Seven Sexy Sins Serenity Woods Blog Tour Giveaway


Seven Sexy Sins by Serenity Woods

Sin Number Two – Sloth

Thank you so much for having me on your blog and for helping to spread the word about my new release from Samhain Publishing.

Seven Sexy Sins is a best-friend-to-lovers story set in the sub-tropical northland of New Zealand during a hot and humid summer. Journalist Faith Hillman has been commissioned to write a series of articles for a women’s magazine based on the seven deadly sins, relating each to a “sexy sin” to encourage bored housewives to experiment in the bedroom. The only problem is: she hasn’t done any of the sins on her list! Rusty Thorne is her brother’s best mate, and he’s happy to help Faith with her research, although he gets more than he bargained for when he falls in love…

The second sin Faith comes up with is Sloth. She equates this to being lazy when having sex and letting your partner do all the work—especially oral sex. After her parents died when she was 18, she concentrated on her studies and working hard, and even though she’s had a couple of boyfriends, she hasn’t experimented much in the bedroom. So she’s excited about getting her hands on the gorgeous Rusty, and he’s more than willing to help her explore the sin!

Here’s what happens when Rusty finally gets her to himself…

He reached out and started to pull the pillow away from her. She clung onto it for a moment before letting him slide it out of her fingers. He threw it on the floor, took her hand and linked their fingers again. “Well, I, for one, have no idea how you’ve managed to stay relatively innocent for so long.” He pulled her toward him, wrapped his arms around her and rolled so he was leaning over her. He nuzzled her neck, kissing her ear. “You’re obviously a sex kitten deep down.”
“I’ve never thought of myself that way.”
“It’s been obvious to me for a long time.” He lifted his head, running his fingers lightly up her thigh. His green eyes were warm, intense. “Are you ready for your second sexy sin, Ms. Hillman?”
A frisson of excitement and nervousness ran between her shoulder blades, and her mouth went dry. “Um…”
He kissed her, nibbled her bottom lip and ran his tongue across it. “What’s the matter, Faith?” He rubbed his nose against hers.
“I’m nervous.”
“About what? It’s only me.”
“Don’t you see? That’s the problem.”
He brushed a strand of hair away from her face. The amusement faded from his eyes, to be replaced by gentleness. “Sweetheart, I’m so pleased I’m going to be the first to do this for you. I love you, I’m incredibly fond of you and that’s what makes this so special.”
Faith looked into his eyes. She knew he meant he loved her as a friend. But her heart did a little tap dance all the same.
He trailed his hand down from her face and then drew spirals around her breasts, brushing the nipples occasionally, making her catch her breath. He traced light lines across the flat of her stomach before moving into the triangular thatch of curls beneath.
She sighed, and he kissed her while he slid his fingers even lower, into the already hot, wet part of her. They slipped deep inside her to collect the slick moisture, and then returned to begin arousing her even more.
She opened her legs wider, welcoming his touch, and his mouth left hers to kiss her cheeks, her eyelids, her neck, around to her ear.
“You’re so sexy.” He ran his tongue around her ear, making her shiver. “You drive me crazy, do you know that?” His deep voice seemed to ring throughout her, at the right pitch to set her whole body vibrating like a bell. “With your hot little ass and your tight, firm breasts and this incredible mouth…” He kissed it again. “I sat there and watched you talking to Dan and Toby and Eve on Wednesday and all I could think about was picking you up and carrying you off somewhere so I could do bad things to you.”
“Oh,” she said faintly.
His lips hovered a millimetre above hers, teasing, just out of reach. His fingers were firm, stroking her insistently. “I want to bury my mouth in you. I want to taste you, Faith. Are you going to let me taste you?”
“Yes.” Her nervousness had vanished, to be replaced by a hungry desire for this sexy, provocative man.
He reached behind him and threw all but one pillow onto the floor, lay on his back and placed the last pillow under his head lengthways. The room was subsiding into twilight, and somebody had lit a barbecue on the beach somewhere—the subtle smoky smell complementing the sweet scent of the jasmine that was rising again. Music also filtered through with the aromas, either from one of the other motel rooms or from the beach, slow ballads and lazy acoustic guitar, Jack Johnson, maybe, or John Mayer, the notes spiralling with her thoughts.
His eyes were dark, intense. He was no longer the friend she’d known for millennia, replaced instead by the lover she was beginning to adore. She moved up the bed, manoeuvring herself astride the pillow, and his hands guided her down onto his mouth.

I’m talking about each of the Sins on different sites. So if you want to find out about all seven, you’ll have to hunt me down! Check out Author’s Angels for more details about where I’m appearing next.

Congrats on the new release. This book sounds fantastic. Can't wait to read it. I like the fact that Rusty and Faith have been friends for years before becoming lovers, even though they needed the excuse of Faith's articles.
