It’s time for Snippet Sunday. February is gone as of tomorrow and that’s kinda quick considering how long 2020 was as a year. I can’t believe it’s already March.
I’m showcasing an older book (came out in 2017) as I’m working on the sequel that should be out in June. It’s part of an unusual anthology that I can’t spill on just yet, but my tale will be a sequel to WILDFIRE’S HEART, Book 1 in the Elemental Hearts series. We’re in Raihana’s POV and she’s just finished eating the dinner she promised Saif. He has some innuendos to get her in the mood.
“Oh, there are many different ways.” He pushed his plate aside and grasped her hand, his work-roughened fingers playing over her skin. “Sometimes we run with all our gear on.” He stroked her wrist as he met her gaze, his eyes full of passion. “Sometimes we chop wood. Sometimes we run hoses up the tower.” His smile turned sultry. “I’m a hose man, myself.”
Despite his description of typical firefighter training, she didn’t believe he meant the water hoses in this instance.
“Are you? Do you have a big one? Or is it more long?”
His grin widened. “Are you finished with your meal? I’m happy to show you my hose if you’re interested, but I’d rather not do it before we’ve finished eating. I suspect you’ll need your strength.”
“Will I? Why is that?” She met his sultry look with one of her own.
“Because if I show you the secrets to my training, you might not be able to walk afterwards.”
The eroticism of his words and the images flashing in her mind sent cream straight to her pussy and she squirmed with delicious arousal.
His eyes flared with his own arousal and she lost her appetite for food. “Are you sure, Raihana? Because I like to be thorough.”
“Oh, glory, yes.”
She rose and took both their plates to the kitchen while Saif brought the glasses. But instead of walking around her, he hemmed her in against the sink and kissed the back of her neck after he set the glasses down. Saif slid his hands under her hair and pulled back the collar of her shirt, kissing all the skin he could reach. Raihana closed her eyes and let the delicious pleasure push her troubles away.
“Come, show me your bedroom because it’s time to love you.”
And let the good times roll. 😉 There are several great authors on the Weekend Writer Warriors list, the Snippet Sunday Facebook group, and the Rainbow Snippets Facebook group. A few of my favorites are, P.T. Wyant, Karen Michelle Nutt, Veronica Scott, Jessica Subject, Kathy Griffith Karysa Faire, and Iris Blobel.
Here’s the blurb for WILDFIRE’S HEART:
When you wish upon a wildfire…
Hot Shot Saif al Nar is a natural when it comes to fighting fires. As an Ifrit—a fire djinn—there’s no one better. But he doesn’t anticipate the local residents being suspicious and afraid of his ethnicity when his crew comes into town from the fire line for some R&R. Add some unexpected backup in the form of a lovely djinn and Saif is ready to set the town on fire.
A djinn might get burned…
Raihana Nejem retired from being a genie in a lamp centuries ago and now works for the U.S. Forest Service. Fires are devastating her field area, but the sexy firefighter djinn might just be more dangerous. Her people believe Ifrits to be evil demons and Raihana can’t be sure Saif isn’t responsible for the arson fires cropping up in town.
Or they could set the night on fire…
Is Saif behind the arson or is something darker and more dangerous going on? With hearts and lives on the line, Raihana must decide if she can stand the heat that comes with loving a man like Saif.
