I apologize for this tardiness. I posted this last night, but Blogger failed to publish it. For these blog tours, authors offer 7 words, sentences or paragraphs for your reading enjoyment.
My seven sentences are from the soon-to-be-released fantasy in the photo below. The original was published by Amber Heat as Tears Of The Dragon and was erotic. Now I've reduced the erotic to sensual, given it a new title and a new cover to self-publish it. Watch for it on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, All Romance eBooks, iBooks, Kobo and Smashwords about the end of the first week in June.

gleaming sunlight, standing in the stirrups as he drew his bow and shot from
the running horse, would never leave her. Nor would the sound of his horse's
hooves pounding across the grassy field as his battle cry shattered the morning
Here was a man straight and strong, who honored women and was willing to
fight for her when they hadn't even met. Chivalry, she thought. They called it
chivalry, didn't they?
An emotion she couldn't put a name to rippled through her chest.
He'd reeked unpleasantly of sweat from the exertion of the fight, but when
he kissed her hand, tiny olfins opened their wings and flitted in her chest. And
when his lips touched her palm, his mouth warm and caressing against her skin,
she might as well have had a hive of bees humming where she sat her saddle. The
sensations created wonderful urges foreign to her.
She'd wanted his mouth against hers. Wanted to experience something
different from what her kind knew. And most of all, she wanted to know if these
sensations she was feeling were what mating would be like. Perhaps she could
convince him to teach her. . .
