RELEASE BLAST ~ Pure Torture by Tania Sparks ~ #giveaway

After all, no one else needs to know…

 

PURE TORTURE
Oblivion on Tour #3
Tania Sparks
Releasing July 29th, 2016
Cody’s the sexy drummer
extraordinaire of the hard rock band Oblivion.
Kitty’s the little sister of one of
Cody’s band mates and she’s had a secret crush on him for years.
When the band are back home for a
few days, the chemistry between them is both unexpected and undeniably
off-the-charts.
She quickly realizes that the
prospect of having what she’s always fantasized about is a very real
possibility.
He quickly realizes that although he
feels this mind-blowing attraction towards her, she’s the little sister of one
of his band mates – he would get his ass kicked from here to hell if he ever
laid a finger on her!

But can Kitty convince him? After
all, no one else needs to know, a one-time hook-up might suit both of them…or
could it ruin everything?

EXCERPT

We’re all sitting around, drinking our beers. I’m slouched down on one of the armchairs that I’ve claimed as my own. I’m still twirling my drumsticks and tapping away on my legs and the surrounding furniture. I’m a couple or three beers in when I hear the door to the suite open. I glance across to see Nikki, our rhythm guitarist and his girl Trixie strolling in jovially, Nikki’s arm is draped over her shoulder and she’s securely tucked into his side.

I lift my head and somberly greet them, “Hey.”

Nikki bobs his head in acknowledgement and Trixie waves her hand to say hi. I expect them to close the door but instead the most stunning girl on the fucking planet glides in behind them. She has smooth jet black hair that flows down her back and it’s so long it reaches her ass. She’s tall, probably almost as tall as me and her body rocks. She’s slim, but has nicely rounded hips and amazing tits. Her emerald green eyes are sparkling boldly as she scans the room confidently. I immediately jump up from my chair, drop my drumsticks to the floor and feel an undeniable rousing in my pants. Hell, maybe my day won’t be so bad after all. I feel better already!

The other guys all stand up too. Fuck off cock-suckers, she’s mine.

I take a step forward as the raven haired beauty suddenly shrieks in an oddly familiar voice, “Oh my god, hi guys, I’ve missed y’all so much!”

Fuck, fuck, fuck! My muddled brain suddenly clicks and makes the connection as I realize that the hottie that has my body vibrating like a god-damned amplifier is Kitty, Nikki’s little sister. Holy Crap! Somebody turns the music down and everyone starts walking towards Kitty. My heart is beating so damned loud that I’m sure the whole room can hear it.

What the hell happened to Nikki’s little sister? I remember her as being a sweet little girl that we used to tease and let hang around the band. She’d bring us beers and dote over all of us, but especially me. Sure, she’s always been pretty and downright cute, but I’ve never thought of her as the unmistakable sex kitten she is now. She’s definitely grown up and she’s a complete and utter babe. She’s the perfect embodiment of everything I find totally irresistible in a chick. I want!

Shit, maybe I’ve had more to drink than I thought, but I definitely shouldn’t be thinking this way about Nikki’s little sister and I don’t know how to handle these sudden irrefutable cravings. My hand twitches and strums anxiously on my leg as the adrenaline courses through me and makes me want to jump around like a fuckin’ crazy person.

RELEASE BLAST ~ The Family Man by Kelly Eadon

 

THE FAMILY MAN 
Kelly Eadon
Releasing July 5th, 2016
Forever
TEMPTATION
NEVER TASTED SO SWEET…
 
When life hands lemons to Beth
Beverley, she makes mouthwatering lemon squares. Mostly because they’re coveted
by the sexy single dad who owns Belmont’s most popular coffee shop. But that’s
where her crush on Griffin has to end. Her sweet treats are selling like crazy
cakes in his shop, and she doesn’t mix business with pleasure. Too bad his
sinful smile has her flirting with the idea of forever.
Griffin Hall definitely needs to
keep his eyes–and his hands–off Beth. Since he’s traded in late-night gigs
and partying for bedtime stories with his little girl in his arms, he doesn’t
have time for anything else. So why does Beth’s big heart and easy way with his
daughter make him finally feel alive again? But there’s a little secret Beth
doesn’t know, something he can’t bear to tell her . . .

