A Taste of Heaven

Sometimes you ask me where I get the inspiration for my heroes. Tyler Hollins, the hero of A TASTE OF HEAVEN, had his beginnings with a magazine picture of a very handsome and popular actor.

Greedily he drew her to him and took her lips again. The inside of her mouth was hot and slick, and an intense desire burned in him to lay her down on a pile of blankets. To shelter her with his body and press kisses on her smooth, naked skin, while he pulled her hips to his to surround himself with her warmth. And afterwards, to sleep with his head on her breast while the rain poured down around them...
