Come Lie With Me, page 22
With a moan she twined her arms around his neck; then she was wrapped around him like a vine. No matter how often he made love to her, it kept getting better and better as her body learned new ways of responding to him. The cool water lapped around them, but it didn’t cool their hot skin. The fires within burned too brightly to be dampened by a little water.
He lifted her out of the water until her breasts were on a level with his mouth; then he feasted on the ripe curves that thrust so beguilingly at him. “I love you,” he groaned, pulling at the ties that held the minuscule bikini bottom on her hips.
“Blake! Not here,” she protested, but her body lay against his in sweet abandon. “Someone will see. Miguel…Alberta…”
“Miguel isn’t here,” he whispered, sliding her down the length of his body. “And no one can see what we’re doing. The glare of the sun on the water takes care of that. Put your legs around my hips,” he directed.
Suddenly she laughed aloud, throwing her head back and lifting her face to the hot Phoenix sun. “You’re still a daredevil,” she crooned, catching her breath as he took her with a long, delicious slide of skin against skin. “You love to take chances.”
She clung to his shoulders, her senses dazzled, drenched in the beauty of the day. He watched her face, watched the wonderful play of emotions in her exotic eyes, watched them grow slumbrous, watching her teeth catch that full, passionate lower lip as she quivered with the desire he was carefully building in her. “Lady,” he chanted. “Woman. You’re all mine, aren’t you?”
She laughed again, drunk with pleasure. She lifted her arms to the sun. “For as long as you want me,” she promised.
“Then you’ll go to your grave as my lady,” he said. “And even that won’t be the end of it.”
