Just kiss already!!! Blogfest entry and Celebration Winners....

Happy V-day!!!  Today, I'm participating in Christina Lee's "Just Kiss Already Blogfest".  Thanks for a fun one, Christina!  If you're in the mood for a little smooching today... please click HERE to visit the rest of the participants ~

My blogfest entry here (from my WiP "The Glass Prince" - YA - urban fantasy):

Clara stood up again and walked back through the tunnel. She stopped at the mouth of it. Neil was looking right at her. She waved to him and he shrugged a silent “what’s taking so long?” She held up one finger and turned back around. Rion was right there, a few inches away from her, both of them hidden behind a wall of Ivy. Clara felt a flutter in her belly.



“He was right, you know,” he said, his voice low and breathy. “You are beautiful.”


Clara grabbed on to Rion, but only because she suddenly felt dizzy. He held on to her and pulled her closer to him. Their bodies touched. She saw his head tilt lower towards her own. She felt his breath warm on her face. She wanted to turn and run, but her legs were as solid as the stone columns all around them. His lips touched lightly on hers at first. But, then he kissed her hard and deep with an urgency she didn’t quite understand. She surrendered to him completely. Images began to fill her head, more and more and faster the longer they kissed. She saw disjointed pictures, apples and crowns, the glass prince, her grandmother, her father’s face.


She pushed him away then and rubbed the back of her hand across her lips.


“Quit doing that!” she yelled at him. She turned and ran back up the stairs until she reached Neil.

Wow, that was an intriguing little clip there! Is she psychic? Is he telepathic? Was she referring to the kiss ... or the imagines?

Hmmmm ...

Good job.

Tracy said...

I really like the name Rion. Is this Urban Fantasy? Is Rion one of the fae? Because I've developed a slight addiction to fae men lately, so that's how I'm envisioning him at least. ;o)

Elaine AM Smith said...

Rion?! SNAP! My mc is Rion too.

Visions disturbing the passion must be a total turn off. I'm glad she laid into him after he used her to see!

Madeleine said...

Such passion! :O)

Stina Lindenblatt said...

Oh, wow! I'm really curious what Rion just did to her beyond that hot kiss.

Christina Lee said...

NICELY done! I also like how she yells at him at the end! And what were the images in her head all about???

Margo Berendsen said...

I loved the potential "triangle" thing going here between Clara and Rion and Neil. and the images flashing through her head during the kiss. I haven't seen that done before (though it has happened to me :) Nice scene!

Talei said...
