Forbidden Fruit Friday: It's all about the #kiss @vampauthormaya #romance #relationships #lust #love

Forbidden Fruit Friday

It's all about the...kiss

Quick, name the artist/group that sang these song lyrics!

 1). This kiss, this kiss

 2). I just want your extra time and your, kiss.

 3). But then you kissed me and suddenly I don't care any more.

 4). Kiss me once. Kiss me twice. C’mon pretty baby kiss me deadly.

 5). I want to kiss all over.

 6). Oh, kiss me beneath the milky twilight

 7). Your voice alive, a kiss of life, burning in me. 

 8). Kiss me softly, kiss me slowly. I get lost in you, like only lovers do.

 9). Oh no, don't be shy. You don't have to go blind . Hold me, thrill me, kiss me, kill me

10). Just a kiss on your lips in the moonlight

How did you do?

Don't worry, answers are at the bottom.

Just like lyrics in a love song, romance books can't deny the power of a kiss. It can be argued that a kiss can be more intimate than sex itself because of the passion, tenderness and emotion that can be communicated when breathing each others breath.

So, what is it about a kiss?

Well, here are some facts on kissing, courtesy MindBodyGreen:

Top 10 Facts on Kissing

1. Kissing helps people relax and significantly reduces the effects of stress.

2. On average, people spend 20,000 minutes (two weeks) of life kissing.

3. Kissing uses 29 facial muscles – it’s a very effective exercise to reduce wrinkles.

4. 66 percent of people close their eyes while kissing. The rest take pleasure in watching the emotions in the face of their partner.

5. A quick kiss burns three calories, an energetic kiss more than 10 calories.

6. Lips are 200 times more sensitive than fingers.

7. People who kiss their partners goodbye before going to work live longer than those who shut the door.

8. Eskimos do it this way: they rub noses together. Their lips open up once their noses meet. Then they take a deep breath and send air out while holding lips closed. After this, they notice the smell and scent of one other, followed up by pressing noses against each other’s cheeks for a freezing minute or two.

9. Kissing in public is a no-go in Japan, Taiwan, China and Korea.

10. When kissing, the body produces a substance that is 200 times more powerful than morphine, releasing a powerful narcotic effect on the body.

A "kiss" excerpt from Fire and Ice 

In no time she got the fire started.

The crisp crackling sound played out like music to her ears. Something indescribable in the way the wood popped soothed her, conjuring up feel-good memories from childhood campfires to her first winter in Colorado.

She took in a deep breath.

The striking hickory scent hit her first, then a mild fruitiness. With each whiff, the aroma caused goose bumps to swathe her skin in a pleasing tingle sensation. It rang earthy, with minty notes, reminding her of her grandmother’s cupboards.

Then she looked around her.

The glow washed the space in the splendor of crimson and orange, summoning the room’s objects to come alive in the cast of shadows. The warmth quickly took hold, taking the marked chillness out of the air.

She got up and slowly backed away from the fireplace. She watched the mesmerizing flames as the heat soaked through the comforter, warming her down to the bones.

All of it set the stage—the right kind of ambience for romance.

No matter his words of denial, everything about him told her that he wanted her. She faced Grayson and dropped the comforter from over her shoulders, exposing the robe that loosely tied around her waist. “Now. You did this all for me?”

“Noel,” he said in a cautious tone.

“Tell me, what were you going to do if you came to my bed?”

“Bad things.”

She bit her bottom lip and untied her robe. The garment hung loosely from her shoulders but gave him a clear indication that she wore nothing but her birthday suit underneath.

His eyes widened in delight.

Seeing him, seeing her made her nipples hardened in an instant.

“My God, you’re beautiful. Your body…”

“You want me. I want you." She walked slowly towards him.

He pushed back, sitting up straight in the chair. “We can’t.”

“Shhh...” She closed in on him. Placing one hand on each knee, she spread his legs apart. She fitted her body between his legs and kneeled down on the floor.

He leaned in close to her. “I have only one hand free, Noel. I handcuffed myself to the floor.”

“And?” she whispered.

“I-I don’t know. I can’t even think. You don’t know what you’re doing to me.”

She tilted her head up in his direction, letting her mouth linger right in front of his. She held her position, careful not to allow their lips to touch. “Do you really want me to stop?”

“Yes,” he sighed into her mouth, “no.”

She teased him, allowing her lip to gently graze his and pulling back as soon as they made contact. Each time she taunted, she looked him squarely into the eyes.

He looked back at her, full of lust and desire.

She gave him a little bit more of her kiss. And when she dipped her tongue into his mouth, the pent up desire they held for one another unleashed like a raging wildfire.

She cupped his face with both hands. The rasp of his beard against her fingers tantalized.

His lips were soft, his moans rough and intoxicating. His tongue entered her mouth, pushing deep inside, begging to become a part of her. Magnificent and breathtaking, his lust made every kiss she’d experienced in her past seem like child’s play. He gave her the ravishing kiss she’d always dreamed about.

They parted lips.

“May I touch you?”

He nodded his head.

See where this kiss will lead....
