Six Sentence Sunday #9



Hello everyone! I hope your writing week has been fruitful. I managed to get another 2900 words written on my novella. Next up: Crisis, Dark Moment, Climax, Resolution. Whew!

Okay, as promised, I'm posting several weeks of snippets from the good sister, Delilah's story in DIAMONDS AND TOADS: A MODERN FAIRY TALE, my hot and steamy contemporary romance romp. (Available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and All Romance eBooks. If you'd like to read an excerpt, click here.)
 

Gordon Laite illustration: Toads & Diamonds
Set-up: This takes place the same day they become engaged. Delilah Perrault, a slightly overweight but curvy (think Marilyn Monroe, Jane Russell), shy do-gooder has been blessed by a fairy with millions of dollars. Chas, the man she's been secretly in love with for ages has thrilled her with a proposal of marriage. Chas, very image conscious, considers Delilah a good friend, but is in desperate need of quick funds, so his proposal has an ulterior motive: he'll secretly borrow some of the money she's asked him to manage. He's just been (unknowingly) led by the fairy to the street where the dungeon of Delilah's assertiveness training dominatrix mentor is located...and discovered Delilah about to enter. He has no idea exactly why she's there or for what purpose. But he's about to find out...

He flipped open one side of her trench coat and got an eyeful of the getup underneath. His heart did a triple beat, sending a rush of blood to his groin. Heat flamed his cheeks. Lust turned to alarm before he managed to channel it into something he could deal with: anger.

           “What the hell do you think you’re doing?” He did a quick scan of the front of the house.
