✴ Pre-Order – A Single Kiss ✴
★ Excerpt ~ A Single Kiss ★
She stopped at the door but didn’t turn, which allowed Trent to come up behind her and slide his arms around her waist. She simply stood in his embrace as if waiting for him to realize he’d hugged her by accident. He turned her by the shoulders.
“I like talking to you,” he said, closing his arms around her. He also liked her grass-and-flowers scent, a fragrance bearing a promise of both spring and clean, sweet woman.
“I haven’t held a lady in my arms in forever,” he said, though the sorry truth was he hadn’t wanted to hold a woman in his arms. “I forget how grand and simple a pleasure it can be.”
She dropped her forehead to his shoulder, and he could feel her blushing, though she wasn’t pulling away. She slipped her arms around his waist, and God in heaven, was the fit ever sweet.
“You haven’t been held in a while either, have you?”
She shook her head, and something light and lovely coursed through Trent, part arousal but also hope and warmth and peace. Still, Hannah was female, so he asked the obligatory question.
“Do we need to talk about this, Hannah?”
A big sigh, and she took one step away. “I need to think about it. You’re a lovely man, but I’ve never done an office – an office whatever. I’m not at all sure…I’m just not sure.”
“Fair enough.” He should probably thing too, later. “You need to know one thing, though: I am not after an office fling. If we decide to do something about what I hope is a mutual attraction, then sooner or later, I’ll be looking for a relationship, Hannah. I’m too old, too much a dad, and too old-fashioned to pretend I’m nineteen anymore.”
Trent was looking for a relationship that very instant, which would probably surprise Hannah as much as it surprised him. While he didn’t begrudge her time to think, to consider her preferences and terms, he was also too much a strategist not to give her something to think about.
He closed the distance between them, glad somebody had had the sense to shut the damned door.
