Mid Week Tease: “…you’ve encountered Westbury’s ghost, then.” #MWTease

MidWeekTease2Hi everyone,

Welcome back to Mid Week Tease. I’m sharing another snippet from my paranormal erotic romance short story, Timeless Desire, which is available for just $0.99/77p. It follows on directly from last week’s.

Timeless DesireShe cringed, expecting a howl of laughter or similar to come from George. What she wasn’t prepared for was what he actually said. “Ah, perhaps you’d better come and sit in my office. There’s something you should know.”

With that, he moved his arm around her back and led her down a flight of stairs, through the lobby and into a room branching off the next corridor they entered. The room was cozy, containing a table and a couple of chairs, and a bank of security monitors on one wall. On the table sat a kettle and various drink-making accompaniments, a radio, a pile of books, a notepad and pen, and some magazines.

Ushering her into a chair, George flipped on the kettle and dropped a teabag each into two mugs. After enquiring how she liked her tea and adding the milk and sugar accordingly, he moved the remaining chair around the table so it was right next to the one Emily sat in. A couple of silent minutes passed as George waited for the kettle to boil, made the drinks and moved them to the relevant parts of the table. He then lowered his considerable frame into the seat and looked at Emily.

“So,” George said, absentmindedly stroking the outside of the hot mug in front of him, “you’ve encountered Westbury’s ghost, then.”

    Love how he’s rather matter-of-fact about it. That should take her for a loop. Great tease, Lucy. 🙂
