Introducing The INTERVENUS SERIES from Kathleen Rowland

A Brand New Address is the first book in Kathleen Rowland's Intervenus series, aimed at the New Adult market.

The cosmic impact of 2153 throws Earth into a second Ice Age and impacts planet orbits in the entire solar system.  Water erupts on the moon-sized asteroids near Mars and Venus, morphing their atmospheres into habitable.  After Mars’ nuclear war, Venus is the next big hope.

Yardley is reserved, Marchand has communication issues, and despite their initial mutual crush, it looks like they are never going to work things out.
Taking place during 22nd Century Earth’s second ice age, A BRAND NEW ADDRESS follows childhood friends Yardley Van Dyke and Marchand LaFond who trick and tease each other.  Robin-hooding thief Marchand sails his ice-boat across the frozen tundra to deliver fuel and food to the needy.  Subsistence gardener Yardley gives away home-cooked meals.  Just when their attraction sizzles, he enters a space race to Venus.
Yardley promised her dying mother she’d care for the family by growing food in their greenhouse.  Clashing with Dad’s fiancé puts her on the outs at home.  After winning a prize for an intergalactic garden project, she wants to prove her prototype works on Venus.
Groomed for the mission and calling the shots, Marchand can’t let emotions to get in the way.  Maneuvering through sun spikes and space junk is dangerous enough.  Evil competitor Vito Savage plans to annihilate competing shuttles. Will Savage’s darkest sins come to light? If Yardley goes, will she tolerate Marchand’s brazen exterior?  Will Venus be their brand new address where life will find them?
Available in paperback or eBook on Amazon, B&N, iTunes, Kobo, & Smashwords!

Dee Sheridan and Love Awakens

Weary of her vampire existence, Detective Pamela Manley laser-focuses on her job as a police officer. Life is perfect until a certain handsome lawyer crosses her in court. What he doesn't know is that she's centuries older than he is, and she intends to control him.

Defense lawyer Stephen Armsbury is hot for the beautiful cop. After an evening of food and intimate kisses, he plans to get her into his bed ASAP. Furious when he discovers she's also a vamp, not to mention older and more powerful, he must discover why she shields her powers from him.

Hot-to-the-touch vampire elders and one lusty vamp rebel meddle in their growing relationship. Will Pamela reconcile herself with her undead status? Can Stephen win the love of his bewitching cop?

Can you guess what the answer to those questions is?

Excerpt
His sire was such a beautiful man, and watching him in his sexual activities was always arousing. Damian slid an arm around Stephen's waist, obviously turned on by what was happening around them. He turned, thrust fierce fingers through Damian's raven hair, cupped his head, and met his kiss with his own assault.
"I love watching Hugo," Damian admitted, releasing Stephen's lips.
Through lust-narrowed eyes, they followed Hugo's actions. He'd shoved up the fringed skirt and put his mouth at the apex of her thighs. The other female helped lower her to a chaise and sucked at the flapper's nipples as eagerly as Hugo ate her nether lips.
Damian backed Stephen to a pillar, knelt, and opened the fastenings of his breeches. Forgetting his sire, he needed all his focus on his king. His face tautened with fervent excitement, his knees stiffening to hold himself up.
His cock sprung free as if eager for a masterful blow job. Which, if he recalled Damian's sexual abilities correctly, it very definitely would be. Then he shuddered. Damian's mouth, hot and wet, surrounded his shaft, one hand braced on his thigh and the other cupping his balls. The king knew exactly how he liked it.
Stephen slid his fingers through Damian's hair, clutched the strands, knowing by the rapid movements and loud slurping that the sharp tugs aroused the king.
"Yes," crooned Stephen when Damian scored his sensitive cock with extended fangs. His hips
flexed and thrust into Dame's mouth. He felt his anus release and contract wanting his breeches ripped down and Hugo's cock, or any cock for that matter, rammed in for a hard, furious, and thorough fucking. But all he could do now was pump into Damian's face and enjoy. Damian, not neglecting anal play, slid his palm around to stroke Stephen's ass and grind his fingers into the crack through the satin breeches. His king did not forget the good parts.
Heat blasted through him, his thighs quivered, ass clenched, and Damian completely swallowed his ejaculation, the sensation of his throat massaging the tip of his cock unbelievably pleasurable. Stephen closed his eyes, his head tipped back on the column, and he released a long, low growl of pure satisfaction. Slowly, eyes still closed, he regained his senses and listened to the music of the instruments on the dais accompanying the music of the sexual energy in the ballroom. Even though he'd just been the recipient of one of Dame's amazing hummers—Stephen loved that word—the surrounding moans and shrieks aroused him again. Damian was good, but Pamela Manley was his goal.
He cranked open his eyes when he felt soft, female lips on his. Veronica. Hm. She ate at his mouth, thrusting in her tongue like it was a little cock. Watching Dame suck a man's cock got her horny, and she usually joined the action.

