Before Jody Carter and her three best friends ever set foot aboard the luxury cruise ship, Jody falls into the arms of uber hunky celebrity guest Taggart Keith, when he saves her shoe from falling to the depths of the sea. Their attraction is undeniable, but the recently divorced single mom knows the last thing she needs is to complicate her life in just seven short days. But that’s exactly what happens when Jody takes a chance — for once in her life— and gives into a week of sensational pleasure. Taggart helps her discover her more sensual side — one tantalizing night at a time.
“I do,” she said, tipping her head up. Her lips met his, soft, warm, and welcoming, she tasted him. A hint of amaretto, of the frosty concoction they’d been drinking lingered on their tongues. Her heart beat wildly as she slowly wrapped her arms around his neck, a stretch for her. She trailed her hands along his neck where his coarse short hairs prickled under her fingertips and turned her on. So very male. She opened her lips to welcome his kiss.
He paused and she opened her eyes, looking at him, her arms still locked around his neck. “That wasn’t so bad was it?” he asked, nibbling at her lips.
“No,” she murmured, surrendering to her need for more, “it was very nice.”
“Nice,” he said with a playful tug on her bottom lip, making her cave at his caress.
“Very nice,” she mumbled as he slowly traced her lips with his tongue, his hands strong and protective around her as they roamed further down her back.
She kissed him back more deeply, her hands trailing over his shoulders. His muscled flexing under her touch making her aware of his arousal against her body. “I don’t want you running off again,” he said, his hot lips sliding along her jaw and the tender crook of her mouth.
“I’ll try not to,” she said, not wanting him to stop. “Let’s just go slow, okay?”
“Slow,” he repeated as his lips kissed hers, his fingers running casually up her arm, her eyes meeting his, her body begging her for more. She was silent and held his gaze as his hands slowly trailed along the sensitive crease inside her elbow. Her lips were dry and she wet them as his eyes stayed locked on hers.
Lost in his deep blue eyes as his hands trailed up to her shoulders, along her collarbone, then down her décolleté, her pussy ached. His fingers trailed down between her breasts, igniting the fire within her as he brushed the rounds of her bosom with his fingertips. He teased her nipples, cupping her breasts through her shirt, while his other hand explored her curves.
His cock was hard against her thigh as she kneaded his broad back with her hands, loving the feel of his strong muscles flexing as he kissed her deeply. She murmured softly and pressed back against him, needing to feel more. Grasping his buttocks and pulling him harder to her, she felt his rock hard arousal through his trousers. She’d give anything to be out of her clothes and naked under him, to yield to him, to lose herself in him.
As if reading her mind, he tugged gently at her shirt, sliding one hand inside the fabric and up into her bra cup. She wriggled against him, his touch sending thrills of desire through her as he thumbed her nipple inside the crush of the bra. He moved the fabric of her shirt over her breasts, making her moan. Her lips were on his neck and chest, her fingers pulling at his shirt buttons, wanting to feel, to taste his naked flesh.
She handled the shirt buttons quickly and opened it to feel his muscled pecs under her touch as he bent down to kiss the tops of her round breasts. Oh, that felt so good. He thumbed her erect nibs as she bit into his neck to stifle her groan. Her pussy quivered. He rubbed her tawny buds, cupping her breasts in his hands as his lips found hers again.
“Need to slow down,” she gasped between kisses. Then the only sound in the moonlit terrace was their heavy breathing.
Taggart gazed at her, his eyes flickered with hunger. Damn, she wanted him so much but she needed to slow this all down.
She eyed the glistening water of the pool and his eyes followed hers. Perfect. Just what she needed, cool refreshing water, anything to stop this scorching fire inside her.
“Think that will do the trick?” he asked, grinning at her, the set of his jaw and his partly exposed chest making her quiver with the thought of what might happen if she gave in to her feelings.
“Uh.” She looked at the pool and back at him. “Sure, worth a try,” she said and quickly whipped her shirt over her head and shimmied out of her capris. He just stared at her as if in disbelief as she ran to the edge of the pool in just her bra and panties.
