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

Weekend Writing Warriors 8-Sentence Sunday


wewriwa_square_2I’m back from vacation and ready to “Warrior up!” It’s been a couple of weeks since my last snippet, but we’re still in the kitchen with Julie in Sex and the Widow Miles. Will has just kissed her and then walked out and she’s very confused and aching and well…horny…

I didn’t realize I was holding my breath until the door closed quietly behind Will, and I released it in a giant whoosh before I laid my forehead on the cool granite of the countertop.

Shit, shit, shit.

My heart still pounded, every nerve humming from that sensual contact. Good Lord, the boy could kiss; the man could kiss, because most certainly Will Brody was all man. I whimpered into the granite. This was not good. Not good at all. Raising my head, I cradled it in my palms and tried to gain some semblance of common sense.

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!

The first two books in The Women of Willow Bay seriesOnce More From the Top and Sex and the Widow Miles—release together on September 26, 2013. Watch for them!!

    He really drove her crazy, I wonder if she is going to fall for it or get her common sense and be more careful next time.