EXCERPT

He lifted a few containers out of a picnic basket and opened them on the blanket. “But you remind me of this town in Italy. I know that seems like a weird thing to say, that you remind me of a town. But it’s full of all these paths that take you to completely unexpected places. Everywhere you turn, someone is trying to feed you. Everyone smiles all the time, and they have a little street theater with puppets that the kids gather around to watch.”

He lifted his eyes to her and grinned. “If you were a place, Beth, you would be this place. We played a concert in a city nearby, but we had a day off and I explored the town by myself. The whole time I kept thinking how great it would be to share it with someone. The other night it came to me: I had to have lunch with you in Urbino.”

Her breath caught. Wow.

He gestured to the food he’d laid out on the blanket. Olives, figs, cheese, bread, dried fruit. Her mouth watered just looking at it. “So here you go. Lunch in Urbino.”

Her eyes stung and she blinked hard. This could not be happening. This could not be real.

“Wow.”

The corners of his mouth dropped and his eyebrows furrowed. “Do you like it?” He dropped his gaze to his lap, where his hands fidgeted. “Is it too much?”

She threw herself at him, covering his face with kisses, not caring if she knocked anything over. “It’s the most incredible thing anyone has ever done for me.”

His fingers closed around her waist and he tugged her into his lap. He pressed his mouth to hers and used the tip of his tongue to trace the seam of her lips.

A high-pitched whistle pierced the air. She raised her head and found a group of teenage boys giving them the thumbs-up.

Her face heated and she crawled back to her spot on the other side of the blanket.

She reached for the container of olives and spooned a few onto her plate. “I feel like I should warn you that dessert is entirely off-theme.”

He raised an eyebrow and popped a fig into his mouth. “Oh yeah?”

She nodded. “Oh yeah.”

Then she reached for the plastic bag in her purse and plopped it onto the blanket, so that one of the cookies was faceup inside the package.

He leaned toward it, his eyes narrowing. “What kind of cookie is that?”

She’d iced them pink and then used magenta piping to create little curlicues. “Pig butt.”

His gaze jerked to hers and he blinked a few times. “A pig butt cookie?”

The tickle in her throat became too much, she burst into giggles. “Just the decoration, not the flavoring. I found them on Pinterest. Nailed it, right?”

He threw his head back and laughed. “Yup. You nailed it. That is most definitely a pig’s ass. Martha Stewart, the person not the van, would be impressed.”

With a giggle, she tipped her head back to let the sunshine warm her face.

It was as near to perfect as a date could be.

RELEASE BLAST ~ A Summer to Remember by Marilyn Pappano ~ #giveaway

FIRST
LOVE NEVER FADES . . . 




 

A SUMMER TO REMEMBER
Tallgrass Series #6
Marilyn Pappano
Releasing June 28th, 2016
Forever
FIRST
LOVE NEVER FADES . . . 




It’s
been a long time since widow Fia Thomas felt the spark of physical attraction.
But from the moment she meets Elliot Ross one stormy night, she yearns for a
fresh start, for him to make her feel whole and well again. With his broad
shoulders and a warm smile crinkling his dark eyes, he could finally offer her
the solace she’s been seeking. And she’s willing to give him anything in return
. . . except a promise that could break his heart.




Now
that Elliot is out of the Army, he’s looking for a place to call home.
Tallgrass was just a stop to stretch his legs, yet one look at Fia halts him in
his tracks. In her sweet, sassy company, he finds the soul mate he never
thought he’d have. But Fia is holding something back-something that keeps her
from making any plans. Elliot’s new mission: gain Fia’s trust…and convince
her that summer’s end can mean a new beginning.

