Six Sentence Sunday, Apr. 10

Here’s something from my unpublished MS, By Hook or By Crook. I’m currently in the process of querying agents about this one:

“It’s hard not to be jumpy around you when you keep getting under my clothes somehow,” Ivy said with asperity.
“Don’t worry. Nothing on the agenda tonight except a backrub,” Joe assured her. He said it mostly to allay her fears — he usually said that kind of thing to a woman just before he pounced — but he realized that he meant it. He needed to move slowly with a woman like Ivy, his instinct told him. He needed to test the waters, letting her get accustomed to what was between them. Tonight, he wanted to break down a few more barriers between them.

About Linda Morris

Linda Morris is a multipublished writer of contemporary and historical romance. She writes stories with heart and heat, and a joke or two thrown in. When she's not writing, working, or mommying, she's doing yoga, reading, working in her flower garden, or baking delicious things she probably shouldn't eat. A beat-up old copy of Kathleen Woodiwiss's "Ashes in the Wind" that her mom bought for her at a garage sale years ago was her "gateway drug" into the world of romance novels. Her all-time favorite romance writers include Laura Kinsale, Patricia Gaffney, Elizabeth Delancey, and Marjorie Ferrell. Current favorites include Julie Anne Long, Erin McCarthy, and Shannon McKenna.

    Backrubs can be dangerous–and usually lead to getting under the clothes! Someone once said, "Backrubs lead to front rubs." But who can resist?
