He circled her slowly, almost close enough to touch, but not quite. Macey whimpered.
He needed to touch her soon. He had to. If he didn't, she'd melt into a pile of need and might never surface again.
“Please,” she whispered hoarsely. She hadn’t meant to let him know quite how desperate she was right at this moment, but it was too late for that now.
Jared chuckled. “Please what, Macey?” he almost purred her name as he stepped up behind her. She could feel his warmth against her back. And yet he was still holding back.
“Touch me,” she begged.
“Not yet.” Macey could hear the amusement in his tone, and if she hadn’t been able to pick up the slight undercurrent of something else too, then she might have been mad.
They stood unmoving for another few moments, the anticipation between them almost being too much. When it became clear he wasn’t going to make the first move, she turned swiftly and pressed her body against his.
Macey raised herself on tip toes so she could capture his mouth with hers. There was nothing gentle about this kiss either. It was intense. It was powerful, and it was everything that she needed right at this moment.
Maybe she shouldn’t be kissing one of the men who’d effectively kidnapped her and held her to ransom, but she pushed the thought away quickly. If they’d wanted to take advantage of her, then they could have done while she was under Jared’s magic the first time. Well, the only time. She was definitely under his spell right now, but it was a spell of a different kind.
