~~~~~ PG Excerpt ~~~~~
"You'd better try to get some sleep." Adam's voice was uneven, and his chest hurt. So did his surging shaft. But he'd promised to protect her, and he wouldeven from himself.
"What about you?" She patted the edge of the bed. "There's room for both of usand we're both gonna freeze if we don't."
He was pumping off enough heat to melt an igloo!
"I don't think that's a very good idea."
"You don't want to be near me." The hurt look on her face undid all his fierce resolutions. Brenna blinked back tears, and miserably hunched over again. "Why did you drag me all the way out here if you hate me so much?"
"I don't Jesus, Brenna, I don't hate you!" He gaped at her in surprise. "I just don't think it's safe to sleep in the same bed with you!"
Sudden anger sparkled in her eyes. "Well, why not? Mom doesn't care, otherwise she would have stayed. And it's the only way we're going to stay warm all night!"
How could he explain it without hurting her feelings?
"Brenna, you're my" The word stuck in his throat.
"Your what? Problem? Burden?" She glared bitterly at him.
"No. And you're not ugly, either, and you know it, so don't try that tact with me. It hasn't worked since you were six days old!"
"Well, I'm not six days old." She sounded sulky now. "I'm eighteen. And I thought you loved me."
"Oh, baby." He wanted to pull his hair out. "I do love you, more than anything else in the world! Why do you think I brought you along? But you are only eighteen, and I'm thirty-seven, and"
"And what?" She scowled at him through the silky curtain of her hair.
"And it's not proper for me to sleep in the same bed with my eighteen-year old stepdaughter." There, he'd spit the hated word out.
"So you'd rather freeze to death. Fine." Brenna thumped down on the mattress, and turned away from him. "Whatever!"
The teenager's ultimate insult. Adam nearly laughed.
But damn, she looked so incredibly sexy, even snuggled up in his two shirts and a blanket! Because all he could think about was unwrapping her, one enticing layer at a time, to find the sweet tempting treasure buried deep inside!
Was she still a virgin?
She hadn't dated anyone inoh, it had to be months. So maybe, maybe!
God, how he'd love to be the first one to spread her legs and bang her senseless!
