It’s Saturday – which means time for the My Sexy Saturday blog hop! Hope everyone had a fun day yesterday, no matter what you got up to 🙂 It may not be a huge surprise that my excerpt this week is from the My Bloody Valentine anthology, which was released yesterday. I have two stories in it, and this is from ‘Siren’s Call’. My hero, Ciaran, is perhaps not your typical leading man – he’s insecure, inexperienced and has no luck with women. When he meets a mysterious woman on the beach in moonlight – his luck maybe about to change. However these stories are all dark romance, and things are not always what they seem 🙂
He meandered slowly, hands in his pockets. This would be a romantic situation if he only had someone to share it with. He scuffed his feet through the sandy pebbles. Yeah, right. His friends were always laughing at his bad luck with women, and that was if he even got up the courage to talk to them in the first place. Was it really his fault that he preferred books to sports, that he couldn’t lift weights to save his life—and he’d probably be just as skinny if he did?
Lost in his self-pity, at first he wasn’t sure what the shape on the rock was. When he actually made it out, he was convinced he must be seeing things. He slowly moved closer, mouth gaping in disbelief. Sitting on the rock, bathed in the moonlight, was the most beautiful woman he had ever seen in his life. Her skin glowed pure white in the moonlight; her hair streamed down her back and over her breasts. She was slowly running a comb through it, and his eyes became glued to the motion. At the moment it lifted at the front, he caught a glimpse of perfectly formed alabaster breasts. When he managed to drag his eyes up to her face it was a vision, delicate and heart-shaped, with huge eyes and full, pouting lips that pursed as she hummed a haunting melody.
He stepped forward, half-convinced that he was still in his bed, asleep. At any moment now he was going to wake up, probably after embarrassing himself like he had as a teenager. Instead, he saw her eyes widen in shock, the comb stilling in her long tresses as she looked at him with fear. For a moment, she seemed frozen before turning as though to run.
“Wait,” he cried out. “I won’t hurt you, please don’t go!”
The woman turned, her huge eyes lit with curiosity.
“I’m Ciaran,” he told her. “What’s your name?”
The woman rose gracefully from the rocks, and he gulped as he realized she was completely naked. She glided towards him and he tried to subtly adjust his pants as his body hardened uncomfortably.
