On Sundays, I share tidbits of my works in progress as part of Weekend Warrior’s 8-Sentence Sunday. Since I’m still in plotting mode for my next project and gearing up for NaNoWriMo, today’s snippet is from my published urban fantasy TROPICAL HEAT, Book 2 of the Immortal Paradise series.
(Edited to meet the 8-sentence format.)
A handsome, albeit irritating, guest at the resort Jessamine works for has suddenly yanked her into a supply closet, where she's pressed against him in the dark...
After a few moments of trying to ignore a simmering stew of emotions—and the odd urge to whip out a tape measure to confirm an unbelievable suspicion about his male anatomy—Jessamine ventured a low murmur. “Who’s out there?”
Steve’s low rumble purred into her ear until something well south of her abdomen tingled. “Someone I’d rather not get into explanations with right now.”
Sliding a hand against his chest to steady herself, she tiptoed up to reach his ear. “Are we in danger?”
His whisper roughened as he gently plucked her hand away. “You might be, if you keep doing that.”
