This is a work of fiction. All characters, events, and places are of the author's imagination and not to be confused with fact. Any resemblance to living persons or events is merely coincidence.

The mantle clock struck nine thirty by the time Jules had finished the explanation of the simple agreement. As he’d moved from clause to clause, he had stroked her back and her neck. His hand moved along her thigh with light caresses.

“I’ll talk to Tony on Sunday before I sign. Sure hope I can hire a part-time baker and a decorator before then.” She covered a yawn with her hand.

Jules stood and stretched. He leaned down. “You’ve made me a half happy man.”

“Just half.”

His breath heated her nape. “I want you.”

Heat blossomed and spread. She nearly purred. Yearning threatened to burn away every bit of good sense. She wanted to feel more.

The dark days of her life before arriving at the group home gathered like heavy storm clouds. She had never known her father. He could have been any of the men who had shared her mother’s bed, sometimes for a night and other times longer. Alcohol, pot, sex and cigarettes were the aromas of her childhood. Slurred speech curses, screams and punches the sounds. These had invaded her hiding place in the closet where she had hidden and prayed for escape. An overdose had given her one.

The group home for girls had given her a semblance of a normal home life. The boy’s home across the fence had allowed her to imagine she had brothers.

Jules had lived there. He’d been labeled a “bad boy” but others had been worse. Had he changed from the image he’d pretended to be? She relaxed into his touch. Back then, a look of loneliness had made her decide he was different than he showed the world. He still played the ‘bad boy. Could he ever admit who he was deep inside?

“You should go if you’re coming back for me at eight.”

His hands slid from her shoulders to her waist. His tongue flicked her neck sending delightful shivers along her spine. Her skin felt seared. A new and exciting fire burned deep in her belly.

“Would make better sense for me to stay.”

Low husky tones vibrated in her ear causing a flutter in her chest. Was she ready to be with a man when her knowledge of his character was based on a crush and a crude proposition? She steeled herself to pull free and found she couldn’t move.

As if he’d read her thoughts he snuggled her closer. She liked being in his arms. She felt secure and yet uncertain. She’d already taken a leap into the unknown by agreeing to sign the contract. Could she take another?

Her breasts felt too large for her bra. The nipples tightened. Jules slid a hand across her sweater and rested his fingers beneath a breast. His other hand slid over her belly with light strokes. She held in a groan.

On Sunday she was scheduled for a tasting at Lauren’s and Tony’s. There was no longer a need for a meet and greet. If she and Jules continued would they be able to pretend to being just acquaintances? She wanted and yet not wanted to give into the urges storming her thoughts and her body.

Jules continued his stealthy exploration. “Can I stay?”

His question blew hazy thoughts away. The reason he wanted to stay pressed against her back. “Why?” Would he be as honest about his desire as he’d been years before?

“I want you.”

“I can tell.”

He turned her to face him. “If I stay I won’t have to explain why I’m rising before the sun.”

She swallowed. She was in trouble, especially when he flashed that dimpled grin. “Are you just being practical?”

He tugged her closer. “Not a bit. I’d like to finish what I made a mess of years ago.”

“As in screw?”

“I want to watch your face and see your eyes as you peak. We’ll make love.”

“Don’t you mean have sex?”

He stared into her eyes. “That too.”

Grace shook her head. “You won’t force me today any more than you would have years ago. I don’t want to be another link on your chain of women.”

His face flushed. Grace bent her head. His reaction pleased her. Then he growled and the rich deep vibrations rolled through her with a force greater than the magic fingers she often used.

He drew a deep breath. “Maybe I mean what I said. Back then I was on the edge of falling in love with you.” He released her. “I can’t believe I admitted that.”

Grace stared into his eyes. His confusion mirrored hers. Did he also wonder what might have been? Could she take a chance? She touched her lips to his and wondered if this was the right move and the right man.

He claimed her mouth with an eagerness that rocked her with the force of an earthquake.
