Good Monday to everyone! Welcome to our new blog and our Grand Opening celebration. Please feel free to hop on into the conversations - be as nice or naughty as you wish.
I’m going to play editor here for a moment (muaha) and set a guideline for a scene - the hero’s touch must be above the waist line. Given that - What is the sexiest touch he could use to make your heroine weak in the knees?
“The rough pad of his thumb teasing her collarbone would make my heroine’s pulse spike!” - Chloe Waits - Demon of Desire and Flesh for Fantasy.
“That hero would have to be Erick McAlister, he can seduce a woman with a whisper. Standing very close but without touching, his breath can be felt on her skin. He runs his fingers across her check and down her throat sending shivers across her body as it demands more. Slowly dragging his finger tips across her collar bone, he splays his hand across her chest then lifts his fingers as they brush across a breast. Meanwhile, his lips promise sensual torture yet never touch hers, but only speak in deep tones of what his powerful body can do to hers.” – Mary Quast – Painted Soul, Tormented Soul, Lonely Soul.
“The nose. Really. It’s the sexiest thing. Imagine. Eyes connecting, bodies inches away from each other. The heat vibrating off him teasing every nerve on your body as he leans in to smell your hair. The musky scent of male fills your senses as his breath slides down your neck starting below your ear and settling on the sensitive skin of your neck. Then the first touch, just a soft caress of his nose, brushing your hair away from your neck, burrowing closer your scent, wanting to devour it. Close... the moment just before... all you feel is his closeness, his breath... the tension vibrates through the air. Yet the only thing touching you is his nose against your hair, his lips just centimeters away, full of promise.” – April Morelock
“My hero would take his tongue and lightly outline the outer shell of her ear, then leave a warm trail down her neck. When he reaches her collar bone, he would nibble it gently, ending with a brush of his lips at the base of her throat.” – Jeanne St. James – Banged up and Rip Cord
“My hero would trace his fingers lightly down her cheek, in between her breasts, and then trap her hands behind her back pressing her tightly against his chest.” - Elise Hepner – Check Out and College Trouble
“Standing behind her, his index finger slowly trailed the crook of her neck, sending uncontrollable shivers to her soul, The gentle touch was barely felt by her but her body reacted. She felt moisture building between her thighs as his finger continued its trek to her shoulder. Her body quivered as he looped around her shoulder.” – Dawne Prochilo – Cape Myrtle and On Her Own
“I have a thing for...fingers on my throat and neck. A caress or a grip.
Tender or firm. A hold so steady, the center of everything.” - Lissa Matthews – Sugar Rush
“His fingertips slowly grazed her cheek, followed by his large warm palm caressing the side of her face. His strong hand cupped, both sensual invitation and demand. She melted against him, offering her lips to his, not at all what she’d intended.” – Savannah Kougar - All Shades of Blue Paradise and Red Lioness Tamed
“There is nothing like a sensual nip to the tender flesh where the neck meets the shoulder.
Here is an excerpt of my favorite touch from Star Spangled Kiss:
Tyler opened his mouth, flicking the tip of his tongue as he painted an intricate pattern along Sophie’s shoulder and back up to her neck. When he closed his teeth on the sensitive spot, her breath whooshed out and she scissored her thighs together. Licking the place where he bit her, Tyler reveled in the way her body responded. The muscles underneath his hand flexed and bunched tight. “Don’t fight it, Sophie. Let it feel good. It’s burning now, isn’t it?” Tyler whispered next to her ear.” – Christa Paige – Star Spangled Kiss
Now your turn! Add to these or make your own touch :)

A Touch of Monday
I live in northern Michigan with my husband (poor soul), four kids and my trusty Hell Hound. I'm the author of the Bailey Khane supernatural suspense series - Apparitions, Wendigo and Rags Beneath (spring 2012). Apparitions, is currently under production as a feature film. And the Vengeance urban fantasy series - Primal, Smoke (2013) and Dead Moon (2013/14) The first novel in our Weeping Dark fantasy series, Bleeding Edge, is set for release in late 2012/early 2013. And the romantic adventure fantasy, Nymph's Lair, out this summer/fall! I love writing, plotting and creating new characters and creatures -- much to some people's dismay I'm sure :) Anyway, stick around and have some fun!
