Didn't Our Kiss Mean Anything? #MidWeekTease7 #Romance

What a lovely Wednesday! Welcome to Midweek Tease hosted by Sandra Bunino.

Every mid week, writers tease readers by sharing work from their published work or work-in-progress.


I'm going to share a bit more of Chloe and Warren's story from Sparkling Dawn - A Flirty & Feisty Romance.

Last week,
feisty Chloe got busted catching a glimpse of Warren's back side when he appeared unexpectedly on her door step.

In this scene, charming Warren is putting his best foot forward asking Chloe to be his girlfriend. And hot-headed Chloe has a few things to say to him.


Enjoy the Teaser!

SPARKLING DAWN...Is Chloe hiding the truth

 One part of Chloe's brain tried to remind her Warren was the wrong choice to flirt with for known reasons, but her tingly body shoved the idea into the trash can.
 
“Where do I clean up, Chloe?”

   “This way,” she replied, leading him down the hallway into the guest bathroom.

After opening the bathroom door, she stood back to let him in.
“Don’t take too long. Food waits for no man.”

Moving forward, he blocked her exit, his eyes pinned hers. “You baffle me. Way back in Hatfield, I would have described you as a passive girl. Now, you blush without a break. And our foray at Claridges opened my eyes to the possibility of us getting together. What happened in the garden is still playing on my mind and then, you turn on the teasing tap.”

   “Go in Warren. You make me edgy when you gape at me like that,” she accused in an austere voice.

   “And you amaze me, Chloe. Why are you nervous?” he asked, placing his left hand on the door frame above her head.

   Her heart thumped and she licked her top lip. The sight of her pink tongue flicking out unexpectedly revived his simmering lust.
   Sucking in his breath, his nose flared, and his palm gripped the door paneling.
“Don’t do that Chloe, for my peace of mind.”

   Nodding her head towards the shower stall, she said, “Warren, you were going to clean up, remember?”

   Shaking his head, he made one more plea. “Chloe, can I at least get to know you? Would you give me a chance, please?” She didn’t utter a word. But he pressed on. “Or are you involved with someone else?” There, it was out in the open. She couldn’t kiss him like that and be in a serious affair! Right?

   “And what about Louisa?” his inner voice yelled. Pushing aside his girlfriend’s image, he trapped Chloe with his eyes.

   Tapping her thumb against the wall, she huffed, “Are you asking me out again?
Charming Warren
After I’ve made it clear I’m not interested in having a quickie romance. Are you in short supply of women around the world? I can’t throw my heart on the firing line for you. I was hooked once, but what did you do?” He had broken her tender heart. And, he could break her healed heart again, and he wouldn’t even know it.

   “You were hooked on me, once and I didn’t even know it. When was that? Why didn’t you tell me?”

   Waving his questions aside, Chloe interjected, “Yes. I’m involved with someone. Before you ask, I’m not revealing his identity.” Her chin took on a stubborn slant.

   Warren growled, marching in and out of the bathroom.

   “I’m sorry Warren. I can’t go out with you.”

   “Why not?” he asked.

   She looked up at him, her expression wary. “You’re being unreasonable, Warren.”
   He shut his eyes and took in deep breath, inhaling her seductive blend of peach blossom, jasmine and blond wood fragrance teasing his nostrils, warming his insides, melting his resolve. “Didn’t our kiss mean anything to you?” Warren asked his voice hoarse.

   She waved off his reference to their tango in the sand. “My boyfriend wouldn’t share me with you or with anyone else. And I think I’m in love with him. Besides, you’re hooked to Louisa, remember?”

   His hand reached for the left side of his chest as the muscle in his neck jerked. “Was it the pain-in-the-butt man that tagged along with you to the awards? Drop him and you won’t regret it.”

Loud silence filled the hallway.

#Brides From #Africa 2- #BurundianBride

Welcome to Brides from Africa!

I hope you are having a fun-filled weekend. In Africa, quite often, we attend weddings on Saturdays.

Today on Brides From Africa, I'm sharing photos of beautiful brides from Burundi.


Here are traditional Burundian brides. 

Burundi is a landlocked country in East Central Africa. The country is bordered by Rwanda on the north, Tanzania on the east and south and Democratic Republic of Congo on the west. 

There are Tutsis, Hutus and Twas and they speak Kirundi, a Bantu language.
Photo is courtesy of beautifuleastafricanbrides
Banana wine, a homemade concoction is essential at any Burundian celebration. A glass can knock you over!

