“Let me whisper sweet nothings in your ear.”
Welcome back to Sweet Nothings, a little shadow of Sweet Saturday Samples, until that sweet treat starts back up. Until that happens, I’m doing a little weekly blog where you can post a “sweet” excerpt (PG 13 or milder) from one of your works. Remember: please hold the excerpt to 350 words or less. But if your cutting needs just a few more words, that’s okay too. I won’t be counting. LOL
Today’s “Sweet Nothing” is another excerpt from my (hopefully) soon-to-be released Victorian historical novel, As Long As You’re Mine. This excerpt is the spirited continuation of last week’s “nothing” beneath the copper beech. Rafe retaliates!
A single huge stride put her within reach. She had time for a high-pitched squawk then he had his mouth on hers again, finding it still open from her cry. He took full advantage, delving into the warm, sweet depths, chasing her outraged tongue, stroking the roof of her mouth until she squealed, though probably not with delight. He released her abruptly, the suction of their lips making a rude smacking noise.
“I could say the same thing about your kisses, Mr. Beauregard.” Samantha tried to twist her arm free, but he held it secure.
“If you really thought so you shouldn’t have encouraged me during the first one.” He grinned at her furrowed brow.
Her exasperated huff ruffled the hair on his forehead. “I did no such thing!”
“I regret to disagree, but you most certainly did. And there’s no reason we can’t indulge in a little dalliance with a clear conscience now. We blew the barn door off the hinges last night. That horse isn’t coming back.”
“I don’t intend to indulge in anything with you, Mr. Beauregard.” She pursed her lips. “Will you please let me go? You’re hurting my arm.”
Rafe doubted that, but he nodded and released her. She immediately darted around the side of the tree, though he could see her rubbing her wrist. He shook his head, weary of her didoes, and bent to pick up her gloves.
“You can come back, Samantha. I promise not to bite.”
“If you try to kiss me again, sir, I will be the one who bites,” she said from behind the tree.

Okay, now it’s your turn to share a “Sweet Nothing.” 🙂
