Rogue slid the soft leather slowly from around her bare shoulders, her head rolling to the side. Her hair was wild in the light, falling into the valley of her back and between the peaks of her breasts. She pulled her wonderfully bruised lip between her teeth and bit down, sending an electric shock racing down her spine like a lightning rod, and traced her reflection in the vanity mirror, dark eyes filled with shifting stars and touched her lips, parted slightly in wonder. The barest breath of touch…



She remembered the raw power and hard lines of him beneath the sleek curves of her thighs. Trying to memorize him in the dark… And her heart fluttered in her chest, lashes kissing the warmth rising in her cheeks. The easy smile that played across the corners of her mouth held a spark of eroticism as she imagined it was his hands gently trailing to all the places she’d only prayed for, and remembering all the places they had that she’d never dreamed she’d ever want them to…



“Wait.”



The word stopped her cold.



Cold…



Is that why she’d woken in the woods in nothing but her bare feet, satin pajama shorts and his leather jacket? Had she gotten so drunk off of a few beers she’d jumped him, after jumping off of a balcony and blacked out? And he’d rejected her…



So she’d fled? Humiliated? Heart broken…



Her honey eyes stung with unshed tears and a hot knot formed tight in her throat. She turned and stepped over his beaten jacket and twisted the shower nozzle as hot as she could stand without peeling the paint off the walls. Or her cursed skin. Although…



She let her head fall slack against the slick tile, nose flared, pretending it wasn’t tears she was washing away, but the animal. Even if she was grateful for it’s warmth in the night.



But you didn’t have to love someone to watch over them.



Right?



Maybe love was the curse.
