Love Scene Blog Hop! with an extra from TAKING CHANCES

Click to see the main blog hop page at the Evernight blogHello! Welcome to Evernight’s Love Scene Blog Hop. You’ll find a love scene at each stop in the hop. There are prizes to win too.

I’m in the middle of finishing the second book in my LOVE PROJECTS series and my thoughts often drift to the couple from the first in the series, Lydia and Jake from TAKING CHANCES. The following scene came to me and I hope you enjoy it. I sure had fun writing it. You’ll have to check out the second in the series once it’s published to learn what Lydia has to say to her girlfriends about what happened in this sexy Love Scene. So much fun. Enjoy.


Lydia removed all her clothes and stepped into the lukewarm shower. She hadn’t second guessed her decision to get a tattoo until her toe touched the not hot enough water, but she’d always wanted ink and she wanted nothing more than to show off her commitment to the Dom she loved.

After carefully removing the wet bandage, she cleaned the area. The tattoo artist better be right about the cold water because she felt like a cat who was asking for a rocking chair to smoosh its tail. She angled her body as far out of the spray as possible and turned up the cold water.

She counted faster than she should have and turned off the shower. “Shit. That was stupid.” She slammed the shower door back and reached for her towel, but it wasn’t there.

“I agree. That was stupid.”

“Jake!” She pressed her hand over her heart, thankfully covering the tattoo. “When did you come in?” She didn’t ask for the towel, knowing he wouldn’t release it from his clenched fists.

“Why the cold shower?” He stepped closer and reached for her hand.

Instinctively she reached for him.

“What did you do?” He helped her out of the show and then stopped her forward movement. After throwing the towel on the counter, he got down on one knee and caressed the skin around her new permanent mark.

“Surprise. Do you like it?” She trembled from his touch and the goose bumps covering her skin.

“It’s sexy.” He kissed her breast gently and looked up into her eyes. “I love it and I love you.”

She pressed her palm to his cheek. “I love you.”

He reached for the towel, pressed it over her ink, and then picked her up and carried her to the center of their bed. She reached for the towel, but he threw it across the room.

“Naughty girls who do things to their bodies without their Doms approval don’t get the luxury of warm towels.” He crawled between her legs and kissed a trail from her navel to her left breast. “Your work here is done. I’m taking charge of your heat. Now, be a good pet and reach for the head board and hang on.”

Once she grabbed the rungs of the headboard, she gasped as he took her nipple into his mouth. The sweet pull of his greedy mouth sent warmth in a direct path to her pussy and out over her needy body. He pushed her breast up and flicked her nipple with his tongue. She looked down and found his gaze trained on her. The passion and love returning to her opened her heart and her legs.

“My mind is filling with all kinds of punishments for you.” He traced a circle around the new tattoo and then around her nipple, but all I can think about right now is getting my cock deep inside you.”

“Oh yes, please. Please, fuck me, Sir.”

A smile spread wide across his face. “You’ve gotten a hell of a lot better at telling me what you want. I’ll have to reward that behavior.” He crawled up the bed and hovered over her. “You know, I don’t think it’s good to cover a new tattoo.” He nibbled on her ear lobe. “You’ll have to stay in the nude all weekend.”

“All weekend.” A shiver rolled through her, but heat followed when a long list of wicked things entered her thoughts.

“It’s the gift that keeps on giving.” The tip of his cock teased at her entrance. “Are you ready my love?”

“I’m always ready for you, Sir.” She pulled at the headboard and sucked in a breath as he filled her.

“You were ready for me. You’re so hot and wet.” He pulled out and pushed right back in. The bed rocked under them as he worked into a fierce rhythm.

“Reach for that orgasm now my love, because it’s the last one you’ll be getting for a while.”

“What! Oh.” She pulled her knees back and he thrust his hard cock into her again. He’d been pushing her farther and farther lately. She wondered how far she’d fly this weekend once he finally let her orgasm break free. His cock stroked her sweet spot. Thankfully, she didn’t have to worry about holding back right now. “It’s coming.”

He angled her hips and pushed in as her orgasm spread in bright pulses all over her body. His strokes became slower, but stronger and in no time he was grunting his pleasure and she rolled right into another round of tingling bliss.

She wrapped her arms around his neck and pulled him down. He pushed his tongue into her mouth and claimed her all over again.

When he pulled from her body, they snuggled into a tight embrace. Warm comfort surrounded them and left her wondering what chance she would take next for the man who had captured her body and soul.


I hope you enjoyed that. Lydia and Jake are two of my favorite characters ever. Their story is a powerful one of trust and learning to take chances for love. Below you’ll find more information about this sexy story.


takingchances1mLydia’s father walked away from her when she was eight. She’s struggled to not let him affect her, but fears she wasn’t loveable enough to make him stay. Jake wants to love one woman, but after scaring the last woman he met outside of the club, he doubts he deserves the right. She protects her heart by sticking with her fantasies and he lives by a set of rules that excludes women who choose a vanilla lifestyle.

The two will be kept in a conference room working together until their special project is complete. If Lydia and Jake hold tight to their bland lives, they’ll always yearn for love that is out of reach. Together they find common ground, passion, and a reason to take chances. Once they discover the grand possibilities of the love they desire, they find themselves in the very place they tried never to be again, facing unguaranteed loved.

5 Star Review: “Taking Chances, is a must read for anyone who wants a great story, well written, smoking hot smexy scenes and an oh so hot hero.”

  1. Hi,
    well i myself am partial to roses (i have 5 of them :D), my favorite is a double set of blooms.the one that is in full bloom in the most stunning shades of lilac that fades into a purple that looks almost black and because everybody,in this case a woman, has been thru tough times and heartbreak there is a single strand of barbed wire that wraps around just the rose in bloom ,just under the tip of the wire is a drop of blood and it looks almost as if the second rose is being born from it. the second is just starting to unfurl and is the same shade of pink as you see in the sunset, that almost breathtaking hot pink/salmon/orange-ish color. the basic design is something like the one on the link below just need the right colors and a piece of barbed wire. 🙂*website*wp-includes*Text*rose-tattoos-designs-for-women-505.jpg/

  2. I think the tattoo should be something sexy and feminine as well as something that is kinky. I think it would be pretty to have something like a sunflower or sunflowers that are entwined with barbwire that spells out his initials.
    Anyways, the excerpt was awesome! 😀
    Thanks for the chance to win!
