Celebrating Independence Blog Hop

Big thanks to Drea for holding the hop!

It's that time of year again! The 4th of July is when we honor those who keep us safe, and I can't think of a better holiday. July 4th is one of my favorites for the aforementioned reason, but also because of fireworks. I LOVE fireworks! I'd watch them once a week if I could. It's been a few years since I've been to a good show but I'm hoping to catch some this year!

Want to read something HOT over the holiday weekend? I have lots of choices for you!

Today I'm highlighting a XXX-scene from book 2 in my Unveiled series at Ellora's Cave, PROVOKE ME. Kelly and Spencer are two of my favorite characters I've ever written (and they're going to get another book!) Book 3 in the series, Need Me, will be released later this year.


XXX Scene from PROVOKE ME


The guy palmed Nina’s ass and hauled her up and down his cock, eliciting more of her cries. They seemed to fill the room, rising above the noises of the other couples. The guy started swatting her ass, leaving red handprints as he thrust up into her waiting pussy. Waves of heat washed over Kelly from head-to-toe. She clutched her glass as flames licked at her sex, arcing sparks into her nipples.

Kelly couldn’t believe how turned-on she was. Between the rampant sexuality all around her and Spencer standing mere feet away, wearing only a towel, touching himself, she couldn’t think. She needed to come. And from his restless pulls on his cock, he needed the same thing.

Nina released a long, broken moan and Kelly’s hold on her drink faltered, her fingers slipping from her own sweat. Shit.

Glass exploded on the polished floor, the sound ricocheting like gunfire. Only the people closest to her noticed. Or at least that was what she thought until her gaze connected with Spencer’s. He’d drawn back to stare at her as if he were seeing a ghost. Shock etched features that a moment ago had been taut with lust and those heavy-lidded, dark eyes burned into hers across the room.

Hey there, Spencer. Remember me?

Awareness hummed between them. His hooded gaze raked her bare, left her shivering and raw. Exposed.

It was all too much. She’d come here to be with him when she couldn’t even face herself in this place. She couldn’t take those few steps toward him, but she couldn’t turn away. Her game had gone way too far.

“Jesus, fuck, look at all the glass! I got a piece in my ass!” The giggly blonde—not so giggly now—leaped to her feet and glared at Kelly. At the same moment, Kelly’s cell phone went off in her purse, launching into one of the latest songs.

“Christ, turn that shit off!” Giggly blonde’s male friend must not have been a fan of pop music.

Kelly grabbed her shoes. Obviously, she’d overstayed her welcome.

She didn’t stop to slip on her sandals before running through the door. Just keep moving. But it was hard to do that when the hall suddenly teemed with people. Where had they all come from?

She waited for a break in the foot traffic to take a step but her dizziness returned. Better and better. She had to get out of there. But her feet refused to work.

Squeezing her eyes shut, she tried to get hold of herself. She could freak out later. Much later, when she was safe in her bed at home.

She fought her way through the crowd, somehow managing to make it to the shadowy end of the hallway. The Emergency Exit loomed ahead. Safety. But before she reached it, someone drove her up against the wall. Her breath rushed out in a big whoosh as she realized a muscled male body had her pinned.

And not just with his hands. A hard cock pressed against her backside. She went still.

“Don’t think you got what you came for,” he said softly, his voice barely a hot whisper against her ear. “Or do you just like to watch too?”

The 4th is one of my favorite holidays. We BBQ, drink lots of beer, and light fireworks. The kids play on the slip and slide, do sparklers, and run around with their cousins.

That was a rousing, sexy excerpt. Thanks for sharing. I've never been much of a fan of this holiday. I love the spirit, but not the heat, noise, and crowds. And the fireworks just scare the kitty cats. I'm content to grill out at home and watch the fireworks on TV.
Happy July 4th...Stay cool!
