Today’s #1lineWed THEME is **ONOMATOPOEIA** which not so much a phrase as it is a device. Like, squee. Not that I’m excited or anything that NIGHT WISH is live on Amazon and Kobo. Yes, you can click on the title OR the really cool graphic and head over to buy it. Please note, the price will be going up in about a week. Or so. Anyway, I’ve been playing with graphics and here’s the snippet that goes with the graphic.
I STARED at the woman on the TV. Tall. Lithe. Defined muscles. Big smile and not even breathing hard. I had to be out of my mind—and bored brainless
“Just let it flow,” the personal trainer intoned, voice filled with all things sugar and spice.
“Ha. Easy for you to say,” I panted, suddenly craving a buttermilk spice muffin with pecans. I bent from the waist, attempting to follow the exercise guru’s every move. A feral growl froze me in place. Peeking between my legs, unable to breathe, I stared at the man standing in the doorway. All six plus feet of pure male wearing low-slung jeans and nothing else. This was so not fair. He had the body fat of a hummingbird. The cruel injustice of that fact was not lost on me.
“Damn, woman.” Wizard’s voice turned my insides to melted marshmallow goo.
I blinked. Rapidly. Until I got dizzy. Eyes closed, I reached for some equilibrium. Before I found it, he was behind me, a muscular arm around my waist, his groin pressed to my backside and glory hallelujah was he glad to see me. Bracing my hands on my thighs, I pushed until I was upright. His chest pressed against my back and I could feel the outline of every single one of his muscles.
“I want you, Pink.” Rough and ready. That’s how Wizard sounded as he growled into my ear. Growled!
My heart stuttered and black spots swam across my vision. Just the blood draining from my head, I told myself. That’s all it is. That’s all it could be. I did not have visceral reactions to strange men. Not even one as magnificent as this one. And that thought instantly cleared my vision and my brain.
So, any of you been there done this? Inquiring minds want to know? 😉
