“I think we should talk,” he said.
“I'd rather not,” she said, her eyes promising...what?
“Nicole...” he sighed.
“What?” she asked. “I thought about it all day at work. I'm not going to hide
it and I'm not going to fight it any longer, Patrick. I want you. I want you in my
bed, as my lover.” She placed a hand on her belly. “I want you inside me, as my lover.”
“And Danny?” he asked. “Your friends? The firm? What will we do about that?
Some people,” he said, understating the case tremendously, “might not approve.” In
St. Louis, the stands erupted as the Cardinals hit another home run.
“If we got married, sure,” she said. “I don't think there is any way we could
make that work. Not without leaving town and starting over where no one knew us.

inside of her thighs. She giggled as her skin quivered, her mouth open wide, her
tongue darting into his mouth to wrestle with his. Slow and sensual, she pushed her

He was just unclasping her bra when there was a tremendous crash at the door.
Nicole jerked up, her face draining, staring towards the front hall like a scared
