About CD Reiss

CD Reiss is a New York Times bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn’t pick up she’s at the well hauling buckets.

Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master’s degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels.

She’s frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn’t ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood.

If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.

Excerpt

Jacob

 

“And marriage? What does Sage Cross think about marriage?”

She sighed, placing her head back on my chest. “I wanted it all as a kid¾the groom, the dress, the whole shebang. After that night, things changed.” She shrugged. “I didn’t believe in happiness. The thought of marrying someone my father forced upon me repulsed me. But I can see myself marrying someone I love…I…what about you?” She angled her head up, waiting for my response.

She’s so beautiful.

“I didn’t see myself ever settling down before…”

“Before what?” she interrupted.

“Before you, silly.” I teased her, planting a kiss on her lips sideways. She turned around so fast and pinned me down, wrapping her arms around my neck. My hands tried to explore underneath her spandex tights, hoping for a squeeze as I kissed her ravenously, our need for each other insatiable. She moaned into my mouth, waking my dick the fuck up.

She broke our kiss, arms tied around my neck. “You really mean it?”

“Mean what? That I see myself getting down on one knee for you? That I want you to be my wife? That sometimes I see a little kid or two running around in my thoughts?”

She smiled and looked away. And my world ended. Seeing Sage smile was such a rare thing my heart melted every time she did.

What is it about her smile?

“You’re all I see in my future, too. Except for the kid. I’m still young and I want to enjoy you first.”

I agreed with her.

“I have a question, but you don’t have to answer,” she added quickly, pausing before continuing. “Have you ever looked for your father? Or wanted to?”

            I shook my head. “No. I used to hate him, ‘specially when mom died. I don’t anymore. I’m…indifferent to him. I don’t want or need him in my life. I’m past that.”

Sexy Couple In Bedroom

 

Excerpt:

Vivian wiggled into the most romantic corner booth she could wheedle and ordered a sparkling water.  No point enjoying wine until she knew she’d enjoy the evening, too.

She pulled out her cellphone.  No cancellation message.

That was a good sign, wasn’t it?

Half the time, Vivian felt like her dreams were a tease.  All too often she got within kissing distance of her goal, and poof, there it went.  No big payoff, no awesome climax, nothing.

Because, why?  Because she always blew it.

She shouldn’t have told him her name.

She should have teased instead, said she’d tell him tonight.

Maybe she shouldn’t have let him in on the what she made at The Sweet Spot, either.  Sure, a lot of guys saw that as a turn on, but there were just as many who subscribed to the prude theory.  Like her brother.

And he was Mike’s friend.

Then again, so was Lenny.

Before she’d finished her confused sigh, Zane walked in. And all of her doubts took a backseat to the sight of how gorgeous the man was.  Vivian sat up a little straighter.  Shoulders back, chin high and chest probably jiggling because her heart was beating so fast, she smiled and sent him a little wave.

“Vivian,” he greeted as he joined her.

“Zane.”

“So you’re Mike’s little sister, hmm?”

“Ahh, so the dare worked.”  Vivian laughed.  “How many times did you consider bailing?”

“Bailing?  I’ll have you know I’m trained to confront conflicts of all shape and size.  I fearlessly face down explosives, disarm bombs and disable volatile chemicals. Sometimes all three before breakfast.”

“Tell me more.”  Delighted, Vivian put on a wide eyed look of fascination, even adding a little eyelash flutter for good measure.

“I train with the best.  I’m one of the elite.  There’s no challenge devised that I won’t face.”  He leaned in, his smile almost hypnotic as he teased.  “Baby, I never bail.”

“I can’t tell you how glad I am to hear that,” Vivian declared as the waiter brought Zane a beer and refilled her water.

“But, here’s the thing—” he started to say as soon as the waiter left.

“No,” she moaned.  “Not the thing.”

There was only one thing of Zane’s that she wanted to hear about.

“Here’s the thing,” Zane continued, laughing.  “Some guys have rules about buds dating their sisters.  Sisters, cousins, moms.  Guys get weird thinking the women in their lives have sex.  They get even weirder when they know the guy putting the moves on that sex.”

Lips pursed, Vivian propped her elbow on the table, rested her chin on her fist and fluttered her lashes.

“Aren’t you taking a leap there, assuming we’d definitely be having sex?”

Zane blinked, looked horrified for one second, then shook his head.

“I’m speaking generally, not specifically.”  Then he narrowed his eyes.  “Are you saying that you see this thing between us as platonic?”

“Of course not.  I plan on having a great deal of sex with you,” she purred.  “A mind-blowing amount, as a matter of fact.”

“Mind blowing, hmm?”

“Indeed.”  She reached out with her free hand to trail her fingers over the back of his knee.  Up his thigh, then back down again.  Oh, baby, even through denim, his muscles were rigidly impressive.

He clamped his hand down, locking hers down on his thigh.

“Only one thing.”

“Only one?”

“Only one.”  Zane entwined his fingers through hers.  “Your brother.”

