Welcome to week 84th week of My Sexy Saturday The week’s theme is Our Sexy Tomorrow and it was noted that this theme would mean different things for different authors. I chose to interpret this as showing that the couple in your book is working toward their tomorrow. Don’t forget to visit on Monday for Monday’s Austria Scoop where I talk all about the happenings here in Vienna, Austria and Tuesday for My So-Called Writing Life where I talk about what it truly means to be a writer.
This week, I’m using a story from my backlist. It’s the award-winning historic erotic romance, The Haunting of Maggie Grey. This is a wonderful story about an 1880s woman doctor on the Isle of Skye. Here’s the setup:
Haunted by the ghost of her husband, Doctor Maggie Grey goes to Scotland to fulfill their dream. Little does she know it includes Conall MacGryman.
This book is a novella and I loved writing it because Scotland is basically my most favorite place in the world. Yeah, it’s that cool. I hope you enjoy Maggie’s story with my snippet this week of seven sexy paragraphs!
She closed her eyes, it hurt too much to look at him as a dry sob burned her throat. “I am too late, am I not?” He lifted her chin and she refused to open her eyes.
“Too late for what, Maggie? I am not going to help yeu with this one at all.”
She slowly opened her eyes. “I am too late to say I love you. I have loved you for a while now and I was too afraid to admit it even to myself. But now I am too late because you are leaving.” His smile was slow, naughty and completely breathtaking.
“See, now that was not too hard, was it?”
“No…but why are you leaving?”
He gave her an intense scowl. “What did yeu expect me to do? Yeu had refused me over and over. I felt a change of scenery would be in order.”
Her heart sank as the pain knifed through her. She had lost him. “Were you ever coming back to me? To us?”
