Even a staid 1950s Montana ranch kitchen can be filled with moon magic when it comes to hankerings, urges, and love.
Tuesday Tales is a weekly blog featuring diverse authors who post excerpts from their WIPs based on word and picture prompts. We have a picture prompt today, and the snippet is from a story currently being reworked as Jaycee’s Cowboy. Please visit the other fabulous authors at Tuesday Tales.
Sadie had just finished filling a large oval platter when the front door opened and closed, and Sam’s boots resounded in the hallway. His gaze landed on Jaycee and then Sadie. Stopping at the sink, he suds up and scrubbed his hands as if he’d been handling vermin. “Feeling better, Sadie?”
“Getting there. What happened to the tree, Sam?”
After a moment he said, “Lightning most like.”
Jaycee eased into a chair. Yeah, in a blue moon.
Sadie gave her a wink and set about dipping eggs onto a blue patterned plate. “I’ll eat in my room, if you don’t mind, Sam. Sit down and get some nourishment in you.”
He nodded, and Sadie took her plate and ambled from the kitchen.
Sam’s masculine presence filled up the room and set an intimate tone. Jaycee hoped he couldn’t detect the erratic beat pulsing at her throat. They ate in silence for a few minutes, and her stomach began to settle a bit.
He reached for toast at the same time as she, and a sliver of electricity surged from his hand to hers. She jerked away and stared at him. He leaned over and put his thumb to the corner of her mouth. “Butter makes for kissable lips.” The corners of his eyes crinkled before his expression darkened. He reached for her then and pulled her onto his lap. He kissed where his thumb had been. “Jaycee, you’re a vision. What you do to me—.”
The muscles of his shoulders corded under her restless fingers. “Sam, I-I want—”
His arms tightened around her and with a forefinger he traced the plunging ‘v’ of her neckline. She trembled at his hot breath against her ear. “Will you come to my bed, Jaycee?”
Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed my excerpt with today’s picture prompt of a beautiful moon. Please visit the other fabulous authors at Tuesday Tales.