EXCERPT

 

 “Go on. Sing more.”

He did, and she listened with her eyes half closed. The tones were sweet, the emotion fierce, the quality hands-down better than the singer on the radio. Everything she learned about Elliot was adding up to an extraordinary man.

While she remained plain, average Fia. With “issues.”

“Beautiful,” she responded when the song ended. At about the same time, he turned into her driveway.

He came around and held hands with her to the stoop and up the steps, where he propped open the storm door with his boot while she unlocked the door. She set her purse on the floor inside the door, then faced him. “I’m not going to invite you inside because you’ve got to get up early.”

“Darn.” He moved a step closer, fitted his hands to her waist, and leaned toward her. She met him in the kiss, her mouth parting, her hands sliding around to the back of his neck, combing through his silky hair. Dear Lord, she’d forgotten how good a kiss could be. She nibbled at his lip, pausing only when his tongue thrust between her teeth, invading, exploring, rousing a long-unsatisfied need deep inside. Moving intuitively, her hands glided over soft cotton that covered the lean muscles along his spine. When they reached the rougher texture of jeans and leather belt, the tips tingled, like the briefest touch of a live wire, singeing and searing and sparking pleasure through her body.

When she stroked a few inches lower to slide her palm over his erection, his breath caught, and so did hers. It had been so very long . . .would be so very easy . . . back up one step, don’t let go, take him to the bedroom or, better, the couch, strip off their clothes . . .So easy. So perfect. So wrong.

Even the thought of that last word was wrong. It jangled in the midst of nerves humming with need. It pulled her out of the haze of what she could do, of the incredible satisfaction she could have, and brought back all the ugly uncertainty of her life. Elliot might be Prince Charming, but she was no princess, and her life was no simple, sweet fairy tale with a happily ever after.

Tears seeped into her eyes—disappointment, weariness—and she opened her eyes to blink them away. Apparently sensing the change in her, Elliot ended the kiss with another tiny, sweeter kiss, then clasped her hands in his. For a long time, he studied her face with an intensity that rippled along her skin, then he took a step back, putting breathing room between them.

When he spoke, he sounded as if he’d done a long hump with a heavy ruck on a hot day. “You never did tell me.”

“What?”

“Is Fia short for something?”

“You never did ask.” She didn’t sound much better. “Sofia.”

He laid his palm gently against her cheek, repeated her name, then backed away even farther. “Thank you, Sofia.”

“For what?”

“Being in that parking lot Friday night. For liking me and my dog. For kissing like—” Breaking off, he grinned and shook his head. “Damn.”

“It takes two.”

His grin strengthened, then slowly faded. “Good night.”

Leaning against the door jamb, she watched him go to his truck, get in, and drive away with a final wave. Sighing deeply, she stepped inside the house, closed and locked the door, and stumbled, hitting the floor with a solid thud.

BOOK BLITZ ~ Bad Boys After Dark : Mick by Melissa Foster ~ #giveaway

Indulge your inner vixen…

 

BAD BOYS AFTER DARK: MICK
Bad Boys After Dark #1
Melissa Foster
Releasing June 22nd, 2016
World Literary Press

 

 
Indulge your inner vixen…
 
Meet
the Bad Boys… 
Four sinfully sexy, fiercely loyal, uber
alpha brothers about to fall head over heels for their leading ladies. If dirty
talk, cursing, or raw, passionate sex turns you off, the After Dark books are
not for you, because everything’s naughtier after dark.
***
Amanda
Jenner is done being a boring-man magnet and has finally taken control of her
love life. As any smart paralegal would, she’s researched the hell out of how
to seduce a man. She’s waxed, primped, and ready to put her newfound skills
into action—and a masquerade bar crawl is the perfect venue for her solo
coming-out party.
Entertainment
attorney Mick Bad lives by two hard and fast rules. He never mixes
business with pleasure, and he doesn’t do relationships, which
makes the anonymity of a masquerade bar crawl the perfect place for a onetime
hookup.
Amanda
thinks she’s hit the jackpot when she bags a tall, dark, and sinfully
delicious masked man—until she discovers the man she’s made out with is her
off-limits boss. Mick’s already crossed a line he can never uncross, and one
taste of sweet and sexy Amanda has only whet his appetite. When Mick offers to
give Amanda a lesson in seduction—no strings, no regrets, and for goodness’
sake, come Monday, no quitting
—the tables turn, and Mick’s totally
unprepared for the lessons this sweet temptress provides.

