Historical Romance Writer: LUSH SENSUAL READS

 #MySexySaturday 20th September &  #SexySnippets 21st  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.


Her chest tightened, the air wasn’t making it to her lungs;  they were so close together and the weight of him pushed her to the bench. She started to pull away then forced herself to hold still.

“Breath Lily, I’m here.” There was moisture on his forehead and the muscles in his neck strained as he held still.

He would stop right now if she asked, she had control, it was there between them.

Her body relaxed and she dipped her head in the briefest of nods, it was enough.

“We’ll go slow” his voice was soft, the squeeze of his fingers reassuring; this was nothing like the past.
