The desire that’d lain coiled, quiet inside her for years roared to life at his touch, at his taste. Heat flushed her skin, her nipples hardened to the point of pain, her clit grew sensitized and each step she walked, the slick flesh around it stroked her, making her nearly pant with need.
He pulled back from their kiss, slowly tugging on her bottom lip with his teeth. A sort of squeak of desperation came from her and he cocked his head.
“You need it bad, don’t you?” His voice, low and growly, caressed her skin, making her arch. He traced the tendon from shoulder to ear with his tongue. “I find I like that very much, Grace.”
“Can you like it while you’re, while we’re, you know, doing it?”
He backed her through the house, looking from side to side until he finally hummed his satisfaction and they entered a room with a bed.
“Doing it? Fucking you? Spreading you out beneath me and sliding my cock deep inside you? Is that what you mean?” He paused as he tossed her on the bed and went to work unbuttoning his shirt and getting rid of his tie.
His upper body was hard and muscled. A nice bit of hair on his chest and a thin arrow leading down into the waistband of his pants. She nearly gulped when she got a load of that flat, masculine stomach. She tried to speak but just shut her mouth when all she managed was a sort of strangled gasp.
His eyes caught her again. “Look at you. What a pretty woman you are, especially when you blush. Show me your body, Grace.”
With shaking hands, she managed to get rid of her suit jacket and unmoored the buttons of her blouse, exposing the silk camisole beneath it.
“Oh very, very sexy. That silk looks almost as good as your skin.” Cade stood before her, gloriously naked, his eyes on her body.
She’d always felt like a boy, her breasts were small, for a wolf she was especially diminutive, just barely five foot two. Most of the time she wore a lab coat, sensible shoes and drab clothing. It wasn’t like working in an emergency room had a whole lot of opportunity for glamour. But the way he looked at her made her feel beautiful in a way she’d never experienced before. She felt totally feminine and very sexy.
“You’re blushing.” He leaned down and caught her foot, easing off one shoe, catching the other foot and doing the same.
“You make me feel shy and wanton all at once.”
“Let’s work on wanton.”
