Six Sentence Sunday - Walking The Edge: Snippet #20

Hey beautiful people

Back again on the Six Sunday bandwagon this week - the hiatus of last week made me yearn and crave for the snippets I've grown addicted to in the past few months. Trust me - Six Sentence Sunday grows on you, and I'm not the only participant who has been bitten by that bug. :)

So, onwards and upwards. Where had we left off? Right... hotel room in Marseille... Amelia had killed Gerard's assailant, and shock has settled into her...but only as long as it took until Gerard's heated, passion-filled gaze settled on her.
She's made him think of a woman from his past, and he wants nothing more than to forget now... while amnesiac Amelia is trusting her gut and her heart that are certain Gerard had looked at her exactly like this in the past.
What would happen if they got close...? Read on for today's six. :)

'...
Even through her damp towel and his shirt, she could feel the blazing temperature of his body reaching out to her, and she parted her lips when he drew closer. Tension sizzled between them, and she recalled that moment on the streets when he had stood so close to her and had touched her cheek.

As if he too recalled it, he brought his palm up; the warm skin settled firmly along her jawbone, cradling it in his grasp. She closed her eyes under the feeling of security that spread through her - This feels so right, she thought, pressing her cheek into his palm.

When his lips touched hers, the fire that had smoldered inside her blazed into a full-blown inferno - she opened her mouth to his kiss, and his tongue delved inside to coax hers into surrender. She yielded willfully, her arms going around his neck, because his kiss brought her alive, made her yearn for more, for everything, with him. ...'


Catch the rest of the Six Sunday crew and their awesome snippets here.

Hope you're having a lovely Sunday, peeps! Thanks for dropping by and reading my work, and double thanks if you leave a comment - you guys totally make my week with the words you leave here. :)

From Mauritius with love,

Zee

I liked how her emotions were unlocked despite her spotty memory. Well done six, Zee. :)

Zee Monodee said...

Thanks Lex! :)

Zee Monodee said...

*grin* @ Brenda! Glad you could come over :) xoxo

Zee Monodee said...

Thanks Siobhan. Yes, her emotions are clueing her in about him despite the blank memory. In a way, he starts her down the path of remembering with his touch :)

Chrystalla Thoma said...

I like it that she feels so safe with him. Great six!

sue said...

It feels so right - yes it does. Look forward to the back story too. Hope it's cooled down where you are - gather it's summer? Fall here but storms on east coast
and thank you so much for comment on my six

Guilie said...

Excellent! Glad you followed up where you'd left off two weeks ago--I HAD to know if they were going to kiss or not. And--whew!--they did. But why do I get the feeling that it's not going to go much further? You torturer, you... :)

Zee Monodee said...

Thanks Chrystalla. Yes, he is her refuge from the storm, but both are only starting to realise it :)

Zee Monodee said...

Thanks Sue. Some of the backstory will unfold after this love scene :)

Cooled down? No such luck! Still in the midst of a massive heat wave and no signs it'll let up soon. I'm praying for some rain right now.

Most welcome about the comment - I love that story of yours :) xoxo

Paula Martin said...

Sizzling, sexy six - great!

Angela Guillaume said...

Zee, you really never let us down. Fantastic snippet! xoxo

Sherry Gloag said...

Surprising the 'page' isn't 'smoking'! great six.

Christine Warner said...

Lovely Zee...very sensual but sweet at the same time. Nicely done!

Nicola Marsh said...

Ooooooh...so hot, Zee!

mirriamsmyth said...

"because his kiss brought her alive, made her yearn for more, for everything, with him."

THAT is what every kiss should produce in a person - the need for everything from him/her. Great six, Zee.

J.M. Blackman said...

I have to be honest: I'm just as in love as she is. Not with him, though...with this snippet. Excellent six, Zee.

Layna Pimentel said...

I can only come up with one word to describe your post this week: tantalizing.

Outstanding post, Zee!

Mina Khan said...

Wow, love the way you introduce your post, uber cool! And you live in Mauritius? So jealous :)

Zee Monodee said...

Hey Guilie

Your comment must've come in when I was replying the others - I'm only seeing it now that I'm logging in for the day - so sorry for the delay in replying you. Didn't want you to think I was being a stuck-up cow or something :)

Tortuer? Who, me...? Nah. LOL. Come over next week - you'll see what happens next :)

XOXO

Zee Monodee said...

Thanks Paula! :)

Zee Monodee said...

*grin* Angela. Glad I'm still keeping the standard up (ROTF!) xoxo

Zee Monodee said...

What a wonderful thing to say, Sherry! :) Thanks

Zee Monodee said...

Thanks Christine! This scene is one of my faves in the book :)

Zee Monodee said...

Thank you Nicola! *big smile*

Zee Monodee said...

Mirriam, I totally agree! That kind of kiss is what makes romance what it is for me. :)

Zee Monodee said...

Awww, J.M - that's so sweet of you! Thanks for coming over :)

Zee Monodee said...

Lol. Thanks Layna! :)

Zee Monodee said...

Lol, Mina! So I gather you know about Mauritius, :) Yup, I live here, I'm a native, actually. Glad you dropped by :)
