Weekend Writing Warriors #26!

Hello, friends! Happy Sunday and Happy August! Seriously? It's August already? Well, for once I'm not at all bummed about that because there are so many exciting things on the agenda for me this month, including meeting distant relatives for the first time, soccer playoffs, a family reunion, seeing the Cole Porter-inspired musical 'Anything Goes', and spending time with my best girlfriends. 

Oh, and there's always a little reading and writing thrown into the mix too. Today's excerpt is a continuation of last week's, only I've skipped ahead a few lines. 

Here's the blurb for Blind Faith: 

Faith Lawson is just your average, wholesome librarian with a dirty mind…until a chance encounter with a handsome stranger brings her fantasies to life in a frantic night of passion. But when he walks out her door, he leaves a piece of his past behind that changes everything.


And here's the excerpt! 

He ignored her blatant request, a wicked grin on his face. His eyes traveled around the room, appearing to take in every detail. “Where are all your books?”

Her cheeks flamed with embarrassment.

“Ah, I see,” he said, smiling. “You read dirty books, don’t you?” She shook her head in a vain attempt to save face. “Where do you hide them?”



Hope you enjoyed! Be sure to visit the other Weekend Writing Warriors, and have a spectacular day! :)

    Heh.

    Enjoy "Anything Goes!" Hmmm...that could be taken in a completely dirty way too, couldn't it? Cole, you dirty old man, you! ('Heaven knows, anything goes!')

  7. lol! So well written, Evelyn! It was like one of those "want to get away" commercials. Yikes. He owned her on the reading dirty books!

    Your blurb is wonderful, by the way. I'd pick up the book based on it alone.

  10. Never buy a book you're ashamed to have someone see you reading... which means you get to be brave or boring!

    I bet he finds her stash pretty quickly.
