Historical Romance Writer: LUSH SENSUAL READS

 #MySexySaturday 13th September &  #SexySnippets 14th  September 2014

Every weekend, a group of us sign up at My Sexy Saturday and some of us at The Nuthouse Scribblers blog and post a sexy snippet: 7 sentences from a work in progress. Here’s mine for the week again from  Lily and the Mechanic.

It’s a historical novella set in London 1898.


It was hard to say how long it was before he lifted off.  She should move but she couldn’t even open her eyes, and really, how could anyone expect her to? The cab must be full of feathers after she’d clawed up angel wings in that white cloud of bliss.

Gentle hands worked to straightened her skirts. There was still no impetus to move and besides it felt good to have someone care for her, even out of courtesy.

“Thank you, that was most enlightening,” heat immediately rushed up her face at the absurd whisper. Idiot, she was  keeping her eyes closed, perhaps for the rest of her life.

  1. That last line really punched home the emotion. The “angel feathers” bit left me a bit confused but maybe that is because I write paranormal and took it literally!
