I’m participating in the Book Boyfriends Café HOT FOR FRIDAYS Weekly Blog Hop. This week’s prompt was “Our Characters Share A Hot Kiss.” Below is an excerpt from my book, Miriam’s Surrender.
He leaned his face toward her and she forgot to breathe. Would he kiss her? His irises darkened and focused on her mouth, as if there was nothing else worth looking at. This would not be another kiss on the cheek. His arm grasped hers and pulled her close. His hand cupped her elbow and his fingers stroked the back of her arm. Even through her coat, the pressure of his touch built and she wanted more of him. The movement of his fingers against her coat sleeve created a rasping noise, or was it the sound of her own breath?
She pressed against him and fought the urge to whimper. His body heat warmed her and her knees shook. This close to him, she could see the slight shadow of stubble forming on his jaw. She raised her hand and stroked his cheek. His skin was smooth, yet unlike her own. Her hand slid around the back of his neck and teased the soft hairs at his nape as he tipped her chin and brought his mouth to hers.
His lips pressed against hers. They were firm, yet soft and she wanted to taste him. He kissed her as if his entire purpose was to give her the perfect kiss. He nibbled her bottom lip and she opened her mouth. With the slight bit of encouragement, his tongue traced where he’d nibbled and dipped inside her mouth. Their tongues danced, their breaths mingled and she tasted traces of vanilla from his shake.
His hands slid down her arms and rested at her waist and she melted against him. He traced little circles with his thumbs and tingles ran up her spine. She played with the soft down at the base of his skull and fingered the hollow at the back of his neck. She flicked his ear and he groaned. Desire coursed through her and she reveled in her power to make him moan. Their noses touched and he reached behind for her hand and held it in his. He was warm and masculine and she wanted him. She inhaled and smelled his spicy aftershave.
He pulled away and traced kisses along her jaw. She shivered and licked his neck. It tasted salty and his pulse beat beneath her mouth. He hugged her tight against him and she slipped her arms inside of his coat and around his waist. Their bodies were so close it was as if they were one. Still, she wanted to be closer.
She tipped her head to the side to give him better access to her neck and his whiskers scraped the sensitive skin behind her ear. She whimpered and he trailed kisses from right below her ear to her jawline. When he pulled away, his breathing was heavy and matched her own.
Their gazes met and she smiled.
“How do you feel?” he asked and rested his head against hers.
“Like I have been thoroughly kissed.”
“That’s funny, I feel the same way.”
“What a coincidence,” she said with a smile.
