Title: Stronger (Inevitable #6)
Author: Janet Nissenson
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: October 10, 2017
Cover Designer: Najla Qamber Designs
Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC.

Cara has an admitted problem with hot men, falling so deeply and so quickly under their spell that she loses a little bit of herself with each toxic relationship that always seems to end badly. Every man in her young life thus far has let her down – her high school sweetheart, a college fling, and most of all her self-centered playboy father. She’s determined not to be a sucker for a handsome face and a hard body any longer, and has stuck to her guns for more than two years. And then she meets Dante.

Dante knows he has no business messing with cute little Cara. For one thing she works for his best friend, and more importantly she’s all kinds of wrong for him – too young, too innocent, too kindhearted. And given the mood he’s in these days – after the woman he was ready to propose to chose her career over him – a sweetheart like Cara should be running as fast as she can in the opposite direction.

But the only place Cara wants to run is right into Dante’s arms and stay a good long while. Will he wind up being the one for her – or is she destined yet again for another heartbreak?

                                                       

She stared at him, completely at a loss for words, and unable to believe what she’d just heard.  “Huh?  Are you – I mean, you’re actually asking me to – to go out with you?  And, no, I don’t have a boyfriend or anyone I’m seeing, but I thought you did.  I mean,” she corrected herself hastily, miserably aware that she was babbling like a moron by this point, “not that you had a boyfriend, but a girlfriend.  Of course you don’t have a boyfriend, why would you, because you’re about the least likely person I could think of who – ”

Dante placed his index finger over her lips, giving a quick shake of his head.  “It’s okay,” he assured her, the corners of his mouth lifting up into a smile.  “I know what you meant.  And to answer your question – at least, I think there was a question in there somewhere – I’m not currently seeing anyone either.  I, ah, was in a relationship for a long time but that ended a couple of months ago.”

“Oh.  I’m sorry.  I hope I didn’t, um, touch on a sore spot,” she apologized awkwardly.  

“It’s okay,” replied Dante gently.  “I had a rough time of it for awhile, but I’m happy to say that things are finally starting to look up for me.  And I’d be even happier if your answer to my invitation is yes.”

Cara beamed up at him, nodding enthusiastically.  “It is definitely a yes!  I’d love to have dinner with you tomorrow.”

He glanced around anxiously, as though to make sure no one had overheard their conversation.  “That’s great news, Cara.  Though you should probably keep it to yourself, hmm?  I don’t know what the company policy is about employees socializing with clients, but no sense in rocking the boat, is there?”

“Oh!  Oh, gosh, of course!” she agreed.  “I won’t say anything to the others, I promise.”

Dante looked relieved, then extracted a business card from the inside pocket of his suit jacket before picking up a pen from the holder on her desk.  “Why don’t you meet me in the lobby of my office building?” he suggested, scribbling something on the back side of the little card.  “That way we don’t risk running into anyone here.  If you don’t mind, that is.”

“I don’t mind at all,” Cara answered with enthusiasm.  “What time should I meet you?”

“Let’s say six o’clock?  And I can send a car or a taxi to pick you up.”

She shook her head.  “Your office is less than three blocks away, and it’s not supposed to be raining or anything tomorrow.  Besides, I can use the exercise.”

He gave her one of those sexy, flirty little winks that he was wont to do whenever he stopped by the office.  “I wouldn’t say that,” he replied, his dark eyes giving her a brief but all-too-assessing onceover.  “You look very healthy to me, very fit.”

Cara grimaced.  “That’s because I’m usually sitting down when you see me, and you can’t tell how big my ass is from where you’re standing.”

Dante gave a shout of laughter, causing Deepak to glance over in their direction, frowning at having had his concentration disrupted.  Grinning wickedly, Dante lowered his voice.

“You’re very outspoken, aren’t you?” he asked in amusement.  “I like that.  And I have a feeling this is going to be a very interesting dinner.  Now, I’ve got to run, but I wrote my personal cell number on the back of that card.  Give me a call when you’re on your way tomorrow, so I can be waiting for you in the lobby.”

“Okay.”  She picked up the business card and tucked it into her purse for safekeeping.  “I’ll be looking forward to it.”

“Me, too.”  Dante gave the Minnie Mouse balloon another flick.  “And Happy Birthday, Cara.  Though consider tomorrow night the real celebration.”

Tyronian wanted Namoriee even when he knew he couldn’t have her. The need to possess her was so deep, it took every ounce of mental and physical strength he had to keep the promise he made to her that stormy night.
He promised he would wait until she was older.
He promised her two years.
But now… time’s up.
Namoriee wants nothing to do with him but he has no plans on stopping until she’s in his bed, and he’s in her heart.
She will be his. Forever.
Whether she likes it or not.

