This is an excerpt from my current work in progress, Playing Doctor. Gabriel and Beth have agreed to a one night stand...
Dragging his mouth from hers, Gabriel hesitated, measuring her reaction, giving her the opportunity to change her mind, and praying she wouldn’t.
“Are you sure?” He asked, his voice rough with need.
She reached out, pressed her hand to his chest, just over his heart, felt the gallop and pitch of it beneath muscle and bone. For her.
“Thank God. I was ready to beg.” He grazed his fingers along her jaw, humor crinkling the corners of his eyes. “Would you like me to?”
The corners of her mouth, moist from his kiss, curled in a purely feline smile. “Maybe later.”
