He bent his head, and she felt his breath caress the tender flesh at the back of her neck.
"Thank you, Anna."
A heated shiver coursed across her skin, and her mouth curled into a languid smile.
His lips brushed the outer edge of her ear, and she heard the rhythmic sound of his breathing—a sound that set her heart to racing behind her ribcage.
The wild, frantic emotions that charged through her entire body were so at odds with the tortoise-like pace that life had seemed to take on in the small world of this sailboat.
Even though she was expecting it, wanting it, dying for it, his first kiss came as a complete surprise. The pressure of his lips directly behind her ear had her half-closed eyes opening wide and her breath leaving her in a tiny gasp.
Immediately she closed her eyes and tilted her head, giving him full range of her neck. He didn't disappoint her.
She inhaled slowly, deeply when she felt him take the lobe of her ear between his teeth. Then he pressed his nose into her hair and breathed in its scent, and she found the action highly erotic. He planted his mouth on the back curve of her jaw, the feel of him tasting her skin caused a heat to flush over her entire body—a heat she knew had nothing whatsoever to do with the full, midday October sun that blazed overhead.