GETTING IT RIGHT with Christi Williams



Last of a long line of agrarian witches, Selene Pertunda thinks she will never meet the right man...until with the help of a little magic, she finds Beck McNeal.

Named for the Goddess of Desire, can she dream of lasting happiness with only one man?

   Selene Pertunda has no trouble attracting a man. She just can’t seem to find the right one. From abusive husband Robert to tattooed bad boy lover Kevin, Selene draws men to her like bears to her honeypot. The problem is that none of them proves to be a good fit.
   Sure she will never find a shared happiness, Selene has no way to suspect she’s drawn the attention of a powerful goddess. So she scoffs at the idea that the handsome man who begins to  play a large part in her life could be her destiny. After all, what could worldly, educated Beck McNeal want with a small-town girl like Selene?
   Selene and Beck try to their best to resist the inexplicable mutual magnetism flaring between them. But can two ordinary people avoid the decree of the Goddess of Desire?

Excerpt:


Powell County Library
Magickal! Mystical! Metaphysical Fair

Selene rolled her eyes after scanning the posterboard sign propped next to the door of the library’s meeting room. In this era of online information, the local library must really be hurting for walk-in patrons if they had to resort to this sort of entertainment. She herself had almost had to be dragged here. The last thing she wanted right now was to have her palm or her aura read. In fact she refused to even consider it. Deep inside, where the truths she was afraid to examine resided, she knew all the indications for the unhappy ending she predicted for herself could be revealed today if she let her guard down.

Inside the meeting room, Selene and her long-time friend Sarah stood in front of a plastic folding table draped with a blue silk shawl and printed with silver stars and white crescent moons. Really, could it get any more phony? Selene thought. But Sarah giggled and nudged Selene, wanting to continue. A woman with shoulder length dark hair and piercing dark eyes watched them from the other side of the table, her hands toying with an oversized deck of cards. 

“You first,” Sarah said.

“I only came here today because you wanted to, Sarah,” Selene answered. The woman seated behind the table continued to watch them closely. Sarah’s fidgeting and giggling made Selene feel like a teenager, definitely not a good thing in her estimation. “I worked late last night. I’m tired. Let’s just get this over with so I can go home to bed.”

“Sit down,” the woman seated behind the table invited, gesturing to the chairs placed in front of the table.

Selene glanced at the woman, certain she would see it was Sarah being addressed. But instead the tarot card reader looked directly at Selene. A shiver ran down Selene’s back at the woman’s unblinking dark-eyed scrutiny.

Selene shook her head. “I don’t want my fortune told.”

“Maybe you should allow me to take just a peek at the cards for you,” the woman insisted in a soft voice. “There might be interesting things in store for you. Things that you’ve never dreamed possible.”

“Right. Like what? Tall, dark, and handsome?” It sounded to Selene’s own ears like she was sneering at the woman’s talent, so she probably was. No, she definitely was. But the woman didn’t seem to take offense. “You never know,” the card reader answered softly.

Selene shrugged, turning her back and walking away, beginning a slow circuit of the other offerings lining the meeting room’s walls while she waited. Sarah took the proffered seat across from the tarot card reader and immediately became engrossed in whatever the woman proceeded to tell her.

Selene kept moving, afraid if she sat while she waited for Sarah she would fall asleep. Reiki she read on one card atop a blanket-draped bench. Life force healing through the laying on of hands.

Reflexology was printed on another sign taped to the door of a smaller adjacent room. Reflexes in the hands and ears and especially the feet correspond to every part, gland and organ of the body!

There were tables for Hypnosis. ForCrystals and Meditation, and one for a devotee of something called Spirit Guides. That particular woman came prepared with large fold-out displays that explained how to identify and understand the messages sent by spirit animals to humans.

Part of her bored, a small part fascinated, and a large part amused, Selene wondered how these practitioners of alternative therapies managed to survive in southwest Wyoming. They must constitute a veritable underground belief system in a place populated by rough oilfield workers and their giant pickup trucks.

