Excerpt from Wicked Intent by Lora Leigh
Lucian Conover was going to be the death of her. Tally Raines inputted the last of the figures he had requested into the data file and sighed in boredom. The afternoon stretched out ahead of her and there was a sale at Brighton's, the exclusive shoe store in the city.
Sneaking out of the office was becoming harder to do daily. She swore Lucian had hidden cameras in the office to record the time she spent away from her desk. She had one hour for lunch and one hour only. That was barely enough time to get to her favorite caf? and order a cappuccino, let alone eat or check out the sales. Working for Jesse had been much easier. Whatever had made her think she could tolerate working for Conover?
Of course, she had tried to object to the move, but to no avail. Jesse had been gleefully satisfied at having her out of his office. She snorted. That new battle-axe he had hired probably did his filing for him too. The man was much too spoiled, especially after his marriage to Terrie.
Thinking of Terrie had a bittersweet sadness running through her. Jesse had ordered no more piercings, no more tattoos, and he seemed determined to tag along on every outing she had with the other woman. No more adventures. There were so few of her friends who could appreciate some of her more daring escapades.
Not that there had been any in the past weeks. Trolling her favorite spots had dimmed a bit, though she wasn't certain why. The fact that it had begun the night she walked in on the little m?nage with Jesse, Terrie and Lucian had nothing to do with it, she assured herself. But she couldn't get the vision of it out of her mind.
Terrie had been sandwiched between the two men, Jesse's cock spearing up her ass as Lucian fucked her pussy with wild lust. Tally had left quickly, but she couldn't forget what she had seen. She couldn't get the arousal it had sparked out of her body and it was driving her insane.
Not that she really wanted Conover, she assured herself firmly, ignoring the pulsing heat between her thighs. Arrogant, snide, self-important ass that he was, she could definitely do much better. Couldn't she?
"Tally, I need the Charter file." Lucian stepped from his office, a scowl on his face as he stared over at her.
She lifted a brow with cool inquiry. "The Charter contract was dropped last week."
She turned back to the computer and saved the data information before picking up the file she had been working on and placing it on the side of her desk with a dozen others. She could practically hear Lucian grinding his teeth.
"Did I ask you when it was dropped?" he questioned her softly. "I don't believe I did."
Now that voice... Tally tensed to control the shiver that wanted to work up her spine. It took all her control, but she kept her movements smooth, languid, as she exited the program then sat back in her chair before swiveling around to meet his gaze once again.
She crossed her legs lazily, ignoring the thrill of excitement as his gaze flickered to the silk-covered flesh and heated up with a flare of lust. And if she wasn't mistaken, he was definitely aroused.
Keeping her expression calm in the face of the sudden fire flickering in his green eyes wasn't easy. His hard features were almost savagely outlined, the full curve of his lower lip tightening as his gaze rose to hers once again.
She lifted a brow slowly, more than aware that the perfect arch of the wing-tipped brow would make him furious. If he was angry, he was off balance. An out-of-control Lucian she could handle. The calm, determined Lucian had sent trepidation skittering through her system.
His brows snapped into a frown as his green eyes darkened for long seconds. Then, like the calm before a storm, his expression cleared. This could be interesting. She forced herself to remain relaxed as his face hardened.
"The Charter file," he said carefully. "Now."
She sighed with exaggerated forbearance. "Very well. Though I don't understand why you need to go over a contract that was obviously dropped a week ago. Besides, the owner is a maggot. You wouldn't like him."
She rose to her feet and walked slowly over to the file cabinet as she restrained her own anger. Whereas Jesse had most likely understood her reluctance to deal with the tall, imposing metal cabinets, Lucian merely stood negligently against the doorframe and watched her with narrowed eyes.
He would want a file that was stored in the upper drawer. The cabinet was over five and a half feet tall; Tally was barely five two. Pulling the drawer out, she stood on her tiptoes and began riffling through the files until she found the one he wanted. Lifting it out, she pushed the drawer in and walked sedately over to him.
His gaze was hot, but not from anger now.
"Your file, Mr. Conover." She handed it to him, fighting the flush she could feel gathering on her cheeks as his gaze dropped to her breasts. She couldn't keep her breasts from tingling, though, or her nipples from heating beneath his gaze. She breathed slow and evenly, but her heart was racing out of control.
"Your shirt..." He ignored the file, his hand reaching out as his finger slid beneath the parted fabric.
Tally dropped her gaze, almost flinching as his finger slid beneath the edge of her lacy, low-cut bra. The two buttons had somehow slid free on the white silk shirt, leaving her all but bare to his gaze. The sight of his flesh, dark, yet not as dark as her own, sent vibrant trails of awareness blazing through her body.
