This week I'm sharing from my current WIP, Man of Her Dreams, book one of my Welcome to Ravenwood Series. The series is about a small town west of Chicago filled with feisty heroines and the men who fall in love with them.
He walked her back against the wall, tangled their fingers together and stretched both their hands over her head, leaning in until the full length of his body pressed against hers. Palm to palm, chest to chest and thigh to thigh, heat seared through her body.
She broke the kiss and gasped for breath. When had her legs become noodles? If it weren’t for Jared holding her upright, she’d have slithered to the floor and laid there until her bones hardened. He shifted slightly, released their hands and brought her wrists together. She shivered and bit her lip when he lightly trailed a finger down her arm.
She moaned with an unfamiliar need, every nerve ending in her body anticipating his touch. His hand continued its lazy exploration until it snaked around her waist. She arched closer and muttered something like ‘yes, please, but wasn’t sure. Against her skin, just below her ear, she felt him smile and whimpered when he gently suckled, pulling the tender flesh into his mouth.
Thanks for reading. Make sure you check out all my fellow Weekend Writing Warriors.
That is incredibly visual writing. It was easy to see the scene-- the body movements while reading it. Good excerpt!ReplyDelete
I didn't see any other wewriwa posts on your blog, so I'm guessing you're new to wewriwa. We're glad to have you!
I'm one of the moderators here, so it's my job to check posts as well as reading and enjoying them. One of the things we check is the number of sentences--I counted 11 on your excerpt. About a month ago we changed our moderation policy. We now delete links from the linky list when participants go over 10 sentences. But since you're new and might not realize that, I didn't delete your link. I didn't want you to miss out on visits from other participants--and the opportunity to see what a nice group of writers wewriwa is.
Welcome to the Warriors :-)
You know, I counted that darn thing at least three times... and didn't run out of fingers. Obviously I failed at math, but passed English.Delete
Next week I will make SURE I don't exceed the limit.
Thank you for not deleting me :)
Welcome to Wewriwa Sue. Hot, hot make out scene here. I enjoyed your snippet this week and hope to read moreReplyDelete
Romantically hot scene going on here! Great snippet and welcome to the Warriors!ReplyDelete
Great sexual tension, Sue! Smooth and sensual with sizzle.ReplyDelete
He certainly has an effect on her. Wow.ReplyDelete
Thank you, all. I love the sexual tension between my couple. Even though I am writing a 'clean' contemporary romance, you don't go through life without having a physical attraction to the one you love.ReplyDelete
A powerfully visual scene here, Susan. You definitely show that passion and interest don't have to be explicit.ReplyDelete
Thank you. I know my hubby gave me tingles before we were married... *wink*Delete
