18 and Over Giveaway Hop!

Have you ever read a part in a novel where the heat around you sizzles with ecstatic energy? Where your pulse races each time the hero tells the heroine "I love you" and vice versa? Do you ever keep reading a book until you reach the love scene? I do.
What makes a love scene tantalizing? How do you keep the reader's interest?
Here are 5 tips on making each page delicious:
1) Include all five senses.
2) Use each word to the greatest effect.
3) Limit dialogue usage.
4) Up the action sequence.
5) Don't scrimp on description.

Here is a sizzling excerpt from To Love An Irishman:
They ignored the chill of the barn as they explored each other. The hay under their bodies provided a fine mattress.

Aveline kept her hands busy while he left a warm, moist trail down her chest, wetting her breasts.  Ciarán's mouth on her sensitive flesh made her toes tingle. Apprehension hadn’t affected her until now. What if she did something wrong?

She ran her hands over his shoulders, wrapping her arms around to touch his back. A burgeoning desire overwhelmed her core. The throbbing sensation made her writhe with eagerness. He continued to nibble a protruding nipple, flicking his tongue back and forth, while using his forefinger to caress the other. The fingers on his other hand ran along her torso until they stopped on the inside of her thigh.

How did one handle such an ocean of feelings?

He hesitated.

“Continue, Ciarán, please.” Her heart raced.

He grinned and kissed her, his hand moving between her legs. As he caressed her down there, she felt a small part of her soul join with his. She loved his touch. Especially the sensations it stirred within her, as he rubbed his thumb along her tiny nub. His fingers stroked and caressed until passion gripped her in rippling waves.

His body rocked against her the more her hands met his skin, and she felt as if she were an irresistible woman, the kind a man loves and cherishes forever.

Suddenly, he removed his fingers and pulled away. No! Why would he stop so soon?

“Aveline, you don’t know what you do to me. There is so much more you must learn before...”

She felt empty without his caress, her shuddering body writhing for more. “Please, teach me.”

"When life gives you a farm, just meet (and make love to) a handsome Irishman."

I think a love scene is best when its realistic...and hot :) People just don't jump others, they get to know them and that's at the heart of a romance I think!

:) Thanks for the giveaway!
