As the car she was in pulled into a long driveway, Julia turned her head to look out the window. Sam was driving them to a ranch in the countryside of Southern Oregon. She figured she was about as far away from Boston, Massachusetts as she could get.
Sam said she would be safe here, safe from her father, and Sam’s father. Julia couldn’t believe what a mess her life was in. She was newlywed to Sam, a man in love with another man, and pregnant with Sam’s child.
Arthur and Douglas had both wanted her to agree to have sex with whomever they said, including Arthur. To top it all off, she was so nauseated she just might not make it all the way up the driveway.
Julia wiped a weary hand over her bruised face. Crazy Acres, the damn ranch was called Crazy Acres. It couldn’t have been more perfect if she had tried. This whole situation was crazy.
Four months ago when her father had forced her to marry Sam, she never thought she would be running for her life and that of her unborn child. Julia didn’t think things could get worse, but she had been wrong before.
Sam brought the car to a halt and turned off the ignition before turning to look over at Julia. “You okay, honey?”
Julia nodded, which made her wince. Her head ached, much like the rest of her body. She just wanted to lie down and sleep—for an entire month.
Sam climbed out of the car and came around to help Julia out. Ethane climbed out of the back and grabbed their bags, following them into the house. Sam didn’t knock, just pushed the door open and started on in.
Several of the tallest men she had ever seen in her life jumped to their feet, rushing toward the door. Julia huddled into Sam’s embrace. Her gaze briefly fell on Daniel, standing off to one side watching Sam like a starving man eyeing a banquet.
“Sshh, it’s okay. They won’t hurt you, I promise. These are my friends, and they’re here to help us. Let’s just get you to a room where you can lie down, and I will explain everything to them, okay?” Sam whispered into Julia’s ear, and he led her away.
Julia nodded as she followed. She had reached the bedroom door when a noise across the room suddenly made her look up. Julia’s heart beat faster when she encountered soft green eyes the color of summer grass. Julia had never seen that particular color in someone’s eyes before.
The rest of him went right along with the eyes. Everything about him made Julia’s heart beat faster, her palms sweat. The hair caressing the sides of his face was almost blue black in color. His strong square jaw angled into cheekbones with high elegant ridges. He had a generous mouth, an aquiline nose. Touches of humor showed in the wrinkles near his eyes.
Julia’s gaze slowly swept down his tall, powerful body. He had to be at least six foot five and two hundred eighty-five pounds. Every inch of him was pure lean muscle.
He had wide, strong shoulders that narrowed to an incredible six-pack abdomen wrapped in a white short-sleeved shirt, and lean hips encased in skintight blue jeans. His stance emphasized the force of his thighs and the strength of his legs. He was perfection, and Julia wanted to wrap herself around him.
He seemed to be just as stunned as she was. He looked at her, his eyes staring into hers, eating her up. She started to take a step toward him when Sam caught her hand and pulled her toward the bedroom.
She looked into the room and then back at the man. He gave her a brief, hopeful smile and nodded to her. Julia returned his smile with a small one of her own and let Sam lead her into the bedroom. Hopefully, she would see him again.
Caleb carried Julia, not to the bedroom she had been assigned, but to his own bedroom. He gently lay her on the bed and then went to close the door.
When he came back to the bed, he lay down beside her and drew her back into his arms, cradling her head on his chest, his arms wrapped tightly around her.
“I will bring Robin home to you, Julia,” he whispered into her hair as he listened to her uneven breathing. “I promise, mon bébé.” He grabbed her chin and raised her face up to his. “Do you believe me?” he asked softly.
Julia looked into his moss-colored eyes. Caleb felt like she was looking into his soul, looking to see if he was telling the truth. Did she believe him?
His breath caught in his throat when her small, delicate hands came up to frame his face. She ran her fingers softly over his face, starting with his forehead, down across his eyes, and over his high cheekbones.
Caleb’s entire body trembled when she caressed his lips with her fingers several times before leaning in to replace her fingers with her velvety lips. Her kiss was so soft, just a touch of her lips on his. Caleb let Julia take the kiss where she wanted to, letting her take the lead.
The touch of her lips was a delicious sensation. It was a kiss as tender and light as a summer breeze. It sang through his veins. Raising his mouth from hers, he gazed into her eyes.
“Julia,” he whispered before he moved his mouth over hers, his lips hard and searching, devouring her softness. “I need you,” he whispered against her skin between kisses. When he spoke again, his voice was tender, almost a murmur. “Do you want this, bébé?” he asked, a huskiness lingering in his voice.
“God, yes,” she said in a voice that seem to come from a long way off.
Caleb looked her over, memorizing her figure. “I wish you were mine,” he said in a low voice. His deep longing lay naked in his eyes. Julia felt Caleb’s body shudder against hers.
Caleb’s hands trembled as he unbuttoned her blouse and pushed the edges to the side, his fingers icy but the palms fiery hot. He eased the lacy cup of her bra aside, inhaling deeply when her breasts spilled forth. Beautiful pink nipples topped her lush, full breasts.
Gently, his hands outlined the circle of her breasts, his fingers tracing across her nipples. His touch was light and painfully arousing. Her nipples firmed instantly under his touch.
He pulled her clothes from her body until she lay before him. The shapely beauty of her naked body taunting him until he let out a deep groan.
He leaned down, his lips teasing a taut, dusky nipple before his tongue made a path down her ribs to her stomach. His hands explored the soft lines of her abdomen, her waist, the hollow of her hips.
The stroking of his hands sent pleasure jolts through Julia as his hands moved magically over her body, followed closely by his lips as Caleb whispered his love for each part of her.
Julia writhed beneath Caleb, eager for each touch. “Oh, Caleb,” she moaned as she wrapped her hands in his hair.
"I want to know if you taste as sweet as I think you will," Caleb whispered, his hands pulling her legs apart. He lay between her thighs and lost no time exploring her flesh with his lips, his tongue. Within seconds, Julia was gasping his name, screaming in pleasure, as she came against his mouth.
Julia suddenly sat up, pushing Caleb’s jeans down his hips, his erect cock springing free. He yearned for her touch, yearned to feel her caress his aching length. She didn't disappoint him, wrapping one delicate hand around his cock while their lips locked together once more, the other hand pulling his shirt free.
Caleb moved his hand between Julia’s thighs as he pushed her back down onto her back. His fingers pushed deeply inside her. Julia arched her body, loving the feeling of her nipples rubbing against his chest hair. He kissed her neck, gently nipping her soft skin.
Julia’s hands clenched in his hair as she moaned, "Caleb, oh please, Caleb."
Caleb quickly reached over to his nightstand and grabbed a condom, ripping it open with his teeth before rolling it down his aching cock.
He held her by the hips and gently pushed his swollen cock into her. He filled her up, and she moaned. He locked gazes with her as he pushed in and out of her slowly. Caleb wrapped her legs around his thighs. Julia began to tremble. He pushed harder and faster, almost frantic with his need.
"Caleb," she murmured quietly against his ear. "Caleb, oh God, I'm...gonna..."
"Give it to me, bébé. I want to feel you come around my cock," he groaned against her lips.
Julia panted at each thrust his hard cock made, her hips undulating against him. Caleb pulled at her legs, lifting her higher, impaling her with his throbbing cock while she cried out, her arms tightening around his neck.
Julia’s trembling body arched, and she held onto him as convulsions of pure pleasure racked her body. Squeezing him hard deep inside her, she screamed his name as she came.
