Six Sentence Sunday–3/25 Only Scandal Will Do

Welcome back to Six Sentence Sunday!  Thanks once again to everyone for your great support each week.  I do appreciate your comments, so keep them coming.  I also look forward to visiting your sites and reading your wonderful snippets.

Today I’m continuing with another six sentences  from Only Scandal Will Do.  If you want to read the section just before this snippet, check out my post from yesterday.

The masked man has purchased a woman in a brothel auction and has come to claim his prize.  His “slave” however, continues to insist there has been a mistake.  He has managed to turn the tables on the “lady” and call her virtue into question.  While evading the man’s advances, they discover a missing bit of vital information that seems turn the tide of his opinion of her.

“You are distraught, my lady. Please allow me to come to your aid.” He brought her hands to rest on the soft black cloak that disguised the solid expanse of his chest. Concern and respect in the voice that so recently mocked and insulted broke through Katarina’s crumbling defenses. Ready to drop from weariness, she could not reclaim the strength leached away by the excitements of the night. And his chest was strong and so incredibly warm under her palms that Kat sighed as his heat stole into her body, relaxing the muscles in her hands and arms inch by inch.

It sounds like he’s ready to step up to the plate and become a real hero to a damsel in distress.  What do you think?

If you’d like to read more about Kat’s plight, check out my posts from January at Sweet Saturday Sample and February here at SSS.  Be sure to come back next week for another six sentence installment.
