Long Distance Lovin'
Even couples living aboard space ships in the very distant future have to find ways to spice up their relationship. One of my absolute favorite scenes to write in Grabbed By Vicious takes a futuristic twist on the phone sex/Skype sex of today.
When Vicious sends Hallie on a luxurious week-long trip to see her sister in the distant space colonies, he gets a little antsy. Seeing his beautiful new wife on his screen gives him one deliciously naughty idea. It doesn't take much persuading to convince Hallie to give in to his
sinfully sexy idea…
***Excerpt from Grabbed By Vicious (Grabbed, Book 1)***
Vicious drummed his fingertips on his desk and stared at the vid screen as he waited for his call to Hallie to connect. He’d tried three times already but the satellites had been busy. It was late onboard the Valiant—he’d have to report for duty in less than five hours—but it wasn’t quite midnight at her hotel. He hated keeping track of time differences. Thank goodness there were apps for that.
The screen flashed green. He sat forward in anticipation. She’d been gone three days but it felt like a lifetime. Each call they’d shared had been quick and perfunctory. He was really hoping tonight’s call would be different.
Hallie’s grinning face filled the screen. “Vicious!”
“Hey, Kitten.” He smiled at her excitement. “How is your sister?”
“She’s great. Huge,” Hallie added with a laugh. “She’s having a girl, by the way.”
“That’s nice.” He wasn’t good at small talk, even with Hallie, but he tried. “The trip between the colonies went well? Were there any problems?”
“Calm down, Vicious. The trip was great. The hotel is beautiful, by the way. Did you know they have a spa? I let Bernie and Lenny talk me into going. It was so much fun—but I think kind of expensive.” She looked sheepish. “Sorry about that.”
“I don’t care about the money, Hallie. I’ve rarely spent any of my salary these last two decades. There’s plenty for you to spend. I’m glad you’re enjoying the hotel.”
“It’s nice but it would be nicer if you were here with me.”
His heart ached. “I miss you too.”
Hallie reached out to touch the camera on her end. Her fingertips filled the upper section of his screen. He reached out and placed his fingertips against hers. It wasn’t nearly enough but it helped to imagine her warm skin under his.
“We’re leaving the day after tomorrow. I think it’s an express transport ship. We should dock with the Valiant in twenty-six hours.” She frowned. “Or, at least, I think that’s what Terror said.”
“Where is Terror?” Vicious let his fingers drop from his screen. “I tried calling his room earlier but he didn’t answer.”
“Oh, I think he went out to check the perimeter or something.” She shrugged and waved. “You know how he is. Mr. Vigilant and all that.”
“Yes.” Vicious let his gaze roam his wife. “What are you wearing?”
Hallie laughed and blushed. “Vicious, behave!”
“I can’t. You drive me crazy. I am being serious, though. Is that one of my shirts?”
She nodded and touched the fabric. “It’s the last one you wore before I left.”
“Is that where it went?” He laughed. “I dug through our hamper for ten minutes this morning trying to match up all of my uniforms to be sent to the cleaners.”
“Sorry. I just wanted to be able to smell you while I was gone.”
Heat burned through him. Only Hallie could make such a sweet gesture seem so fucking sexy.
“Take it off, Hallie.”
“What?” She looked scandalized. “Vicious, no!”
“Take it off. Let me see you.”
“You’re out of your mind. I’m not getting naked in front of this camera.”
“It’s a secure line, Hallie. Now let me see you.” He made sure to use that gruff tone that made
