Her Claim by Rebecca Grace Allen
Series: Legally Bound #2
Publisher: Rebecca Grace Allen Enterprises
Release Date (Print & Ebook): April 23, 2018
She’s no princess. He’s no prince. Then again, they never wanted a fairy tale.
Legally Bound, Book 2
Cassie Allbright takes no prisoners. A half Cuban ball-busting attorney, she’s too tough to admit what she wants in bed. But tough is the only way to cut it in her high-powered firm, and Cassie doesn’t need a knight in shining armor. And she definitely doesn’t need Patrick Dunham—an arrogant, chauvinistic man-whore with a knack for pissing her off.
Bound to the helm of his family’s publishing house, Patrick is shackled to a life of power and wealth he never wanted. Seduction is his only distraction—his nights of pleasure always temporary, because happily-ever-afters are not for him. But while luring a woman into his bed has always come easy, the high-and-mighty Cassie has never succumbed to his charms.
Their verbal sparring turns to foreplay, but instead of scratching an itch, it only whets their appetites. Patrick gives Cassie a taste of what she’s secretly craved, and Cassie’s dark desires stir up things Patrick never knew he wanted. Enchanted, he offers to fulfill her most dangerous fantasies. She agrees, with an iron-clad escape clause: her heart is off-limits, and so is his.
Funny thing about hearts, though. They have a way of ignoring the fine print.
Warning: This book isn’t for the faint of heart. Disclosure includes angry, vying-for-control hate sex and one steamy weekend in Miami. Ready? Break the caution tape and proceed.

He kissed her again, kicking off his pants and shoes, and she wrapped her legs around him. He walked them toward his bedroom, and the world went sideways as Patrick laid her down on his bed. He bracketed her body with his palms and kissed down her neck, her collarbone, between her breasts. His beard scratched over her belly, and once again she was lifting her hips toward him as he kissed her inner thigh, then bit lightly. Cassie jolted off the bed, whining in protest when he avoided her clit and repeated the action on her other leg.
“Poor little princess,” he said underneath the heated press of his mouth. “Dishes out an order, then can’t live with the consequences.”
He moved down to her feet, and everything slowed as he undid the bow on her left ankle. She watched in awe as he took that shoe off, stroked a finger over her bare heel and then undid the bow on the other. He handled her with such delicate care, she couldn’t believe he’d shoved her against a wall moments before. He seemed to be taking her in as he did it too. Studying her.
He made her feel beautiful.
She’d fallen into that trap before—seeing infatuation where there was only lust, dropping her guard for guys who were too weak to handle her and jumped ship at the first sign of her inclement seas. How many other women had felt this way after making it into the elusive Patrick Dunham’s bed, only to be shown the door after?
“Is this part of your game?”
Patrick jerked his head up, his brow lined with concern. “What do you mean?”
I mean I don’t know how to trust you. Or anyone.
But mostly you.
“Making me feel wanted. Are you still just showing me how you seduce?”
He crawled up her body and hovered over her. His nose to her nose. His forehead touching hers, chest hair scraping lightly over her nipples, arms thick and ropy on either side of her. His body was a prison holding hers captive, but she’d never felt so safe.
“This isn’t seduction anymore. This is you and me, two people who’ve wanted each other for a long time. Let me prove it to you, now.”
