Excerpt:
The tempo quickened. Whether it was the music that came first or the heightened pace of their twin heartbeats, Sandy couldn’t say. All she knew was suddenly they were whirling across the dance floor, turning, twisting, groping and grabbing at each other.
Their legs stepped this way and that, weaving in and out of each other in a tango of impossible passion. Their bodies itched to touch each other, impatient of the clothes that kept skin from skin.
When their lips met the world exploded into a crescendo of stars, coupled with a clash of cymbals, as emotion and passion climaxed in the melding of their mouths.
Her tongue hungrily sought his. They clutched each other and their feet stopped moving as they gave themselves over completely to the soul-stirring magic of their kiss.
Marco’s mouth moved over hers, greedy for it, tasting and possessing her. Her hands gripped the sides of his face, holding him close. Her nose brushed against his, changing sides with it, changing back, as each sought to deepen the kiss, to make it more than any kiss could be.
At that moment the music stopped and the room burst into applause.
