The purpose here is to spotlight a few lines or a few paragraphs from a new release or backlisted title. This way my readers get to sample some delicious snippets and I'll do my best to tease, titillate and tantalize you into the weekend.
I'm teasing with THE BELTANE WITCH, a paranormal romance featuring witches and Fae, and book 2 in the Cloudburst Colorado series. In today's tease, Darius Winterbourne, Chamberlain of the Summer Court, has gotten single-mom and witch Sabrina Foxglove to agree to meet tomorrow about doing the High Beltane Rituals. But that's all she agreed to do and he's surprised.
No one had ever turned down such an honor before. Certainly not when delivered by him. Why hadn’t she folded under his charm?
He sighed and raised his hood above his head, protecting it from the fat flakes of snow settling over the black pavement of the little parking lot. Her obstinacy diluted his interest in her, regardless of her beauty. Women should be biddable, accommodating, amiable.
But damn, she is lovely.
His mind recalled Sabrina’s lush curves despite the disfiguring wool jacket and thick fleece pants. He could imagine full breasts with rosy areoles and tight nipples flushed with heat from his kisses. Her coat had only hinted at the generous ass beneath, but he could see it gripped in his hands as he thrust into her welcoming heat from in front.
His cock stretched his leather trousers in response to his thoughts and he reached down to adjust himself to a more favorable position. He considered the woman upon whom all his immediate future plans were based.
Sabrina Foxglove had been blessed with strength of will and great power, unlike most of the witches he’d met in the past. Her determined resignation when faced with five opponents of greater stature than herself had impressed him. She should have used a simple persuasion spell to direct their attentions elsewhere. Perhaps she's untrained. Experienced or not, she remained a potent witch. And sexy as hell, too. When there’d been no other choice, she’d stood her ground with honor. She hadn’t cried or whined or begged, qualities he loathed in the fairer sex.
Darius fastened his hooded coat around him and melted back into the alley darkness. The wind threatened to remove his hood, but he held it down with his gloved hands. Why is it still winter here in this little town?
Sabrina would change her attitude toward him and the Summer Court when he had a chance to explain at their meeting tomorrow. She’d see the true honor in what she'd been offered and show proper gratitude for his help. He imagined the type of gratitude he’d like. He could see her lavender eyes staring seductively up at him while her lips stretched over his hard phallic flesh and her tongue polished the head.
He’d hoped to have such an opportunity this evening, but Sabrina proved to be more obdurate than he'd expected. Of course, she’d been accosted by those idiots and frightened. His sudden appearance may have scared her even more. Women didn’t trust men who appeared out of the dark. She’d feel differently in the light of day when his good looks and charm seduced her.
Satisfied everything would be settled the next day, Darius lengthened his strides down the quiet snowy street. Silence of winter’s last gasp enveloped him, the only sounds the crunching of his footsteps. Damn, it’s cold. He shivered a little, looking forward to a hot bath and a warm cup of rum to see him through the night.
He stopped as if he’d run straight into the snow-draped brick wall beside him.
Where the hell would he sleep?
