He took a step toward her, as if he had to prove he wasn’t that kind of man. That he wasn’t the kind of man who disposed of women as easily as disposing a paper coffee cup. Her gaze never left his, her soft brown eyes wide as he came close. He could smell her perfume on the wind, hear the flutter of her breath as he neared.
He reached for her, sweeping his hand through her hair before resting it on her neck and leaning in. Her lips parted in anticipation and he knew she wouldn’t stop him.
His mouth landed on hers, gently tasting the sweet recess of her mouth. She leaned against him, one hand on his chest and he could hear her inhale. Their lips touched, softly, as they kissed each other for the first time. She yielded to him easily, her mouth only slightly parted. He dipped his tongue inside, sweeping the length of her bottom lip.
Graeme didn’t linger there. He released her as quickly as he had taken hold of her, his hand still resting on her neck as he gazed down at her.
“There,” he said, his voice barely audible. “I can’t tell you how long I’ve waited to do that.”
He flashed his best winning smile. He could see the pulse beating quickly in her delicate throat. His thumb swept over it, paused on the wild flutter against his skin. So…his kiss had affected her too.
