Giving in to one of her fantasies, Shannon plunged her fingers into his hair, reveling in its softness. She grabbed two handfuls and pulled his mouth back to hers as she slowly rocked against him, feeling the fire inside her burning hotter and hotter. His hands were on her thighs, stroking her skin gently, their warmth seeming to intensify her ache. He did nothing more than caress her skin with his large palms, but wherever his hands touched her, she felt nothing but trails of fire. Shannon barely felt the rain as it poured down steadily, completely consumed by the man in her arms.
"Eagle," she panted. The pulsing heat rose swiftly, threatening to burn her to a crisp. "Eagle, oh my God! Oh sweet, merciful..." Shuddering against him, she felt waves of ecstasy engulf her, making her pull him closer, wanting full contact with his body.
"Easy, Shannon," he whispered as he nipped at her neck. "It's all right. I've got you."
Her entire body shook with pleasure as she held on to his shoulders for dear life, never imagining the excitement shooting through her could be so wonderful.
"I want you, Eagle. Now." She gasped as he rocked her against him once more. "Can we stop?"
His answer was to grab her head in his hands and kiss her roughly, thrusting his tongue into her mouth. With that one, passionate kiss, Eagle laid claim to Shannon's heart. She was in love with him, there was no use denying it.
"We have already stopped," he whispered against her lips.
"Then make love to me, Eagle's Wing. Right here, right now. Don't let me go."
Without another word, he jumped off his horse and tugged her down with him, neither of them caring about the falling rain that soon soaked them through.
