♥ Caught in the Act – Excerpt ♥
Liam slowly opened his eyes, his hands still holding tight to Katie. He
didn’t want to let her go, not until he saw the look in her eyes.“Katie?”She slipped out of his grasp, rolling over until her back lay flat
against the blanket. But she didn’t move to cover herself. Her cheeks were
flushed as she stared up at him. But this time, it wasn’t the look of a
wide-eyed, innocent girl opening up her heart. The woman looking up at him knew
what she wanted. She’d gone after it, demanding that he abandon the slow and
gentle path.He sat back on his heels, studying her, when all he wanted to do was wrap
his arms around her and never let go. Shit, maybe this time he was the one with
the love-struck look.“You all right?” he asked.Slowly pushing up on her elbows, she grinned at him. “What do you think?”Before he could answer, she slid off the bed, heading for the attached
bath, her every movement smooth and self-assured. “Don’t answer that. If you
don’t know the answer, I think you should try again after dinner. I’ll shower
while you work your magic in the kitchen.”He chuckled, allowing her words to push against the tension. He was ready
and willing to try again. He would spend all night learning what she liked, how
she’d changed. After all, this was just foreplay …
Minutes later, after he’d pulled on his spare pair of jeans—choosing to
skip the shirt and shoes—and retrieved his phone from his bag, Liam headed for
the kitchen. He needed to shoot Marvin a quick text and let him know about his
boat. He also had to arrange for alternate transportation, but he figured that
could wait until morning.
Locating a cutting board, he removed the tofu from the fridge, opened it
up, and dumped it on the plastic surface. He stared at it. When he’d grabbed
the package at the store, he’d assumed he could toss it on the grill alongside
his steak. But it looked like a bar of wet, crumbling soap. He didn’t have the
first clue what to do with it.
Down the hall, he heard the shower turn off. His mind abandoned the tofu,
choosing instead to picture Katie reaching for a towel and running it over her
naked body. He wanted to join her, dry her off, and toss her back on the bed. Forget
dinner. He needed a second chance to prove the explosive connection between
them ran too deep to walk away from—in and out of the bedroom.
She’d blown him away when she’d said those three little words: Don’t hold back. Her fire and her passion matched his, stroke for stroke. But they couldn’t spend the night in
bed. He needed to feed her, care for her, and show her that he wasn’t here just
He withdrew a knife from the block resting on the island and began
slicing the tofu. He’d picked up wooden skewers to grill the vegetables. Adding
squares of tofu—if it didn’t crumble to pieces first—might work.
He finished with the soaplike substance and moved on to the vegetables. As
he impaled the peppers and mushrooms on the wooden sticks, his thoughts shifted
back to Katie. He’d given her every reason to keep her emotions under lock and
key. He should have known she wouldn’t turn to him, her expression filled with
young love. She’d grown and changed. And hell, he liked the woman she’d become
more and more. But he’d hoped for some sign that she felt the same pull he did.
Liam gathered the food and headed for the door
leading to the grill. “I sure as hell hope she likes tofu.”
