Happy Valentine’s Day, everybody.
I am halfway through writing my first paranormal romance novel and in the best spirit I’ve been in a long time. Changing my method, I have outlined the whole story, down to writing what went in every chapter. My productivity has increased tenfold and I have had days where I reached 5k words without having a brain stroke. Soon, I’ll be starting working on the cover and the blurb.
In other news, Marie’s Journey has gathered two 5 stars reviews from two readers who are loyal to The Ginecean Chronicles.
Linda of the Night’s free promo is still on, and several people told me they enjoyed the short read.
Now, for this romantic day, I’ve chosen a small excerpt from The Last Centurion:
“Did I do something wrong, little thing?” He brushed her eyes with his lips, his hands caressing her body in long soothing caresses.
She lowered her head to his chest, too overwhelmed to find the words to answer him.
“Diana?” He raised her chin with a finger, then left a chaste peck on her closed lips. “Are you okay?”
She nodded and he lowered his head to kiss her again. When he gently pushed at her lips to coax them open, a rush of pleasure made her lightheaded, and she anchored herself to him, grabbing his arms circling her.
He misunderstood her gesture and leaned his upper body away from her. “May I kiss you?”
Diana saw the intensity in his stare, and heard the pleading tone in his voice. She knew he thought he would perish if she denied him that kiss and so she had to tell him her secret. “It was my first kiss.”
It took a moment for him to react to her statement, but his eyes became liquid.
She had to lower hers. “I’ve never been kissed before.”
Without letting go of her, Marcus fell on his knees and pressed his face against her belly, his strong back shaking, his arms tightening around her waist. She passed her fingers through his hair and let her tears flow, then kneeled before him and laid her forehead against his. “Kiss me as you’ve never kissed a woman before.”
