“So what do you do, Ms. Welsh, when you are not working or tending to the lackey of your boss’s business partner?”

I laughed. “I wouldn’t think of you as a lackey, Mr. Locke. By the way, please, call me Ana. Aren’t you one of the officers of Desmond Group? The CIO, correct?”

“Correct. And by all means, call me Jonathan.” He lit his cigarette. “But you didn’t answer my question, Ana.”

“Okay, Jonathan. You know, I’m not sure,” I replied. “It’s been a while since I’ve done much else besides be an executive. May I?” I motioned toward his cigarette.

“Please, forgive me. I assumed that you, like many Americans, did not smoke.” He explained his oversight and removed the pack of cigarettes from his suit pocket again, offering me one.

“No worries. I don’t smoke habitually,” I said, extracting one and allowing him to light it. “So the question is what do I do in my free time?” I confirmed.

“Yes.” He nodded, leveling his gaze at mine.

“Well, once upon a time, when I had free time, there was a bar I liked to go to after work called Basin Street. It’s a jazz club, but sometimes they have other music, too. Anyway, I like the atmosphere of the place.”

“Would it be too forward of me to ask if you would like to go there after this boring thing is finished?”

I could feel myself reddening yet again. Going out with him was not at all appropriate, and maintaining our business relationship was of the utmost importance. Jonathan’s company held a five-year IT service contract with my employer. He would make several more visits to negotiate further proposals and assist with major upgrades. I couldn’t afford any tension to exist between us or worse, for him to expect professional favors of me because of our personal interaction. Not to mention the double standard that exists, governing proper sexual conduct from a woman as opposed to the liberty enjoyed by a man.

These considerations aside, a certain devilishness rose inside me. With his undeniable charm and Guy-Pearce-good-looks, I was a goner. Butterflies fluttered in my stomach at the thought of stepping out with him. Not to mention my part-time boyfriend, Miguel, was on the road again, which left me free to do as I pleased. I’d been lost in these thoughts when I realized I owed him a response.

“Well… it would be too forward,” I said.

“Forgive me, I thought it might be-“

“But,” I interrupted. “I think I’m okay with too forward.” I flashed him a mischievous grin.

“Are you now?” He smiled down at me, moving in a little closer.

“Yes, I think I just might be.”

He leaned down, whispering in my ear, “We must explore this inclination.”

“Yes, I believe we must.” I nodded, grinning.

Spanish Topaz by Regina Carlysle
Excerpt:

spanishtopazCash Carter leaned against the frame of the open barn door and watched Graciela Fuentes barrel down the dirt road leading to the Classic Cash Ranch. She had a new car. A sassy little roadster that reminded him of her, sleek but rounded in all the right places. A rooster tail of dust shot out from behind the vehicle as it rocketed down the road. On either side of the snappy little car, his land stretched out like a rugged Texas jewel in the waning autumn sunlight.

She was home.

Thank god. That was all that mattered.

The weeks since he’d last seen her fell away and his cock hardened behind the well-worn fly of his jeans. Her memory rose up, hot and fluid, in his mind and as his mouth went dry, he swore he could still feel the taste of her nipple on his tongue. It was a rich memory that he’d never been able to shake, even after she left for college and then landed a job as a museum curator in Houston.  They’d been lovers for those years, but time and distance was his enemy. He was damn sick of only having scarce visits to her apartment in Houston and her trips to central Texas were so seldom, he was left aching.

When he’d found the dagger two days ago, she was the only person he’d called. It was a deal that worked for him. He’d have answers and her all at the same time. Have her he would, too. The connection between them had always been electrifying and the month that had passed since he’d last had her hadn’t changed a damn thing about that.

Cash shifted his stance and walked further into the yard to meet her. His heart thumped hard in his chest as he waited and remembered. Lust crawled through his belly and the urge to fuck her sweet pussy seeped through his mind like an oft remembered dream.  If circumstances hadn’t intervened a couple of days ago, he’d pretty much decided to head down to Houston and haul her sexy, Latina ass back where she belonged. For good.

Maybe it was the time of year that made him hard for her. Made him ache for her. The leaves on the trees had turned a smoldering gold that exactly matched her eyes. The simmering reds mingled among the golden leaves reminded him of her lush lips and the way they’d always taken his with a hunger unequaled in his experience.

Bottom line was the woman was so fucking hot she burned him to ash with every touch. She was a craving in his system and he was a happy addict.

When the source of his raging addiction, stopped her car not twenty yards from where he stood, he stiffened, unsure of her greeting, as she stepped from the little car and gave him a look, cocked a winged black brow and sent him a sexy smile. Odd that he noticed that seductive smirk since he could barely drag his gaze from the long length of leg she bared beneath the miniscule black skirt.  A strip of her belly flashed from below her shorter-than-hell red tee. The woman was sex on a stick and his cock pulsed in reaction, grew in dimension and he had the crazy desire to lick her from the tips of her cute little toes to her mouth, stopping to savor every point in between.

“Hey, sweet thing,” he drawled.

Her smile widened as she sent her gaze zipping down then up the length of his body. Impossibly his erection pulsed stronger as the need to fuck her silly grew by immense proportions.

“Hola, querido. Miss me?”

“Every damn day.” Cash held out his arms and watched her go still. A flicker of intensity made her golden eyes go dark.  He smiled, knowing he had her right where he wanted her. She’d missed him, too.  “Come ‘ere, darlin’.. If I don’t touch you right now, I swear I’m gonna die.”

And just like, that the darkness left her eyes and her smile widened as she laughed and raced headlong into his arms.
