My Sexy Saturday -Why Me?- a snippet from Desire Unexpected, Assassins and Sweethearts, book 1 #MySexySaturday

My Sexy Saturday - click to see their site

Hello! Welcome back to My Sexy Saturday. Today, I’m sharing once again from Desire Unexpected. It’s the first book in my Assassins and Sweethearts Series. I’m currently working on book two and I’m having so much fun visiting this world again.

These 7 paragraphs are from chapter two. Ethan has just shared something cryptic about his company. The first line is Nadia’s 🙂 Enjoy!


“That makes no sense.”

“I promised one thing, not that it would make sense.” He sat and flashed her a smile full of charm. “Meet me again tomorrow?”

“Okay.” She narrowed her eyes wanting to change the subject and ask him a question burning a hole through her thoughts. “Why me? And please give me an answer that’s not so cryptic.”

“I like you, Nadia.” He set aside his water bottle. “I like how I feel when I’m around you. I had a feeling we’d get along after yesterday.”

“I like you too.” A cozy glow wrapped around her.

“I must warn you though. There’s a lot about my life I can’t share with you.” His finger traced a groove in the table. “If we can keep the rest of the world out, I want to spend more time with you.”

His request for privacy didn’t surprise her. It was the one thing she knew well about him. There were some things he just didn’t share and at the moment she no longer cared to know the reasons. She wanted to spend time with him for as long as she could.

Together, they find the kind of pleasure that could keep them satisfied for a lifetime. Her love may be the key to putting both of their lives back on track, but to what end?

My Sexy Saturday -One Giant Temptation- a snippet from Desire Unexpected, Assassins and Sweethearts, book 1 #MySexySaturday

My Sexy Saturday - click to see their site

Hello! Welcome back to My Sexy Saturday. Today, I’m sharing from Desire Unexpected. It’s the first book in my Assassins and Sweethearts Series. I’m currently working on book two and I’m having so much fun visiting this world again.

These 7 paragraphs are from the beginning of the story. Our hero has to cancel their plans and has just promised to make it up to her. Oh and they are currently hiding in a storage closet. 🙂 Enjoy!


“You don’t have to say that.” She pressed her lips together, wishing she could take back the lie. She wanted much more from him than that. Right now in this tiny room, she wanted him to wrap his arms around her and tell her he’d miss her, confess what she meant to him. “That’s not the deal we made.” She fought her desire to change all the rules.

“I know, but I want to. I’ll call when I’m back in town.” His gaze seemed to linger on her lips. Maybe he wanted to change the rules too.

“I’d like that.” She straightened her spine and took a step toward him, eliminating the empty space. He hadn’t opened the door by much, but she wanted to throw it open. “Why don’t you touch me?”

“I touch you all the time.” He angled his head, allowing her to come a little closer.

“Not really,” she whispered. Her focus zeroed in on his luscious mouth. She was certain if she reached out her tongue, she could drag it across his lips. The heat coming from his body and his divine manly scent called her forward. Her heart beat like a wild thing, awakening her pussy and her growing need for more. “You don’t really touch me.”

He took a step toward her and she stumbled back a step, finding the door. His hard body pushed her flat while he raised his arms to brace himself around her. “I’m beginning not to trust myself when I’m around you.” He brushed his nose along hers and his hard cock pressed against her belly. “You’re one giant temptation. I should have known better than to indulge my curiosity.”

#SatSpanks -Twenty Swats Will Do- a snippet from Desire Unexpected

click here to visit the Saturday Spankings blogHello! Happy Saturday Spankings! 🙂

Last Week: I’ve been sharing little snippets from the scene after Nadia poked her nose a little too deep into Ethan’s business, putting them both in a difficult position.

This Week: I’ve skipped a little bit more. You’ll have to read the story to find out how Ethan gets her naked and bent over his desk, but here’s what happens next. Enjoy!

Many of her fantasies involving Ethan had her clothes coming off, but nothing like this. This was no dream.

“What are you going to do?”

“I’m going to give you a spanking.” He smacked her on the ass. “I think twenty swats will do, don’t you think?” He smacked her ass again. “Is that acceptable?”

Mid Week Tease -He Wants Her- a snippet from Desire Unexpected

click to see all the Mid Week Teases here at SJsWelcome to hump day my friends. Thank you to the amazing Sandra Bunino for bringing us together.

Last week I shared a sexy little tease.

This Week I skipped over a sexy part to give you this tease. Enjoy!

______________

“I’ll be right back.”

“Where are you going?” Need coiled in her belly, but her body had never been so relaxed.

