Dean puts his big, warm hand against my cheek. "I'm taking you out tomorrow night for a special date. Courting you, like you wanted. And afterward, you're coming back here and spending the whole weekend with me. Just us. We're going to watch the sun set over the lake, order room service, take baths together, sit by the fire, and spend a lot of time fucking... fast and slow and good."
"Oh..." An ache of hot longing fills me. "I love you."
"I know." A gleam appears in his eyes, ratcheting my heartbeat up again. "But you're waiting for me this time, Mrs. West."
"I don't want to wait," I breathe, sinking toward him, desperate for the sensation of his mouth on mine, more of his intoxicating kisses that make my head spin and my body throb. "Dean, we've waited for so long... please, kiss me again..."
Lust flares in his eyes again. He grabs the back of my neck and pulls me toward him, crushing his lips to mine with a force that rockets desire through me. With a moan, I sink back against the bed, driving my fingers into his rumpled hair, my own hesitations slipping away like torn silk.
He tightens his grip on my nape and lifts away from me again, his breath hot against my mouth. "Not yet."
