My Sexy Saturday ~ The rules are simple  
Post 7 paragraphs or 7 sentences or 7 words from a WIP or published work

With a little prompt from our wonderful MSS host Lynn, this week's My Sexy Saturday is how your characters fall in love. So I picked one of my favourites, Niall and Rose from You Found Me, a Scottish/British historical romance.

She looked toward the voice. Niall was by the window, holding the babe upright with the tiny blond head snuggled against his cheek. The rest of his little body fitted against Niall’s massive chest, held by his strong gentle hands.
She fell in love, right there and then, with the pair of them. Her heart pounded in her chest, her mind swirling. She could not live without them; they were hers. Her men. The pair of them looked so right together. Her son’s paleness against Niall’s darkness. But she knew in her heart it was all wrong. She must tell Niall the truth, she thought for the thousandth time. She owed it to him. He had given everything of himself and more. Honesty, acceptance, security, and his love, and how had she repaid him? With omission and silence.

As the writer, I fell in love with Niall long before I wrote this scene.  Sigh...
And Lynn, I apologize again for breaking the 7 rule! ;) 
Perhaps I should stop posting the rules, or ya know, obey them. :)

  1. Now I'm a little in love with Niall. What is it about a man cradling a baby that does us in...?

  2. Nice except. There really is something about a man gently holding a baby that makes him even stronger.
