Man Candy Tuesday #4
It's that time again - Man Candy Tuesday! In honor of the hot men who appear every Monday on "Hawaii Five-0", I've dedicated Tuesdays to the most mouth-watering man candy out there. Enjoy!
I'm on a werewolf kick today because soon I'm going to being writing my sequel to my werewolf erotic romance FERAL HEAT. The sequel is tentatively entitled LOVER'S MOON until I come up with a better title. I'm also introducing Charlotte and Lina from my short lesbian story NEIGHBORS in LOVER'S MOON. Find the lesbian anthology VAMPS published by Torquere Press to read NEIGHBORS.
Quentin Collins on the old soap opera "Dark Shadows" was the original sexy werewolf for me.
More werewolves (Don't scream. Yes, it's Twilight. LOL!)
Yet another werewolf...
He's not a werewolf, but Hugh Jackman as Wolverine is a big influence on me. Besides, I'm always looking for an excuse to gape at Hugh Jackman. LOL!
Here are more mouth-watering men to make you drool.
I've had a request to start a Cheesecake Thursday thread so I'm going to start that one soon, maybe even this week.

What People Are Saying About "Feral Heat":
"...a real pleasure to read... the menage of both werewolf and mortal brings some steam to the pages of this novella, and this is one read I would highly recommend to readers of romance, erotica, GLBT, and anyone who is looking for something to sizzle their kindles or computers up for a while." - Kelly Shrewsbury, Itmann Books Examiner, http://tinyurl.com/249pa3f
"...Feral Heat is well worth diving into for readers who like werewolf romance stories with a seductive and furry edge. I was entertained and quite happy to get to know Grant and Sam and even Grant’s pet dog was sort of cute in a loopy way. There’s a lot to like in this book and I’m certainly glad I read it." - Xeranthemum, Long and Short Reviews, Whipped Cream, http://tinyurl.com/6agdnza
Grant and Sam were more than lovers; they shared a special secret. They also shared Grant’s roommate, Amelia, who was beginning to get suspicious about the two hunky males who disappeared every month. The sexy trio was not without their crises: Grant and Sam had a curse that continued to dog them, and Amelia’s soon-to-be ex had a bite that was as bad as his bark. It’s a howlin’ sexy time when author Elizabeth Black turns up the – Feral Heat.
Grant stretched out on the grass, arms behind his head and legs extended, waiting for Sam's gentle touch. When Sam's hand stroked his chest, his heart skipped, even Sam's slightest touch aroused him. He felt his cock twitch in anticipation of what he knew was coming. Sex will take my mind off my hunger. There's nothing as distracting as a good blow job, especially from Sam. Grant relished Sam's exquisite blow jobs, and he knew Sam would not disappoint him now. I need him, need his touch on me, anything to take my mind off this burning need for flesh. Sam's lips brushed Grant's shoulder, and then traveled down his chest to rest near his groin. Grant closed his eyes so he could fully enjoy Sam's kiss, waiting until he felt those soft lips against his cock.
Sam's lips wrapped around Grant's cock, and in response Grant dug his fingers into the earth. With a gentle movement, those lips and mouth stroked his shaft, making him jump in Sam's mouth. No other man ever had this kind of effect on me. I melt in his arms at his mere touch. Sam's tongue, slick and warm, flicked in circles around Grant's shaft, and Grant felt his erection grow harder as Sam's tongue moved faster around him. Sam alternated between stroking Grant's shaft with his tongue and then sucking hard on his head, all the while rolling his balls in his hand. Grant moaned and stiffened as Sam took all of him deep into his mouth, sucking and licking, driving him wild. Grant grabbed Sam's head, pushing him harder against his cock, taking in his entire length, and Grant felt so close to coming his heart raced in his chest.

Elizabeth Black continues her ribald Indiscretions series with Indiscretions: Vol. II. These two short stories follow the amorous adventures of Caryn as she wings her way across country to a writer’s convention. In THE MILE HIGH CLUB, Caryn has a high altitude fling with the sexy Jeremy. Their encounter isn’t without comic complications, but a very good time is had by all. The action continues in ROOM SERVICE, when Caryn and Jeremy meet a mutual friend and the sexual action is three-times hotter!
EXCERPT - THE MILE HIGH CLUB
"May I take this seat?"
