Chapter Eleven


Kendra lifted up the last of the three baby squirrels and tucked it into the laundry basket filled with soft towels. Since no one else had volunteered to take the group home for the night, it looked like the job was up to her. She really didn’t mind. Taking care of the baby squirrels for the evening would keep her mind busy and off worrying about Flint and Jesse.

She’d been wondering all day about what was going on with Jesse’s court appearance and so far hadn’t heard anything. In the past few days, she’d learned one thing about Flint. He might not call and check in with her often, but if he said he’d call, he would.

“Dr. Shaw?” A volunteer poked her head into Kendra’s office. “There’s someone here to see you.”

“A client? I thought we were through with vet appointments for the day. I don’t see anyone else on my schedule.”

“No, not a client.” The young girl grinned like she had a big secret. “Maybe he’s a salesman. I don’t know. Trust me, you’ll want to make an exception and see this guy. Shall I send him in? Then I’ll need to head on home.”

Kendra rolled her eyes. “Sure. Why not? It’s not like I have anything else in the world to do except waste time with a copier salesman,” she muttered as the young girl hurried back out the door.

After checking the thermometer lying in the basket with the squirrels, she decided they might not be warm enough for the ride home. She grabbed a pink heat disc from the shelf to put under the towels and headed for the kitchen to stick it in the microwave. A knock on the door stopped her. The door swung open before she had a chance to call out.

Kendra turned around, expecting to see a slick-haired salesman in thick black glasses and carrying a briefcase. Instead, Flint stood in the doorway, wearing a pair of designer sunglasses and a twelve-hundred dollar suit.

Hot damn! He was sexy as hell, gorgeous, and all hers. Her tongue practically rolled out of her mouth.

“Hey, darling.”

His honeyed tone hit her right in the gut. Two words had never held such thick, unspoken promise. He stepped inside and kicked the door shut behind him. An electric current passed between them as their eyes met, primal and dangerous. His eyes traveled slowly over her ample curves.

Kendra flew across the room and threw herself into his arms. Fisting her long hair tight with one hand, he slammed her back against the wall, pinning her wrists above her with one hand and pressing his lips against hers in a hungry deep kiss. His muscled strength, the way he moved so quickly and precisely like a panther stalking his prey, thickened the haze of desire fogging her senses. His other hand slipped down to her thrust-out breasts in that dominating, possessive way that made her breathless and wet.

She drew away after a long moment, gasping for air. “Wow! What did I do to deserve that? Not that I’m complaining.”

“The judge dropped all charges,” he replied with a cocky grin. “Jesse’s already out of jail.”

“What? How?”

“I’ll tell you later. Right now I want my prize. Convincing the judge to drop the charges deserves a special reward, don’t you think?”

“If I’m your prize, then definitely,” Kendra said. She frantically tried to loosen his tie. “You didn’t happen to see my volunteer leave the building, did you?”

“Yep, I saw her get in her car and drive away.”

“Then it’s on, baby.”

She whipped the tie off and threw it onto the floor then went to work on the buttons of his shirt. She felt him yank down her scrub pants along with her white silk panties before cupping her ass with both hands and lifting her completely off the floor.

Kendra gave up on his shirt buttons and went straight for his belt and zipper. “We might mess up your expensive suit,” she muttered.

“Don’t worry,” he replied. “I don’t plan on wearing it again.”

He braced her back against the wall for support and wrapped her legs around his waist. Holding her tight with one arm, he brought out his cock from the gap in his zipper with the other. Kendra was panting, already soaking wet and ready. In one powerful thrust, he rammed deep inside her, driving her against the wall.

Kendra gasped and clung to his shoulders. He gripped her ass cheeks tightly in each hand and forcefully moved her up and down on his long length. Damn, he was so strong. She could feel the power pulsing through his arms, his hands.

“Fuck, Kendra!” he groaned, leaning down to nibble her earlobe. “You’re like a drug to me. The more I have, the more I need. I dream of your sweet, tight pussy every night then I wake up rock hard, aching with need and wanting you even more.”

