He stays like that for a moment, watching me for a reaction. I smile, and I say just one word:
“Please.” His hands are welcome there –
he can touch me anyplace, anytime. He
pulls my panties down, and they fall around my ankles. I step out of them, and I’m naked. Completely exposed. Exactly the way I want – need – to be.
I do it so slowly, stretching it out, the same way I always linger over
unwrapping the last present under the Christmas tree. First his shirt, one button at a time,
pausing after each one, kissing every inch of his chest as it’s uncovered. Then his pants; I carefully, deliberately
unbuckle his belt, unbutton them at the waist, and with a hand that’s not
trembling at all, I pull down the zipper.
He lets the pants fall down, and I turn my attention to his boxers. I tug them down, a bit at a time, until,
finally, all is revealed.

I had to watch his eyes to know when he was losing himself, when
conscious thought disappeared and unconscious desire was all that
remained. But now I can sense it as

Sheri, thank you SO much for featuring me! I really appreciate it!
I hope you'll stop by again some time!
Mmmmm, slow undressing is always yummy, James. I hope you enjoy my little bit of hotness also. *********** “You have such fire in you. Let it out, see what it feels like.” A surge of electricity moved from her centre up through her body. She’d felt this in the past, when practising magic, but this time was different. There was a wildness about this energy, a tinge of wickedness, a feeling of wanton, unruly lust, like nothing she’d felt before. Heat built between her legs, and she moaned involuntarily. Her pussy clenched, and suddenly she could smell Adam, then Tristan… Read more »
Naomi is writing HOT again! WOW! Thank you for heating up the morning.
Wow! That's a heck of a wake-up call1
Fascinating excerpt. Here is an excerpt from Black Dorn. He rose and held out his hand. When Branwyn stood, he swept her into his arms and carried her to his bed. "Branwyn, I choose you as my wife, not my duna, my wife." Branwyn’s eyes widened as her hand clasped to her mouth. "You were bought for another, but that can be dealt with. I am the gon-dra." "Do you know by whom I was purchased?" "It is of little matter. Every castle or manor house in this part of the land is loyal to Black Dorn." He placed his… Read more »
For anyone who hasn't read your book, Black Dorn, get ready for some skin-tingling excitement. Awesome read, great story. Thank you so much for sharing your excerpt today!
I'll definitely check that out!
forgot to say – tweeted 🙂
*giggles* Thanks, Daryl. 🙂
Great excerpts. Here is mine from The Secret Life of Miss Anna Marsh. Book #2 in The Marriage Game. Kneeling, Anna unbuttoned the fall of his buckskin breeches. His fully erect shaft sprung up to greet her. She took it lightly in her hands and lowered her mouth over it. “Oh God, Anna,” he moaned. His fingers winnowed through her hair, loosening the pins in her tresses. He tasted salty and musky. She whirled her tongue and sucked. Other than his hands in her hair, he was still. She lifted her head. “Am I doing this right? I read the… Read more »
Man! I just love the ending to your excerpt!! SQUEE!
Another slow one. Instructions? I'm intrigued.
Hot stuff today! This is from The Cowboy's Baby, coming in September. Cat backed up a step and fought the urge to cover herself with her hands. Instead she lifted her chin and met his eyes with her own undisguised desire. With a saucy glance, she turned and went into the bathroom. After adjusting the water, she stepped under the warm spray. Tanner followed her. He placed a condom beside her shampoo.He placed his hands on either side of her head, pinning her against the wall. Then he bent his head, his lips claiming hers. Their tongues danced, mated. Previewed… Read more »
Nice shower scene. One can never be too clean!
WOW, love it.
Great excerpt, Ladies and Gents! 🙂
I expect to see your work on the Flames very soon, Melissa! Grins!
From my unusual Victorian polyamorous romance with a touch of reader interactive art-history — Loving Leonardo. Setting the stage: Nicolas, Ellie and Luca discuss the artist's methods as they pore over Leonardo da Vinci's book looking for clues to love messages the artist left for his lover Salai. They realize some of Leonardo's techniques work well outside the realm of art, namely blindfolds to remove one sense to enhance the rest. Deprived of sight, they give over to their other senses. ****I could see why Leonardo blindfolded himself. Submerged in touch and sound, scent and taste, I understood why he… Read more »
Here's my excerpt… It is a perfect example of how children can ruin the steamy moment! This is from Three's a Crowd: Listening to Alex’s rant was difficult because I couldn’t do anything to fix things. Chloe had been my friend for years. She was the one who shared her own issues with Alex after their break up and offered a shoulder to lean on during my own divorce. Yet I could understand Alex’s anger. I hated seeing him upset. Curling into the crook of Alex’s arm, I rested my head on his shoulder as he continued to seethe about… Read more »
You wrote that scene GREAT, Melissa! LOL Darn those kids…
Yep, they can cool things down fast!
I love all the excerpts I've seen here today – very hot stuff!
I'll turn up the air conditioning….
