~Yours For Now Excerpt~
Elizabeth unclasped her hands from around his neck and tried to take a step back, but his hand at her back stopped her. His eyes bore into hers. She wanted to pull him back to her and forget all about rules and regulations, but the rational part of her brain overrode the part that was tempted to rip Preston’s clothes from his body. She already missed the feel of his lips against hers.
“We still have things to talk about.”
“I know the rules, Eliza. I won’t break them. I promise.”
He circled his arms around her waist and tried to kiss her again, but she pushed against his chest. “Preston, yesterday you promised to talk about this more before we started. Are you backing out on your promise?”
He took a step away from her and bumped into the chair he was just sitting in. He sank down onto the seat. “You got five minutes to think of more rules. After that, you’re mine.”
Her toes curled. She was ready to be his, all night long and again in the morning.
“First things first. You can’t tell me I have five minutes because I get to be in charge for the first two weeks.”
“Shit,” Preston mumbled under his breath.
“Rule number…whatever number we’re on now, no cursing. You know I hate that.”
“Okay, I promise not to curse when we’re together.” He waved his hand trying to speed her up.
“Great, next rule is…” Elizabeth ran her hands through her hair and glanced around the room looking for inspiration. “The next rule is…” She stared at the salad and dressing on the table. They probably wouldn’t be eating that tonight. “I need to put this in the refrigerator.”
“Elizabeth Abigail Kemp.” Preston leaned his head back against the chair and closed his eyes. She could hear the frustration in his voice. Her gaze travelled down the length of his body and landed on the erection straining against his pants.
“Oh my,” she whispered before turning and grabbing the salad bowl and taking it to the refrigerator. She was unable to see Preston with the refrigerator open. Instead of closing it after she was done, she leaned in further, relishing the feel of the cold air on her heated skin.
“Elizabeth, if I’m not inside you within the next few seconds I’m going to explode.”
Her knees buckled. She gripped the refrigerator tighter for balance. She heard a chair scrape against the kitchen floor. A second later she felt his erection against her ass. She stood up straight and nearly came undone, her movement pushing her closer against his hardness.
“Your two weeks have just begun.” His breathing was irregular. “Where do you want me? The bedroom or the couch?” he asked.
She closed the door. Turning around, she pressed her back against the refrigerator. These two weeks were hers. She refused to let him dominate during her time no matter how delicious he looked standing in front of her. “Take your clothes off.”
~Today I have with me the characters from my steamy romance, Yours For Now. Elizabeth and Preston will be sharing with you five things they are thankful for.~
1 – I’m thankful for life. Waking up each day is truly a blessing and I think we all should appreciate life more. There were days when I thought I would go to sleep and never wake up. Which leads me to the second thing I’m thankful for.
2 – I’m thankful that I eventually got the strength and courage to leave my ex. I don’t think I would be alive today if I’d allowed myself to stay in that situation. So I’m thankful for strength and courage.
3 – I’m also thankful for my friends. My besties mean the world to me. Love you ladies.
4 – This should’ve been number one but better late than never right? I’m thankful for Preston Lancaster, my colleague, my friend and my lover. Thank you for seeing the good in me when I didn’t see it in myself. I love you!
5- I’m thankful for curiosity, lol. I’ve always been curious of BDSM and that led me to asking Preston to try it out with me. Imagine my surprise when he said yes. Imagine my shock when I found out about all of the wonderful things he could do with his tongue…..simply amazing. 🙂
1 – I’m thankful for Elizabeth. I’m thankful that she allowed me into her life as a friend and then as more. I’m thankful for her love. I love you baby.
2 – I’m thankful that Elizabeth and I get to work together each day. I love waking up to her in the morning then riding to work with her while she sings off beat to one of Lady Ga Ga songs.
3 – I’m thankful for my parents. They always push me to do better, be better. I’m thankful that they believe in me and I’m thankful that they love Elizabeth just as much as I do.
4 – I’m thankful for the police. Even though they didn’t believe me when I told them that my ex was stalking me and that she’d scratched up my car. In the end they came through for me, so I guess I should be thankful.
5 – I’m thankful for handcuffs. They come in handy when I want to take my time and savor every inch of Elizabeth’s body. The feel of her writhing against my tongue is one of the greatest feelings in the world.
The question: “Would you like to try BDSM with me?”
Elizabeth Kemp never thought she’d ask friend and colleague, Preston Lancaster to be her submissive. Even more surprising, he agrees – on one condition: she has to return the favor. Her two weeks as his Domme ends with a dramatic climax she wasn’t prepared for – she’s hopelessly in love and terrified he’ll break her heart.
Dr. Preston Lancaster has been in love with Elizabeth since the day they met. His two weeks with her are more than he ever imagined, but when the tables are turned, she refuses to make good on her promise to reciprocate. Preston isn’t giving up without a fight, but he’s not fighting for two weeks of dominance anymore. He’s fighting for forever.
Can Preston convince Elizabeth that her heart is safe with him – or will two weeks be all he has?
