Here's the scoop: Participating authors will post 7 paragraphs, 7 sentences, or 7 words. For me, this time it's 7 sentences from Loving Leonardo ~ A Victorian polyamorous love story with a touch of reader-interactive art history. AND I've just found out Loving Leonardo is a 2nd place winner in the OKRWA International Digital Awards!
Setting the Stage:
Aboard a steamer to Venice, newly married Nicolas is inexplicably drawn to his bold-as-brass Yankee wife. But the fair blond Dutchman at the dinner table has a siren's call of his own.
I give you 7:
We talked about sea voyages, Lord Byron, and the feel of a fine Cuban cigar over your tongue.
His description was such that I asked him to show me what he meant.
He “just happened to have one in his cabin,” he said, “a fine hand-rolled Havana, the same sort that Britain’s own Prince Edward enjoyed.”
Primed with innuendo, needless to say, I followed.
After he closed the door behind us, he made no move to light the lamp.
In a flash he was on his knees before me.
It wasn’t a Havana he wanted rolling over his tongue, but then I never thought it was.
