A Kiss for Valentine's Day

The Indelibles are hosting an INDIE-Kissing blog fest!
Share a smoochable scene from your current wip or published work; provide tips on writing kissing or romance scenes; list your favorite books, movies, etc (with kissing, of course); write about kissing - your first kiss, perhaps; or suggest ideas for an affordable romantic date night.

I'm not ready to share any smoochable scenes from the book I'm currently working on (but trust me, they are good!) so here's something from a book that's already out there...

~  ~  ~


     “I have to go anyway,” I tell Nate. I turn and scribble a spell across his wall. A doorway to the faerie paths materializes, but before I can step through, Nate grabs my arm. He spins me around and presses his mouth to mine. I melt against him, my eyes closing. The world disappears, and it’s just the two of us, my hands rising to caress his face, his fingers sliding down to the small of my back, pressing me closer to him. My head spins, sounds disappear, and I feel weightless.
      Nate pulls away from me. “Now you can go,” he says with a wink, pushing me gently backward through the doorway. 

... and several chapters later ...

     I lean into him, snaking my arm over his chest. His lips move down, brushing over my cheek bone. I raise my head, and he fits his mouth to mine. My lips open automatically. I feel his hands moving along my arms, raising goose bumps as they go. He pulls me closer until I’m lying across his chest. I feel the pounding of his heart and the pressure of his hands against my shoulder blades. The kiss becomes more urgent. His fingers knot in my hair, and my hands find their way beneath the hem of his T-shirt. All sound is lost in the dizzying rush of blood through my veins.


These smoochable moments were taken from THE FAERIE GUARDIAN, which you can find at Amazon, B&N, iBookstore, and Smashwords. You can also read the first part of the book for free!

*sigh* I love me some good kissing scenes on V-day! Very nice!

I'm going to go sign up for this in about an hour. That's when my kids will be gone for school and I can record my "Almost Kiss" podcast I had planned. Hopefully that will still fit in with this blogfest.

I like Nate and Vi and I like the fact poor Vi isn't sure what to do with him or her fascination with him. :-)
