Sweat gathered on his brow in a light film. His hands held the edges of his chair in a death grip. He almost stuttered when he asked, “Is there something else you need at this late hour?”

She stopped at the edge of his chair and looked him almost eye to eye. “Just the answer to a question.”

“Okay. Shoot.” Good, great. He’d give her the answer and she’d go.

“Why didn’t you want to kiss me the other night?”

Oh, God. He could swear she almost purred it. Honesty. Honesty was the best policy. She had him so wrapped up, if he lied he’d never remember it anyway. “…” He took a deep breath to steady himself. “It wasn’t that I didn’t want to. I’m just not a one night stand kind of guy.”

She laughed.

She actually laughed at him. Again. When his blood found its way back to his brain, he might be insulted.

“Really.” She grabbed his hands from their hold on the chair. She swung one leg over one side of the seat and did the same with the other so she straddled him.

Of their own accord his arms closed around her. He could feel her heat through the thin shorts she wore.

She wrapped her arms around his neck and pressed herself against him, crotch to crotch, cheek to cheek. Heat sizzled between them. His whole body flared to life as if he’d been held apart from feeling anything, until now.

“Well, what if I’m a one night stand kind of girl?” she murmured in his ear.
