"Come here."
With those two husky words he held her in thrall, and the last of her worries fled. She stepped closer, close enough for him to hook two fingers under her chin. The slight contact grounded her further, his calloused fingertips tracing a trail of awareness across her sensitive skin. He smiled and the approval in his eyes warmed her frozen soul.
"That's my girl. I should paddle your ass for believing the rumors, but first I need to do this."
Anticipation made her toes curl under and she closed her eyes as he drew closer still. Their breaths mingled, and his achingly familiar scent enveloped her. The very essence of him was imprinted in her soul, so unmistakable, even on her best friend's clothes. She tensed recalling that heart stopping recovery, her now ex-friend's laughter ringing in her ears.
"Did you really think you could keep a man like him, little mouse."
Hearing his pet name for her from Sarah's lips had cheapened it, turned it into an insult. How she had stopped herself from clawing the other woman's eyes out she would never know.
The touch of his lips on hers chased the shadows away.
"All mine."

  1. How did Sarah hear his pet word "mouse"? Amazing story.

  2. Great stuff as always Doris! :)

  3. I love her doubt it makes her very human, l don't like her ex friend though! Nice teaser.

  4. I'm a little confused. I don't trust him and I don't think she should either. :(

  5. Sensual and tantalizing as ever, Doris, full of that trademark sensory detail. There's a whole lot of story going on and you wrap the reader right up in it.
