“Good gods,” he growled, then heaved her out of the tub. Water rained off her body, over him, over the floor. Carrying her, he sidestepped them into the shower and turned on the water. Cold to start, it heated to a just tolerable lukewarm. He lowered her feet. She stood, wobbly at first, but steadier after a moment. The good thing about the shower, it hid how loud she was panting. For him.
A rustling of fabric behind her caught her attention, and she didn’t turn to look, because she knew. He’d taken his jeans off. Her imagination went wild. He was magnificent from the waist up—cut stomach, taut chest, broad shoulders, arms so muscular the veins popped. No way the scenery on the bottom half was any less impressive. If she let her eyes confirm the details, she’d be done for. All over him. Any pretense that this was just about removing bad magic would go right down the drain.
Wet denim slapped against the floor. The door slid shut.
Instinctively, Ella felt Zeph’s presence behind her. Looming. Promising to touch.
Her mind resisted what her body wanted. Ella didn’t do this. She was analytical and levelheaded. While she enjoyed adventure, she wasn’t a risk taker and she wasn’t a by-the-seat-of-her-pants kind of woman. These were traits developed through sailing, traits that made her a good sailor. Recent debacle notwithstanding.
“Almost done now, Ella,” he whisered against her neck. His lips skimmed under her ear. The action was just a brush, not a full kiss, but it ignited the blood in her veins just the same. She tilted her head away, exposing her throat to him, inviting more. Fingers stroked her, from jaw to collarbone. “You are so lovely. I could touch you forever.”
She sagged back against him and gasped. He was completely naked. And fully aroused. Oh, my God.
