Monica Beggs on My Sexy Saturday @MySexySaturday

Welcome to the 118thweek of My Sexy Saturday.

This week’s theme: Their Sexy Gaze

Please visit us at our new Author Central where we’ll be sharing even more from our authors besides Saturday’s snippets. We’d love to have each one of you there as we’re starting mid-November and hope to bring you lots of fun and even some prizes on the way. 

This week’s theme is Their Sexy Gaze. Have you ever seen a couple who look so adoringly at each other? Makes you wonder just what they are thinking? Are they thinking about the last time they made love or the conversation they just had? 

The point is that lovers have eyes only for each other. Sometimes the gaze is loving, and sometimes not, but you always know they are a couple destined to be together.  

Sexy has nothing to do with looks or status or even wealth. It doesn’t demand perfection and it isn’t pretentious but it does make us want to read those books. 

We know that everyone has their own idea of sexy and we all love sexy! 

Here’s seven paragraphs from MONICA BEGGS. 

(Set-up: Monica has just been accosted by three members of the Colombian Cartel. They’re leading her out of a building with pedestrians all around.) 

On her left, the excited fan with a football player’s build she’d encountered earlier slouched against the wall with his head down and a smart phone in his hand. Only he wasn’t looking at the black screen. He was staring directly at her. 

Moni licked her lips and chanced a glimpse at the smelly man beside her. Roberto had stationed himself squinting into the sun, brows furrowed, waiting for his master like an obedient dog. 

Dizziness threatened to shake the legs right out from under her. Now or never. Without moving her head, Monica slanted her eyes toward the ebony-haired giant, infusing all her fear into a single glance, begging him for help.  

Stranger-danger never looked so good. The man shook back his sun-streaked raven hair, winked, and sent her a tiny smile. Then, as though he hadn’t a care in the world, strolled up to them, his eyes completely focused on her.  

Oh shit! Did he think she was coming on to him? On a normal day he’d be cute, but not her type. The blond surfer with his lithe build was more her style. Monica hoped to God the linebacker didn’t mistake her for a hooker with a pimp. 

Beggars can’t be choosers. At this point, she’d take whatever she could get.

     His rapt attention never left her face, he completely ignored the man standing next to her. It didn’t matter if the stranger stood over six feet tall. He’d be stabbed and his innocent bystander blood would be on her conscience.
