Edits, Edits, and More Edits

I've spent the last few days spending every free minute editing Rapture. It's funny (and sad, so very, very sad) just how many things I miss when reading through a novel before sending it off to the publisher, and am so grateful I have such an amazing editor. :)

Well, I'm calling it a night. Hopefully I can finish up the edits this weekend and send it back so my editor can have another look-through.

With any luck, I'll have a cover and release date to share soon!

DC Stone's Feral Craving


I'm so excited to have DC Stone on my blog today, to talk about her Paranormal Romance, Feral Craving, Book One of the Justice Demon series. After DC's interview, I'll meet with a character from her novel!

Welcome DC! Can you tell me a bit about yourself?
Well, outside of writing, the full time job and kids keep me busy. When I’m not diving into the world of romance, I’m investigating financial crimes, focusing specifically on internal measures. Yes, you caught it, I’m a corporate version of Internal Affairs. I served the United States Air Force for eight years, and learned most of what I needed investigating crimes there. It’s come in a little handy, in BOTH my jobs. ;)


Oh wow, that sounds really cool! And thank you so much for your service! So, when did you first start writing and when did you finish your first book?
Oh boy, I first started writing about four years ago this March. I fell into a group online (not fan-fiction, but close). Focusing full time on my book, which coincidentally this book was the first novel I ever wrote, it took me about eight months to finally feel as if it were ready for submission. Even then, I think I could have waited. I’ve heard many feel this way though, so I went ahead, quashed the internal critique, and hit send. 
Where do you get your ideas? 
I get my ideas based off of thoughts that come to me, or crimes I’ve read about. It’s no secret what I do, and within the thriller side of the house for me, driving a story around that crime, or within the paranormal side, developing a story off one small idea, is the most rewarding and challenging aspect of our careers. 
What sparked the idea for your novel? 
I wanted to do something different outside of vampires and werewolves. I wanted to give the readers something they hadn’t seen before. Within that, I remember reading something on the Goddess Themis, and decided to develop that idea I was previously talking about, into this series. There will eventually be four, but Bari’s book starts you from the very beginning. As we go along, the reader will pick up more on exactly what these Demons do, and exactly which side of good and evil they are on.
What are some of your favorite authors/books? 
Pamela Clare. She is phenomenal and such an inspiration. 
Which comes first: The character's story or the idea for the novel? 
The idea. While I outline the plot and unfolding of the story (the idea), the character’s background is built as I go. I may start with something small, but that background builds as I write. A lot of it comes from the character themselves, as they push their way into the story. 
What advice do you have for someone who would like to become a published author?
You see all kinds of different advice, and while I’m not a seasoned writer myself, I’ve had a few ask me this question or even call me their mentor. I have to say, it’s a little odd at times seeing that in an email or on a phone call, because I wonder what I’ve done to deserve it, but then again, it’s also something that is humbling.
The best piece of advice I can give a new writer is this: keep writing. Don’t stop just because you’ve received a rejection letter. Don’t put down that laptop just because someone says you write like crap. But keep going. You have to think of writing, and the creativity that comes with it, like a muscle. If you don’t use it, you’ll lose it.

