Kelli Maine Week - Excerpt from Taken By Storm

The emotional rollercoaster of the USA TODAY bestselling Give & Take series by Kelli Maine continues with MJ and Maddie's story!


Maddie Simcoe knows the devastation that comes from keeping secrets. Now, she's desperate to move on from the heartbreak that almost destroyed her -- trading wild passion that once made her knees weak for a life of comfortable stability. But before Maddie can start over, she must return home to put the past behind her once and for all...


When Maddie blows back into MJ Rocha's life, nothing will stop him from proving to her that walking away from him was the biggest mistake of her life -- not even the engagement ring she wears. Her every look, every touch tells MJ that the fire that once raged between them still burns hot, and MJ won't give up until Maddie gives in to the inferno.


Trapped by a hurricane roaring through Turtle Tear Island, MJ and Maddie find shelter in each others' arms. While the lightning flashes, MJ and Maddie are helpless to fight bonds of desire that tie them together. But just as they're about to surrender to the torturous longing that consumes them both, the storm unleashes violent secrets from MJ's past...secrets that could wash away all MJ and Maddie's hopes of forever...



She dialed the number.  It rang once before a soft knock sounded at her door.  She hung up knowing who it was.  She could feel his presence on the other side like an invisible band connected them through her center and his.  "Come in," she called.  
the lit candle stub sitting on top of the chest of drawers did little to light the room, but she saw fatigue on his face, and his eyes always got glassy when he was overly tired.  
Without a word, he climbed in bed behind her and wrapped an arm around her waist, snuggling up close.  He buried his nose in her hair, and kissed the back of her neck.  "No matter who you're with, you'll always be mine, Mads." 
She set her phone on the nightstand and laced her fingers with his.  She wouldn't argue.  Couldn't argue.  He was right.  
"We'll get past this," he said.  "I promise." 
Maddie turned her head, leaning it against his.  "That's what my dad said." 
"He's never wrong." MJ rose up on his elbow and gazed into her eyes.  
With anyone else she ended up blinking or looking away after a few seconds, but with MJ, she could spend an entire night looking into the depths of his eyes.  She could see right through them, right inside him.  It was like being plugged in to the universe and knowing the answers to every question you never thought to ask.  
"When we do get past this," he whispered, "and you're mine again, I'm going to make love to you like I never have before." 

And that my friends.... is your introduction to MJ Rocha.
