This is your book! And here’s a little tease.
In this scene, Zephyr and Rina are enjoying a day at a secluded cove, and here we see one of Rina’s dilemmas: she has a secret issue with being kissed. That doesn’t stop them from enjoying themselves, however…
He ran for the water, and she wasn’t long after him. They swam and dove and splashed and every so often, his hands caught her just right, caressing her as fluidly as the water across her skin. He finally dragged her closer to shore where they could both stand, and pulled her in until her body was pressed against his. The feeling of her hot flesh to his in contrast to the cool water around them was igniting his senses. He ran his palm over her body, sliding across her wet breasts and then up to her neck to tangle in her hair.
Rina twined her arms around his neck to steady herself, and then she wrapped her legs around his waist. She simply could not get close enough to him. Her lips moved to his neck, licking and sucking just the way he did to her, and she could feel that he liked it every bit as much as she did.
His fingers were still entwined in her hair, and he pulled her head back so she could meet his gaze. The brightness in his eyes made her push against him that much harder, undulating with the waves, trying to capture him and join with him right there.
She realized what he was doing a split second too late.
He touched his lips to hers gently, his arms wrapping around her as his lips opened on hers, coaxing a response. Rina made a strangled sound in her throat, tearing her mouth away from his.
“That bad, was it?” he joked lightly.
Rina’s head hung down, and she shook it, refusing to answer him.
Zeph was having none of it. He slid a finger under her chin, pulling her face up. The tears tracking down her face told him he’d gone too far.
“I’m sorry, Rina. Damn.” He pulled her in close. “I thought maybe if I took it slowly…” He ran his hand up and down her back. “I’m sorry. I swore I wouldn’t do anything you didn’t want me to.”
Rina shook her head. “Don’t be sorry. It was a wonderful kiss.”
She pushed away from him and walked up onto the beach. She reached for the satchel and managed to sit gracefully in the hammock. Zeph sighed and followed her, lowering himself into the hammock and sitting next to her.
“Are you hungry?” Rina asked lightly, opening the satchel.
Zeph reached across, taking it from her hands and dropping it down onto the sand beneath them. “Food isn’t what I want right now.”
Rina’s eyes brightened. “I’ve always dreamed of having a romantic encounter on a beach, you know.”
“On the beach? Literally, on the beach?”
“Yes.” She bit her lip. “Can we do that?”
“We can…if you want to put up with sand getting in every orifice of your body. It’s not a pleasant experience.”
Rina glanced around. “Well, I don’t see a blanket. I suppose we could go further into the jungle.”
“Or we could stay right here.” Zeph stood up, and then swung one leg over until he was straddling the hammock. “It has to be done very carefully…”
