent Chelsea Archer isn’t just “off-limits”; she’s the f*cking enemy. She’s the last girl in the world I need to have a damn thing to do with. Because if she gets close to someone like me, I’m going to destroy her. I’m going to ruin her in such perfect ways and have her scream my name like I’m the last man on Earth.

And I'm very,

"I'm trying to save you."
She barks out a sneering laugh; "I don’t need saving; not from
"Get close to me and you will," I growl.
Get close to me and I'll destroy you, even if I don't want to and even if I do everything on Earth to try and stop it.
It'll still happen, because that's just me and the fucked up reverse Midas touch that follows me. Good things wither and die around me, and something as bright and as pure as her doesn't stand a fucking chance.
"I'm a big girl."
"I'm a bad man."
My hand slides up her arm, and before I can stop myself, I’m snaking it around her waist, exploring the curve of her hip as I pull her closer. I want to push her away - I know I
push her away - but I can’t even begin to conceive of doing that right now. Not when she feels so fucking good under my touch.
"My job is to catch bad men and lock them up," She whispers quietly, her eyes still flashing heat and fire as she matches my own hot gaze with her own.
"That a fact, princess?" I move closer, pulling her against me; "You think you can catch me? Think you can put me anywhere I don’t want to go?" I growl, my jaw tightening.
"I always get what I go after.“
She's so close, and my pulse is roaring like a lion ready to pounce in for the kill. I'm such bad news for her, but if she says one more fucking word, I’m going to take her right here and right now. I'm going to claim her, make her mine, and have her screaming my name as she comes like it's the last name on Earth.
"I’m a bad, bad man, princess," I say with fire and danger on my breath.
"Oh yeah?" She swallows and looks at me defiantly; "
." She whispers.
Don't say I didn't warn you
I yank her body against mine as my mouth crashes against hers, and I feel her absolutely melt into me.
She tastes like heaven and moves against me like original sin as her hands snake into my hair, pulling me into her. I push us backwards, pressing her against the side of the flat-top rock near the fire, pressing myself against every sweet delicious curve of her body.
