Weekend Writing Warrior – 5/4/14

Posted on May 4, 2014 by Maggie Wells   9 Comments | Posted in Blog

It’s May already and I have nothing prepared! Here’s a quick eight from book #5 in my Hot Nights in St. Blaise series – Mr. Mayhem.



She tried to stifle a smile but failed miserably. The trembling of his muscles wasn’t from the strain of harnessing his lust or the result of pleasure rippling through that long, lean body. No, this time those glorious little quakes were the result of a blast of air conditioning and a lack of coverings. He was naked. And completely at her mercy.

A low growl accompanied another fierce tug on the nylons tethering him to the bed. “Don’t pull, you’ll only make them tighter,” she warned.


Mr. Mayhem


Lab tech Melanie Curtis claims Dr. Marc Mayhew’s shy smile won her vote for Mr. May, but the fact is she’s been aching to get a taste of the delicious Pathologist’s mochachino skin since the moment she set eyes on him.

Quiet and reserved, Marc was happy to take refuge in his research until she walked into his lab. He tried to ignore the attraction that sparked and sizzled each time she drew near, all too aware of the strict edicts issued by the hospital’s Human Resources department, but he couldn’t deny that he wouldn’t mind subjugating himself to his bossy little subordinate. Over and over again.

The only variable he couldn’t predict was how far Melanie was willing to go to get the results she expected. When she tests his mettle, Marc finds he’s more than willing to risk everything on a case of chemistry run amok if it means he can claim her as his. For keeps.

That’s it for now, folks. If you want to read more snippets, please be sure to check out the posts from my fellow Weekend Writing Warriors!

    Hot snippet, Maggie. I never thought about tying up a naked man. Is it too late, do you think?

    I’m not saying she should cover him up–but she could turn down the AC a bit. After all, she’s going to be cold, too, if she ends up unclothed.
