Texas Tangle

Copyright 2010 Leah Braemel

[H]e’d planned to seduce her slowly, to start off with opening a bottle of her favorite Australian Shiraz he’d stashed away a couple nights before. Then he’d kiss her. Touch her. Get her worked up. Together they could work their way to her bedroom. Slowly. Gently. Tenderly.

At least he’d made her come first. But in the front seat of his fuckin’ sedan like a horny teenager?

He groaned as she sucked him so deeply, the head of his cock bumped her throat. Instead of gagging the way he’d expected her to, he could feel her lips curling up, and she started humming. Oh, shit, yeah! When she slowly withdrew until only the head stayed between her lips, it was everything he could do not to push her head down and fuck her talented mouth like the barbarian he was.

As she pumped her mouth, her hips rose and fell to the same rhythm. He lifted her behind off the seat, encouraging her to kneel so he could slide his hand between her legs and cup her mound. With a moan she ground her clit against the heel of his hand while his fingers plunged into her pussy. Her juices covered his palm as her humming grew louder, more frantic, the vibrations sending an electrical jolt through his shaft and straight to the base of his spine.

Desperate, he pulled her off of him. Her eyes were glazed, her lips red and swollen as she looked at him in confusion. The scent of her arousal—musky and sweet at the same time—filled the car, inflaming his senses.

“Not here. Not like this. I want to be buried inside you when I come.” He removed the keys from the ignition and opened his door even as he was stuffing his dick back into his pants. Anxious to get her inside, he nearly jumped over the hood of the car to open her door before she could.

The warm, wet depths of her mouth, the strength of her tongue and the mind-blowing suction she used on his cock had Brett closing his eyes in a desperate attempt not to lose complete control. Christ, she was a goddess made for sucking his dick.

As soon as she’d cleared the car door, he slammed it shut, grabbed her hand and half dragged her to the house. She giggled that it took him three tries to stab the key into the lock, only to discover the door had been unlocked the entire time. What would it feel like to make her giggle while she had his dick in her mouth?

Heaven. Sheer fucking heaven.

Once they were inside, he threw the deadbolt and plastered her back against the front door. Without a care for her dress, he pulled the neckline down over her breasts, catching her bra with it. The fabric pulled taut, holding her breasts up like a trophy. Holy crap, her breasts were so pretty, the plump nipples jutting out, begging to be suckled. He captured one taut bud with his mouth, lashing it with his tongue, scraping both top and bottom with his teeth.

She pressed her breast deeper in his mouth as she sought his erection again. He captured her by the wrists and braceleted them with one hand above their heads, stopping her from touching him. If she did, he’d shoot off in his pants.

With his other hand, he freed himself, then trading her breast for her mouth, he hitched her skirt out of the way and positioned himself at her entrance. With a curse, he realized he’d forgotten one important step and had to release her hands while he fumbled in his back pocket for a condom. Once properly protected, he repositioned himself, driving her breath from her when he buried himself to the hilt with one thrust.

So fucking fantastic.

Her body was firm against his, speaking to the hard work she did in the stables and the hours of riding her horses. He rotated his hips, her channel so hot and tight, it about drove him insane.

A dark primitive side of him tried to claw its way out, wanting to pound into her, to spill his come deep inside her, to leave his scent all over her so any other man around would know she was his. He nipped at her shoulder, rasping his teeth over her smooth skin, half worrying he’d leave a mark, the other half hoping he would.

He tortured himself by pulling out of her in a long, slow glide, which proved to be an agonizing pleasure as her body enveloped him. Just as slowly he rocked back into her until the head of his cock nudged the hard flesh of her cervix. His body trembled, especially when he noted she took every inch of him deep within her without complaint.

He buried his head in the crook of her neck, inhaling the perfume she’d dabbed behind her ears, tasting the salt of her sweat. At some point he didn’t remember, she’d undone the buttons of his shirt, and her breasts rubbed against his chest, driving him crazy with lust.

“It’s gonna have to be fast, baby. I can’t do this slow.”

