#SexySnippets - 7 Succulent Sentences

Another Sunday and another Sexy Snippets!

The idea is to post just seven sentences to capture the imagination. Today, I'm offering another small sampling from an unusual Victorian polyamorous romance written with a touch of reader-interactive art history: Loving Leonardo (book 1 in the series)

Setting the stage:
Here Ellie and Nicolas meet Luca for the first time. They're aboard ship have dinner with other travelers. Ellie just asked Luca about his personal pursuit of Leonardo da Vinci's genius. Nicolas is enthralled.

My seven:

He gave her a genuine smile that crinkled the corners of his eyes. It was a very handsome smile indeed.  Even the blind could see that Luca Franco possessed an innate animal magnetism, but when he smiled the world tilted on its axis. My gaze went to my wife and knew she concurred by the distinctive tint upon her cheeks — the sexual tint I’d so recently come to recognize. I couldn’t help but wonder what brewed in her mind. As for myself, I harbored an undeniable attraction for the both of them. It was all I could do to keep the stallion of my imagination in the paddock.

"Both books are great reads. How she followed each character to the conclusion was masterful. I can't wait for the next."
