Snippet Saturday – Threads of Desire & a pop up contest!

Happy Saturday! Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend. Today I thought I’d share a bit from my latest in my Crimson Romance Series THREADS OF DESIRE ,and bonus, have a quickie pop up contest!

Threads of Desire cover Final

Nick whirled around, ignoring the fact that Gabby was in the bath. Naked and in the bath. Thank goodness for bubbles. But too bad the majority had fizzed out. Gabby quickly jerked her hands up to cover her breasts, sloshing water over the edge of the old claw foot tub. Her eyes swept down to make sure the essentials were covered. “Jeez, Nick, do you have no shame?”

He raised a dark brow by way of answer to her question. Clearly he was unfazed by the fact that he was standing there semi-nude in just his boxer-briefs, and she didn’t think he really cared that he’d been caught peeing. “Why do you think I turned around? I wasn’t going to just let this moment go to waste.”

Gabby’s felt her face heat—along with other parts of her body that she’d prefer stayed cool, thank you very much. But no, with Nicholas Ross around, of course, she was heated. Screw it. She’d afford herself the opportunity to sweep him a slow up and down. Might as well look her fill and see how he liked it. Besides, there was no way she was cowering. This was her apartment, her damned bathroom.

Gabby raised her eyes slowly and there he was, standing before her, leaning casually against the vanity and, despite his rough night, having the nerve to still resemble some sort of mahogany Adonis. Nick looked ready for his photo shoot—or maybe an early morning sculpting session, since everything about him said classic perfection. From his strongly planted feet, to his muscled calves to his well-toned runner’s thighs, up those climb-’em-like-a-ladder abs to his freaking ridiculous pecs… Gabby let out a steamy breath and licked her lips.

She got to his face, his morning scruff only adding to his appeal, and Gabby had to clamp down on her suddenly out-of-control hormones. But then she noticed the quirk come to the corner of his full lips, and her eyes came up to sharply meet his. “What do you find so funny?”

“Nothing. It’s just the way you were looking at me. I suddenly felt like I should put out a tip jar or something.”

Gabby felt her nostrils flare. “Oh, don’t flatter yourself, Mr. Ross. You’re not all that. No need to get a swelled head.” She let her eyes go south and cocked her head. “Or anything else.”

  1. Love this excerpt! Hot, hot, hot! I don’t know where I’d like to read, but I do read in the car a lot, while waiting to pick someone up. Oh! And I also enjoy reading at Panera’s on the one day a week that I have an extra hour before work. It feels kind of luxurious to have a danish and just read. Frivolous, even!

  2. Great piece of writing, Kwana! Hmm, my favorite place to read is on my couch, sometimes with a cozy blanket around me (especially this winter). I never read in the tub, because I know the book will get wet. Best wishes for success with THREADS OF DESIRE!

    Having only a shower in my current home, I can’t read in the tub much as I’d like to. My favorite place to curl up with a book is in my recliner with a mug of chai close at hand. THREADS OF DESIRE sounds great … best wishes for every success!
