Welcome to week 85th week of My Sexy Saturday The week’s theme is Their Sexy Talk and again, it was noted that this theme would mean different things for different authors. Don’t forget to visit on Monday for Monday’s Austria Scoop where I talk all about the happenings here in Vienna, Austria and Tuesday for My So-Called Writing Life where I talk about what it truly means to be a writer.
This week, I’m using a story from my backlist and I’ve chosen a couple who in the beginning were at odds with each other. The spark was there in spaded but Ardan just didn’t want to acknowledge it until the end of the book. But through it all, as a reader, I hope you can tell that they are working toward a tomorrow. The book is the second in my Santa’s Elves series, The Thing About Elves and it’s one of my all-time favorite stories that I’ve written. Here’s the setup:
It’s been two years since Angie’s friend, Tessa, got married to Jedrick and introduced her to his brother, Ardan. From the moment, she saw him she knew he was the man for her. There’s only one problem…he’s elf…an elf who swears human and elves don’t mix. But Angie has other plans in mind.
When Ardan asks her to his house after the delivery of Tessa’s and Jedrick’s twins, she jumps at the chance. Even though he keeps telling her nothing will happen, they have been doing this dance for a very long time. And when she teases him by caressing his body, Ardan knows he’s lost. But love and commitment are more than just hot sex. Ardan still doesn’t trust human women and Angie is determined to prove that she is the woman…the only woman…for him. She loves medicine, the North Pole and him more than anything else in the world.
When Ardan is summoned to help a hurt elf, he is unavailable and Angie goes in his stead to prove to him that she loves the community of elves as much as he does. But something goes terribly wrong and Ardan is left to care for a comatose and possibly dying Angie. Ardan realizing just how precious this woman is, vows to prove to her his love is fathomless.
No matter what the future holds.
This book is a novella and like I said, I loved writing it. When I finished the book, I had a Joan Wilder moment and actually cried from being so happy. Yes, it is that heartwarming and awesome. I hope you enjoy Angie’s story with my snippet this week of seven sexy paragraphs!
Ardan snorted. Resist, indeed. “Madam, I don’t know what you’re talking about.”
“Sure you do. You just don’t want to admit it, big boy. You want me.” She closed her eyes as if breathing in his scent just like he had done moments before when he had his back turned to her.
“And I want you.”
Slowly, she slid a finger up his leg and under his lab coat. If that hand or finger went an inch higher, she would know that he lied. Still, he tried to will his body to obey his commands. Human women were off limits. Angie’s hand continued its journey up his leg and he knew he was lost. How was he going to explain this?
She leaned back, looked up and chuckled. “What do we have here?”
Ardan almost felt physically sick. He hadn’t let a human woman touch him since college and here this one was practically in his pants. He cleared his throat. “I don’t know what you mean.”
“And you call yourself a doctor?” She stood on tiptoes and pulled him down to her. “Maybe I’ll have to teach you,” she whispered in his ear as her tongue snaked out and gently caressed the flesh.
