13 lines from "Firestorm on E'Terra" my erotic SFR novella. In this scene, the hero and heroine, Dex and Samy, are drinking Samy's special recipe health shake after their usual exercise workout.
Dex put down the thermos. Desperation speared through him. This would be his last opportunity, and only the chance of a freak storm had given it to him. He had to seize the day, take the chances he was known to take. He reached out and took her thermos, put it on the pantry counter top, and tugged her into his arms.
“I’ve wanted to do this for two months,” he whispered against her lips.
“Do it,” she ordered. Commanded. A strong woman who wrapped her arms around him and yanked him into the ample chest her uniform couldn’t disguise.
His lips devoured hers. The taste of oranges from the shake blended with her minty scent and made his head spin faster than when he nosedived off the Cerebus Canyon into wildfires that sent him reeling with toxic smoke. He’d managed to walk away from the dive. The taste of Samy, heady, intoxicating, threw him over a ledge he’d be lucky to survive, much less walk away from.
