Abbey has joined Jack in Paris, but he thinks she's still uncertain about their relationship. While she's in the bathroom getting changed, he tells himself he'll have to take thing slowly - until Abbey appears in a more-than-sex red baby-doll outfit.
“You like?” she asked teasingly.
“Like is an understatement.”
He stood up, started towards her, then stopped, letting his gaze travel the whole length of her. “Jeez, Abbey, I don’t know what to say – “
“Then don’t say anything. Just kiss me and take me to bed.”
'Fragrance of Violets' is available from Whiskey Creek Press and Amazon.
