Sexy Snippets are seven sentences, taken from a work in progress, or published book, brought to you every Sunday courtesy of the Sexy Snippets Blog. I’m joining in for the first time and have chosen a snippet from my new release, Caelan’s Captive. It’s taken from the beginning of the story when Lahna is washed ashore on Caelan’s island after having stolen a boat to escape a tyrannical king :
The girl moaned again as he lifted her from the boat and into his arms. Her head dropped back, revealing the delicate arch of her throat. Her free arm dropped away to her side, revealing the strips of clothing barely covering her.
Not a girl, he realized without breaking stride as he made his way up the beach – a woman, most definitely a woman.
Striding up the beach toward camp, he felt his cock jerk in reaction to the plump, ripe breasts that spilled from beneath the rags. Her nipples were dusky and dark, and his mouth went dry as a sharp desire to taste those breasts filled him.
Dear Gods of the Universe, he had most definitely been without a woman for too long.
I hoped you enjoyed my teaser. Here’s a little more information about Caelan’s Captive:
Escaping the king’s harem, Lahna finds herself at the mercy of a warrior prince who holds her captive and makes no secret of his desire to have her. Lahna hasn’t fled from one tyrant only to become the captive of another, and she certainly has no intention of warming the bed of the fearsome prince…even if he does make her body burn and her senses reel.
Caelan suspects his voluptuous captive may have been sent to spy on him and discover his plans to liberate his land from the tyrannical rule of the king. But her arrival provides him with the perfect opportunity to set those plans in motion. First, that means making her his, and in doing so he might just satisfy the craving for her that heats his blood and fires his loins.
But can Caelan really trust her? And can Lahna trust him to keep her safe when it matters most?
