Book: That Night
Author Melissa Alexander
Genre: Contemporary Romance/FBI
Adam Miles is always up for a good time. He’s the guy you call for no-strings-attached fun—not the guy you call for a relationship. Adam doesn’t have time for the white-picket fence dream. He’s too busy tracking down killers and putting them away. Until he met her.
Ellis James doesn’t want a serious relationship. She’s been there, done that, and has the emotional scars to prove it. Ellis is focused on her career and is kicking butt as an FBI agent in Atlanta. When Adam and Ellis first meet she is working undercover, and he has no idea of her real occupation. Misconceptions are formed, but neither can stop thinking about the other. Until her case blows up in her face.
After narrowly surviving a hostage situation, Ellis and Adam come face-to-face when their cases cross paths, and they are thrown together on a task force. Adam is hunting down a serial killer who seems to be involved with a string of bank robberies Ellis is investigating.
Ellis has attracted the attention of a killer who will stop at nothing to have her. As Adam and Ellis spend time together, they feel their attraction growing stronger each day. What should be one night of passion turns into more. As their feelings for each other intensify, one awful mistake will threaten to tear them apart, and put Ellis in harm’s way. Can they overcome their fear of relationships or will they destroy each other?

We move quickly and quietly out of our hotel room, and Carson slips the key card into the slot. The moment he turns the handle, we are in the room. Senator Collins jumps with surprise at his hotel door opening, but surprisingly, James is still.
“Atlanta Police Department, you both are under arrest for solicitation,” Harrison says as he walks over to the Senator. Harrison begins reading the Senator his rights as I walk over to James. She is on her knees, and the sight is erotic. She is even more beautiful up close. Dark brown hair, deep hazel eyes, and a body I could spend all day worshipping. I’ve got to admit I’m a breast and butt man, and she does not lack in either department. Her breasts are pushed up nicely by her bra, and I can make out the outline of her nipples. Her butt is perfection. Just the right amount to grab onto. After hearing her earlier statement about light spanking, I think that would be something worth exploring with her.
I help her up, then pull her arms behind her back and put handcuffs on her. I would give anything for this to be the two of us, and for this to be foreplay. It’s so fucked up because I’m hard as hell from this scenario. I shake my head to clear my dirty thoughts as I begin to mirandize her.
