“I knew you weren’t involved with this mess, the moment I looked into your eyes.”
He hadn’t moved any closer, but Nia felt as if he had touched her.
“Your eyes tell me everything I need to know.” This time he did step closer to her, his gaze riveted on hers. He touched the side of her face with the back of his hand and she closed her eyes.
Her body still thrummed with desire despite the shocking phone call from Tess. She wanted him to wrap his arms back around her and make her stop thinking about the diamonds and mounting fear.
“I should go.”
“No.” Her eyes snapped open and she grabbed his hand. “I don’t want to be here alone.” Wow, she really was going to play the damsel in distress card.
“You won’t be alone. There’s a squad car keeping tabs on your house.”
Nia lifted her chin and looked at him. “I want you to stay with me.” If he could read her eyes as well as he said, then her meaning was clear as crystal. She felt his hand tighten around hers and waited for him to refuse her request.
“Well, we haven’t finished dinner yet.” His lips curved in a teasing, slow smile Nia would’ve gladly given up all the diamonds in the world to see again.
“I’ll warm it up.”
“No need,” Quin said, settling back at the table.
No need, indeed. Her body was heating up on the inside as he dug into her food. She admired the slant of his nose as he talked and the motion of his strong jaw as he chewed. The cadence of his sexy voice, deepening with his subtle accent heightened her arousal like a fine wine. She could simply listen to him talk all day long. Didn’t matter what he talked ab—
She blinked, heat flooding her cheeks. “What were you saying?”
He gave her the briefest of smiles. Like he knew exactly what she was thinking about.
“I asked you what you wanted Santa to bring you this Christmas.”
A tall, gorgeously bronzed, muscles-for-days, federal agent.
