I spent this week working on edits for my upcoming release due out at Loose Id on November 16, 2010. So I thought I’d share another quote from Jay and Lincoln’s story, Breathe (m/m erotic romantic suspense).
No matter what Jay’s brain was telling him about what a fucked-up idea this was, he could not ignore the solid cock wedged against his ass cheek. No more thinking. He turned and gripped Lincoln’s neck. He drew the man to him. The kiss was slow and sensual, but tinged with desperate need, a longing months alone created in a man. Lincoln drove their mouths, their tongues, their bodies together, over and over. He consumed Jay with the kiss as they rocked and clutched. The taste of Lincoln, his smell, his touch was everywhere, all over Jay at once, and he didn’t want it to end.
From Breathe by Sloan Parker
I’ll post a full excerpt when the final edits are approved.
“Love me without fear
Trust me without questioning
Need me without demanding
Want me without restrictions
Accept me without change
Desire me without inhibitions
For a love so free…
Will never fly away.”
Hope you all find a lover who strives for such a state.
Here are some more behind the story details about More, specifically some of my first notes for the character of Richard Marshall. These are directly from the original character sketch sheet, including the photo I used for inspiration. (Side note: The final result of what a character looks like may be nothing like the photo, but an image gives me something to visualize, making him/her a bit more real. Also, some of the character traits change as I write the story. Some become no longer relevant.)
Photo for Inspiration: This is not exactly what he ended up looking like in my mind (especially the hair), but here’s the first photo of Richard.

Sampling of Character Sketch & Personality Traits
Full name: Richard Marshall
Graduated from NYU with an MBA
Doesn’t hide who he is for any reason.
Neat, orderly, tidy.
Clears his throat when he has something to say he doesn’t want to mention.
Does not apologize for who he is. Or what he does.
Successful in business
Wants to make the world better for those he cares about. Does it by changing their immediate world, affecting change in their daily lives.
Fears most: Losing people he loves. Not being what they need and watching them walk out. Not being successful, losing business.
