Excerpt
I leaned forward and pulled his head down to meet mine. I kissed him again. I needed to. I needed to feel that he was real. Each time he went away, and my memories changed, it felt like I lost a part of him. In losing him, I was losing part of me. He was everything I ever wanted. It was scary to feel that way about one person, but it was true. Even Logan and our past couldn't compare with the feelings floating around inside me at just the touch of Seth's lips to mine. He was everything I needed.

"And you?" he asked as he pulled back a little.

"Me what?" I asked, looking up into his eyes. The desire I saw there was surely mirrored in my own.

"How long has it been in your time?" Seth asked as he eyed me over, looking for any change in me.

"Five weeks," I replied, watching his eyes roam over my body. When most men looked at you like that it was creepy, but the way he looked made my stomach tumble.

"And Ty was with you there?" Seth asked, finally bringing his eyes up to mine.

"Yes," I answered, looking up at him. Did he really want to just talk after all this time apart?

"But he didn't come with you," Seth replied to my answer.

He balanced on the wall with only one hand, allowing his free hand to reach up and touch my face. I closed my eyes and tried to memorize his touch. No matter how I was with him now, it would never last I had a feeling we would always have to fight to be together.

"No," I responded, feeling his body press up against me. His lips met mine again, and I rested my hands on his bare chest. There were a few perks to the Egyptian military clothing, or rather lack of clothing.

"Why," Seth began as he moved his kisses to my ear. "Are." He kissed down my neck, sending tingles to my toes. "You." He reached the indent where my neck and shoulder met. "Here?"

He finished asking his question, but the kisses continued as he pushed the fabric of the multiple tunics I wore out of the way to continue kissing down a line. He began moving back up my neck slowly as he waited for a response, but I was having trouble even remembering the question. It was hard to carry on a conversation when we couldn't keep ourselves apart.
