Weekend Writing Warriors #8sunday (RO)(ER)

It's Sunday and time for the Weekend Writing Warriors. Participants post 8-10 sentences from a writing project, either published or unpublished. Today it's another bit from The Leonardo Chronicles a bind-up of my award-winning, Victorian polyamorous series Loving Leonardo.

First my 10, followed by details~
We’d all been helplessly tossed upon a course that wasn’t of our own making, and it remained to us to survive it.

Small, nearly imperceptible changes unfolded before me as though a beam of sunlight passed over her portrait in a mightily compressed sense of time. I watched her pupils slightly dilate as they searched from one to the other of my own. The shift of emotion showed first in her eyes. This I felt it as much as I witnessed it, for more than our minds were connected; our hearts and souls were linked. Hunting down Leonardo’s book had been a lark. But what began as a lark had bloomed into companionship, commonality, and profound love between the three of us. Especially between us two. She needed me as I needed her, as we needed him.

Her face turned to my palm and I felt her kiss upon it.

What just happened~

Luca is missing and a murdering madman is at large. Nicolas and Ellie are strung tight as bow strings with worry. Prior to this scene, Nicolas finds his wife in a gaming salon disguised as a young man. When he gets her home, tears of fear and frustration follow. London is a big place and Nicolas doesn't know where to look next. Needless to say, tensions are high.

What's at the heart of this unusual love story? 
Loving Leonardo has a message of tolerance between the lines. Aside from that, it's an exciting, sexy romp through Victorian Europe on a quest for a book written and illustrated by Leonardo da Vinci for his homosexual lover Salai. Discover the story in The Leonardo Chronicles.
