Weekend Writing Warriors

It's Sunday and I'm participating in the Weekend Writing Warriors mini hop! The deal is to post 8 sentences from a writing project, published or unpublished. I'm offering another small sampling from my unusual Victorian polyamorous romance written with a touch of reader-interactive art history: Loving Leonardo (book 1 in the series).

First my 8, then details follow:
She held up a hand to interrupt me. “Please, hear me out. I consider myself to be a progressive. You see, I don’t care what adults do behind closed doors. An individual’s nature and sexuality form the most intrinsic core of their person. And who are we to take issue with another’s nature? Only a fool would see one path to human intimacy. We are naked apes after all, and apes have no issue with homosexuality.”

I couldn’t fault her logic.

Setting the scene: If Nicolas is surprised by his guest's candor, he's about to be floored by her marriage proposal.

 Here's the story

"A real tour de force, Loving Leonardo. It unflinchingly tells the truth about many persons' intrinsic bisexuality, and also reveals the 'underside' of fine art." "a superb synthesis of violent sadism with erotic refinement and delicacy - truly both sides of the coin. There is the additional suspense of the crime thriller - the theft of a precious book to curtail its destruction." "Rose, I find your heroine very Henry Jamesian. I appreciate your application of the best features of the traditional novel to today's expanded boundaries of candor. Accolades again, and may I see more?"