 

“Tyronian w-w-what are you doing here?”

Tyronian almost smiled at the stutter, a sure sign that she was unnerved, if it wasn’t the fact that she was about to get ready to sleep here—alone—instead of with him in their hut.

“Funny,” he said, closing the door behind him. “I was just going to ask you the same. Care to enlighten me?” He looked down at her when he came to a stop in front of her. Namoriee licked her lips nervously, an action that made his cock twitch to life.

The things he could make her do with those lips…

“I-I was j-just…” Her breath faltered out of her when he pulled her closer to him. His nose nuzzling the top of her head and breathing in the scent of her.

“You were just…what?” he prompted, enjoying how his proximity affected her.

“Aggod is sick so I j-j-just thought that I’d—”

“You just thought that you would avoid me by hiding out here, instead of coming to bed with your husband?”

Her silence told him that he was right.

“You can’t escape me, Namoriee. No matter how hard you try. If you run, I’ll catch you. If you hide, I’ll find you.” His hands traveled down the length of her, relishing in the tremble he felt at his touch.

She gave the slightest moan at the sensation, so quiet, he wouldn’t have heard it if he didn’t have his lips against her throat. Her skin tasted salty, and sweet.

It was addicting.

He gripped her hips, pulling her close enough that she could feel the bulge in his pants. His body’s natural response to her presence.

“Yo

u’ll find that the man I was with you before is gone. He would have let you try and avoid him, and not done anything about it. He was a man who wanted someone bad enough that he was willing to wait for her to grow up…that man is dead.”

“D-d-dead?” Her voice was positively breathy. He nipped the juncture of her neck and shoulder.

“Dead.”

“What man am I looking at now, then?” Shivering when his tongue apologized for the nip against her caramel flesh. He pulled back and smiled—but it wasn’t a smile.

It was primitive, possessive, and completely venereal.

“One that has been starving for two winters, which is a lot of time to figure out exactly what he’ll do once he has the woman he’s wanted. And believe me, she’ll get just as much pleasure out of the experience as he will.”

Nicole René is a San Diego native living with her grumpy kitty, Sebastian and her crazy cute Boxer, Walter.
When she’s not busy creating sexy alpha males, you can most likely find her with her nose stuck in a book reading OTHER sexy alpha males, kicking back with her friends and family, at the movies, or further fueling her “The Little Mermaid” and “The Lord of the Rings” obsession.
She is a certified klutz, often tripping over invisible objects, dropping things like they were hot, and playing ping-pong with the walls. She has lots of tattoos, loves to eat sushi—but hates eating cooked fish, hates going to the beach (even though she’s surrounded by them), and is still waiting for her Hogwarts letter to come in the mail.

HE was the chief’s cousin…
Namoriee knew the only way to protect herself against the blond-haired gentle giant was to stay away. The way her heart pounded and her insides fluttered when he was near could only lead to disaster.
Two years ago he made a promise to her that she never thought he intended to keep.
She was wrong.
SHE was the handmaiden…
Tyronian wanted Namoriee even when he knew he couldn’t have her. The need to possess her was so deep, it took every ounce of mental and physical strength he had to keep the promise he made to her that stormy night.
He promised he would wait until she was older.
He promised her two years.
But now… time’s up.
Namoriee wants nothing to do with him but he has no plans on stopping until she’s in his bed, and he’s in her heart.
She will be his. Forever.
Whether she likes it or not.

 

Namoriee turned, finished with her surveil of their room and was startled to see Tyronian looking at her with a hunger in his eyes that was starting to become familiar to her.

“Want to know the best part of this?” he asked, voice like gravel.

“W-what’s that?” she stuttered, taking a tiny step back when he started to prowl toward her, reminding her of the cat he had just a few days ago defeated.

Except this time, she was the prey.

“We’re completely alone, which means I can make you scream with pleasure as loud as I want, and no one will hear you.”

Namoriee’s breath faltered. “And if I r-refused?”

His grin was sensually dark, eyes gleaming with her challenge. “Backing out of your promise already?” he tsked. “I’m disappointed. But you can refuse if you want…it won’t change the outcome.”

He was directly in front of her now, so close their chests touched with each ragged breath they took. She could feel the wetness pooling from her core, and her body felt hot. She flinched when he cupped her breasts, flicking his thumb across her hardened nipples.

She sighed, a tingle traveling up her spine as he rained wet kisses up her neck until his lips enveloped her ear, biting the lobe with just the right amount of sting.

“You can try and be quiet,” he whispered.

“Hold in your moans while I take you— it will only make me go harder. Faster. Deeper, until you’re screaming for me. I’ll have you yelling my name until your throat is sore. I want to make you cry, beg for me to stop because you can’t handle anymore pleasure, just so I can make you come all the harder.”
