Six Sentence Sunday

Six more from my contemporary romance 'Fragrance of Violets'.

Abbey has joined Jack in Paris, but he thinks she's still uncertain about their relationship. While she's in the bathroom getting changed, he tells himself he'll have to take thing slowly - until Abbey appears in a more-than-sex red baby-doll outfit.



“You like?” she asked teasingly.

“Like is an understatement.”

He stood up, started towards her, then stopped, letting his gaze travel the whole length of her. “Jeez, Abbey, I don’t know what to say – “

“Then don’t say anything. Just kiss me and take me to bed.”

'Fragrance of Violets' is available from Whiskey Creek Press and Amazon.
If you'd like to find out more about the Lake District, where most of this contemporary romance of forgiveness and renewed love is set, do look back at my A-Z Blog Challenge posts for April.

  8. Thanks you, all. You're right, once Abbey makes up her mind about something, she goes for it! And Jack's certainly not going to say no!

  11. I loved this part of the novel. You gave me a "free" trip to Paris with that one (which, as an armchair traveler, I COMPLETELY appreciated). This is a great book and a fun read.

  21. Thank you all for your comments!
    So glad you all like the idea of Jack being dumbfounded by the turn of events and Abbey taking charge! She knows what she wants now - and he isn't going to say no!

  22. Cara, it's interesting that you think there's something sweet and innocent about this scene. I think you're right (mainly because I know what led up to this scene). It'a actually a huge turning point for Abbey.

  27. Oh man, his hesitancy would make me nervous. Fun six, Paula. :)

  28. Thank you all - anddon't worry, Siobhan, she's know his hesitancy is simply because he's stunned at something he wasn't expecting at all!

  29. So much for her not being ready. (laughs)
