Kate turned to answer Dix. ‘Hmm?’

‘Those memos? And did you want to get some lunch?’

Lunch? Hell no. Him, naked? Yes.

‘Oh sure. They’re upstairs.’ They started toward the elevator and he kept his distance. ‘Do you want to meet me in the restaurant? I’ll be right back down.’ He might want to keep his professional hat on until the evening. In her hormone laden rush to get him alone, she’d totally forgotten to think about that.

‘No.’ He guided her into the elevator with a hand at her elbow. Totally professional, and yet…

They were silent in the hall as they walked to her room. She slid her keycard into the slot, opening the door and turned to tell him these oh-so-professional things when he closed the door, locked it and used his body to press hers against the wall.


No words came. He made a sound in the back of his throat and before she could breathe, his lips were on hers. Hot. Insistent. Urgent like he couldn’t have waited another single moment before he kissed her.

So very wrong. It was so dirty, so bad, so wrong and she couldn’t remember if anything had felt better than his hands on her. One hand cupped her throat as he plundered her mouth, the other nimbly unbuttoned her blouse and pinched her nipple through the fabric of her camisole and bra.

Heat swallowed her, washed away all common sense and she gave in. Reaching between them, she shoved off the suit jacket and foregoing the shirt, headed straight for his belt and the button and zipper of his pants.
