Six Sentence Sunday

Welcome to my SSS! For the next two months, I'm highlighting one of my Zodiac books, Capricorn: Forgotten Faces. Caleb has had a peek into Leandro's memories and learned he's telling the truth about their acquaintance. The heightened emotions has driven them to bed, where Caleb gets his first good look at the tattoo he doesn't remember giving Leandro.

...The sweeping curves were utterly smooth, each symbol balanced, each integration perfect. His erect nipple was at its center, but the marks heightened his appeal rather than suppressed it. I wondered how he’d felt as I’d given it to him, if it had hurt when my blood had burned its way into his skin. I could imagine him stoic in the face of pain, eyes steady on mine as I did the task, love shining in their depths.

Without thinking, I bent my head and dragged my tongue along the uppermost symbol. Leandro shuddered and arched away from the bed.
