I would love to share with you a Scene from my upcoming Paranormal Romance with Fantasy and steampunk elements, Homecoming. This Scene is not part of the entry, just something steamy to start the fest.

His gaze dropped to her mouth, and he trailed his thumb over her lower lip, transfixed. His mouth tugged faintly at the corners as it came crashing down on hers, rough like his voice and impatient and desperate. His tongue swept across her lips, seeking entrance, and she opened up to him, let him claim her. He showed her how much he’d missed her with his lips, telling her she was his with his fingers gliding along her jaw, then folding on her neck and pulling her close. So close no air passed between their bodies. He deepened the kiss, sliding his hands to her hips and pulling her flush to his body, his claws digging into her skin. The kiss, the way he held her, reminded her of the last kiss he’d bestowed on her before she left him. Passionate. Reverent. Tender. A kiss that said “You are all mine. Mine until the end of time.”

Her hands slid up to circle his neck and pulled him lower, wanting more, everything. Her fingers skated their way up to dig into his cropped hair and she moaned. Gods, she was powerless to him.

He groaned at her response, pinning her to the wall with his hips. “Sera,” he murmured against her lips, following the words with a nip of fangs on her lips. “My Sera.”

We look Forward to reading your Scenes! :)

  2. Yay!! I put my entry up :) Love this blogfest idea!

  3. Great scene- I like the claim and the name Sera.

  4. *fans self* If the rest of the fest continues like this, I'm not going to make it to the end! LOL Great stuff, Cecilia, that was super hot. I love 'claiming' kisses. :D

  5. Very steamy! Great scene. :D
    What a fun idea for a blogfest.

  6. I love this blogfest idea. Wish I could participate but I've just got too much on my plate this week. Have fun with it.

  7. Very steamy, going to love reading the entries for this blogfest! Great job! Off to hop around - then I guess it's a cold shower! :)

  8. She'd left him, but likely she'll never be able to again! Nice build up to the discovery of his character.

    Thanks for hosting this cool bloghop. I hadn't given you credit on my post. I'll be sure to do that once I'm able (using my phone app now!)

  9. Oh my! That was a hot and intense scene. I'm trying to squeeze in a little time this afternoon to check out posts, but since my son isn't napping, I have to wait for the majority of my reading to get done tonight.

  10. Wow! What a scene! Very intense and emotional.

    BTW, if you get a chance today, I'm hosting Yolanda's book giveaway over at my blog:
    Would love it if you could stop by.

  11. This is quite fun, I've read about four of these so far! Gonna try and get through them all tonight if I can!

    This was rather steamy, almost angry but very passionate at the same time :) I liked it!

  12. That was intense... I'm all breathless and flushed now!

  13. Love the name Sera! Excellent all-around.

  14. I think you did a great job with the kissing scene, Cecilia.I especially like how you intertwines physical feelings with emotion. :-)

  15. Wow that's the best one yet. Steamy, passionate, attention grabbing, hot...can you tell I think this is great.