I’ve seen this a few times in my time writing. I’ll go a week or so and haven’t written a word and when I go to pick up the laptop, my writing suffers. I now make a point to at least get a little in each day or every other day, whether it be a chapter in a novel I’m working on, a blog entry, or an interview, like this.
Outside of keeping the writing going, you also need to invest in your mind. I’m not saying spend money, but look for the articles on writing, check out a book at the library on writing, and try to get in to workshops. But inside of that, don’t take any one person’s advice as if it’s the rule. There are no rules in writing—but you do need to know what’s out there. 
If you had to go back and do it all over, is there any aspect of your novel or getting it published that you would change? 
I would join a critique group sooner than I did. No new author can learn anything more valuable anywhere else. 
What are you working on now? 
I’m actually working on the thriller side of the house right now. Empire Blue series is about a group of law enforcement officers and their quest to not only solve crimes, but also the interruption they cannot ignore—love. These books are also something that will be new to the market, something that may shock readers. The men are real, raw, and dangerous. I am typing out book 2 and working jointly on book 3 of the series. Once those two are done, the second book in the JC series will be started. 
Is anything in your book based on real life experiences or purely all imagination? 
Oh, I can tell you there are MANY personal experiences in this book. Once you read it, I’d love to see if any of the readers can guess. Make sure to stop by and let me know. 
Will you have a new book coming out soon? 
Yes, although a date hasn’t been set, I have a novelette coming out with Decadent Publishing. It’s part of their 1 Night Stand series, and I’m really excited to become an addition to this. A really great author, Jennifer Probst, also submitted to this series, and it is humbling to become a part of that team. 
That's exciting! Congrats! Now, let's move on to some fun questions: Are you a person who makes their bed in the morning, or do you not see much point? 
Oh, it drives me nuts if I don’t make the bed. I think that’s the military ingrained in me, but one thing you will NOT see in my home is hospital corners. Sorry, Drill Sergeant Espinoza, you tried. 
Be honest, how often do you wash your hair? 
Everyday. 
Do you get road rage? What pisses you off the most about other drivers? 
Ugh, I have to admit I do, but I it’s so rare, which is interesting because I live just outside of New York City, and the drivers around here are RUTHLESS. 
Which of your characters would you like to meet in person and why?
You know, this is my seventh book I’ve written, the third to be published, and I gotta say, I’d love to meet Bari. He was my first true character love and I don’t think you ever get over that. 
Hahaha, I know how that goes. Now, let's move onto the Character Interview. I' adore meeting characters from books, and DC has graciously scheduled some time for me to meet with a devastatingly handsome guy from Feral Craving!
What is your name?

*Arches brow and crosses arms* And see, here DC told me you’d be prepared. *Smirks* Damn woman, first she goes and tells a very private story and now she doesn’t even give you a heads up. *Leans forward* The name is Bari. Bari Daxter. And no, don’t say it like James Bond. I’m much tougher. 
(I can see that he's much tougher ... not that I'll tell him that.) Is there a nickname you’re known by? Do you prefer it? 
*chuckles deep* Hell, let’s see … Dick, asshole, jerk, fucker, fuck-head, Sarge, bro … I could go on if you like … 
*Waves a hand* Uh, no, hahaha. I've got you. So, do you have any scars, tattoos, piercings? What do they mean to you? 
*smirks* I have a few tats, although they only come out when he comes to visit. You wanna piss me off enough to find out? 
*Shakes head* No, no, that's okay. (I search my list of questions for something safe.) Ah, who are your parents?
*glares* Next question … 
With whom do you live? How do you feel about that person / people?
You know *rubs back of his neck* you’re almost as personal as DC. Because I promised to play nice, I’ll answer. But I swear, if you start asking about my favorite position, we’re gonna have issues.

I currently live with Mackenzie, and yes, she’s my fucking rock. And as much of a pain in the ass she was recently, I love her. I’d give my life, my soul, the last scrape of air I could find to her—to make her happy. Don’t even ask what I’d do if she was in danger. *eyes flash* I don’t think you would want to find out. 
*shakes head emphatically* No, no. I'm good. Umm, do you have any pets? 
*Grins* Of course, his name is Tyler. 
What is currently your biggest responsibility or commitment? 
*Lets out a deep breath* Well hell, you really do know how to push the deep questions don’t you? *glances up to the ceiling* Let’s see, and pardon me if I blow through all of this faster than you can keep up, but I’m still learning how it all works myself.

Apparently I’m here to keep the world level in terms of good and evil existing. *Twists lips* Hmmm, yeah I think that about sums it up. 
Who is your biggest rival or enemy? 
*Narrows eyes* You remember that parent question? *waits* 
Oookay ... moving on. What is your greatest talent? 
*slow grin* I think Mackenzie might help you with that answer.
Have you undergone any dramatic physical transformations in your life?
*chokes on drink* Have you read the fucking book? 
*coughs* It's on my to-be-read list. What? I don't get to read as much as I used to. Let's just do one more question, 'kay? How do you feel, generally, about the opposite sex?
*gives a slow, leisurely glance along the length of her body* I don’t know, how do you feel about sex?
Oh, I'm absolutely a fan of se-
Annnnd ... that's all I'm listing here, folks! I'll let you fill in how I responded. :)

A big thank you to DC Stone and Bari for meeting with me today! Check out the links below to check out more on DC!

