Making Love in a Thunderstorm #sixsunday



Welcome to Six Sentence Sunday: Where writers share six sentences from their published or unpublished books.

What is it about a thunderstorm? So electric, so passionate. A great background for making love. There's a storm brewing (in more than one way) in these six sentences from my debut novel, BENEATH THE SURFACE.


   The search might take longer without Brooke, but it could be done.
   Rain beat strong and heavy against the bedroom window panes. Brooke moaned in her sleep and pressed against him. No, she wouldn’t admit she needed protection. But he had to admit it for both of them. For now, he buried his head in her hair, and let himself fall asleep to the soft fruity smell of her shampoo.

LOL, Tonya! I agree. :)

Nice six, Joya. I like that in a thunderstorm scene, she thinks about needing protection--though the two aren't necessarily related. But it does seem to speak to a common thread among people. :-)
