NO COVER YET 5. Don't Tempt Me by Loretta Chase. Coming June 30 from Avon
Synopsis: Spunky English girl overcomes impossible odds and outsmarts heathen villains. That’s the headline when Zoe Lexham returns to England. After twelve years in the exotic east, she’s shockingly adept in the sensual arts. She knows everything a young lady shouldn’t and nothing she ought to know. She’s a walking scandal, with no hope of a future...unless someone can civilize her.
Lucien de Grey, the Duke of Marchmont, is no knight in shining armor. He’s sarcastic, cynical, easily bored, and dangerous to women. He charms, seduces, and leaves them--with parting gifts of expensive jewelry to dry their tears. But good looks and charm, combined with money and rank, make him welcome everywhere. The most popular bachelor in the Beau Monde can easily save Zoe’s risqué reputation . . . if the wayward beauty doesn’t lead him into temptation, and a passion that could ruin them both.
Alright that's it you have until

"You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope. Tell me not that I am too late, that such precious feelings are gone for ever. I offer myself to you again with a heart even more your own than when you almost broke it, eight and a half years ago. Dare not say that a man forgets sooner than woman, that his love has an earlier death. I have loved none but you. Unjust I may have been, weak and resentful I have been, but never inconstant." ~ Persuasion
"In vain have I struggled, it will not do. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you." ~Pride and Prejudice
“All the fire of hell could burn for a thousand years and it wouldn’t equal what I feel for you in one minute of the day. I love you so much there is no pleasure in it. Nothing but torment. Because if I could dilute what I feel for you to the millionth part, it would still be enough to kill you. And even if it drives me mad, I would rather see you live in the arms of the cold, soulless bastard than die in mine.” ~ Merripen, Seduce Me at Sunrise by Lisa KleypasOur own Katie delivered this gorgeous gem:
“You want me to spell it out for you, Jade? I want you. Plain and simple. To clarify, I want to make love to you until we can’t walk. I want to spend every second possible inside of you. I want everything. I want you to take my last name. For the rest of my life, I want to wake up every morning and see your face. I want you to have my children, and I want to grow old with you.” ~ David, City of Secrets by Katie ReusSometimes real life even gives us these moments.
“You are enthralling.”
“I feel like I have been waiting for you for a long time. I tend to think I’m very lucky these days.”Even the movies can provide a perfect moment of romantic declaration.
"I love that you get cold when it's 71 degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle above your nose when you're looking at me like I'm nuts. I love that after I spend the day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes. And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night. I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible." ~When Harry Met Sally
He hovered THROUGH her, TWIDDLING both nipples until they were taut and BULBOUS underneath his BELLY BUTTON. "Tell me what you want," he said in her ARMPIT, GLIBLY tugging on the sensitive lobe as he GARGLED his length against her clit.
"I want you BEYOND me," she rasped, surprised she could even speak.
David DRIFTED the head of his penis in, SELF-RIGHTEOUSLY at first, but when she opened her ELBOWS wider and moved her hips to meet his, he thrust hard. She let out a tiny WOOF, and he momentarily stilled. She was wet and willing, but still STALWART. When she started grinding her body in tune with his, he gripped her TOES and began WILTING, barely containing the lust demanding to be unleashed. She was so incredibly tight he knew their first time would not be as long as he liked.
Her hands moved around to his WEIRD LITTLE SPOT BEHIND THE KNEES THAT HAS NO NAME , gripping and SINGING, as if she couldn’t get close enough to him. Her eyes might be closed, but the pleasure that played across her features filled him with pure, male APPREHENSION.
She DROOLED underneath him, eyes half closed as if drugged, and he drank in the sight of her movements, trying to memorize every inch of her HAIRY, ENGORGED form. AQUAMARINE hair pillowed around her face, over her small, WONKY PUCE
breasts, and onto the TANGERINE sheets. Jade arched her body to meet his, and he inhaled her scent. BLEACH and SANDLEWOOD surrounded him, pulling him deeper into the tangle that was pure Jade.
He wasn’t going to last long the way things were going. He was inside Jade. That thought alone almost caused him to EAT on the spot. He knew it wasn’t a dream because dreams didn’t feel this good.
Good Monday morning everyone! This is my first day on the DIK island so I thought we would talk about love letters.
Love letters are awesome. We love to write them, we love to receive them and like the voyeurs we are, we like to read love letters from fictional characters in books and from people in real life. I like to call them, Passive Emotional Artistry or PEA for short. Heh. Love letters can bring two people closer, help to smooth over bad mojo, facilitate a little bedroom action and if we have learned nothing else from romance novels, we have certainly learned love letters are a powerful blackmail tool. If you are reading a romantic suspense they can also be a reason for murder and mayhem. Tribute anyone?