Lorraine Nelson's Bad Boy Blake

Lorraine Nelson is here with me today to talk about her Contemporary Romantic Suspense, Bad Boy Blake. Welcome Lorraine, and thanks for meeting with me!
Can you tell me a little bit about yourself?
I'm a multi-published author and live in rural New Brunswick, on the east coast of Canada. I'm a proud mother and grandmother and enjoy spending time with my three sons and six grandchildren. When not at the computer, you can find me spending time with family, gardening, baking and, of course, reading.
What do you do when you are not writing?
Catching up on sleep!
Do you have a day job as well?
Yes, but I'm currently on medical leave and, therefore, able to write full time.
When did you first start writing and when did you finish your first book?
I've always written, but I penned my first romance in 2009. Started writing it the first week of February and finished it seven weeks later.
How did you choose the genre you write in?
I've read a lot of books over the years, my favorites being romance, family sagas, and mystery, so it seemed natural for me to try my hand at romantic suspense. 
Where do you get your ideas?
Anywhere and everywhere. Zakia and the Cowboy came about because I heard her name and knew I had to use it in a book.
What sparked the idea for your novel?
A friend and I were brainstorming ideas and came upon pole dancing. It escalated and took hold from there.
How and why did you start writing?
In October, 2008, I had to have my thumb amputated due to a bone infection. In order to increase flexibility in that hand, I began typing, soon bored with typing tests and the like. I got an idea for a story and Love on the Rocks was born.
What is your favorite part of the book?
In Bad Boy Blake, I like the fact that he was once a bad boy and turned his life around. 
What was the hardest part to write in the book?
The ending. I didn't want to let these characters go.
Is there anything you wish was different about the book?
No, it's exactly the way I envisioned it. Real life throws a lot of curve balls, and for Blake and Gina, they had to make some racy decisions, but all turned out in the end.
What are some of your favorite authors/books?
I love Danielle Steel, Nora Roberts, Mary Higgins-Clark, John Grisham, and James Patterson. I couldn't list just one book. I love them all.
If you could have dinner with one person, dead or alive, who would it be and why?
Patrick Swayze, dinner and dancing. I love his smile and his moves.
What was your life like before becoming an author?
Good but boring.
How personal is your writing?
There are parts of me or my life in every book, and I'm sure it's the same for every author. We write what we know. My love of family comes shining through in most every book I write.
What is your writing routine?
Routine? I'm supposed to have a routine? I might've had one before my youngest son moved back home with his family, but not now.
Which comes first: The character's story or the idea for the novel?
It varies.
What advice do you have for someone who would like to become a published author?
Keep learning...keep writing. With every manuscript you complete, you learn something new. Perseverance is also key.
Do you ever experience writer’s block?
Nope.
Do you work with an outline, or just write?
I start with a general GMC sheet, then just write.
Is there any particular author or book that influenced you in any way either growing up or as an adult?
Lucy Maud Montgomery and her tales Of Anne of Green Gables.
Can you tell me about your challenges in getting your first book published?
Rejections are difficult to deal with, but instead of letting them get me down, they only made me more determined to succeed. I kept writing, kept learning, and am still learning. You can't grow as a writer if you can't take honest criticism and learn from it. My debut novel, Zakia and the Cowboy was rejected 14 times before it found a home, and then I was offered 2 contracts within one week. So patience and determination played a big part.
If you had to go back and do it all over, is there any aspect of your novel or getting it published that you would change?
None that I can think of.
Have you written a book you love that you have not been able to get published?
I only have one completed manuscript left and that needs serious editing before I send it out.
What are you working on now?
I'm doing revisions on a ms that Hqn. American is interested in. Also working on Cameron's Quest, Book 5 in my Thunder Creek Ranch series with Evernight.
Can you tell us about your upcoming book?
In Cameron's Quest, he finds his lost love, a fiery, red-headed Irish lass, and gets quite a surprise in the bargain. It's a story of love and loss...and murder.
Is anything in your book based on real life experiences or purely all imagination?
This one is purely imagination, mostly Cameron's. LOL He keeps trying to tell me what to write and I don't always agree.
What was your favorite chapter (or part) to write and why?
One of the characters in this novel is psychic and I loved expanding on her visions.
Ooh, that does sound like fun. I always love digging a little deeper into characters' lives. 
How did you come up with the title?
Cameron had longed to find his lady love for years. When Zakia was written, he was away on his quest to find her.
Will you have a new book coming out soon?
Hopefully, Cameron's Quest. :)
Are there certain characters you would like to go back to, or is there a theme or idea you’d love to work with?
I love writing about cowboys and working with the manning family in Thunder Creek.
What has been the toughest criticism given to you as an author?
My early writings had a lot of head-hopping so came under some harsh criticism from my writing buddies. As a published author, one person said the book bored her and she couldn't finish it. I found that really sad because, for the most part, Zakia has received rave reviews.
What has been the best compliment?
I have a stalker. LOL A writer friend of mine recently disclosed that she's trying to emulate my dedication and determination.
Also, when readers take the time to tell me they really enjoyed one of my books, it makes my day. Especially when they ask for more. I've already had Micheal's story requested, so I guess that will be Book 6 for Thunder Creek.
Do you have any advice to give to aspiring writers?
Learn your craft. Get a critique partner or two. No one is perfect and an extra pair of eyes can catch mistakes you may overlook. Don't send out shoddy work. Make sure your writing is clear and concise and as polished as you can make it. 
That's one thing I need to get, so I completely understand what you mean. :)
Is there anything that you would like to say to your readers and fans?

