I thought we historical readers needed our own guess the book game.  I have a really good excerpt in mind, but have to post it later.  Wanted  to see if there was interest first.

Sounds good to me.  And we already have a clue...it's a historical :-D

(random English question: should it be a or an with historical?)

The basic rules are as follows: Use "a" before a consonant sound; use "an" before a vowel sound. Before a letter or an acronym or before numerals, choose "a" or "an" according to the way the letter or numeral is pronounced: an FDA directive, a United Nations' resolution, a $50.00 bill.

Who's writing?

And it's a History - an Historical.  Don't ask me why, I'm too old to remember.  I do remember getting straight A's in English however:P

I know, I know I'm a terrible tease to start this thread and then not give you the goods.  Guess I have to come through on my promise.  Here's the excerpt.  Those of you who know me well should have an easy time guesssing, so not a lot of clues right now except that it's historical, part of a series and fairly new.

 

******************************************************************************************************************

"Would you allow me to take you with my mouth?" he asked.  "It would please me to make love to you that way."

  Her gaze darkened at his choice of wording and her lips parted on panting breaths.  She nodded and stepped past him, her skirts swaying with her agitated stride.  There was no hesitation in her.  When she was decided, she never looked back.  He followed, his brain in a fog of lust and deep yearning.  She took a seat on the settee, her back ramrod straight.  The pose was prim, until she hooked one knee over the cured wooden armrest and pulled back the masses of white material, baring first her beautifully curved calves, then her lithe thighs, and finally, the silken heaven between her legs. 

(Hero) growled low in his throat, sinking to his knees and spreading her so wide that nothing wa hidden from him.  She was slick and hot, as he had known she would be.  Luscious (heroine's name), the Icy( word subsituted) Widow.  Except when she was with him.  Then she melted.

"I love to see you this way," he confessed, "Open to me, willing and craving."

Dipping his head, he licked up the seam of her sex, relishing the hiss of pleaure that escaped from between her teeth.  After this night, she would never forget him.  She would lie in her bed, remembering the feel of his mouth upon her, and long for the pleasure only he could provide. 

He surrounded her with his lips, tongue flickering over the tight knot of her clitoris with light, teasing strokes.  Her fingers drifted into his hair, caressing the sweat-dampened roots, her back arching into the intimate caress with a startled cry.  He held her hips down, the circle of his mouth creating a soft suction that intensified her thrashing and brought her to harsh, panting breaths.

"(Hero's name)! Dear God . . ."

 *******************************************************************************************************************

Anyone who has read this should rember this memorable scene.   If you haven't read it, you should because it's a great book.

It sounds familiar, but not.  Can't figure out if I've read this or not, but I'm leaning toward not right now.

Have you all noticed how the guys are always growling?  Dang, I'd love to be growled at (other than by dogs).

Lol!  I dunno, if my hubby growled, I'd think it was a hint for me to fix him lunch.  Seems to me like he used to growl once upon a time.  But back then we did wild & crazy things like have sex on all of our major appliances too.  Not sure we could do any of that now without better medical coverage...

He has a "raspy" voice too, in addition to growling.  My hubby has a raspy voice too, but doesn't growl--he just barks.  No, it itsn't Robin Schone.  Good try, though.  Who else writes sexy historicals?

Guess I'll just have to give you some more:

 

*****************************************************************************************************

He moved upward again, sucking the hard bed of nerves in an unfalteirng rhythm, forcing her to take what he gave her, forcing her to see what they had--a deep affinity that grew more precious to him by the day.

Her orgasm nearly prompted his, her c_nt clenching around his tongue as he drove it into her repeatedly.  He didn't stop, refusing her attempts to push him away, his mouth working her, taking her, making her cry out in climax again.  And again, until neither one of them could take any more. 

 

He rose, gripping the gilded lip of the settee back with one hand and aiming his c_ck at her slit with the other. 

His penetrating lunge into her body rocked the settee to its rear legs, the brutal jolt wringing a curse from him and a breathless cry from her.  (Hero) paused for a moment, his eyes squeezed shut as her c_nt rippled around him in the final throes of orgasm.  Only when she lay quivering in ther aftermath did he risk looking at her.

****************************************************************************************************************

Any guesses?

Those who know me well should have an easy time guessing.    No to Stephanie Laurens also.  I'm going to have all of you reading this author by the time this is done.

The only historical writers that I know of, or rather that I've read, who write that hot are Emma Holly and Nicole Jordan.  I've read a couple of others that use the same type of descriptive language, but I know I've never read that one.  That I'd remember:P

Nevermind - that's not it.  My new copy just came and I looked - lol.  I'll figure this out eventually.  maybe not before someone else guesses, but I'm sure now that I've read it at least, and as good as it sounds, chances are I still have it:P
