I’m participating in the Weekend Writing Warriors hop, where a group of authors post 8-10-sentence snippets from their WIPs on their blogs. Fellow Boroughs author and new friend Paula Millhouse suggested this, and it seems like a good way to read some great writing and meet new authors. For more info, check it out here: http://www.wewriwa.com. The following is a snippet from my upcoming novel.
Luca sauntered a few paces toward the gate. Ripping Skylar’s gauzy dress off was exactly what he’d love to do. Turning the knob, he held the door open for her with an expectant look. She stopped and stared at him with teasing eyes and a sexy smirk. The girl was short, and he imagined how he would have to bend slightly to kiss her.
“You have my cell number on my card, if you want to talk.”
He noticed her eyes flitting to his tattoo. His gaze drifted to the light sheen of perspiration that nestled in between the soft cleavage of her breasts. She was about a foot away and her blue eyes, her pale skin and her pink lips were even more gorgeous up close.
Talking was the last thing he wanted from her.
The above passage is from my debut novel, which is coming out from Boroughs Publishing in the fall. Its working title was Uncovered, but we’ve changed it — more details on that soon, along with a cover reveal. Stay tuned.
