National Award-Winning Author KC Decker, brings readers a
Sexy New, Doctor-Patient Romance.
Ironically, my name is Mercy, though my parents showed me none. If you buy the nonsense they’re selling, you’d think my very birth foretold of an evil prophesy and unleashed a wicked scourge across the land.
While that telling is all very dramatic and compelling, it’s not the whole story. The truth is, I was almost ten years old before the religious cult began to insist I had been kissed by the devil.
Nowadays, how people perceive me is clouded by a different set of convictions and a whole new doctrine. It’s a different batch of Kool-Aid, but I still have no choice about whether to swallow it or not. Not while I’m here and labeled a Ward of the State.
I’ve worn all types of labels over the years—non-believer, pariah, deranged, orphan…it’s all in my file if you care to understand me better. But the label that seems to have implanted the deepest and garnered the most attention is the one I wear like a Scarlet Letter. It precedes me when I enter a room and is whispered about like a schoolyard crush.
The needy effect he has on me is purely anticipatory, but my nipples are already hardening, and the hairs on the back of my neck are standing on end. He unzips the sweatshirt, one tooth at a time, and when the hoody hangs open and free of any attachment to itself, his hand slides up my bare stomach.
The warmth of his palm and the confidence behind his touch will leave a mark on my skin for decades. It compliments his kiss with perfect synchronicity. At this moment. I can see our future together. Long after this institution is behind us, we can have a life together, and I have never wanted anything more. Nothing from my past has prepared me for this. All the want and desire to belong is nothing compared to how badly I want to find my place with Sutton.
When his hand finds my breast and his fingers gently pinch my nipple, I gasp against his lips. The sensation and the boldness, too shocking inside of this tiny moment. But when he slides the sweatshirt off my shoulders and begins to kiss his way down my neck, my thoughts get blurry.
“Touch me, Mercy,” he whispers…
