I'm excited because my Bliss Entangled Publishing sister, Robin Bielman, and I have a little "Bliss Kiss Off" giveaway going on this week!
Robin has a new Bliss romance out called Kissing the Maid of Honor and since, well, my Bliss romance is called Kissing Kendall, we decided to combine KISSING forces—romance author style!
Here's an example on this from my book, Kissing Kendall:
She met his smoky gaze and a little traitorous flutter of anticipation settled in her stomach. “Brad—”
Then there was no more anticipation. No more waiting.
She wasn’t sure who kissed whom first—their lips seemed to have met in one fluid motion—and now she clung to him, kissing him with all the demand his lips had for hers.
Brad’s hands traveled up and got caught in the waves of her hair, holding her close as he continued to explore every inch of her mouth. The urgency of his lips overwhelmed her. She had never felt so wanted or so thoroughly kissed before in her life, and she gave herself freely to his passion. It had been so long since she’d felt this way. She had no idea what Brad was thinking, but she shocked herself at her own eager response to him.
4) The Tentative Kiss: This kiss is especially sweet and seen a lot between your characters if they're friends first or sometimes if one of your characters is emotionally scarred, insecure, or maybe young and inexperienced. It's brief but can still make an impact with a reader.
His brilliant green eyes didn’t just look at her, they seemed to look inside her—a gaze that touched her heart and claimed every piece of it. She stared back for achingly long seconds, wondering what he was thinking before she glanced at his mouth. It was so very, very close. All she had to do was lift slightly and his lips would be hers again.
“Do it,” she whispered.
How about you? Do you have a type of kiss to add to my list?
What's your favorite type of kiss to see between romance characters?
And now for something REALLY fun!
Robin and I have pitted two of our favorite ON-SCREEN KISSES against one another here. Robin thinks Luke and Lorelai from The Gilmore Girls have it going on, while I'm all about Jim and Pam from The Office!
Help us decide once and for all and cast your VOTE!
