BLURB

 

Bram—

My best friend’s little sister—that’s all Claudia Bliss is to me.

My head keeps trying to convince my heart, but both know it’s a damn lie.

 

It’s her face I see every time I close my eyes.

It’s her lips I long to kiss.

It’s her touch I crave in the dark.

She’s the one I love … but wanting Claudia is wrong.

 

She’s been like a little sister to me since the day she was born. Now, everything between us is changing—including the special bond we’ve always shared. It’s stronger than ever … and becoming something so different. Something so hot. Something so forbidden.

 

My little dove is growing up.

Doesn’t matter how wrong it is, I can’t stop wanting her.

 

I will have her.

 

 

Claudia—

Bram Windsor. I have loved him my entire life.

 

For years, I was nothing more than one of the boys to him. Owen’s little sister. The pest who tagged along everywhere the boys went. But now, everything has changed.

 

I’ve grown up and it’s time Bram sees me for what I am. A woman. A sexual being who wants him. A virgin more than ready to give herself to him.

 

I don’t care what our friends or family say. I love him and everything about being together feels right.

 

I will have him.

EXCERPT

“Duke!” I turn when I hear Claudia squeal my special nickname. One look is all it takes. I no longer have to wonder what Rivers meant.

Claudia’s thick, dark hair is longer. She’s always worn it in braids or slicked back into a ponytail through the hole in the back of her ball cap, but tonight it’s hanging in loose curls. Long, lush eyelashes surround aquamarine magnets—the same eyes I’ve seen no less than a million times, but I can’t stop staring at them. It’s as though I’m seeing them for the first time.

The red top she’s wearing is sexy as fuck––one of those where it comes up and around the neck, leaving her shoulders and back completely exposed. Damn, damn, daaamn. Her perky tits and protruding nipples look like nothing less than perfection pressing against the thin fabric.

It’s possible I’m drooling a little as my eyes scan her mile-long legs from her ankles all the way up to the curvy hips she’s showing off in tight skinny jeans. I swear to God those tits and curves weren’t there the last time I saw her. I would have noticed.

Her shoes piss me off. Fuck-me pumps. She has no business wearing anything like those.

Who is this hot, beautiful woman who has replaced Claudia Laine Bliss?

I was six when she was born; I’ve known this girl all her life and most of mine. Since the time she could walk, she spent her days chasing Owen, Rivers, and me. Always slower. Always weaker. Always so soft, sweet, and delicate. She’d have chosen death over admitting a single one of those facts back in the day. But we didn’t care. She was Owen’s baby sister.

Our little Claud.

That was then and this is now. And our little Claud isn’t so little anymore.

She rushes toward me and leaps into my arms, same as she has for years, with her legs wrapped around me. But this time feels different. My dick immediately recognizes the changes in her, too. The fucker spasms and comes to full attention when her body collides with mine.

The exposed skin on her neck and shoulders calls out to me like a siren. A seductress. A fucking temptress. Touch me, Bram. Kiss me. Lick me. You know you want to.

What. The. Fuck.

No, no, no. Every thought going through my head about her right now is wrong. So many kinds of wrong. This is our little Claud. My best friend’s baby sister. Not some random chick I’ll bang and abandon before morning.

Still wrapped around me, she holds my shoulders and leans away so we’re face to face. So close I could kiss her. “I’ve missed you so much. I’m very upset with you for staying away so long.”

“You know I was taking extra classes so I could graduate early.”

“I know…but you didn’t come back to see me. Not even once.” Her pouty bottom lip protrudes and it reminds me of the face she used to make as a child when she wanted her way. Except this time it’s hot as fuck. I want to suck that lip into my mouth. Maybe even bite it.

“I didn’t do much of anything for the last five months except study. But it was worth every weekend I spent with my head in a book; I’m finished for good.”

She slides down my body and her crotch rubs my cock—no, make that my hardening cock. I will it to stop but it’s a dick. It can’t not respond to the touch of a woman. Especially when that woman is this hot.

Shit, I hope she can’t tell that she made me hard.

Even more so, I hope Owen and Rivers can’t tell that she made me hard. They would kill me.

Literary Awards

Barry Award for Mystery/Crime Novel Of The Decade (2010), Macavity Award for Best First Mystery Novel (2009), Anthony Award for Best First Novel (2009), Glass Key Award (2006), Galaxy British Book Awards for Crime Thriller of the Year (2009)

The original Swedish title of this book is “Men Who Hate Women.” If you ask me, it suits this story much better than catchier but less relevant “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” because it is in fact about men doing all kinds of horrid things to women. So here is the first warning to you, if you don’t handle violence against women and children well, skip this novel. It’s hard to give a short synopsis of the book. “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” starts off as an investigation of a 40-year old disappearance of a teenage heiress, but gradually morphs into a tale of serial murder and corporate trickery spanning several continents and later takes in complicated international financial fraud and the buried evil past of a wealthy Swedish industrial family.

I found this book extremely engaging and full of action and came to regret many times that I had an audio version instead of a regular paper book. I also enjoyed immensely the amount details about everything – the publishing business, twisted Swedish family, corporate crime, history and political order of Sweden, etc. I am guessing if you don’t care to read about any of this subjects, this book is not for you, because it is packed with this information. My only qualm about this book, a small one, was the characterization. The character of Mikael Blomkvist smelled of a male wish fulfillment fantasy, the one where a man is adored by all women, gets laid all the time and always gets lauded for his stellar bedroom skills. Lisbeth Salander also felt a little shaky and I thought Asberger’s decease didn’t quite account for her strange personality. I thought her antisocial behavior was inconsistent. This however didn’t spoil my reading experience.

I am eager to read  “The Girl Who Played with Fire” and see what Mikael and Lisbeth are up to next.
