CHAPTER 14 TEASER
Without saying a word, Edward fastens a button on his suit jacket with one hand and crosses the room toward me with the long, confident strides I have come to expect from him.
His brooding expression should send me running from the penthouse in fear, but instead, I am bewitched and drift toward him. The air feels charged between us. Electrifying and dangerous.
Immune to the warning bells sounding off in my head, I coax him closer with a slight sway of my hips, as well as a challenging, sly smile that, given his dedicated stare, he clearly wants to abolish from my face in ways that will probably make my toes curl and my ovaries quiver.
Which, based on my track record, I will gladly let him do, of course.
Edward stops devastatingly close to me, his warm, sweet breath caressing my lips as I gaze up at him with merciful eyes and an expression that reveals just how deeply I have fallen for him.
We do not speak. Our passionate stand-off is both tantalizing and tortuous for me.
Then, finally, I cannot take it anymore.
“Edward?” His name slips from my lips like a question, my voice embarrassingly shaky and squeaky.
He advances and I back up until I meet something hard and am forced to stop. The fish tank.
I mentally smack myself upside the head.
So much for my plan not to back up into any walls in his presence…
