#WIPItUp … He might have his poker face on, but his cock wasn’t playing that game…

WIPimage12This is WIPItUp, the blog hop where authors share excerpts from their works in progress. And please feel free to comment – we authors love feedback.

This week I’m sharing a teaser from my current WIP, back from the beta readers and ready for final edits. I’m hoping to get it finished and to my publisher this week. The working title is Saving Grace. It’s a contemporary erotic romance with a twist of mystery to it, and set in the UK.

Oh, and here’s picture of my inspiration for the hero, Ben…

Check out this short snippet:

“Now you can remove your clothes.”

“Oh.”

He dropped a kiss on her forehead, then strolled to the double bed in the centre of the room. He settled himself against the pillows, his feet dangling off the side so as not to bring his shoes onto Gina’s spotless bedding.

“Are you going to watch?”

“I am, certainly. I hope you won’t keep me waiting.”

“Everything? You want me to take everything off?” Perhaps he meant just down to her underwear. Lily blessed the instinct which made her choose a matching purple lace bra and panties set for this meeting which was really a date and the prelude to what she was beginning to think might be her hottest sexual experience ever.

“Everything. Completely naked. I want to look at you, see every inch of you.”

Oh. God.

Lily stood, immobile, trying desperately to collect her scattered thoughts. Where to start?

“Is any part of my instruction unclear?”

“No. Sorry, it’s just…”

“Then do it. Now.”

Did she detect the slightest hardening of his tone, a sliver of cold steel in among the velvet softness? A thread of authority that demanded obedience? Whatever – just the hint of it was enough to spur Lily into action.

She started with her glasses, offering up silent thanks that her eyesight wasn’t so bad she couldn’t manage without them. It would be a pity to miss the fine detail of what promised to be a most interesting end to the evening. Next, she pulled the clingy purple top over her head and tossed it onto the chair a few feet away from where she stood. Her breasts were smaller than she might like, but shown to their best advantage this evening, cradled within the lavender coloured and artfully crafted silk and lace, lifted and held up for display. She looked good, she knew it.

Ben Tyler’s thoughts were indiscernible. The man gave nothing away as he watched, his expression alert, interested without a shadow of doubt, but for now seemingly reserving judgement. Lily allowed her gaze to drift lower, and was reassured by the distinct bulge tenting his pants. He might have his poker face on, but his cock wasn’t playing that game.

I hope that was enough to whet your appetite.

  1. Oh man, Ashe. I’m sure this is really hard for Lily. Getting naked while your man just lays on your bed and watches you. It’s unnerving, but also very hot.
