Hello and welcome to my blog, and to another sizzling week of My Sexy Saturday, the weekly blog hop where authors share seven (or so) sexy paragraphs from a published work.
This week’s theme is Our Sexy Tomorrow, and is all about those characters who are looking to their future, or perhaps reflecting on their past together. I decided to share an excerpt from Red Skye at Night, a current release of mine set in the Highlands of Scotland. Here, Harry is trying to convince Hope to return to Canada with him. He has a most persuasive style…
“Fuck the arrangement. Are you coming to Canada with me? Yes or no?”
“No. I can’t. No.”
“Wrong answer. Strip and lean over the bed. I’ll just have to thrash some sense into you.”
“What? You can’t mean to…”
He turns, opens the drawer, and takes out a long, narrow, flexible cane. He holds it by each end, bending it as he walks slowly towards me. I’m rooted to the spot, staring at the instrument in his hands.
“You intend to use that? On me?” My voice has dropped to a horrified whisper.
Harry nods. “I do. Strip and bend over. Then I’ll ask you the question again. If you still give me the wrong answer, I’ll lay ten stripes across your beautiful arse before you get another chance. I fully expect your attitude to have changed by then.”
“You can’t do this. You can’t force me to, to…”
“I’ve never forced you. I’m not forcing you now. But you’re sorely trying my patience, girl. It won’t go well for you if I have to ask you a third time to strip.”
Here’s the blurb…
Two strangers, one outrageous proposal, and the journey of a lifetime. How far would you go? To Skye and back?
A random accident as a teenager wrecked Hope Shepherd’s aspirations to be an international athlete. Now working as a taxi driver, Hope is unsettled by a sexy Canadian she picks up at the airport. With his good looks and easy charm, he’s just the sort of man she can do without. But can she afford to turn down his offer?
He offers her a small fortune to drive him to Scotland, where he hopes to discover his ancestral roots. And not just anywhere in Scotland. Harry McLeod wants to go to the Highlands, to the Isle of Skye.
He is persistent, and Hope needs the cash. But what are the real terms of this outrageous deal?
Harry McLeod desires Hope, and the attraction is shared. If he can get her in his bed—or better still, tied to it—will she allow him to peel away her protective layers to release her inner submissive? Harry is stern, uncompromising, outrageously sexy and utterly irresistible. How will Hope respond to his dark brand of sensuality? Does he offer more than a generous fare and a few erotic encounters?
When they reach Skye, a feud spanning four generations challenges all that Hope thought she was coming to know about submission. Will it be enough to convince her that this could be a relationship to stand the test of time?
