She just didn’t know if she’d survive it.
One thing would help…getting him clothed.
But she couldn’t tear her gaze away from that sheet. Or more precisely, what it hid. Where was a gust of wind when you needed one?
Her fingers itched to explore all that exposed flesh, but she feared it had nothing to do with science. Her body urged her to touch, while the sane, sensible part of her mind seemed to have taken a vacation.
Then she saw the lines of strain, the stiff way he held himself even in sleep. She needed to see his back.
“Merrick, roll over.”
Trina found herself sprawled across the floor with a lion, in all but animal form, half sprawled over her with his face just inches from hers.
She hadn’t even seen him move.
Was it her imagination or were his teeth sharper, his body larger, and his eyes shaded just this side of golden?
She gave a tentative smile, knowing better than to try and escape. “Hello.”
“Are we under attack?” He blinked as if confused, finally recognizing her. His sleepy expression sent her heart thumping hard against her ribcage. The rumpled appearance only made him more attractive, more approachable and more touchable than was good for her.
Especially when she felt the sheet tangled around her feet.
No matter how much she told herself not to do it, it was too late. Her eyes flickered downward.
And such a nice naked backside, too.
It was her turn to blink when she felt his arousal.
“Attack?” It sure felt like it, and she was unarmed.
