Welcome back to Sexy Snippets, 7 sentences shared from your work-in-progress or published book, hosted by The Nuthouse Scribblers.
This week I’m sharing from His Strength, the 2nd book in the historical romance Men of Valor series.
Here’s the blurb:
As a young widow, Nneka yearns to be released from the obligations to her late husband’s family, and live as an independent woman. With a past colored by a brutal father, she’ll never yield to another man willingly, and will do just about anything to attain that freedom, including flouting the laws of the land.
Ikem was unable to claim Nneka once because his lineage meant he wasn’t good enough. Now fate has given him another chance, but he quickly discovers that claiming this unpredictable wildcat is easier said than done. Will he be able to convince her that succumbing to their passion is the key to her freedom?
In this scene, Ikem visits Nneka at his home for the first time but she isn’t altogether swooning at his feet. He’s got a plan to wear her down. For how long can she resist? Enjoy the snippet.
“Liar,” he whispered before he lowered his head, but he didn’t claim her lips immediately. Instead he feathered her face and neck with kisses, alternating between nipping and licking her sweet-salty skin. Her breathing increased rapidly. When he looked up, he noticed that her eyes were closed. He licked the pulse at her neck before he trailed his lips back up and hovered above her lips. She opened her eyes and moaned softly.
“Say it, Nneka. You want me to kiss you.”