Thank you for your support. I love you all!
Where do you find the most inspiration to write?
At my desk. I sit down to write and the words start flowing.
Alright, on to some fun questions.
Have you ever gone out in public with your shirt on backwards, or your slippers on, and when realizing it, just said screw it?

Yeep, once went to the store in my pjs. LOL
Do you prefer fuzzy or tube socks?
Fuzzy and warm.
Are you a person who makes their bed in the morning, or do you not see much point?
Not much point. I often nap during the day. Getting old. LOL
Be honest, how often do you wash your hair?
Once or twice a week, depending.
Do you get road rage? What pisses you off the most about other drivers?
It really irks me to have someone pass just to turn off at the next exit.
Do you go out of your way to kill bugs? Are there any that make you screech and hide?
I hate bugs. And June bugs are THE worst. I once had some stuck in my hair and they buzzed incessantly. Almost drove me nuts. Earwigs are gross, too, but at least I can step on them.
Awesome. Thanks so much for meeting with me today, Lorraine.
Below is a blurb and excerpt for Bad Boy Blake.

Blurb:

Blake Bennett is the town bad boy turned Sheriff, elected to keep the peace. When Blake first meets Gina, she's butting heads with the Mayor…over the type of dancing she teaches—pole dancing.

Gina West is a professional dancer, who retired from the stage, and moves to Westonville, NB, to start her own dance studio. But Gina is not who she claims to be, and when strange things start happening…vengeful threats and vandalism…Blake begins digging for the truth. In his role as protector, he begins to fall for Gina, but will her lies and subterfuge destroy any chance for them to be together?


Excerpt:

She stood to follow him to the door, but found herself hauled up against his muscular chest as he treated her to another scorching kiss.
“Woman, you’re driving me crazy.”
Pushing away from him she asked, “Me? What did I do?”
“Now that I know what’s hidden under that robe, my hands are itching to peel it off you again.”
“What’s stopping you?” she said as she swiftly untied the sash, shrugged the robe off her shoulders and let it drop to the floor.
Just as fast was his reaction as he picked her straight up in the air and set her down on the counter. He chuckled in response to her shriek as the smooth, icy marble met her bare backside and she arched backward, supporting her weight on her hands. Quick to take advantage, he swooped in to devour her breasts with his hands and mouth.
Her legs wrapped around him of their own volition, urging him closer, closer…and then his cell phone rang.
He ceased ministering to her body and allowed his head to rest in the valley of her newly sensitized orbs. She ran her fingers through his hair, a touch on the long side for a man in his profession, her actions serving to hold him against her.
“I have to go,” he mumbled against her skin.
“I know.”
“We’ll finish this later,” he said, promise inherent in his words.
“Okay.”
He lifted his head and covered her mouth with his, their tongues mating, creating their own magic as they thrust and parried, suckled and withdrew. His hands cupped her buttocks as he lifted her and set her on her feet.
“This is the first time in my years as Sheriff that I allowed anything or anybody to come between me and my job. What kind of spell have you cast over me?” he teased.
“Not a strong enough one, apparently.” Then seeing his confusion, she added, “You’re only human, Blake. The job isn’t the sum total of who you are as a man.”
“Maybe not, but I’ve measured myself by it for a long time.”
“Then maybe you were due for a change.” She smoothed his hair back into place with her hands.
“You could be right. We’ll discuss this later. Right now, I have to see how Rob is and if forensics found anything downstairs, then I’ll have them come up here.” His eyes traveled the length of her body as he spoke. “Better get some clothes on or I won’t be the only one who knows your secret.”
“What secret?”
“That you are indeed a true redhead.”

