Forgetting about Forgetting to Remember you #sexysnippets

New Year and I am attempting to breath new life into my old sheikh story. There have been plot changes and the working title will have to go....for what I don't know. The characters remain the same and their emotional conflict is still consistently interrupting the romance of the piece. Perhaps with some subtle changes I will finish it.  We can only hope! :)

So this weeks seven sentences for sexy snippets comes from mid way through this never ending tale. The hero is fighting his desire for the heroine and she is resigned to the disappointment. 

Quietly he drew away and ran an idle thumb across her collar bone. 
“You are a most exquisite beauty,” he said, “Yet I cannot take what you offer.”
The words registered immediately with her. It would be difficult to misunderstand the way he stepped away from her, or how he would not quite look at her. Like a pin puncturing a pretty balloon the air in her lungs expelled in a rush of hurried breath as the shock change in his manner hit her.
Just as swiftly her survival instincts kicked in, the need to preserve some self respect forced a weary smile from her lips.

“Again we find ourselves here.” She said with no hint of irony.
