Happy Valentine’s Day to all of my readers and fans…I hope you’re having a day filled with love and romance.
In honor of the day, I thought I’d share a snippet of one of my favorite scenes from The Vampire Destiny Series. It’s from Illusion, Book 2 of the series. I have to add this warning…this book is suitable only for those 18 and older and contains graphic language and adult situations.
If that disclaimer didn’t scare you away, here is my Valentine’s gift to you….
Offering him a smile as my only response, my hands drifted from his hair, over the sides of his face and ran across his broad shoulders. I pushed his charcoal gray suit jacket over his shoulders and loosened his black silk tie, wrapping it around my hand and yanking it from the collar of his shirt.
“No.” He stood, his massive body looming over me. He raised a single blond eyebrow as he reached for the bottom of his shirt, simply ripping it up the middle, causing the buttons to scatter across the room. He shrugged out of the shirt, letting it fall over his shoulders and the length of his long arms. He made a production of unbuttoning and unzipping his pants, sliding the over his narrow hips and legs. He stood naked before me, six-foot-four inches of perfection. A sigh escaped from my mouth as my eyes traveled over the broad expanse of his pale, muscular chest and down his stomach. His hard cock was begging for my attention and I leaned forward, anxiously licking my lips.
“No,” Stefan said again. He gripped my arms softly and brought me to my feet, unzipping the back of my dress in a single, swift movement, tugging my arms from the sleeves and watching as it fell around my feet. His lips quirked and his fingers were gentle and adoring as they brushed over the satin cups of my bra, his blue eyes meeting mine as they circled my nipples. I stepped closer to him and he bent to nestle his face between the valley of my breasts, his breath warm and his tongue wet as it snaked out to lick across my skin.
Closing my eyes to the sensation of his mouth, I felt his fingers drift to my back, swiftly unfastening the hooks on my bra and flicking it away. He turned me around and his large, muscular arms wrapped around my waist. His lips feathered kisses down the side of my neck, the stubble from his face scraping against my skin. Everywhere he touched me, it felt as if an electrical current pulsed beneath my skin, his body like silk-covered steel, smooth against my own. The pads of his fingers caressed my breasts and ghosted across my nipples, which had pebbled into hard peaks from his caresses.
“Stefan… please,” I mumbled, whimpering from the powerful response his hands were having on my body. “I need you.”
“Always impatient,” he admonished between kisses to my shoulders. His tongue laved over the crook of neck, my legs trembling as I waited for the sting of his fangs. He chuckled against my skin and moved to nuzzle his nose in the tangle of my hair. Stefan was enjoying every moment of this. He was playing me like an instrument, smug and satisfied that he knew exactly how to touch me to make me cry out and writhe against him.
He nudged me forward, guiding me down to the bed on my hands and knees. His large hand spread across my back, pushing my breasts against the coolness of the sheet, my elbows supporting the majority of my weight. His fingertips trailed over the arch of my back to fondle my ass, his hands soft and firm as they ripped my panties away and moved between my thighs, spreading them apart. I was fully exposed and completely at his mercy.
He inhaled a sharp, unnecessary breath. “You look like a goddess, spread out for me like this. Only for me.”
His husky, lilting words washed over me like liquid fire and my own breathing hitched. His fingers played against my clit and slipped through my swollen folds, spreading the wetness with his finger. Letting out a wanton moan, I pressed my ass back towards him and his into his hand.
Another moan fell from my lips as I pushed back harder. “Oh god, yes.”
Ascend, Book 4 will be out in late May of 2013. Tempted (The Dark Hart Chronicles Book 1) will be out in April of 2013.
Have the happiest of Valentine’s Day…from me to you!
Much love to you,
