Grown-up love stories, because we're never too old for a little sexy romance…

Weekend Writing Warriors 8-Sentence Sunday


wewriwa_square_2Sunday’s come round again and here’s another snippet from Sex and the Widow Miles. We’re still in the chocolate lava cake kiss scene and Julie’s toes are curling as Will takes the kiss as far as he can with a granite countertop barrier between them. But then…he surprises her…

When I opened my eyes, he was staring at me; heat flared in his expression, his pupils were pinpricks of emotion, and he swallowed hard.

My libido shouted at me to grab him and haul him to the closest bed. When I met his gaze, I knew in that moment all I had to do was give him a sign and he’d make love to me right then and there. Dear God, I wanted to, more than I’d ever wanted anything in my life, but I didn’t say a word.

His breathing stuttered and his hands on my face shook. Then he surprised the hell out of me. He closed his eyes, and a deep breath later, tucked my tousled hair behind my ear and brushed his lips over mine.

“Good night, Slugger, thanks for dinner. It was great.”

Thanks for stopping by and please don’t miss the other Weekend Writing Warriors.   Head on over and check out the work of dozens of other writers. You’ll be so glad you did!

    Sometimes it’s best to do what libido wants. By the way, any scene that can be title Chocolate lava kiss scene is going bound to be awesome. Great job!

    Thank, Linda! It’s going to get worse because I’m not snippeting the next scene…it’s too big a reveal of the plot. I’m probably going to bring in a snippet from ONCE MORE FROM THE TOP next time…I’m mean, I know!

    Nice eight. Makes me like this man even more. I like his restraint and apparent thoughtfulness, doing what’s best for her and being patient.

    Thanks, Skye! I’m so anxious and thrilled and nervous and scared…no, summer needs to hang out a little while longer while I prepare myself for doing this thing!
