Great writing last night on Top Secret Project #3! :img14
I’m working on the first (possibly only, since it’s a short project) love scene right now, & am doing something a little different than I’ve done before.
Now, don’t get all worked up; we’re not talking leprechauns or Martians or extra appendages.
But don’t get excited, either, because we’re also not talking uber-erotica or threesomes or (overly) offensive language. :img10
A lot of times, though, my characters’ relationships follow a very realistic pattern: sexual attraction…first kiss or maybe a lot of kissing & even a little groping…the on to the good stuff. This time, however, my hero & heroine are divorced, so they’re extremely familiar with each other, & get-to-know-you time isn’t necessary.
Which means I can get to the good stuff much faster. And in this instance, the good stuff is very good indeed.
Where the heck is the time going? How can it be the end of May already? (Wasn’t it Christmas, like, five seconds ago? :img11 )
But alas, it is, & so it’s time to vote in a new Hunk of the Month for The Dungeon sidebar! And we’re keeping them hot, sweaty, & shirtless for the summer. :img5
(Ready, Set, Sweat!)
So I just finished Erica Spindler’s Dead Run (good stuff; I love a compelling, edgy romantic suspense! :img32 ) & am also working on
Sleeping with the Fishes by MaryJanice Davidson. Mostly because I’ve already read two of the three novellas in her Dead Over Heels collection & need to read the first two “Fred the Mermaid” books so I can read the last novella & finally finish it altogether. :img4
But I’m still ready to begin another new read, & once again I’m torn… :img31
Keeping in mind that I may run across something completely different & begin reading that (because I’m nothing if not mercurial :img34 ), these are the books I’m currently eyeballing:
First on the “maybe” list is The Sweethearts’ Knitting Club by Lori Wilde. Do I dare read a knitting romance other than my own “Chicks with Sticks” trilogy?
Second is When She Was Bad by Cindy Kirk. I love this cover! Have been starting at it for a real long time now, & am wondering if it’s time to finally read the darn thing already. :img23
And finally, I’m back to thinking about Bared to You by Sylvia Day. Nope, I still haven’t read this one, or any of the others in the series. But I may be working on it by the end of the day. :img10
So what do you think? Which of these do you think I should gravitate toward? :img30
