Weekend Writing Warriors #56!

Howdy, y'all! I'm in Texas, and you know what they say about that. ;) So let's just jump right into the good stuff, shall we? 

Here's the blurb for Crossing the Line: 
Madison Kelly is an erotic romance author from Canada on her way to her first ever writing conference. Across the border. A trunk full of dirty books and dildos proves enough to amp up her nerves and make her lips flap faster than the maple leaf flag.
But she's not going anywhere until George Petropoulos gives the go-ahead.
The Greek god of a border guard has something other than national security in mind when he detains this particular citizen. He can’t help but be charmed by the juxtaposition between her stammering blushes and the racy books she writes.
A hot and heavy interrogation brings out her inner sex goddess, one that she’s been hiding in the pages of her books, and leaves them both wanting more. But will they be brave enough to cross the line again?

And here's an excerpt, continuing from where we left off:
From close up, the name embroidered on the front of his uniform swam into focus: George. She’d never found the name sexy until now.
“Citizenship?” he asked.
She cocked her head to the side and studied him--smooth, straight nose with a slight bump on the bridge. Eyelashes that made her ache with envy. Wavy jet-black hair that begged a girl to get all tangled up in. “Hmmm, I would guess you’re either Greek or Spanish.”
“I meant you.” 

That's all, folks! Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to visit the other Weekend Writing Warriors! 

So yeah. I'm spending a fabulous long weekend in Texas with some of my favourite people in the world, and we're eatin', and talkin' and gigglin', and eatin', and drivin', and eatin'...You get the picture. It's been a blast so far. I'll definitely be back, Texas. You produce some fine men...and food. Hope y'all have a sensational week! :)

  1. Greek god as border guard.... Have never been that lucky, myself. What a great fantasy! ☺ Hope the weather in Texas has been better for you. We had more snow this weekend.

  2. Ha!! OMG, love her quip...and I'll bet anything he was amused by it as well...what a hunk of a guard...and I'm with her, I never found the name George sexy but now....yeah...

  3. Oh my, my border guards never look like that;).

  4. Yup. George is now officially a sexy name. Great eight!

  5. Oh that's very funny indeed! She's definitely got her mind on him, George or not. Great snippet!

  6. This made me giggle. So fun. Loved it!

  7. He's got to be wondering what she's thinking. But perhaps she'll be a nice break from his routine. :)

  8. LOVE this encounter and her answer to his question. It really reveals what she's thinking about! I like your sense of humor.

  9. I like her answer for him! Have a great time in Texas!
