Sexy in History by Marie Tuhart #mysexysaturday

It's that time again for My Sexy Saturday.

This week's theme:  Sexy in History

Well, I don't write historical, but I could include a food scene.  This is 7 paragraphs from my book His For the Weekend, Marcus has cooked dinner for Cassie in his home. 

          “You’re not eating.” She dabbed her lips.
          “I’m not hungry for food.”
          Cassie held her breath when Marcus leaned forward, but all he did was remove her empty plate and replace it with a covered one. With a flourish, he lifted the lid.
          Pasta with shrimp. Her stomach grumbled while the delicious scent filled her brain. Without hesitation, she picked up her fork and dug in, knowing Marcus was staring at her. But she couldn’t help herself—she was hungry. The pasta practically melted on her tongue. She wasn’t a bad cook, but her pasta never tasted like this.
          You like?” There was a hint of amusement in his voice.
          “Love it. You’re a great cook. My pasta always sticks or is tough.”
          “Add a little olive oil to the water when it boils—it helps stop the sticking. As for the toughness.” He leaned forward when she set her fork down. “You’re not cooking it long enough. Everything is better when it simmers for a while.”  It wasn’t just cooking he was talking about by the heat in his gaze.
