“I won’t go easy on you just because I’ve seen you naked,” he whispered, pulling away just enough to allow her the satisfaction of finally managing to undo the zipper.

Using the ball of his foot, he managed to pull the legs down. When he released her to bend down and remove the garment from around his ankles, Jane pushed back and started to recline.

She opened her mouth, but he didn’t let her speak, instead he pressed his lips against hers. He’d thought being this close to her with clothes on was an amazing experience, but without anything between them, it was—wow! That was all he could come up with to describe the sensation of her soft, delicate skin pressed against his. Her tight nipples rubbed against his chest, a feeling that left him clinging to the edge of his self-control.

His limp was more pronounced than she expected, but she didn’t let her dismay show. The last thing he’d ever accept from her was pity. Each slow, uneven step he took tied her stomach in knots. Lines etched by months of pain and endurance became starkly visible as he approached, each one a startling contrast to his youth and vitality.

It seemed a lifetime passed before the toes of his boots scuffed hers. He stared at his hand as if it had seceded from the union, giving his head a bewildered shake as he raised it. Warmth and affection shot those gunmetal eyes through with silver. “You always were the damnedest girl.”

“I’ve never done anything like that before.”

He shook his head as they tumbled to the mattress in a flurry of arms and legs. “Neither have I, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t hope to do it again.”

Sofia blinked slowly as he rolled them onto their sides. “My favorite movie is Rear Window.

Laughter rumbled up from deep inside him. Brushing a stray lock of hair from her face, he shook his head in bewildered dismay even as he beamed at her. “Why am I not surprised?”

“Alec?”

“Hmm?”

“Are you going to come over here, or was there something more you wanted to see?”

“Huh?”

Sliding her finger under one strap, she slid it off her shoulder. “Would you like to touch, or are you going to stand there and watch?” She could see him wagging his head in helpless surrender.

“Well, that’s a helluva choice, now, isn’t it?”

Weekend Writing Warrior – 8/11/13

Today’s post comes for M is for Melting– my contribution to Love Letters Volume 4: Travel to Temptation (August 5th from Carina Press).

~~~~~

On impulse, she turned to face him, hoping to catch him unaware just once. But the small smile that curved his lips told her he knew exactly what she wanted. “Kiss me.”

The whispered command was all but swallowed by the sound of waves lapping at the sides of the boat, but Luca smiled as he obliged. He kissed her slow and sweet, exerting only enough pressure to let her know his feelings toward her were anything but gentlemanly, but proving he was the perfect specimen nonetheless when he broke the kiss seconds later.

“Do you like kissing me as much as you hoped?” He corralled a wayward strand of hair that clung to her damp lips and tucked it behind her ear. “Was it worth the trip, my Samantha?”

“Hello, my American girl-friend, Sam.”

She whirled in her seat but a rogue breeze tossed her hair into her eyes. Clawing it away, she zoomed in on the smiling man beside her table. This was no Cary Grant wannabe. No, Luca Camilleri was more of a George Clooney/Gerard Butler mix, without the gray hair or Scots burr, but with the smiling eyes and laugh lines fanning from the corners.

“Please tell me you are my good friend Sam and I’m not making a fool of myself in front of a beautiful woman.” His voice dropped to a hush. “Lie to me, if you must.”

Today’s post comes for J is for Jaded– my contribution to Love Letters Volume 3: Wicked Whispers (Available TOMORROW from Carina Press).

****

“But that’s not my only dirty little secret.”

She whispered the last directly into his ear. A shiver ran rampant down his spine. The tip of her tongue grazed the barbell in his ear. He gathered her closer, one hand splayed wide and greedy across her back, the other on her ass. She flicked the barbell with her wicked tongue and his dick surged, stretching up to take the freedom offered by his unbuttoned fly.

He tipped his head toward her, encouraging her to take as much as she wanted. “Tell me more dirty secrets.”

 
 LoveLettersVol3

Verbal foreplay goes a long way in these four steamy stories in Love Letters Volume 3: Wicked Whispers.

I Is for Indecent by Christina Thacher
Annie Forrest doesn’t think flirtatious Stefan Cox is seriously interested in her—until he starts describing what it will be like when they strip away their inhibitions and their clothes. But do they have anything in common besides their gift for dirty talk?

J Is for Jaded by Maggie Wells
Voice actress Julie Poplin secretly thinks about rocker-turned-sound-engineer Vaughan Hatch when she needs to make passion leap from the page while narrating a steamy audio book. But their recording session takes a seductive turn when she accidentally speaks Vaughan’s name instead of the hero’s…

K Is for Kick-Start by Ginny Glass

Author Sophie Maddox has a bad case of writer’s block and a distractingly handsome editor clamoring for her newest sexy romance. She’s tempted by Oliver’s offer to use his place to write—and even more tempted to act out scenes when a typo reveals she’s been using him as inspiration.

L Is for Lessons by Emily Cale
When Chloe turns to her friend Bethany for help earning some extra cash, she’s shocked to discover that Bethany is a phone sex operator…and is intrigued by her offer to teach Chloe the ropes. But neither of them is prepared for the unexpected desire their lesson unleashes.

Vaughan rocked back on his heels, letting his eyes travel leisurely over the naked woman towering over him. Drawing a bracing breath, he gave her one last chance at having the more her body so obviously craved.

“Tell me. Tell me the story of how much you want me and you can have the happy ending you want.”

She stared at him, doe-eyed and panicked.

“Say it. Say it out loud, and I’ll give you anything you want and more. But you have to say it, Julie.”
