Sexy Saturday: At Last

Sexy Saturday: May 13, 2017

The first of the Fitzpatricks is, I believe, one of my most romantic books. I really loved Aeden and Wendy’s story and I can’t wait to share the rest of the Fitzpatricks with readers.



He wanted to kiss her. It was the one and only thought he had. He should be concentrating on the fact that his sister was having a baby, and not the urge to grab
Wendy and kiss the breath out of her.


He blinked. “What?”

“You had that look on your face.”

“What look?”

“The one that tells me you are up to something naughty.”

“And would that be so bad?”

She narrowed her eyes and crossed her arms beneath her breasts. “Kissing? No. I like kissing you. Kissing you in the hallway at work? Yes.”

“Why is that?”

She sighed. “You know why. Plus, I work here. I just don’t do those kinds of things at work.”

“Okay, fair enough. Doesn’t mean I can’t think about it.”

She chuckled. “That’s true.”

“Does that mean you’re thinking about it too?”

She cocked her head to the side and studied him. “Are you flirting with me, Mr. Fitzpatrick?”

The way her voice rolled over his name made his head spin. She’d never flirted with him. He had watched her through the years turn men to mush. Just a smile or a comment had them melting into a puddle at her feet.

“I might be.”

Her lips curved as she reached out for his arm. “Come on.”

She led him down another hallway and then opened the door to a closet. She peeked in, then pulled him in with her. Shutting the door with the kick of her foot, she leaned closer and kissed him. The excitement of stealing away for a kiss wasn’t something that usually got him going…not for many years anyway. But this was somehow thrilling. As she slid her hands up his arms to behind his neck, she opened her mouth and he stole inside.

It was sweet, wet…and everything else faded away. He didn’t even pay attention to where they were, let alone the reason he was there in the hospital. All he cared about at this moment was this woman. She pressed closer and he groaned, slanting his mouth over hers and diving deeper into her mouth. He could feel her nipples through their layers of clothing.

Yes, now. He wanted her now. Aeden slid his hands down her back to her ass and cupped it, wanting to pull her up against his erection. A loud clatter in the hallway outside the door broke the spell they had been held captive in.

Regretfully, he pulled back, but not before he took one last taste.

Wendy’s eyes fluttered open. Her lips were swollen, and there was no mistaking that she looked like she had just been kissed.

“Wow, well, that escalated quickly,” she said.
