My Sexy Saturday ~ @oddlynn3 #MySexySaturday #MSSAuthors #LynnCrain

Welcome to week 103rd week of My Sexy Saturday. This week’s theme is A Very Sexy Time. Once again, I feel that all my stories have some very sexy times in them. However, I think this one has a very unusual setting for a very sexy time. The scene I’ll be sharing today takes place in a barn. Not just any barn but one from the 1880s. Some reminders first…

Don’t forget, my blog is always hopping with Monday’s Austria Scoop where I talk about Austria and Tuesday’s My So-Called Writing Life where I talk writing and life. Both can be incredibly boring or incredibly exciting. Some weeks it’s a little bit of both. Last week I talked about an Austrian wedding for the Austria Scoop and somehow, My So-Called Writing Life post never showed. I had apparently scheduled it for this week. I really shouldn’t work when I have a headache…but check out the blog as I might just cover that.

Today’s story is one that has a very special place in my heart. I know you all are tired of hearing just how much I love Scotland. I do and really wish I could live there. This story has won awards and is just an all-around great story about a woman doctor whose husband is haunting her to move on with her life. Here’s the setup:

Maggie Grey had wanted to be a doctor all her life. She achieved her dream along with her husband, Justin. Together they planned to build a clinic on his ancestral home on the Isle of Skye in Scotland. But women doctors in the year 1882 didn’t have many options and even fewer if they were widowed like she had been recently. Arriving in England to visit Elizabeth Blackwell, founder of the London Medical School for Woman, she is discouraged to find that the only real health care on the remote Isle of Skye will be herself, a few aging doctors as well as veterinary doctors.

But she must build a clinic there to escape her memories and fulfill her late husband’s dream. Maggie goes by train and boat to the rather bleak Isle of Skye. The island is almost as barren as she feels and she isn’t sure if she can even fit in. Add the fact that her dead husband is haunting her with the request for her to fall in love again and she knows she’s losing her mind.

But the people of Skye need her…and she is determined not to let them down...but they are slow to accept a widowed woman doctor. Now if she were married again…that would be a different matter…and her dead husband, Justin, knows just the right man for the job, Conall MacGryman, his childhood friend and cousin, a veterinary for the island. Now all Justin has to do is to convince Maggie to give the man a chance so she can fall in love again…for both their sakes.

Here’s my seven sexy paragraphs from The Haunting of Maggie Grey:

“Fine.” His hands shook from the cold and his fingers clumsy as he tried to undo the buttons.
Shaking her head, Maggie pushed his frozen fingers out of the way and undid each one as if it were a seductive dance. With the last one free, she walked around him and, standing on tiptoes, eased the heavy coat from his shoulders. Placing it next to hers on the cow pen, she turned, surprised to find he was right behind her. She leaned heavily into the wood, trying to still her fast beating heart.
* * * *
“Maggie,” the seductive whisper of her name brought her soft brown eyes to glance quickly at him. “Do not turn away from me, girl.” His hand curled completely around her head, filing his palm as if she were a small child, holding her where he wanted. He was so large and she was so small. Never had he felt like he held a fine piece of fragile porcelain. Winding his fingers into the silk of her hair, he slowly, he forced her to face him, gazing deeply in her brown eyes. “I am going to kiss yeu now.”
He lowered his lips to hers, devouring her bottom lip in one swoop. Nibbling at the edges, he gained access to her mouth and groaned. Conall did not want to scare her off. But he needed her in the worst way and he was sure if she would just press herself against him, she would feel his hard shaft, would know his body wanted her much in the same way he was sure she wanted him. They had danced around each other for two months, but the woman acted like a virgin instead of the widow he knew her to be. The deep red color of her hair should indicate her passion ran hot instead of the shyness she displayed with him on many occasions.
“Open up completely, girl,” he whispered even more seductively than the first time as he softened his mouth to stroke against her soft lips. He was surprised when it took little prompting on his part to get her to open her mouth as his tongue slid in.
Neither of them was naive as to what happened between a man and a woman. He had wanted her from the moment he saw her at the train station in her widow’s robes. He’d known she’d suffered a great loss and knew he must bide his time until she was ready to give herself to him. The storm had provided the perfect situation for them to be together and if she was willing, he would take full advantage of the situation.
He only prayed she felt the same about him as he did about her.

This story starts in Boston where Maggie is grieving for her husband and the loss of their life plans. She’s compelled by that dead husband to go to Scotland where the two lovers meet. Hope you enjoyed this little look into this wonderful story.
