The Emancipation of Emoree by Grey Huffington
I assumed it was the start of nothing.
But, the way that his existence validated my senses, I quickly learned that it was the start of something. From the moment my eyes rested on him, the gravitational pull was inexplicable. It wasn’t that I ever wanted to explain, either.
Not to my mind.
Not to my soul.
Not to my heart.
And, not to my lungs that possibly wondered why I had been deprived of more oxygen since the day he’d walked into my room than I had in my entire life. Because, then I would have to conjure a hell of an excuse as to why I was combating every follicle that summed up my own existence, beliefs and morals. Unfortunately, I had none. Not one. All I knew was that I’d been captured by the husky beast and the eagerness to be saved had failed me.
I wanted to be here.
And nowhere else in the world would suffice.

New Love or old entanglements…
Talented and confident, Morgan-Green’s top attorney is everything that Trenna can do without. Should do without. If only Darrin’s sweet-talk didn’t make her toes curl—or inspire other kinds of sensations too; emotions she never realized she could feel.
As she discovers Darrin’s true character, she becomes more and more enmeshed by his charm, strength, and compassion. But Trenna’s late husband proves to be as much of an obstacle to Trenna’s happily-ever-after as he was when he was alive.
