With the release of "Out of the Night: Book One," its book tour across the net, I wanted to treat readers to something from the next book, "Gates of the Garden: Book Two." As I've joked with Emily Tilton in the past, my idea of taboo is vastly different from others. As I said to my BR, "I guess I'll have to look for what I think of as 'soft taboos' in Gates to have something for the hop." This snippet caught my attention- The Queen is clothed and Vala is naked. I don't get why this is a taboo, a turn on for some, but I know it is :D.
Vala threw herself across The Queen's lap and folded her hands on her neck underneath her hair; she gasped with the roughness of his jeans against her skin.
"I am just wearing jeans." The Queen laughed. "Your skin cannot be that sensitive."
"I just wasn't expecting it, my Queen."
The Queen laughed again. "You are a silly little girl." He rested his hand on her ass, pushing her pelvic area against his legs. "How often have you felt jeans against your skin?"
"Ah... constantly, my Queen."
