Seductive Studs & Sirens

I'm participating in the Seductive Studs & Sirens mini hop.

The idea is to post just 150 words to capture the imagination. Today, I'm offering a small sampling from my unusual Victorian polyamorous romance written with a touch of reader-interactive art history: Loving Leonardo - The Quest (book 1 in the series)

Setting the stage: Nicolas discovers a woman's kiss is very nice after all and contradicts a lifetime of knowing about himself.

Drawing close, I kissed her...a tentative touch of my lips to hers. Her mouth was soft and pliant and, unlike my male lovers, her chin and upper lip were void of whiskers. This discovery caused my kiss to firm. Wanting all, I slanted over her, dragging my kiss back and forth, forcing her mouth to open to me. Her sweet champagne tongue coiled with mine hesitantly at first, but this grew bolder the more familiar our lips and tongues became. For all our restrained beginnings, I could tell in her return that kissing wasn’t new to her. She knew how to kiss a man, god yes, she did. I craved to know this enigma, craved to comprehend this contradiction I was fastly discovering Ellie to be. She was both neophyte and temptress. It was her shyness that confused me. It came and went like waves lapping on the shore.

Here's the story
