I was stopping by here to put in a short post when I realized I hadn’t shared an excerpt here for Lover’s Return. Since I plan to share an excerpt of Lover’s Claim soon, I decided that now would be a good time to give you a taste of Charleigh and Jericho’s story.
Well, there’s also the fact that I began thinking about it because of a portion of the RHACafe Valentine’s event we were asked to pick out a perfect Valentine hero from our books. Because of his focus on Charleigh and making her happy, doing what he thought she needed, Jericho was it for me.
The following is a short excerpt from Lover’s Return.
“This is kidnapping, Jericho.” She folded her arms across her chest. He could wait as long as he liked. She wasn’t going back in there with him. “I came here to get away from you.”
Jericho wouldn’t hesitate to toss her over his shoulder. She knew once she got that close to him again, she’d want more. The attraction had always been explosive. Even now, her skin tingled and seemed hypersensitive where he’d touched her.
“You came to plot your next move. Knowing that I’d be going out of my mind wondering where you were was a bonus.” Jericho stepped out and grasped her hand, tugging her back into the house. “And you came here on your own. So not kidnapping.”
“Unlawful detaining or whatever. You know I don’t want to be with you.” She glared at him, but followed along without making a fuss.
He led her into the living room. The light-cream-colored walls normally gave the room an open, welcoming feeling. Usually she felt safe and at home here amid the large comfortable furniture. With Jericho here, that all changed. The walls seemed to be closing in on her and every piece of furniture sent her mind straight to thoughts of sex.
As the passed an overstuffed black chair, she saw herself bent over the back of it with Jericho behind her, his cock driving into her. She could almost feel the pop of his hand as it landed on her hip. The muscles in her pussy clenched as a wave of need washed through her.
Her eyes skittered away from the innocent piece of furniture and landed on the coffee table. An image of her on her back on top of it immediately slammed into her. Jericho knelt at the end of it between her thighs. He kissed his way up her thigh and swept his tongue over the lips of her pussy. His tongue dipped between even as his fingers joined in teasing her. She shivered at the thought. She’d always loved the way he used his lips and tongue.
