Weekend Writing Warriors for June 12


This is my snippet for Weekend Writing Warriors (www.wewriwa.com) where writers share 8 – 10 lines of their work, for others to see and comment. Please follow and comment about others on the list.

I am again taking a snippet from my upcoming book, The Artist. This book has been accepted for publication and is in the process of being edited. The expected publication date is August 8. This is an historical erotic romance, based in England in the 1850s. Theodore (Theo for short) is the son of a Viscount, but has rejected the life of an aristocrat to live as a rather bohemian artist. He has an eye for pretty girls, whom he likes to paint in the nude. Lizzie is a poor village girl who made a disastrous marriage, from which she has fled, and is destitute. When Theo asks her to be his artist’s model, she swallows her natural modesty and accepts. Theo is still lusting after his pretty young model, but is prepared to take his time, rather than frightening her away. This does not stop him fantasising about her, however.

Theo watched as various thoughts flitted across the face of the pretty young thing in front of him. She was clearly much more relaxed than when she first started sitting for him and her features had softened so that she looked even more sensuous and desirable than ever. Could he risk an approach yet, without her taking fright and running away? He amused himself at certain times by imagining the things he would like to do to her and with her. It almost always ended with his cock climbing up the flagpole, but he had ceased to care about such things these days. Sex was as natural as eating and breathing for him and he had no time for the prissy people who treated it as a perverted act, borne solely for the begetting of children. He knew without doubt that his cock would find that pretty little quim before too long, but would bide his time a little longer, until he was more sure of the response he would receive.

He didn’t just want to fuck his delicious little model; his tastes led him to more adventurous and erotic pastimes. He yearned to hear the sound of his hand slapping on Lizzie’s soft, smooth bottom, that he caught glimpses of from time to time. He even imagined her tied naked to his bed, waiting in trepidation for what he chose to do to her.

So now we are getting to the hot stuff.  I thought I had teased you for long enough.  However, at the moment, all the action is going on in Theo’s head.  Will he make his move soon?  Keep reading to find out.

I still don’t have a cover picture to show you, so here is a rather fetching young woman with long, red hair like Lizzie.

    1. Oh I think guys are quite good at doing stuff while they are fantasising about sex. Otherwise there would be far more crashed cars and industrial accidents! Thanks for visiting, Veronica.


  1. Definitely getting a bit hotter here. And we see how different this artist is. I get the idea that Lizzie may be his “work” not only on the canvas, but as he sculpts her into a sexual being. Please keep going!

    1. Thanks Jenna. He’s a man who, in an age (Victorian) when sex was a bit taboo, revelled in it as a normal, natural, uninhibited event. He’s kind of a freewheeling, free thinking rebel, and I think that if Lizzie sticks with him, life will never be boring!


    1. Thanks Marcia. He doesn’t judge her like many other people. He’s unconventional and lives by his own rules, and not those imposed by the society he was glad to leave, and yes, I think he will come to care for her.
