A Pirate's Six Sentence Sunday



Ahoy, me hearties! Kary's Six Sentence Sunday.
This six is from my current work in progress The Pirate Princess.


The noble Prince Petra is on mission to rescue his betrothed, a lady he highly regards but does not love. Restless and unable to sleep on the south seas, he paces the darkened deck and meets with the sharp point of a pirate's sword.


Petra turned to meet the intense gaze of two bright green eyes and his heart leapt within him at the feral quality of her presence. The siren’s raven hair blew in jagged wisps across her face. A mist surrounded her as if the heat she emanated transformed the damp sea air to steam.


Her vision roamed his body like hot hands and her voice slid into his mind like a lover’s fingers through his hair. “Oh, I don’t believe you are a sailor. Are you?” She used her sword to cut the ties of his tunic and fold it back to expose his heaving chest.




Hope my six leaves you wanting more. Thanks for stopping by. Please leave a comment and let me know you visited. For more great Six Sentence Sunday posts click HERE.

I love love love that your pirate is a woman, and it's pretty obvious that he is about to swoon at her feet. Awesome!

You betcha I want more! Great description of Petra's vision. Is it real or is it his imagination?
Here's my six: http://iousex.blogspot.com

Sandy --Charlee is very real and dangerous.

Yes - Lauri Petra swoons (and he really isn't a swooner) until he finds out she's kidnapping him for ransom and killed five of his men. He's chills to her after that.

Wonder what he gets to part with his sword?
