This is my twenty-third week on this blog hop. Just a little heads up. I might not be around much until mid-July. I have a number of events, graduations, baby showers, etc. taking up a lot of me time, on top of getting my latest edit of Resistant ready to go back to my editor. We changed a large chunk of the last hundred pages, so I am definitely going to have to send it back to editing. This ending is much better than the last. I’m told that I should have a cover for this novel next month, so I guess I should get to writing a blurb.
I’m continuing this week with an excerpt from my current romance WIP, Resistant. Resistant is a romance set in the middle of the zombie apocalypse. Everything is still moving in a timely manner, which means that I’m still looking for the novel to go on sale in August or September.
Anyway, on to the excerpt. This scene is a continuation from my last post. This one is a bit short and mostly just filler to us from point A to point B, but I promise next weeks will be longer and much more satisfying. I hope you enjoy it. J
Because the day after our first time having sex was a holiday, we had the perfect excuse to stay in bed pleasuring each other some more. By the time we exited our sleeping area the following afternoon for supper and celebration, the entire camp was abuzz about us. Apparently, several people had approached our sleeping area at various times throughout the day to ask a question or request help with something, but every time they did, they heard us making love and opted out of disturbing us. I was, of course, highly embarrassed, but Daniel wasn’t fazed. He seemed pleased that everyone knew he had finally taken me.
To him, life was the same except that now everyone knew for certain I was his, and he had no problems showing his affection in public. He was always touching me, holding my hand, hugging me to him, lightly kissing my head, my temple, my lips. When he was sure no one was looking, he would cop a feel or press his erection into my ass. Some women might have found this annoying or his actions as being overly possessive, but I loved knowing how much and how often he wanted me.
We had wanted each other for so long that we had too much pent up sexual tension. We had so much, in fact, that we couldn’t help but take advantage of every moment alone or every bit of down time we could get in the days and weeks that followed. I stayed home more often, opting for patrol duty inside the store so that we would be able to have similar shift schedules more often and he opted to run more missions with me. We took advantage of empty homes, department stores, gas stations—you name it we had sex in, on, under it. I never thought I could come that many times in one day, and be so turned on so often. The novelty of it would wear off soon, I knew, but I enjoyed every moment of it. We were like teenagers doing it for the first time.
There were times when people accused us of letting our relationship get in the way of our job, mostly this was by people who were jealous of us. Some complained that we had stayed gone too long on a run. I’m not saying they were wrong but things weren’t that out of hand. We got home before nightfall most nights with everything we could reasonably get. We didn’t ask for time off, didn’t show up to our jobs late, maybe a little tired, but not late. Those who knew and loved us told us not to worry about anything when I brought it up to them.
During all of that, I didn’t think I could be happier. I was wrong.
