Six Sentence Sunday – May 6, 2012: Six from An Unexpected Return #sixsunday

Thank you to each and every one of you for reading and commenting
on my excerpts each week.  I truly appreciate your time. :)

Today, my six comes from An Unexpected Return, the second story to be released May 30 as part of Decadent Publishing’s new science fiction romance line, Elatia.

This is a conversation between the heroine, Xia, and her trainer in erotic massage.
Jacobus has just told her about her first appointment.

“All right.” The words came out as a squeak. “Am I, um…? Do I have to sleep with him?”

He snorted in amusement. “Do you mean have sex with him, or literally sleep beside him in the bed?”
