Solomon set the stove to simmer, put aside his utensils, and strolled the short distance to stand before Jada. 

With arms outstretched, he settled each palm on both sides of the counter, locking Jada in and holding her attention with his gaze.

โ€œYouโ€™re hungry for the chef?โ€ his deep voice murmured.

Jada nodded, her speech stuck behind the soaring tempo of her pulse.

โ€œHmmm…โ€ he growled. โ€œNow that weโ€™re more than friends, what do you think about me being a part of your future?โ€

Her heart knocked. โ€œYou are a part of my future, Solomon.โ€

They stared, absorbed in each other in every way. 

โ€œYeah. But I meanโ€ฆโ€ he leveled his mouth with hers, โ€œโ€ฆI want to be your man, Sunshine.โ€

Jadaโ€™s entire body was lit up with sudden sparks of energy, and the warmth that filled her heart spooned her like a comfort sheโ€™d never known.

Teaser Tuesday – Everlasting Desire

Hey reading family! Today I bring you an un-edited teaser of Everlasting Desire for your reading pleasure. As you may be aware, Everlasting Desire is a part of a three book series and the other books, Heart’s Desire, and Soul’s Desire, is written by best selling, award winning author’s Delaney Diamond and Sharon C. Cooper.

Our books are currently available for pre-order, and here’s a sneak peek into my contribution to the series. Enjoy! ๐Ÿ’‹

The rise of a new day

Warm arms, strong and muscular wrapped Jada in a shell. Her heart skipped a beat, and she turned, slowly facing a rugged goatee. Her eyes ran up his lips, so succulent and tempting, over a strong nose, into dark brown eyesโ€”a glimmer of hazel sparkling in the depth of his gaze.

โ€œYouโ€™re… awake,โ€ she announced.

His arms pulled her tight.

โ€œI am,โ€ he responded, his unblinking stare, piercing.

โ€œI know that look and before you ask, can I brush my teeth first?โ€

If she admitted to herself that being this close to him was causing absolute wreckage on her spirit, maybe he would grant her request a little faster.

โ€œPlease?โ€

He eyed her a second longer, considered denying her request because this was typical Jada. She wanted to hide from him, and there was so much that needed to be said.

โ€œWe need to talk.โ€

โ€œI know, and we will,โ€ she moved to slip out of his arms, and he released her, with frustration in a sigh that dispersed on his lips.

Running into the sanctuary of his master bathroom, Jada shut the door without bothering to lock it, knowing Solomon wouldnโ€™t interrupt whatever quiet moment was needed. He was so considering. Always on the lookout for others and making sure at every moment that Jada was good or possessed what she needed.

Not only that, but their friendship, from the moment they met in grade school, grew, as their fondness for one another developed. Their similarities became more apparent, and they exercised those commonalities daily. Like adding martial arts to their regular exercise regimen or watching dark rom-com movies like A Thin Line Between Love and Hate. It was their all-time favorite. Theyโ€™d hit the streets for any political front-runner they believed in and even had the pleasure of being partners on daytime game shows like Family Feud.

But most importantly, Jada and Solomon had been able to do with one another, something that theyโ€™d yet to accomplish with anyone else. They recognized each otherโ€™s differences and understood that those distinctions played a vital role in their individual character. Whether it was Jadaโ€™s need to unplug every appliance or electronic in the house because she swore the energy used from them while they were off was money that could be saved, to Solomon walking out of the room and leaving the lightโ€™s on because he would return shortly or that it slipped his mind.

Regardless of which, instead of demanding the other get with the program, they individually worked on their own accord to bring ease to the otherโ€™s anxiety by being mindful of those instances.

 It was everything she needed in a mate. He was everything she needed.

That thought made Jada shake her head and push off the door and make her way over cold Italian marble tile to the glass shower door. She reached for the nozzle and checked the temperature of the water as her thoughts rewound to yesterday, then last night.

Marcus.

Jada had the hard evidence to prove that heโ€™d been cheating on her. As she added the camera to the stuffed animal heโ€™d purchased for her birthday the day before, second thoughts had riddled Jadaโ€™s mind. But she needed to know. More importantly, she was desperate to find out if her assumptions were just that.

But they hadnโ€™t been. And the raw, ugly truth made Jada lift her hand to her chest and massage a thumb between her breasts as if to console the pain that rested there.

It was time to leave him once and for all. But that wasnโ€™t the biggest issue of yesterday.

She kissed her best friend and remembered it as if she was sober and full of sound mind when sheโ€™d lifted into his mouth.

Excuses taunted her.

You were drunk. You needed consoling. You wanted to feel loved again.

And even after all of those half-truths floated around her mind, Jada shed her clothes and stepped into the downpour of crushing water, knowing, it was something else altogether.

โ€œWhat is happening?โ€ She murmured, exhaling while entertaining risky possibilities.

But she said, โ€œI want everything you have to offer.โ€ It was the closest sheโ€™d gotten to admitting her truth, and if the dimness of Derekโ€™s gaze and the unsteady way his heart rate sped were an indication of his excitement, Eden was eager to explore what they could become, too.

Derek reclaimed the soft contour of her lips, moans bouncing between them as his dick grew between her legs.

