This is what you’ve been looking for.
He knelt before me and I froze, knowing just what he was about to do.
❝Neil, ❞ I pleaded. ❝No. ❞
He remained unspeaking, his eyes trained on mine as he kissed my navel. I clenched my thighs, wet heat pooling low in my belly. I gasped as he reached forward, trailing kisses along my waistline, tears leaking my eyes when I realized that he was kissing my scars.
❝Yes, goddess? ❞
❝My safe word, ❞ I spoke breathlessly. ❝Icarus. ❞
She was the angel that fell from the heavens. Her wings had been clipped and charred, her body marred with scars by her abusive father. On the verge of seeking death’s fatal kiss, Carina desperately needs a miracle to save her from herself.
That miracle was Neil Nolland.
Carina had never met anyone like him. He healed her wounds and kissed away the nightmares until she forgot they existed. He was her remedy, her salvation. Though, with secrets of his own stashed away in a closet stacked high full of horrors too awful to imagine…
He would also turn out to be her doom.
