With his attention diverted, Julia took the opportunity to check out his form. Standing over six feet tall, Nolan had a solidly built body of pure muscle. With broad shoulders and a firm chest, he had the type of physique which had been gained through an inheritance of genes, rather than hours of strenuous exercise.

The lower half of a tattoo peeked out from beneath his T-shirt sleeve, and she could see that the taut bicep of his right arm was adorned in a traditional Polynesian design.

She wondered what the top half of the tattoo looked like, and was also curious if he had any more. Allowing her eyes to focus on his hair, she saw that it was cropped close to his head, and noticed it had a slight wave to it. She then shifted her gaze to the area where his neck met with shoulders, and found herself unabashedly admiring the way the fabric of his T-shirt hinted at the muscled planes of his hard back.

Suddenly aware that somebody was watching her, Julia’s eyes were drawn toward the other side of the store. As her gaze focused on Sia, Julia noticed that the other woman’s eyes were trained upon her.

Sharing a knowing smile, Sia seemed to silently express to Julia that she understood the attraction. Julia could only guess how many women came into the store and were instantly taken by Nolan’s good looks, and she found herself wondering if Sia was his girlfriend.

Filled with embarrassment, Julia returned the shopkeeper’s smile with one of her own, then directed her attention to the jewelry in the display case.

Julia heard Nolan speak a few more sentences in Samoan and then he hung up, turning his attention back to his waiting customer.

“Sorry about that,” he said.

“No problem.”

“So is there a particular piece of jewelry you’re interested in?” She pointed a finger to indicate the pair of earrings she was interested in. “The ones in the shape of a hook.”

After unlocking the display case, he retrieved the jewelry from the piece of velvet they were lying on and placed them on the counter so that Julia could have a closer look at them. Picking up the plastic holder that they were hooked into, Julia held the earrings next to her ear, then picked up a hand mirror so she could get an idea of whether or not the jewelry would look good on her.

“Those will look lovely on you, I can already tell. You should get them.”

“You think so? I also had my eye on the spearhead and fish earrings.”

“Those are nice as well, but I really think these would suit you best. The fish hook brings positive energy and good luck.”

“Nice. It certainly wouldn’t hurt for me to have more good fortune in my life.” Glancing at the wall where the giant fish hook carving hung she asked, “Did the craftsman who made that carving on the wall create the jewelry as well?”

Nolan took a glance behind him at the wood carving which hung on display, then redirected his attention back to her. “Oh, you mean Troy Fatutoa? No, he doesn’t create jewelry. He only does larger carvings.”

“Oh, okay. I just figured since it had the same fish hook design...” Her voice trailed off as she continued to study her reflection in the hand mirror. “Mind if I ask who made these earrings?”

“We have craftspeople in Samoa who create all of the jewelry you see here. They only provide limited amounts of each design, so if you buy from our shop, you’ll know it’s truly unique.”

“They really are one of a kind.” She gazed in the mirror for a few moments, then said, “Okay, I’ve made my decision. I’ll definitely go with these.” She set the earrings on the counter, then reached into her leather messenger bag and pulled out her wallet.

As Nolan called out the total, Julia handed him some bills and waited for her change. After placing the money in the register he retrieved a few coins and tore off the receipt, handing both of them to her with a smile.

As Nolan wrapped her earrings in tissue paper, his eyes shifted to her overgarment, studying it with a look of interest. “That’s a nice jacket. Doesn’t look like it keeps you very warm, though.”

Made out of cream-colored suede, the jacket she wore had faux white fur along the collar, as well as along the edges of the sleeves. Just as Nolan had suggested, she did indeed wear it more for looks, rather than warmth, and found herself a little embarrassed to come out and admit it.

“It was an impulse buy. Guess you could say I purchased it out of pure vanity.” She gave him a little smile then said, “Just one of those things I couldn’t pass up.”

“I’m like that as well. When I see something I like, I have to make it mine.” His eyes sparkled and he gave her a flirtatious smile.

Her lips curved upward in response. “Is that right?”




“So what did you like most about riding a motorcycle?”

“I liked feeling your big, strong body pressed up close against mine.” She ran her palms up and down his nice, firm biceps.

