Title: Book of LoveAuthor: Erin SatieGenre: Historical Romance
About Book of Love:She's trying to make ends meet. He's out for a bit of fun.
He fastened her lips closed with his own, silky and firm. The tip of his nose nudged her cheek, cold from being outdoors. When she didn’t react, he leaned in. Pressed a dozen small kisses into the seam of her lips, each one gentle as a butterfly sipping nectar from a flower.
She felt like someone had flicked a feather duster around the inside of her ribcage. Jumpy and breathless and overwhelmed from the lightest of touches. Stroud brushed his lips along her cheek, puffed his breath warm against her ear. He nipped at her earlobe and the strange, ticklish panic built and built.
“Coco…” Stroud thumbed her chin, a furrow appearing between his brows. “You really didn’t expect that, did you?”
“What?” Cordelia sounded strange to her own ears. Scared. Was she scared? She didn’t think so, but she couldn’t tell exactly. “How?”
A strange, sad expression flitted across his face. “Do you like it?”
“Yes.” The word came first and the certainty second. Yes, she had liked it. So much affection distilled into a touch, washing over her. She hadn’t understood that if words could expand a thought until it made clear sense, then touch could do the opposite, condense it all down into a moment of fugitive, bafflingly powerful sensation.