Only one of the many exhibitions caused Selene to stop long enough to actually read any of the literature scattered across the table top. Ghosts explained how the belief in spirits was ancient. Practices of spiritualism and ritual magic were not just intended to return restless spirits of the dead to their repose, but for the living to interact with them.

The explanation caught her attention because it jibed with her own beliefs. Animism one page of a brochure read: the belief that spirits existed in all things, animate or inanimate. The universe itself possessed a spirit, and the spirit of everything combined was universal. Selene knew this to be correct because her nona had told her so.

Selene was the last of a long line of streghe or nature witches. With a history stretching back before the time of the Etruscans, the old knowledge was now almost buried by the avalanche of Christian doctrine blanketing thefertile valleys of the Dolomites. By the time the belief filtered down through the years and distance from Europe to reach Selene the flame burned so low it had almost guttered out.

But not quite. She still believed in the ancient agrarian spirits, the gods and goddesses of Nature and fertility, agriculture and fecundity. Even though she lived in the dry high desert and had for her whole life. Even though her last true link with the old religion, her nona, had been dead for twenty years.

And that’s why, when she completed the circuit of the room and stood once more before the dark-haired psychic, almost against her will Selene extended her hand to receive the business card the woman held out to her:

Tarot  * ) Divination ( * Clairvoyant
* ) Spells ( *
* ) Spiritual Healing ( *
20 years’ experience
Madame Fortunata

“Call me,” Madame murmured, her finger tapping the card where her phone number was printed. “Make an appointment. Please. I can help you.”

In spite of the pull of modern rationality and the tendency to disbelieve, the inner voice strongly urging her to run before she made a choice whose consequences she couldn’t control, Selene stared helplessly into the deep pools of the woman’s hypnotic eyes. “All right” she was aghast to hear herself agreeing.

Eight Festive Sentences from a Medieval #Romance by Suz deMello (#Yule @MFRW_ORG)





http://www.wewriwa.com/

This weekend's snippet is from Viking in Tartan, a short medieval romance. In this scene, Rhona, the laird's daughter, is taking in the room where she is about to be married:

She glanced around. Their Great Hall wasna so great, but on this afternoon the servants had outdone themselves. They’d cleared away the remains of the previous night’s revelry and decorated every table, mantel and window ledge with fresh evergreen and holly boughs. Their fragrance and bright berries lent a festive atmosphere to the ceremony. Pale moonlight struggled through the few arrow slits uncovered by tapestries. A fire crackled and glowed, fed by the great Yule log that smoldered in the hearth. 

Da had ordered a young sheep, one of the lambs born the previous spring, slaughtered so they ate it roasted with a sauce made of berries and rosemary along with wheat boiled in broth and some haggis. Roasted rabbit and fish from the chilly ponds rounded out the meal, with both a sweet and a savory custard ending all. 

The story is about a Viking warrior who brings change to Clan Kilbirnie in the year 1260--especially to Rhona herself. It's found in the Naughty List, a boxed set put out by the Naughty Literati.

    Who are the Naughty Literati, you ask? We are a group of steamy romance
writers who have banded together to produce excellent stories, stories so hot, so cool, so unique, so special that they deserve special treatment. We plan to give the world--the romance reading world, that is--four anthologies annually, more or less.

     Naughty List, our first boxed set, of course has a winter holiday theme, but this is far from your usual vapid fare about kissing under the mistletoe and random sex at office Christmas parties. No--we have stories from the steamiest erotica to the most heart-warming happily ever after. We have medievals and futuristics, ménages and committed couples rediscovering love. You want romance? You want hot sex? We have it all.

A Holiday Spanking from Kinky Toes (@fetlife #footfetish #spanking)


It's a spanky holiday party in Kinky Toes, a different take on the office holiday romance.

Designer Shelbie Nathanson resents Rick Saldano’s ascension to C.O.O. of her family’s shoe empire, a job she’s wanted all her life. But she finds it hard to resist when she discovers his imagination in the bedroom is a match for her creativity in the boardroom.


And Rick’s passion for peep toes, slingbacks and stilettos goes beyond the purely professional. Soon Shelbie finds herself falling for the foot fetishist.

Here's the sexy spanking:

Smack! The slap of his hand on her butt shook her. She gasped. “Rick!”  Her eyes popped open.

