Snippet Saturday – First Kiss

This time, I chose the scene where Nell Hunter and William Emery kiss for the first time in my novella, SENSUAL MAGIC from the What Happens in Vegas…After Dark Anthology. Don’t forget to look at the end of the excerpt for a llist of the authors participating today…

The excerpt has one or two bad words in it so I’m putting it behind a text jump.

Nell knew she’d gone too far when she saw the light in his eyes. He was enjoying their little interplay as much as she was.

He stood and she did as well, not knowing what he was up to. In quick work, he’d moved very close. She took a step back and then another and one more until her back was against the wall and he bracketed the front of her.

Her heart thundered as he moved so near she caught the flecks of gold in his eyes. His scent wrapped around her. She wasn’t afraid of him physically but a jolt of awareness shot through her. He was meant to be someone important to her. She simply knew it as much as she knew her PIN number or that it was warm or cold or whatever when she went outside.

Everything stilled for a moment. Fate. Not like she could tell him that without him flipping out or thinking she was nuts.

“Damn but you lure me,” he murmured softly before his lips touched hers.

Leaning his weight against her body, he held her in place with his body while he coaxed. Seduced. Tantalized with his mouth on hers and she opened to him. Her hands, which she’d had fisted in his lapels, slid up and around his neck. Nell wanted him so badly she had to lock her knees to keep them from trembling. How had it come to this so fast?

She’d expected him to be a different kind of kisser. She knew he’d had those lips on a variety of other women but he didn’t rush. He pulled her in slowly so that when he finally drew his tongue over her bottom lip all she could do was to groan and let him in.

Not that she regretted the choice. His tongue skillfully roamed into her mouth and darted out. He nipped her bottom lip once and then again.

With her heels, they stood nose to nose so he fit her perfectly—hard to soft. He rocked his hips, dragging the length of his cock over her pussy and she gasped when the head of him brushed against her clit.

She sucked his tongue, reveling in his taste. He wanted her so much she caught the flavor of his desire and it stoked hers.

His hands, which had been on either side of her waist on the wall, slid against her at last and she writhed at the energy of his touch.

He broke the kiss, breathing hard. She stared at him and licked her lips, wanting more of him. She caught the intake of his breath at the sight.

“Look, this can’t be…I’m not looking for anything permanent here.” His hands still roamed her waist and up and down the small of her back. “We should stop.”

Nell laughed, there was nothing else she could do with his cock pinning her to the wall like a butterfly in a case. Of course he wasn’t looking but they found each other nonetheless.

She slid her hand down into his pants and grabbed his cock, squeezing just so. “Yeah? So stop.” Letting go of him, she shoved him back and stayed leaning against the wall. If he thought he could walk away when Fate had other plans, he was wrong.

    I’m obviously way behind but I love that line–“Yeah? So stop.” Love, love it.
