“What the hell is so funny?” I lick up the column of her exposed throat. “The look on your face.” “Glad to amuse you, babe, but you won’t think it’s quite so funny when I punish you for your little stunt.” “Whatever you say. It was innocent.” “Innocent? You’re in a bar in a strange city, with some of the craziest girls in the world, looking like a fucking sex kitten, and you call that innocent?” “You think I look like a sex kitten?” Her voice goes low. “Absofuckinglutely. Hottest girl in this room. The hair, the body, the outfit... Every guy in here, with the exception of our friends, wants to fuck you. Lucky for me, that’s my job. And when I get you alone, that’s exactly what I’m going to do.” Her eyes grow hazy with lust, and she licks her lower lip. “Can you tell me more about this punishment?” I move her to a dark corner and pin her against the wall. “Stop looking at me like that, Ember. I’m not above fucking you against the bathroom wall.” “Ummm, sounds like fun. What else.” She taunts me, and I grow hard against her pelvis. “You like that? You want me to talk dirty and tell you I want to eat your fucking pussy until you beg for mercy for leaving me tonight? Make you come silently against my mouth, fingers, and dick while we’re in a house full of people?” “Yes, I want that. I want you any and every way I can get you.” Excerpt #2 “Don’t move.” He jolts up, turning my back to his. “I’m going to unclothe every inch of you and enjoy the fuck out of it.” Goose bumps spread over my skin, which he notices. “You nervous, Ember? I hope so, because I’m going to show you what it’s like to be loved by a real man. Every step you take tomorrow will remind you of me.” A tremor runs down my spine as he unzips the dress and kisses his way down. When he hits the small of my back, he licks against my skin and runs his hands up to my shoulders, forcing the dress to fall. The material pools at my feet, leaving me in nothing but a strapless bra, lace panties, and strappy heels. He picks me up as if I weigh nothing and lays me across the bed. Something in me snaps, and I move quickly, clawing at his clothes to get him naked. He helps me get his shirt off and kicks off his own socks and shoes. When I reach for his belt, his large hand covers mine and tightens. “This is my turn, babe.” Without another word, he holds my hips in place as he kisses his way down my body, whispering sweet words. The heat of his breath against my flesh almost causes my undoing. I want this man more than I’ve wanted anything in my life. When his mouth hits my belly button, his hands inch my panties slowly down my legs. The wait is agonizing until he sucks lightly at the sensitive skin on both my upper thighs. As soon as his tongue sweeps along my slick center, I whimper. My hands glide through his silky hair, pulling him closer. He pinches my ass, thrusting his tongue as deep as possible. My hips tilt and legs fall open, giving him complete access. “Look at me, Ember. Watch as I suck your sweet pussy.” His voice is rough and demanding. When our eyes lock, I stop breathing. His stare is deep. The normal bright, beautiful blue is dark and intense. He makes a point to lick, unhurriedly, watching my reaction. His tongue circles my lips, teasing me. Then he kisses the same path until I start to tremble. As hard as I try, I can’t stop my eyes from closing. He feasts on me as I squirm and pant, trying to hold back. His teeth lightly nip my clit, forcing feelings of to ecstasy flow. As soon as his finger slips in, I scream his name, coming apart against his lips. Waves of extreme pleasure take over, setting my nerve endings on fire. He doesn’t ease up, sucking me in further. My vision goes spotty, and I grip his sheets tightly, trying to come down from my high. His hands roam up my torso and slip around to undo my bra before he throws it to the ground. His moist lips kiss a path along my collarbone, stopping at the column of my throat. “Fucking unbelievable,” he murmurs against my skin. “Your body is made for me.” Excerpt #3 My eyes flutter as soft fingertips drag across my lower back. The faint sound of thumping pounds against my ear as I open my eyes, feeling disoriented. The first thing I see are the hard lines of Robbie’s stomach as his chest rises and falls. My face buries into the warmth of his embrace and he starts chuckling. “Is it possible to wake you?” he rumbles. “Guess so, but I was having the most wonderful dreams.” “So was I, but mine weren’t while sleeping. Mine are right here in the flesh, laid out on top of me. When I lift my head to his, my heart melts. The look of devotion on his face is so strong it threatens to crush me. “How long have I been asleep?” “About an hour. When I came out of the bathroom, you were passed out.” “Why aren’t you asleep?” “Because I have an incredibly sexy, naked woman lying in my arms. It would be a shame to miss this.” “I’ve slept with you naked before.” Blush creeps up my cheeks. “Think we both know this is different.” Emotions bubble inside of me, and I curl into him. “You mean something special to me, Ember. More than special. I want you to know that.”
