Weekend Writing Warriors-Danger by Dalliance Snippet 5
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. Warren has stepped out of the office again, leaving Archer and Sarah alone again. She has just blurted out her request for an early payment of her father’s royalties, but she will do everything in her power to stop him from finding out she needs the money because her father used the tax money for his latest invention. But this time Archer is not prepared to let her avoid him…
“She tilted her chin in that challenging manner of hers.
His temper flamed. It was bad enough that the little virgin and her voluptuous curves made him hard as a rock as soon as she walked into a room. She might look demure and meek, but deep inside her he sensed a passion that would set the world on fire if she ever released it; only he was sure she’d never done so.
Not that he ever got the opportunity to find out. She always looked at him as if he wasn’t worth her time, as if speaking to him was a strenuous task, and when he tried to engage her she excused herself within minutes.
And now she was asking him for a favor and still wouldn’t give an inch. Not this time.”
I am travelling back from New Orleans today, so I am not sure when I will be able to read everyone’s snippet. The Romantic Times Convention was crazy, insane and a lot of fun. It was amazing to meet some of my favourite authors. When I get back home I will have to get my bum in the chair and get working on Tangled Redemption.
Have an amazing week and as always Happy Writing!
Danger by Dalliance
Sarah Rigdon is desperate. Penniless with taxes due, she can either beg mercy from the ruthless tax collector or turn to the last man she wants to ask for help. Archer Latimer stirs desires no proper lady would ever admit to. Though their meetings always end in quarrels, she can’t deny the heat between them. When he agrees to help, Sarah thinks her luck has turned. But she should have known nothing with Archer is ever easy.
Archer and his lover Warren Dorvee have spent years searching for the right woman to complete their family. Both believe luscious Sarah is the one and now have a chance to pursue her. After all, the price of Archer’s help is for Sarah to pose for Warren’s latest painting. Nude.
But trust has to be earned and a crisis in London threatens their love. The three must navigate through lust, lies and secrets or risk being torn apart forever.
