#SexySnippets... A conversation about sausages...


It's #SexySnippet time again...

Ben and Clarissa are getting used to being shown, uncovered...

(When I do get a cover, Be assured i'll share)

The Scandalous Proposal of Lord Bennett


To have and to hold?

Reluctant debutante Lady Clarissa Macpherson has never forgotten the forbidden kiss she shared with notorious rake, Lord Theodore ‘Ben’ Bennett, all those years ago. Even now, he’s the one man who sets Clarissa’s pulse racing and her skin tingling – no matter how hard she tries to ignore it!

Yet, when Ben rescues her from the unwanted advances of a drunken Lord at a society ball, she finds herself in a most scandalous predicament – engaged, to the most eligible bachelor in London!

Wedded? It appears so, but bedded? Clarissa demands more from her marriage than simply surrendering to her new husband’s sexual desires, especially when she realises she’s falling deeper in love with him every single day. Ben must prove that she’s the only woman for him – and surrender his heart!

Yet resisting her new husband’s delicious seduction may prove the hardest thing Clarissa has ever done…

a wee tease...

(Ben has accidentally got hot chocolate on his pantaloons and is threatening to take them off where he stands.
It would mean he was naked. 
Clarissa is trying not to sound shocked. 
They are about to go into breakfast...)

 ‘One must hope there are no sausages on the menu because it wouldn’t do to get mixed up, Clarissa said, in what she hoped was an indifferent tone.

She tucked her hair behind her ears and bit her lip to stop herself giggling at his astonished expression.
‘Although at least, as you say, as we are nigh on servant-less, there won’t be any poor, unsuspecting tweeny to shock into hysterics, but don’t let me stop you.’ 

Ben thrust his arm out and caught her wrist as she walked past him. 
‘Oh, I don’t intend to...hold on …’ he said slowly and raised one eyebrow imperiously. ‘Did you just liken my pego to a sausage?’

‘A Lincolnshire one,’ Clarissa said helpfully, as she hid a grin. ‘Not one of those thin things that pass for a link.’ 

(one sentence over to convey the scene, please forgive me...)
