Sexy Snippets - Behind The Make-up

Welcome, and thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you are enjoying your Sunday?

Sexy Snippets is brought to you but an group of writers from The Nuthouse Scribblers. Each week we show seven sentences from either a current manuscript or a published book, for you to enjoy.

Today I have chosen my seven sentences from my current WIP, Behind The Make-up. This scene is about a singer, who has just lost her brother in a horrific accident. Gareth, her body guard, is by her side as always.

Her head bent low as she rested her forehead against his chest. “I don’t want to be alone,” she said, her voice only just audible to Gareth. He placed a hand on the back of her neck and stroked her hair.

“You won’t be,” he tried to assure her. “I’ll watch while you sleep.”
Beth looked up into his eyes. His heart skipped a beat with pain the way her eyes glistened with fresh tears.

I hope you enjoyed that little snippet. Don't forget to check out all the other writers taking part this week. You can find them all here:


I love hearing your comments, so please feel free to leave on. Until next time, take care.