He laughed, but it wasn’t an unkind laugh. He kneaded the spot he’d struck, then spanked her again. She’d thought she’d come enough, but the spanking heated her blood anew.

Creating a Christmas Tradition: Dance Me to the End of Time by Catherine Cavendish

For the last couple of years, I have run a beautiful little Christmas shortie by one of my author buddies, Catherine Cavendish. I was lucky enough to edit Cat professionally, and not only is she very agreeable to work with, she's also a very creative writer. I love her work and hope you do too.


Dance Me To The End Of Time
by
Catherine Cavendish

          I’ve always loved Christmas. The tree, tinsel and a roaring fire… Candles flickering and the sound of carollers striving to hit the top register in “Hark the Herald Angels Sing.”
           This year’s no different. Of course, there’s no roaring fire anymore. That’s been replaced with one of those living flame gas affairs. Quite nice, but you never could beat the real thing.
            “Penny for them.” My husband, Charles, interrupts my reverie.
            “Oh, nothing. I was just musing and remembering Christmases past.” I smile at him.
             
He adjusts his tie and smoothes his glossy black hair, 

all  gestures I have seen him perform countless times. “Do you think it will snow this year?” he asks, studying his reflection in the mirror.
            I turn to look out of the window. “It’s too dark to tell, but it looks damp out there. It must have been raining earlier.”
            “I didn’t notice,” Charles says, “but then I suppose I wouldn’t, would I?” He smiles at me and takes my hand, brushing it against his lips. Then I catch him examining my dress.
            “Something wrong?” I ask and instinctively look down at my white, floor-length gown. I see some creases in the silk which I attempt to smooth away.
            “That’s better. It was just a little wrinkled.”
            “Hardly surprising,” I say. “It only gets an outing once a year.”
            We laugh, and Charles strokes away a long, dark brown lock of hair which has escaped my elaborate coiffure and has wandered across my cheek.
            “Shall we dance, Emily?” he asks.
            “Certainly, Charles, it will be my pleasure.”
            We waltz to a phantom orchestra. In my head I can hear the strains of the Blue Danube, and I am transported back to another time and place. I can see a young girl and her young man, their eyes locked in an embrace as they swirl around a ballroom in Vienna while a conductor, violin in hand, steers the orchestra through his latest composition.
            “I miss the scent of roasting chestnuts,” I tell Charles.
           His mouth widens in a grin. “But can’t you smell them, Emily?  Concentrate really hard.”
            I close my eyes and let him lead me round and round as the music grows louder, and now I can smell them. Chestnuts, little fried potatoes and the warming aroma of cinnamon from the Glühwein.  I can hear the bells of St Stephen’s Cathedral and feel the chill of the night air on my cheek. Little flecks of snow are falling onto my face, and my feet crunch on the icy ground.             
          Charles is waltzing me faster and faster. And now I can hear the voices.  The orchestra has faded and a choir is singing in German: “Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht…”
            “Oh Charles--”
            “No, Emily, don’t open your eyes.”
            I obey. “Don’t let it stop, Charles, please don’t let it stop,” I cry, “Not this time. Not this year.”
            “Dance with me, Emily. Dance with me.”
            The choir has faded, and the orchestra builds to a crescendo. I know if I open my eyes, I will see the wild black hair of the conductor, falling over his eyes as his violin bow slashes through the air.
            But I mustn’t open my eyes.  Charles told me not to.
            “Oh Emily, Emily,” Charles says, “Let us never lose this moment.  Never.”
            “Never, Charles.”
            And then I open my eyes.
            “No, Emily, no!” Charles’ agonized face is before me. But the moment has passed.
            The orchestra is silent. There are no roasting chestnuts, no carol singers, no hot spiced wine.
            Vienna has gone.
            “Oh Emily, you did it again. Just like last year. Just like every year.”
            I am crestfallen. He takes my face in his hands. He kisses my lips, and I close my eyes again, trying to recapture the dream. But it’s too late.
            “Never mind, my love, there’s always next year.”
            “As long as we’re still here,” I say, my old fears returning.
            “I expect we will be. They seem to like us well enough.”
            From the hallway, I hear the unmistakable sound of a key in the lock. It’s time.
            “Come, my love. We must return.” Charles once again takes my hand and together we gaze at the empty picture above the mantelpiece.
            “Until next year and the magic returns,” he whispers.
            “Until next year. Happy Christmas, Charles.”
            “Happy Christmas, Emily.”
            The door opens and a young couple wanders in, each holding a glass of red wine. They are both dressed smartly, she in a navy suit, he in dark grey. She has short blond hair, and his is dark. They look very modern to me.
            The woman’s gaze is drawn to the painting. “I’ve always loved that picture.” She sighs, raising her glass to her lips and taking a sip.
            “That’s why I bought it for you,” the man says and nuzzles her neck.
            “Dance Me to the End of Time,” she murmurs. “Such an evocative title. And it really looks as if that’s what they’re doing, doesn’t it? You feel they could just step out of that frame and glide around the room.”
            Her husband laughs. “You and your imagination.”
            The woman moves toward the fireplace and is peering closer. “There it is again.  The damnedest thing!”
            “What?” he asks.
            “I noticed it last year, but only on Christmas Eve, and it’s happened again this year. Look at her eyes.”
            The man does as he is bid.
            “Can you see it? There at the corner of her eye. A tear. It looks as if it’s just about to spill down her cheek, but I bet you it won’t be there in the morning.”
            The man laughs. “You’re imagining it. Too much wine at dinner.”
            “Say what you like. I know what I saw.” She steps back.
            She’s right, of course.  It’s the tear I cannot cry every Christmas when the magic ends.
            And we are frozen here in time and space.

