This week, I'm delighted to bring you a selection from my upcoming release, Exposed To Passion. This is book #3 in the Five Senses Series, featuring fan favorite, Sam Kerrigan. Here's s look at the first meeting between Sam and Rikki Salerno. Enjoy.
She slammed into the silt on the creek bottom. Her shoulder blade zinged painfully when
it made contact with a sharp rock buried in the sediment. Her breath expelled in a harsh gasp on
impact. Cold, brackish water closed over her head and invaded her nose and mouth. Fighting her
way to the surface, she coughed, spitting to clear her mouth and sinuses.
Son of a—! Rikki wheezed a breath into her watery lungs and bit back angry words. She
struggled to get to her feet.
She flinched as water splashed over her head again when the man jumped into the creek.
Reaching under her arms to help her up, his big, warm hands connected with her breasts,
covering them as he lifted. He steadied her from behind, spooning her with his chest and hips the
way a lover might. His sharp gasp was barely audible over her coughing. As soon as she
regained her equilibrium, he dropped his hands to her waist and dug his fingers into the flesh
above her hips. Any other time, she might welcome the pressure. But not now, soaking wet, with
a complete stranger, in front of an audience.
“Oh, jeez, I’m sorry.” He splashed backward, his tone apologetic.
Rikki scrubbed her hands over her face and hair, slicking briny water away. A quick
glance to the shore assured her that the camera had remained on dry land.
The photography club stood on the bank, staring at the spectacle—water trickling down
her face, clothes clinging like second skin. The males, in particular, hungrily eyed her chest in all
its wet T-shirt glory.
Poor Rikki. Doused in a cold creek and rescued by her breasts. Her day went south fast. But good things are in store for her soon. Thanks for stopping by. Now click here to hop on over to read more fabulous snippets from the other Sneak Peek authors.
