Her body language told him more than her words as she nervously shifted her weight from one foot to the other. Her gaze darted around the room landing everywhere except on him. It all screamed deception.
“Don’t play games with me, Chantal.” A grin tugged at the corners of his mouth as he imagined her out of her clothes and stretched across his bed. “Unless they start with everyone being hot and naked.”
A crimson flush spread across her cheeks and forehead. Her tautly puckered nipples shoved against the soft fabric of her T-shirt, confirming what he had already noticed–she wasn’t wearing a bra. Had he touched a nerve that caused her embarrassment? Or better yet, had he hit on an interesting way of spending the day that was acceptable to her?
Heated desire spread through his body, and his cock twitched as it came to life. He was more than willing to put his curiosity about what brought her to his island on hold in favor of a far more interesting pursuit. He took a swallow of his beer and carefully studied her while waiting for a response to his blatantly suggestive remark.
He didn’t have to wait long.
A sexy smile slowly spread across her face. “What kind of hot and naked games do you like to play?”
That was all the encouragement he needed. There was no mistaking the twinkle in her blue eyes, a color nearly the same hue as her shorts and T-shirt. Her lipstick matched her fingernail polish, the same shade also decorating her toenails peeking out from her sandals. Her breasts rose and fell with her increased breathing. She had crossed his mind many times over the last ten years. And now fate had brought her to his personal piece of paradise for reasons he didn’t know…at least not yet.
No way would he allow this opportunity to get her into his bed slip through his fingers a second time. He could already taste her and feel his cock buried inside what he suspected was a hot, juicy and tight pussy. When he first met her, she had been a tempting treat. And now…somewhere during the intervening years she had turned into a tantalizing, vibrant woman whose mere presence grabbed his libido and wouldn’t let go.
He walked around the end of the bar and stood next to her. He brushed feathery wisps of her blonde hair from her cheek, then trailed a fingertip down her arm to the back of her hand. The creamy texture of her skin stimulated his senses. “If you’d like to accompany me, I’ll be glad to show you.” Holding out his hand, he tilted his head to the side and shot her a look that was half question and half challenge.