“Just fetching a condom which is about all the time I’m willing to give you to recover. I need to get inside you.” Once he had the condom on, he pulled her hips down and he shifted his weight over her.

She raised her arms over her head and grasped the bracelet he’d given her. It grounded her in the moment and reminded her of the choices that had led to this moment. No amount of tugging and pulling could get her to forget about Ethan.

From the beginning, he’d been a fantasy, a pipe dream. She never would have guessed how much they’d have in common or how comfortable she’d feel talking with him.

Her infatuation might have begun many weeks ago, but now there was something between them. It was evident in his actions, not just hers. He wanted this. He wanted her.

“Oh, Ethan.”

#SatSpanks -She Can’t Talk Her Way Out- a snippet from Desire Unexpected

click here to visit the Saturday Spankings blogHello! Happy Saturday Spankings! 🙂 I’m going to share a few more snippets from Desire Unexpected before I move on to my next release.

Last Week: I shared a bit of a turning point. Nadia has poked her nose a little too deep into Ethan’s business, putting them both in a difficult position. It’s time they both faced what’s really happening between them.

This Week: I’m sharing a bit more from this same scene. Enjoy!

“You do know you can’t talk your way out of this punishment. We’ll both feel better once it’s done.” He claimed her lips again, pushing his way inside.

She opened for him and dragged her tongue along his, losing herself in the desire that wouldn’t let her go. He tasted like pine and she breathed in his musky scent. Everything with him was decadence and it was all leading to her death or at least her broken heart. She needed to find a way to escape and instead she leaned into him.

Mid Week Tease -He Keeps His Promise- a snippet from Desire Unexpected

click to see all the Mid Week Teases here at SJsWelcome to hump day my friends. Thank you to the talented, Sandra Bunino for bringing us together.

Since Desire Unexpected, Assassins and Sweethearts book 1) released on April 9th, I’ve been out and about sharing all kinds of things. Be sure to visit my Appearances tab for the links.

Last week I was at Lynn Burke’s with a sexy little teaser where Nadia declares what she wants.

This Week I’m sharing in two places. 😀 This little snippet takes place shortly after last week and the sexy tease I’ve shared with the lovely Carlene Love Flores takes place shortly after this one. Enjoy!

______________

“I’ve seen many beautiful things in my life, but nothing compares to the likes of you.” He took his tie from his pile of clothes, tugged his belt from the loops on his discarded pants, and took a step toward her. “Where’s your bed?”

She reached out and pointed toward the hallway, unable to add her voice to the directions.

“Look your fill. I certainly intend to.” He handed her the tie and belt and then picked her up, hauled her on top of his shoulder, and smacked her ass.

“Ouch!”

“I keep my promises.”

click here to visit the Saturday Spankings blogHello! Happy Saturday Spankings! 🙂 I’m going to share a few more snippets from Desire Unexpected before I move on to my next release.

Last Week: I shared Ethan’s response after Nadia asked, “Why don’t you touch me?”

This Week: I’ve skipped all kinds of good parts. Sorry, no spoilers. 🙂 But it has brought us to this pivotal scene which I’m going to give you a couple of snippets from. Nadia has poked her nose a little too deep into Ethan’s business, putting them both in a difficult position. Enjoy!

She pushed against him and he didn’t budge.

He ran the pad of his thumb along her bottom lip and she trembled.

“Don’t.”

“You’re one giant temptation.” He swiped the tip of his nose across hers. “The more I know, the more I taste, the more I want you.” His lips hovered just over hers. “I’ve frightened you and should be allowing you to run from me, but I can’t. I can’t let you go.”

My Sexy Saturday -The Sexy CEO- a snippet from Desire Unexpected

My Sexy Saturday - click to see their site

Hello! Welcome back to My Sexy Saturday. Today, I bring you the sexy CEO from my brand new release, Desire Unexpected (Assassins and Sweethearts Book 1).

These 7 paragraphs are from the first few pages. Nadia and Ethan have just bumped into each other at the Art Institute. In this scene, Nadia discovers Ethan has followed her to the exhibit. Enjoy!

“What was that?”

She whipped around to find Tall and Sexy next to her. She clasped a hand over her chest and rubbed. Her fingers moved back and forth over her pulse point in an attempt to quiet the storm raging inside.

He stepped further into the blue light shining through the windows. He took her breath away. Strength and power radiated from his long lean stature, steady shoulders, and crisp look. His hair was neatly trimmed, right down to his tidy sideburns. The temptation to slide her finger down one and across the chiseled edge of his chin was too much. She shook herself.

