Here are some samples of first kisses by the characters in my Riverboat Mysteries trilogy.
Walt chuckled and sat on the edge beside her. “It was easy. I just rubbed your feet and you were blown out like a candle.” He leaned down and brushed her lips with his.
“Well, you certainly know how to wake a woman.” She smiled sleepily and pulled him back for another longer kiss
She swooped down, kissed his mouth, and forced his lips apart. The touch of her hands pushing up his shirt and her fingers stroking his abs and chest nearly undid him. When she pressed her core against his penis, he couldn’t hold back his groan.
Without realizing what he was doing, he pulled her close and bent down to her lip glossed mouth and kissed her. At her gasp as his tongue entered her mouth, he remembered she wasn’t experienced, and he stopped just embracing her as he tried to calm his breathing. Holding her, he chastised himself.
As you can see these kisses are very different, and the reason is because the characters are different. In The Catalyst, Carolyn Madison was a rape victim, so Walt goes very slowly with her.
In Addiction, the heroine has been married before and she's been in a relationship since her divorce. She's a take charge kind of gal.
In The Deceived, the heroine is a virgin, so the hero, Mike, tries to calm his hormones and take it as slow as he can.
What was your first kiss like with your husband/wife, or significant other? Do you even remember? Mine started out sweet and slow and became very sensuous. Smile! That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.
Happy Valentine's Day, everyone! Enjoy the day with your loved ones.
Thank you for reading. Have a great week, and I'll see you next Sunday.
