Teaser Tuesday - Almost Chocolate and Peanut Butter

Since I was talking about this yesterday, I thought I'd post a snippet of Dying Embers - where they almost but don't get romantic...

Jace reached for the phone.  “I have to get the crew on this…”
“Not right now, you don’t.  For pete’s sake, it’s four o’clock in the morning Dallas time.  Your crew, if they’re smart, are home in bed, fast asleep.  Which, I might add, is where we both should be.”
His statement stopped her fingers on the number pad, but his last few words stopped her breath in her throat.  “What?”  Images of the two of them curled in each others’ arms, their breath coming slow and deep, made the blood rush to her face.
“Easy there, Gunga Din.  I meant you in your bed and me in mine.”  He stood and touched her cheek with one callused finger.  “Trust me, Jace.  When we decide we’re going to sleep together, we’ll need to be fully rested because there won’t be any actual sleeping involved.”
