When a Kiss is More Than a Kiss....

Hello Again!

As a reader I often marvel at the twists and turns in a story. As a writer, I love building up to and exploring the emotions involved in every kiss between the H/H in the story. We've all read stories of rough, bruising kisses; sweet, or innocent caresses of mouths; and scorching, hot embraces that mold & shape mouths until each ragged breath robs them of much needed oxygen.

I've used each of these expressions to demonstrate the emotions of the characters, but one of the sweetest kisses I've ever written is in my novel Tempered Dreams which deals with domestic violence and the healing that must take place before heroine, Katrina Simmons can fully love her hero, Scott Hensley.

Here it is ... the kiss of surrender.....

Pamela S Thibodeaux
"Inspirational with an Edge!"
The fire in his eyes and the heat of his touch seared the remaining shreds of doubt and fear in Katrina’s heart. Her hands trembled when she ran them up his strong arms, across his broad shoulders and buried them in the silky thickness of his black hair. “I love you,” she whispered, a heartbeat before her lips covered his in a tender caress.

Scott knew he’d finally won. The relief was so overwhelming he could have wept.

Yummy, I love it when the characters finally give in and go for it. And I love the fact the kiss is tender. Nice! :0)

When you surrender your heart and soul in a kiss with your soulmate, you get so much more in return! Your "Tempered" series sounds terrific : )

There is nothing I enjoy more than a love scene Kasey, where the couple surrenders to true love.

Amen Virginia C - love between soul mates is rare and precious - Even if I find love again, I'll forever treasure the one I had.

Thanks Joder - I try to portray the H/H deepest emotions in every scene.

Glad you enjoyed the excerpt Virginia & Jean P!

Thank you ALL for commenting.

It so does sound like an emotional read Pam. And her taking the lead with the kiss was special to read too in the excerpt.

There's that happily ever after we're all looking for, the moment when we know these two people who belong together finally overcome their obstacles. It's what keeps us turning the page.

Pamela S Thibodeaux said...

Aw Kara, coming from such a prolific author and sweet lady, your compliment means so much!

Yep Mysticmother, the HEA we all long for and some of us are BLESSED to actually experience.

Thank you ALL for stopping by - I'll be sharing a couple more Kissing scenes later.
