Weekend Writing Warriors #74

            Hi and welcome to this week's Eight sentences. Today I am continuing with eight from my new release, 'Fevered Kisses' an anthology of lust. This week I am continuing with the second story 'Too Darn Hot' carrying on from where we left off last time:

                                                       MY EIGHT:
Miranda’s home was around 25 minutes away and Jamie was obviously impressed as they drove up the sweeping private road to park on the gravel in front.
“Wow!” was all he could say.
Elderberry cottage stood in the most beautiful grounds. The gardens were ornate and heavy with carefully nurtured shrubs, many in flower. The house was a whitewashed Tudor home with stark black paintwork and a thatched roof, one wall was completely covered in wisteria flowers; it was a delight to behold. Excitedly Jamie climbed out of the car and was thrilled to see, at the side of the house, a tennis court slightly obscured from view by a wall of carefully pruned conifers.

Miranda led him through to the kitchen; from here the pool could clearly be seen, it was a rich blue oasis which reflected the sun’s rays along its gentle ripples.
