Smut Slot - Roping the Wind

by Kate Pearce
Don't you just love smut Fridays? I know I do! Here are a few excerpts from my upcoming book for 'Cheek' "Roping the Wind", a stirring tale of a washed up cowboy and his orthopedic surgeon.

It comes out in the UK on December 6th. Unfortunately, those of us who live in the US will have to wait until Feb 5th 08-unless you comment on this post of course, and get lucky!

It was an exhausting book to write as both the characters kind of leapt off the page and started fighting from page one. And as soon as they discovered their mutual kinky interest in leather, things got really interesting...

It’s available to pre-order at Amazon UK and Amazon.com

“I knew I wouldn’t hurt you.” Jay touched her lip with the finger he’d used on her clit. “You were already wet and ready for me, weren’t you?” His cock jerked inside her as she licked his finger tip. “Did you touch yourself? Did you get yourself hot for me?”

She bit his finger as he slid out of her. “I like to think that you did, although according to our deal, your body belongs to me and I should really be giving you permission.”

He grinned as she drew in a sharp breath and pressed his hand over her lips. “Uh, oh, darlin’. Don’t be shooting your mouth off. I don’t want to have to get mad at you.”
Over the top of his hand, her blue eyes snapped murder. Without releasing her, he leaned down and picked up his leather belt.

“How about I put you over my knee? We’ll call it a round dozen if you promise to ask me nicely next time you want to play with yourself.”

He paused to catch her reaction, realized her entire attention was fixed on his leather belt. Lust and dark excitement stirred deep in his belly. He lowered his voice.

“You like the sound of that, yeah?”

He looped the belt in his fist and brought it up to caress her throat, sliding the soft leather down toward her breasts. Her nipples puckered as he rubbed the belt over them. Her breathing shortened to soft pants and he took his hand away from her mouth.

“Yeah, you do, don’t you?”

Helen shuddered as the leather belt danced over her butt.

“Next time you feel like playing with yourself, call me.” Jay said.

She struggled to breathe as his fingers delved between her butt cheeks.
“You don’t own me.”

She jumped as the leather smacked against her skin twice. His hand returned, smoothing the pain away.

“I own this pussy.”

“That’s ridiculous.”

Two more sharp cracks of the leather made her writhe, mingling pain with pleasure making her want, more.

“Just tell me you won’t do it again without permission and I’ll let you go.”

Helen pressed her lips together.

“Nothing to say?”

She tensed as he slid two long fingers past her anus.

“I’d like to fuck your ass now. My cock thrusting into all this warm sensitized flesh.” He added two more fingers making her gasp. “I bet you’d come so hard they’d hear you screaming on the Bay Bridge.”

He reached up to the workbench and picked up a long scrap of soft leather, showed it to her in his hand. Her eyes widened as he wrapped some of it around his thumb and applied it to her clit.

“Did you know that cowboy boots can be made out of almost any kind of leather?”

“No…I didn’t”

“Goatskin, shark, lizard, alligator, ostrich…good old American bison.” He rubbed her clit a little harder. “This is deerskin one of the softest. Does it feel good against your skin, Helen?”

He watched the slow play of his thumb, the way the leather darkened as her juices soaked into it. She tried to move her hips against the solid thrust of his embedded fingers but he kept them still and deep.

“I like deerskin myself. The color, the suppleness and the way it stretches over a last.”

“A last what?”

He chuckled, bent to kiss her just above his rubbing thumb. “Shoe last. The three dimensional wooden pattern a boot maker carves for each customer.” He licked a corner of the leather into his mouth, tasted her unique scent mixed with the animal musk. Licked her again, harder now, from his knuckles and back over his thumb. She shuddered in his arms.

He withdrew his fingers, studied how wet they were and licked them clean. Holding her gaze, he wrapped the leather around them.

“I wonder how they’ll feel now, inside you?”

He slowly slid them back inside her, felt her internal muscles grip him like a fist as she came so hard she almost fell off the work top. He removed his fingers, stood up slowly and grinned at her.

Strangely enough, this story made me write another short piece which will be included in “L is for Leather”, which is an exploration of my character’s fantasy life and was super cool to write!

So comment to win a chance to win a copy and have a great weekend.

Wow. Just...wow.

I thought I wasn't into cowboys. You've made me rethink that assumption!

Portia Da Costa said...

Phew, hot stuff, Kate! I've never particularly fancied cowboys either, but your guy sounds like a bit of alright! ;)

Sue A. said...

I like it when the leads start off fighting, because you know they're just going to have kiss and make up.

Janine Ashbless said...

Phwoar!!

Is that British enough for you, Olivia?
;-)

stephanieb said...

Great excerpt!!Love the cowboy pics too!!

Olivia Knight said...

I'm being very British - spluttering and clearing my throat loudly.

Are you embarrassed easily? If so, don't worry. It's all part of growing up and being British.

Very, very convincing writing. Erm. Right. I'll just, um, put the kettle on, shall I?

Laura J. said...

mmmmmmm......Cowboys.......

Great excerpt!! I can't wait to read the rest!

Anne Tourney said...

Leather and cowboys . . . yum :). I never had any idea that there were so many species used for leather, but it seems the possibilities for sensual experimentation are endless! Does your surgeon ever get to experience the joys of flogging with her cowboy? Floggers come in all kinds of leather, too. And deerskin is just delicious in any form.