Truth or Dare with Michaela Rhua

Who doesn't like a good game of truth or dare? Well, today I've got Michaela Rhua here to chat about her F/F Contemporary Romance, Truth or Dare.

Welcome Michaela! Before we get started, can you tell me a little about yourself?
I live in the UK and I am a wife to a busy husband and mother to teenage children. I grew up with books being my escape, and discovered many places to go whilst reading. Writing did feature early in my life but never really went anywhere at all until I became involved with a group called UCW who have a blog called The Nuthouse Scribblers.
What do you do when you are not writing?
My family keep me busy so I am 'Mum's taxi service' often. But I try to read as much as I can or stare at the TV when my brain feels dead!
Do you have a day job as well?
I do indeed, top secret it is too! (winks)
When did you first start writing and when did you finish your first book?
I started dipping my adult toes about 18 months ago. My first book was part of an anthology called The Eclipse of the Blood Moon, published by Evernight Publishing. My story is called Gyspy Butterfly.
How did you choose the genre you write in?
I do enjoy paranormal. It allows me to create worlds and characters that you would not see in real life.
However, I enjoy dipping into other genres to see if I can create a good story. I cannot say that I am a certain genre writer yet. So I am exploring.
Where do you get your ideas?
From all around. Hearing conversations as I travel into work or seeing an image can inspire a story.
What sparked the idea for your novel?
Originally I wrote this story as a short story in an anthology of FF stories, but it was not successful so I left it. Then I looked at it again and decided that this could be a longer story, which may make it more complete. That is what I did.
What is your favorite part of the book?
The ending when all both girls get a chance to explain what has been going on and actually reveal how they feel.
What was your life like before becoming an author?
Boring!
How personal is your writing?
I suppose all writing has elements of the writer in it. But my writing is not autobiographical!
What is your writing routine?
I don't have one really! I try to grab what time I can. I wish I did have a routine!
Which comes first: The character's story or the idea for the novel?
Depends. For this one it was characters. I knew who they were and had to work out how to get them together! For Guardian Awakening, another recent release it was the story I think.
What advice do you have for someone who would like to become a published author?
Raven McAllan said 'Write as you can, not as you think you should.'
Really just be you, do not try to emulate someone else's style and read, read and read some more. Get involved with a good crit group who can push, pull and drag you in the right direction.
Do you ever experience writer’s block?
Hell yes!
Do you work with an outline, or just write?
Both. There are times I know where the story is going to go, like this book, Truth or Dare, but others where I just write, like Guardian Awakening.
Can you tell me about your challenges in getting your first book published?
Just getting a YES! It is disheartening getting a No. But a Revise and Resubmit is great, especially if there is guidance as to what to change or develop.
If you had to go back and do it all over, is there any aspect of your novel or getting it published that you would change?
Getting a faster YES because I had written such an awesome book!
Have you written a book you love that you have not been able to get published?
Interesting question…so far no. All my stories have been accepted eventually.
What are you working on now?
I have the second book in the Guardians series as a wip. I have started two others; an FF paranormal and a contemporary one. Both have just started with me typing away. So we will see what happens.
Can you tell us about your book?
Truth or Dare is about two girls who have been friends since college days. Both are lesbians but have never had a relationship with each other. You'll have to read the book to find out what happens.
Is anything in your book based on real life experiences or purely all imagination?
Imagination. 
How did you come up with the title?
Their story starts with a dare and the truth comes out at the end so the title fitted.
Will you have a new book coming out soon?
I hope so! Fingers crossed.
Are there certain characters you would like to go back to, or is there a theme or idea you’d love to work with?
I want to try to dip into different genres and see how they feel, so I would like to explore all avenues at the moment.
Is there anything that you would like to say to your readers and fans?
Constructive feedback is a great thing. Hearing about the types of stories readers want is great. Actually just hearing from readers is good.
Where do you find the most inspiration to write?
In bed. 
Hahaha, I'd ask more on that, but I'll leave that up to your readers' imaginations. Have you ever gone out in public with your shirt on backwards, or your slippers on, and when realizing it, just said screw it?
Err no not really!
Are you a person who makes their bed in the morning, or do you not see much point?
If I am in a hurry then no, I just pull the covers back and leave them there. Otherwise, yes I do tidy the bed.
Be honest, how often do you wash your hair?
Twice a week.
Do you get road rage? What pisses you off the most about other drivers?
Yes I do only when others are rude and cut you up or do a dangerous move.


