Excerpt

From Ignite

As she began to unbutton his shirt, exposing his carved chest and perfect skin, she realized she was shaking. She peppered kisses down the length of his neck to his chest, following her hands as she slipped one button free then another.

Moaning, he tugged his shirt free of his jeans, wrangling to rid himself of the unwanted material. “Your kisses are incredible,” he whispered and pulled away her shirt until he could reach underneath.

The moment he brushed his fingers across her heated skin, she gasped and dropped her head. Every part of her was tingling as the adrenaline flowed. Her pussy clenching, she was wet all over as excitement surged through her. “Oh… Mmm…”

Using both hands, he crawled the cotton shirt up along her sides to her shoulders then helped free her arms and head. His eyes narrowing, he dropped the shirt to the floor and breathed in before lowering his head, licking her earlobe.

Her breath skipping, she arched her back as he licked her neck, sucking on her skin until he reached the area between her breasts. With each drag of his tongue, every brush of his fingers, she was electrified.

He kneaded her breasts, rubbing his thumbs back and forth across her lace covered nipples. Emitting a single growl, he leaned over and sucked on her hardened bud through her bra.

“Oh God!” She gripped his arms to keep from falling and blinked as lights flashed in front of her eyes. She fumbled to find his buckle, tugging until she managed to loosen his belt.

“Careful, love.”

“Who me?” she breathed and unzipped his jeans, freeing his throbbing cock. When he groaned the second she wrapped her hand around the base of his shaft, she slid her hand between his legs, squeezing his balls. She bit her lower lip as she rolled his swollen testicles between her fingers.

“God, the way you touch me,” he whispered and eased his hands around to her back, unfastening her bra with ease. As he gazed down, his eyes filling with lust, he slowly removed the piece of lingerie. “Beautiful.” He brushed his thumb across her cheek before leaning over, taking her nipple into his mouth.

“Oh!” Squealing, she struggled to remain standing as he sucked on her hardened bud, swirling his tongue in long and lazy circles. She gulped for air as he moved to her other breast, this time biting down on her nipple. A wash of current jetted through every cell as she pumped his cock, twisting her hand until he grunted from the friction.

Stoker closed his eyes and eased back, pinching her nipples between his thumbs and forefingers. “I need to be inside of you.”
