11 November 2017:

As Christiane France, I write LGBT, MTS, PA, and RO. My alter ego, Chris Grover, writes MTS. This is a weekly blog hop where participants post 8-10 sentences from a published work or a work in progress. The blog posts go live between 12:00 noon Saturday and 9:00a.m. Sunday. It’s a great way to discover new authors and expand networks. So be sure to visit and check out all the WeekendWritingWarriors blogs.

For this week’s edition of WeekendWritingWarriors I have yet another snippet from Where’s Michelle, a romantic mystery-suspense. The emotional stress of her daughter’s disappearance is starting to tell on Julie and just for a moment she becomes a little distracted…

Where’s Michelle

She looked up only to wish she hadn't. Simon's eyes weren't black as she'd thought, but an incredible velvety navy blue. Hot, sexy eyes that held her prisoner as his head moved down to close the gap between them.
          His lips skimmed her nose and lightly touched her mouth. They felt cool and smelled of toothpaste. She closed her eyes almost afraid to breathe as the tip of his tongue slid warmly and wetly along her own lips in a devastating assault on her senses. The feather light touch created sensations she'd never experienced before. An exquisite sensual torture that filled her head with erotic images and sent the blood surging through her veins.
          “If you want me to stop, tell me now,” he said, his breath a warm whisper across her face as he teased her lips apart.
          Her hands moved upward and her fingers tangled in his dark hair.

Where’s Michelle is a story about a woman whose child disappears in the chaos of a traffic accident.
American Julie Leighton knew almost nothing about her husband, other than the fact he was English. Then Vic was killed, apparently the victim of a mugger, while he was away from Boston on a business trip. A short time later, Julie received a call from a man who claimed to be her father-in-law, inviting Julie and her nine-year old daughter, Michelle, to visit him and his wife in England.
          Shortly after they arrive at London's Heathrow Airport, the trip becomes a nightmare. The hotel shuttle bus is involved in a traffic accident, and Julie wakes up in hospital to find Michelle has vanished.
As Julie is leaving the hospital in search of her daughter, she runs into Simon Winter. Simon was also on the bus and, like Julie, sustained a few minor injuries in the accident. He has no idea what happened to Michelle, but offers to help Julie find her.
Julie accepts, unaware Simon is posing as a businessman and fellow traveler to gain her confidence. He’s actually Detective Inspector Simon Winter, a member of a special security unit whose job is to protect members of the British government from harm. They recently received a tip Julie's late husband was blackmailing a prominent British politician, and that Julie intends to pick up where Vic left off.
          Whether it’s true or not, it needs to be checked out, and Simon’s had Julie under surveillance from the moment her plane landed.
