Title: Guesthouse
Author: Orlando Linda M.
 
Excerpt
She crawled up onto the bed to get to his left leg. She lifted it as she had done to his right, bending and straightening his muscular limb. "You know, if you don't keep exercising, you're going to lose all this muscle."

"I know. I had a therapist down in Boston. But he was too annoying for words. I was really glad to get away from him."

"But he helped you keep in shape over the last few months."

"I guess he did a little for me. But he was just in it for the money. He was on salary, but my father told him there was a bonus in it for him, if he made any real progress with me. Have you got something like that going with my old man?"

"No. I'm just supposed to be here. I get paid whether I get results or not. So I guess I could just kick back and not do anything, let you wallow in your self-pity all summer. But I'm not going to."

Lauren looked into his eyes. She could see that he was trying to make up his mind about here, whether she could be trusted or not. Then he reached for her, wrapping his arms around her and pulling her down on top of him. In an instant his lips were clamped over hers, his tongue demanding entrance to her mouth. She didn't struggle, just allowed him to kiss her. Then his hand dropped lower, tracing a path along her curves. She could feel his maleness pressing against her, knew he was as hungry for physical contact as she was.

Her head was spinning as he released his hold on her. He didn't speak, just continued to stare at her. She knew her cheeks were flushed. He smiled, seeming pleased with himself.

"See, some parts still work."

She crawled off the bed. "I think we've done enough exercising for today. I'll see you at dinner."

She couldn't face him, couldn't bear to look into those intense eyes. It was like he could see right through her, knew her every thought, every emotion. It was too unsettling. She ran from his room, her feelings suddenly overwhelming.
