I think every author has her favorite scenes, and in this Six Sentence Sunday offering, I’m presenting a snippet from one of my all time favorites. It’s comes from Reckless in Moonlight, a contemporary erotic romance involving a 45-year-old heroine and a younger man. This is a “phone sex” scene, in which Dana is talking to her boss while Lon proceeds to make love to her.
“Are you still there?” Claire asked.
“It’s going to be…uh…fine.” Dana lolled her head to the side as Lon kissed her neck, the contrasting softness of his lips with the gentle abrasion of his jaw stirring pulses in her clit. She should push him away, deal with business, and then get back to business. Except…except…he’d turned her willpower and gray matter to mush.
“It’s going to be much better than fine.” Lon’s wicked breath filled the ear not pressed to the telephone.
Reckless in Moonlight Blurb:
Forty-five-year-old Dana Markus knows a full moon makes people act crazy. It’s why they call the power company with stories about aliens disrupting the earth’s climate. It probably explains why her ex-husband left her for a girl scarcely older than their college-age daughter. It definitely accounts for why she impulsively invited the neighbor’s hunk of a son over for a skinny-dip. And why 28-year-old Lon Corbin accepted.
Lon doesn’t think much of the mass of rock orbiting the earth, but he does think he’s the luckiest man alive when the sexy divorcee he’s admired from afar invites him into her pool. He knows she has reservations about their age difference, but he’s planning to show her in a very physical way how good they could be together if she’ll give him the chance.
But when their simmering private passion boils over into a public relationship, family pressures and schemes threaten to split the couple apart.
The moon brought them together — but can it save them?
