MORE THAN JUST A KISS BLOGFEST

MORE THAN JUST A KISS BLOGFEST


What's in a kiss? Well, actually, quite a lot depending on who it's from, where you are, your mental state, their mental state, how long have you known  them.... 

So in honor of smooches everywhere, especially in fiction and non-fiction, Cecelia Roberts and Christine Rains are hosting a Blogfest dedicated to the delectable (or sometimes, NOT) kiss. We are posting scenes from our stories  - a kissing scene. First, if you'd like to participate, let's go over the rules:

1. Sign up on the linky list and post the badge on your blog.
2. On one of the days of the week of September 9th, post a kissing scene on your blog. It can be either fiction or non-fiction.
3. Please do not exceed 250 words.
4. This is a blogfest, so visit the other participants and have fun!


I'm sharing a scene from my YA urban fantasy, Finding Me. This is the first kiss between my protagonist and her love interest:


With my eyes shut, I concentrated. Possibly, if I thought of the two of us together, I could conjure something. I tried, hard. But nothing registered. Only the memories from the last couple days. “I’m sorry,” I said. Tears welled up in my eyes threatening to spill.

He drew my chin up to meet his darkened eyes. “Don’t worry. We have time.” He stroked the side of my face gently, and then traced his finger across my bottom lip. My mouth parted in anticipation. My heart raced and my knees buckled. He bent closer. His eyes never strayed from mine. I knew he wanted a kiss as much as I wanted one. His lips lingered by mine as we stared into each other. His eyes glossing to a warm caramel. He bent his head and closed the gap. Our lips touched. A shiver of delight fluttered through my abdomen. Our lips moved in harmony, the electric current pressed in on us again. It radiated from every crevice of my body.         

       “I love you,” he whispered. He continued to trace kisses along my neck then across my chin.
        I wanted to say I love you, too. But my heart wouldn’t allow me to tell that lie. However, I could be. Soon. If I could remember.                      
Maybe there’s nothing to remember. I slapped back this thought, and continued to kiss my new found soul mate. But with my eyes wide open. 


Have a Great day. Read a book and laugh!