EXCERPT

LURED BY THE pulse of sex and anonymity, Amanda Jenner moved through the dusky bar, brushing against silk, satin, cotton, and flesh, each graze feeding the adrenaline coursing through her veins. Blue lights misted over sweaty strangers lost in the seductive bump and grind of foreplay and hoping for a night of erotic pleasure. If Amanda tried hard enough, she could smell tomorrow’s scent du jour—regret. Tonight she had no room for the confidence-crushing worry of what tomorrow would bring. She scanned the crowd, as she had in the previous three bars, immediately dismissing anyone who wasn’t in costume. Her world was full of boring men who excelled at wining, dining, and boring her to sleep. Ten years of romance novels and movies had led her astray, sending her on a search for the elusive needle in a haystack. She’d led herself astray, always the careful thinker, careful dresser. Or as her younger sister, Ally, would say, Careful kisser, careful lover. Ally, however, had taken charge of her sex life—and she’d found the perfect man.

Now it’s my turn.

What to Read Wednesday with Jennifer Shirk author of From Fake to Forever ~ #giveaway

I’m so glad you dropped in for another round of What to Read Wednesday! I’m excited to have author Jennifer Shirk visiting. I enjoy her writing and if you haven’t sampled one of her books you definitely need to. Today she’s talking about her latest release FROM FAKE TO FOREVER. I think after you read her post you’ll want to click right on over to Amazon or Barnes and Noble and grab your copy. This sounds like a fun and funny read.

After you check everything out, don’t forget to enter her giveaway:)

Take it away Jennifer …

Never Underestimate What Can Influence a Writer…

Hi, all, Jennifer here!

Thanks so much to Christine’s Words for having me today. J

From Fake to Forever was actually one of the first books I’d ever written. As an author, you never know what’s going to spark a story for you. Sometimes it’s a character’s name or maybe their profession, or sometimes it’s a personality trait. In this particular case, I was inspired to write this story by something I saw.

I was at the playground with my daughter (on a play date) when one of the mothers I was with almost got stuck in a slide as she was showing her daughter how to go down it. Well, I couldn’t stop laughing and right then and there I knew I had to use this scene somehow in a book. Turned out that scene became my opening scene in the very next book I sat down to write.

After that, I just needed to create the characters to make the scene work. When I wrote From Fake to Forever I was very involved in the preschool scene (since my daughter was in preschool at the time) so of course that was a big influence in creating my heroine —an owner of a preschool. Then I decided to make my hero a “fish out water” kind of character and thought it would be fun to make him a famous actor who was used to LA parties not princess tea parties. LOL

Even my daughter had an influence in this story! When I was writing my book, she spotted a bug in the corner of the room and yelled, “Bug!” and wouldn’t stop pointing at it until I physically got up and “took care” of it. Again, I thought it was the funniest thing, so I used a little of that in one of my scenes, but kind of took it to a whole other level. (You’ll have to read the book to know what I’m talking about!)

I hope you all get a chance to read Ben and Sandra’s story in From Fake to Forever. It was a lot of fun to write so I hope that comes through in the book!

Thanks again for having me today!

Happy reading!

