by Margaret Tanner

“Wait.” Abby hurtled across the room. “Thank you for being so kind.” She leaned over to kiss Ethan’s cheek. Somehow, she miscalculated and caught him on the mouth.
He exhaled a noisy breath. He stiffened momentarily before clamping his arms around her, slamming her against his hard, gym toned body.
“I’ve wanted to do this for hours.” He took her lips and they were as soft and sweet as he dreamed they would be. He deepened the kiss. Instead of pushing him away as he thought she might, she opened her mouth to give his tongue deeper access, letting him taste at will. And taste her he did. Thoroughly. Deeply.
His impatient tongue explored her mouth now, savoring it, drawing out all its purity but still wanting more. His head told him this was madness, his libido said otherwise. He smelled her special woman’s scent. He was intoxicated with it, intoxicated with her.

A very sensual, heated 1st kiss. Do I detect a lot of underlyding repression that just came out in that kiss? (wink!)

Surprising how passion can sneek up on one.

Hi Everyone,
Thanks so much for stopping by, I appreciate it. Excuse me for being slow to reply, but I have been away from home. Hubby and I took ourselves off for a short break to the mineral springs area a few hours drive from home, and the internet reception is not good.
