Excerpt from The Surrogate’s Secret:

 
“Sheri, I want to start off our life here in Chile the way we mean to go on. Tonight, may we be together as husband and wife?” Miguel's hand reached out, and his fingers slid through the soft tangle of curls swirling over her shoulders.

She stood up and turned her back to him, but he soon followed. He loomed over and his arms gently scooped her to him, his breath on her neck creating an army of goose bumps. Lips, soft and warm, moist and hot kissed their way from her ear, down her throat to her neck. Meanwhile, his nimble fingers worked at the collar of her blouse to give him access to more of her delighted skin.

Leaning back for him to take her weight became a necessity as her knees lost their power to hold her upright. With a snarl, he whipped her around and the onslaught of his mouth devouring hers became more important than breathing.

The handsome devil kissed the way every woman dreams of being kissed. He sucked and licked and entwined her tongue with his, inviting her to perform with him. How could she resist? Never in her life had she experienced heat building from normal to boil-over in seconds. Every nerve in her body, starting from her head to her to stomach, mostly between her legs, screamed ‘hallelujah’! 

Miguel's arm encircling her waist snuggled her close, and his hand on her bottom angled her directly to where his hardened body moved to explore her contours. At that moment, she could have climbed him like a monkey scaling a tree. Flushed and palpitating, every female part of her anatomy begged for more. It must have been the whimpering moans that stopped his play. She’d never know.

He framed her face, and she felt his hands tremble. When he went to speak, he started once, but then had to clear his throat so his initial whispering became clear. “I can’t stay with you right now, Sheri.”

The way he said her name was foreplay in itself.

“Juan is waiting to take me to the office. But, mi esposa, rest this afternoon, for tonight we will be very busy.” With a final kiss on her forehead, he left the room, a distinct shuffle noticeable.

She hugged herself and grinned. A firm believer in equality of the sexes, Sheri decided, since she’d be suffering from unrelieved horniness, so should he. 

Then her mood darkened. Once again, she’d missed the opportunity to come clean. The man hadn’t even given her a chance to talk, not that she could have said anything with her eyelashes glued to her cheek and her mouth devoid of any liquid whatsoever.

    Well it definitely didn't stink. It was intense and also a tad bit funny. The whole monkey climbing the tree was delightfully unexpected and made me snort my coffee.
