she now?”
    “She’s old lady to one of our California charter’s members. She’s protected.”
    I settled my chin in my hand. “How does the old lady thing work?”
    “Lookin’ to be one?”
    “Ah, no, I don’t think so.” I wrinkled my nose and sat up a bit. “It’s a horrible title.”
    Austin dropped his head back and laughed. “It’s a title of honor, babe.”
    “How is calling a woman ‘old’ a title of honor?”
    He tugged on my hand, lifting it to his mouth and kissing my palm. “It just is.”
    “If you say so.”
    He released my hand and pulled his cell phone from his pocket. “Yo,” he said as he answered it.
    So much for my “doesn’t talk like a thug” theory.
    Austin glanced at me and then frowned. “Yeah I’m here. Shit, are you serious? Tell the little fucker it’s not gonna happen. No, Mack, it’s not a fuckin’ option.” He rose to his feet and stepped outside. I was left sitting on my couch in the same position I’d been in for the last fifteen minutes and wondering what the heck was going on.

    I UNWOUND MYSELF from my seat and made my way to the kitchen. I was starving, but hadn’t made it to the store due to my lack of a car situation, so I didn’t have much in the way of food. It was just past six, so ordering a pizza was probably my best option. More of a hit to my bottom line, but now that the pressure of was off with the car repairs, I figured I could splurge a little. Don’t get me wrong, I fully intended to pay Austin back; I just had to save a little first.
    Grabbing my laptop, I powered it up and pulled up the pizza delivery menu. Two pizzas for under fifteen bucks suited me perfectly and the leftovers would last a while, but before I could hit the order key, Austin walked back in.
    “Everything okay?” I asked.
    He nodded. “Club business.”
    “Which means, it’s none of mine, right?”
    “I’m starving,” he said without acknowledging my question. “You hungry?”
    “I was just going to order pizza.” I focused back on the screen. “My cupboards are bare, I’m afraid, so I’ve got nothing to cook.” I glanced up at him. “Do you want to stay?”
    He chuckled. “Did you think I was leaving?”
    I shrugged. “You didn’t say either way, so I’m flying blind here.”
    He sat next to me on the sofa again. “Pepperoni would be good.”
    “Okey dokey.” I put the order in and then set my computer on the coffee table. “Want another beer?”
    “In a minute.” He pulled me onto his lap again and kissed me.
    I was so unprepared for his ability to throw me around like I weighed next to nothing; I had to grab his shoulders to keep from falling off of him. He shifted me under him, stretching out beside me never once releasing my mouth as he stroked my neck, moving his hand to cup my bottom.
    I felt my nipples tighten and my breasts grow heavy with desire as he deepened his kiss. What he could do with his mouth was surely illegal somewhere in the world and I found myself weaving my fingers into his hair. Crap… even his hair was sexy.
    Austin broke the kiss and dropped his forehead to mine. “Fuck me, you can kiss.”
    I licked my lips and took a deep breath. “Back atya.”
    He rubbed his nose against mine and smiled. “I had planned to take this a lot slower.”
    “Well, I hadn’t planned you’d take it anywhere at all, so I guess that makes us kind of even.”
    “We’re gonna make this work, babe. You’ll see.”
    “You don’t even know me,” I argued. “You seem awfully sure.”
    “When I see something I want, I don’t hesitate to make it mine, Dani.” He ran his finger across my collar bone. “It’s good you get that now. It’ll cut down on any confusion later.”
    “So you’ve seen me, you want me, and I’m to be another conquest?” I challenged, pushing at his shoulders.
    “I don’t do conquests, babe.” Austin smiled, holding me tighter and leaning down to kiss my nose. “But I will do
