JUST ONE TOUCH (SLOW BURN #5) BY MAYA BANKS – FREE EBOOKS DOWNLOAD
#1 USA Today and New York Times bestselling author Maya Banks continues her suspenseful and sizzling Slow Burn series with the fifth book featuring the men and women of Devereaux Security Services.
Raised in a strict religious cult since she was a young girl, Jenna has no connection to the outside world beyond vague flashes of memory that seem to be from another life. Memories she clings to when the cult leaders discover her extraordinary ability to heal—and punish her. Years held captive and forced to do the cult’s bidding have turned Jenna into a meek, timid woman…or so they think. In truth, she is merely biding her time, waiting for the perfect moment to escape.
When a terrified young woman tries to steal the SUV of Devereaux Security’s toughest recruit, Isaac’s anger quickly turns into a strange sort of protectiveness for the beautiful, bruised stranger. But when they are caught in a firestorm of bullets and Isaac is hit, he’s sure the end is near, until Jenna touches him and closes his wounds. As he tries to bring Jenna to safety, she refuses to tell him what danger haunts her or how she healed him, but Isaac vows to do whatever it takes to gain her trust…and her heart. Because with just one touch, Isaac knows he wants Jenna to be his—forever.
A quote from the book: Just One Touch by Maya Banks
JENNA watched in amusement as Isaac gingerly held their three-month-old in his huge hands, which even at her size and weight now completely dwarfed her, and rocked her in the oversized rocker they’d had to specially order to accommodate him. Even as he cooed utter nonsense, it didn’t escape Jenna’s notice how careful he was in his every movement. He was forever terrified that he’d hurt little Evangeline by simply crushing her with his “clumsy, giant hands,” as he referred to them. Jenna merely rolled her eyes and shook her head, which always instantly garnered a wounded, “What?” from her husband.
The man treated his firstborn like she was spun from the most fragile, delicate glass ever manufactured, but his grip was always sure and steady. It was then Jenna reminded him, as she always did, that she was more likely to drop their daughter than he ever was. Of course, in Isaac’s eyes, his wife was perfect, and he took immediate exception to her even thinking such a thing about herself.
He didn’t just keep his opinions regarding his wife and daughter to himself either. He proudly proclaimed that Jenna was the most perfect mother a husband could ever ask for and that Evangeline, or little Evie, as she’d been dubbed by Jenna, though she was often trumped by Isaac, who’d insisted that she should be called Angel, since she’d certainly descended from one, was the most beautiful baby girl who ever lived.
Thankfully, Ari and Beau had been blessed with a little boy, because if not, the arguments between the two proud fathers would have gotten ugly and physical. Now they could both claim to have the cleverest, most intelligent, most beautiful baby of their respective sexes. As for Ari and Jenna, they merely tolerated their husbands’ nonsense by shaking their heads and leaving the room so the men could indulge in all the baby-talk nonsense they liked while the two women could actually have an adult conversation.
