"Jesus—" Luke gulped for air, his cock aching in the confines of his ribbed boxer briefs. He hadn’t meant this to happen. He’d only wanted to know her name, to get her damned phone number.
He’d say she was heaven-sent but the black leather told him she’d been sent from somewhere else.
The miniskirt hugged every curve, and he followed the line of an athletic thigh with an observant eye. She was toned and trim. His fingers itched to touch her. She made him want to be a very, very bad boy.
Cleo pulled him into the foyer and backed him into the wall, trying to get control. Their eyes locked and a blast of heat exploded between them like a jagged bolt of lightning streaking across a darkened sky.
The power created by her reaction almost visceral, Cleo fisted his button-down shirt and pulled him in for another mouthful. She took, feasting upon him, slapping at the up button for the elevator. He was going straight to hell for this, he thought.
She tugged at his shirt, trying to pull him against her but not able to get close enough.
"Christ," Luke groaned as if in pain, his fingers splayed over her waist. Like the rising sun and the effect of the moon on the crashing tide, he had no control over what was to transpire.
"Tell me your name," Luke demanded as he tore his mouth from hers. He pulled her against him, and kissed her, his lips brushing hers. He tried to retain a modicum of self-control. He couldn’t stop, wouldn’t stop if he had to.
The need, the drive to have her was almost physically painful. It was torture like no man had ever endured.
The tension in his body, his cock throbbing against her slightly rounded abdomen and the feel of her breasts crushed against his chest made him want to shove her into the wall and impale her with his cock.
He wanted to know her name, to know if she liked it fast or slow, to know if she had a secret spot that drove her crazy, to know if she liked to make love from behind. He had the deepest desire to know her in every way. A desire so powerful that it took over all reason.
Cleo opened her mouth and swallowed his tongue. She teased with tiny flicks and tasted, sucking it. She took, her mouth moving in motion with her hips as she ground against him.

"Oh God." Luke was helpless. He cupped her beautiful ass, knowing nothing else but that he had to taste her. Had to feel her, had to be inside her.
This woman was merciless. It was a full-on brutal assault.

Viciously and without remorse, Cleo worked her tongue against his. She probed his mouth. Jaw opening and closing as she drank him in. She nearly swallowed him whole.
He might have caught her by surprise when he’d kissed her at the door but she’d come at him with the vengeance of a woman desperate to even the odds.
The elevator doors opened with the chime of a bell and Cleo shoved him inside.
She wasn’t gentle with him, but there was nothing gentle about the way either of them was feeling now. There was an unfathomable storm brewing inside him. Primitive emotions battled with common sense and generated a surge of fiery heat that overrode all of his logic and common sense.
His body sizzled, a thousand erotic fingers moving over his flesh. He kissed her, his tongue probing deeply. He wanted to open her up and make her pussy throb. Lips and mouths, hot and wet, their tongues driving against each other in a battle for control.
Cleo pulled back and, as if in physical pain from their separation, Luke groaned. She’d stirred a hunger within him that was so primal he’d never known it had existed.
It was instinctive, desperate, as if he had no choice but to be inside her and she had no choice but to take him there.
He touched his hand to her face, rubbing his thumb over her lips, swollen from being so thoroughly kissed. He realized for the first time that there was someone else in the elevator with them.
Cleo turned and smiled at the building’s newest uptight pansy-assed owner, who must’ve just arrived home and picked up his mail at the basement level. He’d recently purchased the building and had moved into the penthouse on the top floor.
Penthouse. Pretty much summed it up.

"Hey," Cleo said as nonchalantly as possible, giving him a nod. This was her one chance to cool off, she thought, adjusting her clothing. The thought was fleeting, because she backed up against Luke’s hips and the moment his shaft met her ass, she got a taste of what was to come.
Lukas Lace was packing.
It felt like he had a .50 caliber Desert Eagle in his pants and that’s a mighty big weapon.
"Good day," Cleo’s neighbor mumbled with a stuffy nod. He worked the collar of his starched shirt nervously, loosening his tie and fidgeting.
"Roger?" Luke did a double take. "How the hell’ve you been?"

