#SampleSunday Nissa: a contemporary fairy tale

Happy Sunday! I want to include another sample from one of my current WIP's, Nissa: a contemporary fairy tale. This is still in draft form, so some things may change, but I hope you enjoy it!

“So, you took the bullies on single handedly, huh?”
I was having a hard time catching my breath, so I just nodded my affirmation.
“That’s really hot.”
He put my hand down and leaned in to me, as if he was going to give me a kiss, but he stopped just before making contact.
I closed my eyes, allowing my other senses to take over, and I focused on the feel of his breath on my lips and the smell of his skin.
Without realizing it, I started to try and urge him closer. I hummed a seductive tune under my breath and felt the passion begin to swirl.
I opened my eyes and saw that his eyes were dilated. I realized what I was doing and shook it off. I wanted Levi to want me for me, not because I enticed him with magic.
His eyes returned to normal and I closed my eyes once more.
He leaned in a bit closer and I shuddered when I felt his tongue sweep across my bottom lip. My lips parted instinctively, and I waited. This time his teeth bit softly down and I whimpered, savoring the tingles that were running through me.
I waited for his next move and licked my lips in anticipation. When I heard the deep growl emit from his chest, my eyes flew open and we both reached for each other.
For the next few minutes we were kissing each other eagerly. Our tongues mingling and our hands roaming over each other.
I felt the taut muscles of his back, his arms, and his shoulders, before I reached for the back of his head with one hand, and pressed the other against his lower back, holding him as close as possible.
His hands wandered where they pleased, causing my breath to come in quick gasps and the fire to spread rapidly through me.
I pulled away to catch my breath and was about to kiss him again when he stopped.
I looked into his sea green eyes and took another deep breath. I smiled brightly licking my lips again.
He followed the stroke of my tongue and his eyes flashed. He closed them briefly and I saw his chest heave.
“You make me feel so many things, Nissa. I don’t know what I’m going to do with you.”
“What do you want to do with me?” I countered.
His eyes flashed and he looked at me intently.
“Sometimes I wonder if you understand what you’re saying, or if you are truly so innocent that you have no guise.”


  1. Love the name, Nissa, and how successful you are in buildling the steam factor in just a few lines. Looking forward to reading this one.