Kendra closed her eyes and gave herself up to the sweet sensations of his cock plunging into her, deeper with every thrust. Flint held her with one arm and slid a hand under her shirt and bra to clutch her heaving breast with the other. He pinched and twisted her begging nipple, stretching the elongated tip until she cried out.

She moaned, flinging her head back.

He drilled into her again and again, holding her steady, forcing her to give herself over to his control completely. She felt helpless as he spread her ass cheeks even wider to allow deeper penetration.

Kendra clung to him desperately, reaching for her release. His thrusts became wilder, more primal as he grunted and drove into her faster and harder. Her pleasure was bordering on pain, but she didn’t care. Flint was animalistic and unrepentant, with every lunge ramming her against the sheetrock.

Flint knew she wanted it, loved it, and craved the wild power fuck as much as he did. He bent down to kiss her lips with such force, their teeth clashed. He never slowed down or eased up, grinding against her clit while inside her his cock stroked as rough and deep as physically possible.

“I can’t hold out much longer,” he gritted out between strokes, his breathing harsh. Reaching down, he rubbed her clit with his thumb, sending her over the edge. Waves of contractions racked her pussy, each one stronger than the last. She grabbed him tighter, her nails digging into his arms. When it was over, she went limp with bliss and exhaustion, with only his muscular tattooed arms holding her up.

“Fuck!” he cursed as he climaxed, his face intense and inches from hers. Kendra loved it when he lost control with no restraint, no limits. Just wild unleashed passion without boundaries or holds. He bit her neck as he convulsed into her.

It was a long time before their breathing slowed enough to move. Neither one of them wanted to be the first to break the mood by speaking. Finally, he backed over to the closest office chair and sat down, still cradling her in his arms.

“I’m a grand prize winner,” he said, nuzzling her hair.

“Have I ever told you how extremely sexy you are in a suit?” Kendra asked. She snuggled closer and ran a hand through his damp hair. “I can’t believe you didn’t have a million women after you when you were working in Atlanta.”

“No, I didn’t have time for that then.”

“And you do now?”

He hugged her closer. “I’ll make time.”

“So tell me how you managed to get Jesse out of jail.”

“Two things,” Flint answered. “My flair for dramatics in court and the fact that they didn’t have enough to charge him with in the first place. I convinced the judge that the DNA evidence found on the scene would clear Jesse anyway, so why waste time looking at the wrong guy? I’m not sure how much of it the judge bought, but he agreed the cell phone records weren’t enough for now to charge him. I’m sure the police officers will have a new asshole chewed by now.”

“Sam and the crew must be so happy and relieved about this.”

“They are,” he said emphatically. “And that’s why I’m here. To invite you to come over to the house after work tonight to celebrate. It will be only a few of us, not the big group that was there yesterday.”

Kendra frowned. “Darn it! I can’t! I have to babysit.”

Flint raised his eyebrows. “Kids?” He sounded a little horrified.

“No, not real children,” she explained. “Baby squirrels.” She pointed to the basket in the corner with the squirming babies. “They need to be fed often, so I can’t leave them alone that long.”

“So bring them with you. You can put them upstairs in my room where it will be quiet and feed them whenever you need to.”

“Alright then,” she said. “I’ll need to run home really quick and change clothes then I’ll be right over.”

Flint lifted the hair from her neck and trailed a line of kisses down to her shoulder. “Or we could just stay here all night. In your office.” His growing erection stirred against her hip.

“Are you insatiable?”

“Only where you’re concerned.”

“Later then,” Kendra teased. “I’m sure the crew are all dying to see you and celebrate, so you’d better get going.”

She slid off his lap and walked over to pick up her panties and scrub pants from the floor. She wriggled back into them then picked up his tie and tossed it to him. He caught it and stuffed it in his pocket before tucking himself back into his pants and zipping it up. He picked up his sunglasses where he’d dropped them on the table and slid them on.

“Don’t forget your squirrels,” he said with a grin on his way out.

Kendra sighed and snatched up the laundry basket. “I won’t.”
