Weekend Dirty Dozen No. 1 #WD12

Weekend at Wilderhope ManorI’m delighted to be joining the inaugural Weekend Dirty Dozen, which I found via their Facebook page, here. This week I’m sharing twelve sentences from my latest release, Weekend at Wilderhope Manor, which is a Halloween themed lesbian erotic story. So, without further ado…

The car trundled up the long driveway, the crunching of gravel beneath tyres the only sound as Stephanie and her girlfriend, Jenny, peered out of the windows at their surroundings.

Even at dusk the tree-lined driveway was impressive with perfectly maintained parkland, spanning for acres on either side of it. As Stephanie steered the Fiesta around a bend in the track, they both gasped. Their destination, Wilderhope Manor, had come into view and it was stunning. The Tudor style property was huge, with no less than three frontages visible from where they were. Chimneys with intricately built patterns jutted into the darkening sky, with tangles of ivy climbing parts of the manor, giving the place an appearance that was both beautiful and foreboding.

Presently, the driveway opened out into a gravelled area, which as far as Stephanie could tell, doubled as a car park for the weekend. Stephanie manoeuvred into a spot between two vehicles and killed the engine. As she turned to Jenny, she jumped, startled. Her girlfriend had leaned in close, making a scary face with her hands mimicking claws.

“Are you ready to be scared out of your wits, young lady?” Jenny rasped, wiggling her eyebrows and fingers theatrically.

    This was the opening that sold me on the story…I just love your descriptive voice, Lucy. You give enough detail for us to really picture the setting and mood, without going overboard with too-much detail. I’m so looking forward to snuggling in with this story next week, when I have a halloween reading binge 🙂
