Wake-Me-Up Wednesday

Good morning, all! I don't know about you, but this morning's sunrise was quite impressive where I live - a perfect pink and golden scene to wake up to. My coffee is brewed and in hand, and the only thing left to make this day complete is a little dose of WMU Wednesday to get the body and mind going.

For your enjoyment, I'm featuring yet another snippet from The Temperate Warrior, soon to be released in just a few weeks. December cannot come soon enough...don't you agree?

Have a great Wednesday and a very Happy Thanksgiving!



He playfully nipped at her nose and backed her against the vertical beam of the room. Sandwiched between the dense face of the wood and the solid wall of his chest, she valued the dominance of his character. With just a simple gesture, he expressed authority and power, by means of a mighty body and challenging eyes, yet behind all that brawny exterior lay a man as gentle as the tender reeds swaying along the marshes.

She placed her hands on his barrel chest and stroked him around his shoulders, lacing her fingers behind his neck. “I have missed you, my temperate warrior.”

He closed his eyes and laid his forehead against hers. “You do realize your pet name does little to describe the fierceness I would rather be remembered for.”

She rubbed noses with him and reveled in the feel of his body pressed against hers. “Far be it from me to deface your fierce reputation among men, but ‘tis not violent hostility I remember in these hands…” She touched each part of him with a delicate brush of her fingertips. “These eyes, these lips...”

His lips found hers the moment she spoke of them. The soft wet heat of his mouth had her gasping in surprise and buckling at the knees. With his arms secured around her, he never let her hit the floor as he slipped his tongue past her teeth. Feathers of warmth fanned from her core, spreading throughout her body. She was helpless to the talents of his kiss and welcomed the expertise of his seductive hands caressing her.