She was startled out of her reverie by the most delicious man she had ever seen. Dark brown hair fell in the brightest blue eyes she had ever seen. The smile he gave her showed off deep dimples in each cheek. His dark grey suit and silk tie shouted money. The body encased in that suit had broad shoulders and what she strongly suspected were six-pack abs from workouts at a private gym. He was serious man-candy! His gaze moved from her face to her tits – exactly why she bought them in the first place.
"Of course. Would you like to share some champagne?"
He sat down. "I'd love some champagne.”
"Lovely, my name is Caryn. I'm on my way to California."
"I'm Jeremy. I'm heading to California, too. Business or pleasure?"
Oh, it'll be my business to pleasure you! "A little of both. Convention near San Diego."
"Same here. Are you staying at the Hotel Del Coronado?"
"Yes! That's where the convention is being held. Are you staying there, too?"
"I sure am. Talk about a small world," He looked her up and down, taking in her heart-shaped face and brand new tits in one swoop. He moved his arm to rest one hand on a shapely leg, just below her skirt's hem. "You're very sexy." His fingers pressed into the soft skin above her knee.
She moved her legs apart to give him greater access to her pussy, which was just starting to warm up. She wanted to feel his fingers against her clit, all the way up here in First Class 35,000 feet above the ground. Does that mean I’m part of the Mile High Club? And all this time she thought that was an urban legend. "You're very sexy, too. I love the dimples."
EXCERPT - ROOM SERVICE
"Takeshi!" She was so happy to see him she couldn't help but give him a bear hug, nearly lifting him off his feet. A lingering buss on the cheek hid the lust she felt for him. Although he did not express his passion towards her with the same fervor, she knew he was as aroused by her mere presence as she, judging by his quick intake of breath. Takeshi was an honorable and subtle man who exuded class. She turned to Jeremy. "Do you two know each other?"
"Yes," Jeremy said. "We met last year." Am I mistaken or do I see the hint-of-past-lover whimsy in their eyes? "It's good to see you again, Takeshi."
"Such a small world," Takeshi said. "I have a gift for you, Caryn." He held out a hardback book. "My first book, published this year by Harper Collins. I autographed it for you."
"Congratulations!" Caryn squealed as she took the book. "So you finally did it!"
"I knew you would get published," Jeremy said. "It was just a matter of time."
She wanted to spend more alone time with these two scrumptious men. Would they be up for a threesome? Both of them were clearly into her, she gazed at the two men – and into each other? "Let me put the book in my room. Please come in. I have wine if you'd like some."
"I never turn down free wine. Count me in!" The three of them entered Caryn's room which in her mind still smelled like sex. Sweat and a lingering scent of strawberry lube, a heady combination. She wondered if Takeshi would notice. He must have noticed something was up since she and Jeremy had left her room the moment Takeshi approached her. She poured wine into three plastic glasses and handed them out. If she was going to enjoy more dalliances she welcomed the relaxing mood a glass of wine would give her.

Babeland Review - Best Women's Erotica 2010
Being a writer of erotic literature, I was delighted to sit down and devour Best Women's Erotica 2010. This particular series is very well respected in erotic quarters, as are both the publisher Cleis Press and the editor, VioletBlue. I saw many familiar names penning the stories such as K. D. Grace, Rachel Kramer Bussel, Sommer Marsden, and Alyson Tyler. I've had internet contact with some of them via my own submission process and Facebook. The stories with in this book are cream of the crop; the best erotic short fiction out there.
This particular book is geared towards straight women with women as protagonists. You will find no subjugation of women within the pages, and each female character stars in her own sexually empowering and exciting story. The eighteen stories are contemporary and very imaginative. They are also so hot you'll need to turn on the air conditioning, even in the dead of winter with snow on the ground. Case in point is K. D. Grace's story "Veggin", which was one of the first ones I read. Although I'm sure many women have either imagined or actually used carrots, zucchini, and cucumbers as sex toys, Grace ratchets up the heat level with some very descriptive and sensuous action regarding a woman invading her sexy male neighbor's vegetable garden. Food continues to be a major theme in Bussel's story "Secret Service", which is about a food establishment catering to women that offers another form of sensuous pleasure behind closed doors. I won't spoil the story by saying what that is. You'll have to read the book to find out!
This book is ideal for couples reading sexy stories to each other by candlelight to set a sensuous mood before a night of hot sex. Or enjoy them on your own in the bath up to your neck in fragrant bubbles. I read several of these stories more than once because I was in the mood for them and because they really are that good.
