Weekend Writing Warriors #31!

Good Sunday morning, friends! I'm sharing another excerpt from Crossing the Line today, continuing from where we left off. 

Here's the blurb:

Madison Kelly is an erotic romance author from Canada on her way to her first ever writing conference. Across the border. A trunk full of dirty books and dildos proves enough to amp up her nerves and make her lips flap faster than the maple leaf flag.
But she's not going anywhere until George Petropoulos gives the go-ahead.
The Greek god of a border guard has something other than national security in mind when he detains this particular citizen. He can’t help but be charmed by the juxtaposition between her stammering blushes and the racy books she writes.
A hot and heavy interrogation brings out her inner sex goddess, one that she’s been hiding in the pages of her books, and leaves them both wanting more. But will they be brave enough to cross the line again? 

And here's the excerpt: 

“Props,” she blurted. “The sex toys are props for my signing table, and the books are, uh, mine. I wrote them. I write…dirty books.”
“Like those ones they’re always babbling about on those talk shows?”
She shrugged noncommittally. “Something like that.”
He nodded. He even had the good grace to blush a little too.

Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to visit the other Weekend Writing Warriors!  

September is an eventful month in my family. Mom's celebrating her 61st birthday on Friday the 13th (eep, and cool!), Grandma's turning 90!!! on the 22nd (and we're having a huge bash for her), and my one and only brother will be the ripe old age of 33 on the 30th. So, essentially, I'll go broke buying all the presents I have to buy this month, which is great because then I can put off buying Christmas presents until mid December without feeling guilty. :D Anywho, that's all from me. Hope this month is full of fabulousness for all of you!

    1. It's always best to be upfront with the dirty stuff. Particularly if you get a male border guard. ;) Thanks, Anne!
