Happy Wednesday! Over on Twitter, the theme for #1lineWed is “taste or smell”. I was really tempted to default to the Moonstruck books because…Wolves! 😆 However, I’ll stick with cowgirls this week. Here are some snippets from the upcoming THE COWGIRL’S LITTLE SECRET.
In this first one, Jolie has agreed to let CJ spend the night with Cord at the Barron’s ranch. Cord, being all sneaky and
shitstuff, set up a cook out and convinced Jolie to at least stay for dinner.
“I’m going home.”
His laughter surrounded her, so rich and warm it tasted like s’mores on her tongue and she wavered for a moment.
“Are you sure I can’t convince you to stay for the sleepover?”
“I am not sleeping with you, Cordell Barron. Not tonight. Not ever.”
She’d look up at odd moments to catch him watching her, something hot and sexy in his gaze, as if she was every bit as delicious as that steak as he was savoring. Jolie would get fascinated by his mouth, his lips, and she really wanted to taste them.
“Are you finished, Jolie?”
She jerked her gaze to his eyes—the ones twinkling even as his mouth curved up in that irritating grin of his. The waiter stood patiently, holding Cord’s plate.
“Oh. Yes. I am. Thank you.”
The man whisked her plate away and handed both sets of dishes off to a hovering busboy. “Will you be enjoying dessert tonight?”
Jolie knew what she’d like to have for dessert and by the way Cord was looking at her, he was imagining her covered in chocolate and whipped cream. Just to tease him, she ordered cheesecake.
Is anyone else getting hungry? Or thirsty?
He cupped her cheeks and kissed her, his tongue teasing the seam of her lips until her jaw relaxed and he could taste her mouth. Margarita and chocolate. Those were two tastes that shouldn’t work together, but in her mouth? Perfect. He broke the kiss, resting his forehead against hers. “I’m going to make love to you, Jolie. It won’t be as good or as thorough as I’d wanted for our first time back together—”
We’ll save the scents for another day. How about y’all? Do you have any tastes you want to share from your WIPs or maybe from the book you’re currently reading?
