A drop of Hank‟s homemade ketchup dripped from the bun. She licked it off her lip with a small pink tongue. Alex opened his mouth to reply but was sidetracked by the sight of that little pink tongue. This was another aspect of Caitlin Summers that he‟d been trying to ignore, but that quick, mischievous grin, that tongue sneaking out to lick her luscious lips—making him think of her licking him—blindsided him. Alex kept sex and work strictly separate. Not that there had been that much sex lately to keep separate.
Determined to keep his eyes off her breasts—and her legs and her mouth and her eyes—and to be a good dinner companion, Alex cupped her elbow, forgetting completely that this was going to be a no-touching dinner. He‟d cupped her elbow a couple of times, but she‟d had a sweater or a jacket on. This time he was touching flesh. Delectable flesh…soft, smooth flesh… Alex shook his head again, trying to concentrate. He‟d planned on taking her to the Garden of Eatin‟, or to a family style Tex-Mex cantina he knew.

Alex had disappeared into his office and Caitlin had wandered around, getting a feel for the layout, chatting with the officers.
