Gideon's hands started moving over her, tugging her t-shirt up her body. Letting go of him, she raised her hands over her head. The shirt came up over her face, then her arms. Gideon dropped the shirt to the ground.
His eyes traveled over her body for a moment, lingering on her bra-covered breasts, moving lower as he reached for the zipper of her jeans. Lainey watched as he tugged down the zipper, her breath drawing up short as his hands moved to her waist, pulling the jeans down her body.
She rested a hand on his shoulder, wiggling her hips as he lowered the jeans over her legs.
Dropping them on the ground, he straightened, his eyes smoldering as they rose to meet hers. His hands were back on her hips, teasing his fingers beneath the elastic of her panties. A wave of heat washed through her body as he rubbed his fingers over the sensitive skin of her stomach, teasing the garment lower.
Before he could move any further, she grabbed the edge of his t-shirt, tugging it free of his pants. He raised his hands, as she'd done, and she pulled the shirt up as far as she could, standing on tiptoe. He pulled the shirt over his head and added it to the pile of clothes.
With eager fingers she reached for the fly of his pants, undoing the first button. Gideon's hands stilled against her skin and he watched, lips parted, as she moved to the next button. Her fingers brushed against the bulge of his erection and she heard his sharp intake of air. For a moment, she froze, wondering what the hell she was doing.
But then she looked up at Gideon, the sensuous lips curved in a seductive smile, gray eyes dark with passion. And any doubt she had vanished. She didn't care that she was thousands of miles from home, in a dangerous country with a stranger. All she cared about was the heat thrumming through her body, the chance to feel alive again, even if it was momentary. Even if it was wrong.

Stumbling, she followed him as he moved with feline grace over the rocks and tree roots. “Watch your head.” She ducked beneath the edge of the rocks and stopped. The light flicked on again, illuminating the space. The floor was sand and rocks, the area extending much further than she thought. “Are there animals back there?
“Yesterday they were trying to decide what to do with me, to let me go or get rid of me. I knew too much and knew where they were, but they’re not killers. But they were also getting desperate.” Gideon came back down the rocks from the cave. “Here.” He tossed a bottle of water to Aiden. “You were a liability. And they’re not set up for keeping hostages long-term.” They both looked up at Gideon. “And you…” He pointed at Lainey. “You’re a loose cannon. What you did back there…” “What I did back
Aiden. “You can start the process to get your passport tomorrow and notify the authorities you were kidnapped. You should be able to get flights back to Chicago as well once you explain everything that happened and how you both ended up here.” There was a strained, awkward silence that was finally broken by Aiden opening the door. “Not sure about you two, but I want a bath, a steak, and a bed, in that order.” He climbed out, stretching as he stood in the gathering twilight. He turned back,
chicken and a salad for delivery to her room. The brief thought crossed her mind to go see what Aiden was doing, but she thought better of it. He was tired and she knew from past experience he’d be grouchy if she woke him. Better to let him get a good night’s sleep. She wished she’d thought about buying pajamas or at least a robe.

Her breathing was fast and shallow, and for a moment she wondered just how long this staring match was going to continue. But then Gideon shook his head, waving a dismissive hand in the space between them. “Fine. Do whatever you think you have to do.
