Roarke seemed surprised he was dressed. Niall viewed
Roarke’s typical, casual clothing—jeans and a T-shirt
with sneakers on his feet. The shirt hugged his chest,
and the jeans his thighs. Roarke didn’t speak, just
held out a cup of coffee. Niall took the cup, then
placed it on the entry table.
Niall grabbed the front of Roarke’s shirt and kissed
him. Roarke went stiff, then relaxed into the kiss.
Niall swept his tongue inside his mouth, learning the
taste of Roarke, who opened wide to accommodate his

moving his lower half against Roarke. Roarke’s groan
vibrated into his mouth as he shifted forward,
manhandling Niall’s body. Roarke lifted him in his
arms and Niall wrapped his legs around Roarke’s hips.
Absently, Niall heard the door slam as Roarke carried
him in the direction of the living room.