Here is the blurb for you all to give you a flavour.
Leah and Jess have been friends for years, and having set up business together, they are even more aware of the need to keep things strictly professional. However all that changes after one drunken dare leads them to discover unbelievable passion. Who knew when friends become lovers the result would be so explosive and life altering, even if things seem different in the cold light of day. Can two friends face the truth and find happiness or was it a dare too far?
Ready for a little taste?
Leah sat shocked as Jess threw herself into an impromptu sexy routine. She began with seductive hip swinging. She threw her head down in front of Leah, and then quickly back so her golden locks fell messily around her face. Oh hell, she looked so hot.
Next came a slow unbuttoning of her shirt and Jess took her time in revealing a purple lace bra holding those full breasts in place.
Leah took a gulp of wine not believing her eyes.
Jess grabbed her breasts and squeezed them together as the song continued with its sensual lyrics.
 Leah licked her lips, wanting to lick those fulsome breasts.
 Jess took hold of the chair nearest to Leah. Standing on it, she began to unbuckle her belt, which she threw dramatically across the bar.
Leah's mouth went dry at the vision of pure sex on legs in front of her. Moisture leaked from her pussy, wetting her panties. She leaned forward in her chair. The movement created friction against her pussy. The vision before her combined with the spinning light, sensual music, and the friction of the chair was driving her to the brink of orgasm. 
Jess grabbed her crotch and rubbed the area, biting her lip and closing her eyes. She began to unzip her jeans slowly, not taking her eyes off Leah.
That eye-to-eye contact sent shivers of arousal through Leah, but the combination of actions caused the sexy blonde bombshell to lose her balance. Suddenly Leah saw Jess tumble. She shot out of her seat, but she was too late to catch Jess, who hit the floor.
"Oh my God. Are you okay, Jess?" Leah looked down at her friend, who lay with eyes closed and body motionless. Panic rising inside her, she looked round to see where her phone was to call an ambulance.
Suddenly the other woman erupted into a fit of giggles, much to Leah's relief.
"Seriously, Jess, I thought you hit your head or something!"  Leah moaned, letting relief wash over her now that she realized her friend wasn’t hurt. Her heartbeat was just returning to normal.
Jess held out her hand to Leah. Their fingers meshed together and Jess pull her down to the floor.
 As blue eyes held her own, Leah knew her breathing had become uneven. Was this the dream she had longed to come true for so long? The club was silent. The track had finished. The disco lights spun, a shower of multi-colored lights creating a magical space around them.
Leah lowered her head down. It was a now or never moment. She looked at her friend with her halo of golden hair spread around her. She looked like an angel on the midnight floor.
 Jess' eyes softened the closer she got. Leah's lips hovered over hers. She licked them slowly before kissing Jess passionately. She felt Jess' hands in her hair, holding their lips together. She wants this as much as I do. Leah stroked Jess' hair while her other hand went to her breast, squeezing and massaging.
Jess spread her legs under Leah and wrapped them around her, drawing her closer.
Leah ground her hips into Jess, enjoying the friction. She pinched a nipple, eliciting a groan from the woman beneath her. She moved from her lips to her neck, licking and biting the delicate skin down to her breasts. She sucked the hardened nipple though the lace and Jess' moans became louder, her hands holding the back of Leah's head to her breast.
Leah took her time enjoying the body she had longed to make love to. Her pussy was wet, but she wanted to focus on Jess' needs not her own. She went from one nipple to the other before pulling the bra up to reveal full breasts with pink, wet nipples. She squeezed the breasts together, drawing both nipples into the center, then licked a trail from one to another.
Jess squirmed under her, gasping with each lick.
Leah kissed down her flat stomach to her hips. Her zipper was halfway down so Leah unzipped it completely, revealing matching lace undies. She pulled at the jeans.
Jess sat up a little to help ease them off, removing her shirt and bra at the same time.
She lay down and Leah drank in the sight of her creamy skin, pink in places where she had sucked or gently bitten. She buried her head between Jess' legs, and she found the lace was wet with the other woman's juices. Leah sucked her clit through the lace, enjoying the taste of her.
