Happy Saturday everyone! It's time for another round of sexy tidbits from the authors at the My Sexy Saturday blog hop. We each share either 7 words, 7 sentences or 7 paragraphs from a published or in-progress work.
River, the third book in my erotic contemporary romance trilogy, Tracking Tor, is finally finished--and today is its release day!
In this scene, Julie feels secure enough to tell Tor she's in love with him.
When she came back into the present, Julie was aware, first, of the heat of their bodies, almost fused with sweat. Her ear was pressed to Tor's chest and she could feel his heartbeat, almost hear its steady, even drumming. The strength of its regular beat made her feel secure, safe, as if he were a large, protective animal. The fact she’d spent the last few days suffering from a terrible pain caused by this same person was all forgotten now. He wouldn’t hurt her any more. He loved her. And she loved him. With a start she realized she hadn’t yet told him.
Does he know? How could he not?
She pulled back to look at his face. His eyes were closed, and he wore a slight smile as he rested. “I love you too. You know that, don’t you?”
His eyes shot open and he smiled. “Yeah. I think I figured that out a few days ago.”
“In Dahab. In the hot tub.”
Julie thought back to that night, the night he’d told her about his failed relationship back in Denmark, and his floundering business. “How did you know?”
He shrugged. “I guess it was just something about the way you looked at me. The way you responded to me. It was pretty intense, if I remember correctly.” He moved his hand down along her side, over her hip and thigh. “Everything we did was charged, somehow. I don’t know how else to explain it.”
She leaned up and kissed him with all the tenderness she could express. “Yes. It was sort of charged with something, wasn’t it? But I think I fell in love with you long before that.”
“Yeah. Like the moment I first set eyes on you.” She laughed and rolled on top of his big body, pressing her nose on his. “I thought I was hallucinating when I saw you walk up to your bike, throw your leg over it and drive off into the desert. You were the best thing I’d ever seen, and you disappeared right in front of my eyes.”
