X - XOXO - Romantic Teaser




Most of my posts in this blog series contained exciting excerpts. And no wonder…we’re talking about disasters and crimes, but these books are romantic-suspense. So, for the readers who enjoy the romance, this post is just for you.


Here is a special romantic teaser from SEISMIC CRIMES:

He stepped into the shower and stood a breath away from her body. “I wanted to thank you.” She swallowed. The bar of soap forgotten between her hands. “You already did. Outside the police department.”

His eyes bore into her. “Not like this.” He dipped his head and took her lips. His touch electrified her, creating a whirlpool in the pit of her stomach. She parted her lips for him, and he immediately filled the space to explore her mouth.

The first time they kissed, Beth had tasted the danger inside Donovan. It was toxic and delicious. She was able to shackle her desires then, but he persuaded her to unleash them. She sank into his passion, faster than quicksand. She had almost regretted the act and thought it had poisoned her judgment, putting her in greater risk. Now that she knew he was good, and after what they had been through together, she could no longer deny her clawing needs.

Donovan eased back. She looked at him, hungry and aching. He took the bar of soap from her and slicked his hands with suds. With a soft touch, he ran his hands over the healing gash on her chest. The contact both stung and aroused her. She closed her eyes as his hands left a sheet of bubbles up her neck, down her arms, and across her abdomen.

*Screeeech* Sorry to put the brakes on this steamy (and I mean that) scene. If you want more, you’ll have to get Seismic Crimes. *wink*

  2. Nothing wrong with some romance in any book type, as it is true to life. Sure set the scene for more to come too.

  3. Steamy scene! HA-HA Exactly!
    Nice job on the 'steamy' description.
    This is one of the things I have a hard time trying to describe in writing; romantic moments.
    Sure, I'm a romantic person, but writing abut it, somehow eludes me.

  6. Thank goodness this is not one of the top blogs visited by children. That was quite a steamy scene and loved how you added in that injury without losing any of the sexy sexy going ons in the excerpt. ;)

  9. Is it bad that I read "sheet of bubbles" and all I could imagine was just ridiculous amounts of bubble-bath suds?

  10. I didn't think I was much of a romance person, but since blogging, romantic suspense has become one of my favorite genres. Seems a little bit of something extra with my murder and mystery adds a bit of spice.
