SIX SENTENCE SUNDAY

It's Sunday - and time for six sentences. This week from my new release, FLIRTING WITH ITALIAN.

Italy is all about food, about pleasure and when Sarah is invited to lunch with Matteo de Serrone, all that English restraint just melts away.


            Vivid colour, the scent of herbs and the sun-baked earth. The touch of a man’s lips for the first time in months.   
            Languorous in the still heat of the early afternoon, lulled by the faint hum of drowsy insects, mesmerised by Matteo’s dark eyes gleaming softly in the shade urging her to this one last pleasure, she leaned forward the inch required to take the grape, closing her lips around it.  Around the tips of his fingers.
            The grape exploded on her tongue, the juice dribbling over her lips, over his fingers.  And it seemed the most natural thing in the world to lick it up…

I'm reading this book at the moment. That scene was so evocative, and there are many more that sneak up on you and make you sigh. There is 'another story' that runs in the background to the main characters' romance and it's made me reach for a tissue on occasion. The setting for the book is so vivid, I want to be back in Rome - in fact, anywhere in Italy! Loving the unfolding story and looking forward to how the H&h get their HEA.

Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving such lovely comments! Sensual, sexy, evocative. What more can I ask? :)

Sorry I've been an absent blogger, but have been to London to have lunch with fellow authors at an annual get together so haven't been glued to my keyboard this weekend.

London is great, but the best beloved and I agreed that next spring we're definitely going back to Rome.

Meanwhile, I'll be blogging about Italian food, fashion and goodness knows what else over the next few weeks in the run up to the retail release of this book.
