My Sexy Saturday # 7 - A Sexy Delight

This week's theme is all about the sexy delight. In Shadowed Passage, Kyley, a young woman who's suffered years of abuse, is now free and experiences the first stirrings of passion.
Taylor the ex-military psychic who has rescued her, vows to help her navigate her emotional triggers and guide her into and through a world of passion and carnal delight.

Excerpt from Shadowed Passage
     His deep velvet voice reminded her of the warmth his arms provided. Unable to hold back, she reached up to push a lock of hair from his brow, the silky texture a balm to her soul. The shadow of his beard chafed the side of her neck when he nuzzled.
     “Well, you have, but I know how you could make it up to me...” Sliding her arms around his waist and pulling him tight made his pupils dilate, almost obscuring the iris. She’d come to love the animalistic hunger which overcame him when she flirted.
     “We only have thirty minutes.” His eyes narrowed in sensual warning. A dare.
     “Mmm, I hear it doesn’t always take long...”
     “Sweetheart, I want your first time to be perfect. Not rushed. This is neither the time nor the place...”
     “Taylor, I want more.” With a gliding exploration, she let her fingertips smooth over the ropes of muscle and rib until, with pleading eyes, she pressed firmly against his chest. A low rumble under her touch betrayed her effect on him.
     Later, with fond remembrance, she’d revel in his response, but now she decided to take the challenge in his gaze, interlocking her fingers behind his neck to pull him closer. Exquisite tingling sensations filled her breasts as she rubbed against him...He may as well be equally frustrated.
“Always in a rush.” His groan preceded his gliding touch down her lower back to her derriere, pulling her tight against him. The evidence of his desire pressed firmly against her lower belly.

She doesn't have any latent magical abilities and she’s not the Artan. However, her allies aren't seeing it that way. Neither are her enemies. In fact, Hannah’s life is in jeopardy nearly from the moment she arrives in Aerisia. And becoming the Artan may be the only way to survive…

Shadowed Passage by Shyla Wolff

Tariffs paid on an ill-fated decision can last a lifetime.
      A young boy—tossed an impossible situation by his psychopathic uncle, father or sister, he must kill one for the other to survive.

Two decades later, Dylan has developed his psychic talents, trained by the military, learned the skills necessary to locate the family he’d abandoned as a child and kill the devil himself, Roth. On the day he’s discharged, his ex-boss offers assistance in locating his sisters, demanding help with one more mission in exchange.

Tori, a young woman weeks away from graduating with her Psych doctorate, is torn from her stable life and thrust into a world of espionage, warriors, and unexplainable phenomenon. The man she loves, Major Clannahan, attaches her to the unit charged with locating a terrorist cell. Dylan, leading the unit, draws her like no other. Yet the darkness buried in his soul will test her skills and patience beyond anything she’s ever known.

Kiera and Kyley, identical twins challenged by the extremes of evil yet remain pure of heart, both bound to their man with a love withstanding the tests of time and tragedy.  One a warrior, the other with a warrior’s heart, each wield formidable psychic talents, sought after by a psychopath and terrorist bent on destroying the country.

A group of psychic warriors, dedicated to fighting evil in the shadows, locating and helping others develop their paranormal talents without splintering society’s tenacious perception of reality.
These are the extraordinary people living among us, protecting and preserving our way of life. Courage and honor, duty and strength of will can sustain us for only so long. Eventually, we must find our own path forward, learning to open our hearts to love even as we risk the ultimate pain.

