Ringing in the New Year with Six Sentence Sunday

January 1, 2012

When D.C. mentioned that she was taking a well-deserved vacation and intended to allow a few guests to take over her blog while she was gone, I was thrilled! As a YA author, I don’t get to write as much of the “fun” stuff as D.C. (I’ll mention that this is for the best, as I could never match D.C.’s talents)! *Insert double entendre alert here*

Dipping into romantic elements must be done with care and finesse by a YA author to ensure the writing stays true to the genre. Sensuality is a part of romantic connections, though, and thus a really important part of YA romance. For today’s Six Sentence Sunday post, I thought I’d share part of one of my favorite sensual scenes from Foretold, the third book of my Daughters of Saraqael YA fantasy/romance trilogy:

“When she pressed her lips against the pulse pounding in his neck, he turned his head the slightest bit and rubbed his mouth against the tantalizing curve where her neck met her shoulder. Her skin was amazingly soft. Her scent was driving him crazy. He found himself trailing his lips up higher. When she issued a sound like a sigh and a moan and tilted her head to give him better access, it sent pleasure lancing through him like spears of lightning. His hands moved up her back, caressing the bare skin exposed to him as she kissed the line of his jaw and moved closer to his mouth.”

I hope I’ve piqued your, ahem, interest. If you’d like to check out the trilogy, you can start with Becoming, available for Kindle and in paperback on ( and in most other e-bookstores!
