The Loving Touch
Mirror, mirror, on the wall…
Taylor Hathaway—Mitus Conglomerate’s sweet, timid event planner—has always played it safe. But when forced into the spotlight at a DC fundraiser and auctioned off to a gorgeous stranger from out of town, she makes a bold choice. No strings. No regrets. And very little sleep…
Hospitality Magnate Jagger Loving—sexy, bad boy of Loving Resorts—offers everything from exotic to erotic at his luxurious, couples-only properties. Days before the launch of his first US-based hotel, a sudden setback throws his world into chaos and the grand opening promises to be a colossal flop. In walks his short-term fix…the strikingly beautiful Taylor Hathaway. But he knows her as Raven. And that’s not all he remembers about her.
Thrust together, they can’t deny their powerful attraction. While Jagger is forced to confront past sins to save his empire, Taylor must conquer a lifetime of insecurities to ensure he succeeds. Everything hinges on trust…and the obstacles each must overcome to prove their love is eternal.
Note: THE LOVING TOUCH is a stand-alone erotic romance novella with HEA.
What readers are saying...
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "Stoni Alexander’s amazing Touch series continues with the third (and I hope not final) book in the series, The Loving Touch. We’ve seen some truly hot and steamy alpha males in this series and Jagger Loving is no exception. Love, love, loved this one! Jagger and Taylor have great chemistry together. Such a great book! More please!" ~ Night Owl Reviews *TOP PICK*
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "Ever since Stoni debuted her first book, I have become a fast fan. Her characters are unique and the world she brings you in her stories, well lets say you never want to leave. Jagger kinda makes me a puddle of goo and my brain stops functioning. Let's talk about Taylor. I ADORED her! The message about being you and beautiful in your own skin was what had me rooting for these two. I could not put the book down. The Loving Touch is sexy, thrilling, and unique. You need to get add this book to your TBR's." ~ Crystal's Book World
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "Taylor Hathaway is shy, sweet and totally perfect. I want her to be my friend, and no, not just because she has direct access to the dreamiest empire of men. 😏 (Maybe a little. I’m still chanting, “Colton, Colton, Colton,” from my last Stoni Alexander read.) Taylor and Jagger are opposites in every way. But together, they bring out the best in one another. Le sigh! Unconditional love! The Loving Touch was amazing! A story of transformation and trust." ~ NDP Book Review
Alone with Jagger.
A low rumble ripped from the back of his throat, like a growl.
He’d hid his massive ego well the night they’d met, but here, on a Loving property, he was, without question, the one in control and the one with all the power. He exuded confidence. He oozed sex appeal. And she squirmed under his commanding gaze.
The giant wall clock ticked slowly compared to her speeding heart. Should she confess? Should she apologize for not telling him her real name and for vanishing the next morning?
“I’ll need your phone number.” His words were a command, not a request. “And this time, you’re going to give it to me.” Damn if he didn’t arch his eyebrow at her.
As soon as she did, her phone buzzed.
All thumbs, Taylor fumbled in her handbag, found her phone, and read his text. “Welcome to Loving.”
“Thank you, Mr. Loving,” she murmured.
When he stepped into her personal space, her breath quickened. She wanted to nuzzle the exposed skin in the V of his white dress shirt. Those damned kissable lips would be the death of her. When she peeked up at him, he was waiting.
“Call me Jagger.” His piercing glare cut right through her. “Do you go by Taylor or is there another name you’d prefer I use?”
For a long moment, they stared into each other’s eyes as the unspoken truth danced on the tip of her tongue…
