Will it be Lily? What is a ‘Winter girl’?
Fun, sex, romance and a little twist of the paranormal, makes this a must read erotic romance.
Today we have a visit from Lily Prescott, the main female character in The Winter Girl
Hi Lily, Welcome to the blog, firstly tell us a little about the book you feature in.
The Winter Girl is really the story of me moving to the country, into a house that I have been left by my grandmother when she died last August. It’s a love story. I don’t leave my job. I’m a corporate lawyer. I still have an apartment in the city where I work, but I make that leap to move myself away from an unhappy situation. I take some leave, and work a few days commuting. I get to the country town thinking I’ll have a little peace and quiet, and wham run into this gorgeous guy.
I can’t say much more as it would be a spoiler but it’s a fun, sexy story, and you’ll love Starr Forrester, the lead male character. I mean who wouldn’t.
Most of us want to be different, so what is the one thing you wish the author had done differently with you?
I like who I am. I can’t think of much I would want to change. I’m strong, intelligent, not afraid of my sexuality and sensuality. Oh…maybe I would have liked to be blond as I have brown hair…oh no on second thoughts it’s a great color, scrap that thought. (Grins)
My friend and she’s a colleague at the firm too, Mia is her name. I would have liked the author to write a little more about her and especially towards the end of the story when she hooks up with someone. Maybe I can convince the author to write another book with Mia in it.
There’s a few great characters in this book. The people who befriend me in the town, and Starr’s friends and they have their little stories within the book but I’d love to know more about some of them. Naturally, you can’t have the author rambling on about all the people I find interesting. (Smiles)
You get the chance to have the author change your name what will it be?
I like Lily Prescott, and there’s an especially nice touch from the author in the name of my house that my grandmother has left me. I’ll leave you to read that in the book. I might tell you here that Starr my gorgeous and so sexy lover has a nickname. I’ll leave that for the book too.
Thank you for dropping by. Before you leave, can you share one of your favorite parts of the book without giving too much away and tell us why you chose it?
This is hard because I love the whole book, but I’ll choose a love scene, it’s so yummy to read about being made love to. It’s 18+ rated.
“Lily get your bra off now before I tear it off you.”
She pulled the bra up over her head smiling.
“It’s a pull on.”
Ash levered off his boots and pushed off his underwear, jeans and socks. His cock was twitching. ‘It’s been too long Ash. Take it slow.’ He told himself that, but he was desperate to plunge into Lily, and feel her tight and wet surrounding his cock.
Lily gazed at him.
“Ash I just want to look at you for a moment.”
She ran her hand over his thighs and then between them, tracing her fingertips under his balls. She ran her hands over his stomach and his hips. She kissed the head of his cock when it bumped against her chin, and then she took the length of it into her mouth again. Ash moaned.
“Lily I need…” He didn’t finish. He was gentle but firm and took her head away from his cock. He sat down onto the sofa pulling her to straddle him. She sank onto his cock, deep, deep, deeper and moaned throatily the whole time against his lips.
“That feels so good.”
He agreed but he couldn’t get the words out. He started to rock her and she thrust her hips. She rode him until he took hold of her hips and thrust hard into her.
They lost themselves in the sensation until with their mouths against each other’s face they both groaned out their orgasms.
Ash held her against him. His arm around her neck, he kissed her deeply.
Lily was tracing his shoulders and his back with her fingertips.
They stilled against each other, and their kisses were gentle, loving, sweet and addictive.
Ash felt better. ‘Things were working out after all. Lily had thrown herself at him when she opened the door.’ His sigh of relief was gentle on Lily’s ear and she nestled against his neck.
