I'll be sharing a few kisses with you this week from some of my books, starting with one from my novella, If I Let You Go!

I tried to push Dominic aside so I could get to the door, but he refused to budge. I pushed harder, trying to use my anger to shove him out of the way. His response was to grip the tops of my arms until I stopped fighting, glaring into his eyes.
His lips crushed down against mine. No warning. No gentle lean-in. One minute we were apart, the next, I was locked into a kiss I hadn’t expected. I froze only for a second before giving in, my body shifting from shaking with rage, to shaking with something completely different. One of his hands slid from the top of my arm to the back of my neck, the other slipped around my waist, his fingers burning me through the thin material of my dress. Unsteady, I clutched at his t-shirt, hoping it would hold me up enough until I was ready to touch him.
Well this is completely unethical.
I didn’t care. It was better than shouting.
I’d never hated and wanted someone so much in my life.
My fingers twisted the fabric of his shirt, bunching it up in my hands as his tongue found its way into my mouth. He reached behind him, his nails scratching against the wooden door until he found the handle. Swinging it open, we stumbled through and shuffled along the hall to his bedroom, entwined in a desperation-fuelled kiss.


  1. Whoo. Some intense snogging going on here. Lovely stuff.

  2. Super intense and scenes going from fighting to kissing are great when done right. This was perfect.

  3. Great descriptions her specially with the fist and the shirt.

  5. How fun! Love your kissing scene. :)

  6. I like the different take on this- how she was mad and he did what he wanted anyway. LOL

  8. Hot damn! I'd forgotten how awesome this kiss is, it's perfectly charged with the right levels of passion! Love it! :D

  9. Kissing scenes are fun to write and fun to read if they flow with the story. Sometimes you're writing and one will just sneak up on you because they fit. I love those surprises.

    You made me laugh with, "But wait, we have prizes."

  10. That's the start of a roller coaster relationship!

  11. Love the "I never hated and wanted someone ...." That and the unethical line makes you really want to know what this relationship is about.

  13. The love/hate kisses are always intense! Love this one, Kyra!
