Today's hot kiss is from my debut novel "Bonded by Crimson" available in all formats at Black Opal Books, Amazon, Smashwords, Barnes & Noble Kobobooks and All Romance eBooks
Their feet padded on the park’s narrow paths as they strolled along without saying a word. She cast him a few glances, hoping he’d break the silence. But he only smiled and squeezed her hand. They reached the park’s cement wall. There was not a soul about. The entrance stood a few steps to their left, illuminated by two dim lights. With a hard pull of his hand, he swung her around to face him.
He caressed her hair. She trembled, fearing he would kiss her, terrified he wouldn't.
She stared into his eyes. Deep pools of blue, they held hers captive, weaving a spell of desire. This ancient park, this immortal man, the atmosphere, all combined to surround her heart with magic.
“To hell with the pretenses,” he growled, cupped her face in his hands, and crushed his lips to hers.
All he could think was thank God, his lips were on Kate’s at last. The way they glistened each time she smiled, frowned, or talked had had Matthias on the edge for over two months. Another minute of watching those rosy buds taunt him and he would have exploded. She tasted even better than he’d imagined—minty, yet honey sweet. He didn't want this moment or this night to end. If he let her go, would he ever see her again? Afraid the spell would end with the kiss, he held onto her longer than he had intended to. He ran his tongue along her lips, parting them enough to slide its tip inside her warm mouth. She surrendered under his coaxing, and he deepened the kiss. Their tongues danced in slow motion. She moaned once, sending a whole new shiver down his spine, straight to his groin. A loud gasp escaped from her throat and echoed among trees when he pulled back.
“Forgive me.” He lowered his hands when her flushed skin warmed his palms. Afraid of her reaction to his foolish advance, he held his breath.
She pressed her hand on her chest, drew a long breath, and licked her lips. “Nothing to forgive.” The blush in her cheeks intensified.
A load lifted from his mind. Her reaction confirmed his suspicions that she had wanted the kiss as much as he did. The yearning to pull her in his embrace was unbearable, but she squared her shoulders and exhaled loudly. Caressing her elbow, he turned toward the exit. “Do you still need that drink?”
Love isn't in the cards for her…
After her short failed marriage, Kate tries to rebuild her life and takes a position as a nanny to three small boys. She quickly grows to love them, but their father, terrifies her, while igniting a passion she didn't know she possessed. Disturbed by his distant manner with his sons, Kate struggles to make him more involved in the boys’ daily lives. Her efforts are mysteriously supported by an entity that cannot really exist. Or can she? And if she does exist, is she really trying to help Kate, or just take over her body?
