Sunday Sneak Peek of Mona Lisa's Room -- by Vonnie Davis


A SIX PARAGRAPH SNEAK PEEK --

Ms. Moore stood just outside the bathroom as if frozen to the spot. Her face was pale, her blue eyes wide with fright. Being scared was one thing, but being immobilized with terror would not help her. He had to make her angry, hoping to tap into her passion. What could he say to piss her off again?

“Well, Mrs. Moore, you no longer resemble a sloppy American.” Fact was she looked good in that low-cut sundress. Damned good. While he’d always been a leg man, he had a healthy appreciation for the breast portion of the female anatomy, and her breasts were quite eye-catching. The wide skirt that emphasized her trim waist skimmed shapely calves. The woman was trouble in a sexy little package.

His calling her Mrs. was evidently like a cold slap to her face. She gave the desired response. “Let me give you a lesson in life, Niko. Never call a woman who endured twelve years of a cold marriage to a cheating husband by the title Mrs.” She grabbed her purse and slung it over her shoulder.

He fought back a smile. “Yes, ma’am.”

She fisted her hands on her hips and glared at him. “Lesson number two. Never call a woman, who is one day shy of turning forty, ma’am. My first name, Alyson, will do nicely.”

He retrieved her carry-on from the bed and opened the door a crack. After checking the hallway and finding it empty, he glanced back over his shoulder, winked and purposely lowered his voice to a sensual purr. “Anything else you’d like to teach me, Aly?”

Ha! Great peek, Vonnie! He knows how to get under her skin. I remember the first time someone called me "ma'am." It was a boy cashier at a grocery store. I was horrified and I was a lot younger than 39! :)

Delynn, yeah I remember that awful moment, too. Now I'm so old, young men want to help me across the street. And if they're good looking, I let 'em! Thanks for stopping by.

Oh I so loved the banter here! Great snippet!!

Vonnie Davis said...

Thanks Karen. I'd written the scene for an assignment in an online workshop on adding sensuality to one's writing. The instructor of the course loved it so much, she said it had to go into a book.

She's going to teach him a LOT, isn't she, Vonnie? Might even get to like being an Aly? I like it!

Vonnie Davis said...

Yes, Nancy, she does teach him a lot and she learns a lot about her own strenth, too. Thanks for stopping by!

It took three hours of Duck Dynasty to read this but it was well worth the diligence to finish! Love it, V. I enjoy Ally's spirit. Happy Sunday!

Angela Adams said...

Thanks for the sneak peak.

Vonnie Davis said...

Sara, thanks so much. Getting a box of your books is always cause for celebration, isn't it? Of course I cry over them, but then I'm an emotional ninny like that.

Vonnie Davis said...

Duck Dynasty? Wh...what is duck dynasty? I'm glad you enjoyed Aly and her spunk. (to self...duck dynasty...must go google that...)
