“Breaking the contact between their lips, she managed an anguished whisper. “Matthew… take me somewhere.”
“No.”
“Yes. I need… I need to be alone with you.”
Panting raggedly, Matthew folded his arms around her, bringing her against his hard chest. She felt the desperate crush of his lips against her scalp.
“I can’t trust myself that far,” he finally said.
“Just to talk. Please. We can’t stay out in the open like this. And if you leave me now I’ll die.”
Even aroused and in turmoil, Matthew couldn’t prevent a smothered laugh at the dramatic statement. “You won’t die.”
“Just to talk,” Daisy repeated, clinging to him. “I won’t… I won’t tempt you.”
“Sweetheart.” He let out a serrated breath. “You tempt me just by being in the same room with me.”
Her throat turned hot, as if she had just swallowed sunlight. Sensing that any more coaxing would push him in the opposite direction, Daisy stayed silent. She pressed against him, letting the silent communication of their bodies melt his resolve.
With a quiet groan, Matthew took her hand and tugged her toward the bachelor’s house. “God help us both if anyone sees.”
