Just turned in the last round of edits (hopefully) for Paula’s Craving. The story now pops closer to what I wanted from the original version I wrote almost 20 years ago. I think with the tightened blurb and tag line it’s going to be that much better a story for my readers both old and new. We’ve pushed some emotional boundaries, I’ve certainly pushed some writing boundaries with this story.
In the meantime, here’s the blurb and an excerpt:
After a wild night of passion with the man who captured her heart in high school, Paula wakes up to find Ryan gone from her bed and, seemingly, her life. Her heart knows the truth, they’re meant to be together, and she’ll use any means necessary to find him.
Ryan thrust himself into his work to escape the hell of his childhood, but when he ran into his high school crush, Paula, sparks flew. Yet doubt crept in and he fled, shaken as he realized his love for her.
Will Ryan give in to Paula’s craving or forever remain alone?
Paula wrapped her legs around Ryan’s hips, enjoying the friction of him pistoning inside her. His body blanketed hers. When he dipped his head down to claim her mouth, she tasted whiskey, smelled the heady, masculine scent mixed with the aroma of their love making.
Trailing kisses down her chin, Ryan nibbled over her flesh, making each nerve stand and beg for his attention.
She tightened her thighs, gripped his broad shoulders and let him fill her to the brim repeatedly while he caressed a breast.
He pinched and drew a nipple into his mouth, forcing a moan from her.
She arched upward, loving the slick action of his lips and the flick of his tongue over her nipple.
He caressed her hips, glided in and out, rocking against her so he hit her clit just the right way.
Tightness swelled in her belly; every bit of her burned for him. She tangled fingers in his long blond hair and tried to bring his mouth to hers.
He murmured something against her then licked a trail of heat up her chest, her collarbone before finally stopping at her ear.
“Baby, I’m so glad.” Her chest heaved with each word. “Finally!”
Ryan stopped mid thrust, stiffened against her and jerked his head up.
“What?” She opened her eyes and met his gaze, found the fierceness and some other emotion in the depths of his blue irises.
The mask returned to his face and Ryan started moving rhythmically.
Paula’s breath hitched and she dug her nails into his arms. Moving her hands jerkily down his arms, until she reached his waist, she clenched onto him, urging him to thrust harder.
“So close.” She threw her head back. “So close. Come with me, Ryan. Come with me!”
He took advantage of her open mouth and captured her lips, thrusting his tongue at the same speed as his cock.
Every movement seemed to be for her. Hell, even after all this time apart, she swore they fit together perfectly.
She clawed at him, urging him toward release.
He impaled her once more, sending her over the edge.
Paula stiffened, moaning his name while caressing Ryan’s large frame. “Come, baby!”