“So what are you waiting for?” She hooked one ankle around his waist and tilted her hips as he pounded into her. Her fingers dug into his shoulders as though she’d be launched through the door if she didn’t hold on to him. She made the softest little mewling sounds while her internal muscles clenched his dick.

The door banged against the frame each time he slammed into her, and her cries changed to gasps. The sounds combined with the wet sucking sounds of their flesh slapping together, filling the hallway and echoing up the stairs.

      Wow, you were quick on the mark, Marika! Yes, Tangled Past is the other book in the series. (For those wondering, my original request was that you leave the name of the other book in the series, then I realized as long as the first person answered it, the other participants would easily find the answer. So I changed the question.)

          LOL, no apologies necessary! You’re still eligible. And thanks for entering.

    I recently got a blackberry playbook.And I am loving reading my books on their. But I do still love my Sony reader too 🙂
    Thanks for the giveaway.

      You’re the first person I know to own a Playbook — they’ve had so much bad press lately it’s nice to hear someone who loves reading their books on one. My poor Sony reader died a year ago, but I loved it — especially the page turning button placement. Made it easy to read in bed so I only needed to use one hand to turn the page.

    I use my android phone or my kindle to read ebooks. I love it. My favorite place to read in the winter is curled up on the sofa, in the spring/fall anywhere outside enjoying the weather, in the summer anywhere cool or by the water.
    My heaven is reading all day every day.

    Blog Hopping! Woohoo!

    I love blog hopping! What a great way to discover new authors/blogs and visit with old friends.
    I love to read in bed. I prop myself up with pillows and get all comfy and read til my eyes cross. :} I have a older Sony ereader that is starting to go out and I am saving up for a new ereader. I can’t decide between the Nook and the Kindle, so when the time comes to get the new one, I will probably toss a coin. LOL
    Thanks for being part of the hop and for the chance to win such a fantastic prize!

    I use Kindle – that way I can access my eBooks on different devices easily and everything syncs well. As for where I read, it depends. I will read anywhere – standing, sitting, laying down, inside, outside, etc. I just won’t read while I’m riding in a moving car because of motion sickness LOL If I’m in the car, I usually have an audiobook 🙂

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    I love to read on my new bed in the dark with my kindle fire. It’s backlit so I can read in the dark and drift off to sleep. Then it turns itself off.

    My favorite place to read is in bed. I make a mountain of pillows 😉 and lay in the middle of them with my feet propped up! My hubby says it looks like I”m trying to build a pillow fort. And it don’t matter what I’m reading on I just love reading!

    I have a Kindle app on my Blackberry. I am too cheap/poor to buy a Kindle so I just use the free app! And I read everywhere! I think someday I may spend the money to get one (there is one for $79, right?) Thanks for doing the blog hop!

    I use my Kindle app on my Iphone. I like the portability and it keeps my books away from my kiddos. They do not need to be finding these. I love to read in bed with a cup of coffee.

  • March 24, 2012 at 2:15 pm

    I’ll read anywhere. I think I prefer my kindle at home and my Sony when I’m out and about as it’s sturdier. Thanks for the giveaway.

  • March 24, 2012 at 2:23 pm

    My Fave divice is my Kobo ereader which uses either pdf’s or epubs versions of books. Thanks for the great giveaway!!

    Awesome read that one, hanging to get hold of a couple of your books!
    At the moment i can only vouch for my kindle – i haven’t tried any other e-readers but i used to read with the kindle app on my Mac – not comfy to read there though!
    I usually curl up in my favourite lounge chair with coffee & chocolate while i read in peace & quiet once the kids are in bed!
    Thanks for the great giveaway!

    Thanks for the giveaway! I much prefer physical books, and i usually read in bed, or on the couch in our upstairs lounge.


  • March 24, 2012 at 11:51 pm

    MY KINDLE but nothing beats a good REAL book that you can hold in your hands. But….I love my Kindle too! Curled up on the bed or on the couch.

  • March 25, 2012 at 7:04 am

    I am torn between physicial books and ebooks. I have a nook and I do enjoy the ease of having my books with me but there is something about a physicial book to hold that I still like.
