Six Sentence Sunday

My six this week are from my recently release fantasy romance, Through the Rabbit Hole, from Astraea Press. The hero, Lorh, had just introduced Natalie, the heroine, to a rather odd denizen of his otherwordly garden.

“Your hand, it’s in one piece?” His teasing voice came from above her head. She spun toward him so quickly she nearly got whiplash, but halted when her nose almost hit his chest. Yikes,
when had he gotten so close—and so tall?

He picked up her hand, which by now lay limply by her side, and made a show of inspecting it. “Your hand, my lady, is fine?”

Intriguing six. What happened to her hand? His voice sounds really deep (to me) and very disconcerting. Good imagery.

got me hooked.

Interesting six! I also just read your blog post on sweet romance and agree with a lot of what you have to say. For me it's not as much how explicit the sex is once it happens, as when the couple's romance, from the first meeting, seems driven entirely by lust. If I don't see the non-physical chemistry as well, a friendship forged by working together against some adversary or the great banter of a "marriage of true minds" I have trouble believing their HEA. I mean, what are they going to do in times of illness, babies that just. won't. sleep. and so on when the towering sexual passion takes a holiday for awhile? What are they going to talk about over the dinner table every day?

Was it something he drank? lol Loved this six. Congrats on your release.

Great snippet!

I love how he surprises her and that wicked little edge to his concern. Very nice.
I also agree with your post on romance and sex. I like the whole gamut of sex scenes (from sweet to erotic), but sometimes it seems like characters are more focused on screwing than plot. I miss the subtly that makes a wonderful sexy relationship. To me, a great sex scene is about sensuality and has more to do with the emotional than the physical.

Thanks, everyone, for your comments!


Cate--no, he's quite sober. He often talks in a whimsical, confusing manner to the heroine. He's fey, afterall, and does have some secrets to hide from her for the time being!

Jenna--his voice, his appearance, it's all very disconcerting to the heroine--but in a good way! Nothing bad happened to her hand. She just shook hands with one of the residents of the garden who technically doesn't have hands!

Monica and Susanna, I couldn't agree more with what you both said. A scene of any heat level needs emotion (other than just pure lust) driving the sensuality. For me that is sexier than any description of what 'part a' does to 'part b':)

Magical, sexy, flirtatious men. Sigh. My favorite.

Gem Sivad said...

I agree with what they said. :) You have given him a very sexy voice. Nice.

AllureVanSanz said...

Great six.

Best,
