The Rake's Wicked Proposal(95)

By: Carole Mortimer

Grace flung her head back, her eyes glowing with happiness, her expression one of joyful triumph. ‘It is beautiful, Lucian. Truly, truly beautiful.’ Her voice caught emotionally. ‘We are one, my love. There is no you. There is no me. There is only us!’

Lucian’s arms tightened about her. ‘Always and for ever, my love!’

‘Always and for ever,’ Grace vowed breathlessly, before Lucian’s mouth once more claimed hers and he began to stroke inside her, slowly and then with ever-increasing urgency, until a fire, a pleasure, was building inside Grace unlike anything she had ever known before.

‘Lucian…?’ She groaned achingly as she felt her release building in intensity.

‘I will join you this time, my love,’ he encouraged heatedly. ‘I promise you I will join you.’

Grace felt the heat of his seed pumping inside her as her own release quivered and shook through the whole of her body, and that release was intensified as Lucian surged fiercely inside her. Their pleasure seemed never-ending.

She would love this man always and for ever, Grace silently vowed minutes, hours later, as her head fell weakly against Lucian’s shoulder. And she had no doubt that Lucian would love her in the same way.

Always and for ever.

From now on there would be only joy in Lucian’s life. The joy of their deep and abiding love for each other.
