From the Author
"I'll walk you back to the spa."
She nodded slowly. We didn't speak the entire way, and all I could think about were her lips and covering them with mine. I'd been thinking about it all night, but I wanted to handle this one differently--right for a change.
Stopping at the entrance, I paused, lightly cupping her cheeks. Her green eyes met mine, and she smiled. In a flash I kissed her, opening her mouth, finding her tongue for the first time. My arms moved to her waist, pulling her closer. Our bodies molded together and a little noise escaped her throat. The sound sent a blaze of desire racing through me, focusing directly below my belt. But I wasn't rushing that. Not this time.
"Goodnight." My words should have parted us, but I held her closer.
Her arms held me tightly as well, and I knew this was different from anything I'd experienced before. All of this was tectonically different.
Forcing myself to let her go, I stepped back. I couldn't look in her eyes or I'd never do what I had to do right now.
"I hope I'll see you tomorrow." An ache was in my throat.
"I'll call you." Her voice was quiet.
I turned away, and my heart, my soul, everything stayed behind as I took the first step and then the second back to the main hotel where I was staying. I'd only made it three feet when I heard her rushing up to me.
"Patrick?" It was a high whisper, and I immediately stopped, turning to face her.
She was gorgeous standing in the moonlight, the dry breeze pushing her silky hair off her shoulders. I wanted to cover those shoulders with kisses, wrap my fingers in that hair. She reached out, and I caught both her hands in mine.
"I don't want you to leave me." She was breathless. "I know this is fast. It seems crazy, but... I want to spend the night in your arms."
Her delicate pink tongue touched her bottom lip, and she didn't have to ask me twice.
