Cathal was letting Marcie lead this at whichever speed she liked, but he couldn't pretend he wasn't thrilled that she was so into it.
It hadn't just been because she was drunk and feeling swept away by the moment! They'd had dinner together and talked and now she'd come back to his home and wanted him. Cathal's last girlfriend had been four years ago, and since then there had only been a single one night stand (that Cathal had hoped would turn into something more, but it never did.) So to have some gorgeous woman now in his arms, kissing him, making (more than just) suggestions of what they should do next... that was almost as much of a turn on as Marcie's warm body against his, and he made a small sound of pleasure against her mouth.
When he broke the kiss it was only so he could kiss her throat instead, the desire to do so almost overwhelming. She smelled amazing and against her throat her whispered, "you're so beautiful."
