This sounds like fun! Thank you, Barbara Watkins, for inviting me. The rules… Go to Page 7, 70, or 170 of a current Work in Progress or recently published work and choose either the first complete paragraph or 7 lines of dialogue to share.
Here’s my entry from upcoming Book 11:
“Yes, but I have to carry you over the threshold, it’s my husbandly duty,” he said, punching in the security code and unlocking the door.
Mary winked at him and unbuttoned the top button of his shirt. “Well hurry and open the door, so you can put me down and concentrate on more interesting husbandly duties.”
“I’m not putting you down…” he exclaimed with a smoldering look as he pushed the door open, “until I drop you on the mattress.”
Bradley and Mary looked up to find their home filled with their friends.
“Oh, my,” Mary said, biting her lower lip in embarrassment.
“Hey, don’t worry,” Mike said, appearing next to them. “We didn’t hear Bradley say anything about a mattress.”
