Tuesday Tales

Word prompt- package

Separating his mouth from her she said in a whispered sensual voice, “Think we got time for some hot sweaty sex?”

“Not.” Toby said from beside them.

Sort of embarrassed at being caught Jessica dropped her head against Ronny’s well-muscled chest. “Damn. You know what a good workout does for me?”

“Yeah,” Ronny whispered before releasing her.

“Okay, why not?” Jessica asked, peering around Ronny to Martina.

“Cause John’s got activity on the GPS tracker on Alfonso’s yacht. Seems it’s heading out to sea. From what Martina learned with a phone call he’s got a woman with him. And this girl fits the description of the kind he likes.”

“Great,” Jessica said stepping back from Ronny. “Sorry babe. Later and that’s a promise.”

He responded with a kiss on her cheek and a slap on her butt to send her in to change.

He watched as she bolted for the house, smiling as he watched her hips sway side-to-side and thinking about the promise for later, knowing she’d want to get out of the wet suit. He then followed Martina and Toby in but was side tracked when Paschal called to him.

“Did it arrive?” he asked mentally crossing his fingers.

“Yes,” Paschal said, handing over a plain brown wrapped package.

“No, keep it until I’m ready for it. I know the time’s right but not the setting. It’s got to be romantic which this place isn’t.”

“Fear not my friend. I’ll protect it with my life, after telling my wife or she’ll kill me. Then we’ll work on helping you find the right place.”

“Good, now this has to be kept a secret from everyone. Understood.”

Paschal nodded he was in agreement then Ronny watched as he headed for the kitchen to tell his wife.

When Ronny entered the office he was met with curious stares from everyone save Jessica who hadn’t gotten there yet.

“Don’t ask.” Was all he said.

“Don’t ask what,” Jessica asked as she entered.

“John wanted to know how long until we eat. Seems the bouillabaisse smell is driving him crazy,” Ronny lied, hoping she’d believe him.

“I know. Same here but my guess is another half hours.” Jessica said before turning her attention to John. “So, what’ve we got.”

“Right now I’m not really sure. Alfonso’s yacht left port then twenty minutes later turned around and returned. Now there’s no activity, from my spies tell me.”

To return to the main blog click on the picture of the books, but before you do please notice three of the titles: Ice Queen, Red Queen and White Queen. I’m beyond pleased to announce not only did these but three more A Jessica Sales Novel have been sold to Secret Cravings Publishing.

Ice Queen is scheduled for release in June, followed by Red Queen in September and White Queen in December.

The others: Rodeo Queen, Death Queen and Snow Queen will release in 2014.
