First off, thanks to RRT for letting me stop by! I’m excited to talk about “A Little More Scandal.” At just $.99… Take a chance! This is an adorable intro to my Christies series of Victorian romances.
It’s one of Pocket’s first original digital releases. You can read more about those fabulous new originals here [http://pages.simonandschuster.com/pocketstar/a-little-more-scandal], including an extended excerpt of “A Little More Scandal.”
But there. Aside from the blurb, that’s my sales pitch. On to the kissing! We’re romance readers. Kissing is like oxygen. Kissing is a many-splendored thing. Kissing lifts us up where we belong! (Any fans of Moulin Rouge! in the house?)
Here’s an exclusive excerpt…
William crisscrossed his arms behind her back and her bum, then lifted her straight up from the chair. She gasped against his cheek. Any momentary shock dissipated as she sank more deeply into his embrace.
Catrin bit his lower lip, her smile returning in force. “So strong,” she whispered against his wet mouth.
His vision wavered at the edges. He was trying to intimidate her, not impress her, yet her breathy compliment thrilled him with a hard jolt. Yes, he was strong. He had forged himself into a man no one would challenge. Yet this tiny, curious woman shoved at his control with more determination every time.
He wanted to shove right back.
Far, far too much fabric separated her thighs from his hands, but her bodice was wide and generous in its display of creamy skin. He stripped off her bonnet with one quick flick of ribbon, then laid her back along the desk. No softness or sweetness now as he suckled kisses down her throat and across to her delicate shoulder. Catrin’s intake of breath urged him without words, as did her squirming, gently thrusting hips.
William adjusted their position so that she stretched flat against the unforgiving mahogany. His legs tucked against the yards of satin between hers. He bowed up and over her body, and pressed her shoulders back against the ink blotter. She arched into his hold, thrusting up her bosom.
And he feasted.
I bet you can guess what happens after that, but wouldn’t it be more fun to read it for yourself? I hope you do!
