Saturday snips are just the best and it's looking like a deliciously long list this weekend folks, so grab the popcorn, kick the family out and settle down and enjoy.
Last week I shared a snip from Mastering Maeve, my recently finished WIP. Maeve had been unceremoniously upended over Larry's lap for whopping him one across the face. A silly move as he was a potential investor in her grandmother's small hotel.
I'm giving you the next consecutive 8 sentences.
Maeve was too shell shocked to do anything other than yell. She kicked her legs furiously but he simply pinned them between his so she was lying across one knee and held down by the other. She thumped at his muscular thighs with her fists but she may as well have been a fly landing on his strong legs. She became aware that he was pulling down her leggings; the humiliation would have been totally unbearable except she just didn’t have time to deal with it at that precise moment. The urgency to make the thrashing stop was her most pressing need.
“Let me go, you bastard,” she shouted. “I’ll see you locked up for this.”“Let me remind you who cast the first stone,” he replied, still thwacking down on her behind.
It would appear that poor Maeve is a slow learner. Her temper got her into this and it sure as hell wasn't going to get her out of it!
Mastering Maeve has not yet been published but if you want few tasters to see the dynamics between this pair here is a link to previous snips.
