He stopped in the shadow of a Fort’s wing, grabbed her arm and turned her to face him.
“Ric was right about one thing,” he said, as much to himself as to her, “you are a mystery.”
“While I hate to disillusion you anymore about Ric,” Mel said, “that’s not exactly a news flash. Most women are a mystery to men—and the reverse.”
He chuckled, the sound oddly husky in the quiet of night. He inhaled, trying to suck enough chilly air into his lungs to clear his head. While the air was frosty, it was also filled with her scent. It wasn’t perfume, in fact she smelled of standard-issue soap, but beneath it was something that had to be Mel. Kind of crisp, like her, with a touch of humor and whatever it was that drew men to women and had since the beginning. Working with the chill, this only sharpened his longing to explore the mystery posed by her mouth.
Mel lifted her chin, examining the horizon with the air of a connoisseur. “Cloudy again. I don’t expect there’ll be an alert tonight. I’ll bet it doesn’t clear before Sunday. That means drills, drills and more drills.”
Jack didn’t care about drills. He slid his hands up the sides of her arms, stopping at her shoulders for any sign his touch was unwelcome. He hoped she didn’t toss him but was willing to take that chance. He didn’t mind taking flight if the reason were good enough.
For a moment she stiffened. He might have missed it if he hadn’t been waiting for it, then she sighed and he felt her body relax, not against him, but not away from him either.
In the deep dark, he could only sense where his target was. There was no radar to help him here. And not unlike their missions, he missed the first time, his mouth landing on the curve of her cheek. Her skin was soft and cold and slightly sweet. He lingered there for a moment, just savoring the sensations of this first contact. Almost reluctantly, he cupped her face with his hands. His hands liked the feel of her skin as much as his mouth did. They spread across the soft silken surface and felt warmth bloom there. He tilted her head and moved in again. This time he was right on target.
Her lips were supple and sweet. They welcomed him, though with a slight reserve. Despite that, he was inclined to linger, to find the passion he felt waiting to join them, to erase the reserve—but it didn’t seem wise, so he slowly, very slowly, backed off. He felt her sigh again and echoed it. He pulled her gently against him and just held her. It felt right. He felt at peace for the first time since he left home. Part of him knew it wouldn’t—it couldn’t last—but he was content to linger there for now. Even the promise of passion in the kiss they’d exchanged couldn’t lure him out. One thing he’d learned in the military—get your priorities right the first time. Passion was easy to find in war time, but peace, even if fleeting, was a gift.
She didn’t speak and he was glad for it. He had no idea what she’d say. In the distance, he heard faint strains of music. The concert. The colonel.
“You’re late for…the concert,” he murmured.
“I said I’d been invited, not that I accepted.” Her voice was soft and lit with laughter. Something broke inside him. He hoped it wasn’t his heart.

USA Today Bestselling author Pauline Baird Jones never liked reality, so she writes books. She likes to wander among the genres, rampaging like Godzilla, because she does love peril mixed in her romance. Loves chocolate, bacon, flamingoes, and mid-century modern anything.
