Happy Valentine's day. To celebrate the day of love I'm taking part in Christina and Stina's blogfest.
Here's the rules:
1. Sign up on Mr. Linky, on Christina's blog, or on Stina's blog.
2. On February 14th (Valentine's Day), post an excerpt from either your own work, or another's authors work you admire (give them credit, though), beginning at 7 am EST.
*But* make sure the excerpt is no longer than 250 words (it's tiring to read long excerpts). And if there's an intro to the scene, please, keep that short too!
Oh, and *don't forgot*, this is an actual KISSING SCENE! So go crazy :D
3. To make this *really simple*, we won't require you read everyone's entry (that's exhausting)! How about just 3-5 other entries?
I decided to post an awesome kiss from Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater.
And now on to the smoochies:
All of me wanted to kiss her hard enough to make me disappear. I braced my arms on either side of her head, the door giving out a creek as I leaned against it, and I pressed my mouth against hers. She kissed me back, lips hot, tongue flicking against my teeth, hands still behind her, body still pressed against the door. Everything in me buzzed, electric, wanting to close the few centimetres of space between us.
She kissed me harder, breath huffing into my mouth, and bit my lower lip. Oh, hell, that was amazing. I growled before I could stop myself, but before I could even think to feel embarrassed, Grace had pulled her hands out from behind her and looped them around my neck, pulling me to her.

Now off to read some other kisses.
