    • This or That Contest: Sexy SEAL First Kisses

      Methinks it’s time for a This or That contest.  I thought it’d be fun to see which Sexy SEAL first kiss you think is hottest, and for the prize I’ll offer a Sexy SEAL swag bag and a custom SEAL bookmark!

      A SEAL's Fantasy cover

       This from A SEAL’s Fantasy:

      Her eyes locked on his dark gaze, Lara stood on tiptoe to brush her lips over his.

      Oh. He tasted so good. Sweet and sexy both at the same time. His mouth was soft, his bottom lip tempting her. Unable—unwilling—to resist, she gave it a quick nip before soothing it with her tongue.

      It was lighting a stick of dynamite.
      One second, he was calm, almost mellow.
      Then next he exploded.
      Castillo’s hands wrapped around her waist, pulling her tight against his body. Oh, man, what a body he had. Hard, big and enticing, Lara had to force herself not to rub against him like a cat in heat.

      She wasn’t sure how long she’d be able to hold out, though.

      He took over the kiss, his tongue thrusting between her lips, fast and furious. Hot and wild.

      Lara’s chest grew tight because she was breathing so hard. Her thighs trembled, damp need pooling between her legs, her core aching for his touch.

      Danger, her mind screamed. It took it a few rounds, though, before the warning penetrated the passion fogging her brain.

      Screw danger. Her lips moved under Castillo’s, her tongue tangled with his in a wild dance. Her fingers roamed up and down the hard plane of his glorious chest. The soft fabric of his shirt skimmed her knuckles, making her impatient to get it off him.

      or That from A SEAL’s Salvation:A SEAL's Salvation cover

      Genna’s heart raced so fast, she swore she could feel it vibrating under her skin. Her body went into meltdown, needy and wanting more. It’d been so long since he’d touched her. Since he’d kissed her. Was it as good as she remembered? Was he better now?

      She didn’t care how stupid it was. She wanted to find out.

      So when he leaned closer, his expression pure intimidation, frown and all, she leaned, too.

      Right into his lips.

      Oh. Her head spun, slow and intoxicating. Her body almost melted, he felt so good. She’d have thought that frown would make his lips hard. But, no. They were soft. Welcoming.

      Yummy.

      Afraid to move, afraid to close her eyes, Genna stared up at Brody. Waiting.

      Her heart raced, anticipation pounding through her veins. Surely he wouldn’t turn her away. Would he? As he stood, rock still, disappointment started to edge out the anticipation. Genna sighed against his mouth, preparing to move away and begin her decent into humiliated horror.

      Then he took over.ASSalvation_QCard

      He grabbed her arms, just above the elbow, lifting her higher so her toes barely brushed the floor. His mouth shifted, angling. Taking. His tongue plunged, dark and demanding as it
      Drove deep into her mouth.

      Genna’s head fell back, giving him control. Giving him anything.

      For a chance to win the Sexy SEAL swag, just tell me in the comments which you think is hottest… This or That… Continue reading →

    Nobody succeeds beyond his or her wildest expectations unless he or she begins with some wild expectations.

    We will always tend to fulfill our own expectation of ourselves.
