I was debating if I'd wanted to share more from "Skipping Down the Primrose Path: Book Three" of my Vala's Story serial; after some thought, some discussion with my beta reader, I decided to move on to "The Beginning of Knowledge: Book Four"- isn't that an amusingly ironic title? But yes, after the novella of "Out of the Night: Book One," just novel-length "Gates of the Garden: Book Two"- the twin longer books of "Skipping" and "Knowledge" give me a lovely source of material to tease people on hops like this. For at least a few weeks between this hop and #WIP-Wednesday, you'll probably get some of this fun book with The Queen, Vala, and their huge family.
I figure there's 2 taboos functioning here, maybe 3; what do you think they are? If you want to read more of this scene, come back tomorrow to enjoy my longer sharing for #WIP-Wednesday.

His free hand moved between her legs. "I love to see the fear in your eyes." He pushed her lips apart. His thumb pressed against her clit.
