It would be stupid to stand there shivering and it was clear he had no intention of leaving the bed. She walked around to the far side and slid in, careful to keep the robe tied securely around her as she laid on her side with her back to him. The mattress shifted as Alex rolled to face her back. He ran a gentle hand over her hair.
“Want to talk about it?”
“No.” The memories were still too fresh, too raw. Hold me. Make love to me the way you did before.
She lay rigid, afraid to move, terrified of the needs rising inside her. More than anything in that moment she wanted to erase the emotional distance from him and just feel, experience one last time what lovemaking was like with him. Her muscles knotted with the need to turn over and wrap her arms around him, burrow into his heat and let him burn the lingering fear away. She knew he could do that.
Alex kept his arm around her and laid his head beside hers, his breath fanning the nape of her neck, stirring embers of desire that could burst into flame at any moment. She knew he was aroused, could feel the solid length of his erection pressed against her bottom. But he didn’t act on it. He simply held her close and let his presence chase the demons of her past away. The heat of the hand splayed protectively over her stomach burned through the thin fabric of the robe. Slowly she relaxed, took a few deep breaths and closed her eyes to better savor the feeling of security that washed over her.
She almost moaned. “Feels good,” she whispered.
“Mmm, it does. I love touching you.”
Her heart squeezed. He’d never been shy about that, seeming to truly enjoy touching her and seeing her reaction. She’d soaked up every touch, every kiss and caress like water offered to a woman dying of thirst. She remembered his voice crooning to her as he made her blind with pleasure, praising and guiding her through the erotic journey he’d taken her on. Arousal curled deep in her belly at the thought.
It would be so very easy to slip the robe off, turn in his arms and let him banish the lingering fear and sadness with what she knew he could do to her. He still wanted her and she knew he’d take care of her every need. But she also knew having sex with him would be a huge mistake right now. There was still so much she didn’t know about him.

The only things Natalie Bouchard wants to change are the weekly specials in her Gram’s diner. So when her high school sweetheart strolls back into Dearling, Texas, she allows herself to indulge in a little flirtation, but that’s as far as it goes.
Navy SEAL Sawyer Nolan has returned to sell his father’s land and get the hell out, no matter how enticing he still finds Natalie. Until a storm rolls over the Texas hills, stranding them together at the farm…and the memories of their steamy past lead to a reunion filled with hot days and long nights.
Soon Natalie’s so far under Sawyer’s skin he can’t imagine being without her. But he has a lot of history in Dearling he’d like to leave behind, and Natalie is practically married to this town. If Sawyer wants to be more than just another person who leaves Natalie, he’ll have to give his hometown—and himself—one more chance.
