STORY EXCERPT

 

Suddenly she realized how foolish she had been to come down here alone. She looked nervously up and down the cold, dark street but it was empty. No one seemed to be out at this time of night. Her heart was racing fast and she felt scared. She swiftly checked her shop door, and thankfully it was still locked so no one had broken in at least, but who would do this?

Liz quickly called the police station and Ethan answered. She almost asked for someone else but didn’t want to waste time. Liz reported it to him and he told her he would be right there. Still feeling a little nervous she walked back to her apartment stairs to wait. If she saw any strangers lurking around she could run upstairs to the safety of her apartment. She frowned when she thought about the window. That would be expensive to fix. Her insurance company would not be happy with her, but at least it hadn’t shattered into a million pieces.

It didn’t take long for Ethan to show up but he was alone. Liz stood there in front of her stairs freezing and feeling awkward, wishing another deputy had come instead, like one of the Wilson brothers—Gabe or Logan. She really didn’t want to deal with Ethan tonight or any other night.

Ethan’s mouth tightened when he saw Liz shivering in her skimpy silk pajamas, standing on the sidewalk all alone. He took off his coat and put it around her tightly, wanting to yell at her. Why was Liz standing in the dark? Didn’t she know better than that? If she was his woman he would—he shook his head and put those tempting thoughts out of his head. He had to keep reminding himself they had nothing in common. Besides she was dating that uptight snob, Gary Peters. Stella had told him that.

“Did you see anyone?” Ethan asked her, folding his arms across his chest and trying his best to look intimidating. His mouth was set in a grim, firm line, which wasn’t unusual. Ethan hardly ever smiled. People usually stepped away from him when he got this mean look on his face. Ethan knew people wondered what he did in the military and made up stories about him. The rumors helped his reputation as a dangerous character, so he said nothing to confirm or deny them. Since he didn’t like being sociable it was fine with him.

Liz looked up into his hazel eyes, wishing Ethan would just put his big arms around her. His body would engulf her and make her feel warm and safe. Instead she answered him in a steady voice, hoping he didn’t notice her voice was a little shaky. “I heard a noise then I came downstairs and saw this and called you. Must be bored kids, I guess. My door is still locked so I guess that is good news for me.”

“You should have waited upstairs. What if he came back, Liz? You would have no way to defend yourself, then what?” Ethan said in a hard, firm voice that expected no arguments. He couldn’t understand why he cared so much that she put herself in harm’s way, but the thought of someone hurting her was like a punch to his gut.

That remark got Liz angry and she let him know it. He certainly knew how to put her on the defensive. “Just because I am a woman doesn’t mean I can’t defend myself, Deputy White, so do not presume that you know anything about me.” Liz could have explained that she had taken self-defense lessons for years, but she didn’t like his chauvinistic attitude.

Ethan was tempted to pull Liz in his arms and kiss her until she stopped arguing with him, but instead he gave her his best impatient look that made everybody stay quiet as soon as they saw it. Only it didn’t seem to work with Liz.

Liz stood there and glared back at him as if she wasn’t afraid of him. “What, no comeback? Because you know I am right!” Liz wanted to stick her tongue out at him, too. He was so frustrating.

Ethan felt amusement replacing the anger he had felt at finding her standing on the sidewalk in the cold and dark like a sacrificial lamb. But he didn’t let it show. “You weigh like a hundred pounds, if even that. What could you possibly do to disarm an attacker?” He smirked. “Where is your boyfriend, the banker? Shouldn’t he be here protecting you?”

“It’s none of your business, Deputy White,” she stated firmly. Let Ethan think what he wanted. He wasn’t interested in her anyway, so she wasn’t going to explain anything to him.

“I’ll file a report and tomorrow you can go by the station and pick it up for your insurance company. You’d better get inside. You’re turning blue,” he ordered her like she was a little girl.

Liz pressed her lips together to keep from saying more. She frowned at him instead and handed him his coat. Ethan reached out to grab his coat and on a crazy impulse grabbed her arm instead and pulled her close. Liz wasn’t expecting it so she fell against him. He steadied her by grabbing her waist with his hands. This is crazy, he thought to himself, but he had already made her mad so he might as well taste her lips like he had been dying to do since Halloween.

 

ADULT EXCERPT

 

Ethan pulled her close to him and rubbed his hands up and down her back. Her nightgown was cut low in the back, leaving her skin exposed. He kissed her cheek and neck and nipped her collarbone. Liz shivered and arched her neck, giving him more access. Ethan decided to stay in front of the warmth of the fire, so he threw some pillows on the floor and laid her down. “Want some wine?”

