I laid back the lounge chair and rolled to my stomach, content.
Sounds of splashing faded as I dozed.
And then I heard a beautiful voice. . . . “Cover your arse, and nobody gets hurt.”
I lifted my head to see Kaidan crouched next to me.
He was here! Just as I was about to get up and throw my arms around him, his gaze slid down my body to my butt and stayed there.
Hello, stormy eyes. I felt twice as hot under the sun as I had one minute ago.
I threw the towel over my body, which forced his eyes back to mine.
“Hey,” I whispered. He touched my face, and I leaned into his palm.
“I feel like it’s been a year since I saw you,” he said softly.
“I’ve missed you.” I reached up and cupped his hand.
“I’ve missed you, too.”
“But you’re still in trouble.” His voice was low and gravelly.
