Here's another little snippet from the paranormal erotic short I released through Wild Horse Press: Liquid Heat series last October. Enjoy!
Kara went straight from their en-suite bathroom down to her basement office, to avoid running into Adam. Her cheeks flamed red with the memory of how she behaved. Perhaps it was the thunderstorm, she thought. Even now, as the distant rumbles made her shake, she could feel the silk of her robe and nightie slide against her skin in ways she wasn't accustomed to noticing.
A part of her wanted to just sleep and forget all about today, but she knew she was too wound up for that.
Instead, running a thick towel over her long chestnut hair, she sat at her desk, where her bag from the day waited to be unpacked and repacked for tomorrow. Flipping on her computer and her desk lamp, Kara carefully unearthed the chamois-enrobed statue. Perhaps some time spent cleaning and Googling the object would put her mind back where it should be.
Peeling back the layers of the thick yellow cloth, she shuddered as she revealed once more the intensely male form of the fallen angel... or demon, she corrected, mentally. The beautiful face of the creature was too darkly forceful to retain any angel.
Re-crossing her legs restlessly, she took in the detailed features of the creature, turning him over to run the corner of the cloth down the muscular back and down to the cleft of his buttocks.
Spritzing him with gentle cleanser, she carefully, lovingly, wiped away decades of grime, bringing a glowing sheen to the pale, perfect skin.
Skin? She laughed at her folly. Stone. Nothing more.
Somewhere in her head, she heard a derisive chuckle, but she wasn't sure from whom it came - herself, at her recent odd behavior, or from somewhere deep inside.