Congratulations on your hot new release, and thank you for this tidbit of cowboy smut, Kate. I love it when I get a chance to unleash my inner cowgirl; I usually keep my secret collection of cowboy romances in the closet. You'll have to come visit me in Denver when they have the annual stock show!

Janine Ashbless said...

Serious question Kate: I always thought Cheek was lighter on the sex/spanking/perversity and heavier on the shopping than Black Lace, but this excerpt sort of confounds my expectations!

What's the difference between the imprints as you see it?

Madeline Moore said...

Great stuff Kate! I must go to the doctor's office and I've been told to 'expect to wait'. Now I have something to do - er - I mean think about, just to be clear...

Amy S. said...

Very hot excerpt! Congrats on the new release! I have this one on my wishlist. It sounds so good! Love cowboys!

kristina lloyd said...

I'm echoing Anne - leather and cowboys! Yum.

And I'll echo Janine as well - what *is* the difference between BL and Cheek?

Congrats on the forthcoming release, Kate.

tetewa said...

The excerpt was HOT! Sounds like a juicy read.

"Serious question Kate: I always thought Cheek was lighter on the sex/spanking/perversity and heavier on the shopping than Black Lace, but this excerpt sort of confounds my expectations!

um-I'm not sure anymore :)

I 'think' its because they are set in contemporary America and the heroines tend to be younger-altho in this book she is 35 and he's 30.

God, I don't know-this book is actually quite light and funny in tone overall-apart from the sex scenes obviously! so maybe that's it-and of course, my cowboy heroes are one of the #1 favorite fantasies for American women!

It's the lightest stuff I write and the simplest in terms of sexual orientation i.e. one man/one woman. The rest of my stuff is a lot more complicated.

And you all think I'm so sweet...

Kate Pearce said...

Thanks for commenting everyone!

I learned such a lot about making cowboy boots (and orthopedic procedures) while writing this book-the boots part was a lot more fun and I'm determined to get myself a hand-made pair of boots before I get much older! Maybe with the huge advance I'm sure Virgin will give me for my next book (snort)

Kate Pearce said...

Anne-I'd love to see your collection of cowboy erm romance.

and leather floggers-maybe that's the difference between Cheek and Black Lace?

WoW! That was Hawttttt. I love cowboys :-) Thanks for teasing us LoL.

Hugssss

Theme song...

Save a horse....

Well, with this one, I'd save a whole flock of horses.

Gonna go buy me some leather now.

Got Naughty? said...

Strangely enough, this story made me write another short piece which will be included in “L is for Leather”

Strangely enough, I was just looking over your piece, which starts the book off!

Congrats, Kate. I believe you may corner the cowboy market shortly. Or, at least, corner a cowboy.

XXX,
AT (in disguise as Naughty or Nice!)

Sam said...

Cowboys never go out of style <3

I wish Jay would give me a lesson on leathers. Yum.

Kate Pearce said...

Ms A T...who on earth could that be?

Thanks Alison-thinking about the story for 'L is for Leather' helped me understand my characters so much better!

Anne Tourney said...

I'm glad Madeline asked the question about Cheek v. Black Lace -- that's something that came into my head as I was reading your excerpt this morning, but I forgot to work it into my comment. I couldn't help noticing that the D/s dynamic in this scene seems more intense and overt than what I'd usually associate with Cheek. Cheek did release Emma Holly's BDSM novels back in the beginning, but I thought that since then, they were trying to be more "vanilla".

And I'd agree with you, Kate, belts versus floggers may be the key here. After all, a belt isn't specifically a BDSM toy.

Is it painfully obvious that writing for Cheek has sent me into kink withdrawal? I miss the harder stuff. I really do.

Kate Pearce said...

Anne,I think part of the answer is tone-and, despite the intensity of the sex, I definitely write romance with happy endings, and that is one of the things required by 'Cheek' I think!

Mathilde Madden said...

Cowboys. Well, I sure love me some Deadwood.

Leather - not so much. But then if his belt is just hanging there doing nothing, well, least he can do is hand it to me and...

Oh, hand on, that's not quite right is it? Excuse me, I need to go find me a guy in a stetson...

Kate Pearce said...

That's Stetson with a capital 'S' ma'am... :)

Jenna Mayson said...

Wow. I'll never look at a leather belt the same way.

Congrats on the new release Kate!!

Anonymous said...

Wow, Kate. Very hot. I love your cover as well. Very nice.

Caffey said...

Oh first I so love the cover! You really have gotten covers with Cheek that so fit. I so look forward to your westerns...I never can find them but know I can from you! That was a treat to read with the excerpt!!!

You think you'll plan more western related books with Cheek?

Madelynne Ellis said...

Great excerpt, Kate! Good luck with your second cowboy book.

Ana Aragon said...

Great excerpt, Kate! Your usual, naughty self, I see!

Anonymous said...

I loves me some cowboys.Your excerpt made me think of a short-lived TV series called "The Yellow Rose." It featured Sam Elliott as a real,sexy working cowboy. He could do that slow, sexy drawl and definitely grab your attention with just a few words.

Kate Pearce said...

Cathy-I will have at least one more cowboy book coming out with 'Cheek' next year, about another of the Turner clan :)


God I love Sam Elliot-I wish I'd seen that show!

thanks guys for all the comments-I appreciate them :)

Hehe. Excellent excerpt. I'm kinda pouting because February seems so far away.

What a great excerpt!
