Flirty Friday - Cutest Couple

Welcome to Flirty Friday! This new addition to our monthly rotation will bring you a fun picture and an excerpt to go with it.

Kate Davies will go first, with an excerpt from her work-in-progress Cutest Couple. The hero is a soldier returning to his hometown for his ten year high school reunion, which is why the picture fits so well! Hope you enjoy.

It was supposed to be just a little kiss. A brush of lips, a gentle pressure before lifting away. Nothing sexual or passionate about it.

But his mouth touched hers and all his good intentions disappeared.

He tugged her closer, wrapping his free arm around her back, and teased her mouth open with his tongue. She didn’t respond, not at first, but right as he was about to pull away, she whimpered softly and kissed him back.

It had been ten years since he’d tasted her, ten years during which he should have forgotten her mouth, her tongue, her white teeth nipping at his lower lip. It was an intoxicating mix of the familiar and the new, and he delved in again, wanting more, wanting it all.

Her hands, caught between their bodies, clenched the fabric of his shirt as she held on. Their feet were tangled together, the two of them caught up in an embrace that had been ten years waiting.

Cutest Couple, coming from Carina Press on April 29!
