Well, today my work to do list got a little longer. Not that I mind in this case. What are my plans for today, you might ask. Well,
write (of course)
brainstorm for a new title (This one was added)
work on scene charts (something new I’m doing along with my plot worksheets. Since I decided to start this when I’m in the middle of a couple WIP, I’m playing catch up.)
Brainstorm for bounty hunter plot.
WIP Excerpt : Guardian’s Embrace
He released her wrist, but let his hand slide down to her palm. His thumb ran over her knuckles. She drew in a slow breath. She thought about pulling away from him, but not for very long. For some reason, she wanted to touch him.
Her hand lifted and she rested it on his chest. Her fingers flexed. She could feel the muscles through the fabric. The urge to push the fabric aside and feel the warmth and hardness caused her to hesitate. What was this? She’d felt attraction before. Most of the Aberrant males were gorgeous, but this… This was more. She felt drawn to Saber and Keir on a deeper level.
His hand brushed across her forehead. “This frown. You’re confused?”
She swallowed and nodded. Her hand moved slowly over his chest. She couldn’t stop touching him.
“You feel it, too.” His fingers brushed across her cheek.
“I… There’s something.” She bit her lip.
“Hey, don’t abuse that lip.” He tugged the full curve free from her teeth. His thumb brushed back and forth over the soft flesh.
Tingles followed that path. Why did it feel so good? She should ask that, but her mind focused instead on the sensation. If a touch on the lips drew that response, what response would an intimate caress create?
She leaned closer, almost without realizing it. Every breath strengthened the arousal building inside her. She couldn’t smell anything specific. It wasn’t the cologne, but something was definitely happening. He’d said “too” earlier.
