Morning After - Tempting Fate

Well, I spent the day of my new release celebrating in bed.

No...no, unfortunatly it's not what you think. I've got a wicked cold. Yuck. So not the way I would have liked to celebrate my first LSB release!

But here's a bit of an excerpt for you reading pleasure and then at the end I've got a question for you and a chance to win. Thanks for celebrating the "Morning After" with me!

Excerpt from Tempting Fate:

She stood at the center kitchen island. He was behind her. Close behind her, pressing her hard into the island. He didn't seem to notice, though, as he finished his cocktail.

But oh baby, did Chloe notice.

She leaned back slightly, bringing her back completely in contact with Tanner's front. That's when he stilled, setting his glass down in front of her.

“Chloe, what are you doing?”

What was she doing? She was making herself feel really good. And she had little doubt that Tanner could make her feel even better.

But she said, “Nothing.”

He pushed forward, his thick cock pressing into her behind. She pressed back just as hard, enjoying the contact. Wanting more.

Her breasts felt heavy and she was sure that moisture saturated her panties.

“I want more,” Tanner said.

At the same time his hands moved to her waist, tickling the exposed skin between her shirt and pants.

“Yes,” was all that she could manage.

She thought it was probably much more polite than the “Touch me more” that was threatening to spring out.

As if he heard her unspoken plea, his hands did move. They slid around her waist to her stomach. His hand splayed open on her stomach, practically covering her from her pubic bone to the underside of her breast.

“Please move your hand,” she said. “And I don't mean away.”

She didn't care which way. Up or down would be fine with her. Either way promised her extreme pleasure.

She held her breath, wondering what he'd do next.

His hand slid upwards.

“Oh yesss.”

Rather than cupping her breast, he drew lazy circles around her. Her breasts weren't huge by any stretch of the imagination, but they'd be a nice handful for him. She desperately wanted more contact.

Taking the risk, she broke the contact of her back to his front to lean forward into his caress.

His breath was warm on her neck when he laughed. The smell of the fruit juice obliterated any smell of alcohol on his breath.

“Don't be so greedy,” he said, pulling her back towards him again.

But she did get her wish. He cupped her breast fully in his hand. At the same time, he brought his other hand around to cup her other breast.

“Nice,” he said.

Nice? This was a lot better than simply nice. This was better than the all you can eat non-fat chocolate bar in the Elysian Fields she went to a few thousand years ago.

So, here's my question. Do you have a favorite cold remedy (sorry, did you think it was going to be something about the book - I'm being more selfish than that today)? Either a home remedy or a particularly effective medicine from the store? I don't have time to be sick so I'm looking for all the help I can get! One lucky (random) commenter will recieive an e-copy of Tempting Fate.

Sounds like a great book!

I use Aleve Cold and Sinus or Mucinex.

I enjoyed the excerpt. Sorry about your cold. I find that hot tea and lemon is soothing especially if you have a sore throat. I also am partial to Theraflu, the type you pour into hot water because I find it also soothing. When I have a cold I tend to like warm and soothing kind of things. Hope you feel better soon.

DayQuil and NyQuil. I am a mom and when I need to be functional I can't be drowsy. Likewise, when I need to sleep, I need to be able to sleep well in order for my body to battle my ailment. It takes care of symptoms of colds too.

When I'm sick I like warm soothing things too. I drink chamomille tea with either sugar or honey. Then there's good old chicken soup, or any kind of soup. If you're congested try a home remedy my mom used to give me. Put a chopped onion in a jar with honey and let it set overnight. Drink a tablespoon a few times a day. It tastes awful but it works.

Liked that excerpt, Emma.

Sorry you're sick, bad colds do make you feel miserable. Homemade, steaming chicken soup would usually make me feel better when I had the worst colds. Could also be allergies. Mine are acting up the past couple of weeks and often you can have some of the same symptoms as a cold - one way to tell if symptoms come and go, like sneezing, a cold won't stop and start like that. In that case, an OTC allergy pill can give some relief. I'd go with the chicken soup in either case if you feel congested.

Hope you feel better soon. Maybe Tanner can help out some there? lol

Love the excerpt!

Sorry to hear your sick. I always drink Celestial Seasonings tea when I don't feel good. They have all kinds of different Wellness teas like Echinacea that helps a cold and Sleepytime Extra that helps you sleep. If you don't have that, a hot cup of tea with brandy in it is a good replacement.

Hugs on the cold, Emma. I returned from the Romantic Times Convention with a heck of a sinus attack. My personal favorite is Nyquil. I sleep drugged but wake up feeling so much better.

Try hot tea with honey and a good dose of whiskey or brandy. It might not cure you but it could knock you out until you feel better.

Nyquil and Dayquil are the best medicines I have found for the relief of cold symptoms.

Mix honey and lemon juice together with some Jack Daniels. Should make you feel better. :)Vicks Vaporub always seems to help too when you rub it on your neck and chest. Also, if you suck on some Altoids wintergreen mints, they will open up your sinuses. This really works.

Sorry to hear that you not feeling well. I hope your wrapped up nice and warm, sipping something hot right now.But as a for a suggestion. I would say all the other remedies in the comments above sound great but if you a tea fan, then I know of a very effective tea. A combination of echinacea, peppermint and chamomile tea can help. The stronger it is, the better. Echinacea boosts the immune system, peppermint dilates the bronchioles, and chamomile sooths the stomach and takes away congestion. Its especially effective in the early stages of a cold, and should be taken about one cup 2-4 times per day. I hope your feeling better soon.

My mother gives me water boiled with ginger root, but sweetened with honey.

Great excerpt.

As soon as I feel the tickle my throat, I take vitamin C capsules constant for a couple of days.

Hope you feel better soon.

Thanks for all the suggestions on feeling better. Personally, I've been going with the Nyquil.

Now, for the winner - Pam P is the winner of a dowload of Tempting Fate! Congratulations!
