One Sexy Night ~ @oddlynn3 #MySexySaturday #Saturday7 #MSSAuthors #MSS80 #LynnCrain

Welcome to week 80th week of My Sexy Saturday. The week’s theme is One Sexy Night.  Nights are my favorite time of the day and it might be because there were years where I actually worked the graveyard shift. It was there, reading books on my breaks or ‘lunch’ hours that I knew writing was what I wanted to do all my life. And here I am.

If you have a chance, check out my Facebook author page for ways where you can find out more about my new releases and participate in contests, be on my street team and more. My assistant is going to be helping with it so that I’m not so spacey about it. And here’s why…when I am writing and doing research…my heart and soul is invested in it 100%. That doesn’t mean you aren’t important, it means that I only have eyes for the writing I’m doing. Everything else just fades away except that. I do have to apologize as it makes me look uncaring about you all. The fact is I care very much and want to make each of you happy with what I do. Hopefully, you all can understand that.

The weather in Austria has been good but some days are cold still. Right now I’m looking at the sun streaming in my window and the hubster is chomping at the bit to get out into it. And I’ve been writing. Again. Guess it’s shower time and out the door. After this post of course. LOL!

This week’s theme is about a night time romance or at least a totally hot scene involving the night. I have one story that I thought would fit the bill called A Tale of Opposites. It’s about two sisters and two brothers. It was part of the Sanguinary Seductions anthology published a few years ago at eXtasy Books but will become a stand-alone as soon as I get the re-edits back to them. The scene is one where they are setting up camp in the early evening. Here’s the setup and it is short and sweet:

Two brothers torn apart by misunderstanding, two sisters bound to them by fate. One extraordinary story of how they find each other, love and a mission to keep all of humanity safe.

This is another novella and like I said before, I love writing the shorter stories. I try to do that between the bigger stories and it enables me to write in a lot of different genres. Believe it or not, this is actually a paranormal story about vampires, witches, shield maidens and legends. Like many of my books, it will be found at eXtasy Books. Enjoy my snippet of seven paragraphs!

            Swallowing hard, I turned to look at him. “Look—you have been dragging me around for almost three weeks now and not once have I seen you take a life without provocation. Everyone you have killed would have killed you if they had a chance. Then there is the fact…” I trailed off not knowing if this would be a good or bad thing to say.
            “Why do you not just say it? I would rather know what you are thinking than have to kill you in the night in self- defense.”
            I smiled then. There would be no secrets between us. “Again, I am not stupid. It would serve no purpose for me to try and kill you. It would result in my death.”
            “And?” He stood there waiting patiently.
            I had never seen this man have patience in any form. “I have yet to see you feed.”
            His rapid intake of breath scared me and he tilted my head back to look into my eyes. “I have never seen anyone with violet eyes. Yours are quite unique and quite observant. I do not kill to feed and do not feed to kill. There are other ways to get what I require.”
            Suddenly, my heart beat rapidly in my chest, his nearness touching me in ways I could not fathom. Glancing at him sideways, I realized I had an attraction for him. It was something new, something I had not had in a very long time. There was something in the way he looked at me, the way he touched me that felt wicked and right.
