"Sweetheart, you drive me crazy" #MidWeekTease #AARomance #99cents #romance


Welcome back to Mid Week Tease where we tantalise you with excerpts from published books or works in progress. This event is organised by the lovely Angelica Dawson and every writer is welcome to join in. Just visit the Mid Week Tease page to sign up.

This week's teaser comes from Making Scandal, book 2 in the Essien series which is currently $0.99/£0.99 for eBook for a limited time.

In this scene Mark and Faith are finally about to get down and dirty after a year of skirting around each other. Do you think they'll make it to the bedroom? LOL. Enjoy.


Mark leaned forward and grabbed her arm, the first time he’d touched her since they’d left Ebony’s house, and practically dragged her through the doors. She barely had time to take in her surroundings. Her heart pounded so loudly, the rush of blood between her ears drowned out every other sound.

Before she knew it, he had shoved her against the wall of his apartment. The door hadn’t fully shut behind when he had her flat against the concrete, his body crushing hers as his lips slammed down on hers.


His hand grabbed the short strands of her hair and tugged her head back as he slanted his sensuous lips across hers. No finesse in this kiss; no gentleness, either.

Passion flared as soon as their lips connected and his tongue plunged into her mouth in a rhythm that mimicked the actions she hoped would be repeated in her nether region. Pure animalistic hunger, a result of the months of restraint between them that could no longer be held back.

Suddenly out of control, she clawed at his shirt, wanting some skin-to-skin contact with him. She managed to pull the hem of his shirt up and her hands made contact with solid and hot stomach muscles.

A loud groan erupted from Mark as he lifted his head, both of them panting to get air into their lungs.

"Sweetheart, you drive me crazy."

His voice thrummed thick with lust. He ran the pads of his fingers over her breasts still encased in her bra and blouse. More sensation zinged through her body. But she still wasn’t satisfied. She wanted more. More body contact without the clothes between them.

She was already going mad with lust. The fire burning within her needed to be tamed before it burned her up.

"I can’t wait, Mark," she managed to moan out in a breathless voice. She moved her hand up to his shoulders, clinging onto his neck as she climbed him with her legs. "Hurry."
