The refreshing feeling of swimming in the pond was long gone. Libby’s skin was still hot and electrified from being so close to Jackson during the ride back to the house.
When she turned to leave the tack room, Jackson dragged her into his arms.
“Hold on a second,” he said.
Her legs melted beneath her and the only thing holding her upright was Jackson. In his arms she felt small and whole and special in a way she’d never known.
Libby had dated men over the years. She’d thought she’d been in love once. But nothing had ever felt like this.
Jackson pulled her closer, pressing her chest against his. But she didn’t feel the sensation she’d expected with the contact.
She fought all the usual fears she’d had about what it would be like to be with a man and just allowed herself to feel. Would he know the difference in her? Would it matter? She didn’t want to think about it. Instead, Libby focused on the feel of Jackson’s arms wound tightly around her body, and the stirring she felt in her belly, as she pressed herself up against his hot skin.
His strength and the gentleness of his hands as his fingers dug into her hair. When he finally bent his head and his mouth covered hers, it made it easy for Libby to forget the struggles she’d been facing. Oh, it would be so wonderful to stay in Jackson’s arms, she decided. Nothing could hurt her there.
Jackson pulled away to gaze into her eyes and take a deep breath, but it only left her wanting more of him. Everything inside her screamed that this was so right.
“I’d wondered what it would be like to taste you,” he said, looking down at her with a smile that stole her breath away.
