Dan found Jenny in the same place he’d left her beside the table. Her breath caught when she saw him, and her fingers blanched as they tightened around her dice bag. “What happens at Comic-Con, stays at Comic-Con,” she said in a tense whisper.
“Maybe for most people, but this isn’t that.”
“No shit.” She lowered her eyes and swiped her notes from the table. “We should get to the restaurant before the others worry about us.”
He caught her by the wrist as she passed and pulled her against him. She was even more tempting than he remembered, and before he could stop himself, his lips were on hers.
She started at first, her back stiffening. A smothered cry of surprise rose from her throat. But a second later, the crash of dice rattled across the wooden floor, and her arms were around his neck. She teased the corners of his mouth with her tongue, begging him to deepen the kiss.
He opened his mouth to her and tasted the sweet remnants of the watermelon Jolly Ranchers she’d been eating all afternoon. The kiss was every bit as explosive as their first kiss two weeks ago. All traces of common sense fled his mind as the blood rushed to his dick. With their lips still devouring each other, he backed her up against the table, noting the small thrill when her legs wrapped around his waist. She wanted him just as much as he wanted her, so he was surprised when she planted her hands on his chest and pushed him away.
“Why not?” he asked before drawing the soft flesh at the bottom of her ear between his teeth.
“We could get caught.” Despite her protests, she tilted her head back, exposing more of her neck for him to taste.
“They’ve all left.”
“We shouldn’t.” Her arguments became as weak as the whimper in her voice.
He trailed his mouth along her neck toward her shoulder. Time to convince her they should. “Tell me to stop, and I will.”
A shiver rippled through her, and she gathered his shirt into her fists, pulling it out of his jeans. “I can’t.”
Objective unlocked! He cupped his hands around her warm leather-clad ass and pulled her even tighter against him. Her hips ground against him in a tantalizing rhythm. God, he couldn’t wait to get inside her again.
There was just one small hitch. He lifted his head and asked, “Do you have a condom?”
She shook her head, and desperate disappointment filled her dark eyes. “Do you?”
“No.” The word came out as a frustrated growl, and he let her go. The throbbing in his dick refused to ease, though. He refused to trust the condom hidden in the back of his wallet again. There had to be condoms somewhere in this house. “Wait right here. I’ll be back.”
She opened her mouth to say something, but he took off down the stairs to the middle floor before she had a chance to refuse him. If Paul had something going on with Gretchen, then he’d have condoms stashed somewhere. Thankfully, he found one in the nightstand and ran back upstairs, holding it up like it was the One Ring.

What happens at Comic-Con, stays at Comic-Con…
Robotics engineer Jenny Nguyen has given up on finding Mr. Right. So when her brother and his husband approach her to act as surrogate for their child, she sees it as her only chance to have a child and accepts. One week after she initiates the process, however, she meets a man who gets her heart pumping for all the right reasons and gives into the temptation. When the test turns positive, she’s believes she can’t handle both the pregnancy and dating, but she underestimates how persistent a Daniel Kelly can be.
When surgeon and gamer-geek Dan meets a pretty woman dressed as a Sailor Scout at Comic-Con, a roll of his lucky 20-sided die tells him he should take a gamble on her. One night of passion leaves him longing for more, but Jenny’s refusal to return his calls afterward leaves him wondering if the attraction was one-sided. An accidental discovery of her pregnancy has him convinced the baby is his, and he’ll stop at nothing to win her heart
