"Come here, beauty," he says. "You need to be kissed."

I go to the sofa and sprawl on top of him with a sigh. He feels so damn good. He has a gorgeous body--he's all lean, tensile strength with a solid chest that makes me want to stretch against him like a cat in the sun. He puts his hand on the back of my neck and brings my mouth down to his.

He's right. I need to be kissed, and he's the one who needs to kiss me.

His lips are warm and firm against mine, and shivers race over my skin as his hands slide down to grasp my hips. I part my lips on a sigh and let our tongues tangle together. He closes his teeth gently on my lower lip, eliciting a delicious little twinge that shortens my breath.

I wiggle around, rubbing my breasts against his chest. He tightens his grip on my hips before moving his hands into the waistband of my pants. With a smooth stroke, he delves inside and spreads his palms over my bottom. An ache pools through my lower body.

"I think..." I lift myself to look down at him, my blood heating at the sight of the lust brewing in his eyes. "I think I need to be more than kissed.'

"Yes, you do."
