Weekend Writing Warriors-Danger by Dalliance Snippet 11
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.
This will be the final snippet from Danger by Dalliance, a historical erotic menage with steampunk elements. This comes shortly after last week’s snippet. Everything has been set in motion. Sarah will pose, nude, for Archer’s “housemate” in exchange for the money to pay off the evil tax collector. She should be frightened and worried for her reputation. Instead she is this…
““Would you like me to call you a hansom, Miss Rigdon?”
“No thank you, Jennings, I feel in need of fresh air.” She was only capable of a short smile before she stepped outside. Her heart raced and her knees nearly buckled.
She had only one problem. Sarah had no idea if this weakness was due to worry or excitement. The thought of spending more time with Warren Dorvee, the idea that Archer Latimer would be close by should make her shiver with dread.
Instead it made her tingle.”
And this is the end of Chapter One. I hope you enjoyed our little excursion to Victorian London. One of the highlights of my week was when I stumbled across a 5 Cups Review (the best they give:) from Regina at Coffee Time Romance for Danger by Dalliance. She called it “HOT! HOT! HOT! (ice water was involved” and “one of the best steampunk romance novels she had ever read”. Let’s just say that was pretty epic for me;).
Next week I’ll either share from my WIP Tangled Redemption or from one of the other sci-fi books.
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.

Lol, thank you;).
I’d say she understands herself pretty well and you’ve set up the situation nicely for things to just keep getting hotter. Great excerpt!
Thank you, Veronica.
I think I need this book.
LOL! Thank you, Eleri, the greatest compliment ever;).
Oh boy…she’s a bit hot and bothered. And you aren’t sharing anymore…so onto the TBR list this will have to go.
Lol, thank you, Millie;).
I’ve downloaded this—it’s going to be my reward for getting my stupid synopsis done!
I hate synopsis writing, too, although I hate blurb writing even more. I hope it goes well and that you enjoy you reward. Thank you;).
Nicely done, Tina. And kudos to the last line! Perfect way to end a chapter. 🙂
Thank you, Teresa.
I’m a little tingly too. How cruel to end the snippets here. Guess I better buy the book!
Lol, thank you, Alexis;).
It’s making me tingle too! I’ve loved the weekly snippets from this book, Tina! Thanks so much for sharing! 🙂
Thank you, Evelyn;).
oh-ho! So she has more than one reason to accept the modelling job 🙂
Well, she’s decided they’re better than the tax collector. Now she’s starting to feel interested.
Dynamite, Tina. Best wishes with all your writing.
Thank you, Charmaine;).
Well, she’s committed, so she might as well enjoy it, right?
You would think so;).
OK, you’ve convinced me! I need another Tina Christopher book in my life.
Lol, thank you, Nancy!
