First Encounters

Trudging along very, very slowly but making some progress when I can.  Here is another snippet from Justice and Mating Collides.


When he reached the open doorway to his office he found the source sitting next to his desk with her back toward him. The room was infused with her scent; it was overwhelming and he nearly lost his balance as he grabbed the doorframe with both hands, gripping it tightly to steady himself. He proceeded to inhale her sweet succulent scent – deeply.  Nostrils flaring as he luxuriated in new sensations of pleasure that was intoxicating.  Closing his eyes he inhaled several times taking in the exotic sweet fruity notes that settled and tickled the back of his throat as he savored the flavors swirling against his tongue.

Dustin hesitated in the doorway, swaying slightly side-to-side as he fought to gain control from the animal rising up inside. He always possessed exquisite control, no matter the circumstances but this woman was throwing him completely off balance. Something was different about her; he never encountered anyone or anything like this before. Yet, if he was honest with himself he knew what this meant, but instincts and circumstances forced him into denial.  Drawing upon all of his strength, while trying to clear his mind and wrap his head around what was happening; he gathered enough composure to enter his office and face the woman sitting before his desk.


I really should move this story to its own blog page and put posts in chronological order, so I’ll add that to the ever-growing to-do list for next week when I find the time.   I do hope you enjoyed this  first encounter, and if you missed prior posts please visit my home page and feel free to stay awhile, get comfortable, take your shoes off and follow more of Dustin and Samantha’s story as I work to move this novel along to completion.
