He scooped her off of the ground and carried her into the house. "Dinner will be delayed an hour," he said to whomever listened without looking away from her eyes.
She looked both frightened and excited as he carried her toward the bedroom. "I'm getting used to being swept away in your arms, I think I like it."
He kissed her breathless before setting her down on the edge of the bed. He wanted her enough to risk his safety to be here. If he had to leave in the middle of the night, he'd at least have the memory of her warm mouth to take with him. He plunged his tongue against hers and thrilled at the moan from her throat. He needed to get her hot and wet.
While kissing her, he untied the strings of her halter-top and pushed it down over her bare breasts. He squeezed each before sliding his mouth over her neck. He wanted to taste every inch of her, have her mindless with ecstasy. His teeth grazed one nipple while his thumbs played havoc with the other.
Her fingers tangled in his hair. Gripping. Pulling. She arched her back as if willing him to devour her breast even more deeply.
He complied, using both his tongue and teeth to torment and please. He raised his head long enough to look at her tits before pulling her dress from her body and tossing it aside. He met her gaze in the moonlight filtering in from the windows.
She rose up on her elbows, blonde hair partially covering her face, and smiled. "Take your clothes off. I want to touch all of you."
He unbuttoned his shirt without breaking eye contact. He liked undressing for her and seeing her lick her lips with desire. The wildness in him matched the daring he recognized in her.
