Welcome to week 66th week of My Sexy Saturday This week’s theme is all about A Sexy Date Night. I’ve had a few in my time but I wasn’t sure if I had actual dates in any of my stories. I know that’s sad but a lot of my characters are thrown together in many different situations then they fall in love. Dating is part of the process only if you have time. I know that sounds odd but think about when you were dating. Sometimes you just hung out and did nothing special. Other times, you went to fancy restaurants and did all the things one would dream about when they date. Personally, I’m somewhere in between. I actually took my husband out on our first fancy date because he helped me with something that has long since been forgotten. That’s not to say we didn’t go out for many more.
This week in Austria was also between brrrr and pleasant overall. I’ve seen colder days and I’ve seen warmer days here but I must admit, so far it’s pretty good as we slide into winter. Today is so beautiful we’re going for a long walk somewhere…not sure where…but somewhere. LOL! Research and writing is still going on and I’ve been creative in more ways than normal.
Don’t forget Longmire this week as I think it is still trying to find a home. The Posse is doing great in keeping attention focused on finding them a place. They had a few more stampedes this week and had some good fun. A&E still hasn’t dug themselves out of the hole they’re in as far as I’m concerned. I did see a few shows that looked interesting on their network but decided to pass since I don’t count. Craig Johnson is still doing his tour with his book of short Longmire stories. I have to say, I do love reading them as it lets me know how important characters are to a story. The hashtag is #LongLiveLongmire and if you have a chance, check them out to see what Longmire has been up to this week.
Now back to our sexy date night. When I hear the terms date night, I actually think about the 2010 movie of the same name. The term date night in recent years has been associated with young parents who are keeping their love alive by setting aside time to be with each other. Sure, it can be about different things but that’s what comes to mind for today’s world. Well, I’ll be the first to say…I don’t have any stories in that vein…at all. Most of mine revolve around people who don’t have kids though there are a few in the future. Not that I don’t like children, I do, it’s just that I’ve never put out any books with those parameters.
My closest story to this theme would be A Viennese Christmas. Yes, it’s an amazing little Christmas story about first everything. Here’s the setup:
Sign language interpreter, Amanda Kranz, wants to find her soul mate but fears her chance has past due to the death of her childhood sweetheart. Finding sexy historian Henry Jager during an outing in her new home of Vienna, Austria, may have been a stroke of luck. When his ex-fiancée shows up just as their relationship starts to sizzle, Amanda must decide if standing up for what she really wants will give her lifetime happiness. Or will she be destined to spend her life alone?
This is one of my few self-published books and I enjoyed writing it immensely since I learned more about the place I currently live. It was a real eye-opener as I wandered the city in search of places for scenes to take shape. It gave me a new perspective on where I live. Don’t forget to pick up your copy today! Here’s my sexy seven paragraphs…enjoy!
Her low sensuous laugh filled the small hall. “I hope not. Thank you for walking me home and for a lovely night. I appreciate it.” She stuck out her hand and it stayed there for a moment, wavering before Henry took it in his much larger one.
“Nor am I the kind to kiss on the first date.”
“So that’s what this was...a date?”
“Not really but if it was...”
“You wouldn’t kiss me.” She kept her tone flat, not wanting him to hear her disappointment.
He took a step closer. “If I did it might go something like this...” Anticipation hung in the air yet he made no other move toward her. “I would start with a light caress to your face. Just a brush up the side of your chin. It would feel something like this...” His thumb tenderly rubbed the back of her hand with soft, gentle strokes. “Then I might lean in closer to you, to smell your enchanting perfume.” His face moved to just a breath away from her. “Close your eyes, Amanda.”
Her lids fluttered shut and her heart pounded. She wanted him and it had been so very long since someone had wanted her in return. His lips brushed her forehead and he let her go, stepping back. “I’m going to pick you up for dinner tomorrow night at eight. It will be our second date. Now, you never know what can happen on date number two.”
