Weekend Writing Warrior – 5/25/14

Posted on May 25, 2014 by Maggie Wells   12 Comments | Posted in Blog

Just a little over a week until The Last First Date releases as part of the Harlequin-E Contemporary Boxed Set Volume 2!

Here are a fast eight from The Last First Date:


“We could have been in your bed by now.” Her voice was a low, husky taunt. Her smile was pure temptation. “Kiss me.”

His resolve crumbled like a stale saltine. He crossed the line without another moment of thought, cradling the base of her skull and pulling her into the abyss with him. Their tongues tangled and her hands cruised over the front of his shirt.

“We could pretend this is our third date and work backwards from there,” she whispered.


Available June 2, 2014!

    Awesome dialogue. I love the simile of the stale saltine. And there’s brilliance in the idea of pretending it’s date 3 and working backwards. Great 8!

    Love the ‘pretend it’s the third date,’ comment. Why worry about something like the number of times you’ve gone out with someone? If it’s right, it’s right.
