HPBT: Bishop’s Angel by Tory Richards

 

Bishop’s Angel by Tory Richards
Description:
After ten years of sacrificing everything for his country as a Navy SEAL, Bishop is looking for salvation, and something more permanent in his life, something good. Angel, a pretty kindergarten teacher, thinks she’s just what he needs. Their chemistry is instant, and explosive, only Bishop has trouble letting go of his commitment to his country. It’s up to Angel to prove there’s room for her in his life.

 

 

Excerpt:

“The police are on the way, ma’am.

Where is the intruder now?” the operator asked.
Angel listened for a moment. “He’s
still in the kitchen.”
“Is the intruder male?”
“No, no!” Angel said, and then quickly lowered
her voice when she realized she’d spoken too loud. “I don’t know if it’s a
woman or a man.” She’d been too afraid to look when she had the chance.
Movement coming from the kitchen told her the intruder was still there, but for
how long? She was crouched at the end of the couch, too afraid to turn around,
frightened that at any moment she would be discovered. “Please hurry!”
“They’re on their way. Stay calm and—”
“I think he’s in the room with me!”
Angel’s eyes rounded with fear when she sensed
someone moving up behind her.
“Ma’am stay on—”
Angel knew the intruder was behind her now. She stood up, whipped around,
and slammed her phone into the side of his head with a piercing scream. All she
could make out was a tall, dark outline.
“What the fuck—” a male voice boomed.
Angel let out another scream and
slammed her hands against a massive chest, shoving him away from her as hard as
she could. Her only thought was making it back upstairs to the safety of her
room until the police arrived, but the second her palms landed on the man’s
rock-hard chest she knew she was in trouble. He stumbled back but she had a
feeling it was due more to her catching him by surprise than the force of her
push.
She scooted around him but suddenly his
hands were on her and for a moment they
struggled against each other. Angel was
hyped up on adrenaline and a strong sense of survival, and she used her nails
and teeth on the naked arms and powerful hands trying to subdue her. It gained
her enough freedom to make it to the stairs but halfway up she found her ankle
being grabbed, she fell, and then she was pinned beneath a heavy weight.
“No!” she cried out, struggling wildly
against him. But she was no match for his superior
strength and the honed muscles she felt
beneath her hands. In no time his hands had wrapped around her wrists, and she
was pinned against the stairs.
“Who the hell are you?” he demanded,
his face too close to hers.
“Who the hell are you?” Angel demanded right back, twisting beneath him. It was
then she felt cool air in places that she shouldn’t, reminding her that all she
had on was a thin nightshirt and a pair of bikini panties. Judging by the super
hard pecks she felt pressed against her breasts; her shirt had come undone,
too. An insane thought crossed her mind, why
wasn’t he wearing a
shirt? She wiggled wildly, unintentionally scraping her nipples
across his flesh.
“Stop before you get hurt!” he warned.
In an effort to subdue her, he pressed his body against hers.
“Then get off me!” Angel hissed, arching
her body in an effort to dislodge him. His muscled thighs and powerful legs
flexed against hers, easily holding hers still.
“Not until you tell me who you are,” he
grated in a rough voice.
His warm breath slapped her in the
face. “I live here,” Angel said without hesitation, glaring up into his
shadowed face. She was aware there was no way he could see her because it was
too dark.
“The hell you do.”
How did
he know that?
“The police are on
their way so I suggest you let me up and get out of here.” Her energy was
beginning to wane. He was too strong and big, and the longer they remained like
that, the more she began to feel uncomfortable with their intimate proximity.
“Good. Then we can get to the bottom of
this.”
That wasn’t the kind of response an
intruder would make if he were caught in someone
else’s house. Maybe he was delusional
or something. Angel decided to switch tactics.
“These stairs are hurting me,” she said
weakly. Things grew still between them and she sensed his silent contemplation,
as if he were wondering if he should believe her. She whimpered a little for
good measure.
“Okay, I’m going to let you up, but
don’t try anything stupid,” he warned.
The second he released her and lifted
off her body, Angel got to her feet and dashed the rest of the way up the
stairs.
“Son of a bitch!” he cursed behind her.
Angel slammed and locked her bedroom
door in his face. She didn’t know what she hoped to accomplish, except to get
away from him until the police arrived. What was taking them so long? She ran
to one of the windows and opened it. Maybe she could push out a screen and—
Without warning her bedroom door was
kicked in. She screamed and made a beeline for her connecting bathroom.
“Oh, no, you don’t.”
A muscular arm wrapped around Angel’s
waist and she was lifted off her feet. “Let me go!” She wiggled and kicked,
very much aware that her butt was against a very intimate part of his body.
Burning heat replaced the fear flowing through her blood because his cock
wasn’t as flaccid as it should have been.
“Look,” he slammed her down onto the
bed and for the second time she found herself
pinned beneath his superior strength.
“Before this goes any further I think we need to talk.”
“You can talk to the police,” she
panted, twisting beneath him.
“I intend to,” he said without
hesitation. There was a confidence in his tone that surprised her.
Without warning, he reached up and
turned on the reading light at the head of the bed. How did he know that was there? Meeting eyes the color of blue topaz, everything in Angel
froze, including her breath. Oh
God, I know those eyes!
She
didn’t know the man personally, but she
knew of him from the pictures on the
fireplace mantle downstairs. He was Diana’s older brother, and Navy SEAL Bishop Strong. Suddenly everything made
perfect sense.
After six years, he’d finally come
home!
