He turned toward her with a sensual grace at once lethal and provocative. He purposely held her gaze and lifted the shirt he wore over his head and tossed it aside. "You want me," he said. "And I want you."

They stopped dancing, each staring hard at the other. Aaron couldn't hear the music anymore. He only saw Jenny. Her eyes were blazing at him, her cheeks were flushed crimson, and her soft pink lips trembled ever so slightly.
Half mad with wanting, he gathered her into his arms, and claimed her lips with his ...
She was an enchantress, a fairy princess, a witch all in white, who had cast a spell over him. And he knew, by the power of that one kiss, that no other woman could satisfy him now ...
