First Kiss Giveaway Kick-off!!

  So I was talking to my good friend Nora and we agreed that what better way to kick off the month of love than with a giveaway and the first post in my First Kiss Event?  So I hog-tied Nora, and we put together, not only a sizzling First-Kiss piece but an awesome Gift package with Godiva, An excellent read, and a heart warming movie :)  And here to tell you all about it is the lovely Nora Weston.  Take it away Nora!

First Kiss Event

What comes to mind when I hear first kiss? Newspapers, rain, a pounding heart,, well—I’ll just leave it at that! A first kiss should be memorable, should make you quiver as your temperature rises while time is obliterated by uncontrollable passion. Allie (Rachel McAdams) and Noah (Ryan Gosling) in The Notebook know how to bring the heat. Yeah, they invade each other’s space real nice. Forbidden love tangles Allie and Noah in a web saturated with desire that pays no mind to what anyone thinks. Against the wins and does so with kisses galore in this romantic movie from 2004.

While I enjoyed every steamy minute of The Notebook, Gray (Jennifer Garner) and Fritz (Timothy Olyphant) in Catch and Release kiss in a way sure to satisfy. These two are opposites...can’t stand each other since Gray is everything wise and practical and Fritz is the epitome of recklessness, or is he? Their first kiss is filled with tension, an absolute hunger for each other, and then gentleness overtakes them as their bodies mold together. Awesome first kiss...

In my latest release, “The Twelfth Paladin,” Jake Cottrell is a seeker of mischief who learns the hard way forbidden desire can get a person into hot water...literally, since his soul is fated to boil in Hell. Jake is attracted to all things wicked, including Rachel Darnell, a breathtaking seductress who has an insatiable craving for him. Take a peek into their world as Rachel takes a bite out of her boy-toy, forever altering his perception of reality.

Let's take a little Peek at Nora's Book and Movie:
In The Twelfth Paladin, good against evil battles as an angel, demons, and a temptress extraordinaire, named Rachel Darnell, vie for the soul of Jake Cottrell. Jake foolishly dares Hell to burn him. Hell agrees.

Scarred with angelfire by a rebellious angel, named Micah, Jake Cottrell is sanctioned to become the twelfth paladin in Micah’s supernatural unit of slayers. However, regret abounds as Micah is banished and ordered to protect what he now despises…a human he believes is unworthy of such an honor. Never fear, Jake is a seeker of mischief who soars on a blistering blacktop to escape the wrath of Hell while he transforms into the twelfth paladin.

The Twelfth Paladin
(Chapter Eleven/Excerpt)

Jake Cottrell pretends to be Doctor Davis Travis in order to seduce the enticing Rachel Darnell. Big big as any Jake will ever make. Their first kiss leaves Jake breathless and dying for more of her. Ever feel that way about someone? Lucky you!

I fled down the steps and into the kitchen. I noticed Davis had left out whiskey and vodka on the counter. He had read my mind. Gathering up the alcohol, I was ready to party hard, like I knew I may never do it though Armageddon was about to befall us. “Thanks, Davis,” I said grabbing black glasses wrapped in silver dragons décor, and then I raced upstairs famished like a wild animal. Back upstairs, I didn’t think about consequences, or right and wrong. I just dove into the treacherous jungle I’d created.

Rachel grabbed the whiskey, and then hit play on the sound system. Kashmir, by Led Zeppelin, and my favorite song, rocked us into the night. “Screw the glasses...” Rachel gulped it and then licked her fingers. Whiskey flowed all over her low-cut dress, so now her breasts were wet with that sin filled alcohol.

Laura grabbed the vodka and she, too, skipped a glass. “Have some!” She poured vodka down my throat, which burned worse than usual, but since Laura had stripped…my throat became unimportant. She fell on the bed saying, “I’m ready for my check-up, Doc.”

“Whoa...nice.” My eyes lit up as I smiled at Laura. That pissed off Rachel—all the better for me.

“Get over here!” demanded Rachel. “I want a bite out of you, and you’d better taste damn good.”

I motioned to Laura to hold up for a second and walked over to Rachel aching to know what she’d do to me.

Her lips smacked hard upon mine. Rachel almost sucked my life away as she slid my pants off. Her red claws scratched my chest. “Oh, yeah, great muscular’ll do just fine.”

I unzipped that amazing red dress and tore it off, unveiling the most succulent body I’d ever seen. Looking up toward Heaven, I said, “Thank you!” Full breasts, tiny waist, and an ass I had to touch. Well, I should have looked down...way down.

Both of our naked bodies dropped to the floor where we meshed upon a huge oriental rug. Strange voices in my head ordered me to fulfill my every forbidden desire, so I listened. Violating every inch of Rachel’s scorching hot body left me hungry for more of her, no…dying for her.

Rachel’s moans of ecstasy were loud and clear as we became saturated in sin. Slowly, we made our way to the bed where Laura joined in on the fun. Laura got on top of me. Her lips were soft, delivering gentle kisses, and her embrace was tender and sweet. I felt younger with Laura, more like I felt in high school. These two were quite a pair. Laura was a kitten and Rachel, a wild panther.

However, just when I thought I’d get two for the price of one, Rachel caressed Laura’s cheek whispering, “Hush, child…time to sleep.”

Laura passed out, leaving Rachel free to be with me.

“Hey, my beauty, let’s shower,” I said grabbing her hand.

And we a black marble tiled shower that was gigantic, almost as big as my entire bathroom.

Over and over, Rachel pleasured me. Her wet, slippery body pressed up against mine like it was illegal for us both to occupy the same space. It took little effort for her to possess me.

Irrepressible desire led the way as I squeezed Rachel’s sexy as Hell ass and thighs. I still thought I had to be dreaming when my hands moved through her midnight black hair...that was so soft it felt like silk.

