By NaNoWriMo!! But, I beat it up and came back. ^.^ Seriously, I made my stab at NaNo this year and to my surprise I did it. I've got a little more actual writing to do for it too but once that is done, I'm going to let it stew for the month of December. I crammed alot of threads into this tapestry and its a mess but I'll pick out the ones I don't want and make something from it next year.
In other news! December really crept up on me with being so engrossed with NaNo so I almost forgot to mention my December 3rd release from Red Rose Publishing.
“I had everything under control, Sebastian.”
He took a step towards her, she retreated but he followed. “But you didn't really want to be, did you Lily?”
“What are you talking about?” Lily swallowed around the sudden lump in her throat, watching his eyes travel to her throat. The way he was looking at her made heat collect in her belly.
“You don't want to be in control,” he replied, his voice a low seductive growl.
“Yes I do,” she protested weakly.
“No, you don't. You want to let go, to hand someone else the reins.”
“I can take care of myself.” Lily straightened her shoulders, trying to ignore her body that longed to throw itself at this man's feet.
“Of course you can,” Sebastian conceded, “But you want someone to take care of you. I know why you weren't happy with Philip,” he said.
“Oh?” For every step she took away from him, he took one forward. Her heels touched the wall at the same time her hip hit the counter. She had backed herself into a corner and he placed his hands on the wall on either side of her head, trapping her. Her breath was coming in quick gasps now. She couldn't look at him. She kept her eyes on his shoulder but that turned out to be a bad idea as she noticed now that the black turtle neck hugged his form in a sinful way. “And why is that?” she somehow managed to ask
Sebastian bent his head, catching her gaze with his own. “You want a man who won't let you control him.”
“And you could?” she countered, her cheeks flushing.
She held her breath, thinking he was going to kiss her again but he took a step back. “Come, we're leaving.” His tone left no room for debate and she really didn't feel any desire to refuse the command. Still it was her brother's party and she always stayed here to spend Christmas morning with him and Kate.
“I said, come.”
