Excerpt from In 9 Days:
When Kevin pulled away, Tessa gazed into his blue eyes. “I love you, Kevin.”
He gave his characteristic lopsided grin and caressed her cheek. “You can’t possibly.”
“I do,” Tessa insisted.
Kevin kissed her again, this time teasing her with his tongue. Tess moaned, never having felt such an intense sexual attraction before. She tentatively licked the outline of his lips and felt him tense. She moved from the left to the right corner of his mouth, running her tongue over the scar tissue. It was smooth with an almost metallic taste to it. Tessa darted her tongue into his open mouth. He groaned again, much louder this time. She felt her insides contract as a tingling sensation took over. “Oh, Kevin,” she breathed into his mouth.
“Tesse,” he said gruffly.
Kevin repeated her name and moved his lips to her ear, whispering, “I love you.”