This book isn't rote fucking in a Penthouse Letters style. These are very well-written stories with plot and character development. Plus they are only about 5,000 words each, which is quite a mean feat when it comes to kick-ass writing. Short stories are not easy to write. You have to get a lot of information out there - with the emotion that goes with it - in only a few thousand words. If this is your first time reading erotic literature or if you're tired of wasting your time with poorly-written smut, definitely pick up a copy of this book. You won't be sorry.

Author: Elizabeth Black
Length: 7,467 words 36 pp (PDF)
Category: Erotic, Cougar, Romance, Humor
From the Romance Divine Mistress of Mayhem, Elizabeth Black, come two ribald tales of neighborly lust. Kevin was enamored with his older neighbor, sexy Cougar Betsy, and their clandestine trysts were bawdy bouts of passion. The lovers are surprised by the arrival of Betsy’s husband and Kevin’s rooftop escape is blocked by an angry avian aggressor. It’s man versus seagull in CAUGHT. In WILD CHILD a ginger root becomes the terrible tuber as the lovers get to the bottom of a new kind of love.
Excerpt from CAUGHT:
Kevin grabbed her tits and bounced them together like croquet balls. Betsy pushed him out of the way with one stockinged foot. She pressed both hands against Kevin's chest, and shoved him onto his back. She reached for the metal tin on her bedroom dresser. Bottles of scented and flavored oil sat on that dresser within reach of any of Betsy's fantasies. Right now, she had a Blowjob Goddess fantasy.
Kevin crawled around the bedroom dressed only in his Jocko's briefs. At twenty-nine, he was at an age where he could get away with wearing Jockos without requiring the little old ladies in the neighborhood to use eye bleach if they ever caught sight of him. Those little old ladies would cluck like the hens they were if they saw him crawling on all fours around Betsy Palmer's bedroom while her husband was at work. Kevin often had nightmares of Dean walking in and catching them together; Betsy with her bony ankles locked around his waist, him with his hairy ass up in the air, giving Dean the "I'm boinking your wife" salute. Despite that fear, Kevin was a thrill-seeker, just like Betsy, so they chose to carry on many of their trysts in her bedroom, just because of the high danger quotient.
What excited Kevin about Betsy was that she was a hot forty-seven to his twenty-nine. When he moved in next door, and saw her luscious ass as she leaned over in her garden pruning deadheads off of her daisy patch, he knew he’d found some prime cougar meat. It had been a dream of his to sink his teeth into a cougar, but he’d never met one until the Lust Gods dropped Betsy in his lap.
He knew where Betsy hid because she always hid in the same place. The fun was wondering what she was or was not wearing. Betsy was loads of fun, which was one of the reasons Kevin liked her so much. She was Hell On Wheels in the sex department, but he had a soft spot in his heart for her. And a hard spot on his dick for her.
He tiptoed to the closet door, and rapped his bare knuckles on the wood.
"Olly olly oxen free! I want you to come on me!"
"Old King Cole was a merry old soul and a merry old soul was he! With a cock for his wife and a fuck for his slut and a suck for his minstrels three!"
Kevin flung the door open. Betsy squealed and jumped in his arms. She wore a black crotchless teddy and fishnet stockings. She pressed her full breasts into his face. While her breasts drooped a bit with age, there wasn't much fat on her body, which was tanned and toned. Her tummy was a bit soft, but Kevin liked the feel of her soft flesh beneath his fingers. It was obvious she worked out. Kevin wondered if she had a little nip here and a little tuck there, but he was too polite to ask. His cougar just celebrated her birthday, and she was hotter than a fried egg on a steaming car hood during the Dog Days of August.
"My, aren't you the little slut? Love the outfit. Did the tits come with it?"
"The tits go where I go. You better love it; you bought it for me."
"Let me break it in."
He carried her to the bed. Both of them landed so hard on the mattress that Betsy's perfume bottles jangled on the dresser. She let out a laugh that sounded like a mule braying; Betsy was not known for her decorum. Kevin didn't care because all he was interested in was sticking his rock hard wang in her hot, sticky cooze. And she wanted him so bad she could taste his jizz before he even shot it in her mouth.
Excerpt from WILD CHILD:
The plug slowly slid into his rectum. He clenched his muscles around it, waiting for the heat he wanted so badly. Figging was new to both of them, although they had read about it months ago on the Internet. As Betsy said, if they read it on the Internet, it must be true.