“What were you saying?” He walked around her and stopped closer than should have been appropriate. Not knowing where to look, she concentrated on his multicolored eyes. Similar to the windows, different colors stood out. They were magnificent. Breathing in his delicious musky scent tipped her over the edge and her pussy tingled with warmth.

“They moved them because they were afraid the renovations would create harmful vibrations.” She lowered her gaze. “The decision to clean them was made after they took the panels apart.” She picked at the hem of her shirt.

“Interesting.” He tucked his hands in his pockets. “I’ve never met anyone who’s known the truth.”

“Me either.” An easy smile settled in. Seconds ticked by as they stood toe to toe.

SatSpanks -Come A Little Closer- a snippet from Desire Unexpected

click here to visit the Saturday Spankings blogHello! Happy Saturday Spankings! 🙂 Desire Unexpected is here! It released on Thursday. 🙂

Last WeekI shared a bit of a scene when Nadia wants to change everything about their arrangement.

This Week: I’ve skipped nothing. Nadia’s just asked, “Why don’t you touch me?” Here’s Ethan’s response. Enjoy!

“I touch you all the time.” He angled his head, allowing her to come a little closer.

“Not really,” she whispered. Her focus zeroed in on his luscious mouth. She was certain if she reached out her tongue, she could drag it across his lips. The heat coming from his body and his divine manly scent called her forward. Her heart beat like a wild thing, awakening her pussy and her growing need for more. “You don’t really touch me.”

He took a step toward her and she stumbled back a step, finding the door.

Ethan3EXCERPT:

“It reminded me of you.” He shook his head. “It’s just from the museum gift shop. I wanted to give you something for putting up with me. I hope you like it.”

“Thank you.” She took the little box and sat on her battered sofa. “Please, take a seat.”

He sat next to her, but kept to the edge, confirming there was nothing relaxed about this visit.

After slipping the green ribbon from the box, she pulled off the lid and pushed back the tissue paper, revealing the item she’d so long desired. Her heart raced and she scooted closer to him. He had no idea what he’d done. Her secret crush giving her the piece of jewelry she’d long desired was incredibly perfect. Neither were really her style and she wanted them all the same. She looked at him with heavy tears stinging her eyes. Brushing the box from her lap, she slipped the bracelet onto her wrist.

“Thank you.”

“You’re welcome. I’ve enjoyed our time together.” He brushed away the tear that had rolled down her cheek and cupped her chin.

“Don’t say that like it’s over.” She took a hold of his wrist and pulled it into her lap. “It’s not, right?” Panic raced over her. If he wanted to leave, she wouldn’t stop him, but her whole body hurt with wanting him to stay.

“I’m no good for you, Nadia.” He took hold of her hands. “You deserve a nice man with an uncomplicated life. I can’t give you what you need.”

“That’s not true.” She put her fingers to his lips. “Don’t.”

He took a hold of her shirt, not pulling her closer, just squeezing the fabric in his fist.

“I don’t know what’s going on with you.” She brought her touch back to his hands, trying to ease the pressure. “I just know the only time I feel alive is when I’m with you. You’re on my mind constantly.” She lowered her gaze, losing her courage by the second. “There’s something between us and I want to explore it. I want to know what drives you insane with need. Don’t you want me too?”

“Shit, Nadia, I haven’t stopped thinking about you since the first day at the windows.” He let her go and pulled out of her reach to slip around to the other side of the couch with his back to her. “I want things from you that I’m certain would frighten you.”

“I doubt that.” Knowing she had to make her move now or risk losing him forever, she pulled her shirt over her head and tugged off her sweatpants, tossing them both on the chair. “Do you remember the questions I asked about you before we met?”

“You’re playing with fire.”

“No, I’m not into fire play, but I have a feeling you know what I need.”

“What …” He turned, his gaze swept over her body and he brushed his hand over his mouth. “You take my breath away.” He stepped toward her, adjusting the bulge in his pants. “You think you want to play?”

“I do.” She sucked on her lip, wishing she’d worn her one set of matching bra and panties.

“Fuck, I want this” He brushed her skin ever so slightly up her arms, across her chest, and down between her breasts. “I’ve had dreams about this moment.” He raised her chin, forcing her to look at him. He dragged his fingers through her hair and tugged the length of it back. “I want you at my mercy. Do you have any idea what it’s like to give someone like me control?”

“Yes, sir.” She arched her back, revealing her neck. He kept pulling and tingles of pain danced along her scalp. “Please.”

“Are you already asking for mercy?” He tugged her hair again “I don’t think you know what you’re starting.”

“I don’t want you to stop. I want more, sir.” Her breasts pushed against his chest and her grip on his arms tightened. “I want to know.”
