Excerpt: Jessica settled into one side of the banquette seating in the nook and watched him. He filled the kettle, turned on the burner and set the kettle on it, and got mugs down from a cupboard, his movements spare and economical. Jessica found herself wondering if his lovemaking was equally efficient, or if he let himself explore when it came to matters of the flesh.
Stop it, she told herself. She was having tea, and going home. She would not fantasize about this man whose jeans and chambray shirt clung to him. He had a broad back, a great ass, powerful legs. What would it be like to wrap herself around that body, to score that back with her nails as he plunged into her?
He turned as if he'd heard her. Yes, his eyes were blue, very blue. They held her motionless as crossed to her without a word, took her hand, and pulled her to her feet. His other hand smoothed the hair back from her face, once, twice, his touch soft against her skin.
"Oh," breathed Jessica. He brushed his thumb across her mouth, and liquid heat pooled between her legs.
