The moonlight through the window casted ghostly shadows across the room. The soft whirl and clatter of the metallic creatures roaming the house was almost soothing. Gideon closed his eyes for a moment, immersed in the sensation of Emma’s soft, naked body cradled close to him. Despite her betrayal he couldn’t help but be in love with the woman in his arms.
He gazed down at Emma to find her twinkling blue eyes staring back at him sleepily. Her lips curled into a sweet smile. He brushed a stray strand of hair from her face. “You’re beautiful,” he breathed.
In the pale moonlight he could see her cheeks flush pink. Suddenly her smile disappeared. “Gideon, what are we going to do? Katarina has the humidor. She can accuse you of General Hellwig’s murder.”
“Don’t fret,” he assured. “I will think of something.”
“We have to stop her.”
“I will stop her.”
Emma pushed herself up on her arms until her eyes met his. As she did, her nipples grazed across his chest and her hips ground against his. Gideon fought back a hiss. Her act of bravado did nothing but arouse him. “We will stop her. Together.”
His voice came out as a growl. “We will discuss it in the morning.”
“Katarina isn’t murdering the General tonight. I have a friend who can find out when she plans to. No more talk about it tonight.” He grasped her hips in his hands and tugged her on top of him. A gasp escaped her throat as she felt him pressed hard against her. He moaned as she wrapped her fingers around him.
“No more talk,” she murmured.
He lifted her up then lowered her onto him until he was deep inside her. He groaned as she rode him, her head thrown back, her hair flowing down her bare back as she lost herself in the ecstasy.
