Saturday Sexcerpt – Riverswept by Anneka Ever


When I asked Anneka if she had a sexy excerpt to share she answered “Of course.”  Below is  from her novel “Riverswept”. 

His eyes gleamed in the faint light of the dash. She thought of the wolves watching them from the dark and then she thought of the unknown person trying to get in her house. She started to shake. Grasping the door handle, she said, “Why don’t you come inside for a while?”

He followed her to the cottage but stood at the entrance. “I don’t want to get your floor wet. I’m dripping.”

Lightning flashed in the patch of sky framed by the door, creating an amethyst corona behind him. She grabbed the front of his shirt and pulled him inside. He didn’t even give her time to shut the door before he embraced her. She touched her lips to the raindrops on his face and then pulled back to see his reaction. He stared at her with an intense expression. His eyes glinted like gold.

He lifted her arms and placed them around his neck. He wrapped his arms around her waist. A tic pulsed in the hollow of his throat. She laid her head against his chest and listened to his heart thump. Her brain screamed Danger! Danger! Danger! Her body ignored her brain.

She slid her hands under his damp shirt. She explored the topography of his chest. Moving her arms around him, she ran her fingers down his spine. She found two dimples in his lower back. Her thumbs fit there, as if his body had been designed to complement hers. She sighed. His mouth turned up just enough to let his dimple slip. He kissed her gently, his lips pressed against hers in a simple buss. The restraint in that kiss kindled such a fire inside Molly that she knew hell couldn’t be as hot as she was at that moment.

She pulled away from him and stumbled into the kitchen. Following her, he lifted her onto the counter. Sliding the sundress up to the top of her thighs, he placed his hands on her knees, pulled them apart, and stepped into the open space. Moaning, she wrapped her legs around him. Grasping his T-shirt, she peeled it off him and tossed it onto the floor. She grazed his nipple with her tongue; he tasted salty-sweet.

He lifted her into his arms and carried her to the bedroom. He leaned her back on the mattress and slid the dress down her body. Suddenly timid, she crossed her arms over her chest and closed her eyes.

Enveloping her body with his, he kissed her eyelids. “Look at me.” She turned her head. He clasped her chin and dragged her face back to his. “Please. Look at me.”

She opened her eyes. His golden hair hung around his face; his amber eyes narrowed with desire. Molly thought him splendid as the sun, her very own Helios.

Whispering to him in a language she did not know, she wrapped her arms around him and pulled him into her. They were together forever, or so it seemed during those sweet, aching moments. He was unselfish and uninhibited and skilled beyond her experience.

When they finished, they both fell back on the bed in a knot. His restless hands continued to explore her until he fell asleep. She lay awake a long time listening to the rain on the roof. She wondered if Alice had felt this bewildered when she fell down the rabbit hole.

Anneka Ever Head Shot (1)

Please welcome fellow LSB author Anneka Ever to the Clog Blog!  Woot! Woot! Let’s get down to it, shall we?

Q: What books have most influenced your life most?

The Lord of the Rings is my favorite book. I’ve read it more than 50 times. The works of Ray Bradbury, Edgar Allan Poe, and Stephen King. It’s strange that I ended up writing romance.

Q:  If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor?

Rita Sims Quillen (author of Her Secret Dream, Counting the Sums, and Hiding Ezra) has been my teacher and cheerleader. She’s very generous with her time and wisdom.

Q: Do you have a specific writing style?

I try to write with clarity and beautiful language. I hope that comes through in my work.

Q: What inspired you to write Riverswept?

I wanted to write a love letter to the mountains of Virginia. The final story turned out completely different from the first draft, but my love for the mountains remains evident throughout Riverswept.

Q: How much research did you conduct for Riverswept  and what was the most interesting thing you did while conducting your research?

Most of the research I conducted concerned the biodiversity of the Clinch River and the endangered species that call it home. My other research was hands-on activities, such as kayaking down the river. In Riverswept, the Clinch River became the Burns River.

Q: What was the most difficult aspect of writing Riverswept?

Revisions. Writing the first draft was fun but revising seemed more like work.

Q: What are your current projects?

Right now I’m working on another romance set in the fictional town of Burns, the town where Riverswept takes place. My Riverswept couple make a brief cameo appearance in this new book, but its main focus is a new couple.

Q:  Where can readers find you on the World Wide Web?
