Six Sentence Sunday #11



This is 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.) 

Set-up: Chas and Delilah outside her assertiveness trainer's dungeon. Chas caught Delilah about to go in, decked out in a sexy domme outfit. He's trying to wrap his brain around what his eyes are telling him, compared to what he's always believed about his shy, self-sacrificing brand new fiancee, while, at the same time, he's fighting a major libido charge.

Gordon Laite illustration: Toads & Diamonds
“Let me go, and I’ll explain everything.” Her tightly wound French twist had come undone, sending sweeps of dark sable hair over her flushed cheek and finely defined collarbone. When her rose-petal tongue darted out to moisten her bottom lip as she tried again to loosen his grip, his heartbeat kicked up again. He was so zoned-in on that cherry-slice mouth of hers, in fact, that he didn’t even realize he’d dropped his hand until it bounced off his hard-on. He sucked air into his lungs in a bid to gain control over his potent physical responses to her.

“It’s truly not as bad as it looks to you.”

  12. Very nice six! Lovely imagery and use of color. Love that "cherry-slice mouth" which screams innocence and wanton all at once. I think we can all agree it *is* as bad as it looks, but can only benefit him!
