The Athena Effect
By Derrolyn Anderson
The Athena Effect #1



He looked down at her, thinking he’d never seen anything so beautiful. He couldn’t stand it anymore, and he bent down to kiss her softly on the lips.

Her amazing eyes flew open wide with surprise, but she did not pull away, so he turned to wrap his arms around her, pulling her up against him. His kiss deepened, and then she was drowning in the sensation of his lips, his tongue, and his breath mingling with hers. She could see why all the other girls liked it so much.

He reached up to caress her cheek and rake his fingers through her hair, flooding her senses with the most delicious red she tasted. Her knees buckled, and he dropped his hands to her waist, steadying her and bringing her closer at the same time. When their lips finally parted they were both panting.

He pressed his cheek to hers, “Whoa,” he whispered into her ear.
