Horny Hump Day—Nadya and Pasha

My What’s Up Wednesday post is here.

Warning:  Not safe for work or appropriate for those under 18!

Welcome back to Horny Hump Day, a weekly hop where writers share three erotic sentences of a book or WIP. This week I’m introducing one of my favorite couples, whom I created when I was all of 16 years old and starting the second major phase of my first Russian historical. Nadezhda Lebedeva and Pavel Teglyov have been in love since they met as teenagers, and Pavel never cared that his girlfriend was the head prostitute in his benefactors’ brothel, nor that her innocence was stolen by the Bolsheviks who murdered her parents when she was fifteen.

They finally ran away and made their way to Estonia, hoping to sail to America, but they ended up at the wrong place in the wrong time. Nadya was discovered in Lyuba and Ivan’s place, and wasn’t fast enough to get away with Pasha. She was given ten years in Siberia for being a work-shirker, and then had two more years pasted on when she let it be known she’d been a prostitute.

In March 1933, she was released, and made her way to America with an unexpected friend. She initially believed Pasha’s phony wedding ring was real, but soon understood it was only to deter suitors and that he still loved only her. They rekindled their long-ago romance, and now, in June 1933, are finally married at age thirty-one. Like Lyuba and Ivan, it’s a pairing of a virginal man with a far from virginal woman, but he’s the only man she’s been with out of love.

***

Nadézhda wastes no time and immediately slips off her wedding dress, grateful she chose a loose-fitting style she didn’t need to be laced, hooked, corseted, or buttoned up into by several people.  When Pável walks into their new shared bedroom and sees her in just a slip, silk stockings, and a camisole, he turns into a giant smile.

“Are you just going to look all night?” she teases him.

Author:

I started reading at three (my first book was Grimm's Fairy Tales, the uncensored adult version), started writing at four, started writing book-length things at eleven, and have been a writer ever since. I predominantly write historical fiction family sagas/series. I primarily write about young people, since I was a young person myself when I became a serious writer and didn't know how to write about adults as main characters. I only write in a contemporary setting if the books naturally go into the modern era over the course of the decades-long stories being told over many books. I've always been drawn to books, films, music, fashions, et al, from bygone eras, and have never really been too much into modern things. If something or someone has appeal for all time, it'll still be there to be discovered after the initial to-do has died down. For example, my second-favorite writer enjoyed a huge burst of popularity in the Sixties and Seventies, but he wrote his books from 1904-43, and his books still resonate today, even after he's no longer such a fad. Quality lasts for all time.

  1. Very playful, and like Helen, I’m sure he’s going to do more than look. BTW, are Pasha and Pavel the same person? I thought perhaps Pasha was Pavel’s nickname, but wasn’t sure.

  2. I’m sure he’s glad her dress was easily gotten rid of as well. 🙂 I suspect their night is going to be a mixture of sweet and sensual love making. And about time! Sweet snippet!