FROM FAKE TO FOREVER
Jennifer Shirk
Released June 6th, 2016
Entangled Bliss
Sandra
Moyer’s preschool is struggling, so when her sister suggests allowing a
super-famous actor to research his latest role there, she reluctantly agrees.
Except the actor turns out to be Ben Capshaw—a playboy who’s never serious,
always joking around, and who knows zero about kids or being a parent. Case in
point: his involvement in the untimely death of the preschool’s class pet…
 
Ben is enjoying teaching more than
he thought he would, but that doesn’t mean he’s looking for a permanent
position. Sure, he’s ready for more serious movie roles and less goofing off,
but the buttoned-up, beautiful Sandra and her young daughter are more than he
bargained for. Plus, Sandra still won’t trust him—what if it’s all an act,
research for the role? As the lines between make-believe and reality blur, Ben
will have to decide if love is worth casting aside the role of his life for a
new role…that could last a lifetime.
Previously released as The Role of a
Lifetime – (May 2008) and has been enhanced with new material.

EXCERPT

“I’d love to come,” he answered.

What?

“Hip, hip, hooray!” Hannah shouted as she galloped around the office.

Sandra gritted her teeth. Ben wasn’t helping the situation, standing there, laughing as her daughter jumped her little heart out. Frustration constricted in her chest, since she was left with no choice but to be the bad guy. No matter. She was used to it. The way she always made up excuses for her ex-husband, she had the bad guy routine down to an art form by now.

“Sweetie,” she said, taking her daughter by the shoulders, “Big Bens is a very busy”

“Sandra, I said I’d love to come.”

She looked up and saw he was serious. He really didn’t want her getting him out of lunch on the boardwalk. Huh. That was a new one to her. But out of habit, she tried one more time. “Aren’t you worried about being recognized?”

He flashed her a confident grin, reaching deep into his pocket, whipping out what looked like a black necklace and twirling it around his index finger.

“What’s that?” she asked.

Hannah’s little hands went for the object, but Ben yanked it out of her reach just in time. “Nice try.” He looked at Sandra, his grin widening. “It’s my eye patch.”

“Your eye patch,” she repeated dully. “Has this role you’re after changed to a pirates-of-the-Jersey-shore movie?”

“No,” he said with a chuckle. “Since you had me shave, it’s my new disguise. I stopped at a convenience store the other day and got accosted by two teenage girls who recognized me as soon as I reached for a gallon of milk. One of them even pinched my—”

“I get it,” Sandra said, holding up a hand.

“I’m just saying. Fame isn’t easy.”

Poor baby. “So now you honestly walk around wearing that thing?”

He answered her question by putting it on.

Oh, dear. She hated to admit it, but the eye patch looked good on him. Why was she even surprised? Of course it did. He was a handsome man, and now he made one heck of a handsome pirate. To her disgust, her heart even did a somersault.

That settled it. Ben coming with them to lunch had bad idea written all over it. She looked to Hannah, hoping for an ally, or at the very least, some kind of sign. “What do you think, sweetie? Do you want to go to lunch with a scary pirate?”

Pi-rate, pi-rate, pi-rate,” her little traitor began to chant, giggling and dancing around some more.

Not the sign she’d hoped for.

Sandra shrugged at Ben. “I guess you can come with us.”

“Arr, shiver me timbers,” he said in an exaggerated pirate twang. He winked his uncovered eye at Hannah and hooked his thumbs in his pants. “This is the nicest your mom’s been to a poor old bloke like meself in days.”

Sandra poked a finger in his chest but grinned. “Don’t make me regret this, or you’ll walk the plank.”

He grinned back and, with that eye patch, turned kneemeltingly rakish in under ten seconds flat. “Aye, I won’t be asking you to make me Roger jolly, if that’s what has you worrying.”

She laughed. Then he surprised her by taking her hand in his and raising it up to his lips. “I’ve already given you me word,” he said huskily, still in his pirate character.

“Friendship and perhaps a kind word here and there ’tis all I’m after.”

RELEASE BLAST ~ Winning the Billionaire by JM Stewart

In the tradition of E.L. James and Sylvia Day comes a
sultry new series 
starring women who want to live out their wildest dreams . .