Katie deLong: Don't Wear Body Glitter, and five other things I learned from exotic dancers

Enjoy the sweet and snarky opinions of writer Katie deLong, Suzie's companion in the boxed set, What to Read After Fifty Shades of Grey v. 8:

#1. You are beautiful. Yes, you. When it comes down to it, people just like looking at other people. Whether you look like a human interpretation of a Barbie, or could easily cosplay as Jabba The Hut, with confidence you can rule that stage. And if they don't see that, they don't deserve to be watching. Spill a drink in their lap.

#2. Strike a Pose. On that note, spacial awareness isn't just for self absorbed starlets who have “bad sides”. A tiny difference in the way you angle your body can make the difference between pausing in a position that leads the eye along your curves like a sensuous hourglass, and making your movements look disjointed or dead, or emphasizing the parts of you you are most self conscious about. Find a few good poses in the full length mirror, and practice lots of transitions to get into them. And maintain eye contact when you nail that pose.

#3. Accessorize! Self conscious about your waistline? Don't get completely naked; just pick out a good underbust waist cincher, and if it has clips for stockings, make sure you clip the stockings on before you put your panties on. That way you can keep it on while you remove them. If you want to keep his eyes on your chest, layer longer necklaces. Just be sure none of them have loose jump rings or sharp-edged pendants. You know that thing where two nerds kiss and their braces stick together? Imagine that with the pendant on your choker, and your voyeur's pants. Awkward.

#4. Don't wear body glitter. In the club, this is sometimes more practical; glitter is like herpes. It gets everywhere you don't want it, and sticks to everyone in sneezing distance. Most guys don't like being covered in glitter, and if they're sneaking out of the house, their spouse will like it even less. But more to the point, glitter, even cosmetic safe glitter, can be irritating to the skin. It can be damaging if it migrates into someone's contacts, it can irritate--- ahem--- other parts of you if it gets ground in during the fun times. On that note, never ever ever just grab craft glitter and mix it with your lotion. Cosmetic glitters are more expensive, but they're less likely to cause permanent damage. Cosmetic glitters are produced to have fewer sharp edges that might cut your eyes' surface.

#5. Do wear glittery eyeshadow. There's a time and a place for everything. And glittery eyeshadow can take an ordinary smoky eye from date night to larger than life.  A little in the inner corner of the eye can light up your face. Or even covering the lids completely. The trick to keeping it in place is in what you use to stick it to your skin. Some companies produce sticky primers, like Fyrinnae's Pixie Epoxy, that are good. To be honest, though, my favorite is plain old Vaseline.  This doesn't work for normal eyeshadow, because Vaseline sits on the skin, and will smear it around. But that exact lack of absorption makes it basically ideal for keeping hold of the glitter all night long. Put it ONLY on the lid, not where your eye creases- in the crease, it will move around more. And use as little as you can. Just enough to make the skin tacky.

