Some favorite scenes

February 13, 2009

With Valentines Day tomorrow I thought I’d post a couple of my favorite scenes from Call Me Cupid. And just a heads-up, both contain some adult language. 🙂

CALL ME CUPID

She’s getting a second chance with the right man. Again. And again. And again…

On the day before her wedding, the last thing AJ needs is the ex she never truly got over showing up to complicate things. But when fate throws a curve ball and she wakes to relive the same day over and over, the only person who may know what’s going on is the one man she can never trust her heart to.

Cooper thought he wanted closure. Seeing AJ again proves he’s anything but ready to let go. With a Greek god in his corner he’s got all the time in the world to convince AJ that she still loves him—if such a bold move doesn’t push her straight out of his arms forever.

EXCERPT

In his hotel room, Cooper stared at the ceiling. “Enough is enough, Eros.”

“Funny, you don’t sound like a guy who kissed the woman he loves for the first time in over two years last night.”

Cooper whipped around, unimpressed by the sight of Eros lounging in the corner chair. “I want you to stop this.”

“Can’t.”

“You mean you won’t.”

Eros stood up. “No, I mean I can’t. It has to play itself out now.”

“What has to play out?”

“I don’t know that either. I’m not psychic.”

“So we’re just supposed to keep going through the same day over and over.”

“Pretty much.”

Cooper sighed. “And it stops when?”

Eros shrugged.

“That’s the best you can do? You started this whole thing and you’re just gonna sit back and watch the show?”

“Which reminds me, I need to pick up some of that caramel covered popcorn that Psyche likes. A good do-over day really works up her appetite.”

“So glad we could entertain you two,” Cooper ground out through his teeth.

Eros grinned.

“I’m assuming only AJ and I are aware the day is repeating itself. Any other rules I should know about?”

Eros nodded gravely. “Just keep an eye out for your other self. If the two of you meet, it will bring about an apocalypse of epic proportions.”

Cooper stared at him slack-jawed.

“Nah, I’m just fucking with ya.”


EXCERPT 2

“How many drinks have you had?”

“Not enough.” She motioned Cooper to pick up his glass.

He complied.

AJ grinned. A thickening tingle hummed in her middle as she let her gaze pause on his mouth.

She set the glass down, forgetting her urge to take a drink.

Right now there was something she hungered for far more than alcohol. And seeing as how Cooper wasn’t going to remember a thing tomorrow, she let the last of her inhibitions die a real quick death.

His eyes flared as she straddled him, the rise of the paneled wood above the booth hiding them from the bartender and anyone else who might stroll into the bar. Then again, she was pretty much past the point of caring what anyone thought.

The muscles at the back of Cooper’s neck bunched under her palm. He shifted beneath her, lifted his hips so his arousal rubbed against her sex.

Her insides clenched, and he settled his hands at her waist.

“Think this is a good idea?” He didn’t particularly sound like he was complaining.

She lowered her face to within an inch of his mouth. “Considering how the last few days have gone. I could be doing much worse.”

He pushed his hand into her hair, settling it at the nape of her neck. “We need to talk.”

“Later,” she murmured and slanted her mouth across his.

Her blood ran hot, firing her bloodstream as butterflies of the need-sex-now kind back-flipped in her stomach. AJ rocked against him, seeking the delicious friction that would feed the craving burning between her thighs.

His arms tightened around her, his chest hard against hers. Her breasts felt full and heavy, her nipples aching. The thought of his mouth and tongue wrapping around the hard points, his hands sliding over her bare skin, stroking the folds of her sex, sent her entire system into complete meltdown.

She shuddered in his embrace, the kiss deepening as their tongues tangled. Cooper moved from her mouth, down to the sensitive flesh just below her ear. He nipped it with his teeth, passed his tongue over the same spot and pulled it between his lips.

AJ caged his face in her palms, tipping his chin back even further. She needed to taste more of him.

Groaning, Cooper drew back. “We need to stop.”

“No.” She kissed him again.

“If you don’t, I’m going to take you right here.”

AJ smiled. “Good.”

He shook his head, and slammed his eyes shut when she arched against his hard length. “You’ve had a lot to drink.”

With a laugh, she trailed her hand between their bodies. “The alcohol, I can honestly say, has nothing to do with my wanting you right here, right now.”

“Then what’s it about?” He clenched his jaw as she cupped his erection through his pants.

Since he wouldn’t believe her anyway, she shrugged. “Well, if you want to know the truth. I’m reliving the same day over and over and tomorrow you won’t even remember this.” She leaned forward to capture his mouth once more.

“The same way you think I don’t remember dancing with you the other night?”

“Exactly,” she whispered.

“Or kissing you the other night?” Cooper added.

AJ’s eyes snapped open, and she froze.
