I use Grammarly’s grammar check because I don’t want errors to interrupt the flow of my stories.
Every Saturday, a group of talented authors post 7 words, 7 lines or 7 paragraphs from a published book or work in progress. You can read some other My Sexy Saturday author posts by clicking here. My excerpt here comes from my October 7 release, Seaside Seduction.
First, here’s the blurb.
Wealthy defense systems CEO Nicholas Gallero spots a mysterious woman in the Sea of Cortez while whale watching from the patio of his Cabo San Lucas mansion. When he realizes she’s in trouble, he rushes to save her. He’s instantly attracted to the voluptuous dark haired Selena Gomez. When Selena says she doesn’t remember how she ended up in Cabo, he invites her back to his house. Business as usual ends and his suspenseful romantic adventure begins.
“Just wait a second. I want to brush off some of this sand.” She turned and looked over her shoulder. Sand coated the back of her body like breadcrumbs on a fish filet.
I found myself unable to blink as she raised the fabric covering the rounds of her buttocks. Her delicious, shapely flesh bounced as she brushed at clinging grains. Lucky suckers.
Once she finished the task, she leaned into me, allowing me to support most of her body weight. “Okay, I’m ready. So you own a house in Tucson, too?”
I liked the pressure of her soft curves at my side, the tickle of her hair brushing over my skin in the breeze. My insides smoldered in delight. I wondered how I’d focus on work with Selena around. “Yes. My main residence and corporate headquarters are in Tucson, but I escape down here whenever I can.”
Selena frowned. “Do you always pick up strange women on the beach?”
I smiled, hoping to put her more at ease. “Only when they’re drowning. To be honest, I usually work longer days here than I do at my office. Modern technology makes it pretty easy to work twenty-four/seven anywhere. I have a hard time prying myself away from the phone and computer even on the best beach days.”
Her rosy lips looked so tantalizing, puffed up in a pout. “I obviously messed up your schedule then. I’m really sorry.”
“Don’t be. I didn’t tell you about my schedule to make you feel guilty—I was just trying to prove to you that I’m not some reckless Don Juan.” Although if she happens to be craving some hot sex, I’m definitely up for it.
As lewd thoughts raced through my brain, I wondered if I should warn the woman to run for her life. For all you know, she might be married. I reined in my impulses. Despite the heady attraction I felt for her; I was genuinely worried about Selena’s plight. The woman intrigued me. She was such a contradiction—beautiful, vulnerable, with an apparent inclination to do off-the-wall things. She thinks she might have straddled a motorcycle and taken off down here?
