Six Sentence Sunday - How to Rescue a Pirate - Rescuing Cap'n Hartwell


Welcome back, Sixers! I hope your week went well and I'm glad to see you back here. Be welcome. Pull up a chair and enjoy a little weird, wild, and wicked. :D I really appreciate your comments. They make my day and let me know there is an audience out there! ;) There are several other authors who participate in Six Sentence Sunday and a few of my favorites are Cara Michaels, JoAnn Ross, Lynne Murray and Stacey Kennedy.

Today I'm introducing Samantha and Captain Marcus "Hartwell" from a little story called How to Rescue a Pirate. Sam has been searching for him in hopes of repaying his kindness and perhaps getting a little more of it. 

            Sam felt the giddy excitement of success and the burning arousal she only experienced when looking at him. After her husband, she hadn’t been able to stand the touch of any male, though she’d put up with the butt slaps and the pinches while a barmaid in the tavern. But Captain “Hartwell”, her own Blackheart, made her feel as if she could stand to have his hands on her, though he’d never touched her. Some unacknowledged part of her wanted his hands on her; on all of her.
She leaned against the wall near the fireplace and watched him as he dozed and brooded on his bench, his eyes barely focusing on what was going on around him. It looked like he needed rescuing, if only from his own drunkenness.

Who says heroes are always men? ;) Thanks for stopping by and I hope your week is great. For those celebrating this week, Happy Thanksgiving! See you after the holidays. Happy reading! :)

  23. Great beginning--sounds like she's looking for a rescue as well.

  24. I agree with Karysa in favor of mutual rescuing. H also sound like he's guessed not to lay hands on her till she comes to him--not your usual pirate! An intriguing six. Also thanks for the shout out--as one fan of rogues to another!
