Excerpt from "Before the Applause", a novel by me (Judith McGuinness) due out this holiday season. Enjoy!
Turning on the barstool, Leticia parted her knees so that Johnny could move closer. To her delight, he did so without a moment of hesitation.
“Hey yourself,” she purred as she leaned back on her elbows against the bar.
The move thrust her curvaceous breasts upward. Johnny’s attention immediately fixated on the rise and fall of the creamy flesh above the neckline of her dress. He gave a gentle tug on her waist, pulling her core against his hips, and leaned forward to bring his face close to hers.
As she ran her tongue over her lips to moisten them in anticipation of a kiss, Johnny closed his eyes. He breathed in the scent of her perfume before pressing his mouth to those plump, oh so inviting lips. The taste of whiskey and of Leticia made his heart beat faster and his body immediately began to harden.
He worked his tongue between her lips so that he could explore her mouth. The sensation of his tongue gliding sensually over and around hers sent her head spinning. She would never get tired of his insanely good kisses.
Ignoring the fact that they were in a public place, Leticia reached down so that she could touch what she wanted most. She found him nearly fully erect and straining against the confines of his trousers.
He chuckled against her mouth. “This may be New Orleans, bebe, but we need a more private venue if we’re going to continue down this path.”
It was her turn to laugh. “Then what are we still doing here?” she cooed.
