HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY! If its anywhere near as sweltering where you are as it is where I am, I hope you too are able to find some AC or a cool breeze and get your heat from a hot novel, just as I intend to today. I have no intention of journeying out into the fires of 1,000 suns until the heat index isn’t off the charts!
Besides, I much prefer smexy times to keep me hot! Today’s wistful/wanton quotes come from a novel near and dear to me, One Foot in the grave, book 2 of Jeaniene Frost’s Night Huntress series.
Half-vampire Cat Crawfield is now Special Agent Cat Crawfield, working for the government to rid the world of the rogue undead. She’s still using everything Bones, her sexy and dangerous ex, taught her, but when Cat is targeted for assassination, the only man who can help her is the vampire she left behind.
Being around Bones awakens all her emotions, from the adrenaline rush of slaying vamps side by side to the reckless passion that consumed them. But a price on her head—wanted: dead or half-alive—means her survival depends on teaming up with Bones. And no matter how hard Cat tries to keep things professional between them, she’ll find that desire lasts forever…and Bones won’t let her get away again.
Ahh the feels…
“I knew without a doubt I’d fallen in love when we met. Then I knew I’d do anything to make you feel the same way.”
“Bones, before we do this, I have to tell you something. You know I still care about you, obviously, but it’s more than that. I’m… I still love you. I’ve never stopped, actually, even though I tried to snap out of it over the years. I don’t expect you to feel the same way, but—”
“I’ve never stopped loving you,” he cut me off, coming over to take me in his arms. “Not for an instant. Even when I was so angry at you for leaving me, I’ve always loved you, Kitten.”
He kissed me, a slow, deep kiss, like we had all the time in the world. I wished we did, but right now, I was afraid I might never see him again. With a shuddering sigh, I pushed him back.
“I’ll give you another kiss later. Right now I’m too scared about what you’re doing.”
CHAPTER FREAKING THIRTY-FREAKING-TWO
If I could share the entire chapter, I would. Oh man, would I ever. Chapter 32 is its own thing. It is one behemoth, no holds barred, lusty, carnal, wild and abandoned sexual experience where Bones and Cat have the most epic coupling. I damn near went tantric reading it. In a word, hhugsstrs8w686wr64 B3&$%^^#*&%$#!.
Loosely translates to, WOW.
With deliberate slowness, Bones began unbuttoning his shirt. I watched his creamy skin revealed with each unfastened clasp. When he was finished, he pulled it off, and then ripped each sleeve free with a tug. The reason for that strange action was revealed when he tied the fabric around my eyes, blindfolding me. My nails dug into my palms as everything went black. He’d done a good job with it. The next thing I felt were his hands pushing me back onto the bed, and then easing off my clothes until I was naked. Something was secured around my wrist, stretching my arm out lengthwise and then restraining it, presumably to the bed frame. The same action was repeated with my other arm.
“Don’t fight them,” Bones whispered. “They’re not strong enough to hold you. Relax.” A low chuckle. “Let me work.” ….
Hands trailed over my shoulders and moved lower to cup my breasts. A mouth closed over my nipple, fangs already extended. He laved the peak with his tongue, and then the flatness of his human teeth nibbled it to hardness. I inhaled sharply when he carefully dug his incisors in next, just short of breaking the skin. He drew stronger on my nipple until ribbons of raw desire shot through me.
“Don’t move, luv.” Easier said than done. I wanted to pull on the bonds to have their tautness drive that heat further into me. His skin brushing against my mouth distracted me from that, however, as he slid his body down the length of me…
The breath from his words teased me, causing the ache to expand… More liquid fire cascaded in me, tripled by the new flames in my leg, and I came with an internal spasm that left me trembling. Holy shit! He hadn’t even touched me between my legs, and here I was shaking from a 9.0 on the orgasm scale. Bones’s mouth left my thigh, which was throbbing so hard, it felt like my artery was trying to shove his juices through my veins. I didn’t even have time to catch my breath when a dominating lick deep within me took it away…
“Oh, Kitten,” he growled. “You have no idea how much I enjoyed that. I’ve already spilled myself inside you, bloody hell, I thought you’d castrate me with your pleasure. Do you know how long you’ve been whipping around from the effects of my bite?”….
Something had taken over inside me, and it was clawing to get out. “You’d better not stop f-king me,” I snarled, and a decadent grin lit his face. “Because if you do, I’ll drain you dry.”
Bones laughed, savage and exultant. “You’ll drain me dry, but not my neck, and you’ll beg me to stop before I’m finished,” he promised before abandoning himself to the battle.
