My Sexy Saturday #58 – A Sexy Valentine #MySexySaturday
Welcome back to My Sexy Saturday. This is where writers post either 7 words, 7 sentences or 7 paragraphs from their published work or work in progress. I’m sharing a snippet from my story, The Next Big Thing, which appears in the just-released Sexy Just Got Rich: Brit Babes Do Billionaires anthology, which is just $0.99/99p for a limited time!
“Oh?” Surprise seemed to be her default setting for the day. “You’re buying it for yourself, then?”
He grinned. “Yes. No point in lying now, is there? What can I say—the, uh, subject matter floats my boat.”
“Really?” The guy grew more intriguing by the second. And now she came to think about it, he was hot, too. Tall, just a touch wider than athletic, dark cropped hair, a couple of days’ worth of scruff, and browny-green eyes that seemed to sparkle with mischief. An image of him, naked and blindfolded and on his knees before her popped into Catriona’s mind, but he spoke before she could explore it any further.
“Yes, really.” A faint flush coloured his cheeks, and a responding burst of heat hit Catriona, only much lower down. He was adorable. “Sorry if that was too much information, but I figured since you’re here, that maybe we had that, uh, interest in common. But then, you never said you were buying it for yourself…” He tailed off, ran a hand through his hair and looked chagrined. “Sorry.”
“No,” she said, reaching out and touching his arm, “it’s okay. No need to apologise. You’re right—we do… I mean, I am buying it for myself.” Damn, now she was the one blushing. “I’m just not used to people being so honest about this kind of thing, especially to total strangers.”
“You’re right,” he said, holding a hand out, “I’m sorry. I’m Elijah. Pleased to meet you.”
Catriona took the proffered hand and shook it, trying not to think about how it would feel caressing her naked skin. “I’m Catriona. So, what—now we’re not total strangers any more, then it’s okay to overshare?”
