WEEKEND WRITING WARRIORS #5

Once again I'm sharing from my WIP ~ Man of Her Dreams (Book One ~ Welcome to Ravenwood Series). Thought I'd share a first kiss scene.  Hope you like.

He invaded her space, closed the distance between than and lifting his hand, took her chin in his fingers. "Trouble", was the only word she heard before his mouth claimed hers. The kiss rocketed through her body all the way down to her toes.
She curled her fingers into his shirt, intending to push him away, but somehow they spread open and moved up toward his shoulders. He pulled her close and changed the angle of his mouth, deepening the kiss. His fingers tangled themselves in her hair and she heard a faint moan.
When had she ever moaned while being kissed?
Never, but then she'd never been kissed like this before. Slowly he pulled back and touched his forehead to hers while they both caught their breath.
"I've wanted to do that for days," he said, his voice as gravelly as a dirt road.
If you would like to read more from Man of Her Dreams, I've entered Harlequin's So You Think You Can Write (#SYTYCW15) contest on Wattpad. Please remember to vote if you like my story.

  1. Nice kiss. I'm being picky, but as someone who live half his life on the other side of the boondocks, there's a big difference between a dirt road and a gravel road. The former is impassible in heavy rain, while the latter is usable (barely). But that's a quibble. ;-)

    1. Hah - good point, but to repeat the word gravel would have been redundant. And I know what you mean, I grew up in rural Saskatchewan (Canadian prairie province) and most directions to anywhere went like this:
      "And then you turn off the dirt road..."

  2. Passionate moment indeed! Best wishes on the contest :) As a Moderator, I need to ask you to put a live link back to the main WeWriWa page. The link you have seems to go to the Wattpad location instead. Thanks!

    1. You're right - I'd pasted the wrong link. Has been fixed... I finally learned to count, but now I'm sending people all over the place.
      I'm a Work in Progress.....
