I force myself to stand taller. Straighter. To speak cleanly and crisply despite my frayed nerves. And, yes, despite my own damnable desire. “Why are you doing this?”
“You know why,” he says as he strides to me. I hold my ground, resisting the urge to move backward and clutch the credenza behind me. “Because I want you, Sylvia.”
He reaches out, then traces his fingertip along my collarbone as I stand stock-still, trying very hard not to shiver from the thrill of his touch.
“I want you naked,” he whispers in a voice as tempting as sin. “I want you exposed. I want you open to me. And I think,” he adds in the kind of voice that will broach no argument, “that you want me, too.”
I exhale slowly and force myself to look at him. “Goddamn you, Jackson Steele.”
“I once told you that I’m a man who goes after what he wants, and that’s still true. But here’s a question for you, Sylvia. Are you a woman who does the same? You say you want this project, this re- sort. Prove it. It’s here for the taking. Right now, the only obstacle is you.” I say nothing, because if I speak, I’m afraid of what I’ll say.
His eyes, like blue fire, meet mine. “Tonight. Eight o’clock. Be ready for me.”
