Hello, everyone, from Judith Rochelle and Desiree Holt. We're going to be blogging today about kissing and we're going to share some kisses with you from our heroes and heroines. But first, a little background-about us and kissing. We're alter egos. Judith write contemporaries, romantic suspense and romantic intrigue, usually with a high level of sensuality. Desiree write erotic romances, both short and long, and they often cross into the suspense genre. We hope you enjoy our tidbits today. Please be sure to leave comments, because at the end of the day we will pick one person to receive a set of Ellora's Cave playing cards and another person to receive a set of Judith/Desiree magnets.

Okay, here we go. The kiss.

Kissing. Just the word alone can be exciting, anxiety-producing, and even amazing. On one hand, it's so simple. On the other, it's so complex. It can be a prelude to romance, the first taste of sexual foreplay or an expression of deep emotion. Kissing should be fun and feel good; otherwise, what's the point of doing it? And it is certainly one way to show someone how much you care for them.For some people kissing is the best way to express closeness. To show someone the intimacy of your feelings for them. Feel the romance blossoming between two people. The touch of lips, the tease of tongue, all are expressions of the sensations and emotions rushing through your body. Other qualities of a great kiss included eye contact beforehand, holding hands, and tenderness.
First kisses seem to be awkward for just about everybody. Being nervous and concerned about whether or not you're "doing it right" can certainly lead to awkwardness. Some people worry that they might not be good at kissing, and of course there is such a thing as a bad kiss. But we’re not going to talk about them today. We’re only going to talk about the kisses that send the temperature zooming, the body quaking, the blood heating….Oh, wait. I think that’s a line from one of my books!

I read this excerpt before and wanted more. So which book is this from??? I need to go pick it up.

Also, I have a book called The Art of Kissing by William Cane. Very interesting and it inspires when I'm dead in the water for a personal scene.

Kisses are always so interesting because you're left with the whispering thought...will there be more? Do I want more? YESYESYES. There is just something so intiguing about the very first one. If it goes deeper, harder and more hungry, more good stuff is usually within reach.

Great Post!

LOL! Well, it's a great line from your book, Judith!!

Excellent breakdown of a kiss. The intensity, nervousness, and lustiness can turn a kiss into a mind blowing experience. I once kissed a man twice my age (on an dare and when I was much much younger). The kiss floored me because I had expected yuck and I swear, with that one kiss, he knocked my socks off. I'll never forget it. Was the best one I'd ever (at that time) gotten!

Thanks for posting! Excellent information!

Judith Rochelle said...

Oh, ladies, kisses are the bestm aren't they? And the book where you'll find the line? One of those I'll blog about today.

Hi Judith/Desiree! I'm thrilled you're blogging here today at The Fine Art of Kissing Blog Spot.

I love what you wrote about kissing.

What do you think about the first kiss between the hero and heroine? Does that kiss immediately alter their relationship?
