“How will they find out? The only people who know won’t say anything—well, on my side for sure. What about your side?”
“Kit knows.” I wince. “After we kissed that first time, I was a mess.” I meet his eyes. “He guessed. But you can trust Kit. He would never say anything.”
“It’s fine, India.” He takes my hand again, squeezing it.
“And Sadie, my old receptionist, of course knows you were a patient, but she is bound by a confidentiality agreement that I make all my receptionists sign.”
“So, we’re covered.”
“I guess. But what about Jett? I don’t want him in the public eye because we’re together.”
“I’ll protect him. I will have my lawyer and publicist stop the press from publishing any pictures of him. I don’t want to hide us, babe. I have you, and I want the world to know that you’re mine. You and Jett are both my family now.”
“Mmhmm…you have a problem with that?”
“No problem at all. And you do realize that we’ve just made Jett’s dream come true—you and me being together? He’s going to be over the moon. He’ll also expect to come to every race you do.”
“I would be offended if he didn’t come.” He smiles. “Jett can come wherever with me. So long as his hot mother comes along, too.”
“And she will, as long as work permits it.”
“Can you take a break from work at all? I have to leave for Hungary in a few weeks. As it is school break, I would love it if you and Jett would come with me.”
“I’m not going to be able to say no in this, am I?”
“No, babe, you’re not.”
“I should be able to juggle things around a bit, and if necessary, I can always get someone in to cover my patients while I’m away.”
“So, you will come?”
“I’ll ask Jett, but I know what his answer will be. So, yes, we’ll come.”
“Good.” He rolls me onto my back and kisses me hard on the mouth.
“Your work takes you away a lot?” I blink up at him.
“It does. But we will figure it out. We will make it work.”
“We’d better because I’m risking my job for you.” I poke his side with my finger.
“Hey!” He laughs, grabbing my hand, stopping me. “I am the only one who gets to poke anyone around here.”
I raise my eyebrow. “You have a dirty mind.”
“Oh, babe, you have no idea.”
A shiver runs through me, curling my toes. “Then, you’ll have to enlighten me.”
“I plan on it.” He shifts, pressing his very apparent erection up against me.
“That is what you do to me. I could go all night with you.”
“Because you are irresistible.”
He brushes his mouth over mine, grazing my lower lip with his teeth. I kiss him back, running my fingers through his hair. I touch the scar on his scalp, the scar his hair hides from the rest of the world.
I press my hand to his face. “I wish I’d been there for you after the accident.”
“I wouldn’t have wanted you there…to see me that way.”
His eyes close on a long blink before slowly opening to meet mine. I see it all there in his eyes—the memories that still hurt him now. And I regret brining it up.
“I was a mess.”
“I’ve already seen you at your worst, Leandro.” My hand slides around his neck.
“No, you haven’t.” He shakes his head. “What you saw was a frustrated man, battling his demons with alcohol and women.”
I wince at the mention of his past indiscretions.
“I’m sorry,” he whispers, brushing his nose along my cheek.
“Don’t be. You’re not saying anything I didn’t already know. Just hearing it was hard back then. Now, it’s…just harder.”
“It is in the past.”
“I know.” I run my finger over his scar again. “I’m glad I’m your future.”
“Me, too.” He brings his lips back to mine, brushing them over mine. “How long can you stay before you have to get back home?”
“I’m okay for a few hours.”
I trail my fingers through his hair and down his back. I lightly score my nails over his skin, causing him to groan with pleasure.
“Good, because for these next few hours, I am going to bury myself deep inside you, making you come so fucking hard and so often that you will never want to leave.”
“Less talking, more showing,” I murmur, lost to him again.
“Oh, I am going to show you.” He chuckles darkly. “Right fucking now.”
He takes my mouth in a lush deep kiss. Then, kneeing my legs apart, he presses his hard cock up against my wet heat and suddenly thrusts inside me.
“Leandro!” I cry out, instantly breathless.
Stilling inside me, he stares down at me with those all-encompassing dark eyes of his. “Mine,” he says low with meaning. “You are mine, India, and I am never letting you go again.”
I rouse, feeling Leandro’s warm solid body wrapped around me. With the sun on my face, I feel an ache between my legs, which can only come from having amazing sex.
Hang on. I can feel the sun on my face. What time is it?
