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. Everybody enjoyed the kiss so much last time I thought I’d put another up. ;)
Skin remembered skin. And her mouth opened against his with the ease of tender familiarity. She didn’t really know him anymore, but her body remembered every inch of his, every touch, every breath they breathed together, every feeling.
His mouth was soft and warm as his tongue swept into her mouth. Heat pooled between her thighs, a greedy, selfish want for all he could give her.
Don’t start this again. But she wanted to give in, to let go, to lose herself to him. I don’t care, I don’t care…
(Scene has been slightly tweaked to fit in 8 sentences)
Hope you enjoyed! :)
A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S FLING is currently available in these locations with more retailers and formats coming soon:
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.
