The bond between them was still there, drawing him closer. It had kept him going through the misery of their break-up and beyond. It had kept him wondering about her and it had made him find a way back into her life.
He had to act on it.
Placing a hand on either side of her face, he lowered his lips to hers and kissed her. As soon as he touched her, he knew it was the real reason he'd sought her out again. They had unfinished business. This was the kiss that had haunted his dreams for so many years.
Her body responded to him and she melted in his embrace. It was as it should be. They'd always been so good together. Parting her lips with his tongue, he tasted her all over again, exploring the woman she'd become. He needed more of her. He needed her closeness, her warmth, her softness.
Not daring to let go of her, he kissed her over to the door and pushed her up against it. God, she felt good.
He moved his mouth to her throat, tearing low whimpers from her and making her writhe.
"Oh, Harlan," she gasped. "Don't stop."
Never. He'd never wanted anyone more.
