In Honor of International Kissing Day…

The first kiss between Marcus and Brylie in Midnight Sun, available from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Smashwords (half off with the coupon SSW50)

He tucked the wine glasses in the cup holders on her private table, then turned to her, curving his hands over her hips. He crowded her against the wall as he brought his mouth down on hers, his lips firm and dry, his breath flavored with the shiraz. She quivered, waiting for the kiss to deepen. Instead, he brushed his mouth back and forth over her parted lips, then dipped his tongue between them. A needy sound tore from her throat as she slipped her hands up his arms to his shoulders—so hard—before curling around the back of his neck, her fingers playing over the short hair there. She angled her head to deepen the kiss as she pulled him closer. He chuckled against her mouth and drew her hips forward. Memories of the other night flooded her with desire.

The first kiss between Noah and Ellie in Something to Talk About, available from Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Lyrical.

Her breath shuddered out on a nervous laugh as he curved his fingers over her hips, drawing her slightly forward, his eyes on hers. A shiver ran though her and for a moment he thought she’d pull away as he eased closer. Her breath washed sweetly over his mouth, lemony. She’d been to Mrs. Merina’s for lemonade.

He smiled and his nose bumped hers. His fingers tightened, just a bit, as he brushed her parted lips with his.

She made a small sound in the back of her throat as he slanted his mouth over hers, reining in his hunger to concentrate on the taste of her, the feel of her, the rhythm of her breath, of her heart. He wanted to absorb her, to savor her. Then her hands were on him, one sliding beneath his collar, her thumb playing at the placket of his shirt. Desire moved, thick and hot and, God help him, unfamiliar, through his veins. Her other hand skimmed the shoulder seam of his shirt, back and forth, cupping his shoulder a moment. Her touch heated his skin so he deepened the kiss and pulled her body against his. Her breath caught and she leaned forward, gliding her hand around his shoulders, leaning into him. Just as her hand crept up to play in his hair…

“Uncle Noah!”

What are your favorite first kisses?

    I love both your first kisses! And yumm, liking the pic you posted.

    Okay, what about Veronica Mars and Logan Echols? That was a good kiss. 🙂
    And once in a while I go back to see that deleted scene from Battlestar Gallactica between Kara and Leoben. Considerably edgier and darker than Veronica. LOL.
