Sunday Snippet: A Little More

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season, no matter what you celebrate. And if you don't recognize a particular season, I hope you had a great week.

Happened to catch a teaser for Banshee, returning January 9. Gotta say, I can't wait. Also watched Pacific Rim about five more times. I love that movie. LOL

Other than waiting for a few more shows to return, I've been spending my holiday with The Doctor. I gripe about BBC America only showing Top Gear and Gordon Ramsey cooking shows all the time (seriously, it annoys the bejesus out of me), but I do love it when they marathon a favorite show.

Anyway, tonight's post is from A Little More, a sexy short where my main characters live and work together.

Here's the tagline: Lexie Krost and Tighe Milligan work and live together—and a little more—on a remote base in the depths of space. They shouldn't act on their attraction, but the pull is strong and once they've crossed the line they have to figure out how to be a little less.

And a sneaky peek…

Lexie shoved the sock behind her back, but Tighe took advantage and leaned in, capturing her mouth with his. No gentle kiss, the embrace turned smoking hot as soon as their lips met. Lexie melted into Tighe, one arm snaking around his waist, drawing him closer. Tighe grasped her hips, pulling her flush against him. His hand drifted around to cup her ass then slid upward, stopping just above her waistline. Lost in the moment, Lexie brought her other hand up to grasp his bicep, her tongue slipping past his lips to tangle against his. Tighe moaned against her mouth then abruptly broke the kiss, blowing out a harsh breath.
He stepped back. "Not a bad way to get what I want." He dangled the sock in front of her face.
Lexie barely kept her mouth from dropping open. "Aren't you full of surprises?" She made a half-hearted attempt to snatch the footwear out of his hand, but he yanked his hand away and quickly shoved his foot into the standard military gray issue.
She had to give him props.
Big ones. Not only had he distracted her by the ticklefest, he'd made her hotter than a steam valve ready to blow. She waited until he straightened up before taking a step forward, nudging him back against the opposite wall.
When he cocked his head to one side, a confused look on his face, she grinned.
Trailing a finger down his sternum, she met his gaze. "You're not really gonna leave me hanging, are you?" Her hand dropped lower, her palm cupping his erection. "Besides, your interesting diversion kind of backfired. Seems you've got something of a problem to take care of." A slow smile twisted her lips. "Want a little help with that?"

I love writing a short little glimpse into the beginning of a relationship. Or heck, even the middle of one. J

That's it for this week. Catch everyone on the flipside.
