Strollers & Stilettos by Nana Malone – Excerpt
“From the looks of it, she has you in her sights. You best formulate a plan quick before she pulls you into one of hers. Then you’ll wake up confused as to how you ended up doing exactly what she wanted you to do in the first place.”
Alec glanced at his wife again. That determined look on her face should not make him as hot as it did. But like some fucked up, internal homing beacon, his dick hardened immediately, and electricity charged his skin, making him feel alive and edgy. Needing to be close to her. Normally, he loved the feeling. Right now, it made him wary.
She glided right up to them with a wide smile for Beckett. At that moment, the music changed to something a little slower, but still with a throbbing, deep reggae beat.
“Beckett, if you’ll excuse me, I need to borrow my husband for a dance.”
Alec narrowed his gaze. A dance? With his cock nestled between their bodies as she wound her hips against him? He wouldn’t last two minutes with her. They both knew it.
He hesitated and looked for a good excuse to back out. She pulled him onto the dance floor and molded her body to his. Her form-fitting dress had a deep slit up the thigh, allowing her more freedom of movement. And if possible, making him even harder. His hands tightened involuntarily at her waist.
Through the fabric of his tuxedo pants, the length of his cock nudged her belly. She looped her arms around his neck and slid her hands into the hair at his nape. “Is that an anaconda in your pocket, or are you happy to see me?”
Alec smirked. “So that’s what’s been strangling me all this time? I wondered why I kept tripping on it.” He grinned wide even though he felt like he might choke with need. “Jaya, honey?”
“Hmmm?” She whispered as she scored her nails over the back of his scalp.
He shivered as the synapses in his brain short-circuited, rendering him stupid and incapable of speech for a moment. When he spoke again, his voice was hoarse and thick. “Are you trying to get me to fuck you right here, because if you keep doing that, I might not give a damn about who can see us.” To prove the point, he pressed tighter to her, his body melding into hers. His cock full and throbbing against her belly.
Jaya slid her hands out of his hair and whispered, “Gosh no.” She blinked wide, honey-brown eyes up at him, innocently.
When she sucked her bottom lip into her mouth, his control snapped. He stepped deliberately away from her body but took her hand and yanked her through the crowd.
He dragged them out of the courtyard and suddenly wished he’d planned this better. Now where were they going to go?
As soon as they were out in the hallway, he couldn’t think about anything but getting her naked, beneath him. He pulled her to him and kissed her deeply with long leisurely licks into her mouth. He was supposed to be turning her on, but he was the one who felt like lava flowed through his veins.
When he drew back, her gaze was heavy-lidded. “Are you kidnapping me, Alec?”
“Yes. There’ll be a hefty ransom to pay. I know exactly how I plan to collect.”
She tugged on her hand, but he didn’t release her. She frowned, and he had to laugh.
“What? You thought you’d seduce me or at least drive me crazy enough I’d rethink my position?”
“No, I don’t want to manipulate you. I want you to see that I’m right. The sex is meant to get us over being mad, so we can talk.”
He grinned. “I like how you think, so you know. I think we have a lot of anger and annoyance to get over.”
He kissed her deeply again, and she mewled in the back of her throat. The haze of lust had him backing her up against the wall in the hallway, completely oblivious to who could see them. It was only when a passerby cleared their throat quietly that he pulled back. He needed her under him. Now.
