HEAVEN IN HIS ARMS
by Lisa Ann Verge



“He’d meant to take it slow.  He’d intended to kiss his wife and prove that he wanted so much more than just her body—he wanted to bottle her laughter, to kiss her wit, and cradle her determination in his arms.  But he’d ached for her for so long that he just clutched the deerskin blanket and yanked it clear off her. 

There she lay, all rosy flesh on a pelt of fur, naked as the day she was born, her thighs pressed together and her knees raised, her arms crossing over her breasts. His mind conjured up a thousand images of how he could love that body, how he could caress and kiss and suck her into ecstasy, imagining how she would feel and taste.

He dropped to one knee, pried open her thighs and touched her. She bucked and gasped in surprise, then fell back. He took her sex into his palm and felt her grow hot and moist and swollen....”♥

A DANCE OUT OF TIME
by Catherine Ann Greenfeder
Featherweight Press


 “So, you’re out here with only the gulls for company. I hope you didn’t forget me since my last text.”

“Never, and hey, you didn’t respond to my last text.”

She playfully punched him “Is that any way to treat your girlfriend?”


“Been busy, but I cut out to see you as planned. And here I am.”

She leaned toward him, and he kissed her with a fierce intensity that made her toes tingle and her head grow dizzy. No one could kiss like Jake, neither her former boyfriend Antonio nor the ghost of Eric Toomey.♥    © Copyright held by Catherine Greenfeder

50 SHADES OF SEXY: CLAIMED BY THE ROGUE by Hope Tarr

CLAIMED BY THE ROGUE
by Hope Tarr
Samhain Publishing



He crossed an ocean to find her. His secret could prevent him from claiming her heart...

Robert locked his gaze upon Phoebe's. “Were you my wife, there would be no separate bedchambers and skulking through some creaky adjoining dressing closet in the middle of the night. I’d keep you by me, in my bed, and make love to you every morning and every night, and when we were finally too exhausted to do aught but sleep, I’d clasp you to my breast and hold you so close that it would be hard to know where I ended and you began.”

The bloom of heat between Phoebe's thighs confirmed she’d slipped back into dangerous territory, once more in his thrall and separated from both her morals and sound sense. Retreating, she shook her head. “That will serve.”

“Will it?” He slid his gaze over her, reminding her of the matronly nightcap she wore, along with what Belinda never failed to assure her was her least flattering night rail. A faint smile lifted his lips. “Do you always go to bed so…armored?” 

She forced her chin up. “Proper Englishwomen always dress for bed.”

To her chagrin, he chuckled. “The bedchamber is the very last place a woman should worry about being proper.”♥

B FOR BEDPOST
by Lena Hart



“Hmm…” She closed her eyes briefly, enjoying the pleasure of his warm lips against her neck. “You know dancing with you gets me all wet.”

His arms tightened around her and his eyes turned a stormy gray. “Oh, yeah?”

“Yeah…” she murmured, staring down at his lips, trying to hold back a laugh. “You sweat a lot.”

He burst out laughing then pinched her butt, his bright eyes gleaming mischievously. “Well, I can’t help it, when you use all your best moves.”

She gave him what she hoped was a seductive smile and ran her fingers through his hair. “How about I show you what I learned the other night?”

Leaning down, she kissed the tip of his nose, enjoying the growing anticipation of feeling his lips against hers. Though she was eager for him, she continued her teasing and lightly brushed her lips across the edge of his mouth. She held her breath as she slowly brought her lips down to fully taste him...♥

HIGHLAND SCANDAL
by Mageela Troche
Secret Cravings Publishing


“I did not flee. I was doing the proper thing,” he said, sending her hair dancing across her cheek. “You make it hard for me to be an honorable man.”

“Then why are you here now?”

He groaned. The rumble shook through her. “I can’t stay away from you. I love you, and while I can still have you in my life, I plan to steal every bit of time. I shall deal with the heartbreak of losing you forever another time.”

The blood roared through her head. Her vision blurred as she dizzied from his confession. She nuzzled her cheek against his chest. She had to touch him. She rested her hand on his bare thigh. His muscles tightened under her palm. His swirl of dark hairs brushed her palm. She twisted toward him as much she could without toppling off the horse. He clung to her waist and dragged her against him. She claimed his mouth.

The raw, hungry kiss was not chaste. Their tongues melded. He tasted of water and of something that she loved. She buried her hands in his hair. Thankful for his hold, she melded against him. Her breast pressed flat against his firm chest. Any renitence vanished with his words, though it was easy for her to do. Lachlan was the man she loved and to be this close to him, to have her love returned only to reject it—nay, she lacked the willpower.

AT THE MOGUL’S COMMAND
by Anna DePalo



“What’s this about, Cole?”

“Dinner. What else?” He looked bemusedly at the woman who had bedeviled his nights and days. She was in some kind of geometric-print wrap dress that left no curve untouched. My God, the woman was set on torturing him.

“I mean the subtext.”

He raised his gaze to her eyes. “Subtext? You were always a stellar student in English.”

“And you spent your time in the last row, goofing around.”

“Charlotte Brontë wasn’t my thing.”

“She was about the only female who wasn’t.”

“She was dead.”

“Don’t let that stop you.”

He grinned. “That’s what I discovered I liked about you, Danieli. You serve it up straight. Back then, and now.”

“I’m a teacher. It’s a survival skill.”

“I liked you better than you think, you know.”

“Well, that’s something, I suppose. Right up there with being someone’s sixth favorite teacher.” ♥