Here is a Burudian saying: Muzungu [white people] have the clocks, but Burundians’ have the time!

                                                                           
Thank you for visiting. Please leave me a comment.

If you have bridal photos to share from your place, send it to me via email and I'll share it here and give you credit. I love romance and swooning over bride photos is my hobby.

Surprise visit in Sparkling Dawn #MWTease6 #Giveaway #ASCPG

Welcome to MidWeekTease!

It is fun time again. MidWeekTease is hosted by Sandra Bunino.

Every Wednesday, writers and authors share a bit from their published work or work-in-progress.


This week's teaser is from the Sparkling Dawn relaunched by Flirty & Feisty Romance Novels. 

In this scene, Warren has just appeared on Chloe's doorstep unannounced.

Enjoy the Teaser!

SPARKLING DAWN...Is Chloe hiding the truth



"I’m sure you have better things to do-do than join me to tend my garden. And, my garden isn’t extensive.” Even as the retort tumbled out of Chloe's lips, her cheeks took
on a light pink colour.

Warren shook his head, amazed at how discomfited she appeared.

“I’m seeing a stuttering side to you.” His lips wobbled with laughter. “Believe it or not, I find your blushing and stuttering appealing.” Both signs gave him confidence he was right to have come in search of her.

After their dinner date ended belly up, he was left aching and seeking answers.
“I’ve casual clothes in the car that would do just fine. I’ll just go and grab them, and be right back.”

   Not waiting for acceptance, he leapt up and strode towards the door. Before he put one foot out, he turned back and added, “There’s nowhere else I’d rather be at this moment.” Warren stepped out before she could say anything.

His brazen smile left her gaping at his retreating back.

   Unable to understand what she just heard, she raced to her window and threw her gold curtains aside. Fair enough, she saw him strolling to his car parked in her driveway. While she drank in the sight of his butt, Warren’s head looked up just before he turned the lock in his car.

   The curtain circling her neck almost choked her. She coughed, her hands stuck to the curtain. And as Chloe watched, a big smile spread across his wide mouth.

#Brides From #Africa 1- #BiniBride

Welcome to Brides from Africa.

Every week, I will share photos of brides from different parts of Africa. In addition, I will reveal one or two facts.

On this first slot, I have photos of brides from my native place of Benin, Edo state, in South-South Nigeria in West Africa. The people of Benin speak Bini language.


Courtsey of Tripdownmemorylane

Bini brides wear several layers of red coral beads (called Ivie) as an adornment on their heads, neck, wrists and fingers.

The beaded coral crown on the bride's head is called okuku.

IVIE is another specie of coral beads, an important type of jewelry worn by Edo chiefs. This kind is described as precious coral. It has a hard core that can be polished to bring out beautiful red, rose, or pink colors. Read more at Edofolks.

Body on fire in Cowries From A Prince #MWTease5 #WIP #Romance

It is fun time again. Happy MidWeek Tease!

MidWeekTease is hosted by Sandra Bunino.

Every Wednesday, writers and authors share a bit from their published work or work-in-progress.


This week's teaser is from my WIP - Cowries From A Prince and it is a follow-up from last week. In this scene, Uvbi has more than a mouthful to say to Nagudia who rescued her from the bush path.

Teaser from Cowries From A Prince

Uvbi's feet rushed through the side of the mud house and stuck her head round the front. There was no one, except the nosy, strong, black man who scared her in the

forest.

She ran out of her father's compound, casting sharp glances over her shoulder. Sure she wasn't seen, Uvbi followed his steps.

"Do you see the trouble you have brought on my head?" Uvbi asked the man with big arms and strong legs. Nagudia stopped and turned round, his frown deepening.

"What trouble do you speak of, young maiden?"

Uvbi pressed her lips together. Is Nagudia such an old oaf as to refer to her as a young maiden? she mused.

"After rescuing me, did you have to bring me back to my father's house? Let not your good deed be evil spoken of!" she rebuked, her chin jutting out.

Nagudia folded his arms across his chest and stared at the young woman
admonishing him for saving her life.

"I see you do not consider your life of great value," he reprimanded. "But your parents do."

Her body shook with the strong waves of his presence, angry posture, his direct words and his sharp stare raking her from her bare shoulders to her hips wrapped in cotton cloth.

The breeze from the east blew hot air through her legs, setting her body on fire. Uvbi stepped back, glared at him and said.

"I will hold you responsible if my father carries out his threat. In my life, I have never seen a man so wise in his own eyes!"

