Weekend Writing Warrior 5/5/13

Posted on May 5, 2013 by Maggie Wells   10 Comments | Posted in Blog

This week’s selection comes from the latest in the 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. As naked as the day he was born. And gorgeous. And tied to her bed, completely at her mercy.

Mr. Mayhem from Turquoise Morning Press

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.

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to check out all of the posts from my fellow Weekend Writing Warriors!

    Gotta say, I’m awfully jealous of Melanie right about now. I want Mr. Mayhem tied to my bed. And Mr. January and Mr. March. I don’t think that’s too much to ask. 😉
