Weekend Writing Warrior – 3/23/14

Posted on Mar 23, 2014 by Maggie Wells   9 Comments | Posted in Blog

This week I have been working on revisions to my first novella in preparation for re-release! Here are 8 lines from Seducing Steve:

“I’ve dreamed about you. Asleep and awake,” she whispered. “I’ve thought about us for years.”

His eyes popped open. “Years?”

Her gaze locked on him, she nodded. “Years.”

“Oh, God.”

Seducing Steve

Erotic romance novelist Sara Wright yearns for passion that leaps from the page. After a marriage that proved to be more fizzle than sizzle, Sara’s writing reflects her growing frustration and also her secret passion for her best friend and muse, Steve Larson.

Steve Larson is anything but your typical romance hero. A redheaded computer nerd with a slow, southern drawl, Steve is neither a cattle baron nor a titan of industry. The one thing he does have going for him is that he has loved Sara from the moment he met her.
When she confesses that he has long served as her inspiration, Steve leaps at the chance to take things to the next level. Determined to be the man to make her fantasies come true, he takes a page from Sara’s own books and plots a passion so intense it threatens to consume them and the friendship they both cherish.

When friends turn into lovers, love can get lost in the shuffle. Fact becomes tightly cocooned in fiction as both Sara and Steve learn to balance their desires with the needs of their hearts.

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

    Oh, what a moment!! The snippet and the blurb make me want this one, without a doubt. I’ve got such a thing for nerds/geeks.

    That’s a long time to hold those feelings in, and I’m glad she’s revealing the truth now. I would react the same way if I was him.

    A simple one word confession can change to whole complexion of an encounter.

    Ha! That sure made him think about everything he’s missed. Nice writing Maggie. I felt the spark between the two in so few word.