 

WINNING THE BILLIONAIRE 
Seattle Bachelors #2
JM Stewart
Releasing June 14th, 2016
Forever Yours

 

In the tradition of E.L. James and
Sylvia Day comes a sultry new series starring women who want to live out their
wildest dreams . . . 


When it comes to love, this
billionaire is all business . . .


Software mogul Christina McKenzie
has loved billionaire Sebastian Blake since they were kids. So when Seattle’s
most famous bachelor-and perennial playboy-finally asks Christina out, her
fantasies kick into overdrive. Things become hot and heavy . . . but what’s she
supposed to do when she starts to fall for him?

Sebastian’s never been one to settle
down, and Christina knows she’s just another notch in his bedpost.


Sebastian
knows that smart, kind Christina deserves better than him. But after the
mind-blowing night they just shared, he’s ready to turn a sexy fling into the
real deal. Keeping his freedom is one thing, yet keeping Christina in his
bed-and in his life-is all Sebastian can think about . . .

EXCERPT

“Damn it, Christina.” He pivoted and stalked across the space between them, backed her against the counter behind her, and set his hands on either side of her. His eyes narrowed, his gaze hot and confrontational. “Go. Home.”

More than a little surprised by his sudden nearness, she swallowed hard, her heart hammering a mile a minute. He was so close, his every breath whispered over her lips, warm, with a slight hint of mint that made her yearn to discover the flavor on his tongue. She ignored the intense desire to close the remaining inches between them and held her ground. This wasn’t about her desire. He needed her, whether he wanted to admit it or not.

She angled her chin higher. “Or what? I’m not afraid of you. You can’t boss me around.”

If he wanted a fight, though, she’d give him one, because she knew him enough to know he would attempt to intimidate her. No doubt in order to get her to leave him alone to his misery. If a subject had anything to do with emotion, he avoided it as if it were a highly contagious disease. She’d never let the tactic work before, and she wouldn’t now.

This time, though, he didn’t do what she expected him to. Rather, his right hand slid into her hair, and before she could blink, he pulled her mouth to his. He didn’t give her a chance to back away, to approve or deny his assault. His kiss wasn’t fleeting, either, or soft and seductive, the way she’d always envisioned. His lips plied hers, tugging and demanding. His tongue stroked the seam of her mouth, a hot slide that had her gasping and opening for him. He took full advantage and swept in, his tongue restless in her mouth.

She whimpered. What she needed to do was push him away. He wasn’t thinking clearly. He was lost in grief. Her body, however, didn’t seem to be listening. His mouth was warm and luscious, and her arms wound themselves around his neck. How many times over the years had she imagined this moment? How many times had she stroked herself to orgasm fantasizing about his hands and his mouth on her body? Yet the reality far exceeded the fantasy, and God help her, she didn’t have the strength to deny him.

Unfortunately, the fantasy didn’t last long. As abruptly as he’d grabbed her, he released her. His breaths came harsh and shallow, his chest heaving in time with the fierce pounding of her heart.

“That’s what. It’s been a shitty day, Tina, and I’m feeling very ornery and very needy.” As if to prove his point, he set his hands on the counter on either side of her and leaned into her, rocking his hips against hers.

The full press of his lean body against her had any thought of protest flitting away like wisps on a breeze. Sebastian was aroused, and his erection pressed into the softness of her stomach. He didn’t feel like a small boy, either. She itched to reach down and stroke the length of his cock. She longed to put an end to the wondering and finally discover exactly how big he really was, yearned to know the soft, intimate heat of his skin.

The intensity of his stare held her trapped. Sapphires. He had eyes the colors of deep, brilliant sapphires. They were usually intense and focused. Right then, they were in full seduction mode. Never in a million years would she have thought to find herself on the receiving end of that captivating stare. She’d never been the kind of girl who went all tongue-tied over a man, who giggled and sighed. She was a woman in a male-dominated industry; she could hold her own with most men. But right then? God help her, she wanted to do exactly that: giggle like a giddy schoolgirl and beg him to fuck her senseless.

for getting the then underage Ronni pregnant, i.e. statutory rape. The couple
has not slept together since. The spoiled Brad is resentful and can be verbally
abusive to both Ronni and their daughter who he mostly ignores.
 
