It's #TeaserTuesday and #KissAGingerDay today, so this excerpt from "Playing with Fire", Book 1 in the series and available as a free download, seems perfect.
Felicia's nerve endings were on fire.
When Joshua lifted her head and tilted it slightly toward him, her tongue flicked out to lick her lips in anticipation of a kiss she longed for with all her body, her heart and her soul.
His gaze shot to her mouth and she could feel his body tense, fingers still, breath held. He drew closer until their faces were barely a couple of inches apart, his gaze lifting to meet hers.
“I’m giving you a lot of credit. For all kinds of things.”
The way he said it made a delicious shiver run down her spine. His icy blue eyes were unfathomably deep and sparkling with an invitation she wanted to meet with fiery passion.
“You have an odd way of showing it,” she countered, her voice no more than a whisper.
“Any suggestions of a better way?”
There was a hint of humor and a sexy promise in his voice.
Her pulse hammering in her throat, she answered, “I think I do.”
Without waiting for his reaction, she bridged the gap and kissed him.
Her lips barely touched his at first, but the mere contact was enough to make her limbs turn liquid. Before she knew it, their kiss was passionate and deep and hungry, his fingers pressing her head closer, one of her hands coming up to squeeze his hard, cool arm.
Thinking was a thing of the past as the fire dragon inside her purred and stretched its limbs and grew bigger.
Yet again, he was the one to break the kiss.
With a groan so soft she wasn’t sure she had heard it, he backed away. Withdrawing his hand from her glowing red curls, he ran his fingers through his hair and stared at the ground for an instant, visibly pulling himself together.
When he looked at her next, there was a small smile on his face, and his eyes were still sparkling magically.
Fighting with her emotions and the light tremor in her voice, she answered, “Better.”
