When he drew away, she fought off a shudder, forced a
smile to her lips. "Well, now, good morning to you."
"Just shut up a minute." He pulled her back, but this time
simply rested his cheek on top of her head.
She wanted to step back.
This embrace was more
intimate than the kiss,
and just as stirring. Just, she
realized as she relaxed
against him, as irresistible.
