Welcome to the 97th week of My Sexy Saturday! This week’s theme is Our Sexy Best brought to you by the Tina Turner song Simply The Best.
Our theme this week has no genre, no rules except that the characters know their partner is better than all the rest. They may have had lovers before but nothing compares to the lover they are with right now. Our aim this week, is to show you those characters who really are are better than all the rest.
The rules of My Sexy Saturday are simple. The post must be 7 paragraphs or 7 sentences or 7 words only.
My own My Sexy Saturday excerpt this week comes from my newly released historical romance, A Kiss for a Highlander, which has already received some great reviews.
RT BOOK Reviews said “Readers will enjoy the deep characterization and the stormy passion of this romantic couple, and will look forward to the next book in the series.”
“Jane Godman has raised the bar with her, A Kiss for a Highlander; it is bursting at the seams with climatic scenes that keep the pages turning!” Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews
Touchingly emotional and riveting till’ the very last page, engulf yourself in the drama of two star crossed lovers fighting for love—and their lives! A Kiss for a Highlander is Diva Mom’s Pick of the Month for June for a hot and steamy summer romance!
A passion that burns away centuries of hate…
Stranded in the heart of England after Bonnie Prince Charlie’s hasty retreat, highlander Fraser Lachlan has sworn to stay by his injured friend’s side. But when a kindly English family takes Jack in to be cared for by the governess and healer at their Derbyshire estate, Fraser can only watch helplessly.
It’s just a matter of time before Jack is turned over to the Crown as a traitor, but Fraser’s attempt to rescue his friend is met with the blunt end of a candlestick.
Martha Wantage wears every reason she hates the Scots on her body—in the scars from a violent, fiery attack that killed her family. Now she has not only one unconscious Jacobite rebel at her mercy, but two. And she can’t resist cursing her enemy with the “kiss of hate”.
That kiss unleashes a storm of passion that rages quickly out of control. But with the legacy of Martha’s scars weighing heavy on her mind, and Fraser’s duty calling him to battle at Culloden, it may be too late to explore whether theirs is a desire born of hate…or love.
Warning: Contains a very sexy, masterful highlander and a demure, but defiant, governess who discovers the hard—very hard—way exactly what a Scotsman keeps under his kilt.
She didn’t answer and he moved closer. Keeping his eyes on hers in the semidarkness, he reached out and took the blanket from her shoulders. She probably should have protested. Then he undid the laces at the neck of her nightdress, and the moment for objections had passed. His big hands felt warm against the cool flesh of her upper arms as he tugged the cloth down, exposing her small, pointed breasts to his gaze. The scars that marred her shoulder and upper arm continued across the top of her left breast, almost to the centre of her chest, making the undamaged skin below appear even whiter and purer in contrast. She closed her eyes, but she could still feel his eyes on her. Slowly and softly, his hands moved across her scarred flesh, massaging and stroking. No-one else had ever touched her there—not since the nuns had treated her burns—and his caress made her shudder with a combination of shock and pleasure.
Then Fraser bent his head and very gently licked the tip of one pale pink nipple. The sensation was so outrageously delicious that Martha didn’t move. She couldn’t.
He lifted his head and smiled into her eyes as she opened them again. “Just look at you, Martha Wantage. You’re not all hard edges and sharp points as you’d have the world believe. You choose these ugly clothes to hide yourself beneath, but under them, you’re all soft and round. Will you let me do it again?” Her eyes felt huge on his as, very slowly, she nodded.
He placed his hand beneath her breast, lifting it to his mouth as he lowered his head again, this time taking the whole of her left nipple between his lips and sucking it. How was it possible for his tongue to feel so soft and yet to rasp against her flesh? Martha’s head fell back as she gave a moan of complete surrender. Adroitly, Fraser moved his hands behind her, supporting her with his palms flat against her shoulder blades to prevent her from falling backward.
He moved his lips up to the hollow of her neck. “Tell me to stop and I will.”
“What will you do if I say nothing?” Her voice sounded husky and quite unlike her own.
“I’ll keep going until I think you’re warm enough.” She remained silent, and he gave a soft laugh of understanding.
A Kiss for a Highlander is available from Amazon:
