Gabriel’s Redemption Excerpt

As promised this book is on Loose Id’s schedule for early May. Some of you might remember Gabriel from Santa Baby. That book is one of my best-sellers and I was really intrigued by Gabriel’s irreverent personality. I thought it would be fun to put him in a really bizarre situation and see how he handles it. I really like this scene, though I struggled with it like damn and whoa. Let me know what you think.

Gabriel came out of the stupor slowly; the veils of unconsciousness peeling away like the layers of an onion. Awareness came as his senses absorbed the fact that he was curved around Ryannon spoon-fashion, his front to her back. Her scent filled his nostrils, the warmth of her skin amplifying the natural womanly smell of her in a way he’d never experienced before. Her body fit perfectly with his, the top of her head tucked under his chin. He rubbed his cheek against hers, the silkiness of her skin left him craving more of the delicious contact. Inhaling deeply he gorged himself on the deliciousness that was pure Ryannon. So soothing, he could lie there holding her all day. Then she shifted against him, her round bottom cuddling his morning erection in a way that made his eyes cross. She sighed in her sleep pressing closer against him and Gabriel groaned out loud. It seemed like he’d wanted her forever. The timing couldn’t be worse and he knew he should get out of this bed immediately. Well at least he could do the decent thing and move his hips away from hers before he came all over her ass. Even he knew that would be crass and probably unforgivable. But when he tried she shifted again, as though wanting the contact even in her sleep. He pressed back, grinding his cock against her soft flesh. He did it again, loving the feel of her around him.

Okay, so he wasn’t going anywhere anytime soon. He slid his cheek against hers again. God, it felt so good. There was no way in hell he’d be able to stop now. He had to have her. He slowly turned her in his arms until she faced him, then leaned down and took her mouth under his. He paused to look at her. With her hair braided for bed, he could see the delicate lines of her face, the baby soft skin that was practically addictive. He felt her startle awake. She stared at him for a long moment obviously surprised to find herself in his embrace. He thought for a moment she was going to pull away. Oh God no. Even so, he leaned down to kiss her again, then she was there, her tongue embracing his, the silky slide of her flesh against his made his erection even harder and he ground against her frantically. He couldn’t think of anything but getting inside her before he exploded, but that thought instantly chilled his arousal. He’d been wanting this woman forever. Okay, a few weeks, but still, no way in hell was he going to rush this. He’d never felt this way about a woman in his life and he intended to savor every second of it.

  1. In your words, that reading was like “damn and whoa”. I’m pulling out my credit card NOW to buy Santa Baby. Can’t wait until the sequel is available.
