I’ve joined a blog hop of sorts called “My Sexy Saturday.” I’m going to post a sexy scene from one of my available books.
Then I’ll post the list of blogs with links that are also participating to increase your fun.
Today the scene is from Vampire King of New York, my 90,000 word novel which is the first book in the Arnhem Knights of New York series.
When next she opened her eyes, Evelyn found the source of the warm protection. Fully clothed, Max had lain beside her and hugged her. She rested her head on his chest, and no matter how much she didn’t want to admit it, she enjoyed feeling his arms around her. Evelyn had too many bad memories of Jack, and so far Max was nothing like him. Even though the drapes were drawn, the lack of light around the edges revealed it was still night. She didn’t want to think about the time. It made sense that she was exhausted. Yawning, she fell back asleep.
The dream that took her was different from the others A new chapter to a very old story. She stood atop a huge cliff gazing down into the depths of the fjord. Every crevice of blue and white delighted her, as if a sword had cut deep into the earth and found it could not bleed.
“My ancestors know each name.” Max was different; his Armani suit exchanged for the Norse warrior’s garb. His hair longer, the beard she enjoyed pulling when she teased him.
“They have names?”
“This one is the Cutter. He was cursed to stand eternally to protect others, because in life he failed to protect those he loved most.” Her Viking husband dragged her against him from behind. They fell backward into the soft grass of the high plateau facing up and gazed into the blue summer sky.
“Svenna, you are my heart and the breath of my life. Before I found you, I did not see the beauty in the world around me.”
She chuckled and leaned on her side facing him. “What will happen to you when I die? You will mourn me briefly and take another wife like other men do?”
He leaned on his side to face her. “No. You are my one true star. When you are gone, I will be plunged into eternal night, hopeless without love.”
She flung her arms around him and planted a hard kiss on his lips. Then she pushed him away laughing. “Oh, Reynard, you make me laugh with your pretty words.”
“You doubt me, woman!” He grabbed her and held her close. His lips brushed over hers, sending a thousand stars dancing through her veins, nipping her fingers and toes. The sheer excitement her body experienced every time he touched her made her think he might be the son of a god. She was certain he harbored some wonderful power.
He tugged on the new lacing on the collar of her blue gown.
“Someone will see us.”
“No, they will not. Such a high lonely place is only visited by the gods, and our passion will please them.” He bit on the lacing. “What is this bit of foolishness?”
“I thought it would make the dress pretty.”
He pulled it with his teeth until it was loose. Then he tugged the long tunic dress over her head. It floated down among the white and purple flowers in the grass. He slid his own coarse shirt and pants off, and they lay crumpled beside her dress.
The warm sweet air caressed her breasts. All at once, Svenna was excited and shocked, her nipples becoming tight peaks. She covered her breasts with her hands.
;) Vampire King of New York is currently only available at Kindle http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00D70NC6O .
However, there is a contest over at Wicked Readings by Tawania where I’m offering the choice between a Kindle ebook or a PDF ebook. http://wickedreadingsbytawania.blogspot.com/search?q=Vampire+King+of+New+York The contest ends on Aug. 12th.
Now for the upcoming starry night! It’s called the Perseid Meteor Shower, and if it doesn’t rain we have in for one heck of a show. I’ve read it could be 50 shooting stars and hour. “Stargazers with clear skies are encouraged to seek out the meteor display during the pre-dawn hours of Monday and again during the early morning hours of Tuesday (Aug. 13). At these times, the absence of bright moonlight can maximize your chances of spotting a meteor. http://www.space.com/22311-promising-perseid-meteor-shower-will-peak-soon.html ”
The best gazing is after the moon goes down. Personally I was going to start watching after midnight. Remember being wrapped in a blanket and sipping hot cocoa is part of the fun of counting meteors or shooting stars. Visit Space.com or http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/asteroidwatch/meteor.cfm for more information on the how to watch to the best advantage.
