Weekend Writing Warriors ~ 11/30/14 Almost Perfect ~ The Perfect Pirate



Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors!

For the Sundays in December I plan to share snippets from my Christmas stories, however, for the final Sunday in November, I’m sharing a snippet from Almost Perfect, my erotic romantic comedy novella. I’m really excited because I just got the rights back to Almost Perfect and I’m readying it for re-release.  Which means a new cover! So expect a cover reveal in the next week or so.

Pamela Kimball’s birthday present, a One Perfect Night adventure, promises jump-start her life, put a new man in her bed, and help her forget her past.  Unfortunately, movie-buff Pam’s Pirates of the Caribbean fantasy takes an alarming wrong turn when she’s abandoned on a not quite deserted island—with ex-husband Roger Ware.

Forced by hunger to accept Roger’s offer of dinner,  Pam realizes the geek she married has transformed into one of the most charming, sexiest men she’s ever met. His newfound confidence—and hot body—re-kindles old fires.  A simple kiss leads Roger to challenge her to discover how much his lovemaking skills have improved, leaving Pam torn between self-preservation and burning desire.

With time running out before they’re rescued, Pam must decide if her heart can survive the consequences of becoming Roger’s “almost” perfect night.

My 8 from a new section of Almost Perfect:

20140313_074744The deliciously hard body pressed her into the warm sand. Sinewy arms pinned her shoulders while his stubbly beard rasped against the skin of her neck as he kissed and nibbled his way down the slope of her neck. Her pirate had shown up at last, a dream come true. Tall, dark, and handsome might be a cliché, but man, it felt so good. The warmth of his naked torso rubbing against her bare midriff set her ablaze with hungers she’d thought would never be satisfied.

She’d been sitting under the trees, contemplating a scathing rejoinder to Roger’s accusation when she’d been pulled into an embrace from behind. She’d shrieked and tried to scramble away, but he’d nuzzled her ear and whispered, “It’s me, Pam. I’m here to give you your perfect night.”


Hope you enjoyed this little taste of Almost Perfect.  If you want to read more, it should be  available in December.

In the mean time, check out the rest of the Warriors here.  There’s some fantastic snippets to be read.

    I’m a sucker for a fantasy-becomes-reality in some senses. The fact that it’s her ex-husband just makes it better. 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing!
