Weekend Writing Warriors, Just a Touch contemporary romance snippet


Morning, Weekend Writing Warrior fans, and happy Mother’s Day! I’m switching it up a bit this week, and including a snippet from a Sedona-set spa story called Just a Touch. My heroine is waking up in the hero’s bed after their one night stand, which is a novel experience for her. She’s pretty modest and insecure about her body, too, as this snippet describes:

She was alone in the bed, if you didn’t count about fifty pounds worth of border collie. She sat up, clutching the sheet to her chest, and immediately felt stupid. Did she really care if a dog saw her boobs?
No doubt strange female boobs were a common sight around here. The dog probably yawned and thought, “Oh, goody. More ta-tas.” After all, she doubted she was the first woman Gage had ever brought home.

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.
