July 6’th: Christmas in July! Blog Event. (Participating Bloggers listed to the right)
Welcome back! Sorry I’m a bit late with today’s post (Having internet woes, sigh) Again, thanks to all that popped in yesterday and welcome to anyone new today. So, on to the good stuff. The winner from yesterday’s contest is… Jane! Congratulations, Jane! Please contact me at Skypurington@live.com to collect your prize.
Today’s excerpt is the last and from a story I wrote recently called Eve of Revelation. It’s brand new, not even published yet (finger’s crossed that it gets there!) In this one I headed in a whole new direction. Why you ask? It’s a vampire story! Be forewarned, it’s a bit hotter than the other excerpts. All right, for a chance to win today’s prize, a $5 Gift Certificate to The Wild Rose Press, leave a comment telling me what her scent is.
Don’t forget to check back tomorrow to see who the winner is!
Gabriel moved fast and caught her. Why had the woman worn heels? He smiled, grateful for her poor taste in nautical attire. Wrapping one arm around her he moved her back against the railing. He couldn’t contain the tremors that rocked him.
At long last, she was here.
He inhaled… Lilac. Always Lilac. Her scent, her perfection. He ran his tongue over his lips and breathed in the scent of her neck. The pulse of her heartbeat, fast for him, aroused for him. How he had waited for this. Needed it, her, only her. He flicked his tongue, ran it up her neck and before she could speak, seized her lips. Heated, ready, she met him with more vigor than he thought possible. He dove into her mouth, tongue swooping, searching, wanting.
Could she remember? Did she? He ran his hands the length of her, cupped her buttocks, and pulled her lower half against him. Let her feel his need. This was Heaven, his Heaven, his one light in eternal darkness. Teeth, lips, blood mixed, her blood, like molten silver and sugared wine.
Like a slap in the face.
He pulled back and shook his head, searched for air. Lust reddened his vision. She reddened his vision. Nikki. Nicole.
Thanks for playing!
