Enjoy a sneak peek at SEDUCING THE WOLF by Maureen Smith Coming Spring 2013
Manning Wolf slid from the rumpled bed and crept soundlessly across the shadowy hotel room to reach the chair over which he’d slung his clothes the night before. Guided by the sliver of daylight that seeped through the heavy drapes, he began getting dressed—a task made easier by the way he’d methodically layered his clothing on the back of the chair. Boxers on top, followed by his undershirt, socks, pants, broadcloth shirt. He always waited until his lovers fell asleep before he got up, gathered his strewn garments and arranged them on the chair so he could make a clean getaway in the morning. As he quietly shrugged into his Armani suit jacket and slipped on his shoes, a shadow of cynicism curved his mouth. Just when had he become the proverbial love ’em and leave ’em type? When had he become a shallow playboy who could bed a different woman nearly every week without feeling more than a pang of guilt? Once upon a time, he’d dreamed of having the kind of relationship that his parents had. A deep, passionate, unshakable love that could weather any and every storm. He’d expected—hoped—to find that same blissful perfection with the woman of his dreams. A woman who could complete his sentences, and could set him on fire with just one look. A woman who rode his mind whenever they were apart. A woman he loved unconditionally and couldn’t live without. But somewhere along the way he’d lost his sense of optimism. Lost his will to believe or hope. Somewhere along the way he’d lost his soul. Because he hadn’t found her . The One. Shaking off the gloomy musings—which reeked of self pity—Manning stuffed his silk tie into the pocket of his suit jacket and turned to regard the shadowy outline of the woman lying beneath the white covers. She was sleeping soundly with the sheets twisted around her nude body, exposing one shapely thigh. Her tousled dark hair spilled over her face, concealing her features in a way that seemed oddly symbolic given that Manning would probably forget what she looked like by the end of the day. Grimacing at the thought, Manning crossed to the bathroom to splash cold water onto his face and rinse his mouth with the hotel’s complimentary mouthwash. When he emerged, he was relieved to see that his lover hadn’t stirred. He’d worn her out last night, making her come so many times she’d been delirious by the time they were done. So it’d probably be a few more hours before she woke up. Manning lingered for a moment, eyeing the cherry bedside table. Leaving his business card would give her the impression that he wanted to see her again. Leaving money—even for a cab—would make her feel like a cheap prostitute. Neither was the message he wanted to send. So he left the table empty and headed for the door, making a mental note to have his secretary send flowers with a note from him thanking her for a good time. At
