His Christmas Delight
Excerpt from His Christmas Surprise
She hovered a moment, her eyes going wide in astonishment – the only feature visible in her face which she’d cloaked with a wraparound on the lower and another on the upper part of her face. She sensed his reserve, partly turned away as he was, attempting to give her space. To his surprise, she put the chicken on the counter and then came forward. Towards him. Upto him. Then she reached out slender arms and pulled him down to put her mouth on his.
A shockwave ran through his body. It was a quick kiss, yet not a peck. Her mouth moved as though learning the imprint of his, her body moved a fraction closer. Dan felt her breasts, soft yet firm, press against his chest. His breath caught, blood roared in his veins and he felt the unmistakable distinct flare of desire. Whether it was the forbidden nature of the caress, or the length of time since he’d been this close to a woman, he was caught in the temptation. It shocked him, exhilarated him and suspended him in the moment, as time and space receded. He might have reacted more, he didn’t know. She stepped back and he was left, grappling with the reality.
She picked up the package.
‘Wait!’ He spoke almost too late. She had nearly reached the door. She stopped but didn’t turn back. He could read fear in the tense lines of her body.
