His lips were so soft, so tender as they forged a trail up her belly, toward her breasts. Esme's belly quivered under the soft assault of his silken hair and she giggled, gathering the soft strands into one hand and pulling his head up so she could peer into his long lashed, green eyes. "That tickles."
He grinned at her, his full bottom lip quivering with mirth. "I can tickle a different area if you'd like?"
His voice was husky with desire and made her toes curl. She shook her head. "I want to know your name."
His smile slid away and his pretty eyes darkened with emotion. "Are you sure?"
She laughed. "Of course I'm sure. Why wouldn't I be? You know my name, right?"
He nodded, "Esme. My gift."
Esme's smile softened. She dropped the thick silk of his hair and touched his cheek with a tender finger. He turned his head and placed a kiss in her palm. "Gift me with your name."
His eyes widened and he sat up, some strong emotion Esme couldn't identify transforming his handsome face.
Esme had no idea why she'd said that to him, but she wanted to pull the words back as he rolled off the bed and stepped away from her, standing gloriously naked beside the bed.
"I've waited so long." He whispered. Then his gaze sharpened and he looked up, squaring his broad shoulders proudly. "My name is Adir Phineas."
Esme pushed herself to one elbow and smiled at him. "Adir." What a sexy name."
Adir lowered his head in a small bow. "At your service, M'lady."
Esme cocked her head, "M'lady?"
Adir nodded. "I have waited long for one of your lineage to ask my name. I give you my word I will keep you safe and love you to the end of my time."
Esme's eyes widened, "Whoa! You're just a dream lover. You aren't real!"
Adir frowned. "It is true, M'lady. Until you find where I am trapped and set me free."
