This is my first time participating in Sneak Peak Sunday. I'll be sharing a short passage from my current work in progress, Light And Shadow, which is Sam Kerrigan's story. Sam and Rikki, my heroine are chaperoning a group of high school students in the woods on a nighttime photography club field trip. Things are about to heat up for them...
Sam returned the smile, brightening his eyes to a sky blue and popping those dimples again. She looked around to check for listening ears and carefully lowered her voice. “Yeah, being a girl can suck some days. But every once in a while, a gorgeous man comes along and makes me remember why I like being a woman.”
Shifting her body to block any stray glances, she reached a finger toward his cheek, caressing the dimple as she chewed her lip. Sam turned his head a little to the right and his tongue snuck out to make a wet lap on her fingertip, groaning softly as he did.
Loud laughter behind them broke the spell Rikki had fallen under when she’d touched his stubbled cheek. Smiling ruefully, she shook her head to clear the lusty fog enveloping them. Good heavens, she was going to have to work hard to hide her true feelings from him and their audience of teens.
“Weren’t you going to start a fire?” she asked, surprised by the husky quality of her voice.
“Hmm, maybe I already did.”
“Yes you did, but I was talking about a campfire.”
“There you go, being a killjoy again.”
She giggled as backed away from him. “Sorry, one of us needs to be the adult here. I’m going to go help the kids set up their equipment.”
She pivoted and walked away, knowing beyond a shadow of a doubt that if she turned she’d find his eyes glued to her butt. The certainty, and the low moan she heard behind her made her put a little extra sass in the sway in her hips.
