This week’s contribution to Six Sentence Sunday comes from my historical romance, Winters Promise, one of my free short stories. To find out more about this book, and find out how to get your copy, visit the Winters Promise Book Page on my website.
The winter snow drifted outside the loft and the only sounds in the room were the ticking from the clock on the wall and the wind whistling against the windows.
It had been days since their first kiss, but every time Lindsey looked at Gabriel now, she pictured an eternity wrapped in red silk while this man made love to her. She could see her future in his eyes, nights of endless passion and pleasure she’d only dreamed of. No more formalities of trying to live up to society’s standards. No more endless nights of loneliness forced upon her by a husband who was too frail to love her. Months of craving for the simple pleasure of human touch flooded her body and she delighted in the knowledge that Gabriel could give her everything she ever wanted.