The raccoon coat slid to the floor. The outfit was new. He had never seen it before. She wore a crimson corset that left her breasts bare and ready for his eager lips. Crotchless panties filled out the costume. Her glistening pussy enfolded a remote controlled butterfly vibrator. When did she buy that? I didn't get it for her. Wouldn't it be a hoot if Dean bought it? Or a fuck buddy I don't know about?
She placed a small box on the bedroom dresser, and turned a knob. The butterfly hummed against her clit. She was ready for some action.
At the sight of her red public hairs playing "boo" with him, his dick got hard again. With his dick going up and down, hard and semi-soft, he had an aching case of blue balls. Only Betsy could relieve his distress.
She tore at his t-shirt. He pulled it over his head, and tossed it on the floor. The jeans came off next. With one hand, he twirled the Jocko around over his head, and tossed it across the room. Naked and standing at attention, he lay on the bed, ready for her to ravish his body.
"Are all these toys for me?"
"You bet. Use whatever you want."
She grabbed the bottle of warming lube, and held up one of the ginger plugs.
"Let's play proctologist."
"You make it sound so clinical." He turned over on his back.
He felt lube drip down the crack of his ass. At least she had the decency to warm it up in her palms before letting it drip on her skin. Her breath blew on him, warming the lube as she rubbed it into his ass and around his anus. That warmth was a good feeling, and he wanted more of it. He scooted up the mattress a bit so that his asshole would be more accessible to her. She rubbed the plug along the edge of his anus, teasing his tender skin but not inserting the plug.

I hate Christmas, with all the good cheer, mawkish and overly sentimental holiday movies, the Lifetime channel, the higher electric bill from putting up all the lights, having to spend time with dysfunctional family members, and fruitcake. The same fruitcake that has been circulating for the past twenty years. It's a doorstop, not a fruitcake.
Okay, I lie. I like some of those movies, mostly "A Charlie Brown Christmas" and "A Christmas Story". I might even break down, make some spiked egg nog, and watch Santa Claus Conquers The Martians. It has Santa, martians, and Pia Zadora. What's not to love? And of course there's Dead End, which is about a cranky, dysfunctional family taking the scenic route to Grandmas for Christmas dinner. Hey, it stars Ray Wise, so you know it's gonna be good. Even the Tomato Meter gave it a good rating. We watch this one every year as our traditional Christmas movie.
I like decorating the house, although I've been so sick this fall I still have yet to remove the Halloween decorations. And now that we have a free fake tree, no more fricking pine needles!!! I even liked the house in the south covered with so many Christmas light the birds were fooled into thinking we had Thirty Days Of Light.
This brings me to one of my favorite memories when I was a kid in the 1960s. Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners were always amusing. One year at my aunt's, my cousin and I were playing on the floor in the living room while the men watched football. My uncle had just bought a brand new, state of the art remote controlled Zenith. This was the 1960s so such a TV was a sign you made it in the world, at least in my family's circle. My uncle showed off his new TV, turning channels and turning the thing on and off with the remote. Wow, you didn't need to get off the couch to change the channel! The first generation of couch potatoes were born. I wore a charm bracelet that we figured out pretty quick was turning off the TV - right during the kick off! I couldn't have timed it better. Turned out the frequency of my charm bracelet matched the frequency of the brand new remote controlled Zenith my uncle had recently bought, and whenever I shook the bracelet hard enough, the TV would turn off. So my cousin and I kept waiting for the most important moment in the game and I'd shake my charm bracelet. The men were getting very mad and I thought my uncle was going to toss a brick through the TV. He pounded on its side and got very frustrated. Finally, my aunt figured out what we were doing and she took my charm bracelet - after we gave the men a demonstration. Everyone was impressed. Everyone wanted to kill me.
I include a version of that true story in my erotic Christmas short story "Tinsel Temptations'. This story is based on my fondest childhood Christmas and Thanksgiving memories when I was a kid in the 1960s. I didn't live in a "Mad Men" world in that era, since I grew up in a working class neighborhood. "Tinsel Temptations" takes my own holiday memories and adds some very hot sex to them. John Jones and his "not really his cousin" Jessica are 21 and 19 respectively, yet they are still stuck at the kid's table for Christmas dinner. Remember the kid's table? If you want a laugh out loud, sexy read, check out my Christmas story, "Tinsel Temptations".
