Hoping that training goes well and I get more sleep the rest of this week than I did the last time we had a puppy.

Too many…

By Vivian Arend

There’s way too many.

Too many things to do on this Monday, with school starting and trying to get a little R&R in still.

Too many peaches in the box on the floor that I have to find time to can before they over ripen.

And too many words in the novella. I finished The Wind and the Sun first draft yesterday, but it topped out over the 15K limit for submission. Sigh. So it’s off with a pair of scissors before I can get it to some readers. That deadline of September 30th looms…

I guess it’s better than being bored.

The Wind and the Sun

Excerpt Three

She had the most atrocious manners and she was driving his body wild.

Sometime after they’d completed the first feeding frenzy to fill the empty pits in their stomachs, Sunshine had turned the meal into an exotic form of torture.

She picked up another rib, the sound of her delight catching him square in the balls. She licked her little pink tongue along one side of the rib and over the other before inserting the entire bone into her mouth up to halfway. Her lips closed around the meat and she pulled her hand away, her teeth rasping lightly over the now clean bone. She seemed to swallow the meat whole before licking every bit of sauce off her rosy lips.

Zephyr watched, mesmerized, as she flipped the bone around and cleaned it off, her mouth working in a way that he could only dream he’d be experiencing.

He’d begun to lose sensation in his legs, and people must think he was hyper; he couldn’t sit still for longer than 5 minutes without having to wiggle to try to relieve the pressure.

But there was only one thing that was going to relieve his pain. Well, two. Well, maybe more, he had a good imagination. But it didn’t seem like any of them were going to happen in the next 5 seconds when he would really like something to be happening.

“It’s all really good, Zephyr. I especially like the steak. Want a piece?”

The little minx had cut a thin slice off and had it on her fork, hovering inches away from his mouth. Her eyes stared at him, the corner of her mouth lifted in a pixie of a smile. He opened his mouth and let her feed him. When he closed his lips over the tidbit he jerked; Sunshine had slipped her free hand under the table and now it rested on the front of his jeans. The very hard front of his jeans.

He swallowed quickly.

“I think,” Sunshine said, “that the best part of the meal is all the flavours. The way they mix and combine. The sweet of the BBQ flavour with the tang of the baked beans.”

She was rubbing up and down along his length, hard enough that the far too sensitized head of his cock was beginning to weep with joy.

He was not going to come in his jeans like a teenager. He was not.

Please, don’t let him come in his jeans.

Sunshine’s lilting voice continued. “I think that’s the best part. Don’t you? I really like, especially now when I think of it, I really like the more savory flavours. In fact, I think I know exactly what I want for dessert.”

She didn’t mean…

Sunshine kissed his cheek and then with a quick glance to make sure no one was looking, she slipped under the table.

Excerpt Two

She may have been the one to slow things down, but that didn’t mean her body wasn’t strumming with need at his mere proximity. Damn the contest anyway, she wanted to lick him all over.

Right now.

“Sunshine, I think you need to come over here.” Zephyr sounded concerned and she scrambled over. It was a sandcastle. What could possibly cause that note in his voice?

She looked all around the edges. Moat was fine, the wall was fine. The tall towering turrets they’d managed to get to rise to waist height stood solid.

“What do you need?” Sunshine flicked a glance at his face and suddenly his arms were around her, drawing her body tight against his torso.

She melted. It was the only way to describe it. Every inch of her skin nestled against his. The slight dusting of sand caught between them tickled in some spots but she wasn’t about to complain.

Zephyr slipped a hand into her hair. “I need a kiss.” He guided their mouths together, controlling the movement to keep it slow and gentle. Closed lips brushed over hers, hot and brief, like a small gust over desert sand. He pulled away and she heard someone make a horrible whining sound.

Oops, it was her.

“Zephyr?”

“Yes, babe?”

“More? Please?” Sunshine leaned in and kissed him back. She let her hands rise around his shoulders. They were both sweaty and covered in sunscreen and everywhere there was sand, but she didn’t care. She touched him lightly to keep the harsh grit from scratching him, unable to stop her need to caress her palms over his back, down his waist, over his firm butt.

He opened his mouth and their tongues touched. His taste filled her, made her want to ignore the let’s-go-slow message she’d sent earlier and throw herself backward in the sand and cry “take me.”

Of course, that would be fairly painful with the sand everywhere.

All she cared about was getting more of Zephyr. More of his kisses, more of his touch. She pulled loose the back tie on her bikini, reached higher to slip the top knot. She grabbed his wrists and dragged his hands down her body.

