WIPItUp – with a little Moroccan Promise … and a Giveaway

WIPimage12[1]Hello Wipsters, Wippets and Wippees, welcome to my blog, and to the WIP It Up Wednesday blog hop where erotic authors share snippets from their WIPs (works in progress) or new releases.

First, a little announcement. This is the 500th blog post I’ve made on my blog, which I think calls for some sort of celebration. A Giveaway even. As I’ll be sharing a snippet from Chameleon, my soon to be released novel set in Morocco, that’s what I’ll give away. To be in with a chance of winning a free ebook copy of Chameleon, just sign up for my newsletter, and leave a comment here.

Now for the excerpt. Ethan has just treated Fleur to her first orgasm at his hands. What comes next?

“You’re tensing up again, honey. Why is that?”

Ethan’s question took her by surprise. How did he know what she was feeling, hoping for? Not hoping for?

“I’m not. I…”

“You think I’m going to drop my pants and fuck you now, and you’re not quite sure that’s what you want. Am I right?”

“I…” Speechless, Fleur had no response to that. He was right. He was spot on. And, incredibly, it seemed to be okay.

Ethan shifted, drew himself up to lie alongside her, leaning up on one elbow. He raked her naked form with his eyes, idly brushed her right nipple with the backs of his fingers. He glanced at the hard, pebbling nub then met her eyes.

“That’s not how this is going to be. You will be sure. I’ll make you sure, then I’ll fuck you. Not now, though. Now, this, was for you. Just you. Because you needed it. That’s all.”

“All?” Fleur did not understand. She was mystified. Surely a man, any man, would want his due? Apparently not Ethan Savage. He lay beside her, pulled her into his arms and simply held her. And it no longer mattered that she was naked and he still fully dressed.

Long minutes passed before Fleur spoke again. “What must you think of me? I do not usually do this.” She paused. “I never do this.”

He chuckled, nuzzled her hair. “What I think is that you don’t do it very often. Maybe you should.”

“I cannot believe I did this. It was not planned, I never intended…”

Now Ethan laughed. “Ah, but the best plans are the ones you don’t make. You just know the next step when you see it. You saw it, and you took it. Opportunism.”

“But I hardly know you. I only met you today. I cannot believe this has happened between us.”

“Well, I admit I wouldn’t have put money on it, either, the first time I set eyes on you on that donkey. I’m glad it did, though. You know, you’re even more beautiful when you come, the way your body stiffens and your breath stops for a few moments.”

Fleur considered this. “You were obviously paying close attention. I am mortified.”

Ethan dropped a kiss on the top of her head. “I was. Always do. And no, you’re not. You’re surprised, perhaps, maybe a little embarrassed. But nowhere near mortified. Get used to it, honey. I’m nowhere near finished with you yet.”

I hope you enjoyed this brief preview. If you want more you can get your hands on Chameleon now on early download from Totally Bound.

Here’s the blurb…

A chance meeting, two strangers whose paths cross—in the same place at the same time, yet a world apart.

When mining engineer Ethan Savage spots the cloaked, veiled woman riding a donkey in the Moroccan desert, he can be forgiven for thinking that in some respects nothing much has changed in two thousand years. She wouldn’t look out of place in Biblical times. They pass, nod, smile politely and go their separate ways, two strangers a world apart.

But when, moments later, she rescues him from his crashed car, the first words she utters make Ethan realise that appearances can be deceptive. His little Berber peasant is not what she seems.

Shifting effortlessly between her traditional roots in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains and her professional life as the Totally Five Star hotel doctor, Fleur is a human chameleon, able to adapt and blend into any environment. At first irritated then amused by the handsome stranger, Fleur knows the assumptions he’s made about her. As their paths cross once more at the luxurious hotel, she realises he, too, is not all he seems. This sexy Englishman holds the key to her most secret and sensual desires, dangerous yearnings she’s kept locked away for years. Now she has a choice to make.

Ethan is only in Marrakesh for a few days, then he’ll be gone and she’ll never see him again. No one will ever know, so surely it will do no harm? Can she pass up this opportunity? And once she’s trusted him with her body, experienced all he can offer, will she be able to return to her old life? Or will the sensual chameleon need to reinvent herself once again to fit into his world?
