he night had been full of magic. Mary hadn’t felt so light

17

and carefree in ages. Things had been great with work

18

and for her friends and this wedding felt like the capper

19

on all that wonderful.

20

After the emotion of the music Adrian and Miles had dedi-

21

cated to Gillian and the success of the food, she’d paused just

22

at the large back porch to grab some alone time.

23

The air carried the scent of all the peonies decorating the

24

entire space. Heady and sensual, it made her tip her head back

25

to breathe deep.

26

“Well, lookie here.”

27

She opened her eyes slowly to take in the sight of Damien

S28

walking toward her. A slow, sexy lope, his features intent on

her. It sent a shiver through her because goddamn, he was deli-

02

cious.

03

She smiled. “Hello there.”

04

He kept walking until he was just a breath away. “What are

05

you doing over here all by yourself?”

06

“I snuck in to check on the food. Don’t tell Gillian or she’ll

07

have my ass.”

08

He sucked in a breath that made her hold her own. He was

09

going to say something, she could feel it. Something that would

10

change everything.

11

“Your ass? Hm. Well, I’d rather have it than let anyone else

12

get to it.”

13

A burst of heat fl ashed over her.

14

He got even closer, his hand at her waist. “I’d really like to

15

get up in what you’ve got, Mary Whaley.”

16

She was absolutely sure he’d used that line before. She was,

17

after all, not stupid and she’d seen him on the celebrity news

18

dozens of times.

19

Didn’t matter. It worked. She liked him. And she liked what

20

he said and how he said it. And she wanted to fuck him. Men

21

got to do this stuff, why shouldn’t she?

22

She licked her lips as she thought about it.

23

And then be bent a little and brushed his lips over hers in a

24

surprisingly sweet kiss. A kiss that deepened, hinted at what

25

else he could do with that mouth of his.

26

She was slightly tipsy. Very happy. In a great mood. A hot

27

dude just laid a smooch on her and he wanted to get down. As

28S

it happened, she liked getting down. He wouldn’t want to marry

29N

her the next day so he wouldn’t be underfoot as she got her busi-

ness off the ground. It would be totally about fun and pleasure.

01

No fuss, no muss.

02

Well, maybe some muss would be all right.

03

“All right. Make it worth my while, then.”

04

His grin made her tingle and she knew everything else he

05

had was going to equally please her system. She’d totally have

06

to confess this to Gillian when they returned from the hon-

07

eymoon.

08

“Inside?”

09

Mary jerked her head toward the house. “Follow me.”

10

Like he’d do anything else? He walked behind her, taking in

11

the sway, the pretty heels, the way her rebellious escaped curls

12

brushed the back of her neck. Her neck, where he’d have his lips

13

as soon as he could make it a reality.

14

He wanted her more than he’d wanted something in a long

15

time. “I’m staying here. Just upstairs.”

16

Luckily, most everyone was still outside so it wasn’t so very

17

hard to get up the stairs quickly and into his room, which thank-

18

fully had a lock on the door.

19

She turned and smiled, rooting him to the spot. Moonlight

20

from the nearby window bathed her in silver. Music wafted from

21

the party below. But it was just the two of them in this moment

22

in time.

23

“I don’t even know where to start.” He suddenly felt shy.

24

“Well, let’s see.” She reached up to unpin her hair. It was

25

longer than he’d remembered. “I seem to recall a few things

26

about this sex stuff.” She stepped to him and took his arm, turn-

27

ing the wrist to undo his buttons there, and then the same with

S28

the other.

Then she loosened his tie, tossed it over her head and went

02

back to the buttons on his shirt until she was able to push it off

03

his body.

04

“Now then.”

05

He had to have her mouth right that very moment, so with

06

one hand he cupped the back of her neck and with the other he

07

pulled her against him. Her lips parted on a little gasp of sur-

08

prise and he took advantage of that moment to lick that bottom

09

lip and then slide into the kiss fully.

10

She tasted better than he’d imagined from that brief brush

11

of lips outside. She was cherries and champagne. So fucking

12

delicious and lush he wanted to roll around in her.

13

Mary nipped his bottom lip as her hands slid all over his upper

14

body. Her touch was soft and smooth, even as she lit him up.

15

“Goddamn, baby. I want to lick every single inch of you.”

16

And that wasn’t a lie. At all.

17

She unzipped her dress, letting it fall from her body, and he

18

nearly swallowed his tongue at how perfect she was. Small. She

19

couldn’t have been more than fi ve feet and an inch, maybe two.

20

Curves that made his mouth water. Gorgeous tits and a high,

21

round ass.

