Love’s Culture 3: Love, Family, Culture by Angelia V Menchan
Multicultural and Interracial Romantic Fiction.
Sadia felt heavy in a most pleasant way. She and Mahad had been married three months and most mornings she woke to him making love to her and that day was no exception. Turning, on her side she saw Mahad staring at her with love filled eyes.
“Hey, what are you looking at?” She murmured.
“My wife and the mother of my baby… you are pregnant.” He said as he placed his hand on her naked belly.
His words permeated her and she realized she had to be. She had only had one period since the marriage and that was over two months ago. Laughter filled her belly and bubbled forth from her throat. The sound of her joyful laughter made him grin.
“I guess you are happy?”

Pushing her down, he covered her mouth with his, kissing her with fervent passion. She returned his passion, kiss for kiss, feeling the heaviness inside her grow and blossom into red hot pleasure.
