Yes, it’s back as promised! I am feeling super tired today but I wanted to keep my promise and post a Saturday Snippet! As always, it’s a short snippet of a scene from one of my paranormal romance books.
Marcus rolled onto his back, bringing her with him, and stopped kissing her. He frowned at the duvet wedged between them and tugged at it. Amelia raised herself so the blanket came free and then sighed when he pulled her back against him, his bare body warming hers. It was so easy to forget everything when he kissed her. He wasnâ€™t an angel and she wasnâ€™t in danger. It all seemed so distant and irrelevant.
She kissed him again, teasing him with sweeps of her lips that barely grazed his. He made a short noise of frustration, snaked his hand around the nape of her neck, and brought her mouth down on his. The kiss was fierce and hungry, everything that she had come to think of whenever her mind turned to him. There was so much passion and desire in him, but such tenderness too. He had held her close to him in that other world, lying on his back with her body half on his and his fingers playing in her damp hair. She had felt so tremendously at peace with him there and she had known the depth of his feelings for her. It transcended such a simple word as care. It even went beyond what she knew as love. And it was something that burned deep within her too.
Marcusâ€™s hands skimmed down her bare thighs and she tingled wherever he touched, sparks racing over her skin and burrowing deep into her belly where they blazed into desire.
She loosed a moan and deepened the kiss, so their tongues softly danced and their breath mingled.
She wouldnâ€™t say no to a real-world encore to last night.
He stiffened beneath her, hands grasping her upper arms, and pushed her backwards. She was going to ask what was wrong but the way he stared at the closed bedroom door held her tongue. She listened, straining to hear what he had, if anything at all.
Marcus lifted her off him and rose from the bed, his back to her. He stood there, stock still and never once taking his eyes off the door. Had he heard something? It was probably just Taylor and Einar.
The sense of danger drifted away at that thought and she swept her gaze up Marcus, lingering a moment on his backside and the material that loosely covered it before continuing to the dimples above his bottom and finally following the strong line of his back up to his shoulder blades.
Her gaze tracked the grey-blue swirls of the wings marked on his skin.
Someone had wanted to seal his power and he wasnâ€™t sure why.
Did it have something to do with her, so they could take her from him?
I hope you enjoyed this Saturday Snippet!