That was an excellent excerpt Taylor. I really liked it!

Are you a writer/reader or both?

I'm a reader. Maybe someday I'll try my hand at writing, but for now I'll just read the wonderful stories that you authors put out. :biggrin:

Nice to meet you and congratulations on your release. Let's hope you have many more to come and successful sales.

Hi everyone,

I'm now working on my second book for Ellroa's Cave. The working title is Virgin Royal' and I am about halfway thorugh the story now. I also have several other manuscripts that I will re-work for EC because I love the passion between two characters and feel that EC allows their love stories to be fully explored.

Thanks for the support and the wondeful comments.

You guys Rock.


November 15th, 2007, 09:41 PM
That sounds great Taylor! Make sure to let us know when you finish it and are allowed to post a little bit about it. :biggrin:

November 15th, 2007, 10:11 PM
:welcome:Hey Taylor...goodness...hehehe...that was uh hmmm.:devil:...sizzling stuff. Weldone!!

November 16th, 2007, 01:20 PM
Irish and Ti3, thanks for the support and compliments! I loved writing Leather and Lace and those two characters took over, let me tell you! Hippy

It's been so long since I began this second book that I'm having a little trouble getting back into the, umm, flow of things, so to speak. Hopefully I can get back on track and get this thing finished. I guess they call that the sagging middle, etc.

A friend told me that if you hit the sagging middle and all else fails, burn something down. I guess you can do that by literally burning something down or just by having a scortching hot sex scene! Hopefully either will work.

Talk to you later.

It's been a long time since I've visited, but I wanted to share my great news with everyone.

I finished the 'Candy' book "Body Candy" and submitted it to my editor at Ellora's Cave. It was written as a 'Quickie' and the 'Candy' books are slated for February 09 release, if it's contracted (fingers crossed, here).

I've been recovering from a spinal fracture due to a horseback riding accident, and have been flat on my back for a bit now, but getting "Body Candy" done will hopefully help my momentum and now I can get back to my other W.I.P'S!

If you visit www.taylortryst.com (http://www.taylortryst.com) you can read an adult rated excerpt, as well as chapter one of Leather and Lace. I have updated my website with personal pics as well as info on my current W.I.P'S and will let everyone know if "Body Candy" hits my editor's sweet tooth!

Thanks everyone and have a wonderful fall filled with hot reads!

Awesome Taylor!! Cheerleader

So how's your back now?

September 3rd, 2008, 06:56 PM
Hey Irish,

Thanks for asking. I was injured on July 9th so it's not quite been 2 months and the pain is still pretty bad. I spent 5 days in the hospital, 2 unable to even stand up.

I can get around pretty well now, but am in pain most of the time. Writing has been tricky, I can only sit, lay, or re-position my body so many ways. Thank God I have a laptop!

I just picked up my CT scan report and I actually have one vertebra sitting on the other, so I was like, well, duh. No wonder I am in pain... surgery may be an eventual possibility, but that depends upon insurance....sigh

Anyway, probably more than you wanted to know... lol

Completing 'Body Candy' really helped me regain some writing momentum, so hopefully I can finish a few more of these pesky W.I.P'S and submit away!

Again, thanks for asking,

September 3rd, 2008, 07:03 PM
Not too much info at all. I'm used to hearing because of two things... A) my mom's a nurse and B) I've worked in the medical field before. I know a lot. LOL!

I hope you're able to get something done for your back. It sucks not to be able to do anything and only move certain ways. You are lucky that you have your laptop. I hope your back feels better soon!

September 4th, 2008, 04:01 AM
it sounds similar to the smurfs problem, he crushed 4 disks in the bottom of his back but he has had a long time to learn how to work around it
