Welcome the next stop for the Sunset on Summer blog hop! I’m Stephanie Ryan and I’m excited to finally be able to participate in one of these things with a book that’s our and ready for readers to devour. For this hop we were asked to share a short excerpt of our books to tease readers with a bit of romance. At the end of the post you’ll find the list of the other fabulous authors participating this weekend. Take the time to stop in to each one and find new reads to take you into fall.
Here’s my teaser. It’s PG-13 with some steam!
Both kept their eyes locked with each other as they kicked off their shoes and stepped out of their jeans. She stood before him clad only in her bra and high cut matching panties and challenged him to make the first move. She shivered, not from the cold, but from the anticipation now rising to epic proportions. Her chest rose and fell with each breath, offering a hint of what was to come if he dared to take it.
He closed the gap between them in two strides and picked her up. Her arms draped around his neck as their tongues battled each other for control. He kicked open the door to his bedroom and then placed her on a pile of pillows. He stood up and moved just out of her reach. He opened the top drawer of the night stand and removed several condoms. He tossed them on the bed and smiled.
She whimpered and begged him to join her again. “Please. Don’t leave a girl hanging.”
“Wouldn’t dream of it.” He hooked the waistband of his jockeys with his thumbs and dropped them to the floor in a pool at his feet.
She gasped. She’d never seen anyone with a more perfect body—not one clear of imperfections, but ripped and scarred from what she assumed were injuries sustained in the line of duty. She recognized surgical scars on his chest, abs, and thighs. She reached for him and within seconds he covered her.
Skin on skin.
Her fingers traced over each scar as he unhooked her bra and tossed it to the floor. His tongue flicked over each of her nipples in rapid succession.
Her nipples hardened into tight balls of nerves. Desire and raw animalistic need surged through her with every stroke of his tongue, nip of his teeth, and puff of his breath over her tender flesh. She moaned and sunk her nails into his bulging biceps.
He licked, kissed and sucked his way down her body and back up again. He snagged her panties with his fingertips and slid the material over her hips, down her legs and off without breaking eye contact.
The move drove her over the top and her body quaked with anticipation of more, but that would have to wait until she had her fill of exploring the living canvas before her. “My turn.”
He smiled and stretched out next to her. He fisted her hair and guided her lips to his once more. Soft and inviting turned intense and demanding as his mouth possessed hers. His tongue darted and danced then followed her lead.
Intoxicated by his scent of worn leather and sandalwood, her mind grew fuzzy. Explosions of color eclipsed all other images as she surrendered to the moment. God, this man can kiss!
From the back of the book

The list of suspects is long but all leads point toward someone from Miranda’s past—one hell bent on destroying her future.
