#8Sunday #SexySnippets #WeekendWritingWarriors: The Witches' Mischief 3

Happy Sunday, lovelies!
 
Today I'm offering another 8 from my recently contracted novel The Three Thieves and the Dom, book 3 of The Witches' Mischief series. 
 
Last week we were with Conall while he was on his way to find his girls. This week, I'm giving you a few lines from one of the girl's perspective. Grace is alone and remembering Conall...

#SexySnippets and #8Sunday Sentences  
  

Slipping off her gloves, Grace placed them together with her bonnet on top of one of the trunks. She stared at the chest directly in front of her. Softly, she placed her palm on the rough surface, running her fingers over it and feeling every dent and splint of the wood. She missed him. It was silly, really, but touching his things made her feel closer to him.

She closed her eyes, remembering his musky scent and the way his rugged jaw scratched her skin 
 
every time he kissed her. She loved it. She loved the burn he left behind mingled with the soft touch 
 
of his lips.

The Three Thieves and The Dom - Book 3 of The Witches' Mischief Series

Conall Dougal, infamous rake, wakes up one morning to find his most precious possessions have been stolen by the women he loves. Devastated, he goes in their search determined to find them and extract the truth from them in any way possible.  

Penelope, Isidora and Grace are on the run. They’ve committed a crime and left behind the man they love. Presumably safe, they are stunned when he turns up ready to claim them back and discover the truth.

But, what is the truth? And will Conall’s special kind of coaxing make them speak?*

  2. Nice! You made a real connection with this, I think: "She missed him. It was silly, really, but touching his things made her feel closer to him."

    I remember when my father died, and how mom gave away most of his clothing to charity. But she kept a few things until she died. And it was because it kept him near to her. Good 8!
