Actress Dani St. Claire crushed Miles Lassiter's heart in pursuit of her film career. Now, she's drowning in her own fame, unable to shake free from an endless blur of parties, drugs and sex, with no end in sight and the one person she needs, is the one she left behind. Her friends in Tinseltown are no help -- everyone wants a piece of her and watching Hollywood's hottest new star fall from the sky is the best entertainment in town.
But if Dani doesn't get help soon, it's not only her career that's threatened but her life.
After the Dani-apocalypse, Miles Lassiter splits L.A. for an exotic Caribbean island to lick his wounds in private at an upscale resort owned his good friend, Lindy Bell. He finds work at a local clinic as an on-call doctor and slowly starts to heal his broken heart.
But, just when he believes he's finally gotten over Dani, Lindy, an acclaimed actress in her own right, asks for a favor.
A big one.
In order to greenlight a movie project near and dear to her heart, Lindy needs Dani on set and cleaned up or the insurance company will bail and financing will disappear. Lindy knows Miles is the only person who can help Dani -- even if helping Dani is the last thing Miles wants to do after she broke his heart. Miles agrees to help but he's not going to make the same mistake twice and swears there's no way he's trusting his heart with Dani ever again. If only sparks didn't fly the minute they set eyes on each other...
Will Miles be able to put aside his pain to save Dani or will the painful memory of their shared past ruin any chance of a future? Find out in Alexx Andria's sensually sweet sequel to the LEVERAGE series in FALLING FROM GRACE.
"Does this feel bad?"
"Depends on your definition of bad." His arms tightened around her drawing her close. He stared down at her, losing himself for just a moment in her gaze. "Jesus, Dani, what are you doing to me?"
"The same thing that you do to me," she admitted in a breathless whisper before sealing her mouth to his for a kiss that electrified every nerve ending and sent her brain scuttling for shelter. His tongue gently met hers in an exploratory journey that was both reluctant and urgent as if he were fighting his own desire and that was just fine with her because she understood his dual tendencies and matched it with her own. "I've missed you, Miles," she said against his mouth, fighting the tears that immediately sprung to her eyes. His grip tightened and a small groan escaped as she felt the hardened ridge of his length pressing against her groin, igniting a small fire inside her belly. Her hand crept into the lazy waves of his hair and caught a grip, drawing him even nearer to her. She wanted to devour him, to make him a part of her so she'd never feel alone again. Their kiss changed in tempo and went from gentle to urgent and Dani lost all sense of reason. She wanted to feel him inside her, to know his touch again, and no amount of good sense was going to intrude on her most ardent desire. But too soon, Miles began to put on the brakes, slowing his sensual attack until finally, they were apart, both breathing heavily and wondering what the next step would be between them. Dani could only hope that he would sweep her up in his arms and make love to her the way he used to but she knew in her heart of hearts that she was hoping for the impossible.