About Katie deLong's writing:

Queen of Clubs series

The exotic dancers and employees of the Queen of Clubs walk a fine line, with only wits, beauty, and market savvy to keep them from toppling into the shark pit. Ride shotgun through lapdances, romance, and sexual awakenings. Don't worry, these girls won't ask what your hands are doing under the tip rail. 


About Katie deLong

Katie de Long lives in the Pacific northwest, realizing her dream of being a crazy cat-lady. As a kid, Katie flagged the fade-to-blacks in every adult book she encountered, and when she began writing, she vowed to use cutaways sparingly. After all, that's when the good stuff happens. And on a kindle, no one asks why there's so many bookmarks in her library.

A Holiday Office Romance Turns Kinky in "Kinky Toes" (#rafflecopter #footfetish @fetlife #romance #xmas)

My holiday office romance is a departure from my usual “sugar” BDSM offerings—it’s straight-out kinky, being the romance between a foot fetishist and an upscale shoe designer. But Shelbie and Rick are a match made in some crazy stiletto heaven.

         Giveaway!

A copy of any ebook in my inventory to the cleverest commenter. Jokes and rhymes get an extra point ;)

         Here’s the blurb:

Genre: contemporary kink romance

Shelbie Nathanson resents Rick Saldano's ascension to C.O.O. of her family's shoe company, a job she's wanted all her life. But she can't resist his red-hot, sexy style of lovemaking... one that focuses on her passion: shoes.

Here's a sexy snippet for ya ;)

Rick caught up with Shelbie at the top of the stairs. On the second floor, peace reigned. A cozy sitting room was lit by a fire in the marble hearth. Framed family pictures and a Chanukah menorah cluttered the top of a polished cherry wood piano.

He followed a quiet Shelbie toward the piano. “Is this the family quarters?” he asked.

“Yeah, the downstairs is mostly for show, especially in the winter. It’s warmer up here.”

He touched the brass menorah with a reverent finger, smiling at the four lit candles. “Every year, I wondered about all the Christmas trees. Nathanson is a Jewish name—”

“We have the trees downstairs for the staff party. And now for Ka-ro-la.”

“You don’t like her.”

She picked up a photo set in a wood frame decorated with seashells and fish. “No, I don’t.”

“Is this you and your mom?”

“Uh-huh.”

He took it from her. The picture showed the two of them when Shelbie had been about five, playing at the beach in the waves.

He put an arm around her. “Babe—”

“It’s just that…seeing Karola wearing my mom’s diamonds. My dad got her those when he made his first million.”

He considered. “That sucks.”

“Sure does.”

He cuddled her closer. “What can I do?”

She managed to grin at him. “How about a kiss to make it better?”

“It’s your heart that hurts, isn’t it?”

“Yeah.” She tried not to sniffle.

He unbuttoned her dress halfway down to the waist, and dropped a light kiss on the upper curve of her left breast. “Cute bra,” he said, pleasure in his voice.

“I didn’t know that lingerie was one of your fetishes.”

“Everyone loves black lace. You know, I truly do hope that work won’t come in the way of…of the fun we could have together.” He scoped her body up and down. Especially down. She heard his breath hitch as he looked at her high heeled, strappy shoes.

She grinned at him. “I want to show you something you’ll really love.” Taking his hand, she led him to her suite. Andy Warhol silk-screens covered the outer room walls, coordinating with a bright couch and chairs in a green and heliotrope floral print. But her bedroom was a shrine to her passion: the art of the shoe.

She led Rick inside.

She’d painted a mural on the wall. Heliotrope on pale green, a giant Victorian boot, complete with pointy toe, button hooks and a kitten heel. Her bed was in the shape of a shoe—a Shelbie Sexy Sandal, with the straps made of metal bands painted heliotrope. They crisscrossed high above the mattress. 

Rick gazed around the room, open-mouthed. She could see a tent forming at the front of his pants.

She raised her hands, crossed them at the wrist and grabbed one of the bed’s high metal rails, deliberately displaying herself. “See anything you like?”

He closed his mouth and came toward her, seizing her in a powerful embrace. 

His kiss was hot and ardent, holding nothing back. One hand slid down to her ass and squeezed, while the other reached into her upswept hair. He tangled his fingers in her hair, holding her head at a perfect angle to deepen his kiss.

She responded, slashing her tongue across his, asserting herself. He might be her boss in the boardroom, but they’d be equals in the bedroom. While they kissed, he resumed unbuttoning her dress until he could take it off. She dropped her arms to cooperate, and he pressed her back onto her bed.
