WHY VAMPIRES ARE SEXY!
Welcome to Part 5 of Arial Burnz’s guest blog post on the Scorcher Blog Tour – Week 1! (If this is your first stop, you’ll want to go back to Part 1.) Thanks so much for having me on your blog, AJ!!
Continuing with our topic Why Vampires Are Sexy: We left off with a teaser into an excerpt from my novel MIDNIGHT CONQUEST where Broderick struggles to keep the Hunger under control:
Broderick threaded his fingers into the thickness of Davina’s tawny tresses and he pulled her harder against him, groaning into her mouth. His lips devoured her, touching her eyelids, her cheeks, her nose, claiming her lips once more and capturing the taste of her at last. Davina’s yearning merged with his growing hunger to absorb her, body and soul. His mouth traveled to her throat, his tongue dancing a hot, wet trail across her skin. They seemed to cling to each other in a desperate attempt to become one in their union, leaving Broderick breathless.
Stopping for the moment, he broke from their kiss and struggled to maintain some control over his senses. The rose oil from her heated skin mixed with the scent of her blood, and his mind swirled. Opening his eyes, he searched to stave off the spell engulfing him, fighting off the dizzying effect.
Broderick’s breathing, ragged and trembling, screamed a warning. He closed his eyes and fell into another ardent kiss, but more demanding, his body tense, a new and powerful yearning coursing through him. Davina’s excitement, mixed with her fear, titillated his senses, making it near impossible to pull away. Her fear ignited the Hunger hiding behind his passion, and the familiar and deadly pain shot across his gums, his mouth watering, his tongue aching to sample the sweetness her blood promised. A low, guttural growl rumbled from Broderick’s chest as he wrestled to keep himself from giving in, and with a sudden force, he shoved away from her.
Since that was such a long excerpt compared to the other, we’ll move on to the next blog to discuss the excerpt. Before you do, let’s check in and give a purpose to your post. Continuing to excite the six senses as it pertains to vampires…we’ll explore the sense of hearing in this post.
What do YOU find hot about what you HEAR regarding vampires? Remember, there’s the supernatural heightening of senses, so my vampires hear the flutter of their victim’s heart beat, or the rush of blood through their veins. In the intimate setting of the crimson kiss, breaths grow shallow, moans escape in the euphoria of feeding. How do you hear the intimacy of vampires?
