#MySexySaturday An Artist's Masterful Lifelike Strokes #erotic #timetravel

Welcome to the 120th week of My Sexy Saturday
This week’s theme: A Sexy Galaxy
Readers, please visit us at our new Author Central where we’ll be sharing even more from our authors besides Saturday’s snippets. We’d love to have each and every one of you there as we’re starting things this week and hope to bring you lots of fun and even some prizes along the way.

This week’s theme is A Sexy Galaxy. This is our nod to our sci-fi romance authors. We love those stories that come from beyond our galaxy. They can even start in our galaxy and end up far, far away…we don’t care…as we love those stories that remind us of love in a different time and space. We even love those aliens…so keep them coming! 

How about a time-travel story. Here's an extract from Lost Time...

Hannah pulled on a pair of warm socks then hung her legs over the side of the bed. She worked her head from side to side, trying to relieve the knot in her neck that she believed to be the source of the headache. 

Hannah heard it again. A sigh. 

Her head snapped up, causing pain to burst from behind her eyes. When her vision cleared, she shrieked and scrambled up onto the bed. 

There was a man. At least, the portrait of a man.  

“Ohh!” she breathed, as she stared at the full-length painting. The figure leaned casually on a sword. The huge frame dominated the whole wall.  

Hannah slowly climbed from the bed and approached cautiously, almost waiting for something else to jump out and spook the shit out of her.  

“How on earth did I not see this?” she whispered, nearing the image. He was the most beautiful man she’d ever laid eyes on. His features were perfectly masculine and artfully aristocratic. His eyes were dark and intense, but the artist had highlighted the inner iris with tiny white strokes, making it seem as if his eyes were lit from within. They sparkled with curiosity as though he were really seeing her. She looked into the dark orbs, holding her breath—transfixed, waiting, watching for them to shift or blink. But, of course, they remained still. She released the breath on a chuckle at her own silliness. What a marvellously talented artist to have made him look so lifelike.
