I can sleep peacefully now.” He pulled away and arched a brow at her, “And what is my reward?” She giggled, “A smile.... and a kiss.” Her hands slid up to his neck as she reached up to kiss him. “Just one,” she warned. “Just one,” he repeated lowering his head, shortening the trip and capturing her lips. He sighed at the contact, wrapping his arms around her frame and holding her tightly against him. She tasted so good. Like honey full of hope and love. He could only imagine what the rest of her tasted like. At that thought, he pushed his tongue into her mouth deepening the kiss. She moaned, pulling his neck to her. Just one... just one long one... He thought. Christopher’s hand sank to her arse and pushed her up his knee to straddle his thick thigh. He rolled her hips against his thigh releasing a shivered gasp that quickly turned into a heated moan. She lifted her thigh to press against his arousal. Christopher’s member jumped at the contact, sending a fierce heat rushing through him. He lifted his thigh a little higher and pushed her parted thighs to his hip to greaten the contact. She whimpered, rolling her hips again and pressing her thigh harder against him. Christopher felt his control leave him. He wanted her, then and there, damn the consequences! As if to counter his resolve, he felt a wet chill rush down his head and down his back. Melanie screamed, pulling away. Christopher stood, facing the heavy familiar chuckle, “Nicholas!” He hissed, pushing his wet hair back. “Chris, five more seconds and you would have taken her in your grandmother’s studio.” He announced in a whispered laugh. Nicholas then turned to Melanie and took her hand, kissing the back of it. “It’s a pleasure to finally meet you Miss Monroe.” She pushed her wet hair off her face and curtsied, “It’s a pleasure to meet you too Lord Townson. I’ve heard so much about you, and I am relieved it was you, not the Countess who found us.” Christopher turned to her with a betrayed look, “You are glad!” She glanced at him with a familiar chastising look. He’d seen it on many well breed ladies—it annoyed him. “I know what taken means Lord Ashworth.”