 “The choice is yours, boy, but understand—not deciding is making a decision. Do it before I make the decision for you. Only difference is, I won’t kill one, I’ll kill them both. Father or sister. You have all the power.”
     Roth kept his tone calm and gentle. The evil coiled tightly within warmed his soul. He fancied the boy killing his father, silently rooting for the infant to survive. He could have lots of fun with her over the coming years.
     The boy’s father would die either way. He’d bound and beaten him just for fun.
     “Daddy? What do I do?” Tears streamed down Dylan’s face, sobs racked his entire nine-year-old battered frame. His gaze slid from his father to his baby sister, now held by Roth. When he looked back at his dad’s bruised and bloodied face, he cried harder. His dad’s eyes were swollen almost shut.
     The gun shook uncontrollably in the boy’s small hand. “Daddy?”
     Boredom shadowed his mind as the excitement of the climax dimmed with the child’s indecisiveness. His gaze wandered out the window above the kitchen sink.
     In the back yard, a massive, wooden play structure stood, complete with swings, tunnels, overhead ladder, and a slide. How extravagant for just two children, one still an infant. His sister always belabored the little things. Shame she’s not present to witness this. He would’ve found this even more amusing.
     The blond haired infant cradled roughly in his left arm actually cooed at him. Disgusting. If he kept this thing, he'd have to hire a nanny. Still, the thought of it growing up with half the powers his sister enjoyed years ago made the brat worth the trouble...If she survived today. He sighed.

* * * *
     “Dylan, son, it's okay. You’re going to be all right. Look at me. Remember how we played catch this morning? When you think of me, you’ll remember how we played ball today. Okay, son?”
What else could he say in this horrific situation? His own psychotic brother-in-law was forcing Dylan to commit the most heinous act imaginable, choose between patricide and sororicide. Roth had always been the canary in the crazy mind but even Devon hadn’t seen this coming.
     “Awww, isn’t this touching?” Roth muttered, no doubt weary of his twisted game. “What a little wimp. I’m growing tired of your indecision, boy. I think I’ll just slice this little bitch’s throat. After all, she’d probably just grow up to be a carbon copy of her mother, stubborn and willful. Wouldn’t want more of that in the world, would we?”
     “Noooo, please. Please don’t hurt her! She’s just a baby.” Facing where he knew his son to be by the sound of his sobbing stifled his thoughts. “Son, I know this is the hardest thing you’ll ever do, but you must. Please. It’s all right. I love you more than anything.”
     Dylan retched, fumbling and almost dropping the Glock 9mm pistol. It probably felt like the heaviest thing he’d ever held, certainly his first time holding a gun.
     His small frame trembled, tears streamed from his eyes, hair matted to his face. Red, swollen tissue marred the right side of his face, the result of Roth’s cold temper. The kitchen table supported his slight weight as he leaned one forearm on its edge.

Meet Shyla

Of the many lessons life seems intent on throwing her way, the most important one Shyla’s learned is to take the time to enjoy family and friends. The flux and flow of changes aren’t something to fight, but adapt to with the best of your ability. One day’s heartbreak is often followed by another day’s triumph. The only barricades remaining are the ones we refuse to navigate. She hopes you’ve enjoyed this story. Shyla’s website,, will be updated as Dylan’s journey continues.

My Sexy Saturday week #91

This week's theme is all about falling in love regardless of the circumstances. Whether we've held that precious drive in our hearts before or perhaps it's the first time. What matters is that we're consumed by another soul. In Shadowed Passage, Taylor is a strong telekinetic whose always demonstrated complete control, personally and professionally, until Kyley sideswipes his life into a maelstrom of danger and desire. When Kyley decides to take a risk he deems too great, Taylor decides to change her mind, and the course of her life.

Shadowed Passage
 “Well, maybe it might be better to wait at least a couple of days. I don’t want to be distracted tonight.”
     “Mmm, okay. If you want to wait, we can.” Like hell.
     When he traced his fingers in a line from her collarbone down the V in her shirt, she squirmed. Her skin—soft and inviting, tortured his dreams for the want of her. His greatest wish was to lay her out completely naked, explore and touch every inch of her, drive her wild with aching need.
     “Did you like what we did this morning?”
     He slid the top two buttons open on her shirt. Her bra was little more than a thin scrap of lace as he reached inside to cup her breast. Hmm, good thing I didn’t see these lacy scraps before now...
     She groaned.
     “Is that a yes?” He knew maintaining control would be difficult but necessary. Her years of abuse necessitated observing and guiding their path, negotiating her triggers and responses. In the past three months, he’d become very adept at reading her. When it came to his touch, she no longer flinched. He couldn't resist.
