Wild Irish, Book One
Monday’s child is fair of face…
After the death of her mother years prior, Keira Collins became a surrogate parent to her six younger brothers and sisters, her own dreams put on hold. At twenty-seven, she’s finally pursuing a college degree. Between classes, working at the family pub and still tending to siblings, she’s no time for romance. So why is she spending all her rare free time fantasizing about hot Professor Wallace bending her over his desk?
Will Wallace recognizes Keira’s unfulfilled desires, her habit of hiding her beauty, her obsessive need to command every aspect of her life. But Will has needs of his own—and they run far darker than Keira’s. As he initiates her into his lifestyle, offering sweet punishments and sweeter rewards, Will’s sexual authority slowly strips away some of her precious control. The one thing Keira’s not ready to relinquish…
“One of the reasons why I dropped by tonight was to check out this special place of yours. Pat’s Irish Pub seems like the perfect place to write. Named for your father?”
She nodded. “Yes. Originally, way before I was born, my father only owned this half of the building and the place was just a bar. Then the restaurant next door went out of business and Pop decided to expand.”
“I’m assuming the restaurant is through those doors?” he asked, pointing to the left.
“Yes. First thing Pop did when he took over the entire building was cut that opening in the wall,” she said. “It’s actually a rather large building. This half of the bottom floor is the pub side. People can come in here to have a drink while they wait for their table or just to hang out and watch the game on TV. The restaurant is technically called Pat’s Irish Restaurant, but my mom was the original cook and the locals started calling this Pat’s Pub and the restaurant Sunday’s Side.”
“Sunday?” he asked.
“My mom’s name.”
“I like that.”
“She used to complain about it, but I think deep down, she liked it too. Anyway, the name Sunday’s Side stuck. It’s not on the sign, but that’s what everyone around here calls it.”
“And your family lives…?”
“I have to admit I’m impressed by the size of the place. I didn’t picture such a grandiose old building. I imagine the location doesn’t hurt you either.”
“Not at all. We have lots of regulars, but we aren’t so far off the waterfront that we don’t pull in a decent crowd of tourists as well.”
He leaned back and placed his arm along the back of the booth behind her. “Your brother is very protective of you.”
She glanced toward the bar and watched Tristan glower at her. She laughed lightly as she turned to face Will. “Yes, he is. Actually, all of my brothers are.”
“Ah yes, as I recall, you have several.”
“Four, to be exact.”
Will nodded. “I wonder how your four brothers would react if I leaned over and kissed you right now.”
Keira literally felt her heart skip a beat at his comment. Her tongue darted out to moisten her lips, a tiny part of her daring him. “Perhaps you should be more worried about my reaction to a kiss.”
Where had that flirty comment come from?
He smiled and leaned closer. “I know how you’ll react.”
She mimicked his movement, inching toward him until she could feel the breath that accompanied his words. He was going to kiss her. Holy crap, he was going to kiss her. “You do?”
“Mmm-hmm. You’re going to go off like a firecracker on the Fourth of July.” His lips were so close she could’ve sworn she felt them brush against hers as he spoke.
“Has anyone ever told you you’re arrogant?” she asked.
“Has anyone ever told you you’re beautiful?”
