Six Sentence Sunday: the relationship starts to crumble….

It’s been fun…but it’s time to move on for Lon and myself.  This is the last week I’ll feature Reckless in Moonlight for Six Sentence Sunday. Next week, I’m going to roll out a snippet from the soon-to-be-released The Feminist and the Dom, the third Rod and Cane Society domestic discipline erotic romance.

In this week’s scene, Dana’s ex-husband has had a heart attack. Her boyfriend Lon overheard and misunderstood a tender moment between Dana and her ex. He thinks she and her ex are going to reconcile so he’s beating her to the punch…

“I know why you’re here,” he said before she could launch into her it’s-not-you-it’s-me speech. “We had fun, a pleasant interlude.” He nearly gagged on the words. It had been so much more to him.

“A pleasant interlude?” She stared, but he couldn’t meet her eyes. He feared he’d lose his nerve, would resort to begging for another chance to prove to her they had something special.

Reckless in Moonlight Blurb: 

Forty-five-year-old Dana Markus knows a full moon makes people act crazy. It’s why they call the power company with stories about aliens disrupting the earth’s climate. It probably explains why her ex-husband left her for a girl scarcely older than their college-age daughter. It definitely accounts for why she impulsively invited the neighbor’s hunk of a son over for a skinny-dip. And why 28-year-old Lon Corbin accepted.

Lon doesn’t think much of the mass of rock orbiting the earth, but he does think he’s the luckiest man alive when the sexy divorcee he’s admired from afar invites him into her pool. He knows she has reservations about their age difference, but he’s planning to show her in a very physical way how good they could be together if she’ll give him the chance.

But when their simmering private passion boils over into a public relationship, family pressures and schemes threaten to split the couple apart.

The moon brought them together — but can it save them?
