Back in the saddle again…

Hey ya’all. *waving* It’s a busy time of year for everyone, me included. What with the friends dropping in all the time, I’m amazed I’ve gotten all my 2014 writing projects completed.

I’m excited about my latest book set in the Old West. No cover yet, but I’m sharing a snippet from Cur, my erotic historical western coming out next month.



~the devil you don’t want to know…

They were half way home, the stars were out, and the path better lighted than on the nights before. It was impossible for Sara to  ignore Cur’s actions when he cupped her breast and massaged it through her dress.
“You shouldn’t do that,” she told him, but she didn’t slap his hand, or move from his touch and she knew he could feel the way her nipple had pebbled under his thumb’s caress.
Liquid heat pooled between her legs and she stifled a moan when he brushed his whiskers against her cheek. Then he nudged her head to turn her face so he could claim her lips.

Somehow during the kiss, Cur unbuttoned her bodice  and when his hand touched her flesh she couldn’t control her gasp of pleasure.
By the time they reached the willow tree, he had her gown undone to the waist and both breasts exposed to the night air. His mouth roved from her lips to her neck and he chuckled when she trembled and arched into his touch.
“Sara, I think you’re hungry for me.” He didn’t ride on to the house. Instead, he slid down from his horse, carrying her to the ground and giving her no time to gather her wits.
He backed her against the willow tree and lifted her so her breasts were aligned with his mouth.“You’ll like this, sweetheart, I promise.”
Sara protested weakly as he licked the area around her nipples,  sucked on each, and pinched the tips between his teeth, growling in his throat as he pulled and tongued her hard peaks.
She twisted and writhed in his grip,  but not to get away. She wanted more of the pleasure he offered and clutched his head, pushing her flesh against his mouth.
“Are you wet for me?” he mumbled around the nipple he sucked. At the same time he dropped one hand to fumble with her skirts.
Sara knew he’d discover her drawers were damp. She didn’t have time to worry about that when he stroked his finger back and forth across the thin material until he found the rigid nub of nerves at her apex and pinched it.
She jerked and gasped at the sensation that surged through her. With mouth and hand he worked her into a frenzy of lust.
“Ride me,” he growled. Before she could ask what he meant, Cur planted his boot on the tree and lifted her so she straddled his thigh.

She squeezed his leg between hers, and her cunny flexed hungrily as she blatantly rubbed against his denim covered arousal.

When he released her nipple and took her mouth, his tongue followed the rhythm of her swaying hips.

“That’s it sweetheart, use me to find your pleasure,” he muttered. “Don’t hold back, let me feel your honey on my leg when you come.”
When she found her release, a surge of energy flowed through her dazzling all of her senses. She pressed her face against his chest to stifle her moans, but he continued his attentions until a second orgasm pulsed through her. Dazed, she slumped forward.
He lowered her to her feet and held her while she tried to regain her senses. Her climax had been so powerful she felt limp and lethargic.

After he buttoned her bodice and pulled her back into his embrace, they stood in the darkness of the tree. Sara rested her head against his chest as he nuzzled her hair and stroked his hand up and down her spine.
Finally, composed enough to formulate a sentence,  Sara whispered, “I need to get home.”
Without a word, he seated them both on the horse and carried her to her door where he didn’t lose the chance for a last kiss. He took her mouth and didn’t release her until she was breathless and once again aroused.
“Think about that when you dream tonight, Sara,” he told her. “I know I will.”

    Eclipse Heat is one of my all time favorite series. I don’t normally read historical romance but I couldn’t put them down. Can’t wait for Current to release.
