This being the 2nd Monday of the month, it's my turn to host My Town Monday over at the official site. That means normally you'd find a post about Amarillo or the Texas Panhandle here, but this is no ordinary Monday. No, it is Valentines Day.
And in honor of Cupids arrival a group of bloggers have created the Just Kiss Already Blogfest.
I have decided to join in with a kissing scene from my short story Plundered Booty, which will soon be available in an e-book anthology titled ... DEADLY BY THE DOZEN: 12 Short Stories of Murder and Mayhem
That body, those clothes, her confident demeanor. They should have been my warning sign, Dangerous Curve Ahead. But those lips … the slow way they parted … the painted red curves … the sultry tone of the words passing through them … the warmth of her breath on my neck. Yes, she was that close. Those lips made me hit the gas. They made me go in too fast. They made me plummet off the edge.
I wanted to say the heck with warning her. I wanted to taste her lips. Hell, I just plain wanted her.
But I never got what I wanted, so I sure didn’t expect what came next.
Focusing solely on her big round eyes I said, “This job isn’t what you think. Junior has plans for you.”
Eva’s smile lured my attention back to those lips. “Men always have plans for me. At least Junior doesn’t make any bones about the nature of his plans.”
Her fingertips caressed my forearm in the exact spot where Fiona had touched me.
“It’s the men who keep their desires buried I worry about.” Her fingers crawled up my bicep. “You never know.” She caressed my neck. “When.” I swallowed hard as she traced my lips with her long nails. “They will lose control.”
My heart hammered in my chest.
“And take what they want.” She kissed me long and slow.
