@MySexySaturday #MySexySaturday #Saturday7 #MSSAuthors #MSS111

It's My Sexy Saturday! Participating authors post 7 paragraphs, 7 sentences, or 7 words.  For me it's sentences from Heart of Stone ~ written under the new pen name Madeline Archer. Madeline makes her debut in Entice Me ~ a 99¢, nine-author anthology from Romance Books '4' Us coming October 10th. Watch for the pre-order!
The Blurb:

The story opens with the notorious witch hunts in 17th
Century Salem, Massachusetts.

As formal education for women lacks substance in her own country, Neila Flannigan leaves Ireland in 1904 to attend Radcliffe women’s college America. Shy and introverted, Neila passes her lonesome hours sketching the Harvard grounds and sending drawings home to her father. A chance encounter with a kind and elderly Irish woman inspires her to sketch a statue in an old, unused building. Desperately lonely, Neila ends up sharing her thoughts and feelings with a man carved in stone. Some days it feels like he listens.

Setting the Stage:

Taking Mrs. Maguire's suggestion, Neila takes her art tablet and pencils and visits a statue that sits in an old unused building. A building that no one seems to notice. The detail on the figure is extraordinarily lifelike...

My Seven:

The John Harvard bronze and the other posthumous tribute pieces she’d drawn thus far were fashioned with generic features. Not so with this one. From what she could tell with the subject’s head bent over his book, his features were unique. She ducked her head for a better look, wishing she could lift his chin to see his face fully. The sculptor had given the statue a straight Roman nose, intelligent brow, and full lips that turned slightly at the corners. It was likely carved from life. She told it, “You are certainly in need of a good scrubbing, but you were very handsome whoever you were.”
