Six Sentence Sunday #4: Be careful where you kiss

This Sunday's six is from my Regency paranormal romance WIP, A Woman of Proper Accomplishments:

"Never had Helena expected something like this to happen. The seconds stretched into an eternity of bliss. Any thoughts of guilt, propriety, and anything other than the pleasure of the kiss were washed away into oblivion.

That made it all the more unfortunate when a familiar giggle sounded from near the door--Cassie!

She wrenched away from Mr. Morgan and turned toward the noise, her whole body burning with a mixture of suppressed desire and embarrassment. Cassandra stood at the entrance of the room with her hands over her mouth doing little to conceal her wide grin."

Oh, dear. Interrupted kisses are always quite bothersome.

It'll be interesting to see where you take this. :o) Good work!

Gem Sivad said...

Busted! And so well done. I'll be back to see what's next.

Cate Masters said...

Oops, busted! Interesting that she still thinks of him as Mr. Morgan after kissing him!

Jean Davis said...

Should that be propriety?

I wonder how Mr. Morgan will react to getting busted as well. Darn that meddling Cassie, interupting a perfectly wonderful kiss.

J.A. Beard said...

LOL. Yes, it should be propriety and not proprietary. :)

Sarah Grimm said...

Uh-oh. How will Mr Morgan react to this interruption? Great six!

Rebecca Royce said...

She got caught! That was an awesome six!

Taryn Kincaid said...

Oh, dear. Hope poor Helena is not about to land in the scandal broth! On the other hand...

Lindsay said...

Caught. And the hand wasn't even in the cookie jar. Love to see how they're going to get out of theis.

Hailey Edwards said...

Uh oh. Busted! I guess the bright side is they can always finish their kiss later. ;)

J.A. Beard said...

Just a note:

Cassandra is Helena's age (well one year younger). She's a family friend.

lexcade said...

Oooh. Wondering what Cassandra will do with the info. Great six!

Elizabeth Rogue said...

Curse those interruptions!

Wonderful snippet :)

Susanna Fraser said...

Got to love/hate those interruptions!

Lindsay said...

Bet she won't be a family friend for much longer

Cara Bristol said...

Fun. Scene fits with Regency romance. Enjoyed it.

Sandy Nachlinger said...

Interrupted passion is always fun (well, unless you're the person being interrupted!) Can't wait to hear what this "woman of proper accomplishments" experiences next.

Eleri Stone said...
