Awakening a Witch #11 - Six Sentence Sunday

For earlier excerpts from my historical paranormal romance work-in-progress, Awakening A Witch, click here.


*****

Set Up: This excerpt follows shortly after my last post on this story. Alex rescued Mattie from a storm, and now they are alone in a little cottage. Mattie is incredibly cold, and her gown is soaked. Last time, he gave her his cloak, but is still suggesting that she remove her gown.

My Six (This is in Mattie's POV, and Alex speaks first.):
 
          "I will not look when you unclothe."  When she crossed her arms in response, he shook his head.  "Or, we could wait until you catch a fever, then I will have to remove your clothing for you.  Have you forgotten you were already ill today?"
          "You wouldn't," she said, but, of course, she knew he would.  To make his point, he let his gaze drift down her body.

Have you found any website to replace SSS?

Ahhh, a "practical" hero.

I think she'll have to give in soon... SSS is almost finished! LOL

patonlorraine said...

Thanks, Sarah! He's not making her inner conflict any easier, is he?

Thanks, Joyce! It is starting to get a little charged, isn't it? It heats up a bit more before they get cottage. ;)

patonlorraine said...

Aw, thanks, Charmaine!

Thank you so much, Teresa! You've made my day!

As for SSS - no I haven't. I signed up for Skye Warren's list, but I'm also interested in seeing what else is out there. Have you found something else?

And, thank you! I've been having fun re-vamping my site.
