Weekend is finally here, hope you’ve all got a fun one lined up! I’m thrilled to be joining in the My Sexy Saturday blog hop. The theme this week is My Sexy Holidays – damn, I guess we’re going to have to admit they are creeping up fast! Still, one of the bright sides is lots of fun holiday stories – and I thought I’d share a wee snippet from my upcoming one. Hope you enjoy 🙂
“I said, I’m really sorry but I can’t seem to figure out the shower. Could you possibly show me?”
“Erm, yeah, course, no worries.” God, she sounded like a mumbling idiot. Her brain seemed to have turned to mush.
She followed him back to the tiny bathroom and managed to talk him through the shower controls without gaping too much. Really, it wasn’t fair for one guy to be that damn hot. When she leaned across to switch on the dial, she ended up losing her balance, one hand going out to catch herself and landing up on the expanse of golden skin on his chest. He was warm, so warm, and the skin beneath her fingers felt satin smooth over the rock hard muscles. Holly felt herself freeze, her eyes shooting up to meet his, seeing the blue darken and heat.
“Sorry,” she squeaked, but she couldn’t seem to make her hand move.
His own hand reached out, running down her cheek before gently tucking a stray strand of hair behind her ear. Holly held her breath, a trail of heat left in the wake of his touch. She wanted him to touch her more, to run her hands over all that golden skin, to follow that trail of hair down to…
He took a step back, her hand falling away, and Holly’s face burned. What the fuck was she thinking? There was no way he would want someone like her. Whirling on her heel she fled the suddenly claustrophobic bathroom, shutting the door behind her. Idiot!
Jeremiah cursed under his breath. What the hell? He had never been affected by a human before, yet his body was rock hard and he actually ached with the effort it had required not to reach out and drag her to him. To cover her lush lips, to shape every inch of those delectable curves, to bury himself deep inside her. Fuck, what was he thinking? His past transgressions were nothing compared to the trouble he would be in for sleeping with a human, especially one he’d been sent to judge. He turned on the water and fiddled with the temperature dial she’d shown him until it felt like there should be ice particles in the spray. Then he stood under it until he was chilled to the bone and his body finally decided to behave itself. Nothing was going to happen with Holly.
He frowned, there was a catch somewhere, he just had to find it. These days no humans were kind and sweet for the sake of it, there was always an ulterior motive. He would find it, and then he would be done with her.
Resolved, he turned off the water, quickly dried himself off and headed to the large, soft, freshly-made bed she’d provided for him. Yup, there had to be a catch somewhere.
