Welcome to Mid Week Tease!
Friends … I goofed! Totally missed out on officially joining the linky list for this week’s teasing selection so please forgive me! Thank you so much, Miss Bunino, for bringing us back for sexy fun each week. Author friends, join in next week, won’t you? Check Sandra’s post for the sign up. With Valentine’s only a few days away, I knew I wanted to share from the book that started my romance writing career. Please enjoy this bit from Sidewalk Flower with one of my favorite couples, Trista and her man, Lucas “Lucky” Mason...
He gazed out into the sleepy nighttime sky that surrounded them, sure of what he was about to do. He poised himself up onto his knees so that he could more easily remove the folded up handkerchief from his back pocket. His head grazed the soft top of the Jeep but he ignored it to bring out the cotton that was folded over a couple times. Unwrapping the folds, he held it out to her, cradling it in his open hands. It was a beautiful yellow daffodil that he had plucked from the church’s flower garden. It matched the color of the lively threads of the dress Trista now wore which brought a heat to his heart he couldn’t and didn’t want to cool down.
“Trista Jeane Hart, I would be honored and extremely happy if you would be my wife. I love you, darlin’, more than anything in this entire world.”
He handed her the flower.
“Oh Trista, you are insane. Yes, I want you so badly, I’m about two seconds away from scooping you up and sneaking you into your old room, and having my way with you.”
“But I mean, forever, you want to keep me forever.”
“I would love to be your wife. Yes Lucas!”
He bounced off his knees in his excitement and hit his head on a roll bar. “Ouch.” He lowered his head and Trista rubbed it for him. “I kind of like the sound of that. Yes, Lucas. I think I could get used to hearing you say that more often. Yes and Lucas. Just like that.”
“I might be insane but you are a nut, Lucas.”
“So you’re going to marry me?”
“And we’re going to figure out a way to live together, somehow?”
“Lucky—” She set down her flower and brought her hands to his chest. “I want you to make love to me. Here, now.”
“Are you sure?”
“Yes. This is our spot. Remember, you held my hand that very first night, right over there. Well, on those two rocks.” Trista pointed over to the stony perch just to the side of her parking spot. “I’ve spent quite a few nights over the past few months imagining what would have happened if you’d have let me keep kissing you. Do you want to know what I’ve imagined the most?”
He coughed. “Yes.”
“Are you sure you won’t be embarrassed?”
The only thing that would embarrass him right now would be if he came in his pants. “Please, tell me.”
She brought his hand up to her lips and sucked the tip of his middle finger. He was so aroused right now. How long had he waited for this night?
“See your fingers, how long they are and how your skin smooths out just perfectly over them but is still soft?”
He nodded yes, feeling freer to feel than he ever had and closed the tiny distance between his groin and her tummy. She was so sexy and warm pressed up against him.
“I imagine that your—.”
Dear Lord, would she tell him the rest? He touched her face and concentrated as best he could on keeping his eyes on hers so she would know he was dying to hear it. She moved her hands to his hair that he’d left loose just for her and massaged.
“That,” she kissed his soul patch. All his inhibitions died when she spoke into his mouth while staring straight into his eyes…
