Friday First Kiss #5 :: His Brother’s Wife by Lily Graison-Historical Western Romance

I have a brand new feature here on the blog, Friday First Kisses. If you’re anything like me, when I crack open a new book, I rush through the beginning, the budding relationship between the hero and heroine, and anticipate that spontaneous moment when they make their move. The First Kiss. The first turning point in every story. I’ll be sharing those moments here on the blog every Friday and I’ve invited a few other authors to share their character’s first kisses as well. It will be a love-fest on the blog every week so lets get started! This weeks Friday First Kiss is from my upcoming release, His Brother’s Wife, a full length, stand alone novel, in the Willow Creek Series. This scene drops us right in the middle of a heated argument between our hero and heroine, Rafe and Grace, that ends differently than either expected. “You can’t leave.”  Grace blinked her tears away and swallowed to dislodge the lump in her throat. “Why?”  “Because…” He stuttered, his mouth opening and closing several times. He looked as if he were about to say something then thought better of it before he shook his head. “You’ll break Jesse’s heart if you do.”  “As if … Continue reading

He tugged Annie tightly against him and fairly devoured her lips with his. Her heart raced wildly and she could scarcely breathe.   When her lips parted slightly, he teased her with his tongue, then thrust deep, exploring the sweet, seductive taste of her mouth. Her hesitant surprise dissolved first into a glowing pleasure and then, so quickly it stunned her, into something else altogether more urgent and hungry. A deep craving flared as she instinctively understood all his kiss was asking of her, all the desperation with which he was taking her.  Michael wanted comfort, absolution, warmth. He wanted life. He wanted everything she could give.  Annie wrapped her arms around his … Continue reading

When he stood and crossed the room to her, leaning close to her back, she sucked in a quiet breath. She hadn’t lied when she said a woman had needs. She did. She missed having a man in her bed and having Morgan so close to her sent shivers racing up her spine. He leaned in, trapping her body against the cabinet by placing both hands on either side of her. She could smell the soap on his skin and buried under what she knew was distinctly him, … Continue reading

She’d barely got her arms up around his shoulders when she felt someone brush against her back. … Continue reading
