Every Saturday, a group of romance authors share sexy snippets from their published works or works-in-progress. To read some more My Sexy Saturday posts, click here. My post today comes from my work in progress, French Kiss (Navy SEALs of Valor 3).
First, some eye candy for you. Meet Navy SEAL Karl Patterson! He will be on the book cover once Anya Kelleye finishes her wonderful work. Expected cover reveal date is February 3!
After battling terrorists threatening Charles de Gaulle airport, Karl Patterson and Jamie Phillips are headed to Karl’s Paris hotel room to release the pent up passion that has been simmering between them ever since Karl rescued Jamie from a burning building earlier that day. Jamie is both thrilled and terrified about the possibility of their impending interlude.
As the cab wove through traffic on Avenue des Champs-Élysées, Jamie felt jittery from the undercurrent of sexual awareness that hummed in the air. Karl sat just inches away. The impulse to pounce on him, to wrap her arms around his broad muscular back and mash her lips against his was so intense she forced herself to internally recite the word no, no, no over and over.
This is nuts. This Navy SEAL oozed masculinity. She couldn’t put her finger on the physical characteristic that had first made her hormones go whacky when he’d rescued her from the fire. His pectoral muscles, even smeared with soot, had caught her attention when he’d first pushed open that door and their eyes had met. They’d looked like they were carved out of stone and when he’d carried her in his arms and her body had contacted that magnificent chest… that had only confirmed what her eyes had deduced–the man was all steely muscle without an ounce of soft excess.
Karl scooted across the seat closer to her.
Oh, my God. Oh, my God. The tingling in her nerve endings was probably registering on Paris seismometers. Jamie’s sudden inhale caught in her throat and she coughed.
“Are you all right?” Karl asked.
That subtle southern accent coupled with a deep resonant voice. Another possible trigger for my sexual mania, Jamie told herself. “Umm. No, I mean yes, I’m fine.”
Without saying a word, he reached over and placed a hand on her thigh. While his hand lingered, his gaze met hers. Those weren’t the ocean blue eyes she’d seen before. His irises had transformed to blue flames. Her nipples hardened under the intensity of his stare. She imagined Karl’s eyes would look like that the instant he drove deep inside her for the first time. Have you lost your mind?
