Some blogs do a weekly feature called “Thirsty Thursday” and Pakwanstripes chose this scene from SUN-KISSED for hers. (Link to her post in the comments.) What’s one of your favorite kiss scenes? (Doesn’t have to be in my books, btw! Whatever book.)
“Mack.” Anne sighed, turning. “Look. Tomorrow, I’m going to do you a favor and pretend none of this ever happened.”
“Oh, good,” he said, with a sudden angry, fierce delight, as he dropped her shoe and crowded her right back against her door. “Well, I can do one hell of a lot of things right now, then, if this is all just a fantasy.”
And he kissed her.
Just flat out kissed her. No careful approach, no slow dip in to make sure she was okay with it, no testing the waters. He just took her mouth and took it over, like she was a damn company and he was pissed off.
Like he was just going to seize all her assets and restructure her.
She felt that way. Seized. Restructured.
His mouth molded hers, dipping straight into hers, his arms tightening on either side of her body until she was locked between his forearms on the door. They pressed against her sides, and then they were curving around her back. And then they were hauling her up into him, as he kept on kissing.
Kissed her until she couldn’t think or breathe, until she couldn’t get her hands to either pound on him for freedom or grip him to capture this invader and punish him for his invasion.
He kissed her until she was kissing him back, until when he finally raised his head, she had no strength left. What the hell was she supposed to do without her strength? She always needed it.
Mack was breathing hard, his face all angles and danger in the lights and shadows of the porch. “Anything else you want to pretend never happened tomorrow?” he asked, with that hushed, wicked anger.
She stared up at him, trying to breathe, trying to wet her lips.
“Because I’ve got a few more ideas.”
I am trying to regroup from RWA and get organized to post a big thank you to so many people who participated in the Amour et Florand week while I was away, with links to their different posts. It was really incredible and I’m deeply touched by it. Thank you so much to so many!