Liz shook her head no. “I just want you.” She put her arms around his neck and pulled him down for a deep, passionate kiss. She opened her mouth to let his tongue in. Ethan ran his hands down her body, exploring her body with his hands and her mouth with his tongue. He quickly took control of the kiss, letting all his desires loose. No more holding back. After a few minutes he lifted his head and looked down at her lying beneath him.

“Liz, you are so beautiful and I’m not talking about just how you look. I have always admired you from afar. Now I wish I had been brave enough to get to know you before,” Ethan whispered, looking into her beautiful eyes with regret.

“It’s never too late, Ethan.” She smiled invitingly. “I’m here now and I am all yours, big boy.”

Ethan chuckled and pulled her straps down, revealing her bare breasts. The soft light of the fire lent a golden glow to her pale skin. He brushed his fingers over her erect nipples, turning them into hard little points. Liz arched her back toward him to tempt him into taking a nipple into his mouth.

Ethan leaned down and nipped the tip lightly with his teeth then licked first one pink nipple then its twin, slowly and softly teasing her. Her breasts were pale white and just enough to fit in his palm. He sucked on her breasts slowly, taking his time to taste and play until her body was writhing in passion while his hands caressed her legs under her gown, moving up toward her thighs and up to her mound. “Oh, Ethan, stop teasing me,” she cried out.

“You naughty girl, you have no panties on,” he teased her with a wide grin, feeling her bare skin. “My kind of woman.”

Liz giggled and ran her hands down his back and under his boxers and squeezed his ass cheeks, making him chuckle. “Definitely my kind of woman.” He lifted the gown off her, leaving her nude, and threw it aside. “Exquisite, that’s what you are.”

“So are you,” Liz whispered, kissing his chest and licking his skin and nipples. “You are so hard yet your skin feels hot and silky. I’ve had plenty of fantasies concerning you, Ethan, and I hope I can explore at least some of them tonight.”

He looked very interested in this and gave her a wolfish smile. “Oh yeah, I like fantasies.”

She told him to lie on the pillows. When he smiled and accommodated her wishes, she pulled his boxers down his legs and his cock sprung free, hard and proud. He was long and thick and so ready. She licked her lips with an eager smile. “Fantasy number one coming up.” Liz straddled his hips and put the base of his shaft in her hand, pumping it up and down, then bent down. Her mouth watered and she licked his tip for a few seconds before she took him into her mouth, swirling her tongue around his cock.

“That feels so good, Liz,” Ethan moaned, putting his hands in her soft, silky hair. The more excited he got he would tighten his hands in her hair and moan louder. She ran her tongue up and down his long length, loving his salty, spicy taste, and sucked him in as much as she could. Ethan was large so she had to open her mouth wide and relax her throat. Liz was enjoying herself. She wanted to please him so she took him as deep as she could.

“I don’t want to come yet, angel. I have fantasies of my own to fulfill,” he told her in a raspy voice, stopping her and pulling out of her mouth. He put her body underneath his and nudged her thighs wide open with his hands feeling her pussy. “You are so wet, aren’t you?”

Liz nodded and whispered. “Only for you, Ethan, and for so long now.”

Ethan found her clit and rubbed the swollen bud with his finger, feeling her body shudder. He inserted one then two fingers inside her, making her moan with pleasure. He replaced his fingers with his mouth. “Mmmm.” The humming sound vibrated through her pussy, making her moan louder. He used his tongue to explore her thoroughly and Liz groaned. “Ethan, that is so amazing but I can’t take much more.”

“Oh, but you will, angel. I’ve had fantasies, too,” Ethan demanded. He reached up and played with her nipples at the same time he licked her folds, pinching them, pulling them and driving her crazy with the stimulations that ran through her body. It was like an electric shock traveling upward through her body, and she couldn’t stop it. She didn’t want it to stop. It was so explosive and intense. It felt like her body would explode with pleasure.

Ethan felt an orgasm explode within her. He took a condom off the coffee table and rolled it on himself, and then he guided his cock into her. He was big so he waited a moment, allowing her body to adjust to his. Ethan groaned. She was so snug. Liz began moving her body up to meet his, letting him know she was ready for more. Liz gripped his shoulders tightly but he knew he wasn’t hurting her. She was just as excited as he was. She ground her hips, keeping up with his pace.

“Look at me, Liz. Let me see those beautiful eyes shining with excitement,” Ethan told her. She looked up at him and into his own piercing eyes that looked into hers. “Does it feel good?”