“What else?” Sliding his fingers along her inner thigh, he brought them dangerously close to her heat. Yet before they could make contact, he redirected their path and coasted them back downward.

“I liked the way the bike felt beneath me.”

“What, you mean the engine?”


“You enjoyed the vibration, didn’t you?” His lips tugged into a little smile.

“Yeah, I guess you could say I did.”

“Did it make you horny?”

 She felt her body grow hot as their conversation turned more erotic.

“What do you think?”

“I think it did, and I’m pretty sure you’re still turned on right now.”

“I might be.”

“You definitely are.”

The way he said it caused a shiver of pleasure to dance along her spine, and she became lost in his gaze. Grabbing hold of the zipper on her jacket, Nolan slid it down so that her sweater was exposed. Then he slipped a hand beneath her top, gliding it across the bare flesh of her stomach, then further up toward her breasts.

“I’m pleased to hear that riding a motorcycle has an aphrodisiac effect on you.”

“And why is that?”

“Because it gives me more of an idea about the type of person you are.” His fingers brushed over the thin fabric of her bra, continuing their journey until they made contact with one of her stiffening peaks. “So besides the vibration, what else about it excites you?”

As Nolan tweaked one of her nipples between his index finger and thumb she bit her lip, then released a sigh of arousal. “The speed, the power of the engine. I also liked that you were completely in control. Seeing the way you handled that bike was a major turn-on.”

“Oh yeah?”

“Uh-huh.” She slid her hands up along his shoulders, bringing them to the back of his neck so that the tips of her fingers could stroke his hairline at the nape of his neck. You were so confident, and I found that really sexy. At certain times I did get scared, but I knew you wouldn’t let anything happen to me.”

“It makes me feel good, knowing you trusted me.”

His thumb and index finger continued to fondle her nipple, bringing it to an impossibly hard point. Wrapping her legs around his thighs, Julia coaxed him closer toward her. She withdrew a little sigh as his thumb dipped beneath one of the cups of her bra, pulling the fabric down so that his finger could make slow, tight circles around her peak.

He pressed his crotch against the moist heat between her legs allowing her to feel the sensation of his stiff cock pressing needingly against her denim-clad center.

“Feel how bad I want you right now?” His voice came out in a breathy whisper.

Lost in a lust-filled daze, she nodded, and as he leaned in to capture her lips, she tilted her chin upward. There was a hungry urgency in the way that they kissed, as if they were trying to fill an insatiable desire. Placing her hand against his crotch, she teasingly slid a finger along the outline of his erection. His lips moved more aggressively against her mouth, and he began to lightly pinch and pull her erect bud. Their tongues wrested intensely for a few more moments before they finally pulled back from the kiss.

“I love being with you.” His free hand slipped into her curls, stroking them gently as he gazed into her eyes.

“I love being with you, too.”

Sunshine filtered through the tree branches above, casting a soft glow all around. The area they were in was peaceful and quiet, and since it was tucked away from the main road it gave them all the privacy they needed.

The feel of her legs wrapped around his muscular thighs only intensified her arousal, and each slight movement of his body caused his hard-on to brush against the juncture between her thighs. A strong wind suddenly blew around them, causing the leaves to whisper and sway, and some of them fluttered down from the trees above. The air softly caressed her face and as Nolan’s lips made contact with her neck, Julia tilted her head back and submitted to his ministrations.

Shuddering from the sensation of his mouth and tongue on her, she jutted her breasts forward and released a husky moan. The tip of his tongue left a warm, wet trail against the sensitive flesh of her collarbone, while his left hand went to work at stimulating the spot between her legs. His thumb made side to side motions against her center, moving with a skill which brought her to the peak of passion within just a few short moments. Undoubtedly swollen, her clit throbbed beneath the fabric of her jeans, filling her with a voracious longing that she’d never before experienced.

Removing his mouth from her neck, Nolan sensually moaned into her ear, “I want you.”

They were three simple words—quick and straight to the point, and as their eyes locked together, Julia saw him giving her a carnal stare. No words needed to be spoken on her part, as her excitement was evident in the reaction of her body.

Cupping her hand around his erection, Julia gave it a nice firm squeeze. The groan he emitted sent a sharp tingle through her loins, and the feel of his sizable cock caused the pulse between her legs to become more urgent.
