I decided to share a snippet from The Dragon's Devotion today, since I've been spending some time with these characters lately as the book I'm working on is about Bastien's younger brother Griffen. Here is a snippet of Bastien and Corentin's first kiss.
The word was little more than a whisper, but Bastien turned to him all the same, faint surprise coloring his features. He parted his lips, but whatever he was about to say was lost when Corentin bent and touched his mouth to his in a gentle kiss.
Gentle, yes, but no less stunning for all that.
Bastien made a small sound in his throat, and Corentin feared he might pull away, but he only stepped in closer, bringing one hand up to clutch the front of Corentin’s jacket. Corentin put his hands lightly on Bastien’s hips and continued the caress of his lips over Bastien’s, coaxing reactions out of him with delight, and drowning in the sensations himself.
