The Billionaire's Convenient BrideBy: CJ Howard
He discovered a love and passion that he did not know existed, and he learned that the more he let go of himself in her arms, the more he found himself, and the more he realized that there would never be another woman that could make him want her like Emmaline did. He was almost dumbstruck by her beautiful heart and her breathtaking body, and somehow, no matter how much of her flesh he licked and tasted and touched, he continued to want more of her. It was an insatiable hunger between them both that was never appeased.
Mere minutes after he had collapsed in bliss with her in the bed, he was aroused again and she was stunned. “So soon?”
He grinned at her. “I’ve wanted you for so long, and I just can’t get enough of you. I’m never going to have enough of you.” Before they could say anything else, he was inside of her again, and their white hot flames of desire were blazing in and around them as they held each other and wrestled in their lovers tangle.
Emmaline knew that she had chosen the right man and she marveled at the lesson she had learned about seeing people for who they really are rather than who they might be perceived to be. “We better tell Nelson not to work on the divorce papers, then,” she said with a wide smile, and he laughed and kissed her.
“No. We have to stop the divorce right away.” He pulled her into his arms. “I’m never going to let you go.” He kissed her again and held her close to him.
They finally fell asleep together and slept cuddled in each other’s arms, and when dawn broke, they made love again with happy sighs and blissful joy.
Tristan had already gone when they finally emerged from Peter’s bed the next day, and Emmaline silently wished him well and hoped that he would be alright and find some happiness without her.
He sent her a message many weeks later, telling her that he was heartbroken, but he wanted her to be happy and if Peter was what she wanted, then it was Peter that she would have, and they did not speak again. There was never a time in all the years to come in her life with Peter that she ever regretted the choice she had made or second guessed what might have happened had she gone with Tristan.
Their marriage became more real every day as they learned to live together and thrive as one. They worked on the campaign with eager and determined hearts and hands, and when the election finally came, she was at his side and under his arm when he discovered that he had won the election in a landslide. It was an ironic turn of events when the old governor had to shake Peter’s hand and welcome him to the new office.
It felt to Peter as though he had finally come full circle and he could see, far after the fact, that each of the events that had happened had led up to where he had found himself, and, as Governor for the next few years, he always went on record to say that without Emmaline, he would not be nearly the man he was – and he would never change a moment of it.
