BATTLEBORN EXCERPT 18+
When I opened the door, he was fumbling on the side of the bed. I realized he was reaching for his prosthetic.
“You don’t have to do that, you know.”
He sighed, pulling the blanket across his lap, covering himself. “I thought it would be weird.”
“Maybe a little, but this is you.” I approached the bed.
“What did you want? Is everything okay?”
I crawled across the length of the bed so I was kneeling behind him as he sat on its edge. “I thought, perhaps…” I licked his ear and he lifted his head with a low groan, turning toward me. His hand laced up into my hair as my lips sought his.
“Caitlin.” He moaned, as he pushed back and I straddled him.
“I’ve been thinking about this for hours.” I smirked, pulling my bag up to us. “I even brought provisions for the occasion.” I pulled out a string of condoms and his eyes went wide.
“Caitlin, I-” He pushed me back. “I don’t know if I can. To be honest, it’s an issue for me.”
I sat back on his thighs, the condoms in my hand. “We will work through it. I’ve seen you get hard for me, so I know we can manage it.” I pulled off my top, revealing my large, bare breasts to him. They bounced slightly from the action and he laughed.
“Those are nice.” His mouth was on me instantly, his hands working the firm flesh, giving me chills as I held his head, letting him have ample access. His tongue traced my silver dollar sized areolas, making my nipples hard and extra sensitive, as he tugged with his teeth playfully. I ground my pelvis against him, and I could feel my wetness as it built up with every gyration.
“Oh God, you’ve got me so horny.” I dug my nails into the back of his head. “I need that tongue on my clit, right now.”
He snickered, pushing me back as he grabbed my shorts and pulled the drawstring, teasingly slow. Then he grabbed them and slid them off of me, leaving me in just my panties. As I opened my legs and the air hit my pussy, I felt another awesome chill.
“Oh, please,” I begged as he slid me down his thighs, lifting my legs over his arms. I could feel his breath on me and it was making me crazy. My head was on the bed as his fingers grazed me through the thin cotton fabric.
“You like this?” He asked, inches from me now.
“I’ll like it more when I can’t hear you.” I pushed up off the bed, forcing my body to connect with his. In seconds, heat and slick, thick tongue were inside me.
“Yes! Fuck, that’s the spot,” I called out, grasping the bed sheets as he found my clit. Flicking and sucking as his fingers worked me. He drank me up, full on kissing my aching and needing muscles, pulling an orgasm from me that rendered me utterly speechless.
“Are you okay?” he asked when I didn’t speak for a few minutes.
As I lay there panting, I could feel his cock twitching beneath me, dancing and lifting me, teasing. Oh God, how I needed that inside of me. I sat up on my elbows, looking at him from between my lifted knees.
“Make love to me?” I reached out to him and he nodded, pulling me up to his chest. He pushed the blanket aside and I was pleased to find that he was already nude and… Holy Hell, huge!
“Oh well, well.” I grasped his rigid cock in my hands as he reached for the condoms.
“I was gonna warn you.”
“I think I can work it out, or rather, in.” I chuckled. “We’ll just go slow and easy… For both of us, I think that’ll be better.”
“If not torturous.”

In her own words... I have a mind that is easily distracted and prone to wandering. Tangents are my forte, and if you think my characters are going to fit a cookie cutter shape of any kind, think again. They live, they love, they eat, sleep, and fuck. I believe that people are inherently sexual creatures and my characters, be they human or something altogether else, are no exception.
I don't adhere to a single genera, I toe the line on several and wouldn't presume to be a master of any. So I suppose you could call me jack-of-all-trade-paperbacks.
I am a truth seeker, in my life, in my work. I’d apologize for it, but I kinda can't help m’self. It's my best and worse personality trait, well mostly. Being Bi-Polar I guess you could say that is the worst. But I believe that the disorder has made me, well... Me.
I have taken this life and twisted, carved, shaped, and molded it into the worlds of my characters. Albeit with a chainsaw, and it has made all the difference.
