Blog Tour: Grounded by R.K. Lilley

Posted February 18, 2013 by Holly in Blog Tour, Teasers / 0 Comments

James and Bianca’s story draws to a close in the explosive conclusion to the Up In The Air Trilogy.

After a short but earnest courtship, Bianca can no longer deny her feelings for James, and though she’s tried her hardest, she can’t help but see that he cares deeply for her, as well. In a completely uncharacteristic move, she has put aside her misgivings and agreed to live with the enigmatic billionaire. Is her leap of faith the beginning of something wonderful, or is it too much, too fast?

As James and Bianca feel a growing need for each other that neither can deny, circumstances beyond their control intervene, trying to tear them apart. Amidst the ever mounting threat of a monster who wants Bianca dead, and the constant pitfalls of an indiscreet past that James can’t seem to escape, can these two passionate lovers manage to find their happily ever after?

An excerpt:

James rose, striding to the closet.  He came back out in a pair of boxers.  “Don’t 
move,” he told me.  “I need to get something from the entryway real fast.”
I didn’t say anything, and he looked at me.  He pointed, the twist to his mouth 
almost playful now.  “I mean it.  Don’t move.”  With that, he strode out.      
“Crazy bastard,” I muttered loud enough for him to hear, but I didn’t move.  I 
heard him laugh as he walked down the hallway.
I let out my own laugh when he strode back into the room.  He had the soft beige 
scarf from the photo shoot wrapped around his neck.  He grinned a wicked kind of grin.  
I felt myself grow wet just from that look.  
He was out of his boxers and back on the bed in a flash of naked golden skin.  I 
couldn’t look away.  
He straddled me, unwrapping the long scarf from his neck slowly, teasingly.  It  
took forever the thing was so long.  
I watched him, captivated.  I felt like I was getting an X-rated strip tease from a 
glorious God.  “You’re the most beautiful thing on the planet, James,” I told him.  
At the bottom of my vision I saw his erection twitch, and he closed his eyes for a 
long moment.  There was no denying that he was susceptible to flattery, but that wasn’t 
why I’d said it.  I’d said it because I couldn’t look directly at the sun and not remark that 
it was blinding and brilliant.  
Once the scarf was free, he covered my eyes with it, wrapping it twice around my 
head.  He raised my arms above my head, stretching them taut, his hard length rubbing 
along my torso as he did so.  His cock pushed hard into my sternum as he wrapped the 
scarf around my arms.  I gasped.  
He wrapped that soft length from my wrists to my elbows.  It was a firm hold but 
not tight.  When that was secure, he wrapped it over my collarbone, lining it even with 
my underarms.  He barely jostled me as he wrapped it around me twice there before 
moving down to my breasts and then ribs.  He wrapped it around and around with 
smooth sure motions, somehow managing to get it under my body while barely moving 
me.  He wound it around my waist next, bringing it back up to wrap around both my 
eyes and arms, binding them together.  
He had me well and truly caught when he pulled back, straddling my hips.
He said one word before he set to work on my body with his mouth.  “Struggle.”  
I tested my restraints rather hesitantly at first, not imagining that the scarf would 
pose any real challenge.  It was so soft, so stretchy, but the man knew what he was 
doing.  Always.   
I gasped as he licked a path down my navel to my inner thighs.  He sucked at a 
tender spot while I worked against the scarf, making no progress, just moving the 
wicked thing against my body deliciously while he did even more delicious things down 
below.  He worked that clever mouth from my groin to that sensitive spot behind my 
knee and back again.  I struggled hard, because it felt good, because I couldn’t believe 
that the ridiculous scarf could hold me so securely, and because I wanted my hands 
free to push that teasing mouth where I needed it to be.  
I only succeeded in trapping myself more securely, and James took his sweet 
time moving that tongue just where I craved it.