“Oh, please,” she objected.  “Like you’re afraid of my brother?  The man wears argyle socks and loafers, for crying out loud.”

Zane’s snicker escaped before he could stop it, then he shook his head.  “Mike’s footwear isn’t the issue. The fact that you’re his little sister is the issue.”

Vivian debated for a handful of approaches.

She could keep blathering about her brother.  That’d put an end to either of their interest in anything after a while.  Mike was like a sedative.

She could offer him an easy out, a simple excuse to end the evening so he wasn’t in danger of violating his bro code.  Given there was a lifelong friendship involved, that’d be the nicest thing to do.

She could seduce Zane into forgetting about the bro code, which would ensure her one night of dreams-come-true-ecstasy.

Or she could do the unthinkable.

Vivian took a deep breath, her eyes locked on Zane’s face.  He had such a sweet smile and sexy eyes.  And there were dreams at stake here, dammit.

So she reached into her bag to do the unthinkable.

“What are you doing?”

She finished dialing her brother’s number.

“Getting you a bro code clearance.”

“Mike,” she said the minute he picked up.  “Let’s play what if. What if I have the hots for one of your friends?  What if this friend wants to make a move but he’s worried about upsetting you, so I want to make the move instead?  What would your feelings be on that?”

“He’s afraid of me?” Mike laughed.  “Wish him luck.”

“Okey dokey,” she agreed, hanging up and giving Zane her most seductive smile.

Zane gave her a long look, the kind that made her want to squirm in her seat and breathe a little heavier.

Then he smiled.

“You know he thinks you’re referring to Lenny, don’t you?”

Vivian ran her tongue over her lower lip and leaned into the table. Just enough to highlight her cleavage. She waited until Zane’s gaze returned to her eyes before giving a delicate little shrug.

“Can I help it if my brother is an idiot?”

STEAMY FIRST KISSES


I’ve joined with Book Boyfriends Cafe for a weekly blog hop. This week’s theme: Post a scene of a Hot Kiss between your hero and heroine. 

This scene is from book #1 in my Wounded Hearts series, Tidal Falls.

JacquieBiggar_TidalFalls_HR

Her long legs dangled over the edge of the old countertop. Mouth-watering breasts stretched her sunny t-shirt right at eye level. The more he saw of her, the more she fascinated him.

Tracing a slow path up her slender throat, he noticed her pulse fluttering just under her skin. Zeroing in on her plump lips, he groaned under his breath as the pink of her tongue flicked out to moisten them. A banquet for him to savor. Just a little.

“Sara—”

“Look, I’m fine, Jessica can…” She sputtered to a nervous halt as he stepped forward and nudged her legs apart with his hips.

His jeans scraped her bare skin, and he caught the awareness in her expressive eyes. At least he wasn’t alone in this. Cradling her hips on the cool countertop, he leaned in, giving her ample time to back away. A few light sips, that’s all he needed. His heart pounded so hard it threatened to leave his chest. The plump softness invited him to taste, to feast. His tongue flicked out teasing her, until with a soft sigh, she opened to him. Ravenous now, he sank deep, indulging in the honey and cinnamon taste of her.

Sweet, so sweet.

He forced himself to stop, and leaning back a little, cupped her jaw. His thumb rasped back and forth over her satiny skin, waiting for her beautiful eyes to slide open. And yes, there it was. The same want and confusion and mistrust plaguing him, filled the amber depths.

“Sara.” Her name a sigh, he moved in just as she backed away, clunking her head against the cupboard door behind her.

“Stop, Nick—I can’t do this. I’m sorry, I just can’t.” Her gaze avoided him, a shaky hand rubbing the sore spot on the back of her head.

Running slightly unsteady hands of his own through his mussed hair, he stepped back with a wry grimace, shifting to find some relief from the pressure behind his zipper. They had to quit meeting like this, she was going to end up with a concussion. Her arms were crossed over her chest while she contemplated the wall over his shoulder. She refused to look him in the eye, so he attempted some damage control. “Look, I’m sorry. I had no business kissing you like that.”

“No, you didn’t”

“Mom, which towels should I grab?” Jess yelled from down the hall, and he cursed. He’d been so caught up in Sara he’d forgotten the kid was even there.

“They’re under the sink.” She called out to her daughter, still not looking at him. “Maybe this isn’t a good idea,” she murmured. “You should go. I’m sure Tess can find someone else to finish the repairs.”

He was about to let her know what he thought of that idea when Jessica came racing back into the kitchen, a towel trailing on the floor behind her.

“Mom, how could you say that? Nick’s doing a great job.”

After a very pregnant pause, which had him almost shuffling his feet like an errant child, she reluctantly agreed. “Yes, he is. Fine, you can stay. Unless you’d rather not?” It was more than obvious she hoped he’d turn her down.

He wanted to. Nearly as much as he wanted to go back to her vulnerable mouth and finish what they’d started. The damn woman drove him crazy.

I think Nick is in for a tough time, don’t you? 🙂
