It’s All about Kissing

One of the most basic ways of expressing affection, greeting, respect, or amorousness is kissing. The following is a list of the many types of kisses.

Butterfly Kiss – Opening and closing your eyelids against your partners for a fluttering sensation.

Cheek Kiss – Gently brushing your lips across the other person’s cheek; often done on a first date.

Earlobe Kiss – Gently sipping and sucking the earlobe.

Eskimo Kiss – Gently rubbing your noses together.

Freeze Kiss – Putting a piece of ice in your mouth, opening your mouth and kissing your partner, passing the ice to him/her with your tongue.

Foot Kiss – Gently sucking the toes and then kissing the foot.

Forehead Kiss – Gently brushing your lips across the forehead.

French Kiss – A kiss involving the tongue.

Fruity Kiss – Hold a small piece of fruit between your lips, kiss your partner and nibble on the fruit together.

Hand Kiss – Gently brushing your lips across the top of her hand.

Mistletoe Kiss – Kissing under a piece of mistletoe.

Neck Nibble Kiss – Gently nibble up and down your partners neck.

Nip Kiss – Gently nibble on your partner’s lips, being careful not to bite.

Talking Kiss – Whisper sweet nothings into your partner’s mouth.

Tiger Kiss – Sneaking up behind your partner, grab them and gently bite their neck, lightly growling.

Tongue Sucking – Using an open mouth, gently suck on your partner’s tongue.

Vacuum Kiss – Kissing open-mouthed, gently sucking in as if you were sucking the air from your partner’s mouth.

My latest release from Decadent Publishing: Acceptance


Being the CEO of a major architectural company in California has taken over far too much of Chase’s life, leaving no time for romance. But when a handsome Spaniard offers drinks and conversation, talking leads to one spectacular night and an awareness of what he really wants. But once Rico returns home to Spain, Chase will be alone, again.

Rico lives on his family’s strict schedules with no time for contemplating what is missing in his life. He didn’t expect to meet someone special on this business trip. But he is drawn to the big, striking blond American. Giving Chase someone to talk to, takes Rico’s mind off his problems. And a mutual attraction gives them both a chance to forget everything else and let their passionate natures run free.

Chase has a company to run and Rico must return home to Spain, a truth they must both accept, but will acceptance be enough when it comes to waking up alone?
