We’re headed toward the end of January and I can see Groud Hog Day and maybe a hint a spring on the horizon. In the meantime, this week’s #1lineWed THEME is **MELT**. Most of the melting done in my current WIP is caused by Sinjen finding all the sports where Sade is concerned. That’s kind of boring. With that in mind. I went digging deeper and came across this snippet that was a bit of flash fiction and yes, it is filed and will appear in Nikos’s book. Promice! In the meantime, a bit of background: Meloni is a research MD with the CDC. She’s been…seconded to Nikos and Klan Kolikikos for…reasons.
The stench burned Meloni Karras’s nose. She wasn’t about to breathe through her mouth because she didn’t want that oily taste saturating her tongue. There wasn’t enough ouzo in the world to kill that taste.
“What’s that smell?” She inhaled shallowly through the impromptu mask of her hand pressed over the lower half of her face.
“No really, what is it?”
“Scorched goblin. Really.”
She glared at the very sexy man standing beside her. Nikolas Constantine would make any woman’s motor hit the RPM redline. “Ha, ha. Very funny.”
“Doctor,” she corrected.
“Doctor Karras, I assure you that you will know when I am joking.”
Mr. Macho, Muscled, and Mental ducked into a smaller tunnel. Mel had to follow. She would have serious words with the director when she got back to the CDC. She didn’t do field work. And she damn sure didn’t do it with hot-as-hades dragon enforcers.
“You think too hard, Doctor.”
Now the guy was a freaking mind reader? He chuckled and the sound washed over her like melted chocolate. Oh, now there was a thought—her dipped in chocolate and him licking her up like a Tootsie-Pop.
“That can be arranged, Meloni.”
His gravelly voice rubbed her the right way, all the way to her toes.
He did. And she plowed into his back, her arms circling his waist in self-defense.
“When I start, you will beg me never to stop.”
Now there was a promise she’d make him keep.
And there you have it. Writers, who has melting words to share today? Readers, what Book Boyfriend/Girlfriend makes you melt? 😉
