Weekend Writing Warrior – 2/16/14

Posted on Feb 16, 2014 by Maggie Wells   11 Comments | Posted in Blog

This week, I’m sharing 8 more from The Art Lover!

Not daring to meet his gaze, she slipped one finger under the top button of his shirt and worked it free. “I need you.”

“Whoa, hold on a second,” he rasped, his fingers closing convulsively on her hips as she moved on to the next.

Kelsey shook her head, punctuating her stubborn refusal by loosening another two buttons before sparing a glance from under her lashes. “You’re perfect,” she whispered, yanking the tails of the shirt from his pants.

“What are you doing?”

She freed the last button then shoved the shirt over his shoulders, trapping his arms at his sides. “I’m going to paint you.”

Starving artist Kelsey Tecato takes being The Templeton Museum’s artist in residence a little too literally. By day, she puts on a show of painting for the crowds that shuffle through the galleries, but at night, her muse runs wild.

Mitch Jameson is a guy’s guy. A cop moonlighting as a security guard, he has little use for the artsy-fartsy stuff, but the mysterious Ms. Tecato’s sexy portraits call to him.

So does an interior alarm.

When Officer Jameson goes to investigate, he finds a paint-splattered goddess working on a self-portrait–in the nude.

A couple tubes of paint and a roll in the drop cloths later, free-spirited Kelsey helps Officer Jameson discover his passion for art.

Be sure to check out all of the fabulous Weekend Writing Warriors! See you soon!

    “I’m going to paint you.” – Honestly. One of the best lines ever. So much love for this story, Maggie! And for you!

    Hehe. Somehow I don’t think that was the answer he was expecting, but I love it. Nice and hot…I predict many more sparks between these two.

    If he wants to stop her, he might try grabbing his clothes, or stepping away, instead of holding on to her. But I’m not sure he really wants to stop her.

    It’s getting hot in there… thankfully, she’s helping him deal with the temperature with those pesky buttons. And now we’re left to wonder: will he be painted on canvas, or on skin?
