Six Sentence Sunday: We're here for... Once Upon A Stormy Night (A 1NightStand story)

Hey beautiful people!

Beautiful sunshine but absolutely blisteringly cold right now. An anticyclone in the region, blowing a blustery, bite-your-skin cold wind outside. Thank goodness we're inside, snuggled in a comfy wrap, with a hot drink in our hands. I dunno about you, but I love, love, love to read when the weather is like this. Good thing it's Sunday, innit, and time for Six Sentence Sunday? :)

I've been remiss in visiting the blogs these past few weeks. Was on a huge writing deadline, that I managed to kill on Friday. Back to 'relatively' normal now, and I'll be dropping by later to see the snippets everyone's posted. Sorry to have been such a cow, SSS peeps.

Back to today's posting, we're still with my 1NS release, Once Upon A Stormy Night. Lars and Simmi are inside the villa for their one-night date. Simmi doesn't want to know who he is, while Lars has recognized her as a business partner. But he wants the disclosure from her - remember, he asked her why last week?

I'm moving a few lines from that exchange. Lars has realized he shouldn't frighten Simmi, and is using another tactic. Yes, he's gone all gentle and caring...


'...
“Answer me,” he said in a soft voice as he dipped his face to hers, and the hair at her temple tickled his nose.
“You—” she gulped, the sound audible in the hushed interior, “—you know why we’re here.”
He reached out, touched a lock of hair, and tucked it behind her ear; her breath hissed when he brushed his finger in a light swipe across her temple.
“One night of pleasure – is that it?” he murmured against the shell of her ear. Then, he blew warm, moist air on her earlobe and the delicate skin of her neck underneath.
“Yes,” the word came out as a moan.

...'


Don't forget to check the SSS list, and especially the following peeps - Jessica E. Subject, Siobhan Muir, Mae Clair, Tonya Burrows, Lorraine Paton, Sue, Monica Enderle Pierce, Babette James (thanks ladies for dropping by last week!).

Hope you're all having a lovely weekend!

From Mauritius with love,

Zee

Yep, I love to read when the weather turns foul, but I'm on the opposite side of the world from you and it's still foul, just really, really hot! :D

Hot six you got here, Zee. And thanks so much for the mention. You rock. :)

I liked this moment when she drew enough courage to say what she wanted...

Elin Gregory said...

Tender but determined. You have to like that in a man. :)

Mae Clair said...

I'm glad you're safe and snug from that storm. It makes me think of the storm in "Once Upon A Stormy Night."

This was a great six. I read "Once Upon A Stormy Night" last weekend. It was the first 1NS story I've read and it did not disappoint! I loved your skill with the premise and your use of setting.

I fell in love with the characters, melted over the romance, did some nail-biting during the conflicts, and came away immensely satisfied. It's such a treat to see a snippet of the story here. Thanks for such a pleasureable read. "Once Upon a Stormy Night" was a gem from start to finish!

I think she hears him. What is it about blowing in the ear? OMG! Melt my heart. And, if she's angry at him, that's a tough one. Swoon.

Lovely six. Sigh.

Zee Monodee said...

Lol, Carmen! Not sure she will be able to resist him :) I love the tension these two created. xoxo

Zee Monodee said...

Patricia, the 1NS deal is just for one night... but love inevitably finds the couple during that night :)

Zee Monodee said...

Lol Gemma - one night is definitely not enough, especially with a hot hunk like Lars :) xoxo

Zee Monodee said...

Thank you, Cara! XOXO

Zee Monodee said...

Thanks Cherie! I had fun with these two; they were just so attarcted to one another! *hugs*

Zee Monodee said...

Sue, definitely more than one night is warranted here :)

Zee Monodee said...

Lol Monique - it definitely turns to more, indeed!

Zee Monodee said...

He's smooth, innit, Monica? :) That man makes me swoon *grin*

Zee Monodee said...

Hope the heat lets up a little, Siobhan. I know - send some my way, will ye? :) xoxo

Zee Monodee said...

Thanks Angela. She slowly comes into her own with him in this story :)

Zee Monodee said...

Exactly, Elin! Gotta love a man who knows what he wants and how to get it with a gentle touch :)

Zee Monodee said...

Wow, Mae - thank you!!! I am soooo glad you enjoyed the story! XOXO

Zee Monodee said...
