A Kiss Worth Waiting For

Six Sentence Sunday 7-29-2012

Hey, Everyone ~ are you enjoying your Sunday?

I’ve had a wonderfully relaxing week indulging in some much deserved vacation time. Now, with my fun-in-the-sun days winding down, I have the giddy enjoyment of today’s Six Sentence Sunday round to keep me happily distracted. Hopefully, I’m holding your interest with WEATHERING ROCK my time travel/paranormal romance releasing on October 8th. For all the delightful details, tidbits on my charismatic characters and a bodacious book trailer click here. So, um, in case it wasn’t transparently obvious from that last sentence, I’m a wee bit excited about the release. 😀

For those of you who have been following along, Caleb DeCardian (hunky werewolf and former colonel during the Civil War, now residing in modern day America) and Arianna Hart (smart and sexy teacher of American history who is doing her best not to succumb to Caleb’s incredible charms :)) are having dinner together on the veranda at Weathering Rock. There’s fine china, candlelight, wine and moonlight. Dinner is over, the chit-chat has grown more intimate and Arianna suddenly finds herself in Caleb’s arms. I’ve skipped ahead a bit to reach that point but, romantic that I am, it was time to share a kiss worth waiting for:


Her body betrayed her, enjoying the sheer hedonistic pressure of his mouth on hers, the faint taste of wine clinging to his lips. She’d be lying if she said she hadn’t wanted this, secretly hoping he would try to kiss her. She’d dreamed about it, imagined it more than once.

Emboldened, he wrapped an arm around her waist and deepened the kiss, trapping her against the porch railing. For one blissful moment, she knew only raw heat, the sensual intimacy of his tongue twining with hers, a rush of giddy pleasure that left her senseless, blindly clinging to him. His body was deliciously lean muscle, strength and corded sinew crushed against her softer curves.


As always, thank you to everyone who drops by and comments. I love hearing from you, and reading what everyone else is posting. For a complete list of participating authors, be sure to check out the Six Sentence Sunday website and get ’em while they’re hot!

  3. Very steamy, Mae! Wonderful writing! You put me into the scene every time and I can feel the emotions the characters feel. Speaking of “sensory, erotic” that’s it right there. 😉
