On the Twelfth Day of Pre-Release the author gave to me…
The final build-up to the main event!
Oooo…it’s almost here! Tomorrow is release day for Jaguar inthe Sun and I’m so excited I can hardly stand it… J
During my Twelve Days of Pre-Release tour I’ve talked about so many aspects of this book and I was a little stumped for what I should do for this last post. Then I thought, hey, the tour was the foreplay, tomorrow is the Big Event, so this post should be that final little extra something that happens just before the release hits. Yep. Pun intended.
So here’s a little look at what happens when the heroine Cassandra and the hero Xbal are finally alone:
He got the tight sleeves partway down and paused, his gaze slipping down to devour her body just as effectively as his lips had consumed her mouth. The tightening of his fingers on her upper arms, the flare of desire in his eyes and his low moan of appreciation made her shiver with anticipation. It would be easy to pull the sleeves the rest of the way off herself but she stayed where she was, arms trapped slightly behind her body, basking in the heat of Xbal’s perusal. Passivity wasn’t her usual style. She liked being an active participant during sex and still wanted, oh so badly, to experience the feel of his body against hers. Yet here, now, it felt right to let him take the lead, to lie back against the door with her back slightly arched, breasts thrust out, offering herself up for his delectation.
Xbal took a deep breath, his nostrils flaring slightly as he did.
“Gorgeous,” he growled. His gaze still tracked along her body, flicking over her legs and torso, bringing the sparks of arousal beneath her skin to full burn. Cassie couldn’t remember ever feeling as beautiful—or as wanted—as she did in that moment. Couldn’t recall ever craving a man as much as she craved Xbal.
“Are you just going to look?”
Try as she might to make the words amused and inviting, they came out rushed and breathy—far needier than she intended.
Releasing her arms, Xbal flicked open the clasp at the front of her bra, holding on to the edges of the cups to slowly let them part. The spidersilk got caught on her nipples, the soft brush and minute drag making her gasp, and he left it clinging there. His eyelids lifted, and she found herself once more held captive by the dark enticement of his gaze.
“No.” Stark need and blatant intent made the word scrape across her consciousness, sending a shock of fire along her spine. “Now I make you mine.”
Umm… *fans self* Xbal is a sexy beast, and Cassie is a woman after my own heart, strong, determined and, once she makes up her mind, almost unstoppable.
Tomorrow I’ll be celebrating release day over at CristalRyder’s blog, and I hope you’ll stop by for a visit! *does a little jig* I love release day!
Cassandra Solinar has a bucket list and jaguar god Xbal Montegro is on it. About to undergo an essential rite she won’t survive, she wants to wring every ounce of pleasure out of the time left. Including discovering if Xbal’s sex magic technique is as good as rumored.
It’s no hardship for Xbal to accept Cassandra’s invitation for one erotic encounter, but far more difficult to let her go once he gets a taste of the explosive passion between them. Now he’s determined to hold on to her, no matter what.
Cassie can’t tell Xbal the truth about what she’s about to do. It’s illegal, but without her death the entire world will perish. It’s a job she’s been preparing for from birth, but the loss will be greater now. For in Xbal she finds a soul-deep connection she doesn’t want to lose, and the one thing she made a point of not putting on her bucket list—love.
