The Weekend Writing Warriors share  8 sentences over the weekend. Here’s mine for the week from the beginning of The Veiled Heart.


“This seduction really isn’t necessary,” her eyes flashed up, through a space in the veil and looked into his.

He gripped her waist, tugged her closer to his chest and laughed that fortified, viscous sound. It slid over her skin in the same way his hand was gliding over her body. Every touch sending ripples out into a desolate past.

“What?” he must think she was so foolish.

She wriggled to get up but he didn’t move. Nor did he mock her, instead his touch continued to meander over her body in long, slow, rhythmic strokes.

“A body needs to relax Lily,” his breath tickled her ear, “even when pleasure is solely in the pursuit of knowledge.”
