This week, I'm posting from my current WIP (Work in Progress) CAROLINE. This is a Jane Austen Fan Fiction (JAFF) piece and is a continuation of Jane Austen's, Pride & Prejudice. It started with my muse asking me, 'whatever happened to Caroline Bingley after her brother and unrequited love interest married the Bennet sisters?' - and the story grew from there.
Without further ado - here is my excerpt.

He was inexplicably drawn to the shape of her lips. He wanted to lose himself in their silken texture and know beyond a shadow of a doubt that her attention was solely on him. Without thought he brushed his lips against hers, drawing her full bottom lip between his teeth, savouring the flavor of mint candy on her breath.

Her soft mewl of surprise didn’t stop him. His mouth slanted over hers, urging her lips apart. Hesitantly, she complied and he deepened the kiss, revelling in the tremor that quaked through her body. The fact that they were in the stables of his benefactor never once crossed his mind. Not until the whinny of a nearby horse pierced the haze of desire that clouded his reasoning. Caroline must have heard it too because she broke away from their kiss, covering those well-kissed lips with her fingertips.
     What had he been thinking?

  1. Delicious and so well written right in the times. Beautiful!

  2. Wow. I'm going to have to re-think Caroline Bingley. Perhaps, as Rhett Butler remarked to Scarlett O'Hara, all she needed was to be kissed and often by someone who knew how! LOL Looking forward to more!

  3. You have a style i can't mimic - i'm too straightlaced. It reads great.

  4. Well quite the moment indeed! I'd never have suspected it of her, so well done on your part...Happy New Year!

  5. Tantalizing scene. Too bad they were interrupted. :)

  6. Mmmm... I really like Nathan - but then I always like my heroes. All of them become my book boyfriend. shhh.... don't tell Top Gun ;)

  7. What had he been thinking? Clearly he'd been feeling instead of thinking.
