Warm. Mobile. Lush.
The thoughts ricocheted through his mind. She tasted amazing. When her lips opened he let his tongue surge in, mating with hers. Genie groaned, and he swallowed the sound, grateful when her arms reached up around his neck as he slipped his own around her waist.
More and closer his body yearned as she bowed her body against his. His mind blanked as her satin covered chest rested against him. The blood pounded through his body, and his erection demanded satisfaction.
He pulled away. Too much. Too fast. Their connection, if he could call it that, demanded so much more. “We have to stop.” His voice sounded hoarse, even to his own dazed mind. He glanced at her, and the flush on her chest and cheeks, the heavy eyes also spoke of her desire. It filled him with a mixture of both hope and regret.
The memory of the concern he had read in Martine and Gordon’s eyes played at the edges of his consciousness. He tried to brush it aside, but it remained there, like an irritating stone in a shoe, rubbing and abrading at his nerves.
Genie feels jealousy toward Karin, the woman marrying the love of her life. Until a man with cat-green eyes saves her from falling. Now, the falling includes love. But his past could be the biggest barrier of all. Can they overcome it all? Only time will tell.
