Six Sentence Sunday!

Welcome to my corner of Six Sentence Sunday! I'm getting to the end of my WIP, tentatively called Arctic Curse (although I think I prefer Arctic Light, and either would work). It's paranormal, set in Manitoba, near the town of Churchill, which is known as the polar bear capital of the world. It's just after midnight here in London, Ontario, and I'm posting this before I go to bed, because later this morning I'm going to my first ever Powwow! I'm very excited, and hope to have some pictures to share.

In this six sentence snippet the heroine, Tasha, is re-learning what it means to have the hero, Finn, back in her life. I hope you enjoy it!

“Shh, sweetheart,” he whispered, his hands trailing slowly over her hips and thighs. “Let me take care of you.”
Shudders chased over her skin and she yearned to cry out again, demand satisfaction, but when he played the game this way it was even more thrilling, so she forced her body to stillness. Yet, even knowing what was happening, the wave of longing his words inspired was still a little shocking. Only with him was she content to let him do whatever he wanted to her body. Only he could demand she be quiescent and passive, tied down and helpless—his love slave—and make her crazy with need.
