It’s Sunday Snog time with Blissekiss, and as promised on Friday, here’s a kissing scene from Steel City Sins, the final book in the Steel City Nights trilogy. Detective Fraser has come to check on club owner Scott Beresford following an apparent road rage incident. Fraser is attracted to Scott but too afraid to do anything about it – until Scott takes charge…
I can still say no, Fraser reminded himself. Walk away now, and not risk compromising everything I’ve worked for. Yet his fingers seemed to be untying his shoelaces of their own volition, and once his feet were bare, he wiggled his toes against the luxurious white pelt of the faux bearskin rug on the floor.
Scott came to sit beside him. ‘Does that feel better?’
Fraser nodded mutely. He turned to look at Scott. Their lips were almost touching, and he made no protest when the other man brought his face closer, narrowing the tiny space between them to nothing. Fraser closed his eyes, holding his breath as he waited for him to make the next move. The kiss, when it came, was soft, and Fraser responded in tentative fashion, half-afraid that if he opened his eyes this would all prove to be a mirage. But Scott didn’t pull away, didn’t vanish, and when his tongue pressed against the seam of Fraser’s lips, he let his mouth fall open to allow entry.
The tip of Scott’s tongue met his own as the kiss deepened, and almost without being aware of it, he twined his arms around Scott’s neck and surrendered to the sweet sensations that flooded through him. Why, he wondered, had he denied himself this pleasure for so long? Though maybe he’d been destined to wait till the self-assured Scott came along and opened up his world to the beauty of being with another man.
‘I love it,’ Fraser responded enthusiastically. ‘You have such a soft mouth.’ He felt himself blushing. What a stupid thing to say, as though he’d expected kissing another man to be hard and bristly and uncomfortable.
‘God, you’re so cute when you’re embarrassed.’ Scott chuckled, clearly not at all offended by the remark. ‘But there’s no need to be so uptight. Just relax and go with what feels good …’
