Well, I think I’ve finally settled on a title for the WIP formally known as Araneae. The hero said something a few pages back that struck a chord with me. I think it fits the heroine, and the book. Baring complications down the line, I rather like it. 😉
I steeled my spine, ready for punishment. I deserved no less than his worst for what I’d done.
His large palms landed with such force upon my shoulders, my knees buckled beneath the weight of them. Leaning in close, I trembled as anise on his breath filled me with his scent. Lips I knew to be soft were ice hard now. His voice lowered as he said, “This is going to hurt.”

Jenna McCormick says
Oh but is it going to be the good kind of hurt? Sometimes the warnings are worse than the follow through.
Heather Thurmeier says
I hope next weeks six pick up directly from where these six end. Cruel to leave us hanging like this! LOL. Congrats on figuring out a title. Sometimes those come very fast and easy, other times it’s a real struggle to find the perfect fit.
