As you are no doubt aware by now, I'm dedicating this week's blogs to help Lilly Wilde promote her latest release in the Untouched Series, Book Five in the series, in fact, titled Only His Touch: Part 2. Now, if you haven't got around to actually purchasing this sizzling hot new release erotica, fear not because I have the complete and unexpurgated list of purchase links, right here:
How do you protect the one you love from the one who loves you? Touched By Him adds yet another gripping chapter to Aria and Aiden’s tumultuous love story.
Aria Cason’s new life in Belize comes to an abrupt halt when a betrayal forces her to abandon her carefully laid plans. To protect a love she thought she’d never have, Aria makes an impossible decision that places her at the mercy of the man she loves, but desperately wants to hate.
Aiden Raine is determined to bury his love for Aria, but when an unexpected truth is revealed, his world once again collides with hers. As a means to an end, Aiden reluctantly enters a tenuous relationship with the one woman whose betrayal he may never forgive.
Bound by a love they never predicted - Aria and Aiden struggle to coexist in a world that seems too small. They are pulled apart by their need for control yet tormented by a passion they cannot escape.
Betrayal, animosity, love, lust and lies all collide in the third book of The Untouched Series.

“Beautiful. Just as I thought.” He focused on my eyes, casting his hypnotic gaze, but I quickly looked away. I couldn’t let him pull me in to anything beyond sex.
He took a sip of alcohol, his eyes still on mine. “Do you know what your name means?” he asked.
“Of course I know what it means. It’s my name.”
“Touché. So the very beautiful Aria has a lot on her mind. What’s troubling you?” He took another drink.
What was he doing here? Had he followed me? And, damn, did he ever not look hot? He was wearing jeans and a black shirt. The top three buttons were undone. I could see the light dusting of hair on his chiseled chest. He was standing closer than was necessary so I overloaded on his intense scent, taking in a deep breath that nearly caused me to fall from the bar stool.
I regained my composure and went back to pretend mode. “Apparently you can’t take a hint, so I’ll tell you. But I warn you, it’s not nice.”
“Okay. Shoot,” he said.
I sipped my drink and placed it back on the bar. “It’s about this guy. A guy that I had very strong feelings for—you could even say I loved him.”
“Yeah, and unlucky girl,” I said, pointing at myself.
That was strange. He almost appeared sorrowful. Lately our emotional exchanges were consumed with either indignation or desire. This new dynamic was throwing me off. Is that why he’d blurted out he loved me earlier?
“I would imagine that any woman as gorgeous as you would have only the very best of luck with any man. Clearly, this guy is an idiot.”
Was that his attempt to extend an olive branch? Had he forgiven me? Could I forgive him? “From what I can tell, most men are.”
His brow lifted at my comeback, and he smiled.
“But I made a huge mistake in judgment,” I continued, “so I can’t place the blame entirely on him.”
He searched my face. It was as though he were seeing me for the first time. Or perhaps it was that, for the first time in an extremely long while, he was looking at me without anger clouding his view. And I found myself gazing at him with less animosity than I had in weeks. As his smile faded, his eyes softened. My mind wasn’t playing tricks on me; I really didn’t see the rage. I didn’t see the Aiden that once worshipped me, either, but I did see a glimmer of something different peeking from behind his amazing green irises.
