#SexySnippets - 7 Succulent Sentences from Enchanted Skye

Another Sunday and another Sexy Snippets! When you're done reading mine, see what the other participants are offering. I'll bet they're juicy. :)
The idea here is to post seven sexy sentences from your work. This week, I've chosen a few from 
my soon-to-be-released Enchanted Skye.
As with all legends, their roots often hold truths. My new tale is based upon actual legends of sea creatures and the real Scottish family whose long oral traditions say they are Selkie -- beings able to live on land as human or in the sea as seal-like creatures. These aren't fun stories the family made up to offer to tourists. According to long-held family history, they've been Selkie for many generations.

Setting the Stage: Like his siblings and his father and the rest of his family back hundreds of years, Alex MacCodrum is a Selkie. In this scene, Alex's brothers and sister discuss his odd reaction to a tenant staying at the family's inn. The night before, Jenna MacLeod and Alex got off to a very bad start when she was inadvertently locked inside his room. She's embarrassed and furious. He's inexplicably head over heels. There's a reason for that.

Here are my 7 succulent sentences:

Gavin shook his head, “What are ye both going on about?”

“The legend Gavin. The Legend of the Seven Tears.” Bea explained.

Gavin’s shoulders dropped. “No.” That kind of charmed longing would eat Alex alive if Jenna didn’t return the sentiment. “You’re right! It’s happening now. I’ve never seen him like he was this morning.”

The elder warned them both, “Listen, don’t ye even think about telling him...”

Concerned for Alex, Gavin said, “But she’s avoiding him Lachlan, in the long run it will break his heart.”

Lachlan frowned. It would indeed. This was old magic. So old it was the stuff of fairy tales. If Jenna MacLeod cried seven tears into the sea with Alex nearby, it was a binding contract of love or obsession – lasting love if he could win her heart, obsession and eventual suicide if he couldn’t. “If he doesn’t figure out a way to win her over, it will kill him.” Lachlan’s frown deepened. “And damn it all, there’s nothing the three of us can do about it.”

Beatrix MacCodrum tapped a finger to her chin. “Maybe there is.”
