Jessi had curled into his arms, pulling his discarded flannel shirt over her. She lay relaxed and warm and sated against him. Flesh to flesh. Body to body. And he couldn't deny that it had been incredible. The best sex he'd ever had in his life.

And it had also been, he realized, the biggest mistake.

Lash relived the experience, knowing the precise moment when he should have stopped. He should be horsewhipped. He wouldn't blame her brothers for lynching him now. He wouldn't blame them a bit.

He stared down at the scarlet proof of what he should have known all along, staining the pale pink satin of Jessi's crumpled robe. The pink of a tea rose. The pink of innocence.

"You should have told me," he said, and his voice was strained.

She snuggled closer to his side, tugging at him as if she wanted him to lie down again. "Told you what?"

"Dammit, Jessi, you were… I was…"

"You were my first," she said, and she smiled up at him. It was a sleepy, sexy smile in the too-bright light of the single bare bulb. "And if you'd get back down here with me, you could be my second … and my third and m—"

"Dammit," he muttered again, and this time he eased himself out of her embrace and got to his feet. He pulled his jeans on hurriedly, while she looked on, her doe eyes round and hurting. Of course she was hurting. He was a bastard.

He averted his eyes and paced the barren garage in broad strides, sweeping his hand through his hair. "I never would have … if I'd known … we shouldn't…"

She sat up, tilting her head to one side. "Don't tell me you thought I was in the habit of—" she glanced down at the robe, the dirty floor, her fallen teddy "—of this."

"Well, hell, Jess, you were too good at it to be an amateur. I didn't stand a chance, once you set your mind to—" He bit off the rest when he met her gaze by accident and saw fresh pain flash in her eyes. But it vanished fast.

Chased away by anger.

"Forgive me," she said. "I kinda got the idea that you were willing."

"You know damn well what I meant. I didn't want this… I mean, I did, but I wouldn't have … not if you'd left me the hell alone when I told you to. Damn, Jessi, what the hell am I supposed to do now?"

She got slowly to her feet, pulling his shirtsleeves over her arms, jerking it closed in the front. "You can always have me arrested," she snapped. "Charge me with rape, seeing as how I gave you no choice and ignored you a while ago when you were screaming no. Hell, you probably have a good case, right? So you decide, Lash. Meanwhile, why don't you get the hell out of my garage, off my property and out of my life."

"Gladly." He snatched up his boots, put them on haphazardly and fled.
