Welcome back, Six Sentence Sunday readers! I’m continuing with Weathering Rock again today, my upcoming time-travel / paranormal release from Lyrical Press. I hope you’ll join me in October for the novel when it finally hits the e-book “shelves.”
Last week, I left my hero, Colonel Caleb DeCardian, (formerly of the Union Army during America’s Civil War, now transplanted to modern day) thinking about Arianna Hart, a woman he’s recently met. He’s attracted, she’s attracted, but of course, there’s friction between them. After a rocky start, Arianna has left in a huff. This is from Caleb’s POV as he continues to think of her.
In his day, there was no such thing as casual sex. There’d been a handful of women he could call on if, and when, he’d felt the need to satisfy his natural instincts. Prostitutes and camp followers trailed after regiments and brigades, and brothels were abundant in most of the larger towns.
In the present world he’d had to adapt, knowing he couldn’t afford prying questions or emotional entanglements. Men still gathered in drinking establishments—now called bars—women too. He’d learned some of the females were eager to take him home for the night, as keen as he was for a few hours of pleasure.
There are many other Six Sentence Sunday offerings available for reading, so be sure to check out the website and the many talented authors who are participating. Thanks in advance should you like to leave a comment. I’m finding SSS fun, informative, and a wonderful way to meet authors and readers!