Brad is not the only one trapped in an
unwanted marriage. Ronni was a dirt-poor teenager when her grandfather forced
her to marry the rich medical student. She is simply trying to make the best of
a bad marriage until she can finish college and be able to support herself and
Traci.
 
One day after a medical conference,
Brad returns home a changed man. He starts acting like a real father to Traci
who now adores him. Brad even treats Ronni with kindness.
As
her heart melts towards Brad, Ronni wonders if he is still seeing his mistress. As her heart melts towards Brad, Ronni wonders if he is still
seeing his mistress even as she begins to trust him.
 
Ronni finds she enjoys her husband spying through the keyhole of
her bedroom door. She begins to perform for him.
 
Once Ronni has a taste of forbidden
passion, she is addicted until Brad begins acting like a Jekyll-Hyde and his
violent outbursts return. She believes he may be bipolar, never realizing that
something far more sinister is going on, and she is playing a dangerous game
beneath the covers with Brad.
 
As secrets unfold, lies unravel, and
fraud is uncovered, what happened at a Philly medical convention sets off a
chain of events that begs the question, does a woman really know the cracks
beneath her husband’s skin?

EXCERPT

Well here goes, now it begins, a devious plan concocted in Philly. “You look nice, Ronni.” Wow! My voice had gone up as if she clenched my balls because the wife looked unbelievably sexy. In soft light, she appeared almost pretty with her hair mussed. One strap of her t-shirt drooped over her shoulder.

Okay, down boy! Quit picturing how she would look with pointy nipples tingling with excitement, and legs spread wide, hips humping. I cursed the desire welling inside my dark soul. I must not sleep with her—ever! That was our agreement. “Ronni?” I said in a eunuch voice.

“Well, who were you expecting, Brad? Fool!”

Next to the wedding picture was a photo of a child, supposedly my daughter. The oldest trick in the book was to trap a man with pregnancy.

“No one calls me a fool and gets away with it!”

She ran towards the stairs.

My legs were longer and I grabbed her arm, laughing at her kicking and missing.

I spun her around, trapping her with my arms. Our bodies touched everywhere and I held her even tighter. “You smell of jasmine,” I moaned, lowering her to the stairs and raining kisses across her neck. Her wiggling aroused me beyond belief. I throbbed, pounding with such pressure; all I could think of was easing my pain in Ronni. My blood rushed to that one spot where my need was desperate. At this moment, the act was worth any price. Guilt could come later. I closed my eyes, and muttered, “God, I promise to say ten Hail Marys later even though I’m not Catholic.”

I shoved her hand on my pants, rubbing her palm against me. “Please, I need you, Ronni. Feel how much I want you. I need you so much, Ronni. Please, stroke me, pet me. Yeah, that’s it. More!”

She quit struggling and groaned.

I removed my hand and she continued rubbing. Squeezing. Pulling. Caressing.

My breath came in deep gasps. “Unzip me,” I panted and tugged at the zipper of her pants, my fingers clumsily poking her.

“Ouch, get off me you oaf!”

She slapped my cheek hard, sobering me, making me remember who we were and that bed was out of the question between us. “Again, Brad? You’re raping me again?”

I stood, straightening my pants and feeling rather sheepish about the rape thing. I plunked down on a step to conceal my throbbing arousal, looking like a petulant child. Any moment now, I might have a temper tantrum—Ronni really should give out to her husband. She was a tramp, just as her mother had been.

“I wish you stayed in Philadelphia permanently, Brad, or the plane crashed,” she snapped.

I never struck a woman in my life and clenched my hands into fists, resisting the urge to punch her. It took a minute for my pants to deflate. I then stumbled up the stairs, banging my ankle against the last step.
