No one had ever called her precious before. That involuntary flutter started deep inside her again, sending a flurry of Shockwaves rippling through her most private regions. She shifted uneasily in the chair in a vain attempt to quell the feeling. When she braved a glance in his direction, his warm smile broadened.

That was obvious. It seemed almost sacred, the way Nature seemed to bow in awe. Not even the woodland creatures spoke. All was still, until a twig snapped beneath her feet. Becca stood stock still as Klaus stopped and turned, his head cocked, his ears pricked to the sound, affording her an unexpected and alarming view of his manhood. She checked a gasp. How magnificent he was! Even in a flaccid state, and at such a distance. She held her breath and didn't draw another until he turned back and moved on again.

Whatever it was, something shocking throbbed deep inside her whenever he spoke, whenever she met his riveting gaze. He was having a dangerous effect upon her, and she made a bold attempt to steel herself against the lure of his charm.
