Rites of Spring Blog Hop!

Your first kiss….do you remember what it was like? The excitement? The thrill? Who it was with and how old you were?

For me it was exciting and awkward because it was the first kiss for both of us. He was a male friend and we decided to try each other out to see what all the fuss was about. It was a little lacking, but I at least didn’t give it up. I kept kissing and it got better. A lot better. And a lot more exciting when I kissed someone I really liked.

For my heroine, Sameya, in Taboo Kisses, she has a lot of firsts. She’s a siren and sirens cannot experience sexual pleasure or arousal unless it’s with their mate. She’s unprepared for all her firsts, and especially the reality that she’s mated not to just a vampyr, but a tiger-shifter, too.

Her first kiss with Maximus—her vampyr mate—is epic and she’s mystified by the riot of emotions and her body’s reaction. I wish my first kiss had been amazing like Sameya’s was. Here’s her first kiss…

He chuckled, and her body reacted with a quiver down her spine to center between her thighs. Again!

Empress’ delights, she disliked the jumbled way he made her feel. Confused one moment and aroused the next. 
“What is your name?” 
“Call me mate.” 
Her breathing died, then escalated. She forced a lame-ass sounding laugh past her lips. “Don’t get cocky. I’m not into leeches.” 
“Don’t disqualify me from the running.” He sidled closer, aligning his body against hers once more, but maintaining space with his palms on the mausoleum on either side of her head. “Not when Gabriel and I haven’t had the gratification of making you come…yet.” 
She gasped, her eyes rounding at his foregone conclusion. “Better men than you have tried.” 
“None of them were your mates.” 
“Wait! Mates? As in plural?” She flattened her hands against his chest to push him away, but forgot to add pressure. The hard contours of his body fascinated her more than was practical. “That’s…insane.” But gods the idea fascinated her. “Sirens don’t partner outside our race and we certainly don’t have more than one partner.” 
Sameya didn’t realize she spoke the thought aloud until the vampyr thrust both his hands into her hair. After he had her anchored into position, he shifted closer, widening his stride to fit her pelvis between his legs. His hard-on nestled against her abdomen as he tilted her head back by her hair.

“No more insane than a vampyr mating a shifter.” His mouth landed on hers. He nibbled on her bottom lip, licked the corners and crease. Distracted by the exhilarating sensations, she was unprepared to counteract his move when he placed the pad of his thumb against her chin and tugged, parting her lips for his tongue to thrust inside.

Sameya squealed her surprise at the wet contact of his abrasive tongue. His fangs grazed her bottom flesh, and her eyelids snapped upward. He watched her, eyes glowing green. He pulled her tighter against his hard frame as his hand moved down her neck, over a breast, and across her belly to land on the front of her thigh. The fingers in her hair shifted, twisting her head to an angle that deepened the kiss.

I should stop him now before it get out of 
The forays into her mouth, thrust inside, withdraw, and repeating the movement, were subtle hints of sex. He fucked her mouth with a skill she’d never known possible. She grew so hot every pore in her body should’ve melted, or at the very least ignited.

Sameya squirmed against him. Needing more of something she couldn’t name. With his tongue in her mouth, thinking straight became impossible. 
His hand shifted from her thigh to dive between her legs. She jerked when he rubbed his thumb against her clit. Hard enough she could feel it through her Basilisk skin pants.

Empress save me that feels good. He broke the kiss and lifted his head; his gaze intense as he rubbed her where few had ever touched her. Desire burst in her belly and raced along her flesh.

The vampyr released her suddenly, taking several steps away, his fists opening and closing as he began to pace a small path in front of her.

Sameya slid down the tombstone, panting like she’d raced someone, but that made no sense because running didn’t tire her. But…what had his hand between her legs been creating? The elusive orgasm? She hoped not because that meant this intimidating vampyr would be her mate.

Taboo Kisses…where desires and inhibitions collide.

Dispatched to the mortal realm from Atlantis to seek the source of a brewing rebellion, Sameya is thrown for a tailspin when she discovers her fated mates. As a siren her songs entice mankind and immortals alike to their death. She’s stunned to be seduced by a taboo union with a tiger-shifter and vampyr. Mating the pair could complicate everything and threaten her freedom. Fueled by her duty to Atlantis, Sameya rejects fate’s wisdom and refutes her attraction to the men.

Taboo Kisses…when the forbidden becomes irresistible.

Gabriel and Maximus have been searching for their mate for centuries. Neither expected the siren they were hired to find would deliver more than a lucrative payday. Frustrated by Sameya’s aversion to their mating, the men anticipate an empty future if she refuses to complete their union. In a rash move Maximus seizes Sameya and holds her captive.

Taboo Kisses…when the siren is serenaded with temptation.

Trapped and at their mercy, Sameya is bombarded with pleasure. Can her mates convince her to take a gamble on their taboo union? With danger lurking in the shadows, will the choice be taken from her?

I wish my kiss was romantic, but it was awkward and very, very wet. Too young, too soon to appreciate the delights of a kiss I'm afraid.

I adore Spring simply because life is warming up after the cold spell. And who doesn't love daffodils, bunnies and chicks - right! :)

Thanks for the giveaways :)

My first kiss was *sigh* perfect. It was short and sweet. I don't know how to explain it, it sounds cheesy but it felt like a promise. It wasn't my a boyfriend, but my best friend. We were at our first rock concert and I don't even know how it happened. All I remember is us holding hands after while listening to the music. I was 15.We're not together, but til this day, he's my best friend. :)


Favorite thing about spring? Flowers blooming! I'm not saying I have a green thumb or anything, but I'm pretty decent. It fill me with a sense of accomplishment whenever I see my rose bushes bloom, or the other flowers I've planted. Also, bragging rights! lol.

My first kiss, at camp, sitting around the campfire with the cutest boy I had ever encountered.
Love spring, all the flowers blooming, everything greening up.

My first kiss happened when I was in 10th grade. It was after my Sophomore Semi-Formal in the back of a limousine. When I got home I told my mother that he stuck his tongue in my mouth, which I thought it was gross, and she turned to me and said "Don't worry about it, you'll get used to it". At first I was like ewwww but shortly thereafter I realized what she meant (*sly smirk*)

My favorite thing about spring is being able to sit out side reading and watching my kids playing.

My first kiss happened when I was a freshman. He was my first serious boyfriend and the sweetest guy in the world. Broke my heart into a million pieces when he moved away but alas, I moved on and am now happily married to the only man on the planet who could possibly put up with me for the rest of my life =).
My favorite part of spring is the gardening I get to do.

I was a latchkey kid--wore my key on a purple shoelace around my neck. When I was about 9 or 10, Eddie Madden grabbed my shoelace and pulled me in for a wet, sloppy kiss. It was not the kind of kiss you read about in romance novels! LOL.

Great tease.

I don't remember my first kiss, guess it wasn't that great. But I do remember my first date with my hubby. 22 years and still going strong.

Thanks for being in blog hop.
