Lucy Vasilia applied her electronic signature to a document and folded her nano tablet before looking up at Ian Hadley. She made a final, slow perusal of his well-toned physique, suppressing a sigh that their meeting had come to an end. "That should conclude our business. I've sent a copy of the contract to your ship's computer."
He smiled, a slow, sensuous curve of his lips. "Excellent." He made no move to leave her office.
"Did you have further questions?" Lucy managed to keep her tone professional, though he made her want to purr.
"I do have one question." He paused, his bright blue eyes hot and unrelenting. "Would you like company?"
Lucy tilted her head and stared at him. "For what?"
His smile deepened. "When I fuck you."
Lucy sucked in her breath. "Presumptuous, aren't you?"
"I've seen your eyes drifting down to my cock. You want this as much as I do."
She stared pointedly at his crotch. His erection threatened to burst one of the seams of his expensive suit. "You certainly are making a rather impressive display."
He smirked. "Indeed."
"I assume you'd like your head of security to join us?"
"Ah, so you did do your homework."
"I never meet with anyone I haven't researched thoroughly. You hired Langley at Captain Devlin's suggestion." It was a statement, not a question.
Ian nodded. "Devlin said to tell you hello, by the way."
"Did he indeed? I take it Chief Langley isn't fully human."
Ian shook his head. "He's not, but I have the impression you won't be disturbed by his particular needs."
She grinned. "I'm not as fragile as I look."
"I never thought you were. So what will it be? How much hard use are you game for today?"
She nearly choked. "I can take whatever you and your lover want to give."
"You may live to regret that statement. When?"
She held up a finger signaling him to wait and pressed a button on her desk unit, paging her receptionist. "Cynthia."
"Cancel my next two appointments."
Ian raised his brows, studying her curiously.
A sharp voiced erupted from the comm. Unit. "With all due respect, Director, the delegation from --"
"My business with Mr. Hadley is taking longer than expected. I will simply have to reschedule."
"Yes, Director." Cynthia sounded resigned.
Lucy looked at Ian, fighting the urge to tremble. The sexual heat in his eyes was devastating. She'd never slept with a business associate, and she'd certainly never cancelled an appointment so she could get a quick fuck in her office.
Then again, she couldn't recall a man who'd ever turned her on as hard and fast as Ian did. She'd glimpsed him with his lover as she'd headed to dinner the night before. Connor Langley was a glorious mix of beauty and pure animal power. He moved with a panther's grace, but she had no doubt he could kill most men one-handed. She'd been working her ass off. She deserved a treat. "Call Langley now."
