The Mating (Wild Cats Part One): Erotic Romance Series
This torture has been going since that first time he came in to have coffee with clients
almost a month ago.
She remembered his eyes locking on her that first day-and the sizzle of heat she felt as
she froze, staring back involuntarily at his perfectly handsome face.
And since then, every afternoon he would come in. He would order coffee and would
stay for one hour.
She wondered at his discipline. She hadn't even seen him look at his watch. But in one
