“Done?” He touched his lips to her ear, stealing the smallest taste of her flesh. Her tender skin tasted of schnapps and cool malt, both decadent and sweet.
He barely had time to register the word when her head snapped hard to the right, slamming into his nose. Stars spiraled across his vision, dizzying pain dousing the savage need clawing inside his skin. Her palms struck down, breaking his hold and she twisted, her hand closing over his erection, fisting it tight as they landed against the rooftop.
“Now, who are you again?” she asked, the whisper of her words tantalizing him. He could smell the hint of coffee on her breath. For some strange reason, he was glad she’d at least gotten a swallow of the drink she worshipped. He fought the urge of his hips to buck into her grip. She needed only twist and he would be racked with masculine agony.
Despite the inherent danger, he couldn’t ignore the blue-violent eyes searching his or the sweet, voluptuous lips hovering deliciously near his face. The corona of sunlight turned her blue-black hair into liquid velvet. Her body pressed into his, a tender, feather-soft weight composed of sensuous lines, lovingly curved.
A damn near perfect fit to his larger, broader frame.
Her fist tightened, reminding him of the precarious position of his manhood, but his cock merely flexed, enjoying the attention.
“I’m waiting.” Her voice was low.
So am I.
He didn’t know who was more startled when his hands came up to her hair and yanked that sexy, little mouth to his. He brought up his knees, clamping her hips and locking her to his body. Her lips were soft, softer than he imagined. He slanted his head, inhaling her breath.
He expected a protest, but a tiny slip of her tongue against the hard line of his mouth had him opening fully, meeting her tongue with a strike of his own. He sampled her sweetness, the faintly bitter Arabica, the teasing suggestion of minty toothpaste and just a dash of cinnamon from the sticky buns he’d scented on any number of corners throughout the city.
Her fingers tightened on his cock, spiking pleasure not pain as she stroked him through the trousers. The rooftop faded under the enticement of her lips. He released her mouth for a breath and saw the confusion clouding her eyes, but greedy for another taste of her mouth he refused to answer it. He tugged her hair, pulling her back to him. She stiffened, her upper body arching as her mouth turned into a silent O.
