The first kiss in Deadly Night, Silent Night between hero, Alex Kincaid and heroine, Rebecca Howard:

He moved into her personal space and combed his fingers through her hair. “That’s good advice. It’s not always easy to put yourself in His hands totally, but we are much stronger with Him on our side.”

“That’s what I’m discovering. I’ve seen how it’s changed Clint. If he could survive being a war captive and managing to escape from the enemy, then I can do this.” She punched the up button on the wall.

Alex leaned in and only meant to kiss her briefly like a friend, but once his mouth covered hers, he couldn’t resist her lure. He deepened the connection, pouring suppressed feelings of longing from his teenage years into it. He wrapped his arms around her and pressed her against him while leaving a trail of soft nibbles all the way to her ear.

The ding announcing the elevator had arrived penetrated his haze and jolted him from continuing what he should never have started. They were good friends. He didn’t want to change that, and he certainly didn’t want to be rejected by her a second time, although she never knew that.
