Welcome to Hot for Fridays.
Today, I’m sharing a kissing scene from my novel, Stolen Hearts Book 1 – Contemporary Romance Suspense
He reached out and hooked his fingers in her hair. “Paul could return at any moment and I’ve wanted to feel your lips for weeks.” Not waiting for a response, he brushed his mouth across hers. Light. Gentle. Asking. When she sighed against his mouth, he pulled her to him until she fell across his torso.
Her lips tasted of cherries and vanilla. God, she felt good in his arms. His tongue swept across her bottom lip, seeking an invitation. When she gave it, he growled and deepened the kiss. Their lips and tongues grew more insistent. He wanted to feel her skin beneath his hands. To kiss every inch and memorize her body. His hand cradled her to him and he swept a hand up to her breast. Lace. Nice. She was full in his hands and he fought the urge to strip their clothes off and— The door to his room creaked open and Crystal jumped off him as if he were a hot stove.
Her favorite childhood memories revolved around creating vibrant characters for her friends, and then acting out their adventures. Inside her fantasy worlds of darkened forests, dragon-filled glades, and iced islands, nothing was banned. From the ethereal Elvin to the most maligned Vampires, all were welcome in her fictional realities, a stark contrast to her home, where the magical and mythical was forbidden.
Divorced and disillusioned of love and believing all the love songs and books exaggerated, she put aside her creativity for life. Many years past before characters, from the familiar to the freshly conceived, came to her again, but this time teasing at a new passion, the written word.
Gradually, her real life hero brought love and magic back into existence. During the time when her characters were getting reacquainted, the love of her life was showing her that true love never gives up and rekindles no matter how many times others attempt to extinguish it. Today, she is happily married with three children.
Andrea believes in the power of change and delighting in each moment. But most fervently, she believes in the magic of love and imagination again.
