"The Princess and The Bodyguard" is part of a trilogy about a royal family and a common middle class family who get involved. There's a light sprinkling of fantasy but mostly it's a contemporary romance. This scene occurs after the titular bodyguard has kissed the titular princess. The princess, Rachel, enjoyed the kiss, to say the least, but not what happened afterward. I think they need to have an honest talk.

That kiss had eaten away at Rachel all afternoon.    

Dinner had been nearly impossible to get through. She'd been painfully conscious of Peter sitting across the table from her, trying to act like he hadn't kissed her brains out that very afternoon.

All right, so she'd practically begged him to do it. But that had been no do-it-for-king-and-country kind of kiss he'd laid on her, either. His tongue had been down her throat, he's pulled her so tight against him that her nipples had stood at attention. She had caught the telltale sign of his erection, despite the excellent cut of his suit. 

And then the rat bastard had the nerve to apologize?  

Heh, I think that man is in trouble. :D
