Sand and Sin – Weekend Writing Warriors #8Sunday – April 10

wewriwa_square_4Spring had arrived in coastal Virginia and then we had some flurries earlier today! Hoping warmer weather is on the way. If you’re new to Weekend Writing Warriors  #wewriwa, it’s a blog hop where authors share 8-10 sentences of their work.

I’m continuing with with my  newest steamy release, Sand and Sin. Navy SEAL, Jax Taylor, takes leave after being injured on a mission and catches a military hop to Virginia Beach to see a buddy. TJ is night training and recommends a local SEAL bar called the Trident. As he chats with the lovely, green-eyed bartender Peri, she realizes he’s friends with TJ and asks why his buddy isn’t showing the hot spots.

Jax fiddled with his napkin and answered, “He’s jumping out of a C-130.”

“So, you just returned stateside today?”

He checked his expensive, matte-black, multi-function watch that would have marked him special-ops without their previous conversation. “About two hours ago.”

“Long mission?”

“Months,” he said glancing around the bar, then to her.

“It’s early, you still have time to remedy your just-back virgin status,” she replied with a smirk.

His gaze burned into her like a blue flame before asking, “Is that an offer?”

For the first time since working at the Trident, she considered breaking her rule, as she thumped her pen on her ticket pad. “Sorry, don’t mix business with pleasure.”

Sand and Sin – Weekend Writing Warriors #8Sunday – March 26

wewriwa_square_4

Happy Easter if you celebrate! Spring has arrived in coastal Virginia.  If you’re new to Weekend Writing Warriors  #wewriwa, it’s a blog hop where authors share 8-10 sentences of their work.

I’m continuing with with my  newest steamy release, Sand and Sin. Navy SEAL, Jax Taylor, takes leave after being injured on a mission and catches a military hop to Virginia Beach to see a buddy. TJ is night training and recommends a local SEAL bar called the Trident. Jax is chatting with the lovely, green-eyed bartender Peri, when she finds out he’s a friend of TJ’s she asks if he’s in the area to train. Some creative punctuation to make scene in ten.

“Currently in a holding pattern.” With a roll of his shoulders, he scowled and thumped his glass down. Not linebacker thick, he was more like a running back—built for speed.

“They call you GQ.” A Texan not rugged enough to be branded Cowboy and too handsome for Tex.

He sipped his drink, then cleared his throat and asked, “Did TJ share my birthday, too?”

“No, just a story about you chasing some bad guys through the streets of a South American country in your birthday suit,” Peri said and grinned.

“Touché,” he said and held up his glass then shotgunned the remainder of his whiskey.

Usually immune to her bar patrons, she was blindsided with a lust she’d lidded since her daughter was born. “Where’s TJ? Shouldn’t your buddy be showing you the hot spots?”
