My New Release!!!

Giselle’s Elf
By
Lynn Crain


Available NOW!
Book 4.5 in the Santa’s Elves Series


http://tinyurl.com/GisellesElf




Ronan swung her up into his arms, then strode through the penthouse toward her bedroom. “Only I get to see you as you are now.” He sat her on the edge of her king bed, pushed her down gently. His mouth took in her other nipple, tweaking the first before going even lower to continue its assault down her stomach while his hands sustained their exquisite torture of her breasts. He hovered over her crotch, breath hot as his rough bearded chin rubbed the soft skin right above her underwear. “I want this gone as well.” His thumbs hooked under the edge of lace.

She was surprised by his actions as his husky voice made her shiver. “Ronan, it’s been a long time. I’ve never…” her voice came in short gasps.

“You’ll like it.”

She placed her hands on his larger ones, stopped him and closed her eyes. “I’m—I’m sure I will. Give me a moment to take it all in.”

He stopped moving his hands on her body and looked up at her from his position on the floor. “You don’t want this?”

Giselle lifted the corners of her mouth. “No, that’s not it. I want to make sure you want this.”

He was still for a few moments, his breathing raspy. “I want this.”

His statement was solid, brooked no argument. He wanted her. And finally, she could yield to a searing desire that had been growing since he rescued her from harm on a night long ago. He was all she wanted, had ever wanted. Why was she just now seeing it?

Maybe because I’d never seen him before my rescue.

“Relax. This will be wonderful.”

She gave a low, hallow chuckle, trying to break the tension, thinking she would return the favor the first moment she got. For now, she was lost in sensation. She closed her eyes. He touched her most intimate places. His tongue circled her belly button, followed by tiny nip-kisses, going down further still to caress her hip. Then he pulled the lace away, exposing the tip of her shaved crotch.

“Smooth. Interesting. Do all human women do this?”

She was brought out of her sensual thoughts. “What?”

He looked up at her face, a wry smile on his. “Shave.”

She shook her head to get her bearings. “Sometimes. They did it in the hospital when they were afraid my hip bones were cracked and I’ve kept it up.” She shuddered then, trying hard not to think of that night.

“I’ll make you forget what happened to you.”

Ronan pulled her underwear down her legs and tossed them in the corner. Spreading her legs, his hot breath rained down on her crotch for a moment before he replaced it with his tongue. His tongue licked her first top to bottom, then his mouth suckled her labia, opening those lips with that same fiery tongue. His fingers ran smoothly over her clit, downward, then back up again, causing her to quiver in pleasure.

I like the cover. It's very straight forward and does not have a lot going on in the background which helps make your characters stand out. And I have a thing for pointed ears...

It's certainly true inspiration comes in many forms. I find that snippets of conversations, or a headline in the newspaper can spark an idea. If you open yourself up to your surroundings, you'll find inspiration all around.

Congrats on your release!

Lil said...

Congratulations on your new release. Enjoyed the excert. You know, now all of us will want an elf.

buddyt said...

Congratulations on your release.

I have never quite pictured an elf as you portray them but I suppose all these fairy tale creatures are now being represented in modern day romance.

I am not sure I agree as I LIKE Fantasy such as Lord of the Rings, etc.

Lisa said...

Sound good! Happy Birthday to all august baby!

Thanks much!

There have been times when I did want to be an elf. Imagine what it would be like to have magic at your fingertips. Sigh.

It's one of the major reasons I write this type of book.

Thanks for stopping by.

Lynn Crain said...

Buddy T.,

I too love the traditional stuff but Tolkein had to wait a long time before he got any real recognition for Lord of the Rings. I just love his style and everything he wrote. Can't wait to see the Hobbit when it comes out in theaters.

And yeah, this type of romance is very popular right now. It helps to remind me just why I love the genre.

Thanks for stopping by!