A look inside Her Naughty Suitor

A Pool Fรชte

Ten minutes. Thatโ€™s all the time it had taken to enter the pool area. With the sun no longer a beacon of light in the sky, the nightlife of Bali in full swing, Eden sauntered across the brick cemented ground, past a line of firepits that were stationed along the out skirted pathway of the swimming pool. Heat from the flames warmed the atmosphere, carrying soft winds in a mingling current against the palm trees.

Guests lounged, some in small circles, some holding discreet conversations, while others laughed out loud and made a show of their spirited dialogue.

Eden felt the rouse of her nerves settle against her skin before she saw him. But it didnโ€™t take longer than a mere blink and turn of her head to connect with Derekโ€™s golden brown gaze. He was crowded with three men and four women that laughed and swatted playfully as his group reveled in their entertaining banter.

ย ย With his attention on her, Derekโ€™s lips moved at the group, and with one proceeding step, his stroll carried the strength of his muscular physique on a path in Edenโ€™s direction.

She inhaled a soft breath, carrying her eyes over the snug fit of his unbuttoned white oxford shirt. Broad shoulders stretched the material with each influential move toward her, and the pectoral build of his torso teased Edenโ€™s eyes as they traveled down his navel, aware of the bulge in his shorts as her gaze settled on the beach sandals on his feet.

Edenโ€™s nerves were even more galvanized now, and it was then that she realized the type of trouble that truly lied ahead.

โ€œI missed you,โ€ Derek said, slipping an arm around her waist as he drew her into the shield of his embrace.

A wide-spread smile transformed her mouth, lifting the sparkle in her eye as she moved her hands up his chest and around his neck.

โ€œIs that so?โ€

โ€œDamn right it is.โ€

A heavy chuckle eased off her lips.

โ€œI missed you as well.โ€

โ€œDid you?โ€

Eden nodded, her cheeks stretched with heat. โ€œI did.โ€

โ€œThen what took you so long to get to me, woman?โ€

Eden tilted her head to the side. โ€œI couldnโ€™t figure out which swimsuit to wear.โ€

Derek sucked off his teeth, his gaze roaming over the silk wrap she wore.

โ€œAnd what did you decide?โ€

Eden took a step out of his arms, then another as she unfolded the tie that held the garment closed. When it opened, she blocked the second thoughts that flooded her mind, removing the wrap from her shoulders. It fell to the ground into a pool at her feet, but Derekโ€™s dark gaze never made it thereโ€”frozen as he took in every inch of her striking curvaceous form.

Covered in a swarm of heat, his pulse hitching, and heart slamming, Derek murmured a vile oath, his life suddenly endangered under the rickety knock tumbling in his chest.

It had taken massive effort for Eden to stand poised as he watched her, but she was breaking under his silence, her nerves getting the better of her. She glanced at the pool, suddenly interested in hiding beneath the warmth of its aqua blue shelter. And without warning, she slipped off her heels, took the three steps to the edge, and dived right in, calmed by the exhilarating rush of its wave.

On her heels, Derek stripped the shirt off his back, his arms outstretched as he took on the same plunge as she. Eden swam with the grace of a mermaid, and when she rose from the surface at the back of the pool, she was covered in shadow.

Her eyes fluttered open, water running down her face as she was suddenly engulfed in rock hard arms and a heated sheet of muscle that was Derekโ€™s chest.

A growl trekked from his mouth. โ€œWhat exactly are you trying to do to me in this sexy ass swimsuit?โ€

Her ears tingled, the coolness of his breath thrilling as it flowed down her wet neck.

โ€œI was hoping,โ€ she said, her backside rubbing into his crotch, โ€œthat maybe, youโ€™d like it.โ€ Her hips wined, unearthing a sweltering fire that attacked their loins.

Derek spun Eden in his arms, his mouth dropping to her nose.

โ€œMona Lisaโ€ฆโ€ He gritted his teeth, the lock of his jaw containing his sudden urge to swallow her mouth and fuck Eden with unstrained vigor against the wall of the pool.

โ€œWhat? Donโ€™t you like it?โ€

His gaze drove over the architecture of her feminine face, watching her eyes flutter innocently and wickedly simultaneously.

โ€œLike doesnโ€™t begin to describe what I feel regarding anything concerning you. But especially, thisโ€ฆโ€ He sucked his teeth, reining in his thunderous heart. โ€œYouโ€™re so fuckinโ€™ perfect.โ€

Edenโ€™s pussy thumped, her breath hitched, and her eyes became expressively adoring. She was completely unhinged around Derek. For whatever hand fate was dealing her, Eden couldnโ€™t control herself, wanting, yearning, craving to connect with him. It was the same voodoo she felt at her familyโ€™s annual Christmas party that had her seizing in his grasp as he fed off her plum with the deep thrusts of his tongue.

Wait No More

The rumors… they came from sources that she trusted; the news, the neighborhood, and now the patrons in her night club, Rendezvous. Still, Sophia Clark wouldnโ€™t believe that the soldiers who returned from their tours included the only man she ever loved. But when Dean St. James strolled through the door, the shock to Sophiaโ€™s spirit nearly disassembled her. There was no explanation for the reckless up-surging beat of her heart, not after the way Dean disappeared, leaving Sophia to wonder if heโ€™d become a casualty of war.

Now, without time to process her turbulent emotions, Sophia comes face to face with his return, which proves to challenge the love they lostโ€”bringing them together or closing the door on what could have been for all time.
