Justice For Breeze
Team Cerberus, Book 5
by Melissa Kay Clarke Genre: Romantic Suspense
From the moment Asher "Finch" Finchly laid eyes on a Navy Officer when he was a child, his only thought was to become a SEAL. Every action he took was with the single-minded goal of becoming an elite special forces member. He vowed to let nothing get in his way.
Then one night of revelry changed everything.
Two years into realizing his dream, Finch suddenly found himself as a father. Now, there was someone more important than his dreams or duty. Love for his daughter taught him there was something more to life. He would kill for one of Lolly's beautiful smiles - and then the unthinkable happens--she and her mother disappear without a trace.
Raised in an isolated cult, Breeze knows only her simple life - farming, taking care of children, and paying homage to The Mother Gaia. When one of the members escapes with her daughter, Breeze agrees to go along and help, so she leaves her world behind to face the uncertainty of the Outside. Everything is strange in this unknown world, but nothing is more unusual than the feelings she has for the father of the little girl. He stirs feelings in her she's never known and makes her question everything she stood for. Could her entire life be one big lie?
Finch is happy to have his daughter home, but something is not right. Someone is watching her - waiting for him to let down his guard, determined to take away everything he holds dear. He's in for the fight of his life to get back his daughter and the woman who has stolen his heart. Lolly and Breeze are all that matters. No matter what, he will keep them safe or die trying.
Breeze had heard of kisses. She'd seen kisses. She had even kissed the children on their foreheads before bed before, but this... this was something she was never prepared for.
Finch's lips brushed hers, and she was lost. Utterly and completely lost. His lips were soft, warm, and tender, yet drew fire from her soul that she never knew existed. She gasped in amazement, and his tongue grazed hers in a caress. His hand on her cheek, slid around to the back of her head, cupping it gently, fingers weaving in the silky strands of her hair while the other curled around her waist and held her against him. He was everything in that moment - Fire, Wind, Water, Earth and she rocked in amazement as the kiss intensified slightly, branding her.
She threw her arms around his waist, holding on as he sipped from her lips, taking gentle pulls, tugging at her bottom lip and sucking on it tenderly until she was breathless and her entire body vibrated with a new awareness she'd never experienced before.
When her breath was gone, and her head swam, he slowly pulled back and opened his eyes. They sparkled with a heated need she'd not seen before. Swallowing, she stayed still, surrounded in his arms, enjoying the heat of the moment until he slowly closed his eyes and leaned his head against hers.
"I probably shouldn't have done that," he murmured.
"Emotions are high right now. There's so much going on in both our lives, I don't want you to feel pressured." He opened his eyes and looked at her. "It would kill me to hurt you in any way."
She ran a knuckle over the scruffy expanse of his cheek. "I don't. I feel... I feel something in here," she touched her chest over her heart. "And here," she continued, pressing the palm of her hand against her belly. "But it's not unpleasant at all. I... I like it."
Finch grinned at her. "You do, huh?"
She nodded. "Maybe we can... do it again sometime?"

Melissa was born in Tupelo, Mississippi and raised in Houlka, a small rural town forty-five minutes southwest down the famous Natchez Trace. She found a love of reading very early and quickly devoured everything she could. Told repeatedly that she had a wonderful imagination, she turned to scribbling her musings and wrote her first novel while in college. It was never published and has since vanished. The death of a close friend who aspired to become an author reawakened her own desire resulting in penning her first book, Shattered Dreams, published in 2013.
Melissa now resides in Meridian, Mississippi with her supportive family – husband, Robert and daughter Rebecca, two cats, and two dogs. When she isn't writing, she spends way too much time with her online friends and feeding her ravenous appetite for the written word.
