Lust is No Curse – Seven #SexySnippets on #MySexySaturday

Ocean’s Gift by Demelza Carlton in to the Houtman Abrolhos Islands for the first time, Joe listens in to the pilot’s commentary for the tourists on the flight:

“The Abrolhos is cursed, with murder, mutiny and lust,” the pilot said suddenly, as the mist on the water resolved into some very flat islands. “On a stormy night almost 400 years ago, the Dutch ship Batavia was sailing from the Cape of Good Hope to Batavia in Indonesia. The lookout saw what he thought was moonlight on the water, but it was foam of the breakers on Morning Reef…”

I wasn’t clear on where mutiny came in, but the lust involved either some women or the treasure that had been on the ship. Maybe both.

Well, he could take the first two and maybe the cursed, too. He was right about the lust, but it sure didn’t seem like a curse to me.

Seven sentences from Ocean’s Gift for for My Sexy Saturday and The Nuthouse Scribblers Sexy Snippets.
