Welcome to this week's "My Sexy Saturday" ( http://www.mysexysaturday.blogspot.com/ ). I always feel like the set-up to a scene can be just as sexy as the scene itself. I like the little gestures, and the subtle language and images.
This selection comes from my WIP “Mountains
and Skyscrapers”. After a casual dinner
with a group of his future employees, involving more than a few bottles of
celebratory wine, Michael ends up having to drive his new second-in-command
Randall’s sister home since he was already driving someone else home. Not that he’d minded driving her home at all,
even if Randall had shot him the evil eye a few times. He’d drop her off last, to make sure that she was ok and all, of course.
she invited him in, and, well, he had to oblige. He was a perfect

You know, I only had two glasses of wine. I’m perfectly fine, Randall is just a
worrier. He still treats me like I’m the little sister in an Easter dress or
something.” She plopped down on the overstuffed
white loveseat with one foot curled under her, so he sat on the matching couch
and tried to appear relaxed even though all of his senses were ultra-heightened.
He felt like a fox in a sheep-filled pasture, and his mind raced trying to find
the right thing to say.
