The fog of desire cleared from Warwick’s mind. Katiya bit her lips, straightened her shoulders then looked at him.
“Before you list all the reasons why our dating would not work out or say that we are from different worlds and all that, let me just stay that we’re both from the same world. Earth. And this earth man wants to go out with you, an earth woman.” He looked her over again. “Among other things. See you as often as I can and get to know each other very well. So are you ready for that, Katiya Wright, or are you too afraid to give us a chance?”
Katiya’s light hazel eyes narrowed, then a vixenish grin curved her lips. She turned and went back into the house. In moments she returned with a bag that matched her shoes over her shoulder. He bit back a harsh groan as her body brushed his.
“I need to close the door,” she stated.
He stepped back. She closed, locked the door and turned to face him. Warwick’s lips twitched at the challenge in her eyes.
“If you weren’t planning to go out with me, why are you dressed so sexy?” he asked.
She smiled another wanton grin. “You think you have all the answers, Warwick, but if we’re going to date—how did you put it? Often and maybe other things?—the first thing you should learn is when I try for sexy, you’ll know it.” She moved closer and spoke, her breath wafting against him. “This old thing is just the warm up. The next thing is, don’t say anything you can’t back up.”
She went to step away back but he put his hand on her waist, stilling her. Lowering his head, he spoke close to her ear.
“And you’ll know soon, I don’t say things I can’t stand behind.”
