Nice Way To Start The Day Off

"He swapped the fistful of my shirt for one in my hair, and ground his mouth against mine.
I exploded.
I shoved at him, and clawed him closer. He shoved me back , and yanked me tighter to his body. I pulled his hair. He pulled mine. He didn't fight fair. Actually, he fought exactly fair. He didn't extend courtesies, not a single one.
I bit his lip. He tripped me and pushed me down to the stone floor of the cavern. I punched him. He straddled me.
I ripped his shirt down the front, left it hanging in tatters from his shoulders.
"I liked that shirt," he snarled. He rose over me, a dark demon, glistening in the torchlight, dripping sweat and blood, his torso covered with tattoos that disappeared beneath his waistband.
He grabbed the hem of my shirt, tore it straight up to my neck, and inhaled sharply.
I punched him. If he punched me back, I was past feeling it. His mouth was on mine again, the hot silk of his tongue, the sharp, deliberate abrasion of his teeth, the exchange of breath and the small, desperate sounds of need. A tsunami of lust - no doubt amplified by the Fae in my blood - crashed into me, knocking me from my feet, and dragging me out to a dangerous sea. There was no lifeboat here in these deep, killing waters, not even a lighthouse, marking the way back to shore with its soft amber promise. There was only the storm of Barrons and the one I seemed to be, and if there were dark shapes moving in the waters beneath my feet that I should possibly take a good hard look at and possibly reconsider trying to swim here, I didn't care.
He fitted himself to me and began a driving, erotic, rhythmic bump and grind..."

Marq said...

Aargh you are killing me! Now I want to re-read the entire series from start to finish!

Derna said...

You cannot imagine how mad I was when that scene ended...I swore and cursed in three different languages!

Krista West said...

Derna- You crack me up, but yes I swore too. I love that I was interested in the series though KMM strung us along for 4.5 books. And NO, I am not counting the beginning of Dreamfever.

Derna said...

Exactly, Krista. I don't count the the Dreamfever bit, Mac wasn't all there for most of it. And when you consider I started reading the series in 2007 ....had to wait almost a year for each book to be released...mad doesn't begin to describe it!
