Last week Jayden challenged Miguel to seduce Sydney as voluntary submission was far more erotic than force. Sydney is off balance and unsure what is going on, but the cold ball of fear that had curled tight in her stomach finally releases. She is about to discover that Jayden has a few moves. We are in her point of view and Jayden speaks first.
“Let me show you.”
Distracted by Jayden’s smile and the way he didn’t seem to take anything seriously she didn’t see him move. He wrapped both arms around her, pulled her close against his chest and kissed her.
His lips were firm but soft. Where she had expected coercion she got seduction. His lips teased her; force she could have fought, but his approach left her helpless to fend off. It had been too long since she had kissed a man. And Jayden was a formidable kisser who left her hungry for more.
I have started on my next WIP, a steampunk novella (that’s the planned length, but my books tend to end up longer than expected a lot of the times;) set in the same world as my upcoming Christmas novella Dirigibles Are Forever. My outline is incredibly detailed: The hero and villain talk. Things happen. The Black Moment approaches. I may have to think a little more before I start on those scenes;). It’s nice to be writing again and my heroine Vanessa intrigues me to no end. I’ll start sharing once I have a few words down.
Have an amazing week and as always Happy Writing!
Here is the blurb:
Sydney Radnall is no man’s toy, despite fate’s attempt to make her just that. A kidnapping puts her at the mercy of a sadistic Feral commander. Being held prisoner is bad enough, but her Naema blood is powerful. In her current Vampiric company her presence is like ringing a dinner bell.
In an attempt to break the commander makes her the pet of two of his lieutenants. Miguel is one of the most dangerous men she has ever met, but she can’t stop the attraction blazing between them. Then there is Jayden, a Vampire who is as surprising as he is sexy. Two Vampires she should not be attracted to, should not want to surrender to, should not trust.
But things aren’t always what they seem. Secrets and lies shadow their connections, making it impossible to see clearly. What are the chances of her finding lifemates while surrounded by enemies? And making the wrong decision could not just shatter her heart. It could cost her life.

Oh yeah- when you haven’t been kissed in ages and then he’s GOOD! Hate it when that happens. 🙂 Love the way his tenderness has caught her off guard.
Your next project sounds intriguing!
Lol, thank you, Christina.
I like this Jayden fellow, even if he is an evil vampire. Can’t wait to see what moves Miguel has!
Thank you, Alexis. I’ll try and make sure to share some of Miguel’s move in my final snippet next week;).
I love how he takes her by surprise. Great descriptions of the kiss!
Thank you, Lashell.
Oh boy, this does not bode well for her. He’s gonna sweep her off her lips : )
Lip sweeping is a good experience, Millie. Tantalizing eight, Tina.
Sounds like quite a kiss.
Seduction is so sexy. It doesn’t happen often enough in romance novels. Nice to see it here.
He’s keeping her body safe, and endangering her heart. But it’s more fun that way!
Whew! I’d give in, too! 🙂
I like how she’s not just responding to the sex here, but to the promise of intimacy. She must need a serious hug about now. 🙂
She is about to get more than a serious hug;).
Smoooth…but I’m waiting to see what moves Miguel has! Enjoying the story, full of unexpected developments. Great snippet!
Thanks, Veronica. You’re not the first to mention Miguel’s moves. I’ll do my best to give a teaser next week;).
I absolutely adored this line “His lips were firm but soft. Where she had expected coercion she got seduction.” It knocked me out. Great stuff!
Thank you, Catherine;).
Okay, I am fanning myself after this line “Where she had expected coercion she got seduction.” – talk about formidable! Great snippet.
Congrats on the release.
Thank you, Chelle. I am glad the line is resonating with readers!
Jayden sounds so very yum. Love the snippet…
Oh, he is…;).
