As promised (finally) an excerpt from SEDUCED AND ENCHANTED from Ellora's Cave. Available now.
Her expression softened but there was still no smile. “What? You’re not a huge Lord of the Rings fan?”
The gentle teasing in her tone lit his libido as surely as if she’d set a match to a can of gasoline. He wanted her. He wanted her more than he wanted to breathe—but she was still freaked out. He could see it in her eyes, in the slight dilation of her pupils. Still, sex as a tranquilizer wasn’t a bad idea…
He closed his eyes and took a deep breath, trying to rein in his desire. Rosie was probably on overload and he didn’t want to do anything she might regret later.
Her fingers flexed again, the slight movement not triggering any force—except making his blood pressure rise, and his cock along with it.
Letting his gaze drop to her hand, he watched her small, unpainted nails dig into his t-shirt. A memory from last night—the slight pain those short white crescents had inflicted on his balls—made heat burn low in his body.
When he lifted his eyes again, he could tell she was right there with him. Her pretty lips were parted as she drew in a deep breath. Then her tongue darted out to lick her top lip. Her heavy-lidded gaze caught his and, just so he made no mistake, she leaned forward and nipped his bottom lip.
He let the sensuality of that touch unlock the hold he had on his libido. Rio stepped right into her body, molding her to him with both arms around her back and trapping her against his chest. He kissed her hard, forcing her mouth to open under his and letting his tongue plunder the warm cavity beyond.
Rosie moaned, desire and a hint of relief evident in the sound. It was the relief that had him vowing she was going to forget her problems, even if it would only be for a short while. For that, he needed to set some ground rules.
He walked her backward a few steps until she came up against the counter, his mouth still sealed against hers, his tongue sliding against her tongue.
Then he took a step back, watched her hands clench into fists and spun her until she was facing the cabinets.
She gasped, not in fear but in excitement. He knew the difference well and it made him smile. Wrapping his body around her from behind, he pressed his throbbing cock against her ass and rubbed, teasing another groan out of both of them.
“It’s going to be fast and hard, babe,” he whispered in her ear. “If that’s not okay, say so now.”
She shuddered against him, as if the words themselves caressed her. “Do it, Rio.”