And now it's time for "Santa Claus Conquers The Martians". We have the MST3K version. Good times!

TINSEL TEMPTATIONS - BLURB:
It was another Christmas for John Jones, with his parents, family and friends. The highlight of such gatherings was always the visit of his ‘I’m-not-really-your-cousin’ Jessica and their bedroom frolics while the family were otherwise occupied. This year, Jessica bought something new—the girls! Over the last year Jessica had filled out—and out. Her new shape had John mesmerized, and decorating the tree took on a whole ‘nuther meaning when the holidays bring their Tinsel Temptations.

Show A Zombie Some Love!
Today I have a guest blogger - Paige Tyler. Give her a great welcome!
Thanks so much for letting me guest blog today!
Readers often ask me how I come up with ideas for my books, so I thought I'd give you a little behind-the-scenes peek at how I came up with my new release, a paranormal erotic romance from Ellora's Cave called DEAD SEXY.
Before I say anything else though, isn't that cover too hot for words?! When the art department sent it to me, I probably gazed at it for a good ten minutes in mouth-drooling appreciation before I could email them back telling the artist it not only rocked, but totally fit the book. The hero is "Dead Sexy," after all!
Okay, back to the story and how I came up with it. First, to set the stage, I need to share a little something with you about myself. Well, about my hubby and me, actually. We love zombie movies, from the George Romero gems to Shaun of the Dead and everything in between, including "Walking Dead," the new series on AMC. You just can't go wrong with a movie full of walking dead people, can you? Well, if you've ever seen a zombie movie (or even you haven't), then you know the creatures aren't the heroes of the film. I mean, how can they be, right? They're all dead and decayed and downright unattractive, not to mention pretty damn scary. Which was why you can imagine my surprise when my hubby suggested I write an erotic romance about a zombie hero. I was like, you're kidding, right? What woman in her right mind would fall in love with a dead guy? No way could that possibly work, or so I thought.
Turns out, my hubby wasn't kidding. In fact, he started working up ideas for the story.
"The hero didn't have to be a zombie all the time," he told me. "Think outside the box - take a little literary license!"
Okay, I thought. I suppose I could be open minded.
My hubby told me that in his out-of-the-box world, the hunky hero got cursed by an evil Voodoo priestess and only turns into a zombie sometimes.
"I'm listening," I said.
"And when he does go zombie, he doesn't have to be like the kind in the movies," my hubby added. "Well, he has to look like one, you know all dead and stuff, but he doesn't have to be a mindless creature or attack humans or eat anything gross."
So, brains are completely out, thanks goodness!
"Think Jensen Ackles or Jared Padelecki, with a really, really, really dark tan - (yes, my hubby knows I've got a thing for the Supernatural hunks!) - well, maybe more gray and black than tan, but you get the idea."
I thought about that for a minute. "So, the hero's dead, but he's still sexy, is that what you're saying?"
"Exactly," he said, giving me a grin as my eyes lit up with understanding.
By that point, my hubby had pretty much sold me on the idea. Of course, I knew if I ran with it, I was going to have to sell it to a publisher, and I knew that could be tough since the hero is a zombie. But I ran with it anyway and ended up with a full-length novel. And it came out pretty damn good, if I do say so myself! I still had to find a publisher for it, though.
About this same time, It just so happens that several of my other books were in the process of being picked up by Ellora's Cave and I thought what the heck? Why not pitch it to my editor there and see what she thinks? So I did, and she told me to send it to her. She was interested to see how I handled the whole zombie-thing. Well, long story, short, she liked it. A lot! My zombie romance with it's dead-sexy hero had a home! I was thrilled and my hubby walked around for a week with a smug, "I-told-you-so" look on his face.
I've been getting the word out there about DEAD SEXY ever since I signed the contract for it and I'm thrilled with the interest from readers who can't wait to get their hands on it! I can't wait for them to read it, too!
Now that I've revealed the story behind the story, I thought I'd share the blurb and an excerpt just to whet your appetite for more!
Romance author Simone Kent thinks she might just have found the most perfect guy in all of New York City - in bed and out. But Drake Parrish is about as far from perfect as any man can get. Eight years ago, he was cursed by an evil Voodoo priestess to live part of his life as a zombie. Since then, he has lived like a recluse on New York’s Upper East Side, afraid to go out for fear he’ll suddenly turn into one of the walking dead.
