Happy Sunday, fellow Weekend Writing Warriors! I’ve got another snippet from my new release, a contemporary romance called By Hook or By Crook. Here’a brief scene with the heroine, Ivy, an art history student, as she’s studying a medieval engraving by Albrecht Durer:
Although she’d spent years studying his work, the incredible intricacy of Dürer’s
illustration still held her rapt. “Adam and Eve,” she whispered, naming the engraving’s subject. The legendary couple stood amid the garden of Eden, with exotic birds and wildlife clustered around them. Both were nude except for a few strategically placed fig leaves designed to protect fifteenth-century sensibilities. Between them, an apple-wielding snake hung from a nearby branch, tempting a fair-haired Eve to accept the fruit from his mouth.
“Don’t do it, Eve, it’s not going to be worth it,” Ivy murmured, earning another portentous cough from the security guard. She smiled at her own whimsy, adjusting the small pair of reading glasses she wore for work. The fruit of sexual knowledge was overrated, especially when you considered all the problems it caused.
