WEEKEND WRITING WARRIORS - 8 SENTENCES ON SUNDAY

As I am a weekend-only writer of romance, Darrah is still having trouble ignoring Hale.

She leaned against a tree, halfway back to the camp. Before she faced her men, she needed to give herself a few well-worded orders. The man’s ability to reflect and intensify emotions was a biological low-blow. But, the Sarkisian’s range of subtle, hormone-enhanced scents were no more than perfume on a courtesan. The healthy glow of his skin was the bait. The shifting silk of his hair begging to be stroked was the distraction. And the warmth that surrounded him in his aura? That was the trap.

    1. Hi Frank
      Thanks.
      The challenge was finding the imagery that suited a natural leader and hunter to be thinking.

      I was trying to avoid the obvious while dealing with a strong woman on shifting ground and trying to understand why.
