,” Stuart whispered against her cheek. “I love you.”
“Then show me,” Anna whispered back.
He needed no further urging. Gently he guided Anna to lie down on her side and stretched out beside her.Holding her close, he kissed her forehead and her cheeks, her eyelids, and the tip of her nose. She shivered whenhe nibbled her earlobe, and her head fell back almost reflexively as his tongue probed the hollow of her neck andtraced her collarbone. His hands moved lower, pressing in slow circles against her breasts, teasing her nipples to become pebble-hard. She strained against him, longing to feel his hands against her bare flesh.Knowing her need, he plucked at the drawstring on her shift until it fell open, freeing her full breasts. Hismouth covered one erect nipple, and his tongue first circled, then sucked the sweetness there before repeating hismovements on the other breast.He eased her shift the rest of the way off, then quickly removed his own
clothing. She didn’t have enough
time to take in all the wonder of his naked body before he lowered it to cover hers. She felt as if every bit of her flesh strained toward every fiber of his body, seeking union.
