#SexySnippets - 7 Succulent Sentences from Hermes Online

The other day I stumbled upon the Nuthouse Scribblers and saw that they're hosting a fun tag-along. Of course I signed up. :)  I like those mini hops. Check out the other participants:

The idea here is to post seven sexy sentences from your work. This week, I've chosen a few from Hermes Online, my CataRomance Sensual Reads Reviewer's Choice Winner for Contemporary Romance. This is an unusual story of transformation told in one perspective
only. (psst...the Greek gods are implied)


Imagine if you will a story begun in the halls of Mount Olympus long before this modern tale was conceived. It was a time when the god Hermes flew on his winged sandals and carried messages from the gods to the mortals below. And between that time and this, couriers became postmen and handwritten letters became bytes. It is said the gods still speak to those who listen…

Left bruised and brokenhearted after a cruel breakup, Vivienne Bennet finds herself mired in a world of self-doubt. To her surprise, she receives an email that challenges her to rediscover the sensual woman she once was. Together Vivienne and the enigmatic man known only as S embark upon the world of anonymous Internet communication where suggestive emails lead to erotic chat, where cybersex leads to Skype, and C2C sends both into the arms of a love they’d believed lost forever.

Setting the Stage: Vivienne comes to anticipate her pen pal's response to what she's just sent him.

I clicked send and waited.

“You’ve got mail” burst forth from the speakers, and I discovered I had been conditioned to have an autonomic response to seeing the envelope and hearing the computerized words. Like Pavlov’s dog, I began to salivate.

Dearest V,
Indeed it is sadly lacking. How is it you’ve reached inside me this way? Are you the sorceress, the witch with unseen powers to tempt me so? I think you are, for I find myself yearning in a way I thought forever lost to me.

"Hermes Online is a wickedly tantalizing tale that overloads your senses. When it comes to writing erotic romance, Rose Anderson knows how to encase her written words so we can practically see the story instead of just read about it."
