He brushed his lips against hers, sending wild tingles skittering through her body.
"What's next, Jack? Are you going back to hostage negotiation?"
"Would you mind if I did?"
"Like you said, you can look after yourself." She kissed his chin, the stubble scratching her lips. "As long as you come back to me after every assignment."
"Where else would I go?"
"So that's it? You're going to continue rescuing people?"
"Actually, the guys and I were thinking of reactivating Prospero."
Her pulse jumped. That was an even scarier proposition, but she refused to hold him back. "Really? Not getting a little old for that?"
His lips twisted into that halfway smile she loved. "We'd be doing the recruiting this time. Forming another team of men to take up where we left off, allowing them to create that bond stronger than all others."
She curled her arms around his neck. "Stronger than all others, huh?"
He lowered his head and kissed her, taking her breath away, giving her life and hope and promise.
