Excerpt: His Brand of Passion

'Hello, Zoe.'

She turned around slowly, drying her hands. 'This is the ladies' room, you know,' she remarked, and to her credit she sounded as light and wry as ever.

'I know.'

'What are you doing here?'

He took a step towards her, and was gratified to see her eyes widen a little more. She should be afraid of him. Or if not afraid, then at least a little wary. 'What do you think I'm doing here? I want my phone.'

She crossed her arms over her chest. 'Sorry, Bryant. You'll have to wait until the reception is over.'

'I don't think so.'

Her lips parted and he saw something flare in her eyes. Fear? No, it was excitement. He felt it himself, a surprising little pulse of anticipation. She was so not his type, and yet in that moment he knew he was quite looking forward to putting his hand down her dress.

'And how,' she asked, her voice turning husky, 'do you think you're going to get it back?'

'Quite easily.' He took another step towards her, so she was pressed against the sink, her head angled up towards him. She didn't move, didn't even try to escape him. Was she wondering if he'd dare do it? Or did she want him to? As much as he did, perhaps.

His gaze fastened on hers, and something pulsed and blazed between them. Aaron felt it, felt the very air seem to tauten around them, crackle with the sudden, electric energy they had created. Slowly, deliberately, he reached out and slid a few fingers down the bodice of her dress. Her skin was silky and warm, the sides of her breasts brushing his fingers. Zoe gasped aloud. Aaron smiled even as desire arrowed through him. 'Quite a tight fit.'

'Quite,' she managed.

With the tip of his fingers he could just touch his phone, but there was no way he could actually get it. Not without unzipping the dress completely… which was a possibility. Anything felt possible right now.
