Happy Hump Day!
I want to say 'thank you' to everyone who stopped by last week and left me an encouraging comment. You motivated me to finish Royal and I submitted it. Fingers crossed and hope it gets accepted.
In the meantime, let me give you another teaser from the story. Last week we read from Blake's POV. This week I bring you Jaheim's POV.
He's just woken up in Blake's bed for the first time.
I hope you enjoy this teaser. It is unedited.
I had to be having an erotic dream because there was a hot male body beside me in bed. I nuzzled against his shoulder, breathing in his spice while tracing my fingertips down his hard abs. He smelled wonderful—a woodsy, earthy scent that called to me—and I wanted to bury myself in him.
Nuzzling close, I rubbed my body against his, wanting to mark myself with his fragrance as well as mark him with mine. I’d never behaved this recklessly before and could count my former lovers on less than one hand. None of them had provoked this response from me.
My flesh burned with feverish lust. Unable to stop myself, my palm closed over velvety hard flesh.
“Easy, Jamil,” a deep sensual voice washed over me and pleasure spiked through me.
He’d gotten my name wrong, but I almost didn’t care. Some people got the name mixed up. For a man with a voice as sensual as his and a scent as intoxicating as his, I’d overlook the error.
“My name is Jaheim,” I whispered in his ear, placing a kiss to his lobe. My nose grazed his scalp. He had close-cropped hair, coarse and stubbly.
“That’s a lovely name, but you’re still Jamil to me.” His hand caressed my side.
My skin tingled. His touch had an electrifying effect on me. At the same time, the meaning of his word came to me. Jamil meant beautiful.
No one had ever described me as beautiful. Good-looking, handsome and even hot. All yes. But never beautiful.
Opening my eyes, I lifted my head to look at the face of the man.
The darkest pair of captivating eyes I’d ever seen stared back at me.
My breath hitched and my throat grew thick as my mouth dried out. I think I just fell in love for the first time.

There's definitely a connection between these two. But is it just lust or something deeper?
