Miguel withdrew, then turned and walked away. Robert pressed against the door, locking his knees so he didn?t fall. Miguel stopped at the base of the stairs and looked at Robert over his shoulder.

“Aren?t you coming?”

“You?re gay?” Robert breathed.

“Finally, you?ve got a clue. When you can walk, I?ll be in the bedroom waiting for you.” Miguel flashed Robert a devastating smile that lit up the handsome planes of his face.

He turned and went up the stairs. Robert watched his firm ass go. He’s gay, and he wants me.

What are you waiting for, idiot? Go after him, his inner voice, which sounded like Alex, said in his head.

Fumbling, he pulled up his boxers and pants. Holding them, he ran to the stairs. At the top, he went right to where he knew Miguel?s room was. The door was open. He paused, taking a breath before going inside. His breath whooshed out as he took in the sight before him. Miguel was naked. All that butterscotch skin was looking very lickable. Miguel was sprawled across his big, king-sized bed, his fingers curled around his cock, stroking himself. Enthralled, Robert walked over to the bed.

“Strip,” Miguel said.

Robert let go of his pants, starting to pull them off.

“Slower.” Miguel?s demand stopped him.

He frowned. Miguel smiled, a wicked twist of lips.

“Strip. Slowly. I want to see you. I?ve been waiting for this.”

#TeaserTuesday ~ Ralston’s Way (Cutting Room Floor)

talccutfloorsmFor today’s #TeaserTuesday I’m sharing with you a scene from the cutting room floor. It didn’t make it into a final copy of a story. Not even the publisher has read or seen it. This is unedited. Enjoy.

Ralston’s Way
A scene from the Cutting Room Floor
By: Talia Carmichael
TC Free Read
January 2017
Genre: Contemporary
Series: Prentiss
Length: Scene

You cannot jump the man in the middle of the yard Blayne. He silently reminded himself of that. But damn if he wasn’t tempted. Blayne intentionally slowed and let Morgan get a little ahead of him. He stifled a moan as he looked at Morgan’s ass in those jeans. The jeans he wished he was so he would be the one plastered all over that delectable butt.

Morgan slowed and came adjacent to him and glanced at him before lifting an eyebrow. “What are you up to Cactus?”

If I had my way you’d be in me as I laid in your bed. Blayne didn’t say that aloud and he was proud of his restraint. “Don’t call me Cactus.”

He didn’t say it with any real heat.

“Ok.”

Blayne wasn’t believing his ready agreement. Morgan smiled a slow grin that made Blayne even hornier. He was rethinking the not jumping Morgan in the yard. They could get the heart pumping. Blayne glanced around and spotting the barn he smiled at Morgan. Morgan lifted an eyebrow again and the suspicion was plain on his face.

“I need to walk by the barn.”

“Why?” Morgan narrowed his eyes. “You have a sudden burning need to see the horses?”

“Yes, yes I do.” Blayne said it vehemently and smiled innocently.

“I don’t believe you.” Morgan snorted. “Come on Cactus. You’re not going to seduce me behind the barn.” Morgan did a slow perusal of his body. “When you scream it’s only for me to hear. That’s private and ours.”

The look only added to Blayne’s need to have Morgan naked. His words made him get a weird flutter in his chest. Blayne frowned and growled before stomping away.

“There’s my Cactus.” Morgan tone was fond.

Blayne turned and stuck out his tongue at him.

“Maybe we should go inside so you can find a better use for that tongue.”

Blayne smirked. “Nope. I want to finish our walk.” He strode away putting more sway in his hips.

Morgan’s soft groan then rumble made Blayne smile wider.

Thoughts ~ Contribute

funIf we’re destroying our trees and destroying our environment and hurting animals and hurting one another and all that stuff, there’s got to be a very powerful energy to fight that. I think we need more love in the world. We need more kindness, more compassion, more joy, more laughter. I definitely want to contribute to that. ~ Ellen DeGeneres

While the night progressed Conrad enjoyed being with Jade. His wit and sharp tongue made for interesting conversation. Later as they got ready for bed Conrad slid between the sheets as he waited for Jade to finish up.

“You do know that just saying in a snotty voice because I said so doesn’t mean you won the argument.” Conrad increased his voice so Jade could hear him in the adjacent bathroom.

“You know it turns you on.” Jade returned.

“Yeah, yeah it does.” Conrad chuckled. “Are you finished primping and priming princess?”

“You’re going to pay for that,” Jade said as he came into view in the bathroom doorway.

