Book Two of the Body Scenes Series—On Sale at Ellora’s Cave March 17, 2011
Book One, Stroke Me, is on sale now here! Readers have noted it’s a recommended/must read!)
Trendy columnist Yvette has wanted Finn for years. The feeling is mutual, but Finn, a renowned artist, has yet to let pleasure come before business. He wants Yvette to model for a series of paintings for his next showing at the exclusive nightclub and naughty art gallery, Body Scenes. Unfortunately, the perfect theme hasn’t materialized in his usually creative mind. That is, until a heat wave hits Manhattan and the idea of hot, slick, naked body parts causes inspiration to strike!
Armed with custom ice sculptures, Finn turns a steamy photo shoot into a wet and wicked affair to remember!
“Give me a hungry look,” he said, his deep voice low and sexy. “Like you’re restless and in desperate need of me.”
Her eyelids dropped to half-mast. “That won’t be difficult to do.” Leaning close to him, she said, “I am restless and in desperate need of you.”
Hell, she’d wanted him for four years. And here he was, in her condo when she was wearing next to nothing.
She was no longer cursing the heat and humidity. It’d helped her to end up exactly where she wanted to be. Well, almost… “So, you want me to look horny with come-hither eyes?”
He grinned at her. “I want you to look like you’ve got something to give me and you think I want it.”
Her gaze connected with his, holding it steady. “Do you want it?
Finn’s jaw tightened. He reached out to her, placing one hand on her hip. The other slid around her neck to cup the back of her head. He pulled her close to him and said, “You know I do.”
Her hands slid between them and she worked the buttons on his shirt as she said, “Took you long enough to make a move on me.”
“Timing,” he muttered before his head dipped and his lips brushed over hers. “It turned out to be perfect today. Especially because I want the whole weekend with you. A quick fuck’s not going to be enough.”
“And here I was pissed off that my cooler was shot to shit. Seems it chose the right time to crap out on me.”
“Sometimes, it all just falls into line.” As though done with the small talk, his mouth pressed to hers.
Yvette’s lips parted and his tongue plunged inside, sweeping over hers, tangling with it, teasing it. Teasing her. Oh what a wicked tongue it was! Yvette couldn’t wait to feel it on her nipples and her clit.
Tugging the material of Finn’s white, button-down shirt from the waist of his jeans helped her to spread the opening of the shirt wide, so she could run her hands over his magnificent body. His hard pectoral muscles. His rigid abdomen. His strong back. Her hands splayed across his shoulder blades as she pressed her chest to his, loving the feel of his hot skin and hard muscles against her breasts.
All the while, Finn continued his tongue tango, deepening their kiss as though her hands on his body excited him even more.
When they finally came up for air, Finn groaned. “Christ, this is painful.” He shifted from one booted foot to the other, as though to alleviate the pressure between his legs.
“Getting a little snug behind that zipper?” she asked as she ran the tip of her tongue over her upper lip.
Tasting the minty flavor Finn left behind, which mingled with her vodka to create a refreshing combination.
“I’ve been hard since I stepped into your elevator.” He shook his head. “Hell, I’ve been hard since I met you.”
Grinning, she said, “Perhaps you should have waited to break out the ice. It’s melting while we’re making out.”
“It’ll last a while longer.” That said, he dipped his head again and kissed her passionately, conveying his desire for her. His need for her.
Yvette melted faster than the ice under his heat and intensity. Her body pressed tighter against his as the hand at her hip moved to her ass. He cupped the lace-covered cheek, giving it a hard squeeze. His erection pushed against her belly, making her wish she was as tall as him so his cock would nestle between her legs. She wanted them naked so she could rub her mound against the full length of him, feel the thick organ slide along her wet pussy lips. Nudge her opening. Slip inside…
She moaned as her body went into sensory overload. She wanted Finn in the worst way, but couldn’t stop kissing him to tell him. His mouth on hers was electric!
The fingers that were twisted in her hair, which was damp at the nape of her neck, slid over her throat and across her collarbone. His hand swept lower and he palmed a breast as his kiss went on and on. He squeezed roughly, causing fire to ignite in her belly. The pad of his thumb rubbed her nipple even tighter. When he pinched it, Yvette tore her mouth from his.
His hands on her body felt even more sinfully delicious than she’d imagined!
Her breath came in hard pulls, as did his. But Finn didn’t let up. His hand eased down between her parted legs and he stroked her outer lips through the thin material of her panties, the lace adding extra friction. Making her crazy for him.
“Finn,” she whispered on a sharp rush of air.
As though accepting that one word as a plea for mercy, his fingers swept aside the damp crotch of her panties and he stroked her bare flesh, making her hotter. Wetter...
Fanning yourself yet? ;-)

Stroke Me by Calista Fox, Book 1 in the Body Scenes series
Newly divorced Annabelle leaves her proper life behind for the bright lights, big city experience in Manhattan. Her first night in town, her best friend takes her to Body Scenes, a hedonistic hotspot where artists create themed masterpieces for exclusive display—using naked bodies as their blank canvases.
When a renowned artist asks to paint Annabelle in a sexy scene with three very hot men, the request is too tempting to pass up. With each stroke of the brush on her sensitive skin, she’s more than ready to be the star of the mural—and the erotic foursome.
