Cool Canadians, Hot Contemporaries
November 20, Vivian Arend and Elle Kennedy share a release day at Samhain Publishing: ROCKY MOUNTAIN ANGEL and GETTING HOTTER. We’re stopping off at some of our favorite blogs to ramble for a bit and share some COOL or HOT excerpts, just for fun. The theme for this post?
Viv: We’re talking about Hot Kisses and I think both of our excerpts are first kisses.
Elle: Yes, they are. I love that Gabe and Allison kiss
Viv: Why, thank you! They enjoyed it as well.
Elle: Haha. I’m sure they did.
Viv: There’s something so…delicious about the first kiss.
Elle: I know! But lately it’s also getting tough for me to write a good kiss scene. I feel like it’s hard to make it different each time.
Viv: But the reality is, first kisses aren’t always different. I mean, it’s the people and place that make it special. But it’s either awkward, or tender or hot…
Elle: Very true.
Viv: And even the people and places affect that. Do you remember a first kiss you got?
Elle: How do we define first kiss? Like a peck? Or with tongue?
Viv: LOL. Define it anyway you want, darling.
Elle: OK, then I won’t count those silly spin-the-bottle type situations where it’s a quick peck on the lips and then you both break apart in terror.
Viv: HA! Not a kiss, definitely.
Elle: My first kiss was probably at 15 then. It was okay. Kind of awkward. He was too tongue-aggressive.
Viv: OH MY WORD, me too. I thought he was going for my tonsils with his tongue.
Elle: What is up with that??
Viv: LOL. Lizard instincts.
Elle: And then my face was all saliva-y and I had to wipe it off with my sleeve.
Elle: Thank you. LOL But yeah, I think Gabe and Seth are pretty skilled at kissing. Better than teenage boys, definitely.
Viv: Thank goodness. I’m glad our heroes know the fine art of the kiss.
The kiss rivaled the storm that raged outside the house—powerful and all-consuming. Her lips were soft, warm, and he could feel them trembling as he rubbed his mouth over hers in a fleeting caress. There it was, his one taste, and it wasn’t enough, not by a long shot. Miranda must have agreed, because she didn’t pull away, didn’t protest when he coaxed her lips open with his tongue and licked his way inside.
She let out the sexiest little moan he’d ever heard when their tongues met. He swallowed the sound and angled his head to deepen the kiss, letting their tongues swirl and explore.
The only contact between them was their fused mouths and his hand resting lightly on her jaw. Her arms didn’t come around his neck. His other hand didn’t explore her sweet curves.
Their lower bodies didn’t collide.
And yet it was the most erotic kiss of his entire life.
Rocky Mountain Angel
One step forward brought him close enough to touch. One more, and Allison was ready to edge against the wall to get out of his way. That was her plan until he reached out and caught her, one hand snaking around the back of her neck, the other around her body so he could pull them tight together. He lowered his mouth over hers deliberately, slow enough she could have retreated if she’d wanted to.
She was too surprised to move. Or at least that was the excuse she gave herself.
His lips were firm but gentle. No tongue, just a meeting of mouths. Kisses, one after another followed as he controlled her position, not allowing her to squirm away. And when she opened her mouth to complain he took total advantage, deepening the kiss until she was ready to pass out for the second time that day.
Pass out, or she was about to wrap her arms around him and grind their bodies together, she was so excited. From kissing. From the feel of his long, hard body pressed up tight against hers.
He let her go, leaning away. Cool air and regret he hadn’t done more than simply kiss her hit about the same time. Holy cow, what had she gotten herself into?
