Every Friday I share the first kiss from a book. This week it’s Who Wants to Marry a Cowboy by Abigail Sharpe.
This bachelor cowboy refuses to fall in love.

“I couldn’t get her to leave,” Riley said.
“So you kissed her to convince her to go?” Ainsley raised an eyebrow. “That always works for me.”
“No.” A hot gleam surfaced in his eyes and her breath got lost somewhere in the back of her throat. “Maybe I could explain it better if I showed you.”
He stepped closer. Her body urged her to back away from his unspoken challenge, but she held her ground even as her heart rate kicked up a couple of notches. He leaned down and his warm breath fanned her cheek. She swallowed her nerves and anticipated the heat. His lips pressed against hers in a kiss so flat and unimpassioned that a haze of confusion fell over her. What had happened to the pulse-pounding passion from last night?
“That’s what Jewel’s kiss felt like,” he said. “This is you.”
He nibbled her lips, tasting and teasing and probing until her mouth opened and her breath hitched. He didn’t stop, gently gliding his tongue around hers like a twisted vine. His large fingers captured the back of her head. His other hand wrapped around her waist and pulled her to mold to his body and she felt how much this kiss affected him. The intense pressure drained the blood from Ainsley’s legs and she went as limp as a wilted flower. He pressed against her with the perfect amount of pressure, one hand kneading her head while the other massaged the tight muscles in her back.
“Don’t leave,” he whispered.
