“You should not be so free to challenge a man’s strength and virility.”
Something of the fierce arousal racing through his veins must have shown in his face, because the last remnants of her smile slipped away and she took a step back. The pulse in her throat fluttered. “I…I didn’t.”
He had intended to scare her a little—let her know she had crossed the line. But he could not seem to stop himself from pushing her a bit further.
“You would not want me to prove you wrong.”

The warmth of her body saturated his clothing and the softness of her curves crushed against him, begging for further exploration. The base desire to possess rose darkly within him and he battled to maintain control.
