Into the Heat Synopsis:A veteran and his first love meet again. Can they help each other heal on the Florida beach? Leo Villeneuve joined the Marines and shipped off to Afghanistan because that’s what the men in his family do. And, if he’s honest, he was running from the family upheaval caused by his teen summer love’s pregnancy scare. Hard to say who was angrier, his father or her mother. He spent months in an earthly hell of heat, dust and battle before being wounded both physically and emotionally. Now the Marine is back on Palmira Island to open a new bakery for his family’s business. But even if his first love is still here, Leo’s not sure she’ll want anything to do with a veteran suffering from PTSD so bad that he walks in his sleep — and possibly worse. If only he could remember the night the local recruiting office burned down … and whether he had anything to do with it. Jessica Clarke was the girl left behind when her young lover was whisked away by his wealthy family. She put her life back together, and helped run her mom’s bed-and-breakfast on Palmira Island. She still loves the inn, but now she must make it a success on her own, and against opposition from her sister, who wants to sell. Still reeling from their mother’s death, Jess discovered her fiancé was cheating on her. And just when Jess thinks her life can’t get any worse, Leo is back on Palmira Island. An older, more manly, more secretive Leo. The flame between them burns brighter than ever, but why does Leo coax her close, only to pull away? And will he still want her when he learns her secret anguish?

With that, she kissed him, and the sensation sent a searing, aching need through Leo. Jessica was what he had waited so long for. He knew that there were reasons he shouldn’t allow himself this pleasure, but it was impossible to control himself around her when she was here kissing him and taking charge.
Her soft mouth molded to his, and she hummed ever so softly. Their lips feathered against each other. The kiss was slow and chaste and erotic all at once, and as his tongue found hers he stroked her face with a gentle hand.
He nibbled on her bottom lip slowly and ran his tongue over its seam then wound both hands into her hair and claimed her more fully, kissing her mouth as if he was drawing their past from her lips. He needed to feel her body next to his. He kissed her with an open mouth, and an appreciative growl came from the back of his throat when he realized that she was not only surrendering to his desire but also matching his urgency.
“A thousand times better than my memories,” he whispered. “You’re still a perfect fit in my arms, though.”
He pulled back to look at her. Jessica’s breath hitched, and her eyes flew open. She said nothing.
“I’ve wanted this for so long. I’ve wanted you for so long,” he said. Looking down, he realized her bathrobe had parted, giving him a glimpse of round breasts and taut nipples. Oh, Christ, the sight of those pink tips made his entire body clench with need.
“Do you want me to touch you?” he whispered.
Nodding, she sank onto the couch then reached for him, tugging at his button-down shirt.
Kneeling at her side, he untied her robe, pushing it clear of her body. She was only wearing a pair of lacy red panties, and he groaned softly when he saw all of her round, full breasts, the soft white of her stomach and the sensual curves at the junction of her thighs.
“You’re sure you want this?” she said suddenly. “After last night...”
“Forget about last night,” he rasped. “I wanted you then and I want you now. You have no idea what I want to do with you.”
“I want to find out.”