“Touch me, Zephyr.”

He groaned and pulled back. “It was too fast before. I didn’t get to enjoy touching you. Oh sweet mercy, Sunshine, you’re gorgeous.” His gaze fixated on her breasts and she arched her back slightly to make sure he got the best possible view. His hand cupped her, lifted her. He slid his thumbs over her nipples like a whisper and they pebbled into tight peaks.

Their bodies molded together at the hips, his rigid length pressing into her belly. She shifted slightly, rubbing against him and Zephyr sucked in air.

“I thought we were going slow, sweetheart? If you do that again I might forget, and as much as I want you, I want to taste you first. I want to see if those rosy nipples are as sweet as the berries they look like.”

He rolled her nipples between his fingers. Heat flashed to her core, boiling her blood and yet causing icy tingles to race up her neck at the same time. His head dropped and he lapped at her skin, nipping at her shoulder, her collarbone. Licking a line to the top of her right breast. Zephyr sucked lightly to pull her skin against his mouth. He nipped the spot, kissing away the snap of pain that resulted. The lingering aftereffect was nothing but pleasure.

Then he blew.

His breath, warm and solid, brushed over the line of moisture he’d left behind as he descended and rays of heat shot over her breast. Pleasure mounted in her pussy, tight hard jolts of pleasure tweaked at her again and again as he slipped his attack farther down, farther toward her straining nipple.

He touched her. A soft lap. Sunshine closed her eyes and rocked at the sensations rippling through her body. He pulled the tip into his mouth and suckled. Another jolt followed and her knees beginning to shake. His arm came up, slipped around her waist to support her before she collapsed against him. His teeth closed on the very tip and he paused.

Sunshine held her breath. What was he waiting for? Her breast throbbed with the need for more of his touch. She locked her fingers tighter in his hair and pulled at him, wanting to crush him to her breast.

He resisted and kept his distance. Just the right distance to be able to touch her at his own pace.

He lapped.

He sucked.

He lapped.

Sunshine cried out, her complaint unpronounceable. He was a bastard in twenty different languages and if he didn’t give her what she needed—

He sucked.

“Zephyr!”

The WInd and the Sun

A little thing I’m working on for submission …

Copyright 2008 Vivian Arend

Excerpt from Chapter One

The rustling sound had stopped and Sunshine heard the flick of a bottle opening beside her. She smiled. Now she had him drinking his sorrows away. Score four, but who was counting?

“What do you think about a rematch?”

Sunshine lifted a perfectly shaped brow and turned to face him. She wanted to hit him with the full look of disdain that she’d been practicing in front of her mirror.

Oh. My. Word.

Zephyr was lying on a second recliner, mere inches away from her. The beer bottle she expected to see in his hand, the forlorn expression she expected to see on his face as he drooled over her… nowhere in sight. All she saw was skin.

Hot, naked, firm, glistening skin.

Did she mention naked?

Holy Sahara, the boy had gone mad. He’d dropped every last stitch from his body and slathered himself in oil before reclining like a Greek god on his couch. He was resting on one elbow, his upper body flexed to show arms that would have made Hercules a happy man. Firm muscles swelled under the skin of his chest, and Sunshine’s fingers actually twitched with the need to press her palms against him to see if he was as solid as he looked. The ridges of his abs defined a beautiful six-pack, no eight, no… Hell, was it possible to have a 12 pack? She couldn’t be sure because she was…kind of distracted… from concentrating on counting… because a trail of intriguing curls led down to where one leg stretched out, one bent up to perfectly frame…

Well, let’s just say someone was happy to see her.

Very happy.

Heat, like she usually only produced on extreme summer days, flushed over her skin and she involuntarily licked her suddenly dry lips.

A wicked chuckle distracted her from her sightseeing excursion.

“So what do you think?”

Zeus on a stick, what did she think about what? Sunshine forced her mouth shut and hurriedly wiped the drool from her chin, trying to make it look like she was covering a yawn.

Yeah, right. A yawn. Only because the total oxygen level in her body had dropped to negative twenty in 30 seconds or less. If she didn’t take in some air she was going to pass out.

Come on girl, pull it together. This was war…

“I’m sorry, were you talking to me? I was expecting the cabana boy with a refill sometime soon. It’s just impossible to get good service anymore.” Sunshine plucked a fan out of midair and started to gently wave it in front of her neckline. She wanted to produce a bucket of ice but that would have been a little obvious.

Shit, he was gorgeous. Why had she never noticed before?
