Weekend Writing Warriors-Danger by Dalliance Snippet 4
Welcome to the Weekend Writing Warriors. Each Sunday we share 8 sentences from a current or finished manuscript. Click here for the rest of the amazing writers participating.
I am continuing to share snippets from Danger by Dalliance, a historical erotic menage with steampunk elements. It comes shortly after last week’s snippet. Sarah is sharing the reason for her visit with Archer when Warren interrupts them. Their combines presence has an impact on Sarah.
““Miss Rigdon, please let me introduce Warren Hugh Dorvee, a dear friend and housemate.”
Dorvee bowed, “At your service, Miss Rigdon.”
Sarah swallowed. Their combined gazes made her shiver. The office seemed unnaturally hot. Even in their somewhat casual state of dress Latimer and Dorvee dominated the room. She wanted to get up and touch them, rub her hand across Dorvee’s muscular abdomen and see if the dark hair on Latimer’s forearms, bared by the rolled-up sleeves, was as soft as it appeared.
These shocking thoughts pulled Sarah back from the brink.”
If you’d like to find out what happens next and don’t want to wait until next week, check out the excerpt here.
I am in New Orleans, so it will be late by the time I come around to everyone’s snippets;).
Have an amazing week and as always Happy Writing!

Looks like a book I would enjoy, on my to buy list.
Thank you, Melisse;).
It appears there’s no problem with attraction—if they can get that pesky propriety out of the way, they’re all home free!
I’m with Melisse—I’m so buying this!
Lol, thank you, Sarah. And that pesky project will be in their way a little way longer;).
The snippet establishes the mood very effectively, enjoyed it, great 8!
Thank you, Veronica;).
I don’t think propriety stands a chance! Very steamy. Have a great time New Orleans!
Thanks, Alexis. And propriety is really easy to knock over with the right men;).
I’ve read this and it’s fabulous! Really loved how the plot was laid out, sooo very clever. Oh and it’s flipping hot! Very jealous of Sarah!
Thanks, me too:).
Well, sounds like she likes both of them.
That she does;).
