If you come from Michigan with nothing but snow and ice at Christmas time, what do you expect in the heat of Florida in December, hot decorations and hot love?
Gigi had given up on being happy when everything and everyone she cared for had been jerked out of her life, leaving her shattered. Three years later, she was transferred from Michigan to Florida. She ignored the handsome manager she had to work with. She ignored her co-workers who laughed through Thanksgiving while they looked forward to Christmas. Gigi grunted in disgust because they even decorated their silly palm trees since there weren’t many pine trees in front of the home in Sarasota. But fate always seemed to have a plan.
She came out of the room backwards, hanging onto the door for support as she pulled it closed.
Before she could turn, she was in the arms of Doug in the dim narrow hallway.
"Are you okay?" His voice was low and close to her ear.
She hesitated wanting to get away from him, yet uncomfortable with the way the boat was tipping. She leaned against the door with his hands on each side of her head.
"I'm okay, I guess. What do you think? Will the Captain be taking us back because of this storm?" She couldn't see his expression with the dim light behind him keeping his face in darkness.
"I could go and check. But you would owe me a small gift." He actually chuckled.
So, he wasn't afraid of the storm if he could make a pass at her, but she had to admit, the primitive feeling of a big male backing her up during a force of nature was causing some unusual heat in her body.
Without putting his hands on her, he slowly moved forward and lowered his head. She felt his hot breath and didn't move. No, that was not true as she tilted her head back enough so that their lips would meet if he were going to kiss her. She didn't even ask herself why.
Doug didn't hesitate. He knew an invitation when he saw one and with the dim light over his shoulder, he saw her eyes half close and her mouth half open. He started slow, but the taste of that soft mouth with her response made him take over with a need to taste and feel all of her.
He had a gift that he hadn't expected. She responded, fully, pushing her body against him, opening her mouth, and pulling on his tongue. He shoved her back against the door, hoping it held against both their weights as he felt the length of her against his body especially against his erection that was shoving upward into her stomach. He put his arms around her and turned them both in the small hallway, pushing her against the wood lined wall.
God he was surprised at how much she gave back. How much she had kept locked up and was willing to unleash to him now. He wondered if they had cabins on this boat?
It was at this moment that the boat groaned and tipped first over on one side and then on the other, deciding to stay and settle as it was rocked and buffered in winds and rain.
