“A tramp stamp?” she repeated like an idiot, her heart starting to pound. Why was he looking at her like that? He looked predatory. He hadn’t moved an inch, but it felt menacing. He didn’t look angry, but there was something about the way he was watching her. She felt like a mouse trapped by a very large cat.

“A tattoo across the lower back.” His voice was soft, his smile wicked as he raised his brows in question. “Would you like one?”

“I don’t get it,” she said realizing how dangerous Jeremy looked, how much larger he was than her, how much stronger.

“Really? I do. You’re snooping around in my locked closet.”

“Is that a problem?” she asked, swallowing. “Are we keeping secrets?”

His eyes never wavered from her.
“I was.”
