A warm pressure on her mouth woke her. He was kissing her again. Oh, God, how she loved everything about this man. He nibbled her lower lip and sat up.
“Are you awake, my Evelyn?”
Sometimes he could be aggravating. “I’m not your Evelyn, Max.”
“Are you sure about that?” He leaned down over her, his fangs grazing her neck.
“Don’t you dare?”
“I said I wouldn’t.” He kissed her shoulder. His hand slipped onto her breast and she moved it. He chuckled. “If I didn’t have to patrol tonight, I would stay and show you how much I worship every inch of you.”
Evelyn shivered. It had been a long time since she was properly worshipped. “My supplicants usually buy me dinner and expensive gifts first.” She was joking, of course.
He leaned up on his elbows gazing down on her. “Supplicants, huh?” He narrowed his gorgeous blue-gray eyes and then smiled. Evelyn suspected a bit of mischief there. “From this moment onward, I will worship my goddess properly. I beg your forgiveness for having to leave you.” He bit through the strap of her nightgown and nudged it down revealing her breast.
“What are you doing?”
“Worshipping you.” His tongue rolled her nipple in a caress.
Evelyn clawed the sheets. Then she pushed against him. He released her, and she sat up. “You have to patrol, so it’s no use worshipping me now. Besides you’re going to cost me a fortune in lingerie.”
“I’ll buy you a new nightgown, something in black lace and sheer panels.”
Yikes. She was way past hot and bothered. “Max, go patrol. Just do me one favor.”
“What’s that, my Evelyn?”
“Don’t get killed.”
