Read a Sexy Excerpt
“Tory?” Rick asked groggily from the doorway. ‘“What are you doing, querida?”
She hadn’t heard him open the door. “Just finishing up,” she replied, setting down the hairbrush.
“Come back to bed...”
She gazed at his image in the mirror. His eyes heavy-lidded with sleep, his dark hair mussed, she knew the lonesome puppy look wasn’t real. No, he was a full-blooded man. He was capable of more than she’d ever given him credit for, and she had played with fire too often with him.
Before she could reply, he’d stepped forward to wrap his arms about her body, one hand resting beneath her breasts, with the other placed all too close to her soft mound of femininity. Even though the bathrobe was thick, she knew it was hardly an obstacle for his competent hands. “Mmm,” he said, and the hair near her neck shifted. “You smell good.” He nibbled her ear in a playful fashion. “You taste good too. Por Dios, Tory, I want you again.”
What he did to her was wonderful. “You haven’t stopped wanting me,” she murmured as she felt the hard proof of his arousal against her buttocks through the fabric between them.
“I know. I must have you or I’ll die.”
She giggled. “Rick, that’s not likely,” she protested against his lips as with a gentle hand on her jaw, he turned her head to kiss her.
“I know. But, this time it will be different. You, my little vixen, will be in control.”
When his lips raced down her throat to her beating pulse, she managed, “What...I don’t understand.”
His gaze briefly held hers before he possessed her lips again. “You will,” he whispered.
Soon, she came to realize what he meant. Suddenly he released the sash of the bathrobe she wore, and it billowed around her feet. He eased her down upon the tiles. She moaned when he cupped her breasts in turn, grazed his thumbs over them. Then he squeezed one gently. A free hand swept between her thighs, as if testing her response.
He groaned. “Always so wet for me, gorgeous.”
Just when she expected him to take her, he didn’t. He held her close, rolling with her until she lay astride him. Moving inside her, he used his hands on her hips to guide her further. He wore no condom this time. Her eyes flew to his face, but his lids were lowered. He appeared to be in another world, waiting for her to take the reins.
Uncertain, she figured she may as well try. She moved to take him deeper and sighed at the wonder of it. Soon, her body became more urgent, eager for release. Vicky rode him rhythmically, arching her back for the intense pleasure. Thinking he was lost to her, she knew she couldn’t be more wrong when his fingernails dug into the flesh of her hips.
His lids lifted and that dark gaze caused her to shiver, the shockwave shifting somewhere inside. Rick reached between their bodies to stroke her and she moaned, threw her head back as she moved. It was wild, animalistic, unpredictable. Everything she thought she wasn’t. And yet, he gave her this gift, to feel more than the Victoria she’d always considered herself to be. With his offer of such treasure, she felt powerful.
