Excerpt: Renewal (Irresistible edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel)

Last Valentine’s Day, Irresistible: Erotic Romance for Couples, edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel was released.

My story, Renewal, is one of the stories included in that anthology.  Below is an excerpt…

            “I used to feel lust when I saw you.  I’d look at your hands and fantasize about them sliding under my skirt at that movie we saw on our third date.  I’d see your dimples and remember all the stuff you talked me into…remember Cabo?  Now it’s like you’re a stranger.  But I’m a stranger, too.  I didn’t recognize myself in a mirror today.  We’re two strangers.”

I desperately needed him to understand what I wanted.

As I’d talked, Super Corporate Guy had fallen away.  Justin had leaned against the wall, hands in his pockets, lips quirking in small smiles at the memories. “Strangers?”  He rolled the word around in his mouth, testing its flavor.


“If you were my wife, I’d tell you that I’d work harder on us.  That I love you.  But you’re a stranger.”  As he circled me, inhaling my perfume, his voice got deeper.

“That’s right.  I’m a stranger.  And you’re here for one reason.”

“You’re the kind of woman who’d bring a stranger to a hotel room for that?” he asked, his hand sliding over my breast, pinching my nipple for emphasis.

That touch sent a long missing ripple through my body.  I hesitated, hoping he’d remember what I love.  The pinch grew harder until I gasped, then changed to a rhythmic back and forth against the erect nub hungry for that exact touch.  My eyes closed with pleasure.  He leaned forward and began to nibble on my neck, his finger still at work on my breast, his other hand sliding down to cup my ass.

“Yes” I hissed with pleasure.
