“Drink or Dare” by Melinda Dozier
from One Lucky Night
“A good laugh and a long sleep are the best cures.” A small chuckle fell out of his succulent lips.
“Then we need to get on with the laughing and later we can sleep together.”
He raised his eyebrows. “I wouldn’t mind us sleeping together.” Underneath his kilt, she felt him harden.
She wiggled on top of his legs and straightened her back. She had to let him know this was not her usual way of doing things. “I don’t just sleep with anyone, you know.”
And like a perfect gentleman, he answered her, “We don’t have to do anything, but get to know one another.”
“You’re not just anyone, Killian. I feel like I do know you.” She rolled her eyes, knowing she sounded absolutely ridiculous.
“Stop.” He narrowed his eyes. “Enough with talking me up.” He pushed her up and stood next to her, placing both hands on her cheeks. “Here’s the thing, Rachel. I really like you. Damn it if I tried to hide those feelings for a long time.”
“Oh.” Again she sounded like an idiot, but she didn’t care, because her bones melted with his words, his touch, his darkened expression. The man tempted her in every way and she wanted him. More than she ever thought possible.
He walked her back to the desk and ran his hands down her arms. “Let’s try this thing out between us. I like how I feel around you.”
She nodded and pulled his shirt so he’d kiss her again, and he did.
He kissed her, deep and slow, his hands firm on her back. She grabbed a tighter hold on his t-shirt and pulled him even closer so that they stood chest-to-chest. He was warm and solid, his biceps around her, hard and firm, revealing a strength she knew more about now that he’d shared his story.
