Title: I Dream of Spiders
Author: Elle Keating
Genre: Contemporary Romance
About I Dream of Spiders:The move to the remote town of Quarry Hill, Pennsylvania was supposed to help Griffin McGuire start over and forget the two people who betrayed him. As a paramedic at the local hospital, he would still have to interact with people, but the rest of the time he could hole himself away in the secluded cabin he was renting. It was perfect. For the first time in over a year, he felt like he could finally breathe. That was until he met her. A woman who doesn’t know her own name or why she was covered in blood and standing in the middle of the road when he found her. Griffin knows he should contact the police, but something is preventing him from going to the authorities. It doesn’t take long for him to realize that he was correct in trusting his instincts. Every time she falls asleep, she dreams and another memory is unlocked. Memories that are horrific and make him want to protect and hide her from the world.

I bring Clare dinner, but she is now asleep on the couch. I lift her in my arms and carry her to bed. I am tempted to crawl in next to her but I don’t. I pull the covers over her and then retire to the couch. Several hours later, screaming erupts from the other room and I rush to her. She is thrashing in bed, clawing at her sheets, her face distorted as she curses at her captors. I slip into bed and try to wake her. Stroking the curve of her cheek with my fingers, I call her name. “Get the fuck off me…you bastard!” she screams. “Clare, wake up!” I yell, cupping her face with both my hands. Her eyes shoot open. Even in the dark room, I can see her blue eyes frantically search mine, for recognition, for confirmation that she is here with me and not in that hell hole she had escaped from. “They won’t stop. The nightmares, they just keep coming.” I pull her to me and position us so that I am lying on my back while she cries onto my bare chest. Her breathing remains stuttered as she sobs. All I can do, all I can offer are a shhh and I got you and you’re safe. “I feel so helpless, so weak. I’m so sorry, Griffin. For coming here, for making you feel like you have to take care of me, for intruding on your life. You don’t deserve this.” I raise her chin with my fingers. “I want you here…and I want to be the one to keep you safe…even if I have to keep you safe from me.” “You would never hurt me,” she whispers. “You are becoming harder and harder to resist, Clare.” She lifts her head off my chest and looks at me. I can feel her nipples pebble through her shirt as they press against me. She feathers her fingers over my abs and I jolt from the sensation. “The other night, I kissed you because I wanted to know if there was someone, some man who remains in my subconscious even if I can’t remember him. But you were all I thought about then, all I’m thinking about now.” I lace her fingers through mine. “You love another.” “If I love Dylan, if I lay with him like this, then why don’t I feel guilty right now? Why do I picture your hands touching me…your lips tasting me?” “Clare, tell me to leave. Right now.” I am hanging on by a thread. In a blink of an eye she rises to her knees and straddles me, trapping me beneath her. “No, Griffin.” She tears off her shirt, exposing her bare breasts. I have seen them before, but fuck are they beautiful in the moonlit room! “You’re not leaving,” she says. I lose it. I forget what is at stake. I forget all the reasons I should say no, and I sit up and kiss her.About the Author: Elle Keating is the author of romance novels with sexy heroes and fierce females.
