Six Sentence Sunday

Coming January 4th from Amira Press. Wanted: The Civil War is over and Mara Aubrey has returned her beloved plantation in Virginia to find that everything has changed. One change Mara finds she doesn't mind at all is the addition of their new field hand Colin Beaudine, a sexy cowboy whose blue eyes hold the promise of pleasures Mara can't imagine. Mara Aubrey is used to bending men to her will. Colin is used to women who revel in submitting to him. Has he finally met his match in the spoiled plantation owner's daughter, or is Mara brave enough to learn everything Colin wants to teach her?

For this week's six, poor Colin has been jumped by the KKK when Mara finds him and they're waiting for her slave Lou to return with help.

"This certainly wasn't how I hoped our next meeting would go." 

"Just what…that little sweet brain of yours…have in mind?"

"I wouldn't want to make your pain worse by inflaming your already feverish desire for me."

That made him laugh, then groan at the obvious pain it caused him.

Mara whimpered. "I'm sorry. I don't mean to make it worse."

He took her hand and squeezed, making her pulse skip. "You didn't."