22

He shook his head as he took a long look. “Today is clearly

23

my lucky day.”

24

“You’re about to get luckier, so get those clothes off.”

25

He was beginning to get the feeling Mary Whaley was all

26

kinds of dirty up under her pretty dress. “My day keeps getting

27

better.”

28S

He pulled his shirt off the rest of the way and couldn’t deny

29N

how awesome it was that her eyes widened and then went half-

lidded. She took a few steps closer, reaching out to grab the

01

waist of his pants and haul him the last little bit until they were 02

skin to skin.

03

He closed his eyes briefl y, bending to bury his face in that

04

glorious mass of curls.

05

Until she fl icked the button of his pants open and unzipped,

06

pushing the material down, along with his boxers.

07

“Impatient.” Not that he was complaining or anything.

08

“Mmm hmm.”

09

He reached around her body to unhook her bra and trace

10

over the ribbons crisscrossing the top of her panties. “These

11

are . . . It’s like opening a present on my birthday.” But he for-

12

got whatever else he was going to say when he caught sight of

13

them in the mirror. Hooking his fi ngers on the sides of her

14

underpants, he pulled them down and she stepped from them.

15

But his face was level with her pussy and he thought that was

16

a fairly good place to start.

17

She looked down, watching him on his knees. “Like déjà vu.”

18

He pressed kisses from one hip to the other before focusing

19

on her. “How so? ’Cause I’d remember being here before. I’m

20

certainly never going to forget it.”

21

She sucked in a breath as he licked across her belly button.

22

“Earlier. You were sitting. I was s-standing.” Mary lost her train

23

of thought for long moments as he drew his hands up the backs

24

of her legs, stopping to tickle the backs of her knees.

25

“Hmm. I think I found a spot I’ll have to investigate.” He

26

did it again and her legs nearly buckled. “Well now. Yes indeed.

27

After. Or again. Whatever.”

S28

He was beyond her imaginings. His upper body was banded

by fl at, hard muscles. Probably from the brutal workout of drum-

02

ming the way he did. Tattoos covered his skin and she noted one

03

of his nipples was pierced as well. She’d investigate in detail. After.

04

She nearly fell over when he breathed against her labia. Hot.

05

So hot it sent shivers through her as she grabbed his shoulder

06

to keep from dissolving into a puddle on the fl oor.

07

Then he picked her up like she was nothing, turning to place

08

her on the edge of the bed. “This way I can still be on my knees

09

when I eat this pretty, pretty pussy.”

10

Like she’d complain.

11

He turned his head to lick the side of her knee, wrenching a

12

gasp from her lips. Then, just behind, which made her hot and

13

wet, aching. Until that moment she hadn’t even really known it

14

was one of her sweet spots. Not many men paid any attention

15

to that spot, but hot damn, he did. Thank God for it.

16

Kisses up the inside of her thigh. The barest contact against

17

her pussy and then kisses and licks down the inside of her other

18

thigh until he got to the other knee.

19

“Goddamn. You’re easy for some back-of- the- knee action. I

20

like that.”

21

She gulped, enjoying what he was doing to her. Each kiss and

22

lick devastating her a little more and he hadn’t even really made

23

contact with any of her best parts yet.

24

He tossed one of her legs up on his shoulder and sent her a

25

look that would have rendered her jelly if she wasn’t already

26

lying down. Hooo, he knew this sex stuff.

27

“Now then.” He spread her open and sucked in a breath.

28S

“You have one seriously gorgeous cunt.”

29N

She started at the word.

“You don’t like that word?” He drew the tip of his tongue

01

over her clit, teasing.

02

“ I—Oh god. I never really thought about it.”

03

He sucked her clit between his lips several times before back-

04

ing up. “I know it’s got negative history. But it’s not an insult

05

when it’s used properly. This is a
beautiful
cunt. Slick. Dark with 06

desire. Sometimes it’s a pussy. Sometimes it’s a vagina. But when

07

it’s spread open to me like this, when I want to shove my face

08

into you and lick every part? Then it’s a cunt. In the best way.”

09

That made sense. And it did make her tingly when he said it.

10

She nodded and he bent again, this time circling her gate with

11

a fi ngertip while he went back to licking her clit. Slowly. Surely.

12

The pressure just a breath more each moment. She wanted to lay

13

back. Wanted to close her eyes and luxuriate in the way he made

14

her feel. But she couldn’t. Couldn’t tear her eyes from the picture 15

he made there on his knees between her thighs. His hair had

16

fallen forward so she only got a glimpse of his face here and