Conrad stifled a groan as he took in his naked form. Jade stalked across the room and Conrad reclined on the bed. The predatory movements also turned him on. Jade paused at his side of the bed before he put his knee on the mattress then the other. He crawled toward him and Conrad licked his lips. Jade reached his side then swooped in and kissed him deeply. He pushed off the covers then straddled Conrad all without releasing him from the kiss. Conrad was powerless to resist the sensual man.

Jade lifted his head and stared at him with lust-filled green eyes. “I love how you give me everything.”

Conrad’s heart clenched and he returned the look. “Always. I’m yours and you’re mine. And I’m not letting you go.”

Jade looked confused then it cleared. “You don’t ever have too.”

“I’m going to hold you to that,” Conrad stated.

#TeaserTuesday ~ Wicked Maneuvers

exsnFor today’s #TeaserTuesday here’s a peek of what I’m currently working. I’m self-editing as I get it ready for submission. This is an unedited sneak peek. Also since this is sneak peek it might not make it into final submission of book.

Wicked Maneuvers
By Talia Carmichael
Genre: Contemporary
Series: Bonds of Justice – Book 5

“One day your mouth will get you in trouble,” Dominic said between clenched teeth.

“God I hope it does.” Isaac replied reverently.

Dominic rubbed his fingers along the bridge of his nose. “You’re giving me a headache.”

“Want me to rub it and make it better.”

The words were innocent enough but in that tone Isaac used Dominic knew it was anything but. The damn man could read a menu an make it sound like sex. Dominic lowered his hand and glared at Isaac. He pivoted and walked away from the pain in his butt that was Isaac. The sound of Isaac’s unhurried footsteps behind him made him grit his teeth. Dominic knew he was doing what he’d caught him doing so many times before.

“Stop watching my ass.”

“Nope. It’s a lovely specimen. Although it’s a shame your jacket is covering it.” Isaac said.

And Dominic didn’t need to look at him to know he was smirking.

“Get a better look then.” Dominic flipped up his jacket and showed him his ass.

Isaac whistled long and low. “Get naked so I can see better.”

Dominic stopped turned his head and stared at him. Isaac grinned and Dominic could see where Craig got his irreverent behavior.

“What.” Isaac shrugged. “I figured it was worth a shot since you showed me your ass. It’s covered by your pants so I don’t have the whole picture of how it looks.” H stopped before him. “And I’m curious if it is as good as I imagine it to be.”

His tone was low husky with a silken promise of so many things that needed a flat surface. Dominic narrowed his eyes. This was the first time Isaac was so blatant with his desire. He’d seen it in his gaze before and heard it in his passing comments. But this was as good as a declaration. A declaration that he wanted Dominic and Dominic wasn’t sure if he was ready for that.

Liar, you want him too. Hell yeah he did but on his terms. Dominic was not about to give into his baser urges until they came to an agreement of who was in charge—him.

“So much better.” Dominic dropped his voice letting the need coursing through him seep into his tone.

Isaac partially lowered his lids over his compelling gaze. “Don’t make promises unless you plan on doing somehow about it.”

“Ditto. You’ve been playing a game and messing with my head for months.” Dominic crowded him. “I don’t like games.”

Isaac didn’t back up standing his ground. “I don’t play.” The disdain was plain at the thought was in his voice then it went deeper. “I’m very serious, Dominic Rossi.” He started at him then turned and walked away.

Dominic watched him go and couldn’t help but wonder why he all of a sudden felt like prey. Prey that was hunted by a master hunter. He lowered his gaze and appreciated Isaac’s long legged stride and swagger. The damn man looked good and knew it. Isaac paused before the open door and flipped up his jacket. Dominic’s mouth went dry as he saw his ass in his slacks. Yeah he wanted to see Isacc naked. Dominic lifted his head and met Isaac gaze as he looked over his shoulder.

“Returning the favor.” He winked “It looks even more awesome naked.”

“You’re shameless.” Dominic muttered and hell if he wasn’t turned on.

“You have no idea.” Isaac laughed and went through the door.

I’m in so much trouble.

Isaac grinned as he thought of the expression on Dominic’s face. He wad turning out to be much more than he thought. Isaac had never been an ass man but yet couldn’t stop looking at Dominic’s. The man was smart, confident and could match wits with him. It was going to be fun making the detective lose his cool. Isaac had made it his mission to get under his skin.

Thoughts ~ Path

pathI truly believe that everything that we do and everyone that we meet is put in our path for a purpose. There are no accidents; we’re all teachers – if we’re willing to pay attention to the lessons we learn, trust our positive instincts and not be afraid to take risks or wait for some miracle to come knocking at our door. ~ Marla Gibbs