The sex if the hottest either of them has ever experienced and Simone discovers just how naughty she can be with Drake, while he finds himself feeling things for her that he hasn’t felt in a very long time. When the Voodoo priestess learns of their relationship, however, she comes after him again. She is determined to make sure he won’t have a future with Simone, even if that means killing both him and the woman he loves.
As she led him up the steps to the second floor, Drake found himself wondering if she would ask him in. And wondering what he’d say if she did. When they came to a stop outside the door to her apartment, Simone turned to give him a smile.
“I had a great time tonight.”
She caught her bottom lip between her perfect white teeth and chewed on it thoughtfully as if unsure what she wanted to say next. It was probably an unconscious gesture, something she did whenever she was thinking, but to him, it was sexy as hell and all he could think about was kissing her.
Surely, one kiss couldn’t hurt. He desperately wanted to. He hadn’t kissed a woman in so long. It would be nice to see if he still remembered how.
Before he could stop himself, Drake tilted Simone’s face up to his and pressed his mouth to hers.
She tasted just as sweet and delicious as he thought she would. Her lips were soft and pliant under his as she kissed him back, her tongue eagerly seeking his out.
Drake groaned and slid his hand into her hair, deepening the kiss. Simone sighed into his mouth, running her hands up the front of his shirt to grasp his shoulders. The feel of her touch was like a tonic to his deprived soul and he let out another groan, deeper this time.
He ran his free hand up her side and around to her breast, cupping it through the soft material of her dress. He couldn’t stop himself and apparently, Simone didn’t want him to. She moaned and arched against him. He could feel the heat of her pussy through their clothes as she pressed up against his hard cock. Damn, she felt good.
Drake drew her bottom lip into his mouth and gently suckled on it before slowly kissing his way along the delicate curve of her jaw. Simone clutched his shoulders and tilted her head back. He eagerly trailed a path of hot kisses down her neck, then back up, his mouth finding hers again. Simone looped her arms around his neck, pulling him in even closer as their tongues met.
Down the hall, a door slammed, reminding him where they were.
Drake dragged his mouth away from hers, his breathing ragged as he tried to regain control. He had to get it together because he was about five seconds away from doing something really stupid. Like taking her to bed. “I should go.”
Her lips curved into a sexy, flirtatious smile. “Or you could stay.”
God, how he wanted to. But as much as he’d love to spend the rest of the night exploring every inch of her body, he couldn’t take the chance he might go zombie on her right in the middle of sex. Talk about coitus interruptus, And it had already been almost four days since he last turned, which meant he was already pushing his luck.
“You don’t know how much I want to,” he groaned. “But I can’t.”
Simone looked up at him with those big, blue eyes. “Why not?”
“Because I…” He hesitated, trying to come up with something that would sound believable. “I have a column due in the morning and I haven’t even started on it yet.” She knew all about deadlines, so she would understand that. Besides, he did have a column to write, it just wasn’t due until next week. “Rain check?”
She looked disappointed, but she smiled anyway. “Absolutely. How does coming over for dinner tomorrow night sound?”
It would be crazy to agree when he could be so close to having an episode, but he couldn’t say no. Not when she asked in that soft, sultry voice. “Sounds great.”
“Good. Be here at seven.”
“Seven it is.”
She pulled him down for another long, slow kiss on the mouth. “Don’t be late.”
His mouth twitched. “I won’t.” He bent his head to kiss her again, then groaned. “If I don’t go now, I’ll be here all night.”
Simone laughed. “Would that be such a bad thing?”
“Not to me, but my editor at Money Issues might not be too understanding when he doesn’t find my column sitting in his inbox tomorrow.”
She sighed. “Deadlines can be a real pain in the butt sometimes. Okay, go home and write your column. I’ll cuddle up with a bowl of ice cream instead.”
He chuckled. “Sounds better than taking a cold shower, which is what I’m going to be doing when I get home.” He closed his mouth over hers once more. “See you tomorrow night, beautiful.”
Resisting the urge to pull her into his arms again, Drake turned and walked down the hallway toward the stairwell. At the top of the steps, he glanced over his shoulder to see Simone standing where he’d left her, a sexy curve to her lips.
It took every ounce of strength he possessed not to go back and pin her against the door for one more long, lingering kiss. God, what he wouldn’t give to spend the night with her. Man, it was going to take more than a cold shower to get her out of his head.
