ELUSIVE by Cynthia P. O'Neill
Contemporary | Erotic Romantic Suspense – Standalone
I, Kaelin Richards, am paying for college by alternative means. Operating under the name Untouched Mystique, I webcast myself getting off.
I blame my bastard father. At nineteen, he gave me three options:
1. Get a degree of his choosing and give him half of my earnings for life
2. Marry his friend’s son and become a subservient wife
3. Get out with only the clothes on my back
You guessed it! I walked. Now my life is simple and low-key…until my roommate, Trent, is attacked, leading me to discover his brother isVan Meyers—the classmate I adore, the new CEO of the company I’m interning for, and the online client that sends my body soaring with pleasure. He’s the only person who has the power to save me from my crazed fan, but can I trust Van to protect me without breaking my heart?
All I want is to be elusive, to live my dreams and not lose my heart in the process.

I know he’d explained why he was drawn to me. We shared so many likes and dislikes that it was almost scary. I mean who has that much in common with another person. Wasn’t the old expression that opposites attract? So why did it feel as if we were one person, merely split in half and finally having found the other half of our missing soul where we could both breathe again? And why couldn’t I just let my guard down and be happy for once?
Staring into Van’s crystal blue eyes felt like diving into the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico. It felt like home, and it scared me. A small smile played on his lips as realization hit him. “Are you like me, angel? When you’re stressed, you need to surrender your anxieties out to the universe with a sexual release.”
I nodded, but then shed a few tears I didn’t think I still had. “It’s been days since I’ve come. I know I’m wound up tighter than a guitar string ready to break, which isn’t allowing me to get there.”
He hastily changed the topic, asking, “Have you washed yet?”
I shook my head wondering where this was going and knowing I looked flummoxed by his question. He moved me off of his lap and stood, offering his hand to assist me. I tried to cover myself, but he grabbed me under the arms, which exposed my body to him as he lifted me to my feet. His tone was soft, yet stern. “I don’t want you to ever cover yourself around me, angel.”
I looked down at the shower floor, not wanting to meet his eyes, but he forced me to look at him anyway. “You’re more beautiful than a Greek goddess.” I blushed while looking anywhere except directly at him. He moved his head around until my eyes finally locked on his. “Besides, I’ve seen you naked countless times over the last nine months. I’ve memorized every inch of your glorious curves. My only regret is that I’ve never felt those curves until now.”
I started to speak, but he shook his head and placed a finger over my lips. “I don’t want you talking, not just yet. I’d like your permission to help you bathe, and in return, you can do the same for me. We’ve already used up a lot of water; it would be shameful to waste anymore, when we could just shower together.”
Van looked quizzically at me. “Is that okay with you?” I nodded in agreement, but feared what it would do to me to feel his hands washing my body.