"What threat?" Nagudia asked alarmed, but Uvbi disappeared into her father's compound without a backward stare.

 Uvbi's unforgiving words hit Nagudia's chest with a thud. One hand flew to his chest.
How am I going to find out what her father's threat is? Nagudia worried as his gaze remained on Edokpayi's large compound, filled with crowing cocks, laughing hens, bleating goats and sheeps. His throat tightened at the scent of impending trouble.

#RomanceQuotesMonday25

I had a great weekend. How was yours? 

Good morning and welcome to Romance Quotes Monday. 

At the start of each week, I select a few love quotes to keep your heart dancing and winking for the person you love.

You are going to have an exciting week with the two romance letters I have served up for you today.

#RomQuote1: You're Perfect To Me


I can see it in your eyes, you feel broken and unloved. Like you're just never going to be good enough. But darling, you're perfect to me. 
As cliche as it sounds. I love everything about you. The way your eyes light up when you talk about something you love. The way your smile can light up a room. 

How you care about everyone else, before yourself. Your love for literature. Your taste in music. It all just makes me love you more. But the thing that makes me love you the most, is the way you love me.
Submitted By : Lovestruckteen
#RomQuote2: The Way I Love You
I love you so much it hurts sometimes. I'm not the kind of person to get jealous but when I see you and you are talking to another girl I feel that little bit insecure. I love you so much and I hope you feel the same about me. 
I see you in the morning and in the night. Looking into your big blue sparkling eyes is beyond fascinating. You are the one I want to be with and when you whisper I love you and give me a big hug that I love. 
The way you wave and send me the cutest little text messages that remind me how much you mean. I read the messages and read them over again. I wear the sweater that reminds me of us on our first ever date. 
You mean the world to me and I want to be with you forever, you are amazing. You don't say much but you make your actions very clear and that's why I love you. If I could have anyone it would be you, and you forever and evermore.

Why is my chest pounding in Cowries From A Prince #MidWeekTease4 #Historical #Romance

I'm super delighted to welcome you to MidWeek Tease organized by Sandra Bunino. Midweek Tease is a platform for authors and writers to give a peep into their published book or Work-In-Progress.

On MidWeek Tease today, I'm excited to share a teaser from my historical romance Work-In-Progrss titled, Cowries From A Prince. This is the first time I'm sharing any part of this manuscript.

In this scene, Nagudia, the bronze caster and warrior (hero) has just rescued the young maiden, Uvbi (heroine) from a fall in the bush path. In the land of Igodomigodo in the 1700s, young maidens are a target of enemy warriors.

Enjoy The Teaser! 

Teaser from Cowries From A Prince

 Before Irinmwian could utter a word, Nagudia rushed in with dishevelled Uvbi hot on his heels.

  ‘Oba ghator ‘kpere,’ meaning-long live the King, Nagudia greeted with the quiet dignity of a Prince.

Hands behind his back, his eyes filled with worry, Uvbi's father, Edokpayi responded. ‘Ise,’ meaning Amen. ‘What brings you here, Nagudia? Did you return my spear?’ he asked.
Uvbi

 Nagudia shook his head. ‘No, sir. I haven’t completed the repair of your spear.’ Pointing at Uvbi, he voiced his source of worry. ‘I heard a loud scream in the bush on this hot market day. When I went after the voice, it was that of Uvbi.’ Her parents questioning eyes strayed to their daughter’s.

  ‘I only took the short footpath to the market. Then I heard footsteps...and as I was rushing, I fell.’ Uvbi confessed, darting an accusing look at her rescuer. ‘He scared me...’
Nagudia

 Hissing and sighing, Irinmwian, Uvbi's mother
clapped her hands together in disbelief as she turned her head towards her husband.

‘My husband, I’ve told Uvbi never to take the footpath to the market or to the stream or to anywhere.' Facing her daughter, she placed both hands on her head and wailed.

Nagudia stared at the shocked parents. ‘Our enemies lurk around those thick bushes lying in wait to take our people captive.' Then, he faced the woman he rescued. 'Why didn’t you listen to your mother, Uvbi?’ he asked, his eyes drifting from her head to her chest, to her feet and back to her breast, staring as if in a traunce.

Uvbi's body shook with a strange vibration and she immediately clamped her thighs together. Why is Nagudia staring at me in that particular way? Uvbi asked herself.

The wall of her chest pounded and her breasts danced with excitement to the drum beats of her heart. She dropped her gaze. I have never felt this urgent need for my body to be touched before, her heart wondered.
