The sadness in the depths of her eyes twisted a painful knot in his gut.
"Talk to me."
"You don't know me anymore," she whispered. "You don't know anything."
"Then tell me. I want to know. I need to know." He moved his hand to the smooth curve of her neck.
"Mark..." Her gaze dropped from his eyes to his mouth and he took the gesture as an invitation, felt her longing whether she wanted it to be there or not. Every instinct in his body screamed she wanted his lips on hers as much as he wanted them to be welded there too. He inched forward and touched his lips to hers.
She tasted of wine and femininity, a heady combination which filled his entire body and catapulted him back to a place he'd thought he never experience again. Her brief moment of resistance caused his hand to tighten before she curved her arms around his neck. Mark's heart picked up speed at her unexpected surrender. He increased the ferocity of the kiss, taking it, owning it, knowing it might be a one chance encounter--something that might never happen again.
