Welcome to my blog, SCRIBBLING TO (IN)SANITY! First time here? I'm a romance writer who wants to believe most problems can be solved over coffee, a mixed drink or by anything covered in chocolate. I'm a believer in second chances and that it's always the right time to fall in love. As the saying goes, you're a guest in my house only once...then you're family. So I invite you to join the fun! I love comments but it's okay to lurk too - just know I'm glad you've found me and I hope you visit me again soon!

Our Sexy Delight @MySexySaturday #MSS48

Welcome to the 48th week of My Sexy Saturday.
This week is all about our sexy delight. Again, it’s about our awesome couples and just what makes them that way. Some of them do it in the stars, some have riddles to solve, empires to rule and others live right here on earth but all of them make us come back for more over and over and over again.

The rules are to post 7 paragraphs or 7 sentences or 7 words ONLY. The choice is yours. It can be from a WIP or something you already have published.

Today I'm offering up 7 sentences from my holiday novella, Muffins & Mistletoe.

First the blurb:

Welcome to Starlight Hills! Mountain views, small town charm, and one little bake shop, where romance is always on the menu.

Christmas is the best time of year to be in love in Starlight Hills. Cold nights perfect for snuggling, plenty of mistletoe to be caught kissing under, and an abundance of gingerbread muffins for sharing under the stars. But when Corinne Mackenzie turns down a proposal from the man she loves at the Thanksgiving table, it could be the worst time of year instead. Convinced the only way to fix the biggest mistake of her life is to enlist the help of the town's resident matchmaker, she's got a plan to make this the best Christmas ever.

After his proposal is rejected in front of family and friends, Jimmy Crane knows his only chance of surviving the holiday is to avoid the woman who stomped on his heart. The only obstacle to his plan is his matchmaking mother and Corinne's knack for getting him under the mistletoe.


Here's my 7 sentences from a scene in the bakeshop, where it seems Jimmy has ended up under the mistletoe :)

          Jimmy realized he was under the mistletoe less than a second before her lips were on his. Hot coffee in one hand and a bag of muffins in the other, he couldn’t put his arms around her even if he wanted to. And he wanted to.
Corinne’s fingers pressed into his shoulders and her soft lips crushed against his. While Johnny Mathis sang about chestnuts roasting on an open fire, flames of a different kind flooded through every inch of his body. Her warm fingertips touched his neck and along his jaw, then her lips parted and he was powerless to do anything but accept the invitation her mouth offered. He inhaled her intoxicating scent, something floral, a little spicy—or maybe that was just the cinnamon drifting in from the kitchen behind him.