In a blur of sinful motion, Rachel put her mouth to mine and kissed me hard enough to draw blood. She then licked my blood as if it was an expensive wine.

Good, clean fun, I thought shoving Rachel up against the huge shower wall to become barbaric. And those wraith-like voices in my head wouldn’t stop tormenting me, but I didn’t try to halt them. Divine voices joined the party ordering me to reject her. So in absolute betrayal of my ever pressing conscience, I picked up Rachel.

Wrapping her slender, toned legs around my back, she kissed me with such heat I felt I’d spontaneously combust. Kashmir repeated louder, but slower...and it really seemed like the rhythm of the song pulsed to her moves. Out of nowhere, the lights in the bathroom burst, but candles flickered to cast ghoulish shadow watchers who chanted with the music, cheering me on so to speak.

My blood boiled as I penetrated her, and we soared to new heights of ecstasy. Our sex was hot, insanely hazardous—not of this world. As the water hit our skin, we immersed ourselves with each other completely blissful.

Rachel played with my wet hair and then hugged me saying, “Jake, whenever I want you…you must come to me.” Her whispering, hot upon my flesh stung a little, but I paid no mind to it because of her entrancing presence. Turning the water off, surrounded by warm, misty air, she said, “You belong to me now. I’ve decided to let you live.”

After grabbing a few towels, we moved to the bed.

I heard her loud and clear, yet I was unable to register what ghastly nightmare I had fallen into and so willingly. Hexed by Rachel’s otherworldly voice, my eyes became heavy as I lost my grip on reality. A ruckus of uninvited, warped thoughts sought refuge in my brain as angry voices became excessive.

Nevertheless, Rachel was gloriously primitive and totally unstoppable. I uttered, “Yes, I’m yours…forever. I’d do anything for you. Just ask.” Was this me? Had my wings been clipped?
Rachel smiled like she had won a great prize. And she had. Curling up beside me, she seemed to fit there.

Physically drained, we then slept.

Soon, although still exhausted, I awoke and stroked her body noticing every curve. The shape of her lips, glossy locks of black hair that smelled like Gucci Rush...a playful perfume of various floral and spicy scents, and long legs were hers. Yes, everything about Rachel screamed vixen. Thank you, Davis. Man, do I owe you something. I almost wish you could’ve been here. This was your kind of party.

Little did I know Davis was there; he hadn’t missed one calculated second.

A shining new day stole the mischievous night away, yet Rachel Darnell wasn’t for free. I paid a high price for her that night. I’d made a deal with the devil.

Catch and Release

After the sudden death of her fiancé, Gray Wheeler finds comfort in the company of his friends: lighthearted and comic Sam, hyper-responsible Dennis, and, oddly enough, his old childhood buddy Fritz, an irresponsible playboy whom she'd previously pegged as one of the least reliable people in the world. As secrets about her supposedly perfect fiancé emerge, Gray comes to see new sides of the man she thought she knew, and at the same time, finds herself drawn to the last man she ever expected to fall for.

First off: hi Nora!
Second: Good lordy! I have no idea what my firt kiss was like or who it was with. No...take that back. It's sort of coming back to me. Now, of course, I can't divulge the details, to protect the innocent you understand, but I believe it was a Spin The Bottle scenario at my house, specifically in my bedroom closet. Ah, how romantic! Not so much.
OMG! I can't believe I"m remembering this. So, briefly, the first kiss guy became my first "boyfriend" in like 6th grade. He was a real jerk and "indulged" in substances that a 6th grader should not be consuming. So, he got kicked out of middle school (he didn't get the memo that one should not bring green herbal substances into school and leave them in one's locker!) and I never spoke to him again until this past summer when he found me on Facebook. Blast you, Facebook! *fist shaking to the sky* It took a few months to get this annoying man-child to cease and desist all communications with me..
So, boys and girls..beware who kiss; you may just get stalked on FB, by phone and by text by the relentless, I want to avow my undying love to you as you were my first true love, I even remember what you wearing to the 7th grade prom, and I never stopped thinking about you almost everyday even though I'm somewhat happily married with 2 almost grown children, I have a gambling problem...guy.
Sheesh! Thanks a lot for asking the question. LOL!

Hi! I can't remember my first kiss, so it must not have been that great, huh. One of my fave big scree kisses is the upside down kiss in SpiderMan.

Joanne said...

Hi Nora!*waves* My first kiss was so long ago, I can't remember it. My favorite first kiss in a book has to be between Dragos and Pia in Thea Harrison's Dragon Bound. They both wanted each other so much, but Pia thought it was only a dream.


Mary Preston said...

Hi Nora, my first kiss was wet & horrible. I was almost scarred for life.

Julie Witt said...

It's not very romantic but my first kiss was in the 6th grade with John McGee behind the dumpsters at our Catholic school! Yeah, the nuns had a field day with me! LOL

Nora Weston said... heavens--FANTASTIC comments! :) I had to stop, dash to the kitchen, get hot tea, and then slowly enjoy all of these moments from long ago...

Dances, Spider-Man, at schools, Dragos & Pia (Dragon Bound sounds like a great book)...and then we have Julie driving the nuns nuts after being caught kissing behind dumpsters at a Catholic school!

Wow! Thanks to you all for entering. :)

Michelle Brack said...

Hi Nora!!! Thanks for the giveaway! I love this blog! Its one of my favorites!:-)

First kiss......was at my birthday party in kindergarten at the roller rink. Ellis Roberts took my hand and pulled me to the center of the rink and kissed me in front of everyone! I remember it like it was yesterday and he used to tease me about it all throughout the rest of elementary school. I have lost touch with him since then, but I would love to know what he is up to now!!!
