“How about sex and dinner?” she asked, her throaty voice sending tingles to play on the fine hairs on his neck. She rubbed one fine, slender foot on her lengthy leg, to stress her point.
Her audacity caught his breath. They hardly knew each other, having met only a few minutes earlier. And yet here she was, her naked flesh provoking him into a frenzy. There was no mistaking the hunger in her eyes; the need for his body; her desire for his flesh.
He swallowed and tried to look away, to avoid her burning stare. She snickered at his discomfort as he lowered his eyes to examine his trembling fingers. Speak! Say something! His mouth obeyed the mental command and opened, but words failed him. His gaze caressed her nude body to linger once more on trim legs that seemed to go on forever. He bit his lip, his heart skipping a beat. She had him now; he would stop at nothing to slither between her mounds, to experience the ecstasy promised by her inviting, crooked smile; consequences be damned.
His determination slipped fast. With the last remnants of his strength, he made a final, desperate attempt to negotiate. To save himself. “Why not dinner first?” he croaked, a thick bead of sweat trickling down his forehead. “It is Valentine’s Day, after all.”
Her raspy laugh made his knees tremble. He leaned against a tree to stop himself from shaking. A delightful, mortified shiver traveled through his body and onto the wrinkled bark at her next words.
“Don’t be silly,” she said with a smirk. “Love is a balanced meal. And who’s ever heard of a praying mantis eating before sex?” She inched closer, her faceted, emerald eyes gazing softly at his smooth skin. He closed his eyes as her mouth brushed against his ear. Her hot breath tickled him, made his heart race. A long tongue slithered out of her lipless mouth to lick his slender neck. “That would just kill my appetite.”
Very clever Mr. Rossis!
“…her raspy laugh made his SIX knees tremble.”
I’ll have to fix that 😀
Ha ha! So cute! You had me to the end.
Heh heh, glad to hear it! 😀

BELATED Valentine’s sexy read. And I DIDN’T write it. hahaha
Have fun with Nicholas Rossis. 🙂
LoL. I didn’t have time to read it before but you got me worried for a minute when I read the title. I thought I had lost my spot at RRBC. hahaha
Very well done, Nich. I guess you won’t mind it if I reblog this.
Have a great weekend.
Lol – glad you liked it. Thank you so much for reblogging! 😀
You are very welcome, sir! 😀
I was quite surprised by your exotic depictions! Great Nicholas. Perhaps you could consider adding another genre to your list?
Lol – I’ve learned from the best 😀
Reblogged this on Manuscript. Head. Drawer. and commented:
LOVE the hook. Haha! 🙂
Thanks, I’m so glad you enjoyed it! 🙂
Lol! Very good! But why this year is Valentine’s Day all about sex? It used to be all about romance. Have we all been infected by Shades of Grey? It seems to be the new religion…
It’s not just about sex! Didn’t you get to the dinner part? (evil grin)
Actually your story was funny! I was refferring more to VD advertising in general.
Thanks. And I know. I was just being my usual, cheeky self… 😉
When you make over 60 billion dollars then everyone can be infected..
I’m not commenting on the book or the movie, just that VD used to be about romance and love. Now it seems to be just sex…
How can it be otherwise when it has the same initial as Venereal Diseases… 😀
Seriously though, I agree. I’m quite the romantic at heart, so I haven’t noticed it, though. I probably have to take off my rose-tinted glasses someday.
Nicer to be a romantic than a cynic like me lol!
Remind me to send you some flowers next year 😉
Lol! You need reminding??? Men!
Lol – fair enough, I deserved that. 😀
Only teasing, you know that!
So… you don’t want the flowers? Wait, I have to call the florist and cancel that order…
Actually, you sound just like me. Electra loves having flowers in the house, but I always nag her when she cuts them from our garden. Although I say nothing when she buys them from the farmer’s market each Friday, so I guess I’m a bit of hypocrite. 🙂
Lol – snap! 😀
You had me there for awhile.Happy Valentine’s, my friend.
Heh heh, glad to hear it 😀
Hope you had a lovely one 🙂
Insect drama. Refreshing take on Valentine’s Day. Gave me a good chuckle.
Heh heh, I’m glad you thought so 🙂
Thanks, glad you enjoyed it! 😀
Well, now, as a writer about intelligent insects, THAT is pretty funny – in a horrifying sort of way! :-p
Lol – thanks! 😀
That was so much fun. I was caught completely off guard. Wonderful!
Heh heh, glad you enjoyed it 🙂
Phew, I also thought you were turning all Mr Gray on us, LOL. Great to see you’re still your good old self 🙂 Happy Valentine’s Day, dear friend <3
Fans of Nicholas Rossis: don’t worry; he’s fine. Keep reading.
Lol – thanks for the warning, Sally! 😀
You had me worried there for a minute, Nicholas…. I wondered if you had gone to see “50 Shades of Grey” and it had addled your brain…..
Glad to see you’re just FINE!
Happy fake holiday.
Lol – is it out yet? Ah, but of course it must be – in time for V-day. After all, it is the greatest love story of our time, right? 😉
Loved it. Too bad he lost his head over her.
Lol – yes, he fell head over heels for her 😀
Have a lovely Valentine’s Day 🙂
What a way to start MY day. Hot Hot. Hot. 😀
Lol – see? I can do steamy, too! 😀
😀 😀 😀
Ha ha! Cheeky…
Heh heh, yes, it was… 😀
Happy Vanentine’s day 🙂
And to you too 🙂
Very amusing. I have a great photo of one, that a friend managed to get close enough to take.
They’re quite the characters, aren’t they? 🙂
Have a lovely Valentine’s day 🙂
