Six Sentence Sunday-Fractured Paradise


Hello again! Welcome back for another snippet of Fractured Paradise, my romantic suspense novella coming to you soon! This week's snippet picks up right from last week's. You can reread last week's here. Hope you enjoy!

Aidan closed his eyes and pressed the heel of his palm against his forehead.

“Hey, are you all right?” she asked.

The gentle caress of her voice was almost as deadly as the fair touch of her fingertips to his wrist. His blood steamed under his skin, tinder threatening to burn with an ache so deep he’d forgotten what it felt like. So long he’d gone without a woman in his life, in his bed. Perhaps this was his body’s way of saying 'get on with it'.
