Is It Getting HOT In Here?!

This awesome blogfest is hosted by Hope Roberson of Writing With Hope and Cassie Mae of Reading, Writing and Lovin' it.

The gist of it:
Those kissy scenes are challenging to write, but I love reading one when it's crafted so well it feels like I'm standing beside the characters, watching with inflamed cheeks as sparks fly between the two lovebirds.

Please share one of your favorite kissing scenes from a book you've read, from your own WiP, make one up, or write about one of your own memorable kisses. Then hop around to feel how sweet, romantic, or downright steamy other characters are getting smooched!


I look up and find him staring at me. His gaze makes me feel hot all over. I lift my hand and run my finger over the almost invisible scar on his chest. He shivers at my touch. Gently, he reaches out and cups my face in his hand, brushing his thumb over my cheekbone. I lean forward to meet his kiss. My hands slide down over his jacket and slip beneath the hem of his T-shirt. His skin is warm, smooth. I skim my fingers across his back, feeling the ridges of his spine and—

—that's where I have to stop, I'm afraid! The remainder of that sentence contains a spoiler - bonus points if you can guess what it is ;-)

*gasp* You leave us hanging?!?!?! Very fun ;)

David P. King said...

Tsk. That's not fair. Just when I was starting to get into it (this must be really weird coming from a guy, huh?). Awesome writing! :)

Kittie Howard said...

Wow. *fans self* Reminds me of Rosemary Rogers and "The Wolf and the Dove." What a great read that was!

Do you REALLY want me to guess? wouldn't that be classified info at this stage? haha

Amy said...

Great tease! Happy Valentines Day and thank you for sharing - so needed that! :)

Dawn Ius said...

Can't guess, but enjoyed it. :0)

Lori M. Lee said...

Let's see... wings? :) Great snippet!

We're in the same YA campaign group. Just wanted to stop by and say hi!

Theresa said...

No don't stop there! Loved it even if I'm dying to know what happens next :)New follower *waves*

Shell Flower said...

Yeah, lovely scene. I like the wings idea. I was thinking some sort of paranormal "parts".

Crystal Licata said...

AH! You left us hanging! I want to know what happens. Great job! :)

Adrianne Russell said...

Tease! Well done. :)

Rachel Morgan said...

Thanks for all the comments :-)
And no, it's not wings. And it's not any "paranormal body parts" either!

Ashley Nixon said...

Oh my! This was such a tease! Great job!

Morgan said...

Finally able to tag you back! Woot! Woot! Thanks, girl: http://morganshamy.blogspot.com/2012/02/my-turn.html

Brooke R. Busse said...

Not wings, huh? Does he have some weird injury then?

Julia King said...

Cliffhanger? Ugh... How mean. hehe Very nice smooching scene. :D

Angela M. said...

Oh so hot!!! If it's not wings, I'd guess it has to be a gun or knife or some kind of weapon. I could be wrong, but I sense a buzzkill coming. It always happens when steamy naughtiness is about to unfold, lol.

Thanks for coming by my blog! I've got some catching up to do with the campaign (just signed up under the wire).

Lisa L. Regan said...

That's awesome! Well done!

Cassie Mae said...

I was really getting into that and you cut me off, lol. I love the traveling up the back. Sexy!

Hope Roberson said...

Super teaser! Great job! I love your writing :) I would have to go with wings too :) A hot angel guy, nice!

LynNerdKelley said...

I agree with the others, you left us hanging and we want to know what's next! I was going to guess she felt part of his tail, thinking he's part were-wolf but since it's not a paranormal part, then I guessed wrong! A weapon is a good guess. Or money? That wouldn't be a spoiler, though. You got us. Hope we find out soon!
