Weekend Writing Warriors: An Inconvenient Kiss

better wewriwa

Today for Weekend Writing Warriors I’m posting an excerpt from my contemporary romance A Midsummer Night’s Fling about a pair of ex-lovers who are forced to work together when they’re cast as Titania and Oberon in a production of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

He kissed her.

No tentative kiss this time, his mouth pressed hard against hers. She slid her fingers along the chord of his neck into the softness of his hair. Opening for him, her arousal blossomed and shattered like a rose until the tingling heat was everywhere, until her veins seemed to flow with it. Yes.

Max groaned low in his throat, and deepened the kiss. His tongue swept into her mouth, and he nipped playfully at her lower lip, ravaging her mouth, tasting her.

(Scene has been slightly tweaked to fit in 8 sentences)

Hope you enjoyed! :)

The Story:

After dating her childhood sweetheart Max on and off for years, aspiring actress Nicola Charles is finally ready to move on. It’s time for her to focus on her stage career and stay away from Max–before he can break her heart again.

Max regrets hurting Nicola, but he wants another chance. So when his play loses its leading lady, giving Nicola the part seems like the perfect opportunity to win back his old flame.

But the course of true love—and a theater production—never do run smooth. As Max fights to reignite Nicola’s love, the onstage antics can’t rival the bedlam backstage: a neurotic cast, a prickly crew, and an evil diva of a director who’s got designs on Max.

As Nicola and Max battle to keep the drama onstage, Max can’t help wondering if their romance will end with the last performance. Or have the two of them finally captured what they’ve dreamed of all their lives? True Love.

Hope you enjoyed the snippet above, and don’t forget to check out all the other 8 sentence excerpts this week.
