Luis picked Sheridan up and carried her inside their honeymoon
suite. Thanks to Ethan loaning them the Crane jet, he had been able to keep their honeymoon location a secret
from Sheridan. Once they landed he'd made her wear a blindfold so she would have no idea where he'd taken her.
She could find that out tomorrow. Tonight, he had something else planned.
"Luis, where are we?" Sheridan asked as he set her down and shut the door. "Can I take this blindfold
He chuckled. She was so impatient. "Not yet, sweetheart. There is one more thing I have to do first."
Sheridan could hear him walking around the room. She wished she could see what he was doing. She heard a click
and knew he had opened a door. Then she heard a pop. Champagne, she wondered? "You can take it off now."
Sheridan didn't have to be told twice. She pulled the blindfold off and gasped in surprise. He had taken her
to paradise. White candles were scattered throughout the room. Pink, yellow, and red rose petals covered the floor
and the bed. The white see-through curtains surrounding the balcony floated in the gentle breeze, and standing
in the middle of it all was the man she loved with all of her heart, holding a single red rose. Tears rushed
to her eyes as she looked at him. "It's beautiful, Luis."
"It doesn't come close to you." He said as he started walking toward her. He'd already shed his tuxedo
jacket and bow tie. His white tuxedo shirt was unbuttoned at the collar and exposed some of his chest. Her fingers
itched to touch him. Luis stopped less than an inch in front of her, and handed her the rose. "I have never
seen you look more beautiful than you do right now."
"Oh Luis." She said taking the rose and pulling it to her nose. She inhaled the soft, sweet fragrance
then glanced at Luis. Desire gleamed in his deep brown eyes. She smiled seductively and trailed the rose down
his chest. He responded immediately by grabbing the rose out of her hand and placing it on the table beside
them. Then he took her by the hands and led her to the bed.
Sheridan shivered in anticipation as Luis gently turned her around and started unbuttoning her gown. Each time
he undid a button he kissed her newly exposed skin. Finally, after all the buttons were undone, he slid her dress
off her shoulders and let it slide to the floor. Then he trailed kisses across her back and neck.
After a few more torturous minutes, Luis turned her around to face him and raked his gaze over her exposed breasts.
The look in his eyes made her feel as if she were the most beautiful woman in the world.
"Now it's your turn." She said in a voice she barely recognized. Never taking her eyes from his, Sheridan
placed her hands at the first button on his shirt and smiled as she released it . Then she moved onto the next
one. Once all the buttons were undone, she slid her hands up his bare chest and pushed his shirt back off his
shoulders. It slid to the floor beside her dress. Then she placed her hands at the waist band of his pants.
She slid the button free, but before she had time to lower the zipper, Luis grabbed her and gently pushed her back
onto the bed. Then he did what she had been waiting for, he covered her body with his.
The man smiled as the honeymooners drifted off to sleep
wrapped in each others arms. He couldn't remember ever seeing a couple more in love. He didn't like this new
assignment, but since he had been paid in advance, he had no choice but to complete it. Too bad, he thought as
he stared at the sleeping couple, that tomorrow they would have to learn what Til Death Do Us Part really meant.
Luis woke in the middle of the night in a cold sweat. He wasn't sure what exactly woke him, but his cop instinct
told him it wasn't good. He glanced at Sheridan and saw that she was still sound asleep. Her lips were parted
in a soft oh and he couldn't resist leaning in for a soft kiss But before he could pull back, Sheridan wrapped
her arms around him and deepened the kiss. He totally forgot the reason he awoke as he lost himself in her once
